Certain Truth (Untimely Meditations or Unfashionable Observations)

Certain Truth

Certain Truth: Human beings are mortal—A truth as certain as you can get. If you always pray for safety or healing, sooner or later it isn’t going to work.

How is it that people lose their faith when someone dies? Did they not understand that “death and taxes” are certain? Perhaps feeling like they have a close personal relationship to God entitles them to be the exception to certainty.

If we are to pray “God’s will be done,” perhaps we can pray for someone suffering horribly that today be a good day to die.


Untimely Meditations or Unfashionable Observations are meant to provoke thought. They are not necessarily meant to convey the author’s actual opinion, and may be hypothetical in nature. The style is inspired by a certain oft-misunderstood European philosopher of the late 19th Century (he would have preferred to be called a European philosopher rather than a German philosopher) – “Dionysus.”
