Sincerity Is Not a Test of Truth

By
Real Estate Agent with North Eastern Group Realty

Sincerity is not a test of truth.

Sincerity is not a test of truth.  Sincerity is a test of magnitude of belief. Gandhi was sincere, but so was Stalin. JFK and Ronald Reagan? Sincere. But Hitler was sincere as well. We can believe fervently, with never-ending sincerity and STILL be dead wrong. Our leaders, on both sides of the isle, are certainly sincere. Their life experiences have led them to their current belief systems.

Here's what I've learned: Receiving handouts destroys our self worth. Lack of self-worth impedes our ability to take action in our own best interest. And lack of taking action in our own best interest invariably leads to neediness. Yet life will not respond favorably to neediness, to victims. Life responds not to what a person needs, but rather what he has labored for, mentally, physically and emotionally.

Bad breaks? Sure. Hiccups? Of course. But over the long run, those who have done the hard work and exerted the discipline will be rewarded. Those who expected something for nothing will lead a life of frustration. These are natural laws that you and I cannot alter!

If we want a nation of cripples then let's just keep handing out crutches.  Our future as a country will not be determined by the needs of our citizens. It will be determined by what we deserve through our level of discipline, our work ethic, and our willingness to accept the natural laws that regulate our existence.

If you believe me to be off course here, please help me understand where I have gone wrong.  I am interested in reason, not name calling or finger pointing, please.  If your life experiences have led you to a different conclusion please chime in.  I sincerely would like to hear your opinions.

Most sincerely,

Chris Sanderson

"...those who have done the hard work and exerted the discipline will be rewarded."  Especially if those are directed at things they are naturally good at.  The government is naturally good at building roads and armies.  It is not naturally good at helping the poor.  Churches and non-profit charities are pretty stinky at building roads and armies, but do a dang fine job of helping the poor.  We gotta get that straight.
