TRANSPARENCY PDF Print

Transparency has become a catchword in our culture today.  Yet, it becomes readily apparent that the word “transparency” can have varying degrees of meaning.

Terms are what’s important.

If I can phrase a statement with any degree of vagueness – then that gives me or someone defining my statement or statements wiggle room.  This tendency, at least to my understanding, renders the term transparency moot.  If I can conveniently shift meaning, then there is actually no true meaning.

Apply this thought process to the words of Christ found in John 14:

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through Me.’”  John 14:6 (ESV)

Consider:
Is there any wiggle room?
Any vagueness?
Any question of intent?

These words were framed and spoken to be direct, clear, and consequential.  No further meetings regarding details or intent needed – just acceptance and implementation.

Christ is completely transparent – He’s the only way to life!

– Dale
