As Jesus had said: “Search and you will find. The one who searches always finds” (Mt. 7:7). Hence it is important then we seek for the true Church founded by Jesus Christ, since there are a variety of groups claiming to be God’s true Church. After all it’s useless to make trouble out of this problem but to endeavor ourselves to be honest before God and seek for the true Church founded by Jesus Christ. We must remember that we all have that freedom to seek for the truth, especially in this present matter of our search for Christ’s true Church. Yes we have that freedom but we must be true and sincere with ourselves in ardently and faithfully searching and exposing the truth. Our freedom must ever be in the service of the truth. “The truth will set you free” (Jn. 8:32), while Jesus has clearly affirmed: “the devil is a liar and the father of lies” (Jn. 8:44). The more then should we strive to search for the living truth. And then let’s avoid the mistakes of the past, those hostilities and violence because of religious biases or differences in opinions, but let all be done in the spirit of love, freedom, respect, and truth. We are all in need of freedom, respect and peace to pursue the ideals of democracy and nation building.
