Philosophical Uncertainty

How do we know what to believe? So many stand uncommitted to anything but apathy or uncertainty. What is controlling you? I have come face to face with Jesus, and he made an astounding claim: I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me. I struggled with the possibility that he was who he claimed to be, or he was a liar, fraud and charlatan. Buddha, near the end of his life, said he was still searching for the truth. Jesus said he was the embodiment of all truth and that all truth is centered in him. What does it mean to be free? What did Christ mean when he said that the truth would set us free? I am certain that this stallion is going its own way, and that I am holding on for dear life. I think that freedom lies in the peace of abandonment. Doubt is essential to establishing certainty. I am certain of my freedom, but I am not certain how to share it.
