I can see that in arguing, they’re looking to strengthen their ideas and beliefs about spirituality, not actually see the Truth.
For me, the Truth is so absolutely subjective. Each person finds their own Truth (and, yes, this is me explaining my Truth! LOL ) and I get a reaction whenever someone claims that they have/know THE TRUTH and is applying it to everyone, or more specifically - ME!
So this is where I am at, at this stage of my journey. I suspect that I am still very much influenced by my upbringing - my father was a preacher and he preached what he believed to be THE TRUTH every Sunday. I'd like to think that one day I may feel clear around this subject and then, perhaps I will have no need to react/debate whenever I come across someone propounding The Truth. I can feel that Truth sneaking up on me!
