Nobody is an island or master of truth.
We are all at best apprentices and therefore can eventually qualify to be custodians of truth for our generation and those to come (if we are faithful).
Truth is there any time, every time, all the time; it doesn’t change. There is no human being alive who does not have any need to change further. The necessity of change makes man a subjective authority.
The truth itself is the objective authority in any matter because human experience sometimes has a way of coloring truth.
And that is the simple reason why no man (and his experiences) should be above authority…especially the authority of truth. For as long as he lives, his comprehension of truth is to the extent of his applications; and it takes a whole life time to dutifully apply truth acquired over time.
If there is no more truth for him to apply, he should at that very moment commence his career in eternity.
“Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.”
