When a person comes down with a cold or illness, the presenting issues have specific symptoms that will lead a medical practitioner to form a hypothesis as to what the type of cold or condition the patient has contracted. Certain symptoms indicted certain conditions that can be confirmed by analytic testing. For example, if you have high blood pressure, muscle cramps, sugar craving, constipation, increase in insulin, muscle weakness, and abnormal heat beat this can be a condition caused by low blood potassium. If you get your potassium levels back up to a normal most if not all of those symptoms will go away. Physical symptoms reveal potential illnesses that can lead to a diagnosis and treatment of a disease. This is the same for symptoms involving psychological and emotional disorders, relational issues, and even issues involving mechanical devices such as household appliances and automobiles. A good repair person in what ever field you choose can tell what is wrong with any of these situations by isolating the presenting symptoms and finding a way of dealing with them.

Are there also symptoms of deficiency in the spiritual world, especially in the area of discovering and learning the truth? Do you balk at listening to someone present an idea that goes against something you already believe to be true? Do you find ways of avoiding looking at issues in the spiritual realm that make you uncomfortable? Do you feel threatened by provocative ideas and concepts that take you out of your spiritual comfort zone? These are symptoms of unresolved and incomplete levels of learning things that would lead you away from where you are to a place where you just don't want to go - to a truth that is totally different from what you know.

Proof of Truth is proof of Life Eternal. If you want THAT life then you will allow for a new form of truth tthat will change your mind and heart, whence comes peace.
