The Progression of Truth

This will be short and sweet and without any clear resolution. It may come across as "fuzzy." But I like what Leonard Sweet says: "Fuzzy is good."

What I would simply would like to do is to pursue the question "Does pure truth have a progressive nature?" Then I would like to look at one passage from the Gospel of John that narrates a critically important teaching of Jesus. It is found in chapter 16; verses 12 & 13:
"I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come."
 I'm going to parse the concepts of each word in the second half of verse 12 (highlighted above). I will use the Greek characters, the phonetic provision, and the lexicon (not to be confused with a short little Irish man) rendering. Then I wonder if you don't reach the same I conclusion that I do.


πνεῦμα      τῆς      ἀληθείας      ὁδηγήσει      ὑμᾶς      εἰς      πάσαν      τῆν      ἀληθείαν
pneuma     tēs       alētheias      hodēgei       humas    eis      pasan      tēn      alētheian

Spirit          the          Truth                Guide           You (pl)  Toward  Entirety (of) the      Truth 
 
What do you conclude? Pure truth looks to have a sole custodial aspect. What does that imply? Is there any containment beyond biblical documentation?

I'm aware of the systematic theological can of worms here, but I have come to the belief that Jesus provides necessary continuity to our search for God and "the Kingdom."

My apologies to those who may be perplexed with this post. Maybe they're be a sequel - and then again...

Hi there! I know this is sort of off-topic however I needed
to ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours require a lot of work?
I'm brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary daily. I'd like to start a
blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
Thankyou!

I hardly comment, but i did a few searching and wound up here
"The Progression of Truth". And I actually do have a few questions
for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or does it look as if like a few of the responses look as if they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your
blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
