There are phrases in the scriptures that carry extra meaning in one’s life.  For example, Alma’s simple self description found in Alma 27:18 regarding the joy that was felt when dear friends reunite:

Behold, this is joy which none receiveth save it be the truly penitent and humble seeker of happiness.

I would like to consider myself on the path to becoming a ‘truly penitent and humble seeker of happiness.’ Could it be that the message of Jesus Christ through the restoration of the gospel is to guide us on a path to become such? True penitence would be an accurate and honest recognition of our sins and weaknesses. This type of honest assessment brought the people of King Benjamin to the point where they were receptive to the cleansing power of the Holy Ghost. To me, truly humble means that our thoughts are always selfless. We think and act in a way that separates our wants from our actions.

I also yearn to be a ‘seeker of happiness.’ In the sense that this was used by Alma, they sought the happiness that comes from bringing to others the joy found in the application of the gospel in their lives – namely the spiritual bond with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Another phrase which has deeper meaning to me is the name of this new website: Just and True. The term ‘just’ would mean in accordance with God’s proper standard. Justice is the proper accounting relative the standard given to us by God. True, to me, means genuine, the real thing. Truth is what we should all seek for. That which we seek for should be correct and truthful.

This phrase is found ten times in the scriptures. Here is a glimpse into the use of this term.

First, from Revelations, chapter 15:

2  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

3  And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous areare thy ways, thou King of saints. thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true

Those that overcame the beast sang the song on the Lamb defining the actions of the Lord just and true.

From 1 Nephi, chapter 14, we find that the words originally written by John fall into this category.

20  And the angel said unto me: Behold one of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

21  Behold, he shall see and write the remainder of these things; yea, and also many things which have been.

22  And he shall also write concerning the end of the world.

23  Wherefore, the things which he shall write are just and true; and behold they are written in the book which thou beheld proceeding out of the mouth of the Jew; and at the time they proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, or, at the time the book proceeded out of the mouth of the Jew, the things which were written were plain and pure, and most precious and easy to the understanding of all men.

Scripture can be held to the standard of being just and true. The words of John originally fit into this characterization.

The words of men influenced by the power of the Holy Ghost also fit the model.

34  Ammon said unto him: I am a man; and man in the beginning was created after the image of God, and I am called by his Holy Spirit to teach these things unto this people, that they may be brought to a knowledge of that which is just and true;

I take these scriptures to mean that the God’s message to us must be just or correct and true or accurate.

For this reason, I acquired the name for this website, www.justandtrue.com. It is my fond hope that we can all seek and portray the correct and accurate statement of the purpose of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
