An arch truth is a truth that cancels another truth.Â For example, you know you are very hungry and normally would think about preparing a meal.Â However, before you can think about preparing a meal, you learn that the walls of your kitchen are on fire.Â Therefore, you run out of your house.Â In this case:
The truth that “the walls of your kitchen are on fire” is an arch truth
that cancels out the truth that:
You are very hungry.
Now, arch truths exist in the moral realm (the realm of right and wrong).Â For example, the arch truth:
Preserving moral inhibition (an inner force that stops you from doing wrong) overrules truth
cancels out the truth that:
An ignorantly deceived (that they are not responsible for an involuntary act) person is not responsible for an involuntary act.
Here are eight related arch truths:
It is a sin and socially destructive to believe anything that weakens you morally.
It is a sin and socially destructive to believe anything that weakens you morally even if true.
Truth can be evil.
Goodness has priority over truth.
A God-powered person cannot be made to do evil.
A God-powered person cannot be made to do anything against their will.
A God-powered person cannot be brought under the power of anything.
An experience of will-lessness (so-called “absence of the will”) is actually a mental hallucination (an imagination relative to which you have the unconscious delusion that it is a physical reality).
