Examining truth

WWU professor presents at International Civil Rights Museum

Tim Golden, professor of philosophy, presented two workshops at the International Civil Rights Museum in Greensboro, North Carolina, early this year. Golden’s presentation was included in a program hosted by the North American Division literature ministries group as part of a larger NAD convention sponsored by Liberty Magazine and Message Magazine. 

Golden’s first workshop, titled “Truth: A What or a Who,” focused on the use of allegory as a tool for communicating truth. He emphasized that truth exists both in logic and in being true to what one believes. Truth in integrity, Golden explained, involves a commitment from a person and demands a different kind of communication. 

Golden applied the use of allegory as a method for achieving better moral results as Christians. He explained, referencing John 14:6, that Jesus represents truth in the form of a “who,” teaching through parables and telling stories. “Allegory may be prescribed as a means of communicating this truth within Christianity,” said Golden.

In his second workshop, Golden discussed creating a composite character. “This is a character in a story that is a combination of a number of different people,” Golden explained. “Creative dimension to character writing and character development helps us understand broad moral principles.” He hoped to prompt his audience to think about how important God-given creative capacities are in ministry.
