The Truth terms
and phrases

"The Truth," a small modern Christian religion presumed eternal and original

An itinerant Scottish Christian preacher named William Irvine started a church in Ireland at the end of the 19th century which by the mid-20th had become (in the minds of its adherents) the one true religion.

Church members ejected Irvine in the second decade of his church's existence, and the absence of its founder probably helped facilitate the idea that this is the original church.

One cannot know how much one's granpdarents knew about William Irvine or the real history of the organization. The only certainties are that nobody talked about William Irvine and that everybody believed the church had always been.
