Logstash service fails to start due to Ruby Error

I cannot get logstash to start and keep running. I have verified all my logstash confs work individually with test_and_exit, but when I try to start it as a service I get the following error.

This is running in CentOS. Let me know what additional information you need and thank you for your help.

This is the entire log error?

Please share the configs you are trying to run.

Are you using multiple pipelines with pipelines.yml ?

Also, do you have anything about logstash in /var/log/messages when you are trying to start logstash as a service?

Thank you so much for your time. I appreciate your help. I have ironed out the problem. Someone updated the system and in the process also adjusted the time zone incorrectly. Once I was looking at the correct timeframe I found the messages to adjust a couple permissions and set some environment variables. It is running now.
