Today, in America, many believe that there are no “moral absolutes.” Many believe in “moral relativism.” How many times have we heard statements like these: “What’s right for you may not be right for me,” or “If it feels good do it,” or “Anything goes,” and “Nothing is right or wrong, there are just different opinions?” All of this is the result of the feeling that there is no absolute truth. “You are entitled to your truth and I am entitled to mine,” is the view held by many.
A recent poll found that 67% of Americans do not believe in moral absolutes. Among “Baby Boomers,” the percentage was even higher at 78%. Even 62% of “professing Christians” said that there was no absolute standard of right and wrong. Is it any wonder that America is in such a sad state morally?!
My friends, there is an absolute standard of truth and we can know that truth. Jesus said, “Sanctify them in the truth: thy word is truth” (Jn. 17:17). Jesus says that God’s word is truth. Thus, what God says is right – IS RIGHT! Our Lord also declared, “If ye abide in my word, then are ye truly my disciples; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (Jn. 8:31-32). One can know absolute truth. Remember, “O Jehovah, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps” (Jer. 10:23). God’s word is our moral absolute!
Think About It!
Have An Awesome Day!
