Is There Absolute Truth?

Can you imagine suggesting that a woman is not a woman, but only worthy of the title “person”?

Parents in Vermont are in an uproar as schools change lingo in their sex education. A woman is to be called “a person who bears seed” and a man is to be called “a person who carries sperm”.

In the name of supposed equality, linguistic theft has never been so real.

A modern world can start fudging truth but a post modern world has a difficult time acknowledging that there is absolute truth. And yet, any logical, well-reasoning person will see that those who want others to believe that truth is relative, are in fact carrying their own version of absolute truth.

“There is no absolute truth” is of necessity an absolute statement of “truth”.

Those who cry tolerance most of all are often the most intolerant of all who still choose to place faith in something greater than feeling or emotion—the God of this universe Who created all things, is the Founder of love, and Who will never call evil good because that is contrary to His nature.

How could we not look to Someone bigger than ourselves? Human emotions are scary and can go absolutely wacko.

It was emotion who took my ex to a fifteen year old girl.

It was emotion who took a shooter to Nashville, leaving devastated families grieving thier children.

Every affair begins with emotion. Someone feels discouragement in a marriage, feels attracted to someone else, and bam—one more divorce hits our post modern world where humanism is on the rise, even in the church.

Society begins to disintegrate when we live as if fickle feelings are greater than factual truths.

It should be no surprise that emotional women are now initiating 70% of divorces. Satan lies again as he did in the garden when he showed Eve delicious fruit and asked her if God really said no about something that good.

Just as Satan’s reasoning didn’t change God’s word to Eve, so human reasoning will never, ever dismantle the spoken Word of God.

I love that I can run to the Word of God when my feelings are going nuts.

I love that I have something solid to tell my children, “This feels wrong because God says it’s wrong.”

I love that I can rest my heart on the promises of God when the world is full of people who would rather indulge in passion.

Those who can’t place their feet firmly on the Word of God will very soon begin calling evil, good. Gen Z has a difficult time realizing that the homosexual relationships they see aren’t sweet, they are sinful.

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20, ESV)

Never in all history did God intend children to have two mothers or two fathers. Never was man intended to have sex with man, or woman with woman. Man was created to be with woman, and nothing our society says will ever change the goodness of creation in God’s design.

Those who speak against it are not always “homophobic”; sometimes, they are the most loving people around.

The very nature of love cannot tolerate all things. If it could, there would be no right or wrong, no need to incriminate anyone for anything. Murder and rape would be okay. Because once you say there is no absolute truth, you have no basis for saying anything is wrong. Who are you to decide what is right and wrong if you cannot acknowledge a God who does the same?

The very nature of God requires there to be right and wrong, light and darkness, good and evil. A good God cannot call evil things good, or pretend it doesn’t matter. He cares about Nashville. He cares about victims of abuse. He cares about a spouse abandoned or cheated on.

God will never pretend He doesn’t care. He will always hold a standard of love that reaches to the broken and makes them whole again. So again I ask, who are we to decide what God can call good and what He can call evil? Dare we try to receive His love without also accepting His word?

There’s a dignity, a love, a grace given to those who love others too much to watch them destroy themselves.

I say LOVE OTHERS for a reason. So-called Christians, please stop with the mockery and laughter. No drag queen will ever be drawn to your ridicule, but they may be drawn to your righteousness and love.

Society begins to disintegrate when family structure dismantles itself for unbridled lust. Lust gone wild will never replace love grown in commitment.

“In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.” (Judges 21:25, ESV)

“When the Spirit of Truth comes, He will guide you into all truth, for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak, and He will declare to you the things that are to come.” (John 16:13, ESV)

“Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breast plate of righteousness in place.” (Ephesians 6:14, ESV)
