What he is talking about is Relativism.

Relativism is the philosophical position that all points of view are equally valid, and that all truth is left up to the individual to define. This means that all moral positions, all religious systems, all political movements, are truths that are relative to the individual. In other words, there are no right or wrong answers …to anything!

It’s easy to recognize relativism because most of its statements sound intellectual but they are simply ridiculous and self-refuting.

They go something like this:

“You can’t know anything for sure.”
“You shouldn’t judge.”
“Nobody’s right.”
“You can’t know anything.”
“What is true for you is not true for me.”

Now the easiest way to refute statements like these is to simply turn them back around.
You can’t know anything for sure.” -Are you sure of that? -Are you sure you can’t know anything for sure.

“You shouldn’t judge.” -Is that your judgment? -And if you shouldn’t judge, then why are you judging my judgment?

“Nobody’s right.” -Are you right? Are you right that nobody’s right? And if you are right then your wrong about nobody being right.

“You can’t know anything.” -Do you know that? Do you know that you can’t know anything?

“What is true for you is not true for me.” -Well, that’s true. And what is true for me is that you are wrong.

So, the next time you’re confronted with that relativity nonsense just turn it around question their logic and help them to realize that their point of view is just plain silly.

Examining The Inerrancy of Scripture

The Bible is fully truthful in all of its teachings. Why the Bible is truthful, is a very important theological point. As a Christian Apologist, Missionary or Evangelist, the scriptures must be employed and presented as authoritative, verifiable and historical. In some witnessing encounters this may be accomplished through the use of Epistemology, the theory of knowledge, which is the branch of philosophy that studies the nature of knowledge, in particular its foundations, scope, and validity.

This article will support the assertion of my position regarding the ‘Absolute Inerrancy’ of the Bible which includes the following:

  • Scripture is authoritative.
  • The Bible is completely inspired by God.
  • God is the author of biblical writing, hence nothing erroneous entered into the final canon.

Examining John: Explaining the Role of Jesus to the Modern Reader of the Gospel

John’s gospel, more than Matthew, Mark and Luke, emphasizes the Christ’s identity as the Word of God. In this post, I will deal with several common questions you might encounter about the Jesus described in John. In addition using John 1, I will explain the role of Jesus to a modern reader of the Gospel?

  • Why does John call Jesus’ the “Word” in the Prologue?
  • What are the potential sources for John’s depiction of Jesus as the “Word”?
  • How does this depiction of Jesus as the “Word” relate to John’s Gospel as a whole?
