There are no moral absolutes, it’s all relative, and whatever “works for you is fine for you but what works for me is something completely different” may be as close as contemporary culture gets to what it regards as a “truth” that always and everywhere applies.
Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias was asked the question posed in the headline above and it’s one of particular relevance to men and women working on Capitol Hill. Do not miss Zacharias’ opening response to his questioner.
The belief that all truth is relative may be the most tragic misconception in all of human history. As Zacharias points out, it certainly was at the heart of the genocidal ideologies — Soviet and Chinese Marxism, Germany’s Nazism, Italian Fascism — that made the 20th century the bloodiest 100 years ever.
That should tell us something — truth is not found in ideologies, regardless whether they come from either end of the political spectrum.
