Anchored to Truth

The uncertain cultural waters in which we now find ourselves have been a long time in the making. The forces that we witness tearing at the moral fiber of our nation, it institutions, communities, Churches, and families have been quietly building for some time now. Maybe not quite so concerning as the idea of relative truth.
Thirty years ago Americans were asked, “Do you agree strongly, agree somewhat, disagree somewhat, or disagree strongly with the following statement: There is no such thing as absolute truth; different people can define truth in conflicting ways and still be correct.” Only 28% of the respondents expressed strong belief in “absolute truth,” and more surprisingly, only 23 percent of born-again or evangelical Christians accepted this idea!
It was a telling revelation! If more than 75 percent of the followers of Christ say nothing can  be known for certain, does this indicate, as it seems, that they are not convinced that Jesus existed, that He is who He claimed to be, that His Word in authentic, that God created the heavens and earth, or that eternal life awaits the believer? That’s what the findings appear to mean. If there is no absolute truth, then by definition nothing can be said to be absolutely true.
Today we are witnesses of a wide section of culture that believes it’s all relative. Nothing is certain. Might be. Might not be. Who knows for sure? Take your guess and hope for the best, and that foundation is one of the major contributors to the increasing cultural unrest we witness in the world and Church today.
