Several years ago, a Charisma Magazine article warned that “believers reject moral absolutes for what feels right.” They are falling prey to the relativism of the world’s system.
A 2016 study by George Barna said 22 percent of adults believe in moral absolutes; and among those who claim to be born again, only 32 percent.
How far God’s people have come from the time of martyr John Huss (1370-1415)! He said, “Seek the truth. Listen to the truth. Teach the truth. Love the truth. Abide by the truth and defend the truth…Unto death.”
For my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lipsProverbs 8:7
How well do you measure yourself when it comes to standing for absolute truth in this relative age? Have you let the world squeeze you into its mold? Do you fear social backlash for calling evil by its name?
Founding Father Alexander Hamilton has received attribution for saying:
Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.
Be encouraged by Jesus’ high priestly prayer (John 17) when He asked the Father to keep His children in the truth. Know truth by studying His Word of truth – the Bible. Pray that God would illuminate His words for you…and for President Trump as he leads America to be courageous and stand for absolute truth.
