Bible Reading: Proverbs 23:22-38
In a survey taken by the Barna Group, interviewers were asked if they agreed strongly, agreed somewhat, disagreed somewhat or disagreed strongly with the following statement: There is no such thing as absolute truth. Amazingly, only 28% of the respondents expressed strong belief in “absolute truth,” and more than surprisingly, only 23% of the born-again, evangelical Christians accepted this idea! What a telling revelation. If more than 75% 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 is authentic, that God created the heavens and earth, or that eternal life awaits the believer? That is what the findings appear to mean. If there is not absolute truth, then by definition, nothing can be said to be absolutely true. To the majority, apparently, it’s all relative. Nothing is certain. Might be. Might not be. Who knows for sure? Take your guess and hope for the best!
Is it any wonder then that so many who say they are “Christian” are “here today and gone tomorrow” for God? St. Augustine said, “When regard for the truth has been broken down or even slightly weakened, all things will remain doubtful.”
When we fail to believe that God’s Word is absolute truth, humanism prevails, which results in the damnation of souls!
What to do:
✞ Love truth, which is God’s Word. It makes you free!
