"No Absolutes" is of the Devil

It has been said that Dr. Laura, the popular radio host, has received a large volume of hate mail for believing in moral absolutes. She is asked to be more tolerant of other moral views, but the haters won’t be tolerate of her views.

There most certainly are moral absolutes and absolute truth. The world would have you believe otherwise. Yes, there is absolute right and wrong; but the world would suggest there are a myriad of right and wrongs, who can say which is correct? If you belong to this group, try asking yourself why you want to believe in a world of no benchmarks, no datums, a world of chaos. Would you tolerate a person wrecking your house, because he must have a reason for doing what he is doing?

In the world of the “political correctness virus”, we have many saying things like: “we can’t be sure of the true meaning”, or “we are all headed to the same place”, “who’s to say what is right or wrong” or “don’t take a position on anything for you might just find that you are wrong 20 years from now”. Christian orthodoxy has been around for over 2000 years and has not faltered or run-aground. Christian Orthodoxy has stood up to intense scholarly scrutiny and yet remains intact. Now, fitting right into this mess, comes the so-called “The Emergent Church” where the leaders and their followers are that lukewarm mush found in Revelation 3:15-16, openly saying they can not be sure of Biblical Truth. Are you going to bet your eternity on a recent manmade political position or on the word of God, written by God through eyewitnesses (John 21:24)?

Truth, integrity, honor…are these words pas-se these days?

Truth, integrity, honor…are these words pas-se these days? They may be to all of us earthlings, but they are not to God. People lie so often these days, it almost seems normal to do so. School teachers have been caught lying about and altering test results to make their efforts look better; sending the obvious though wrong student reaction: “if they do it, so can we”…and so the students cheat in great numbers. The media lies about and conveniently leave out their undesirable facts within their stories just to suit their political agendas. Honesty anyone?

Teachers, not knowing themselves about US history, teach revisionist untruthful lesson plans to fit a constructed liberal doctrine. Don’t believe me? …check out the new history books. Borne out of “inclusive language”, political correctness has now become censorship of free-speech. “Zero tolerance” in schools only proves to our students that teachers, administrators and adults at large, are unable to think, reason and solve problems. There is no integrity in lumping all action into one set of responses. Lacking the past integrity of a firm handshake, business contracts don’t mean anything today unless reinforced in a courtroom; assuming your insurance company allows you to even go to court in lieu of simply paying-off a frivolous lawsuit; thus adding gasoline to the frivolous lawsuit bonfires started by hoards of un-honorable people. Politicians call each other “honorable” and yet prove themselves to be the most corrupt, dishonest, liars of the bunch!

Friends, we are not in a good position in this country; we must get back to speaking the truth by disavowing liberal “relativism” and accepting that there is indeed an absolute truth. We must demand integrity in our leaders. We must expect honor again, and call it out when it goes missing. Apathy kills!

In the Book of Acts, chapter 5, we can read about Ananias and Sapphira. They sold a piece of property which was perfectly fine to do. They gave a portion to the Church which was perfectly fine to do. So, why did they die that every day? They died because they lied to the Holy Spirit and to the Church. They claimed that the money given to the Church was the money received from the sale of the property; if only they had simply told the truth…how easy that would have been!

God expects His disciples to be truthful. John 8:31-32…So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” It is interesting that if you simply tell the truth, you never have to worry about what you said years earlier. It actually produces freedom and peace in your heart. How right the Biblical text is in Zechariah 8:16…These are the things that you shall do: Speak the truth to one another; render in your gates judgments that are true and make for peace. Certainly, you do not like people lying to you; don’t you long for honestly from others? Then, why don’t you act first? We are one family of earthlings; let truth begin with you. Ephesians 4:25… Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another. Truth, integrity, honor…are words that are NOT pas-se to God.
