Moral absolutes - Part 2

Written by Mike Benson.

Observations from the cases in the first part of Moral absolutes:

1. If there are no moral absolutes, then man becomes not the discoverer of truth, but the determiner of truth. (See Prov. 21:2 / Judges 17:6). Contrast this with the revelation of Scripture, “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps” (Jer. 10:23).

2. Moral relativism is patently false. Truth is absolute-fixed (Rom. 2:8 / John 18:37); it is attainable (John 8:32); it is understandable (Eph. 5:17 / II Peter 3:16); it is identifiable (John 17:17; 14:6; 16:13 / I John 4:6); and it is consistent (Titus 1:2).

3. If we have no objective criteria or standard by which to distinguish between right and wrong, then it is impossible to identify certain behavior as “sinful.” Again, contrast this with Paul’s rebuke of governor Felix, “Now as he reasoned about righteousness (i.e., “morality” – Moffit), self-control, and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and answered, ‘GO away for now; when I have a convenient time I will call for you’” (Acts 24:25).

Indeed the words of Isaiah 5:20 need to be heard loud and clear, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.”
