Popular psychologists, politicians, activists and academics preach that absolutes do not exist. I believe there’s one absolute we might all agree on.
Society is divided on every topic from ecology to abortion. If there is one thing most people absolutely agree upon, it is that there is no such thing as absolute truth. The major stumbling block about absolutes is the requirement that for anything to be absolutely right the opposite must be absolutely wrong.
Most voices today refuse to call anything absolutely wrong unless it is the belief in absolutes.
The issue of absolutes resolves to this: The God of the Bible absolutely exists or He absolutely does not. If the God of the Bible exists then so do absolutes. A whole bunch of them.
Acknowledging God accepts standards, definitions, restrictions, and judgment. Belief in the God of the Bible confesses Jesus Christ and our inability to save ourselves.
One Thing Everyone Agrees On
Do you believe that anything is absolutely true or right in all instances and circumstances without exception? What would that one thing be?
“Is there one thing everyone in the United States could agree on?”
I’ve asked that question for years. So far, no one has come up with anything that qualifies – which explains our present circumstance.
I believe in as many absolutes as God’s Word teaches. For this Simplicity Note, I’m going to suggest just one that may be agreeable to everyone regardless of creed or philosophy.
You don’t know what you don’t know.
If you knew what you didn’t know, you’d know it.
What an amazing equalizer. I don’t know what I don’t know and neither do you. Wisdom, I believe, isn’t simply how much we know, but the progressive realization of how much we don’t.
