ABSOLUTE TRUTH

Absolute truth is real. In fact, Christianity rests on a foundation of
absolute truth, and that foundation is as sturdy as a rock. (See 1 Kings
17:24; Psalm 25:5; John 8:44; 2 Corinthians 6:7; Ephesians 4:15; 2 Timothy
2:15; 1 John 3:19.)

Biblical Christians believe that moral absolutes—such as “You shall have no
other gods before me” and “You shall not murder” (Exodus 20:3,13)—are
grounded in the absolutely moral God of Scripture (Matthew 5:48). God stands
against the moral relativist, whose behavior is based on whatever is right in his
own eyes (Deuteronomy 12:8; Judges 17:6; 21:25). The absolutely moral
Creator-God (Isaiah 44:24) has communicated precisely what moral behavior He
expects of us (Exodus 20:1-17), so we, His creatures, are responsible to render
obedience (Deuteronomy 11:13,27-28).

This is an important issue because moral relativism leaves no way to
distinguish between truth and error, right and wrong. The road of moral relativity
has no center stripe of absolute truth. Consequently, this highway is littered with
casualties (see Proverbs 5:23).

You can be absolutely sure that absolute truth is real and that
each of us will one day face the absolutely moral God of the universe to give an
account for the way we responded to His absolute truth.
