WORLDVIEW: Relativism (Part 1)

Today, we’re talking about worldviews. Today’s pluralistic society strongly promotes relativism, the idea that no objective standard of right and wrong exists, but whatever is right for you is right for you, and whatever is right for me is right for me. In other words, everybody does “what’s right in his own eyes.”

Sound familiar?

The problem with relativism is that it denies biblical truth about right and wrong. In Psalm 119:105 we’re told God’s Word is a “lamp to our feet and a light to our path,” showing us how to navigate life in a sinful world. How can we possibly avoid the pitfalls of life if we fail to acknowledge an objective standard of right and wrong?

As Lee Strobel said:

You cannot build your life with a consistent worldview that is on the shifting sands of moral relativism.

Relativism is wrong for another reason, too, but we’ll need to discuss that at another time. For more information, go to  Stay bold!
