The State of Moral Relativism in 2016

moral-relativismToday we see the consequences of a generation’s belief in moral relativism. Where what’s true for you and what’s true for me are two different things. Utter nonsense.

John 16:7 “But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you. 8 When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me; 10 in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer; 11 and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned. 12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth.

Never before in my adult life have I witnessed so many people attempting to excuse away truth and instead making it on an equal footing to gossip.

Confession: I used to watch FOX news during the news hour in an attempt to learn what was going on in the world. Well, until recently frustration with moral relativism prompted me to write to Bret Baier as feedback saying.

I think Fox News has lost its market niche. I can’t watch Electoral College maps that are mere speculation, pundits who are no different than CNN, and topics that are NOT news … Fox has lost all credibility in the news hour. You’ve changed and I can’t watch anymore. Wish you’d bring back the real news.

His reply? “We are covering both sides on my show– always have… we spent A LOT of time on the wikileaks story.. it was our lead. I cover the good – the bad and the ugly on all sides..   I don’t understand why you don’t understand that.”

My reply? “Sorry. I didn’t watch tonight … Just fed up. My objection is primarily to the lack of what USED to pass for news …Fair and balanced, yes, for GOSSIP. What I miss is NEWS.”

Yeah, Bret, I don’t understand because I’m a moron. Or maybe I can take a step back and see the difference between truth and gossip. Where have you been, Bret ol’buddy?

John 18:37 “Jesus answered, “You are right in saying I am a king. In fact, for this reason I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone on the side of truth listens to me.”

Moral relativism is rearing its ugly head. After a generation of teaching people that there is no truth, all the little Americans chant in unison those famous words of Pontius Pilate, John 18:38 “What is truth?” followed by some words from Don Henley “Give us dirty laundry, Kick ’em when they’re up, Kick ’em when they’re down

John 18:38b With this Pilate went out again to the Jews and said, “I find no basis for a charge against him. 39 But it is your custom for me to release to you one prisoner at the time of the Passover. Do you want me to release ‘the king of the Jews’?” 40 They shouted back, “No, not him! Give us Barabbas!”

Truth didn’t matter then and it doesn’t matter to WAY too many Americans now. Let me go on record as saying

I will stand by TRUTH wherever it may be found. What about you?
