Ephesians 4:14 – Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.
The foundation of relativism is the belief there is no God and therefore no absolutes in any area of life. I recently was engaged with a young man that was struggling with the issue of relative truth. He was truly distressed with a lack of foundation on which to build his life journey. He couldn’t submit to the idea of a God that was absolutely in control and perfect light and truth. I was compelled to pray and intercede on his behalf that the Holy Spirit would soften his heart and enlighten his mind. So, I asked him the only question I could; Do you believe that there are no absolutes at all? His answer? Absolutely!
Psalm 14 speaks to the ethical quicksand of relativism; “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” We must be on our guard to avoid the evil schemes of the wicked heart that denies the Creator. This is a matter of life and death.
The real danger in quicksand is that its deceptive. You don’t know you have stumbled into the death trap until it is too late. All your struggle, and effort only drag you deeper into entrapment. Truth, goodness, and beauty are found in God and the enemy obscures this truth with our desire to be in control.
My prayer is that you will guard your heart and stand firm in your conviction that God is truth, beauty, and goodness. That is the absolute truth; God is!
“Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in your sight O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.”
