We do not create truth, we discover it

“The Bible tells me so,” is something Christians need to embrace, not shy away from. Why? Because you can’t make a meaningful moral argument for anything unless that argument is grounded on GOD.

Here are three quotes that sum up the absurdities inherent to a society debating morality without reference to God.

“You and I can discover truth, but we cannot create it. What’s true is true and what’s not is not – for all of us, all the time. Our culture views truth as something inside us, subject to revision according to our growth and enlightenment. Scripture views truth as something outside us, which we can believe or not but can never sway.”

Randy Alcorn

“Without absolutes revealed from without by God Himself, we are left rudderless in a sea of conflicting ideas about matters, justice and right and wrong, issuing from a multitude of self-opinionated thinkers.”

John Owen

“If there is no absolute moral standard, then one cannot say in a final sense that anything is right or wrong. By absolute we mean that which always applies, that which provides a final or ultimate standard. There must be an absolute if there are to be morals, and there must be an absolute if there are to be real values. If there is no absolute beyond man’s ideas, then there is no final appeal to judge between individuals and groups whose moral judgments conflict. We are merely left with conflicting opinions.”

Francis Schaeffer
