This is a post by my friend, Zak, on the consequences of denying truth and a standard of truth. From the article
“If I think I am entitled to anything I want, then I am certainly entitled to my own definition of truth. If I think that I can create definitions at will, then there is no reason I shouldn’t be able to do that.
When you combine that with a society that has given up a belief in any type of ultimate truth, then you have taken away the weapon that can disarm these individual definitions.”
This reality has been on my mind a lot in the past few days. So much of the conflict in our public discourse is caused because, collectively, we have rejected absolute truth.
There is truth and it can be found; however, we have to be willing to seek it in order to find it.
