CRISIS OF VALUES « The Burning Platform

FBD, because without an arbiter of truth, and I accept God’s Word as truth, then there is no foundation on which to base any dialogue, and no point in further discussion. That doesn’t mean I won’t point out when someone is wrong.

One can argue semantics until the end of the world, and never arrive at any mutual understanding. By the same token, one can lean unto their own understanding, but they will usually be wrong. (Proverbs 3:5 ESV).

IOW, and not to belabor the point, how else does one distinguish between right and wrong, without a frame of reference by which to do so? And if one chooses a frame of reference, how does one know it to be right? The infallible and unerring Word of God is the answer to both of these questions. One may choose other sources for truth, but in the end, it is God’s Word that is above all.

If you deny this self-evident truth, then I will ask you, what is truth?

And to tie this in with the OP, the reason we have a crisis of values, is because we have rejected the truth of God’s Word, and rejected his righteousness, loving money and self more than truth. There will be a day of reckoning, and it will be God’s reckoning, not man’s. I will lean unto God’s understanding and trust him, and point out the flaw in Christopher’s dismissal of religious arguments, that he is rejecting God, and therefore rejecting truth to his own detriment.

Since you asked.
