Relativism and Truth in General

 - Joe

O Tempora! O Mores!
O the times! O the customs!

Reading over some of our past comments, I am surprised at those who subscribe to a relativist ideology, in other words, what you/they believe to be the truth that truth does not exist. While I disagree heartily with you/them, You'll/they'll probably want an explanation, which is en route if you simply remember that "Quodquod recipitur in modo recipientis recipitur". That is, "Whatever is received is received according to the mind of the receiver".

Truth, according to Plato, is "That which is". Calling a cell phone a rock is not truthful. Most people understand this. Relativists (who are absolutely certain that there is no certainty) usually confine to morality what they believe is the truth that truth is nonexistent. But even this is absurd. Murder is not just wrong for "some" people. It is always wrong, all the time. Rape is not wrong to "some" people, either. It is wrong for everyone, all the time. Most "professional" relativists amend their ideology even further, saying that we need to accept some basic moral TRUTHS (oops!). To paraphrase their beliefs (there are absolutely no absolutes) : Truth does not exist, unless it's science or morality we approve, which IS true! Anybody besides me starting to see through this?

Blaise Pascal, in his famous work Pensées wrote that "Truth is so obscure in these times, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it". All of us Christians here in the blessed BH love the truth, which is Jesus. I feel sorry for you who don't and actually I'm kind of curious how you manage to get through your day.

Also a big HOWWWWWWDYYYYYY! to our new commenters, S4nta in particular.
