Humanism, Relativism, and Pluralism
Relativism is a self defeating philosophy! It is inherently contradictory!
Does relativism apply to natural law? Are there absolute truths in nature?
Relativism completely undermines all morality
If everyone is right, then no one is!
Where does relativism lead? (Gen. 19:9)
We are expected to “rightly divide” (2 Tim. 2:15)
We are expected to “prove what is good” ( Thes. 5:21)
The word of God can be misunderstood and misused (2 Cor. 4:2; Acts 20:30; 2 Pet. 3:16)
