It is absolutely astounding that within the Church of Jesus Christ we have to have “in house” discussions about the subject of Truth! Well, pathetic would be more like it because Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the One we Christians claim to follow, literally said in front of eyewitnesses who faithfully recorded His Words – “I Am the Truth” (John 14:6).

And yet, because of “theologians” within the neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church like Tony Jones, spiritual gurus like Brian McLaren and meandering mystics like Rob Bell, here we are being force fed the old philosophy of relativism reimagined and repainted as “postmodernism. Have these fools really not read:

See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ (Colossians 2:8, NASB).

O, but wait a minute, that’s right, they aren’t really sure if that’s true…or not. This is what has happened to your youth pastor (or worse) at your church as these Christian agnostics grow in stature within the Mediocre Christianity of apostatizing evangelicalism.

Along these lines in this work Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason, “adjunct professor in Christian apologetics at Biola University [and host of] his own radio talk show advocating clear-thinking Christianity and defending the Christian worldview,” asks:

Would you die for truth? Of course you would. Multitudes do everyday. Or more precisely, they die because they don’t have truth. People don’t believe their doctor’s warnings. They die for the truth of cancer…

People die for truth all the time. They die as a result of false beliefs about important things. They get it wrong. They’re dead. Truth, then, is often a life and death matter. Whether or not you live or die depends on getting some things right every single day. This is just as applicable to eternal matters as to temporal ones…

Given the gravity of this matter, it seems odd that so many–both outside the church and inside–are convinced there either is no such thing as truth, or that our understandings of truth have to be so radically altered they’re unrecognizable.
