Absolute Truth vs Relativism

1. ABSOLUTE Truth: Whatever is true at one time and at one place is true at all times and all places. What is true for one person is true for all persons. True is true whether we believe it or not.

1 Corinthians 5:1-5 NIV
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife. And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this? For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this. So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

Dr. Robert Jeffress: “I respect your right to believe what you want to believe, to behave as you want to behave but I also love you too much to remain silent about it.”
