The impression I get is that in this forum, relativism is not a well-regarded philosophical position, because one ramification is the rejection of Christianity’s claim to the one true absolute moral truth and demands such claim to be supported rather than just asserted.
O.K., let’s put our thinking caps on.
Relativism has its merits within certain contexts. God’s truth is not one of those contexts. God did not give us the ten suggestions, but rather the ten commandments. Those commandments are not going to go away and be replaced by other commandments relative to other times and places and cultures. Jesus gave us the one great commandment to love God and each other. That commandment is not relative to time and place and culture. So on and so forth.
If you want to pursue this matter further, I could recommend the thread on Cultural Relativism. The discussion there has stalled recently because AnAtheist appears to be busy or on vacation.
When he returns, I think there will be some interesting fireworks.
I lack belief in gods in general and the Christian religion in particular, so everything that flows from such a presupposition is not persuasive to me. I’m aware of the other thread, but I don’t plan to revisit it. Upon reflection, both absolutists and relativists have something right, and something wrong. Given that both sides are firmly entrenched and I’m not a proponent of either, I probably have already said too much.
Regarding the opening post, I’ll side with squirt. If a particular religious belief is more important than the person as such, then there’s nothing else I could add.
