Is this an answer to my post?..I think you locked on to a different thread or something.
[quote=Tantum ergo]HMMMMMMMMM. So there is no such thing as an absolute truth? If there are two contradictory teachings, neither one is “right” or “wrong”, but can only be considered more or less “right” or “wrong” according to any given individual perception?
Sounds like the “thinking” of a moral relativist, an indifferentist, a secular humanist, ideologically speaking.
No worries for such Somebody claims that the sky is blue? But somebody else says it is not? Well, scientific studies show that, though the sky “appears” blue because of the way that color of the spectrum is reflected or refracted (please, I’m no scientist, LOL), it is not really blue. And at night it looks black. Some polluted or foggy places have gray skies, some yellow. And of course, some people are color blind.
Blah, blah, blah. Because one individual doesn’t “see” the color blue. . .or somebody quibbles over what “blue” is (are we using the SCIENTIFIC definition, the literary definition, what SHADE are we using, have we given sufficient consideration to our differently sighted friends, blah blah), we can’t even make a simple statement that “the sky is blue”.
Well, I DO believe in moral absolutes. I believe that some things are morally wrong, always. . .abortion, euthanasia, murder. They aren’t just “wrong only if I think they’re wrong”, they aren’t just wrong depending on CIRCUMSTANCES.
So I care about people making not just “wrong” choices, but “damnable” ones, ones that kill the soul. And I care about people being led astray, given the comforting lies of “it doesn’t really matter how you believe or act” or “a loving God doesn’t care if you sin”, or “nobody will ever go to hell”, or “it’s all the same God whether you call him buddha, allah, christ or mother goddess”.
