Lamb's Ear

Living and learning, Caleb found some Lamb's Ear growing wild at the farm.

Just thinking about relativity after reading Max Lucado's email on Thursday.

This is what he wrote:," When I was nine years old, I complimented a friend’s model airplane. He said, “I stole it!”  He could tell I was stunned because he asked, “Do you think that was wrong?” When I told him I did, he answered simply, “It may be wrong for you, but it’s not wrong for me. I know the owner. He’s rich…I’m not.”
What do you say to that argument? If the majority opinion determines good and evil, what happens when the majority is wrong? A godly view of the world has something to say to my childhood thief. You may think it’s right. Society may think it’s okay. But the God who made you said, ‘You shall not steal’—and he wasn’t kidding. The hedonist’s world of no moral absolutes works fine on paper and sounds great in a college philosophy course, but in life? Paul described it best in Romans 1:21, “Their foolish minds were filled with darkness.”

Yes, the world may lean toward relativity. You hear, 'It's all relative." But it is not. There are moral absolutes that we must follow in order to live a life of true joy.

Our lord declared that we should be innocent as little children to enter his kingdom. Of course we can't be...but he had a plan. He died on a cross to cover our sins. Now we can be saved without being perfect. Praise God.
