Our postmodern culture has its own dictionary, its own cultural constructs by which they determine what they think constitutes the moral reason, the moral purpose and the moral essence of a human being. However, these constructs are arbitrary based on nothing more than a subjective human opinion (or the collective preferences of their specific community). Since this is the case, how is it that so many of them are morally outraged if not everyone shares their construct? Such outrage at others is really quite absurd if you can't point to an absolute standard by which we ALL OUGHT to be bound.
So, Christian, do not blindly accept societies' groundless definition of right and wrong or their random definition of the moral purpose of a human being. Instead, when you discuss the issues of the day with moral relativists, and they malign you, ask them how they figure their arbitrary, relative moral standard can apply to us all. If they claim it does, then how can they, with a straight face, still call themselves relativists? When they tell others how to live they are really claiming to know God's universal will.
Since we live in a secular society (one where people have freedom of conscience), Why can't we just live together with different convictions and use reason and persuasion to change people's mind? Sadly, that does not seem to be enough. Many people of today think that they can change other people's convictions with the force of government, by the force of re-education or by socially shaming peaceful, hard-working people with pejoratives. If they cannot get others to change their convictions through these means I suppose they think they can at least shut them up and, at least, outwardly force them to submit. Do they really think blacklisting and threatening to force people out of business is part of a society built on liberty of conscience? When did this all happen? I woke up this morning and the country I live in has gone mad.
No doubt hard times are here to stay and we should be prepared to accept it joyfully ... but as John MacArthur said, "persecution has nothing on capitulation."
