082: (Part 2) “Your Truth” is Not a Thing

Mar 21, 2019 | Ethics, Podcast, Theology

Last week, we began talking about the idea that “you” have a “truth” that allows you to see reality, legitimately, in different terms from someone else.

This is a fallacious notion that is ultimately nothing more than relativism in disguise.

Unfortunately, the disguise has made it past the defenses of many well-meaning Christians.

While last week’s episode focused more on the error, this week, we discuss the likely motivations behind this trend and suggest that the Bible itself offers the proper alternative to accomplishing these “good intentions” as I refer to them.

This relativistic error is most noticeable in Christian self-development circles, and I bring a unique perspective to the issue because I do, indeed, highly value personal development.

I think there is a biblically consistent philosophy of self-improvement, and it’s found in our union with Christ.
