If you look at night and look at day,
you see that they are two sides
of the spectrum. Night and day are often
included in analogies giving
two extremes, often symbolizing evil and
good. For example, a robber
comes during the dark hours (night) and
takes goods. If he came during
the day, he'd most likely be caught.
What if you took night and day and put
them together? Answer? They'd
be like a polarized bar magnet - South
on one side, North on the other.
They would be like thin oil floating totally
on top of thick corn syrup,
not mixing at all. You can't combine night
and day to get sunset --
you'd only be left with night and day,
Many relativists believe that, in a sense,
you can combine 'absolutes'
like 'yes' and 'no', 'true' and 'false',
'moral' and 'immoral,' into a
middle-ground such as 'if it's all right
for you, it's yes/true/moral.'
Imagine what society would be like if everyone
followed God's Word.
Peace comes with obedience to His Word
and a great deal of joy as well.
Depression would decrease enormously,
gaps in families would cease to
exist. God's Original Garden of Eden concept
would be essentially
But we know we are sinners. No man is without
sin, and if we say that
we are without sin, we make God out to
be a liar, and the Truth is not
in us. Many believe that sin is also relative.
In 1 John 3:4, it
clearly states, 'sin is the transgression
of the law.' More simply, sin
is disobedience and rebellion to God.
People even now make up their own religions
to satisfy their own
itching ears. They are swayed to and fro
by other doctrines, and we are
commanded to grow up as Christians! When
we learn by the milk of the
Word and then proceed and get some meat
from the Word, we will be
stronger in our walk with Christ.
Without firm grounding, relativistic thought
can ruin our lives. Some
believe that abortion is ok if you THINK
it's ok. It's murder of babies
and is abomination to God. In Proverbs,
one of the seven abominations
to God mentioned is the shedding of innocent
blood. Abortion is a prime
example of brutal and premeditated murder.
No matter what the case, put two solid
blocks together, and you can't
intercombine them without changing states.
Same deal with Truth. There
is Truth and the opposite of Truth - Falsehood.
There is Moral and
there is Immoral. There is God's Plan
versus destruction. Which one
will you choose? Night...or Day?
