Topic: Truth: Relative or Absolute?
Is truth relative or absolute? From a Christian perspective, it is absolute. But that does not sit well in today’s milieu. People who hold to absolute truth are often decried as dogmatic and bigoted. Rev. Dr. Art Lindsley is the author of some helpful books, including one directly on this topic, True Truth. His bio says that he is “Vice President of Theological Initiatives at the Institute of Faith, Work, and Economics, where he oversees the development of a theology that integrates faith, work, and economics. Most recently, he had served as President and Senior Fellow at the C.S. Lewis Institute since 1987. Prior to that, he was Director of Educational Ministries at the Ligonier Valley Study Center and Staff Specialist with the Coalition for Christian Outreach in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is also co-founder of Reformed Theological Seminary’s Washington, D.C. campus.” Dr. Lindsley joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the issue of truth. www.tifwe.org
