We live in a day and age where what men’s opinions are concerning religious matters are what becomes truth for that individual or group for example, if I think it’s ok with God that I rape, steal, plummage, murder, personally I may believe that’s ok, or even mandated by God. But now the question is this: is that really true? Or is that a truth I am making up?
If you have no absolute standard, then the answer is “yes, anything goes,” because if it’s all relative, then truth is up to the individual. But that’s really not living in reality, because in reality, if my personal belief–my personal truth–doesn’t line up with, or coincide with, God’s revealed truth in the Bible, then I’m really not living the Truth. I’m self-deceived and living a lie. What matters is not my opinion, but what does God say truth is?
That’s living in reality.
