Is There Absolute Truth?
A recent Barna Research Group survey on what Americans believe confirms what this brief scenario illustrates: we are in danger of becoming a nation of relativists. The Barna survey asked, "Is there absolute truth"? Amazingly, 66 percent of American adults responded that they believe that 'there is no such thing as absolute truth; different people can define truth in conflicting ways and still be correct.? The figure rises to 72 percent when it comes to those between the ages of 18 and 25.
