What if they say… Who gets to say what is right and wrong?
I don’t believe there is “absolute truth”.
Note: To say there is no absolute truth is a contradiction because they are saying, “The absolute truth is: there is no absolute truth.
You can say (in your own words):
We seek purpose and meaning - I find it fascinating that mankind has always wrestled with the purpose and meaning of life. A quest for what’s right and what’s wrong.
- Where does this quest for fulfillment and morality come from?
- Could it come from Someone greater than ourselves?
We desire justice – If there isn’t a God and therefore no “truth”, we are free to do whatever we want.
- It’s everyman for himself. We become a “whatever” world without guidelines. And whoever has the most power or influence rules!
- Adolf Hitler killing off the Jews is a good example.
- But that’s not what we want deep in our heart. We want things to be fair; we want justice.
Rebellious by nature – And it seems most people resist authority and accountability. How many of us look out for the cop car while driving!
- But, if there is a GOD, doesn’t He have a right to establish right and wrong?
- It’s our rebelliousness that doesn’t want to believe there is a God to whom we must ultimately answer. Instead, we really want to be our own “god”.
[Sharing the illustration of how PROPHECY validates the BIBLE could be helpful at this point.]
“JUST FOR THE SAKE OF CONVERSATION, LET’S SAY the Bible reveals foundational truth to us.”
- Then go back to sharing the Gospel
- Or state, “The main truth and message of the Bible is ‘how a person can have eternal life’.” Then ask, “May I share with you what I discovered it says about this?”
