Are there absolute truths?

                When one considers the ideas and philosophies and the demand for tolerance these days, the word absolute becomes a four letter word. We come across these people who allow us to cherry pick ideologies, or say that ideologies are true for us but not for them. There is a spectrum of these claims. All of this, however, boils down to one question. Are there absolute truths in this world? If there are, it provides serious implications for the exclusivity of the claims of Christ. What I would like to do here is explore the possible scenarios of truth claims and see which one makes the most sense.
                In the best sense, I can see two scenarios in which absolute truths need be examined. Either they do exist or they do not. Now if we examine the claim that absolute claims do not exist, we run into our original problem? Do we take that as an absolute claim? Do we say that it is true for you or not for me? It is self-defeating to claim that absolute truths do not exist. So then we are left with the alternative, absolute truths do exist. So now, what do we do with that information? Well I would suggest that we apply it to our ideologies and world views, and I would like to take a little bit to examine the claims in Christianity and how it is exclusive in its claim to human salvation.

                “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me” (John 14:6) “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). These two verses, and many others like it, demonstrate the exclusive claims of Christianity as the only game in town when it comes to our salvation and communion with God. Now I could go on to talk about the validity of Christianity, but that would take much more time that I have planned for this particular post, and I have others that hope to answer additional questions that you may have. May God bless you and have a good rest of your day.
