4 thoughts on “Ethical relativism destroyed in a matter of seconds by Ravi Zacharias

  1. When you have no desire to study history you end up with utopian ideas. When I was a child I walk as a child but when I became older the spirit of the living God showed me why there is going to be a judgment. There is a reason that we all need the grace of God to be forgiven for the thoughts in our heads that become actions offensive to God. The story of the prodigal son teaches that the all knowing youth can still be reached, repent and return to the ways that our creator desires us to live. There are still wise people in academia that can discern knowledge for what it truly is. May God continue to bless you with discernment in what you share and write for this blog.

    1. Thank you for your articulate comments. While in school, I tended to have a mental pigeon hole for each different subject. Later on, I read “How Should We Then Live” by Francis Schaeffer. It is an overview of the history of western civilization. He helped me understand that Jesus Christ is the mortar that holds together all areas of knowledge. Since then, History has been fascinating.

      Schaeffer’s book contains a fascinating picture by Rembrandt called, “The Ascension of the Cross.” After Christ was nailed to the cross, the Roman soldiers erected it to the vertical position. Rembrandt’s picture shows the cross midway, looking a bit like the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Among the Roman soldiers, Rembrandt painted a self-portrait dressed in clothes contemporary with the time of Rembrandt. The great artist was saying, “It was my sins that nailed Jesus to the cross.” That picture jumped out of the page at me like flashing neon. I have never viewed art or history the same since.
