Are There Moral Absolutes?

“Are there moral absolutes? Can there be any in the polyglot society that is America”?

Yes there is! Why would there be absolutes in Math, in Finance and Biology but not in morals? It is only when morality is concerned that we start to hear the story of the Six Blind Men with the elephant. Why is it not in Math whereby we could allow people to say 1+1= 3 because that is the way they feel or see it. In Math we have wrong and right answers. People claim that we are all blind to the truth in the physical world thus we should then interpret that reality in our own way. But that is not true since we are governed by logic which itself is founded on the laws of Noncontradiction, Excluded Middle and Identity.

In addition, I do not see the relationship between morals and people using many languages nor do I see the relationship between morals and the many translations of the Bible considering that a translated document does not interfere with the tenets of the text. Improper translation may lead to ambiguity but to the best of my knowledge the original versions are still there for anyone to see. Does the national anthem of a country being sung in another language change meaning if it is not badly translated? Or does it make the English speakers to be less patriotic seeing that they are receiving it in another language? So receiving the Bible I English, French or any other language does not dilute the message except if that translation was poorly done.

Hence, what is happening today is a fulfillment of the adage “you will reap what you sow”. The society planted moral relativism and they are reaping godlessness. If the society would say the Pastor has no private life and what he does directly affects his congregation then they will serve as a check valve to his insatiable sexual desire. If they will not consider adultery as a lifestyle but rather as sin, then the adulterer would not be gloating of his or her aberration. That is the moral relativism I am talking about.

Until then, the absence of moral relativism is moral absolute.

"Do you have family here?"

People always ask me each time I meet a new person, “Do you have family here?” Sometimes, when I meet a white person, he or she always...
