If we reject truth, why should we be surprised at the moral turbulence that follows? As C.S. Lewis said, “We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” –Francis J. Beckwith, Gregory Koukl, Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air
If there is no truth, nothing has transcendent value, including human beings. The death of morality reduces people to the status of mere creatures. When persons are viewed as things, they begin to be treated as things.
–Francis J. Beckwith, Gregory Koukl, Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air
