Truth Matters

“The problem with postmoderns is that they have made peace with a poisonous view of truth, an untrue view of truth. It is one kind of problem to believe an untruth, to take as fact something that in reality is a falsehood, yet still believe that truth exists and can be known…. However, it is another kind of problem to believe that truth itself is merely a matter of personal belief and social custom, so that the truth about Jesus depends on who you take him to be; in this case, no amount of evidence or argument about particular matters of fact will change one’s belief.”

–Doug Groothuis, Truth Decay, 24.

    Have you read Brian McClaren’s A New Kind of Christian? I have heard a lot about it, both good and bad.

    No, I haven’t read it. Honestly, if I ever read it, it will probably not be for a while. My current reading list is two shelves long!–>
