Objective vs. Subjective

From Undergraduate Chapel: Fall 2012

Dr. Scott Rae continues his discussion of contemporary issues, focusing on cultural perception of truth. He shows that, in the past, morality was seen as absolute and unchanging, while today it is often confused as a matter of preference. With a quick exercise, Dr. Rae helps his audience understand the difference between personal preference and objective truth. He reminds his audience that ultimately, objective truth will point people to God and the gospel.
