"Is there such a thing as absolute truth?" In his book, What American’s Believe, Barna reported only 28% of Americans expressed a strong belief in absolute standards. Barna concluded that nearly 3/4 of the American people believe that everything is relative and that man can set his own standards for right and wrong. Several years ago, Josh McDowell in his book, Right From Wrong surveyed Christian teens actively involved in a youth group and asked them: “Is there absolute truth? May people define truth in contradictory ways and still be correct?” 30% of young people involved in the church agreed that there wasn’t any absolute truth.
