Sermon Illustrations

Josh McDowell says, “[Absolute truth is] that which is right for everyone, at all times and at all places.”

My wife and I are big fans of steak. She swears A-1 barbeque sauce is the only sauce worth mentioning. I prefer a sweet honey sauce. If I said, “Honey barbeque sauce is better than A-1,” is that true? Yes. If she said, “No, A-1 is better than honey,” is that true? Well, yes. You see, the truth is relative. Our preferences make the statements true. However, there are some issues which do not afford personal preference. These are the truths Josh McDowell is talking about.
