Moral Relativism

"In those days there was no king in Israel: every man did that which was right in his own eyes." Judges 21:25

Moral relativism – the notion that there are no moral truths, and thus “morals” are subjective preferences relative to individuals or societies – is widespread in our day, particularly among the younger segments of society. I would venture to say that moral relativism appeals to so many people because it gives them the intellectual justification they need to engage in their sins of choice. This cheap form of moral justification is not without its costs, however.

This cheap form of moral justification is notwithout its costs, however.While moral relativism is an easy way to justify participation in acts that others consider morally objectionable, it also makes it impossible to condemn the acts of others that onefinds morally repugnant. And believe me, every moral relativist has a list of beliefs,attitudes, and behaviors that they think are morally wrong – not just for them, but for everyone!For example, one might subscribe to moral relativism because he wants to justify his gaylifestyle, but he is not content to have his own morality.
