Educator John Dewey (1859-1952), co-author of the Humanist Manifesto I, declared, “There is no God and there is no soul. Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion. With dogma and creed excluded, then immutable truth is also dead and buried. There is no room for fixed, natural law or moral absolutes.” But you can’t logically argue against the existence of absolute truth. To argue against something is to establish that a truth exists. When he says, “There is no room for…moral absolutes” he wants to convince us that there are absolutely no absolutes, an utter nonsense. So with morality: “There’s nothing right, and nothing wrong!” Is that statement right or wrong? But how can we, with finite minds, know something absolutely? Paul explains that the gospel has come by revelation, “…now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith” (Rom 16:25-26).
