Myth Three...

Two down and two to go...
Myth Three: Moral Values are relative
A person always appeals to a standard, so the question here is who or what is going to be yours?
The answer is that it is either
1) God
2) Yourself
The problem with appealing to number two is that when a society abandons its transcendent values (that is, looking only to man for absolutes), each individuals moral vision becomes purely personal. Society then becomes merely the sum total of individual preferences (WE THE PEOPLE...) and since none is morally preferable (all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory) anything that can be dared it permitted.
-In other words: man is the measure of all things-
