Six Truths vs Six Lies

"For evil to succeed, all it needs is for good men to do nothing." – Sir Edmund Burke

Increasingly our culture is being pushed to accept all ideas and lifestyles as valid. However, absolute truth is an inconvenient hurdle for “the new moral code” of self-fulfilment.

New international research shows the heart of the problem. In their book, ‘Good Faith’  David Kinnaman & Gabe Lyons have discovered six foundational statements of the new moral code. These are six “lies” leading to dissatisfaction and dead-ends, as opposed to God’s plan which leads to flourishing for us as individuals and for our whole society.

Lie #1:
To find yourself, look within yourself

To find yourself, look to the Truth found in Jesus

Lie #2:
People should not criticise someone else’s life choices

Loving others does not always mean staying silent

Lie #3:
To be fulfilled in life, pursue the things you desire most

Joy isn’t found in pursuing our own desires but in giving of ourselves to bless others

Lie #4:
Enjoying yourself is the highest goal in life

The highest goal in life is giving glory to God

Lie #5:
You can believe what you want as long as it doesn’t affect society

God gives you freedom to believe what you want but it does affect society

Lie #6:
Any kind of sexual expression between two consenting adults is fine

God designed boundaries for sex and sexuality in order for humans to flourish
