TRUTH: SUBJECTIVE or OBJECTIVE?
Either subjectivism or objectivism (one or the other) is the correct approach in the seeking of truth. Every one acts from some basic view-point. In all we do there is some basic view of life which stands behind the decisions that we make, even though one may not always act in harmony with this on a case by case basis, in general one’s view of truth undergirds their life decisions and direction. As regards the seeking of or claiming a knowledge of truth, all men are either objectivistic or subjectivistic in their basic approach.
To say that one operates from the objectivistic point of view is to say that he holds truth is absolute. To say that truth is absolute is to say that it is not dependent on the subjective condition of the knower. It is to say that truth has objective stability and independence outside of the knower. It is to say that when an individual human being comes to the knowledge of a certain truth, this does not change that truth in any way.
In regard to the matter of truth and likewise, Biblical authority, understanding the four propositions below is critical: because only one can be true.
1 Either subjectivism is the correct approach in seeking the truth, or objectivism is the correct approach.
2 Either there is some objective standard, to which all men have obligation, or there is no such objective standard.
3 Either men can know the objective standard (both that is and what it is), or men cannot know the objective standard.
4 Either the Bible is that objective standard or it is not.
