TRUTH: FAULTY STANDARDS
A standard is that which is set up and established by authority as the criteria or as a source.
Dreams or Visions?
There are those who hold that dreams or visions constitute an objective standard that should be recognized. When asked why they are convinced that they are Christians, some people give such answers as: “Several years ago I awakened in the middle of the night and saw an angel standing in the doorway of my bedroom, and the angel spoke to me and said, “You are a child of God.” However, In Galatians 1:6–9 Paul makes clear that even if an angel were to preach any doctrine other than what Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit had preached, that angel would be anathema. Dreams and visions are not the true objective standard. One cannot please God by relying on mere dreams, visions or “still, small voices in the night” to give God’s answer to religious questions.
Some people believe that formal creeds are the standard. Many religious groups publish books setting out the official positions of the respective group on various religious questions. For some people, these creedal statements constitute the objective authoritative standard. By such people, these creedal statements are regarded as the revelation of God. Galatians 1:6–9 makes it clear that such a view is a false one.
Some people regard their own consciences as the true objective standard. The conscience is that God-given faculty within each individual which urges him to act in harmony with that which he believes to be right. There are no occasions in which it is right for one ever to violate his own conscience. Paul said, “Whatsoever is not of faith is sin.” (Romans 14:23) This means that whatever we cannot do with the conviction that it is acceptable to God, is sinful for us to do. This is the case, even if the action itself is right. Conscience does not tell us what the truth is. One must learn the truth from God’s revelation to man. In the case of Saul of Tarsus, the Bible makes clear that one can live “in all good conscience” and yet be “the chief of sinners” while so doing (Acts 23:1; 1 Timothy 1:15). Conscience is not the true objective standard. Conscience is the God-given conviction (to each person) that he should do what he is convinced is the right thing to do.
