ACTS


As most of you who follow this blog know, I work for The Pentecostals of Sydney as the Church Administrator. This is a role I have been in for over 10 years now – hello long service leave!

Moral Relativism


Moral relativism is the idea that morality is relative to each individual person.  There is no ultimate standard or truth, but rather people can make up the rules as they go along.  It sounds good in principle, but it doesn’t actually work in practice.  As a matter of fact, the words “moral” and “relative” are […]
