No absolutes. Relativism. Rights- of this and of that. We have many perspectives and terms for it today. In the book of Judges we see the words in the title. No absolutes, no true measure of right and wrong, except your own personal one. Politicians take the concept to a new level, and what is right and wrong is changed according to our own absolutes.
Two idols have been chosen by media, special interest groups, and that is 'right in their own eyes'. And most of the rest. Your silence, and then participation, confirms that it is 'right' in your eyes as well. What follows will be that others can not even be seen at the ballot box, no other option. A new 'right'.
As we move on and study Kings and Chronicles, and the prophets, we read time and again how that this leader did that which was evil, and the whole nation was affected. Or, this one did right, but, did not tear down idolatry totally, or even worshipped them. Again, the whole nation was affected. And a few times, one did right, and his heart was to tear down all the idols, and turn back to God without the idolatry, and the whole nation was affected.
In a lot of eyes now, a little idolatry is "right in their own eyes". They both mention Jesus Christ, though plainly and obviously that belief is not guided by the inspired word of God, our scripture, the Holy Bible. All of the scriptures witness as to who He is, will not be accepted, by either. That is right in their own eyes, and most within christendom as well.
For almost two thousand years, since His resurrection, and the witness of those who saw Him, and were taught of Him personally, the 'canon' has been what is contained in the Holy Bible. The 'tainted', and the 'uninspired', have been rejected of christians, because of what those versions taught, regarding Jesus Christ.
Little by little, almost unnoticeable to most, that has been changing. Of no surprise this view of 'relativism', and no absolutes, has taken foothold as well. What is 'right' in the eyes of many now within christendom, is evolution, (theistic we add now), at least some do. The guidance of the New Testament is only partly accepted now. Not only of our leaders in secular society, but within the church as well.
If one wants to use what the whole of scripture teaches, and wants others to as well, that is now considered 'negative', a person who just wants to be, what are some of the new terms, a 'bible-thumper', one who just wants to hit people over the head with the bible? And those are the nicer worded terms.
Jesus Christ said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." Is this an absolute? In our nation, and in the world? What is "right in their own eyes"? There are so many views of what is 'right' today, that I for one can not even begin to list them all. I think I will just believe, confess, abide, and remain, in JESUS CHRIST. And all that the Holy Scripture says. It is He who will be judging all, and every single one will account to Him. Even those who 'did what was right in their own eyes".
