Moral Relativism

Moral Relativism

Moral relativism is not new concept, even though it is now the rule rather than the exception in colleges and universities today. It began when man decided that their own belief systems were greater than Gods. They denied the God given reality and came up with reality they preferred according to their desires. Now everyone has a reality of their own, hence moral relativism. Hey, it is all relative! It is all good! Out with the bad in with the good!

Man began creating their own gods of earthly materials, in their own likeness or those of animals. They felt it was morally acceptable to worship who they chose and as they wanted.

Now we have all faith’s services. There people believe they can reconcile their belief differences. That every belief system can worship together. That they all can be included in one service in spite of their differences or the gods they worship by not considering the differences. It is kind of like mixing all the wrong ingredients together and calling the results a cake!

They have made a religion of free choice with no absolutes, and hold religious activities. They believe they have resolved their obvious differences by ignoring them or accepting them.

This reminds me of a philosophy of the 70’s, “I’m okay and you’re okay.” This is not okay with God. They are not worshiping him alone. With this as their philosophical premise they can worship different gods without any contention.

Each is allowed to express their beliefs at the same podium, in the same forum and disagree, with one exception, you can't be a Christian. They say to be Christian's are too narrow minded. There has to be more than one god because that would exclude all of them their religions.

So not only do we have all the wrong ingredients mixed together but the main ingredient is intentionally left out, the BAM! And they still want to call the result a cake. Let me make it plain, they want to call their services Church but they leave out Christ and the Church!

That is an oxymoron for none of them believe the same. Each is narrow in their beliefs for they have to leave out so much of what God has to say in his word the Bible. And each of them condemns the other just by the fact they don't truly agree with each other. They just agree to not agree, and they agree to not discuss their disagreements, so they can combine their religious services to include as many dissimilar people as they possibly can. Are their combined forces a frontal attack or defense against the Church of Jesus Christ?

To be honest, I don't know how they can hold services together, and not say anything about their differences, especially without questioning anything including their motives. Why have they decided to suddenly hold services together? That would bother’s me.

Well, the Bible says that God haters would rather believe a lie than the truth. And that God even sent them a strong delusion so they would believe a lie, much like He hardened Pharaoh’s already hard heart. See how important it is to read not only study Bible prophecy but the entire Bible?

I attended an outdoor gospel festival where an all faiths singing group was allowed to perform. It irritated me when someone announced, "Now we are going to sing a song for the Christians." I thought, “What’s up with that?” As if they had the right spirit to do so that would be pleasing to our jealous God! You must be born again! The one who said don’t worship other gods before me!” Was God second, third, fourth on their list to worship? And I thought, “Oh, was God an after thought? Are they going to attempt to sing a song for each religion represented there?”

They did not announce any others. Why did they single out the Christian faith? A couple of their representatives then came and laid on the grass in front of us a lady friend and I. Boy, even Sodom was represented. What faith did they represent? There faith in Satan?

As I sat elsewhere listening to a Praise and Worship CD with my headphones on, a few of the all faith’s people came nearby as if drawn, and wondered what spirit they came in. And I thanked the LORD that he said if I be lifted up I will draw all men, women, and children unto me. The Bible says to be strong and to be bold for the LORD our God is with thee.

We used to sing we are to go into the enemy’s camp and take back what he stole. I’m about redeeming stolen souls the ones that won’t go, or can’t go into the right buildings. And the LORD does add daily unto the church, such as should be saved.

They each exclude or nullify the others belief systems by their doctrines. But that is OK with them as long as no one identifies the differences as being problematic. So called Christians are allowed to speak if the word of God expressed does not condemn or convict them and they are also accepting of the differences. There are lots of ways to misinterpret the Bible intentionally.

The word of God is sharper than any two edged sword and it hurts when spoken, written or even thought about. They can not stand in its presence. They claim to be broadminded but actually they are so narrow minded they wont included Christian thoughts in any form or fashion for this reason.

The form of religion they practice is called moral relativism, the belief that your religion is true and my religion is true even though they are in opposition to each other. They really don’t believe that anything is true or absolute truth.

They are so narrow minded that they feel they must remove any symbols of Christianity that have existed since the foundation of this nation and they deny that Christianity had any influence in the foundation or development of this country. This statement alone should convince you just how confused they are!

The Declaration of Independence was written by people of Christian faith who represented the original 13 states. These people were dissenters from the current government and wanted to form one of their own. The Declaration of Independence states that the 13 original states unanimously agreed that they were all created by a Creator, God. You only have to read the first page to find this out.

Why doesn't anyone quote from it as their proof text that America was founded as a Christian nation breaking free from a Nation (England) that had no separation of Church and state like Islam. There still is no separation of Church and state in England today! Why do they claim that America has no separation of Church and state? They lie and the truth is not in them. They are trying to foster a religion or a belief ignoring the facts. They have many supporters including the media who support their lies.

The institution of slavery was taught as being supported by Bible verses. Today, the institution of employment is taught as being supported by the same Bible verses in Church. It is taught we are to serve our employers like our masters I’ve heard preached. And then and even now, people seek comfort in Christian beliefs found in the Bible. Even those who were opposed to slavery sought comfort and answers in the Bible.

The Declaration of Independence states that men and women were created equal, and we were and continue to be. The Bible says that there is no Jew or Greek, man or woman, poor or rich, master or slave, or pigmentation. We are all equal in the sight of God.

However there are distinct differences. Paul asked the question, do we all speak in tongues, prophecy, heal? Are we all Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers? Are we all Gods children?

There is a difference in Gods eyes between his children and the children of the Devil. In the book of John, Jesus had a confrontation with some religious leaders, the Pharisees. They accused Jesus, the son of God, God in the flesh, of having a devil. Jesus in turn said they don’t know who he is because their father was the Devil. Who do you think was right? That is an important question and the dividing line between children of God and children of the Devil.

Moral relativists want to exclude Jesus feeling that Jesus has excluded them because he wants to influence them. He wants to change them. He wants to be their LORD and Savior. He wants their only God be in three persons, the Father, the Son Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. He wants to make them born again. He wants them to become his relative.

Presently he is not their relative. Who knows what morals are anyway them or Gods? Does anyone really know what is moral is or has God decided? Does God reveal what moral is in his written word the Bible? Yes. But he does not reveal it to everyone who reads it. Unless he does you won’t get it. Everything of God must be revealed by God, even our salvation.

Jesus told Peter that no man convinced him that Jesus is LORD the son of God, God in the flesh. No man can. Only the father can. It was revealed to him by the God the father. And God the father chose not to reveal this to others. Peter heard others call Jesus everything else but the son of God. People today call Jesus everything else but the son of God.

Not everyone will receive or believe unto salvation, for not all people will enter into Gods pasture, and neither will they enter into everlasting life. But those who know His voice have been chosen in him before the foundation of the earth. That is what all faiths, atheists, agnostics, and other non-Christian religions don’t like.

That is why Christians are called “Too narrow minded.” They want to make it into heaven of their own accord and their own way. What’s God got to do with it? Everything! For God is LOVE, and everyone that loves knows God. If you don’t love Gods written word you don’t love God. You don’t know who He is. He is revealed in his written word the Bible. If you don’t love God you don’t love people. Jesus said all of the law can be summed up in these two commandments, love God and love people and that includes love yourself. That is not being narrow minded for Gods word says we are even to love our enemies.

Have you read how his people behaved in the Old Testament? Some would have stopped David and Bathsheba from committing adultery and murdering her husband before they got married. It was not possible for them to be aware that thousands of years later Jesus would be their descendant! In fact some people still condemn them and others today, having not this information revealed to them. No matter how many times they read and discuss it. They just can’t get it!

They had no way of knowing that Mary’s Joseph would come from King Solomon who was born of this union of David and Bathsheba! They had no way of knowing Joseph’s Mary would come from Nathan who was born of this union of David and Bathsheba! They had no way of knowing that their son Solomon would be chosen of God to build God’s temple on the sight he revealed to David his father.

There is no way we can possibly know all the pieces of Gods plans and how they fit together from our human vantage point. Our clocks run out of time too soon, we die. Boy, are we ever so smart! It is a good thing that God is in control, lives for eternity, and we don’t have the will, understanding, or ability to stop His program.

That is why he keeps many of us young minded, dumbfounded, and having fun. Some people think they have the free will to just do as they choose, and they have the free will do anything they want, and they can’t be convinced otherwise even by Scripture. It takes the Holy Spirits leading to guide them unto all truths.

They are like little children who are placed in a sandbox and allowed playtime. Except they don’t know they have been placed there and some of them are real old. And every once and a while, God tosses in new toys to play and keep them happy.


What is relativism anyway? Is it the act of making relatives? Is it becoming adopted? Is it to influence or disciple others? That would make them followers. And they would be followers of whom the primary relative is Jesus? Now that is divine moral relativism. 

Do they have a different theory of relativity? Obviously!

Jesus was raised in a Ghetto

Jesus was raised in a Ghetto

Yes, Jesus was born in Bethlehem, but as someone I heard preached, "Jesus was born in a barn in a backyard!" Jesus was not born in a home or an Inn. This nugget added fuel to a thought I was developing which is often the case when Preachers listen to other Preachers. What some may not be aware of is that, “Jesus was raised in a Ghetto!”

There was a class structure among Gods people in place long before the birth of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ. The Jewish leaders considered themselves to be the upper class or the elite. They believed they were educated and the outstanding members in society, and they were above everyone else. They refused to speak the language of common people. It was considered profane and vulgar.

There was a middle class of people they considered to be just below them, that were subject to their dictates. They probably were the Samaritans. They would have dealings with them in day to day matters.

However there was also a lower class of people than them, uneducated, who spoke a common language that offended their refined ears. Perhaps the gentiles were included in this class. The upper class with all their education could not understand them. They refused to learn the language and it was not allowed to be spoken among them. They did not want to have any personal dealings with these people. They were the poor and the homeless, the common people. The upper class Jews would employ the middle class people to conduct day to day business with them.

And guess who some of those lower class, common people were? I’ll give you three guesses and the first two don’t count. Nazarene’s, the people of Nazareth! As far as the upper class Jews were concerned, nothing good comes out of Nazareth

No wonder they did not like this young man who showed up. And not only did he show up he corrected them on the finer points of the law! What an insult. This commoner from Nazareth did not attend their institutes of higher learning. This commoner from Nazareth had not placed himself under submission to the teachings of the Pharisees, Sadducees, and the High Priest. Who was this young upstart from the Ghetto? None other than Jesus!

Because Jesus was raised in the Ghetto, Jesus had a Ghetto mentality. And as you know, you can take a man out of the Ghetto, but you can’t take the Ghetto out of a man. Jesus has a heart for Ghetto people and the Ghetto life where people care for one another, and depend on each other just to survive. The Ghetto prepared him to live anywhere, submit to authority, accept what was freely given to him, and he took joy in the simple pleasures of life.

Jesus was raised in the Ghetto because he came for Ghetto people, those who were poor in spirit. He came to give them life, and life more abundantly. Oh how hard it is for the elite and middle class to enter the kingdom of God. But with God all things are possible, even salvation.
Those who are rich don't know they need a Savior and are harder to reach.

They don’t think they need someone to supply all of their needs. They don’t know why they keep striving to meet their own needs and can’t because their needs are spiritual. Those who are rich have a problem with those who are poor.

They ask themselves questions like this: How can the poor be content no matter what their circumstances are? Why don’t the poor get a real job like them and buy nice things like them? And then they won’t offer the poor employment opportunities that would allow the poor to live like the middle and upper class people. And if the poor become thieves they wonder why, and have them arrested and punished.

Jesus came as a thief. He became flesh to be among us but the world was unaware of who he was. The children of God were expecting him though. Some even met him in the barn he was born in, and at Jacobs well where he came to visit them the Samaritan’s.

Jesus lived like a thief. He delivered souls from the devil’s grip, and set them free from their captivity. He gave them a clear conscience of sin by his shed blood that the blood of animal sacrifices could not do.

Jesus will return as a thief.  As a thief in the night to those who do not believe. No one knows the day or the hour of his return. But to those who do believe he will not return at a time they don’t expect him. We are always in a state of expectancy of his return. We will recognize the signs of his return and will be anxiously waiting.

The apostles asked Jesus what will be the signs of his coming. And every once and a while we become over zealous as if he might return any minute! This is yet another of his signs to us the soon coming King of kings and LORD of lords, Jesus. Those who don’t believe fear his return and place guards even today at his empty tomb!

Jesus is coming back for those who have the mind of Christ and King Jesus had a Ghetto mentality. Let this mind be in you that is also in Christ Jesus. It is not we that lives but Christ in us, the hope of glory.

Be mindful that Jesus is coming soon. What is the day, month, year, hour he will return? No one will know until it happens and all eyes will see him. A five minute delay or more on all live broadcasts will not prevent this. He did not need our technology when he spoke all things into existence and created man, woman, beast, and all creepy things upon the earth.

I believe John said it best in the book of the Revelation being convicted as well as submitted. Can you imagine what he went through writing that book? What an experience! Who would argue or question God after that? Christ said he was coming soon and all John could say was, “Even so LORD, come.”


John was too humbled to ask what soon meant. He probably did not understand much of what he wrote anyway nor could he explain it to others of his time.

Balaam's Abuse of Privilege

Balaam's Abuse of Privilege

Balaam, a Prophet none the less took advantage of a people’s ignorance. There were these pagans who felt threatened by God’s people camped nearby, and rightly so, for they would not cooperate with them. They had seen another people’s demise for not cooperating with God’s people and they feared their God.

The Bible says that the fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom and is wisdom. But that is not the case for those not chosen of God. They do not become wise. As in this case, instead of attaining salvation and joining them, they sought after Balaam to destroy them.

In their ignorance, or lack of wisdom that only comes from God, they believed Balaam could get God to do what they asked Balaam to have God do. After all, Balaam could have an audience with the LORD when he desired to speak with Him and Balaam Prophet-ed financially from them, by approaching God with their requests.

The pagans did not even have enough understanding, which also comes from the LORD, to accept it when Balaam told them he could not change God's mind. So they tried to persuade Balaam by lavishing him with gifts and by giving him a position of authority. They believed his attempt would be worth the investment and by their persuasion they could get their desired results. And Balaam took advantage of their ignorance for profit.

Balaam truly was a Prophet. And Balaam truly could have conversations with God. He would talk to God and God would talk to him. But unfortunately for Balaam, God talked to him in the same manner as he talked to Cain. Both did not serve God in his decreed order.

This is abuse of privilege at the highest level. Well, maybe almost. Balaam was a problem because he profited from the ignorance of pagan's. God would never listen to them anyway. They serve gods of their own creation and imagination, gods that do not exist. There is only one God in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

But wait a minute. Let’s think about this for a while. Perhaps a Prophet that profits financially from believers is even a greater abuse of privilege. In fact, if that prophet is not a Prophet after all but a false prophet he is in big trouble. It will be worse for him than if a millstone were tied around his neck if he were to harm one of God’s children. There is prophecy that states that there has and will be false prophets, teachers of error, and false Christ's, until the end of the age.

Do you study the Bible as you have been instructed to do, to show yourself to God and others, and to show yourself that you are in fact approved of God? Are you in a constant state of refinement as you come into greater knowledge of his word? 
We must all be teachable.

I don't belong to a Church. I belong to Jesus.

I don't belong to a Church. I belong to Jesus.

No Church on earth owns me. No Church on earth died on the cross for me. No Church can ever save me. I am of the Church. And the only one that owns me is Jesus Christ! He alone purchased me and that with his blood.

I did not join the roles. I am his bond servant yet his brother. When he returns he is not coming back for your Church or any other Church for that matter. Churches they come and Churches they go. See Revelation chapter 3. Take note of the report cards Jesus gave them. They did not fare so well. They all failed.

When Jesus returns he is not coming back for a Church. He is not coming back for Church’s. He is coming back for the Church. There is only one Church and the Church is people. The Church is not a building. The church is not a denomination. The Church is people. Some of the Church does meet in Church buildings. Some in Church’s are not part of the Church.

The Church is people who have been chosen by the Father before the foundation of the earth. And the Father has given us to his Son Jesus the Christ. And no one else can come to the Father except through his Son Jesus the Christ. And the Father and the son have filled us with the Holy Spirit. By the Holy Spirit we are being conformed to Christ’s image.

Now that is an ownership that is not transferable and is preferable. If you belong to a Church you can transfer your membership from building to building as often as you desire. But to be Christ’s is not a membership it is an ownership. It is permanent, and it cannot be transferred, lost, or stolen.

A membership provides no security but ownership does. There is nothing we can do to separate ourselves from God. His unbreakable love binds us to him. Now that’s security. So no, I don't belong to a Church. The head of the Church is not someone installed in a building or someone who has a TV or radio show.

I am of the Church. Together we are the Church.

There is no body better than Jesus’! We are his body and His temple. And Jesus Christ is the head of his body.

About Me

My photo

I am a Community Chaplain (Helps Ministry) in Jackson, MS. I enjoy meeting new people and forming relationships which is ministry. I enjoy Public Preaching, writing about the Bible, discussing the Bible and most any contemporary topic. 

Winston, a graduate of Bay Cities Bible Institute, Communications major at Kaplan Online University 3.9 GPA was asked, “What did it take to become the type of writer you are? He replied he had to leave mother, father, and sister, etc. After believing Malachi and Paul, Winston figured, “Why not try all of Gods word the same way?” and the word of God hasn't failed him yet. He completed Clinical Pastoral Education (C.P.E.) now a Chaplain, and has been a Systems Programming Analyst, and traveled across the country job related and he even went on a tour of the White House. His life testimony also includes his journey from a large family with all needs met but not many wants. He also began a trek in ministry traveling across the country with his second wife. Then he continued with a trek through homelessness, shelters, and transitional homes. During his homeless trek he carried in his backpack a laptop he purchased and he began to learn how to write. After going through all the trials and tribulations associated with that life style he prayed, “LORD if you ever have me write another book please give me a roof over my head.” Well, he did and he’s completed a total of twenty-one books.
