Zack Hunt – If You’re Defending Absolute Truth, You’re Defending The Wrong Thing

This is an excellent article. Let me share here just a few quotes:

If you find yourself in the ideological trenches, spending all your time and energy fighting off the heretics and the godless, as if you and your fellow prophets are the last light of truth in a world of darkness, I urge you to recall the words of God spoken through Isaiah and know this.

You’re defending the wrong thing.

This is what, or rather who, we should be defending.

The orphan.

The widow.

The oppressed.

The least of these right outside our door.

But like the Israel of Isaiah’s day, we suffer from an idolatry of faith that values theology and tradition more than people. We’re plagued by an idolatrous obsession over ideas that’s driven by a unquenchable need for control, a paranoid fear of the other, intense personal insecurity, and a pathological need to be right and have others recognize that we’re right.

But the gospel isn’t about absolute truth.

It’s about absolute love.

I hope this was sufficient to raise your interest.
