I am currently reading “flickering pixels” a book that investigates how technology shapes faith. Most of the points are not new to me, but the author noted the relativism of our modern age. That is, one person’s truth authority is as good as another’s.
The author was against this postmodern view, as am I. However, what if my source of truth is the same as your source of truth, but we each make different meaning out of it? What if my source of truth at one point in my life, means something different to me at a different time of life?
Admitting interpretive difference is, to
me, different than relativism. I believe in an absolute truth, I just also accept my & other human beings fallibility & imperfect interpretation. Perhaps this constant reflection on what is true is the truth we ought seek. After all, this is a journey, not a destination.
