“A story is told of a man who, resisting the cost of oats he fed his mule, decided to gradually substitute sawdust in its diet. Everything went fine for a while but by the time the mule was satisfied with sawdust, he died. The same is true spiritually. The changeover from truth to error is sometimes a slow process, and the people don’t always know the difference. But, before you know it, they are dead.” 1
We live in a society where truth has been watered down and even abandoned in many cases. You may have heard the term postmodernism used in conversation in recent years. One of the basic beliefs of postmodernism as I see it-and I say that because no one can seem to define postmodernism-is that there are no absolute truths. In a culture that increasingly believes there is no absolute truth it is essential that followers of Christ guard and protect the truth.
