Let’s face it. We live in a world where our view of truth has become subjective. The moral absolutes that have guided society for thousands of years suddenly have become relative. What’s right for one person is wrong for another. And if we question the status quo, we are labeled “intolerant.”

Many people don’t want to acknowledge an absolute truth because they don’t want to face their sin. If there is no absolute truth, then how could there be an absolute morality? And if there is no morality, there is no sin. They believe the absence of an absolute truth is a license to do what they want. They see it as freedom. But ultimately, we know that “freedom” is false. Sin is nothing but bondage – a set of chains that leads to destruction and despair.

Regardless of what the world says, there are still many people in the world who are searching for something deeper. They are searching for truth. That truth is only found in Jesus Christ. But they can only know it if we, as believers, are willing to step out in faith and share that truth with them.

So, how do we share God’s truth in such a subjective world?

Truth, by its own definition, is very narrow. Only the right answer is true. Everything else is false. Real truth doesn’t change. Someone can believe that 2+2 is 5, but it doesn’t change the math. The answer is 4. When we talk with others about absolute truth, we can remind them that they can believe whatever they like, but their belief alone doesn’t make it true. We can encourage them to pursue truth, not mere opinion, belief, or whatever is politically correct at the moment.

Once someone is truly open to knowing the truth, then we have an open door to present God’s truth. But as 1 Peter 3:15 admonishes us, we must do this with gentleness and respect. Don’t push. Ask permission before you share about spiritual matters. Some people will be open to listening. Others will not. Respect their wishes, and pray for another opportunity. But if they are willing, proceed with compassion and concern for their eternity.

Share what God has done in your life. Your story is powerful because it is unique and personal. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable and share how God has changed your life.

Keep the focus off what the world says and on what God has said and done. True freedom only comes from knowing the truth. The truth of God’s word is what the person need to be set free (John 8:32). If at all possible, keep distractions at a minimum while explaining the greatest news of all.

Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to the person’s heart. Remember, it’s not our job to convict people of their sin. That’s the Holy Spirit’s job. It is our job to share the Gospel. But always ask if they are ready to take that final step and accept the free gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ. They might just say, Yes!
