Truth & Argumentation (5 Short Video Clips)

Compass or Wind-Sock? (or) The Christian, Culture, and Truth

A compass which points first this way, and then that has ceased to be a compass. Detached from its fixed point of reference and distracted by some new, closer attraction, it is worse than broken – misleading and deceptive. A navigator who, when asked for direction, indifferently shrugs, humbly admits “I don’t know,” or compassionately asks “which way do you think is right?” has ceased to be a navigator. He is not even being a friend – especially not if he secretly knows the way, but cares too little for your well-being, and too much for his own comfort to speak truth.
