You are going to confront two things during your life: reality and God. Those confrontations are assured, whether we like it or not, so with that in mind, it's important to know what life is all about. John flies solo today, taking a look at those two confrontations amid the avalanche of lies and blizzard of ignorance we see in the West today. Caught up in the blizzard and the avalanche are many young people who are being taught to embrace a narrative or a truth claim, regardless of whether it's actually true or not. John illustrates how Marxist thought is completely antithetical to Christmas: one has to be true while the other has to be false. John reads from the Gospel of John showing how Christmas definitely wins that battle.
Many a philosopher has posed the question: what is truth? Some assert that you can have your truth and I can have mine, even if they're different. Others believe in absolute truth, not whatever someone happens to believe on a certain day. Joining us today is Dr. James Thrasher (faithandfreedom.com), Professor of Biblical Studies at Grove City College, who jumps into that fray. He relates his experiences with students and how they need a solid grounding in the absolute quality of truth. It will not only help them navigate the complexities of life, but it will also give them a sense of purpose. In this clash of worldviews we're having today, it's important to ground yourself in absolute truth.
