Modern culture has abandoned the idea of absolute truth. The Bible warns of this in 2 Timothy 4:3–4, “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths.” Are we in this era now? What is the church’s role? Are apologetics necessary? Why are so many young people walking away from the faith? Can there be absolute truth, and what does the Bible have to say about it? Adam Butler writes to inform us of the dangers of an ever-changing culture and the need for the truth of God’s Word.
