Article: Seven Things You Can't Do As A Moral Relativist by Greg Koukl

In this featured article, Greg Koukl of Stand to Reason unpacks 7 things a moral relativist cannot do.  They are:

Rule #1- Relatives can't accuse others of wrong doing.

Rule #2- Relativists can't complain about the problem of evil.

Rule #3- Relativists can't place blame or accept praise.

Rule #4- Relativists can't claim that anything is unfair or unjust.

Rule #5- Relativists can't improve their morality.

Rule #6- Relativists can't hold meaningful moral discussions.

Rule #7- Relativists can't promote the obligation of tolerance.

You can check out the article here.

Can you think of anything else a relativist can't do?  Share it in the comments!

I also highly recommend the book Koukl co-authored with philosopher Francis Beckwith that deals with relativism entitled Relativism: Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air.

Courage and Godspeed,

Rule #8: Relativists cannot vote.

Rule #9: Relativists cannot raise children. This is similar to Rule #1, rather an expansion of it, which I think makes the implications of moral relativism even starker.
