Many of us know that the left espouses tolerance and acceptance, yet they demonstrate absolutely no tolerance for the values of a conservative. Much of what the left believes in revolves around moral relativity, which essentially means that there is no absolute truth and all cultures and belief systems are equally good, or have the same moral equivalency. It’s funny how they don’t seem to apply this so called “higher level of morality” to Christianity, to many on the left the Christian religion represents all that is wrong with the world. In looking for how best to describe the beliefs of the left I often quote Saul Alinsky‘s Rules for Radicals. I believe the following statement best describes what the idea of moral relativity is while putting the actions of the left into sharper perspective.
“To say that corrupt means corrupt the ends is to believe in the immaculate conception of ends and principles. The real arena is corrupt and bloody.”
Think about what that means for a moment. What Alinsky is saying is that there is no absolute right or wrong, only what we as men, create in our own psyche. That is a popular theory driving many of today’s social science curriculums. When he is discussing the idea of corrupted methods corrupting the end results, and saying this belief is equivalent to the ridiculous idea that there is an absolute truth, he is in essence describing the morality from which the left operates. The left does not believe that anything they do is wrong because the concept of an absolute does not exist; therefore, whatever methods they employ in achieving their ultimate end, (communism) is acceptable because they believe that end is what is best for everyone.
Therefore, by corrupting themselves in order to achieve this end, they are in a sense, expressing their twisted sense of morality. By describing the real arena as being corrupt and bloody, Alinsky is essentially admitting that the game of politics and social change is all out warfare, and they are willing to do whatever it takes to win.
We have to bring ourselves to the point where absolute truth and the idea of absolute right and wrong are worth fighting for. We can’t let ourselves be beat down by those who believe that lies and deceit are the way to ultimate victory. If you haven’t noticed, the left never reaches a point of reflection, where they seem to realize that what they are doing is wrong, and they won’t. They will continue to lie, cheat and steal until they have accomplished their goal. They will take full advantage of any little “crisis” along the way as well. I don’t know about you America, but there is an awful lot worth fighting for here in America, among those are my absolute right to seek truth.

I seek first the kingdom of Christ because everything else in this world is perishing. All that I have is from God who is always faithful. I have worked hard all my life and will continue as long as God lends me breath. The mistakes and bad judgments I made in my life all stemmed from me trying to work things out by myself. I have learned the hard way that the victory over all of my problems and the answers to all of my desires lie solely in my Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is now my desire to share the words that God gives me to encourage and give hope to others who need the strength that only faith in Christ can give.
