Alan Shlemon defines objective and subjective truth and shows how to distinguish between the two. Subjective truth claims are about personal preference. Objective truth claims are about external reality. He goes on to define religious pluralism and moral relativism, citing the book of Judges to show what happens when a society takes this approach to truth. Shlemon teaches a tactic he calls "Taking the Roof Off," which can be employed to expose the weaknesses of religious pluralism and moral relativism. Finally, he gives two conflicting definitions of tolerance and shows us why Christians are the most tolerant people in our culture.
