I really think that British writer and apologist G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936) could look into the future when he said the following:

“Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions.”

He was so prescient. People judge truth claims based on whether they conform with societal norms.

It is amazing how many think that truth is determined by popular vote or what popular culture seems to think. Far too many people, even within the church, believe truth is determined by what feels good and is convenient.  The prophet Isaiah gives a stern warning for those who are tempted to view truth in this way, and disdain what is right:

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and shrewd in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21, ESV).

If you go down this path, the world may applaud, but come judgment day you’ll find you are sadly mistaken. If you constantly receive the applause of men for what you believe it may be time to reconsider what you believe.
