    Not sure what you mean by relative truth, compared to Absolute and Relative understanding of absolute truth. People interpret information and declare absolute truth, when it is not. Someone else does the same thing, which is different from the previous person, yet they call that absolute truth.
    To be able to declare absolute truth, you would need to know absolute truth: that would make you God. Anything else is a relative understanding or interpretation of what absolute truth is.
    When it says "in the beginning was the word", is this relative or absolute? Since the word came from God, God would have had to be there first, before the word. Is this talking about the beginning of God or the word which came from God?
    It is easy to talk about absolute and relative and make out that we have absolute truth and others don't, when all we are saying is that we have an interpretation of what we think is absolute truth, based on the information around us.
    There are so many different so called "Christian" groups who declare absolute truth, but teach different truth, teach a different Jesus and condemn others as non-christian.
    What is your absolute truth?

    Muslims don't think truth is relative.
