I never learned what these phrases mean; “Its all relative” (relative to what?
Can anyone fill in the gaps in my English comprehension?
Truth is relative to some particular frame of reference, such as a language or a culture. So truth is related to the context in which it is being applied.
What may be a given truth in one culture in not necessarily a given truth in another. I think this may explain any half- defensive answers you receive based on Religion. Everyone wants to think they own the truth. And indeed, in their culture it might be the Politically correct popular opinion – at the time. 🙂
If you were to ask “what time is it?”
Well, that would be relative to each persons location at the time – if you asked it in one town, you would get the same answer from those you asked.
. If you asked it on the internet, you would get different answers based(relatively) on location, the time it took until they read your question and answered it, or how fast they were traveling through space, lol…. all these variables would have a bearing on the answers you received.
Subjectivity is based mostly on personal feelings. It is a concept that, like relativity, it depends on the context in which it is being applied. Example:
What is good for some might not be good for others, and it is up to the individuals feelings or (possibly) circumstance to determine which is good for them individually – or that they could look at the whole picture and try to determine what is best for the majority, or all.
To be beside oneself is a term designating intense feeling, like suprise, or shock –
Fear – (I was beside myself when I looked up and saw the speeding car was almost upon me.)
Anxiety – ( I was beside myself with worry, imagining all kinds of bad things had happened, until you walked in the door.
Joy – I was beside myself in my happiness – never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined this, my good fortune.
Everyone’s belief is their own, yet the Truth of the Bible will never change.
If you get a chance, read the Bible for the greatest truth and reality there is.
it all counts, it is all part of the same group even if it is all diferent like a family.
