Truth is Relative

“Unbeliever: Truth is relative

Christian: Do you really want to say that? How about the statement “No truth is absolute.” Let’s call it P. What I want to know is, is P true? If P is not true, then I win the debate, because what you just affirmed you denied. If you say P is true, then what you’re saying is that no truth is absolute, so if there is truth that is absolute, then you’ve contradicted yourself.”

(Bahnsen, Biblical Introduction to Presuppositional Apologetics)
