01 Aug “No One Has the Truth! Everything’s Relative!” (Let’s Talk About It)

 
When it comes to discussing ideas, it’s commonly said that “everything is relative.” Many open-minded people conclude that, because there are so many differing views, there is no Truth.

 

But is truth relative? Can something be true for one person and not necessarily for another? Does everybody have their own “truth”?

 
Is morality merely a matter of taste? If so, would this belief be livable? Will the world succeed of we continue hurting others?

 

Yet, at the same time, is morality a rigid structure of dos and don’ts where it is always bad to make a certain choice? Can there be more than one [right] way to respond to any given situation?

 
Can there be, in a sense, an objectivity to human nature, which makes a successful and livable world?

 

Personal beliefs throughout history have definitely changed over time. And it does seem obvious, at least to me, that some things do evolve. But is everything subjective? And is “reality” always clear to individuals–especially in an evolving and creative quantum world?

 
G.K. Chesterton said, “Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid.”

 
But is anything really SOLID?

 
Listen in as Joshua shares his heart and answers questions on important subjects. It might give you a different perspective on things.

So WHO is the one reading it? YOURS TRULY!

 

I’ve had so many people tell me that they love listening to audiobooks as they drive or while they’re doing things around the house. So I thought, “Josh, it’s about time you made one!”

 

Remy and I purchased some equipment and did the recording in our own home. We did it suuuuper late at night (or should I say morning) for several days (from 12am-4am) because we had to wait for the noise of the cars driving by our place to die down! LOL!
 

During the recording, I felt strong emotions as I read my own personal stories. What an experience!! But a good one indeed!! You’ll actually get to HEAR my heart on topics such as God, the Bible, grace, hell, the devil, church, and other topics that are important for religious folks to think about.

 

The audiobook was just released on Audible.com today. And it’ll eventually be available on Amazon, iTunes, as well as their global partner sites, within a couple of days.
 

If you’d like to purchase the paperback or kindle version of the book, click here: So You Thought You Knew

 

Happy reading…errr…I mean LISTENING! (Or both!) Thanks for all the love and support.

11 Apr What About the RAPTURE and SECOND COMING OF CHRIST? | Joshua Tongol

 

Date: 3-22-14
Location: San Diego, CA

 

Ask yourself the question, “WHAT IF?”

 

Joshua was raised within the evangelical tradition. Throughout the years, he served as a teacher, pastor, and evangelist at several denominations such as: Pentecostal, Presbyterian, Southern Baptist, and Assemblies of God. He also served as a missionary to the Philippines after graduating from seminary.

 

Although Joshua was the type to always ask questions during his early adult years, he finally found the courage to really question some of his “fundamental” beliefs he held to as an evangelical Christian. He began questioning his understanding of God, the Bible (inerrancy), grace, the gospel, eternal hell, Satan, interfaith, and even church.
