Relative truth-divine relationship

I have come to realize that all truth is relative. What does this mean? Well,that everything we believe as fact was be understood in the context to which it really applies. This makes sense. If truth could not flex to be able to adapt to the everchanging times it would snap under the pressure. If it could not mold to the individual person who was trying to apply that truth to his life, then in realty that truth would not set him free but instead imprision him in the a ridge prison cell. If truth were static then we would be so hestiate to embrace it, and instead would try to break free from it. So in reality truth is not something that can never change, instead it is something that is eternally consistant in changing and adapting to best suit the current situation and yet retain the original essence that set it apart as truth in the first place. I believe we could apply this principal to God. God then is relative, He is never changes in that he always changes..a divine dichotomy. Yet He retains that which in essence makes Him God. If this can be understood then we will have taken the first step in knowing God and knowing ourselves.

It's 'true' that relative truth is contextual. It's not that truth is flexible, just that it only applies in a given context with it's own content. Relative truth never liberated anyone.

Absolute Truth is unchanging and there is only One. You ARE that Truth.
