Read history and you will see the crimes and genocide committed in the name of Absolutism. It's just the kind of mentality fostered by authoritarian cults. Since you are apparently still associated with Witness Lee's Local Church movement , it is evidence that this group still encourages absolutist authoritarian cultish thinking as they did when I was involved in the group many years ago.
The bible tells us to "test the spirits to see whether they are from God". And the tests I have provided from Scripture.

You have a serious inability to know right from wrong. The bible is full of absolutes, and we cannot follow God if we are not absolute. The cults of liberalism, pluralism and relativism are a serious problem. Absolute standards are biblical, but the issue is with the standards, not the matter of being absolute.

You started this thread trying to be funny, copying my serious thread in the main forum, with apparently no clue of how to discern spirits. When I started a thread, it was full of informative content. So far you have not explained how you would discern spirits, either subjectively or objectively. Not even offering a human perspective, is it that your little toe tingles, or maybe the hair on your head stands up? How do you discern? Otherwise, just a time-waster as far as I'm concerned.
