The Stone-Campbell Restoration Movement originates in a plea for Christians to submit all religious beliefs and practices to those basic New Testament truths which transcend denominational interests and creeds. This article examines the nature of "objective" truth and to what degree these biblical truths require objective truth. It invites readers to reflect on whether the Restoration Movement plea can survive today if Christians abandon the belief that humans can unite on objective truth.
