There are no autonomous facts …

Because no fact, standing alone, innately interprets itself.

Facts as we perceive them from our finite perspective only find definition and meaning in a broader interpretive framework.

If you stop to consider this, the only interpretive framework able to communicate reliable meaning …

Is the external revelation of an omniscient and omnipotent God who created all things from nothing.

As such, only He knows everything about anything, since nothing exists apart from His comprehensive knowledge and authority …

And there is nothing He doesn’t know which might contradict what He does know.

Without Him and His resulting external written Word, where He defines us and His creation …

We and our “facts” are left solely with ourselves and our own subjective limitations, with no basis for reliable truth claims.

This is why postmodern existentialism, which rejects all transcendent interpretive frameworks and revelation, has no basis for claiming to know truth – or understand meaning – about anything.

Ironically, even some Christians naively fall prey to the postmodern existential absurdity of making the authoritative propositional claim …

That there is no authoritative propositional truth, reality or morality. 

Instead, they make the further absurd external claim that all meaning lies within them …

As they then insist on the right to define Christ and everything else through their own self-referential perceptions.

How frustrating it must be when even the meaning of their absurdities depends on the very God-given foundations of truth and knowledge which they reject.
