There are no autonomous facts …

Because no fact, standing alone, innately interprets itself.

All 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, however, it becomes clear that 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.

That means He alone is able to know everything about anything, since nothing exists apart from His comprehensive knowledge and authority …

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

Without Him and His resulting external written Word, where He authoritatively 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.

Because of this, postmodern existentialism – which rejects all external interpretive frameworks and transcendent revelation – has no basis for claiming to know truth, or understand meaning, about anything.

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

That there can be no authoritative propositional claims.

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

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

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