"...if anyone makes the assistance of grace depend on the humility or obedience of man and does not agree that it is a gift of grace itself that we are obedient and humble, he contradicts the Apostle who says, "What have you that you did not receive?" (1 Cor. 4:7), and, "But by the grace of God I am what I am" (1 Cor. 15:10). (Council of Orange: Canon 6)

    We are a community of confessing believers who love the gospel of Jesus Christ, affirm the Biblical and Christ-exalting truths of the Reformation such as the five solas, the doctrines of grace, monergistic regeneration, and the redemptive historical approach to interpreting the Scriptures.

    Relativists and Universal Human Rights

    Relativists cannot consistently make charges of unfairness or injustice or try to promote any kind of universal human rights. Under relativism, the notions of fairness and justice are simply incoherent since both ideas declare that people should receive equal treatment based on an arbitrary external standard.

    An example would be relativists in the USA trying to stop so-called female circumcision in Muslim countries. You cannot consistently maintain you are a relativist and at the same time try to promote arbitrary rights for people who believe differently. Either it is objectively wrong or you are imposing your own arbitrary morality.
