Do you know right from wrong?

"Discerning Right From Wrong" was the title of pastor Dave Scudder's sermon this morning out at Macedonia Baptist Church. He used Psalm 25:1-4, 8-10, 12, 13 and 21 as his text. His points:
The four-step process in these verses on how I can discern right from wrong are:
I. Consider the choice; my way or God's way (vv. 1-4)
II Compare your
choice to God's (vv. 8-10)
III. Commit to God's way (vv. 12 and 13)
Count on God's protection (v. 21)
Discerning the right choices should be as
second-nature as tying our shoes, he said. This is achieved by prayer, Bible
study and instruction. The first step toward knowing the difference between
God's way and our way is to decide to follow Christ as our Lord and Savior.
"So what is your decision?" the pastor asked.

For our call to worship, we sang "This Is the Day."
The worship hymn we sang were "Oh, How I Love Jesus," "Glorify Thy Name," and "O, Worship the King."
Music director Linda Wools and her daughter, Janet Jenkins, sang "Surely Goodness and Mercy Shall Follow Me."
For our invitation hymn we sang "I Have Decided to Follow Jesus."

Some Christians nowadays don't believe we can actually know what is right or wrong. They say what is morally and spiritually right for one person may not be what is right another. Do you agree?
Are modern/post-modern Christians right when they say there is no such thing as absolute truth?
What do you think?
