Schaeffer saw Hegel's system as undermining the reality of particular absolute truths, such as, "That behavior is morally wrong," or, "That painting is ugly." William Lane Craig says, "This denial of absolute has gradually made its way through Western culture," and results in despair, because, "without absolutes man's endeavors degenerate into absurdity."
The cure for this despair can only come by reaffirming belief in the absolute God of Christianity revealed in the Bible. Only then can man and his culture avoid degeneracy, meaninglessness, and despair.
