   In Christ Jesus the subjective rules over the objective in this temporal world =  while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.   In the unregenerate world the exact opposite is true as the conflicting assertations of self make the subjective a whirlwind of confusion, strife and division.

I guess these words can be variously understood. We use these terms often. Objective used to describe truth, the facts of the Bible, the facts regarding Christ's Person and work

Subjective to refer to our personal experience of these facts and truths.

For example, Christ is the propitiation for our sins and for those of the whole world. 1 John 2:2. That is an objective fact.

To be delivered out of the authority of darkness and transferred into the kingdom of the Son of God's love, in whom we have redemption, is a subjective experience. Colossians 1:13-14

   Amen.  Our assessment of objective is always subject to error, but as so far as we are living through Christ Jesus by faith the subjective becomes the ultimate arbiter of truth.
