Christianity–Total Truth for the World

In the last blog I mentioned Nancy Pearcey calling Christianity ‘Total Truth.” This total truth, a Christian worldview, is a biblically informed perspective on the world. Christianity starts with the presupposition that God exists due to the order in the universe and the moral order in the world. God reveals Himself generally through nature and [&hellip

Witnessing in the Post-Modern Age (Part 4)

The best witnessing comes when you allow a person to examine their worldview’s starting assumption, then look at their philosophy of what’s real, and their ethics on how to live, and then ask them to check their worldview with the real world around them. Do they believe that there’s no God? How do they know [&hellip

Witnessing in the Post-Modern Age (Part 3)

Beliefs can be useful yet false; for instance, take the belief in Santa Claus. Telling children to be good so Santa will bring presents on Christmas has a certain usefulness to it, but there is no one actually coming down the chimney. Another example of a false belief that can be useful is the political spin [&hellip

Witnessing in the Post-Modern Age (Part 2)

According to Post-Modern thinking, there is no Truth, just beliefs that are products of human subjectivity. You don’t test whether something is objectively true; you see if it works or has beneficial effects in the lives of people who believe it. For example, does it make them happy or give them meaning? That’s what makes [&hellip

Witnessing in the Post-Modern Age (Part 1)

We need to remember that all worldviews begin with assumptions. Nancy Pearcey states it like this: others “promote their own views as unbiased and rational, suitable for the public square, while denouncing religious views as biased or prejudiced. This tactic has often cowed Christians into being defensive about our faith…The mistake lies in thinking there [&hellip

Witnessing apart from the “Two-Story” Truth

What makes witnessing so difficult in today’s Post-Modern age is the fact that because of this dichotomy, or two-story truth, religion is respected but irrelevant. It’s just your own personal belief; it’s not anything that we can use in the public arena, since there are no universal truths for all people. Regarding issues like abortion, [&hellip

Post-Modernism and pedophilia

Remember that in Post-Modernism, there is no Truth for all people, just relative truths for individuals and groups.  I have warned my students at Milwaukee Lutheran High School for years that one day I will be teaching how we should not have sex with children even if the culture permits it.  That day is getting closer. Check out [&hellip

Post-Modernism & The “Two-Story” Truth

In the Post-Modern world in which we live there is no universal Truth (capital “T”).  There are only “truths” (small “t”) that are particular to a society and limited to individual perception. On the other hand, Christianity is a comprehensive, unified worldview that addresses all of life and reality. It is not just religious truth [&hellip

Responding to Post-Modern times

Christians are called to witness to others. So how can we do that effectively today? Ravi Zacharias gives us some pointers for dealing with Post-Modern public situations. In order to present the Gospel today, instead of opening the Bible first, ask questions of your audience instead. Then illustrate your point with examples. Finally bring the truth, [&hellip

Responding to Post-Modern thought

How do we respond to these cultural consequences of Post-Modern thought? Here are some suggestions. First, we need to understand the times and be aware of the various mindsets around us. 1 Chronicles 12:32 mentions men who joined David to fight with him “who understood the times and knew what Israel should do.” In similar [&hellip
