Postmodernism denies the existence of a real world "out there" that we must conform to. There is no God, no transcendent morality, no good or evil, and no absolute truth.

Titus 3:3, "For we also were once thoughtless and senseless, obstinate and disobedient, deluded and misled; [we too were once] slaves to all sorts of cravings and pleasures, wasting our days in malice and jealousy and envy, hateful (hated, detestable) and hating one another."

There is a multiplicity of responses to the question of Christian involvement in politics.

Justice Is A Gospel Issue!

Social justice has become the primary mantra of the 21st Century.

Most are not quite sure what the expression "social justice" means, but because it sounds right and so many influential people are joining the marches for it, they feel that ...

The Deadly Virus of Negativity

In the Old Testament account of the wilderness experience of the children of Israel, we see a "budding" nation allow the sin of negativity to become a powerful, destructive stronghold in their midst. The Apostle Paul writes and warns us not to emulate the Israelites in the desert in 1 Corinthians 10:10: "do not murmur as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed by th...
