Post "Modern" Vs. Post "Christian": Which is it?

Here's an interesting article quoting some of my comments that appeared in "The Christian Post" today dealing with our obsession with who's too post-modern and who's not post-modern enough.

  1. I think this article raises some very critical points. I am reminded of Jesus having to address the religious leaders of his day and telling them that they needed to pay tithes and show mercy. They were busy doing the one while forsaking the other. So we, as the church must also realize, as Phil has stated, we need to have a genuine discussion about “Post-modernism/Post-Christianity” and at the same time act out the faith that we say we believe. The bible is full of instances where God told his people not to take on the fallen ways of the nations around them. They were called to stand out – but we often want to blend in. But to follow Jesus is not to blend in with the fallen aspects of unregenerated existence, but to stand out and demonstrate to a world that God is real and interested in our daily affairs. I watched a guy, just over a week ago, walk by my church and stop to urinate on the lawn. I was so shocked, that by the time I even considered running up the block to say something to him he was already done and walking off, like everything was cool. This is truly a Post-Christian culture. Ok. Now that we’ve established that… what are we going to do about it? God is calling us to do the same thing now that He said just over 2000 years ago (I’ll paraphrase), “They will know that I AM real by the love that you act out, not only with one another, but with those who don’t yet know Me.” Beyond the latest media tech – it still always comes down to LOVE… DEMONSTRATED LOVE.

  2. I agree with A3, How were John the Baptist, Jesus, Peter, Paul, etc. thought of by the “religious” and “secular” culture of their day. Were they considered “out of touch – or worse, nuts,”? by whom and why.
