There has been a dramatic measurable shift in the West away from the historic, Biblical Christianity. It began a hundred years ago with theological liberalism, social Darwinism, and the so-called “Enlightenment” period, but the very recent cumulative movement of postmodern relativism has significantly impacted Western culture.
Professional polls like Barna, Gallup, Harris, PEW and more consistently demonstrate that over two-thirds of the U.S. population now denies the existence of absolute truth. This issue of the Areopagus Journal describes the social and cultural applications and implications of postmodern relativism. The article answer the questions and objections to Christianity such as, “Do all religions lead to Jesus?, What about those who have never heard?, and who are you to judge others (intolerance)?”
