The Subtle Clash of Worldviews

Many of us raised in a church environment don’t realize the profound differences between a traditional Biblical worldview and the subjective moral relativism prevalent in modern secular society. It’s easy to go through life oblivious to the ideological battles raging right under our noses.

In the church, we absorb ethical concepts like God-given human dignity, objective rights and wrongs, and the importance of virtue. These ideas remain deep in our bones even once we step outside the walls of Sunday school.

However, mainstream schools, media and pop culture subtly chip away at the notions of moral truth we inherited. Relativism wears the guise of neutrality and tolerance, but quietly tears down the foundations of the moral framework we inherited.

When objectivity gives way to subjectivity, we’re set adrift with no common values. Our institutions, laws, and civil discourse depend on shared ethical grounding. Absent universal morals, power and ego fill the void as compasses.

“We make Men without Chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”
– The Abolition of Man | (ad)

Do we truly believe moral truth exists? Are virtue and vice mere illusions? Is justice nothing but an opinion? A generation saunters to ruin because strong men abdicated their duty.

Ignorance and cowardice sustain the enemies of light. But for those with eyes to see, there can be no neutrality in this war of ideas. Arm yourselves with prayer, insight and conviction. Then speak truth with boldness.

We need men with chests.
