Defending  Historic Faith in a
Postmodern World


Post­mod­ernism in many ways is a reac­tion against mod­ernism that has been brew­ing since the late 19th Cen­tu­ry.  In post­mod­ernism the intel­lect is replaced by will, rea­son by emo­tion, and moral­i­ty by rel­a­tivism.  Real­i­ty is noth­ing more than a social con­struct;  truth equals pow­er.  Your iden­ti­ty comes from a group.  Post­mod­ernism is char­ac­ter­ized by frag­men­ta­tion, inde­ter­mi­na­cy, and a dis­trust of all uni­ver­sal­iz­ing (world­views) and pow­er struc­tures (the estab­lish­ment).  It is a world­view that denies all world­views (“sto­ries”).  In a nut­shell, post­mod­ernism says there are no uni­ver­sal truths valid for all peo­ple.  Instead, indi­vid­u­als are locked into the lim­it­ed per­spec­tive of their own race, gen­der or eth­nic group.  It is Niet­zsche in full bloom.

Christianity and the Future

In the­ol­o­gy it is known as the study of Escha­tol­ogy. The study of future or final things. How will God wrap-up, or con­clude his­to­ry? Some of the sub­jects are: Christ’s sec­ond advent, the antichrist, the great tribu­la­tion, the bat­tle of Armaged­don, the future of Israel, the mil­len­ni­um, the rap­ture, the res­ur­rec­tion, the final judge­ment, the new heav­ens and the new earth, etc.

The Debate About Gen. 1 – 11

Gen­e­sis 1 – 11 is not a nar­ra­tive of actu­al his­tor­i­cal events as we usu­al­ly define his­to­ry (some­thing that actu­al­ly hap­pened in time and space). Gen. 1 – 11 is seen as the equiv­a­lent of ancient near east­ern cre­ation and flood myths but devoid of most of the ele­ments of pagan­ism. In oth­er words, it is only a work of lit­er­ary genre. Does it matter?In this Brief­ing Out­line it is our pur­pose to show that the pre­pon­der­ance of evi­dence, par­tic­u­lar­ly from the Bible itself, is that Chap­ters 1 – 11, are to be inter­pret­ed as his­tor­i­cal nar­ra­tive and are foun­da­tion­al to the sto­ry of redemp­tion and the trust­wor­thi­ness of the rest of Scrip­ture.
