The Secular Worldview and The Bible

Posted in Christ and Culture,Christian Theology by sosipater on August 11, 2006

Check out Dr. Mohler’s commentary today on

A Deep and Radical

Antagonism—The Bible

and Secular Worldviews

Here are the closing two paragraphs.

Christians are often perplexed by resistance to the Bible and to the Gospel. We tend to distance ourselves from the reality that the Bible sounds so exceedingly strange to modern and postmodern ears. We underestimate the distance of the divide between biblical Christianity and secular worldviews.

All this should remind us of our constant evangelistic and apologetic task–and of the fact that salvation is all by grace. After all, it’s not that we were smart enough to wade through all this and emerge as believers. Instead, our eyes were opened so that we would see. That radical antagonism James Orr was talking about isn’t overcome by force of argument and persuasion alone, but by grace. As we engage in the controversies and debates of this age, we had better keep that great fact always in the forefront of our thinking.

I think what is important here is Dr. Mohler’s reminder not to abandon evangelism and apologetics, but for them to be grace filled, winsome, and characterized by an understanding of the role of God’s grace in each of our lives.

    Law and Grace my friend, Law and Grace, these are the necessary components of our evangelism and apologetics.

    This is probably just a taste of what Dr. Mohler will be talking about at Ligonier.

    Pete,

    So true. Perhaps you could elaborate a bit? If you have already done so on your blog just point me in the right direction.

    Dax,

    I was thinking the same thing.

    Thanks guys,
    Russ
