  1. 1 Peter 3:13-16 There Is Hope For A Postmodern World

  2. A worldview is a set of presuppositions (assumptions which may be true, partially true or entirely false) which we hold (consciously or subconsciously, consistently or inconsistently) about the basic makeup of our world….They are generally unquestioned by each of us, rarely, if ever, mentioned by our friends, and only brought to mind when we are challenged by a foreigner from another ideological universe. James Sire, The Universe Next Door, 16, 17

  3. Sources of Authority • Revelation • Reason (modernism)

  4. The idea emerged that by a method of systematic doubt, the human mind—or Reason (often capitalized)—could attain to godlike objectivity and certainty…. Descartes helped to establish a form of rationalism that treated Reason not merely as the human ability to think rationally but as an infallible and autonomous source of truth. Reason came to be seen as a storehouse of truths independent of any religion or philosophy. Total Truth, Nancy Pearcey, 39

  5. Sources of Authority • Revelation • Reason (modernism) • “We ought never to allow ourselves to be persuaded of the truth of anything unless on the evidence of our reason.” Rene Descartes

  6. “There are no hard distinctions between what is real and what is unreal, nor between what is true and what is false. A thing is not necessarily either true or false; it can be both true and false.” Harold Pinter Sources of Authority • Revelation • Reason (modernism) • Experience (postmodernism)

  8. “It is up to you to give [life] a meaning, and value is nothing but the meaning that you choose.” Jean-Paul Sartre Sources of Authority • Revelation • Reason (modernism) • Experience (postmodernism)

  9. “It's a lot like religion. You pick and choose what works for you.” Johnny Depp Sources of Authority • Revelation • Reason (modernism) • Experience (postmodernism)

  10. Sources of Authority • Revelation • Reason (modernism) • Experience (postmodernism) • “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.” Jesus Christ
