We began to take a look last week at the current world-view that permeates Western culture, namely post-modernism. We saw that this began sometime late in the 20th century and is still in development. It is a rejection of central authority and an embracing of the group mentality. Not everyone, of course, accepts this world-view, but it is the predominate one in our age. There are several characteristics of postmodernism. My friend Dr. Larry Oats has identified five of them. First is abandon- ment; a rejection of objectivity of any kind. This is relativism. Truth is not fixed and objective, but variable and relative. Truth is personal--something can be true for one person but not true for another. This "personal" aspect of truth has to be limited, however, for the individual is not important in postmoderuism. It takes a village to raise a child; so it takes a community to establish truth. Thus truth is societal--truth is determined by society, not by individuals. As one put it, "Truth is what your contemporaries let you get away with." Second is truanc. The best means of avoiding problems is to retreat from them. Governments have become adept at refus- ing to actually deal with problems, but rather simply to allow them to continue to an indef'mite future point when "we will take care of it." Individuals become dependent on someone else, especially government, to solve their problems. Third is drift; yielding to a meaningless end. Life has no purpose in this world-view. There is no reason or explanation for why things are the way they are, people simply "go with the flOW." Fourth is , or self-loathing. Thus we must apologize for our country, our families, even our race. Cultural diversity is the most important thing. It is in melting pot civilizations (America, Western Europe, and other similar areas) where we find post-modernism most prevalent. Finally, there is promiscuity; an acceptance of anything and everything as legitimate and right. This relativism affects everything. Moraliiy cannot be objective; it is simply a con- vention or even a convenience for the sake of the community. Therefore, like truth, what is moral for one community may not be for another. Some areas of culture are more postmodern than others, especially religion, ethics, and art. Science, mechanics, engi- neering, and related fields, seem to be less affected. It will be quite interesting when relativism enters auto mechanics: 'You've got three good tires, and two spark plugs, so you are good to go." As you look around our society, are not these five character- istics evident? When marriage no longer has a definition, and the Boy Scouts are no longer able to hold up a standard, we are in the throes of post-modernity. Without the concept of objec- tive truth (because there is no one god for post-modems), one cannot pass judgment on another's belief system. Rather, we must embrace their belief system as equal to our own. Those of us who believe the Bible and its objective truth have our work cut out for us in the days ahead. I fear, and pray, for the next generation. www.ibcwestbrook.org CLUB NOTES TOPS WESTBROOK -- TOPS Club No. 1336 meets at Grace Lutheran Church, Westbrook, on Monday.
