We define “Postmodernism” as a particular way of looking at a life or set of ideas. It is perhaps more correctly referred to as “postmodernity” a characteristic of our culture that is gradually coming to distinguish much of our human activity… It is what is trending in the secular world. We see postmodernism everywhere…. It has created a dilemma in the moral ethics of our society today. People have become blinded by the lack of knowledge of what contains the truth. They say that the truth is how you see it. They rely on and put their faith in modern science, the government and all the worlds system. They accept the things of the world even without challenging the research or the avenues of knowledge by which these precepts were conceived by. They are being tossed to and fro by whatever “New Age Doctrine” appears on the scene. God warns us in His word, not to be deceived!!! We have entered an age where all reason has become null and void.
The postmodern age shadows the intellectual age “The Enlightened Age”. Which brings a new concept of having your own Spiritual light. They believe that is useless to speak in the name of…. or against …….Reason, Truth or knowledge. They believe that they create their own destiny and that there is no intrinsic nature in the world. How sad it must be to not believe in anything other than the power of your own intellectual ideas. Without reason in our lives there is nothing to challenge our mind, will or emotions. We have become like in the days of Noah; disobedient spirits who have become trapped by the creation of our own prison that they call freedom…. The world needs a Saviour whether they realize it or not. The postmodern age is based on a somewhat skewed sense of socialism; it dictates that all things in society are driven toward building the social identity of a person within secular humanism with no concern of their spiritual wellbeing.
Postmodernism affects every person, especially the believer in the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are faced with the challenge of presenting what the world would call an ancient text, the bible; as the truth. The world has been so desensitized to the adversary’s plan of destruction that their hearts have waxed cold to the Lord’s plan for their lives. Postmodernism has become a modern-day pandemic…. It creates uncertainty in all areas of life….. It is a fleeting vision with no true value. It is built on the ideals of a lost people grasping at a way to validate their very own existence. We as followers of Christ must walk with the truth in our hearts ready to give a defence of the word of God; which has outlasted many cultural diversions through the ages.
We must activate the power of the Kingdom of God that He has given to us and that the enemy thinks he still controls. We have the authority over the darkness, we have the authority over the works of the enemy, and all authority was given to us by our Heavenly Father. We must stand in that authority in unity to bring about change in the world. For it is written that if two shall agree in my name it will come to pass. We as believer’s can cause the enemy to flee and breathe life back into the social worldviews to bring restoration to a denigrating moral order. Jesus set us free not to be bound by worldly views or by skeptics of the faith. Through our freedom we can witness to the blind and restore their vision, we can make the deaf man hear and make the lame man walk…. Surely if we can do those things we should be able to plant a seed to change a mind. Each seed planted grows to cause affect to all others that they come in contact with.
They will see the truth of what a life of having a Saviour is, hear the voice of His Spirit, and walk in the way of the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ. No man can come to the father without first going to the son.Defend the Lord and His word!! Stand on the position of faith in your Loving Saviour!! Amen

Matthew 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Matthew 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me
Ephesians 4:14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive
1 Peter 3:19-21 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; 20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ
