ISLAM & SECULARISM: CAUGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF TWO WORLD VIEWS
The modern secular university is a wasteland of relativism, multiculturalism, and nihilism. Are we supposed to be surprised at how this "world view" manifests itself? Under secularism, why should anger be restrained? Why should we not kill? The fruits of secularism are tragic, and are an embarrassment. It is absurd to think that the secularism found in the West is attractive and inviting to Islam, and will ultimately breed assimilation.
This was confirmed in an official statement by the Iranian government, that upon first glance appears to be replete with hypocrisy and irony:
"Attacking innocent people, irrespective of their race and nationality, is contrary to divine and human values no matter which group or person carries out such an act under any name," the Iranian statement said."
A close look at the above statement reveals that Iran is actually being consistent in its position of killing innocents. Only killing based upon "race and nationality" is condemned. Killing of "infidels" in the name of allah, is not.
Authentic Christians are caught in the middle of two world views that are zealous in their hatred of Christianity. We must stand firm and stand out as being different from the culture at large. Only our deeply lived counter-culturalism will reconvert the West. The secularists stand for nothing, believe in nothing, condemn nothing, and espouse nothing. Dogma, doctrine, and discipline are attractive to those who possess nothing.
