Dear friends, there is a great malignancy in our land called secular progressivism - a movement that ironically wants diversity through relentless conformity. But we cannot continue in our attempts to root out the cancer with the band-aid solution of surface arguments. While I do not doubt their sincerity in wanting to resolve the issues of the world, secularists do not know God, history or human nature, so their so-called solutions only serve to exacerbate the world's problems. I think we can all agree that there are serious problems in our world, but we are far apart on how these problems become solved. You and I know that sin cannot be effectively treated with Secularism, Marxism, liberation theology, more laws which increase power to politicians or re-educating our children. These "solutions" are the problem. They are a destructive force. Any view of the world which does not recognize the inherent sinfulness of man will put no limits on man's power. We can already see that the rule of law and balance of power is being torn down piece by piece and replaced by the rule of man. And so the more these "solutions" are forced upon us and our children the greater divisions and corruptions we will see.
So instead of treating cancer with a band-aid we must begin challenging our theological opponents such that they come face to face with their own basic assumptions and presuppositions about life. Socially liberal presuppositions about truth and the nature of humanity are as religious as anyone else. They have created their own narrative of the world and the nature of human beings, about who we are and where we are going. "Progressives" even have a whole narrative of redemption and liberation. But instead of jumping on the same old treadmill by arguing about each issue according to the weekly news cycle, we must go deeper still. We must be be relentless in revealing the inconsistency of the underlying ideology which 1) claims to affirm moral relativism with 2) their constant insistence (often through judicial fiat) that we all conform to their assumptions about the meaning of life. As long as they insist OTHERS must conform and embrace to THEIR view, then they deny the very moral relativism they claim to believe: a fatal blow to their totalitarian ideology. And then, most importantly, pray that God open their eyes to see how their view does not line up with the world or the nature of human beings ... how they oppose God and need a Savior with whom they can find forgiveness. Again, pray, for no argument has its effect until God changes the heart.
