    Definition of Post Modernism

    How would you define Post Modernism? How do we define it from a Christian worldview?

    Postmodern, whatever seems right and true to you is your truth and your personal right. you are right, because being right feels right, and truth is only found in how you feel about things. God is who you would like Him to be. There are no absolutes and EVERYTHING is relative.

    I agree with some who have noted that Post Modernism is not really post modernism but simply another type of modernism.

    Modernism made man the measure for truth. Modernists of the past were convinced that a universally binding Truth existed but that Truth was deduced or induced by the power of human reason or through the sciences where man measured and reported that Truth.

    Post-modernism, however, is not the abandonment of man as the measure but simply the idea that a universally binding Truth exists. The new orthodoxy, with respect to modernism, is that each man is his own measure as long as no man is intolerant of this orthodoxy. That is to say that a man who decides that he wants to bear the News of an external and eternal Truth of the Scriptures is ruled as a heretic of the new orthodoxy. Post modernism is "man the measure" with a vengeance.

    I think Post-Modernism is really nothing more than 20th century Existentialism taken to its absurd end.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
