Relativism is an Opportunity for the Church

As I said earlier, I’m reading a bunch of books. From time to time, I may quote small sections for your edification. This comes from Neil Cole‘s book, Church 3.0:

Today, the philosophy of relativism is increasing at an alarming rate. It takes only a short time under such a framework for life to lose all meaning and darkness and despair to pervade all of one’s thoughts. The longer people live under such a philosophy of life, the more they hunger for solid ground beneath their feet. This is what we have to offer. Most of us feel threatened by the doctrine of relativism, but we should not be afraid of it. Most people find it a convenient belief, but not a practical one. The despair it brings creates a ripe climate for the Good News of the Kingdom of God.
