The Failure of Modernism

To many non-Christians and liberals the examples of the 20th century should show the failure of modernism. Two world wars, Communism, Nazism, The Carter and Clinton administrations, and the persecution of Christians. The Times of London makes this point:
We live in an age when modernists regard religion with something approaching panic. It is like the Devil’s attitude to Holy Water. The world needs religion to address the moral issues. In the advanced societies it is these moral issues that now mock us. Europe and North America are hugely wealthy regions, but they are morally impoverished. Broken families, drugs, booze, youth gangs, crime, neglect of children and the old, the sheer boredom of shopaholicism, terrorism, the inner-city slums, materialism itself, are all the marks of a global society in decline. Societies can be judged by their care for children. Social education must start in the family and must have a moral basis. Children need to be taught to distinguish between right and wrong.
Secularism, liberalism, communism, and socialism among many others have shown that when puting 'man' at the center instead of God, you create havoc and destroy the proper order of the Universe. To read the rest of this article click here.
