In this part of my series on Incarnational Apologetics, I want to explore the four key problems:
Today’s video post picks up with a discussion of Pluralization.
To be certain, there are many positive qualities found in Pluralization.
- Art / Architecture
But, as I discuss in the video, the world of Art illustrates a deeper problem with Pluralization when we compare the “Tyranny of Single Point Perspective” to the “Freedom of Cubism”.
Putting aside then the good of Pluralization, how can we define its more negative effects on society? As I define it in the video:
Pluralization, in the negative, is the process through which any exclusivist foundation for reason is eroded by giving equal value to a multiplicity of philosophical ideologies resulting in the inability for individuals to share a consensus.
I contend that without a Universal Truth to guide us, we cannot properly appreciate the true beauty of other cultures. And, even more damning, without a Universal Truth to guide us, we embrace all cultural practices as equally moral.
How than can we “remove the roof” of Pluralization?
- Know what the Bible says is Truth and stand firm–not all worldviews/cultures are equally good.
- Embrace the blessing of cultural diversity that does not compromise The Gospel.
- Work to build consensus within your marketplace.
Enjoy the video and take time to explore the problem of, and the solution to, Pluralization.
