Today’s post is the final entry in my video series on Incarnational Apologetics, In the last three posts, I outlined the problems of Secularization, Pluralization, and Privatization. In this final post, I want to explore the fourth and final problem of Polarization.
At the core of Polarization, is the tragic loss of community replaced by alienation. Ravi Zacharias has written,
“On the heels of the Enlightenment, existentialism was waiting to be born and on the heels of existentialism, alienation was waiting to be born.”
I am here to report, that the baby of alienation is alive and growing fast into full blown societal fissures; leaving individual emotionally isolated and spiritually alone. This is what I call “Polarization”.
Polarization is the ultimate consequence of a Secularized, Pluralized and Privatized society demonstrated in the balkanization of civic, social, religious and family structures.
The following video outlines the growing problem of Polarization and some of the solutions we, as followers of Jesus need to implement if we are to be truly effective Incarnational Apologists.
