“This is not good news” by David Wells

“The vanity, emptiness, and futility of fallen reason are the affliction visited upon sinners by God’s judgment. In every age, this has followed different directions. In the postmodern world today, whose center lies in the autonomous self, all of which is yielding a bountiful harvest of intellectual emptiness and moral disorder, this is not good news. What the postmodern world celebrates in its rejection of all absolutes and in its assumed right to define privately is a sign of God’s wrath (cf. Rom. 1:22).”

–David Wells, Above All Earthly Pow’rs: Christ in a Postmodern World (Grand Rapids, Mi.: Eerdmans, 2006), pp. 201-02.
