More on 1 Corinthians 2 in a Postmodern World

This is from Cascading Faith:

First, to suggest an apologetic for a postmodern age is ludicrous, for postmodern thought in-of-itself is anti-biblical by its very nature. Second, to recommend an apologetic built around an experiential component weakens the strength of the suggested apologetic and therefore cannot be an advisable solution to contemplate....[T]he Christian youth of today need a strong fundamental grounding in the scriptures. Paul writes to the church in Corinth: “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual” (1 Corinthians 2:12-13). Christians conform not to the world but to the standards of God; they must live apart from the world....Postmodern thought has embedded itself within the Christian community; hence, diligent and discerning teachers of God’s word need to combat the increasing postmodern and pragmatic threat.
