Article: A dialogue with a pious monk

Extract from:

Quintus.  I’ll start off with a question that many of our readers may have thought about. Do you believe men are facing a spiritual crisis today? If so, why?

C.P.  Yes. Crisis is a Greek word, meaning “judgment.” It is the nature of Truth, that to come in contact with it is to face judgment; it is therefore no surprise to me, that our judgment rises to the level of a crisis, precisely when “non-judgmentalism” has become our only “truth.” The underlying sickness, is the heresy of “modernism,” (sometimes called “liberalism”), which, boiled down to its very nub, is the irrational assertion of autonomy via absolute, abstract “rights,” while one denies, doubts or despairs of knowing the necessary causes of rights’ existence.

“The modernist cares not whether something is Right and True; one only needs the “right” to do something without regard to what is Right and True. The core irrationality is to deny the Right in the name of “rights,” and even to believe that “rights” exist, if there is nothing Right. The modernist society inevitably develops irrationally, in accord with its premises.” ……………….

  1. Non-judgmentalism can be very Christian, IF it is done in the right context.

    If a Christian refuses to judge his fellow man because of absolute faith that God will judge at the Last Judgement, then non-judgemental tolerance is very Christian. “Forgive those who trespass against you” etc.

    Emphasis on the Last Judgement tends to steer one’s thinking away from humanistic “rights” of course – it doesn’t matter if John Locke or John Stuart Mill claim that you have the “right” to sin if you believe you’ll be put in a lake of fire for it.

    Ultimately, the world is going to need some better thinkers than Locke and Mill.

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
