Postmodernism Isn’t All Wrong.

We protestants don’t need a full-throated rejection of postmodernism.
Postmodernism, as the term implies, is “over modernism.” Well Amen to that. Who liked modernism? Do we really see Biblical warrant for an unbiased, unlimited rationality belonging to the human race? That’s a failure to see our sin.
Postmodernism is right: sin makes communication impossible, or at least highly unlikely. We’re not going to figure God out, as if we could.
All this is right and good. Unless.
Unless we have the Holy Spirit. Unless God communicates, and not only speaks His word, but illumines our hearts to hear and understand.
The Bible says Amen to the law of postmodernism: “Yes, and amen. You are hopeless to understand anything, let alone the Almighty, on your own.” But it also has a gospel: We are given the Helper, the Counselor, the One who comes alongside us to infiltrate our minds with what is true.
Postmodernism is just pre-Holy Spiritism.
