This Week's White Horse Inn

The End of Secularism

Secularists have argued for many years that religion is an entirely private matter that should not inform public life and policy decisions. But what about secularism itself? Is it really a neutral position itself? On this edition of the White Horse Inn the hosts discuss these issues with Hunter Baker, author of The End of Secularism.

Excellent discussion on the nature of secularism as that which shuts out all competing views of reality. This helped me to clarify some confusion I have with two-kingdom theology and thinking that this means that Christians should keep quiet about their theological convictions in the public square. This is not the case- Luther and Calvin both expected the state to do what it was supposed to do (promote righteousness and justice and protect its citizens from evil both within its borders and without) and often called the state back to its main purpose. The Church does have to realize though that it is one voice among many differing views of reality in the culture but it does not have to keep its mouth closed and keep its religion private. The Church is still obligated to give testimony to the objective truths of its view of reality in the public square. How it does this though is where the confusion lies- I wish they would have gone into how they thought the religious right failed in this regard. They touched on it but did not go into that issue very deeply.
