Baptist leader: Critical battle involves absolute truth vs. ‘postmodernism’

From Allie Martin and One News Now.

“The president of the largest seminary in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) says it’s vital that the denomination continue going against the tide of postmodernism.

Dr. Paige Patterson is president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and also a former president of the SBC. He contends that unless Christians stand against postmodernism — which says there is no absolute truth — society will face a moral meltdown.

“You can see that in an author like B.F. Skinner, the Harvard behaviorist, who in his book Beyond Freedom and Dignity basically argued that since there was no God, that ‘right’ was just social convention,” says Patterson. “There is a great need for some to swim against the postmodern tide and say [that indeed] there is such a thing as absolute truth — and it grows directly out of the person of God Himself.”
