    I think it will look a lot like the world of early (pre-300s) Christianity.

  3. Jason March 24, 2014 at 1:00 pm #

    A world where Christian truth claims have fallen out of society’s plausibility structures.

  4. Sylvia March 24, 2014 at 4:30 pm #

    I choose to believe there would still be believers standing for the Word of God and His Authority

  5. Michael March 24, 2014 at 6:10 pm #

    I find hope in the words of the king of Babylon who came to his senses saying “Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble.” No matter how “post”-anything the world becomes God is still on the throne.

  6. Perry March 24, 2014 at 6:44 pm #

    Like R.C. Sproul’s books

    The Post-Christian world is still revealing itself.

    Depraved and devoid of Salt and Light.

  9. Mark Culton March 25, 2014 at 3:51 am #

    In a Post Christian world, Christians can no longer be nominal and complacent. Our true colors must shine – whether we really are committed disciples of Christ our not. It is not culturally popular, so will we be committed?

  10. Gavin March 25, 2014 at 3:56 am #

    I would say a lot like modern-day Europe.

  11. nick March 25, 2014 at 4:00 am #

    A world like “in days of Noah” , with no interest in God, his word or the coming judgment.

  12. Tyler van der Schaaf March 25, 2014 at 4:00 am #

    It would look like chaos. But, Jesus is Lord.

  13. Grant Alcorn March 25, 2014 at 4:09 am #

    The world will and already does resemble the 1st century in that Christianity is just one choice amongst many options in a myraid of religious choices. And that should be a good thing as it will force the Church to depend more upon God and less upon ourselves.

  15. Anthony March 25, 2014 at 4:57 am #

    Aren’t we looking at what a post-Christian world looks like in Europe and most large cities in America? Naturalism breeding nihilism and/or existentialism and nothing sacred except the will of the individual to do what pleases them.

  16. James March 25, 2014 at 5:01 am #

    It would look like a world where truth is relative to the individual, right and wrong are decided by the individual and what is lifted up as worthy of worship is the accomplishments of the individual. In short, when Jesus Christ is not recognized as God, we replace Him with ourselves.

  17. James March 25, 2014 at 5:01 am #

  18. Drew March 25, 2014 at 5:06 am #

    I imagine that it would entail a greater focus on physical science for the layperson and secular organizations having a greater influence through internet media. However we as Christians can combat this by staying relevant to cultural mediums and spreading the Gospel and its Truth to the entire world through any avenue available to us as a society.

  19. Linda March 25, 2014 at 5:11 am #

    God’s grace is sufficient for me.

    Yep

  21. Ben March 25, 2014 at 5:26 am #

    Probably what Jesus talked about in the Gospels: difficulty, turmoil, persecution, etc. The love of many will grow cold. However, I believe the church will be ultimately strengthened, refocused, and refined as a result of a post-Christian environment.

  22. Alex March 25, 2014 at 6:03 am #

    Post-Christian world looks the same. A world in need of Christ filled with people in the image of God grinding their teeth clinching their fist against their creator.

  23. Daniel March 25, 2014 at 6:07 am #

    “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.”

  24. Rob Culler March 25, 2014 at 6:14 am #

    I believe a post-Christian words is one in which the Word of God is no longer foundational.

  25. Lindsey March 25, 2014 at 6:18 am #

    Deceit, turmoil, abounding evil. Persecution of the few believers there are.

  26. Ryan March 25, 2014 at 6:19 am #

    Post-Christian world? Keep looking, and we will all see first hand. Our society has in many ways reached post-christendom,so those that follow us closely will not be far behind. There will be a few that continue to stand up, and many will be martyred for their faith. The good news is that Jesus will come, and He is victorious!

  27. Roberto Carmona March 25, 2014 at 6:22 am #

    Like a enclosed community

  28. Big Joe March 25, 2014 at 6:24 am #

    A Post-Christian world will involve much heavier persecution of Christians, and a larger falling-off of those who are unable to maintain faith in God’s preserving power and saving grace.

  29. Erwin March 25, 2014 at 6:24 am #

    a post-christian world is one in which Christian beliefs have been left behind but some values still remain and are being rejected?

  30. Vic Stanley March 25, 2014 at 6:26 am #

    It looks like the Early Church

  31. Andrey March 25, 2014 at 6:30 am #

    There cannot be a post-Christian world. As there is no and there has not been a Christian world. Christ is always not from this world. This world has fallen and continues falling. A Christian in the world is inevitably separated from the world – by the commandments, by prayer and fasting, by his good deeds and Divine Mysteries. His future is not a post-Christian world to the age to come – the Heavenly Kingdom.

  32. Chris March 25, 2014 at 6:32 am #

    A post modern Christian looks like Martin Luther.

  33. Steve March 25, 2014 at 6:38 am #

    A cannot fathom a post-Christian world. Jesus is going to return and rule the Earth. Only after the 1,000 year reign can such a world even exist!

  34. Caitlin March 25, 2014 at 6:42 am #

    If this is asking what the world would be like after christians… like their impact on the world or a community after entry, it would be universal flourishing, seeking to be for the people and not against or apathetic to them. Seeking the glory of God through service to the hurting people of the world.

  35. Tim Arndt March 25, 2014 at 6:45 am #

    A post Christian world would be a sad one. As Athiest Scholar Dr. Will Provine would say, once God’s out of the picture there is no standard for morality, not meaning in life, and no free will. It would be a very sad world indeed.

  36. @jonwellman March 25, 2014 at 6:45 am #

    A world that relies on anything and everything other than God.

  37. Doug March 25, 2014 at 6:46 am #

    No clue

  38. Matthew March 25, 2014 at 6:52 am #

    A post Christian world will recognize the necessity for truth not as an absolute or objective truth like during the time of modernity, and not purely as an observable fact as during this period of scientific exploration, but as a perceivable and understandable reality that is bound by both experience, reason, and tradition, but more importantly wrapped up in the person of Truth (namely Christ). The empty tomb is the reality of the Christian message, the God-man dying on the cross, and recieving this truth in the Word preached. It is when truth received through Word becomes central that Christ will again be central, as the world of experience, anti-religion, and spiritualism grow in numbers, Christianity (the mustard seed) will continue to grow because she has truth, namely, Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.

    A post-Christian world looks much like our world today, especially and specifically Europe.

    • KStock March 26, 2014 at 4:31 am #

      Why “especially and specifically Europe”? Certainly Europe is post-Christian, but I think that the USA is as well, when I see the amount of self-help and positive thinking which is promoted as though it were Christianity. I’m thinking in particular of supposedly “Christian” books which describe how to lose weight, how to reorganize your kitchen and so forth.

  41. Ariel March 25, 2014 at 9:01 am #

    A Post-Christian world will look like Europe and Japan. There will be no moral compass or any authority on right and wrong behavior except for those who hold the power to make the laws. It will become that the morality of the strong determines what is right and wrong.

  42. Bill Altman March 25, 2014 at 9:03 am #

    All we have to do is look at the world of the Early Church, the “pre-Christian” world, to understand what the post-Christian world will look like. It will be a world that is full of both challenges and opportunities for the Gospel.

  43. Steve DeNeefe March 25, 2014 at 9:06 am #

    In a “post-Christian” world, everybody already thinks they know what Christianity is all about (whether they do or not), and they’ve decided it isn’t relevant to them. They believe it is just a bunch of mythology with self-help re-interpretations (and in some churches that’s all it is). I think we already live in a post-Christian world.

  44. michael_graham March 25, 2014 at 9:30 am #

    A post Christian world looks like the world we live in today. People running to-and-fro, thinking and doing what seems right in their own eyes. They are constantly suppressing the truth in unrighteousness and finding ways to pervert God’s standards revealed in his word. It looks like a world that we Christians need to SHINE in all the more… by God’s grace.

  45. Judson Adams March 25, 2014 at 9:43 am #

    A post Christian world is a world where christians have failed to fulfill the great comission

  46. Brian Watson March 25, 2014 at 10:06 am #

    A post-Christian world would smell rotten and look dark, because the salt and light are not present.

  47. Jenna Frazer March 25, 2014 at 10:12 am #

    A post christian world is like the church in the Book of Acts

  48. Elena Downey March 25, 2014 at 10:15 am #

    It would look much like our world now, desperately in need of a Savior!

  49. Nick Claxton March 25, 2014 at 10:17 am #

    We are already living in a post-Christian world.

    • Travis Edgerton March 25, 2014 at 3:31 pm #

      I’m pretty sure a post-Christian world looks exactly like the one we’re currently living in. Not that Christianity is on a decline at all… it just seems clear that Christianity as the prevailing social norm is over.

  50. Philip Palmer March 25, 2014 at 10:26 am #

    I think that it wouldn’t look too much different from contemporary Europe. Few ethical guidelines, low morals, and a permissive society.

  51. Andrea March 25, 2014 at 10:26 am #

    If a post-Christian world is defined as a culture in which Christian values are no longer part of its underpinnings, we’ll see more persecution of believers in the Truth, fearful people, tyrants and oppressed groups. It will be darker, sadder and more chaotic. But God, in His mercy, will continue calling His people out of darkness into His marvelous light! Praise God!

  52. Eduard March 25, 2014 at 10:37 am #

    godless and like europe…

  53. Casey Dwyer March 25, 2014 at 10:38 am #

    Living for Christ in a post-Christian world will look progressively more like living for Christ in the first-Century world: more persecution, yet at the same time more of a desire for spirituality than we saw say fifty years ago.

  54. Megan March 25, 2014 at 10:41 am #

    A post Christian world is full of sin and satan has won a respectable name – and those who still believe and strive to follow God’s word are fighting an uphill battle for evangelism.

  55. Joshua Jackson March 25, 2014 at 11:25 am #

    A post-Christian world looks like a world a lot like Sodom and Gomorrah.

  59. Greg Mills March 25, 2014 at 1:20 pm #

    A post Christian world is a world where the followers of Christ have an opportunity to be an authentic witness for Him. All luxuries and amenities have been removed and those that treasure Him above all else will have the opportunity to enjoy and glorify Him w/o the distraction of what our culture provides us. The genuine faith of those that treasure Him will be revealed.

  60. T.S. Francis March 25, 2014 at 1:21 pm #

    It will be a rebirth of new to many believers; giving path to infuse the dead and non-believers with the truth.

  61. Justin M. March 25, 2014 at 1:45 pm #

    It looks a lot like the early church. Arise and be awakened. Total surrender and trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Stand in Jesus in the New Covenant.

  62. David Barry March 25, 2014 at 2:58 pm #

    A post-christian world looks like Europe, and increasingly more, America. More and more the general public is completely unaware of the basic teachings of Christianity.

    A world without real hope.

  68. Tom Campbell March 25, 2014 at 6:39 pm #

    The post Christian world will look no other in the annals of history. A culture shaped by the principles of the Gospel found favor with a Father who honored those who honored His son. As nations and cultures, which once professed Christ, turn away so will God’s protective and benevolent hand. Having tasted the fruit of divine blessing due to our trust in God we can now expect His curse as we mock and reject Him.
    We do our nation, and indeed the world, a disservice when we preach only the reality of God’s love because there are also His attributes of justice and righteousness. It is highly unpopular to remind a skeptical populace that for every action there is a reaction and that the wrath of God is the inevitable consequence of rampant unbelief, shameless sin, and contempt for the price that Jesus paid to restore all men to God but it precisely this message which we need to deliver.

  69. Steve March 25, 2014 at 6:52 pm #

    A world where the majority of people don’t go to church, don’t believe in God, and don’t want to hear about Him anywhere.

  70. Matt Triplett March 25, 2014 at 8:27 pm #

    A post Christian world is a would that no longer accepts or pretends to accept the Christian world view. It’s a world that doesn’t believe The Bible is true.

    26  “And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:
    27  they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.
    28  “It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building;
    29  but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.
    30  “It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.
    31  “On that day, the one who is on the housetop and whose goods are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back.
    32  “Remember Lot’s wife.
    33  “Whoever seeks to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
    34  “I tell you, on that night there will be two in one bed; one will be taken and the other will be left.
    35  “There will be two women grinding at the same place; one will be taken and the other will be left.
    36  [“aTwo men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other will be left.”]
    37  And answering they *said to Him, “Where, Lord?” And He said to them, “Where the body is, there also the vultures will be gathered.”

    A chance for the faithful to really shine and the not so faithful to be exposed, for persecution to happen in the states and God be richly proclaimed by the actions and mouths of the Christians.

  75. Mack March 25, 2014 at 9:24 pm #

    A post Christian world is a world in which people have surface cultural knowledge of Christ. This knowledge is founded on social understandings and is not based on God’s Word. When a Christian speaks of Christ in this world they must be prepared to weed through the cultural mess with the Word to let God break through to a clouded and resistant hard heart.

  76. Hannah March 25, 2014 at 9:42 pm #

    The post-Christian world is the world we are living in…an extreme of the humanistic worldview. It’s existentialist, therefore hopeless. “Whatever is true for you is true for you; whatever is true for me is true for me.” It’s a confused world.

  77. James March 26, 2014 at 7:34 am #

    Apocalypse.

  78. Stephanie March 26, 2014 at 7:56 am #

    In order to answer this question, we have to understand what the definition of Post-Christianity is. According to Wikipedia, Post-Christianity is the decline of Christianity. So if that is the definition, then I would say that we are already living in a Post-Christian world. Christianity is already declining and becoming non-dominant.

  79. Timothy March 26, 2014 at 8:45 am #

    That is a misnomer. There is no such thing as a “post-Christian world”. The New Jerusalem is the closest thing to it.

  81. Vincent Herzog March 26, 2014 at 11:28 am #

    A post-Christian world looks schizophrenic and lost–given that it aspires to retain human rights, morality, free will, pure love after it has taken itself to have done away with the God who gives and grounds them–but is ripe for what Pope John Paul II called “the New Evangelization.”

  82. Anne-Marie Montgomery March 26, 2014 at 1:44 pm #

    What does a post-christian world look like? A lot like the world of the First Century Church did…

  83. G.W. Hood March 26, 2014 at 1:55 pm #

    The additional challenge for us in the Post-Christian age is that we are transitioning into it out of a Christian culture many of us grew up in. We have enjoyed the relative support of our society until now. We must learn to adjust, and we must be strengthened for what lies ahead.

  84. Emily March 26, 2014 at 2:28 pm #

    A post-Christian world looks like the one that we live in right now. A post-Christian world means that there is a decline in Christianity which is ultimately what our world is going through right now. Although it may not be immediately apparent in our small communities, taking a step back and looking at all of the events going on in the world, we can see that Christianity has declined greatly through the years and has the potential to continue to decline if we stand idly by and do nothing.

    I feel as though we are already at the point of living in a post Christian world. all there is, is death, destruction, evil, and people loving their sin. but whether they realize it or not, everyone who feels empty and has a longing in their soul, longs for God, without even understanding it.

  99. Rick Ziesmer March 27, 2014 at 12:13 pm #

    We are living it. It is a place where “evil is good and good is evil.” In our country the tables have turned to the point that to be a Christian is to be a second class citizen. We are told to leave our “christianity” at church and that an ungodly government knows what is better for us and our children. We are told that our faith and convictions should not govern our business decisions and that against those convictions we are to comply with society. There are a lot of similarities between the time Daniel lived and where we are today.

  100. Barbara March 27, 2014 at 6:51 pm #

    We are seeing and experiencing merely a “Preview” of a post-Christian world today. Sin is abounding more and more with universal acceptance and little or no remorse, regret, or shame. Many Christians “look the other way” and/or “cast a downward glance” at our own sins, seemingly ignoring our freedom from the bondage of sin secured by Jesus Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection on the cross. We are the Church, we have a Savior, and He is to be the Lord of our lives. Then we will have His power to share the gospel with the lost in this post-Christian world evolving before our very eyes.

    Jesus said His Church will overcome the Gates of hell. If there are Saints in the earth, they may be marginalized, but they’re not powerless; struck down, but not destroyed. I think then, that a “post-Christian world” is one that has no believers in Jesus Christ in it. We have to fight a lot in our society today, but I refuse to believe that any Saints left in the earth will be so without power that society can presume to call itself “post-Christ”.

    The evidence of a post-Christian world is all around us. Evil is everywhere in this world. Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only way to combat the evil around us.

    Post-Christian? How about Pre-Roman? Our culture most mirrors the culture of ancient Rome with its decadency, depravity and carnality. We are in the decline of Christianity in the US. However, other areas of the world are seeking Christ like never before.

    This is the time of the “Already-Not Yet!” We are in the Kingdom of God that this earth will see. So of course the Kingdom will come as the time approaches for the fully realized Kingdom of God to come. But this “Already” time of Christ’s resurrection and present Kingdom is His time to reach out and call those that are willing to accept the Kingdom of the Not Yet.

    We must truly get back to making Christlike disciples in all the nations! No matter where we are in the “Fall” of Christianity. For surely if this is the Fall, then it is even more important to bring in those that are ready.

  106. Jacob March 28, 2014 at 5:50 am #

    A post Christian world is the world we live in today. Christendom is dead and society as a whole no longer values what Christianity has to offer. This is the perfect time for true believers in Christ to set themselves apart through their love of God and their love of others. A post Christian world is the perfect environment for the spread of the gospel because many people no longer cling to the pretense of being a believer. Now it’s time for believers to be faithful in making much of the name of Jesus. As we follow him, we proclaim him, becoming disciple making disciples.

    A post-christian world would look like a Zompie Apocolypse. A lifeless world!

  108. Felipe March 28, 2014 at 7:22 am #

    Christianity is religion, a post-Chritianity word would looking like the world we live in now. Beyond the religion is the relationship with Christ, to let go of religion and focus on Christ would create a peaceful sense within self. However, the world around us is often rejecting the relationship with Christ causing pain and turmoil to be the focus of human existence. Post-Christianity world or a post-Christ world is and unfortunate state of being. We must direct our eyes to God acknowledging all he has given US and believing that we simply don’t deserve it but humbly accept the gift of life through him.

  109. Aislinn March 28, 2014 at 7:53 am #

    A world where God’s people have a renewed opportunity to show people what the Kingdom of Christ looks like! Without the barriers of across-the-board nominal acceptance of Jesus, the glory of the gospel of Christ can show through brilliantly because of its difference!

  110. Jeremiah K. Garrett March 28, 2014 at 8:01 am #

    I do not believe in a post-Christian world. We live in a Post-Christendom world, where the Church is not the central force of government. There is a significant opportunity for the Church to be what the Church was meant to be if we cease living with an illusion of Christendom while embracing the role of the Church per the Gospels and Acts.

  111. Phil March 28, 2014 at 8:26 am #

    I believe a post-Christian world will be a place where people flock to churches, and attendance will soar as pastors attempt to bring in revenue by tickling the ears of the lost. The “gospel” will be that there is no condemnation, period, for anybody, and hell is not to be worried about because an all-loving god loves us and has no expectations. The devil appears as an angel of light, and people will follow him in absence of the Holy Spirit’s gift of discernment among the churches. To a people who have been taught that there is no winning or losing, that people who are tolerant and nice are right, and that they are the culmination of random evolutionary advances…the truth of God’s Word (and the cross of Christ) is foolishness to those who are perishing…they will not seek the God of the bible – they will seek after what enables them to have a form of godliness, but they will deny the power of it. People will believe they are right and “old-fashioned” Christians were wrong.
    Unfortunately, that’s close to what it looks like now in many places – we Christians (myself included) need to stop telling the lost how to live life without giving them Jesus – we need to admit our own powerlessness to behave rightly without the power of an in-dwelling almighty Christ working in and through us to do God’s will. and entreat our father to enable us to speak His Word with boldness in our day.

    It would look a lot like the pre-Christian world of the 1st century

  113. Matt Dunn March 28, 2014 at 8:57 am #

    A Post _Christian world! Hmmm… not sure such a thing exists, since I don’t see how Jesus is going to run out of followers. However a Post-Christendom world is what we live in today… a mission field, where the Church is no longer the institution of power that it was in Christendom. This might be the best thing that has happened to the Church for many centuries. Finally, we are free to be the ‘ekklesia’ not just simply a charitable organization. In the Post Christendom world, we move from every man(woman) a priest to every man(woman) a reformer, bringing hope and love to a hoopeless and love-starved world.

  117. Nate Johnstone March 28, 2014 at 5:28 pm #

    Most responses here seem to think a post-Chrisitan world would look a lot like the 1st Century church … why? The 1st Century Roman world was not post-Christian, it was pre-Christian. Pre-Christian cultures are challenging because the teachings and lifestyle of Christianity are often strange … but post-Christian culture is MUCH more challenging, because people have “been there, done that.” “We tried Christianity, it didn’t help.” We live in a culture now that is slowly becoming inoculated against Christianity.

    A post-Chrisitan America would look a lot like Europe looks now, where those of faith are seen as unintelligent people with silly superstitions that science has “proven” false. Their moral viewpoints are seen as hateful and dangerous for society, and those in authority question whether they should even have the right to raise children in such a “hateful” environment.

  118. John Olin March 28, 2014 at 6:57 pm #

    A post-Christian world is a world where God is known and hopefully his believers are sharing the gospel with their words and their lives as much as possible because of they way the truth of the word of God has affected their own lives. All that to say, it would not be much different than what it is now. There has and always will be 3 groups of people: Those who love and accept Jesus as Christ, Those who are who just do not care, and Those who intentionally avoid anything to do with God. Christians should always be working harder to be obedient to the call of Christ, to know Christ, and loving the people around us whether they are believers or not.

  119. Matthew George March 28, 2014 at 7:10 pm #

    I think a Post-Christian world should begin to be obvious to us, we’re headed there if not already there, we need to look around us. God’s word is not respected, His people are not endured, morality is something that is matter-of-opinion, and His Word is compromised in every respect. The faithful will be the few, and we understand much more what it means to be a ‘pilgrim in another far off land.’

  127. JaLise March 30, 2014 at 1:37 am #

    I agree with most of you that post Christian world looks like it does now and even worse with persecution, turmoil, and more ungodliness as a result of people not submitting to the word of God spoken in the canon and confirmed in His world. Yet I can’t help feel like we may be the most intellectual Christians to exist, in the sense that we now more scripture and context and yet we live very distance lives from the heart of most canonical messages. Caring for the outcasted and abandoned, illuminating the world also instead of only lighting the church, loving the church and our siblings in the faith, remembering and identifying with the persecuted global church and simply being aware of the world around us and praying for it. I see this turn toward this happening with leaders and authors like John Piper, Francis Chan, David Platt, Micah Bourne, John Perkins, & the CCDA (Christian Community Development Association). I hope in Christ’s second coming and my faith is sustained in the reformation of the American and other (neo-liberal) capitalistic nations.

    The post-Christian world in which we’re living is one that once stood strong for the faith, but has become “lukewarm” as referred to in Revelation in regard to the Laodicean church. The post-Christian world has lsot its first love and deteriorated greatly, and will continue to do so until Christ returns and throughout the Tribulation.

  139. zanne April 2, 2014 at 1:59 pm #

    A post-Christian world is one where the standards and morals of Scripture are replaced by relativism and “anything-goes” thinking. What’s good for others is no longer important, only what I get out of something. Kinda like unions and Congress…

    A post Christian world will not come to pass. Christ will return in the second advent and set up the millennial kingdom.

  171. John Fowler April 17, 2014 at 8:38 am #

    We need to be opposed. The biggest thing blocking Christians from spreading the Gospel is having to easy of a time doing it. In countries where it is forbidden to preach about Jesus you find Christians who choose to be obedient to God and put their lives and freedom on the line for it. The BEST thing that could happen to Christianity is for it to be outlawed. Then we can see who truly believes. Jesus didn’t promise an easy life for Christians He promised persecution. Why should we want it to be easy when the very One who gave us the right to be called Christians told us it wouldn’t be easy.

    I think a post Christian culture is different than a post Christian world. A post Christian world would be a world with out any Christian influence. (For example, after the rapture.) A post Christian culture is where Christianity has no longer become the foundation of the society. There is still some influence of good in the society, but it is becoming less and less. I think we see the consequences in our country and the world today. We as Christians have to quit fighting among ourselves and fight the battle against Satin in the world today.

  174. Aaron Wetzel April 19, 2014 at 7:04 am #

    The only real “Post Christian” world is Hell. I don’t mean any offense by that, but if the kingdom of God is real, then redemption is happening and will always be happening until the “Post Christian” world is established.

    There are plenty of places in the world where the gospel is moving with amazing power. To call an era “Post Christian” is to consider some cultures as inferior and some cultures as elite. It’s all a crock.

  175. Mike Warnick April 19, 2014 at 8:17 pm #

    A post Christian world is a world changed. A world focused on the eternal and not the temporal. It is a world motivated by love – first and foremost love for God and second love for mankind. It is a world that has put on the mind of Christ becoming willfully obedient to the precepts of God even to the scarifice of self for others. It is a world of servants who have made their Master’s cause, to seek and save the lost, their own cause. It is a world of inner peace found in the contentment of simply doing god’s will, accepting that it id God who works to will and do His good pleasure in our lives. It is a world of thanfulness for even the smallest blessings we have.

  177. MikeB. April 22, 2014 at 6:19 am #

    That idea of Post-Christian would probably only apply to a few places in the world; most of the world has never been part of Christendom, so in many ways, much of the world remains as it was. So living as a believer in western society will more and more look like living in the rest of the world…we will face challenges at the basic levels, and won’t be able to assume common ideas; we will encounter more overt persecution; we will need to be sure our methods of communicating are simple, reproducible, and anticipating objections at a basic level. At the same time, we can be confident of seeing God work in the midst of our weakness and inability to rely on cultural values.

  184. Kyle Kwitowski April 28, 2014 at 9:45 am #

    A post-Christian world looks exactly the same as it has throughout time ever since the fall, when people turn away from God toward their own idols and desires. The world is a harvest ripe for God to do His work in redeeming us back to Him, through His workers. Nothing has changed between our present-day culture and the days of Christ himself. Only the form has changed in how sinful man’s own machinations of fulfilling the sinful desires of lust, pride and self-fulfillment. A post-Christian world is one which desperately needs the redeemed to reenter the war zone instead of being rescued and fleeing the fight. Salvation is not a gift meant to be kept to oneself, but to pass on to another.

    Our world is in need of a savior. God is holy and we are at odds with Him because of our sins. We need to believe on Jesus for forgiveness. Then, when God looks at us, He sees Christ’s righteousness Jesus is coming back one day for His own. Christian’s live in that hope.

Western Christians have for so many years enjoyed living in a society that was grounded in Christianity and Christian thinking and have received God’s blessing of peace and safety from persecution. With those days coming to an end, it will be so important to know how we as Western Christians can follow the example of our bothers and sisters throughout the world who are faithfully living and dying for the Lord.

    In many ways, we are living in a post-Christian world. Although there are still many who profess the name of Christ, we are in the minority which is shrinking daily. Of those who do profess Christ, many have embraced a liberal, worldly style of Christianity of which first century Christians knew nothing about. The love of many for true spirituality and sanctity has already grown cold. The world as a whole is more anti-Christian than at any time in our lifetimes. “Tolerance” is the new buzzword for anyone except born again, Bible-believing Christians. When Islamic militants, homosexuals, abortion supporters, and Constitution hating politicians are not only tolerated, but embraced, we have arrived at a post-Christian world. We must open our eyes and prepare for the persecution that lies ahead for all true believers.

  200. Michael Hansen May 29, 2014 at 8:35 am #

    A post Christian-World is not possible because Jesus has risen to the right hand of the father where he rules the world. Being under the Lordship of Christ the “world” can never be “post-Christian”. However, societies, like the US, can be post Christian. In fact America in many ways is post Christian due to its neglect of the Biblical teachings on the three institutions that make up any Christian society: family, church, state. Having disregarded the Biblical teachings in these three institutions the US is increasingly “post-Christian” and the results are increased hopelessness and angst, and individualism and relativism.
