    In a post-Christian world we find ourselves in the same place the disciples were after Christ arose. And we have the choice to either follow Him in His Spirit-filled mission to make disciples, or we we can pretend that our salvation in Him is enough. Choose wisely.

  18. A Christian world looks like the Kingdom of God fully active in all people groups, resulting in their redemption, restoration and completeness in Christ. It is a world where politics, economics, social mores, interpersonal relationships and interracial relationships are deeply imbued with the character of Christ. In other words, it is something we have not seen on a global scale yet.

  32. We see evidence of this all around us. Every denomination dwindling, marriages failing at astronomical rates, and we have become a vitriolic society with strong opinions often expressed hatefully. We are a world in need of God but don't even have the sense to cry out for him.

Post-Christianity involves increased persecutions, but on a subtle and highly biased level, rather than on an open and hateful level. This could mean an increase in the strength of Christians through testing, but tends to lead to an unpopularity of Christians…

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.

  81. A post-Christian world look much like a post-modern world. Truth is relative and everyone is searching for meaning in light of this. As Christians, we must show the world that truth is not relative, but is a person, namely Jesus Christ.

  117. 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.

  127. God's kingdom operates on two levels; the spiritual and the physical. The spiritual word, or Christ's kingdom is invisible and under Christ's direct rule. However, the physical, or kingdom of the world, has been entrusted to the governing bodies that God has ordained to restrain evil and protect the good. When the kingdom of the world is actively opposed to and warring against the kingdom of God, although Christ hasn't lost control in any way, it does make our task as believers more difficult in some ways. At the same time, it is in these times that light shines even more brightly in darkness. I don't think it's something to despair, but rather something to take advantage of, knowing that our King is truly the only king and has already been assured the final victory.

But look at the attendance in our churches today – so significantly less than they were a generation ago. Without knowing God's commands, and without having a fear of the Lord, almost anything goes.

But, is this not the opportunity we as his disciples today – the opportunity we are seeking; to have the opportunity to be His witness, share the hope we have even unto death, and as is promised suffer for His sake thereby exemplifying His presence in our lives all the more? May each of us who are called according to His purpose, walk in faith and show this post-Christian world that Christ is truly alive, and well, living in the hearts and lives of his disciples.

  155. A post-Christian world is exactly what our Lord told us to expect. “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours."
    John 15:18-20

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

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

  158. It looks very different to live in a post-christian world. We cannot enter into conversations about belief, right/wrong, who Jesus is, etc… expecting a common understanding any longer. It is not as easy to be a disciple of Jesus due to the aversion to those that would say there is an absolute Truth that then insinuates that someone is wrong in what they believe or what their lifestyle is. While all this is true, the problem is still the same, the solution is still the same, and the mission of God's people is the same. There is still the brokennes of sin in the world that demands God's righteousness satisfied in judgment. The solution is still the redemption that is found in Jesus and His vicarious suffering, substitutionary death, and the hope of His resurrection. The call for everyone of us as Christ followers is not simply to fight legislation to maintain the "christian" status quo but rather to live lives marked by Jesus as we hold out Truth and engage the world with love, respect, and boldness. Our salvation is not in legislation. Our blessing is not exhibited in our comfort. Our salvation is in Christ alone and we live for the glory of God alone.

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

  161. 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!

  162. A miserable, selfish existence where everyone looks after themselves. Wait…

    A Post-Christian World would look similar to what we have in many of our major cities. Christ has been neglected and man is attempting to pull himself up by his own bootstraps. Currently, the world is having to put forth effort to combat Christian moral values, but without a Christian worldview and morals, they will put their efforts into eradicating all forms of morality and any sense of right and wrong.

    This is very much a world that is becoming post-Christian. Moral relativism is Caesar's new religion with Entitlement the characteristic of the laity. You can worship science, the earth, SELF, or numerous other gods and spirits with little repercussion. But mention Jesus or His truths and you have become the new "leper". And worse, the persecution happening around the world, the actual lives being taken simply b/c they won't renounce the Lord, shows that the lord of this world is ramping up his game. Pray for their deliverance and that the Lord Jesus will return soon – that we might be found acceptable in our trust and faith (Gal 4).

  176. A post Christian world seems to me to be a world in which the predominant mode of thinking views Christianity as, at best, an outdated and irrelevant belief system, and at worst, an evil and hateful religious framework. The former is prominent, the latter is increasing at an alarming rate. A Christian worldview and perspective is increasingly being pushed out of and marginalized in Academia and the free market place of ideas. The more the culture turns to darkness, the greater its hatred for the light (John 3:19).

  180. 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.

  181. A post modern Christian looks like Martin Luther.

  182. A post Christian world looks like Christians striving to engage their neighbours in an atmosphere where unbelief and ignorance of the Bible are pervasive; evangelism at a fundamental level is imperative.

  187. It is a world that believes it is past the notion of God and the need of the cross. It looks for its values, morality and worth to anything but Christ, rapidly degrading, and destroying it self in the process

  189. 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.

    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.

  195. A post-Christian world wouldn't be like the days of Jesus or even early Rome. A pre-christian society (like Jesus' day) and a post-christian society will be significantly different. In a pre-christian society, the Christian message was new. It was different and challenging. People were slow to accept it, but still listened. In a post-Christian society the stories of our faith will be no more followed or believed as people today follow and believe the ancient Greek mythologies. Speaking about Jesus will be seen as primitive instead of new and exciting. The overall assumption would be that we have "evolved" beyond the days of religion. No one will have an ear to listen.
    Yet – Christ has established His church, "and the gates of hell will not prevail against it." God is in control.

  197. A post Christian world is one that has no regard for absolute truth. It's a place where followers of Christ become the mainstream minority. It's a place where persecution becomes prevalent inside the borders of the USA. I think in a lot of ways a post-Christian world looks like a pre-Christian world only darker yet. It's a place I never thought I would see but we're watching it come in to view with each passing day. In a post-Christian world pastors fear for their jobs not because of those within the church but because of the restraints the government puts on what we say from the pulpit. A post-Christian world is one where our (followers of Jesus) freedom of religious liberties is stripped away but those of other religions/cults are empowered even further.

    The beginnings of a post-Christian nation within the states looks just like today…

    A post-Christian world is a world infused with categories, words, and ethics that derive from a Christian even Judeo-Christian worldview. Yet these categories while remaining in place in the broader culture are emptied of their historic meanings and secularized; filled with new meanings based on the ever shifting sands of popular opinion and culture. We live a a world that post Christian, built as Van Til says, on "borrowed capital".

  201. 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.

  202. The worldview of the west is no longer rooted in a Christian understanding. It is meaningless for me to say "Jesus died for your sins" because most people don't understand the basis of substitutiary atonement, or a need for a savior at all. There has all but ceased to be a fear of God, and even most "christians" today have a BFF understanding of Yahweh.

  206. What does a post Christian world look like? It looks like Acts, Romans etc. As christians we will have to relearn everything that we thought we knew about leadership, evangelism, discipleship and sacrifice. Our world has changed and is becoming more hostile toward Christianity because of the exclusive nature of the gospel. You will see fewer and fewer large group gatherings, smaller church buildings, as well as fewer full time pastors and staff. However this is not all gloom and doom. I believe that this could be the beginning of a true revival in our nation. I also believe that while the days ahead will be filled with challenges that American/Western Christians have never faced before that we have an opportunity to truly become salt and light in a bland and dark world.

    A post-Christian world looks, ultimately, exactly like the pre-Christian world. It is a world of sensuality and pride. While the approach we need to take to deal with the post-Christian world will differ from the approach that was needed to deal with the pre-Christian world, the divide is not as great as many believe. Apologetics was a critical part of the early Church, and it will need to be a critical part of the post-Christian world as well. The difference between then and now: then Christians knew to count the cost and to be willing to sacrifice. Now too many of us are comfortable and unwilling to step out. In the post-Christian world, that will change. True Christians will stand, and those unwilling to will be – in that sense – more honest. They will be honest enough to admit that they are not true followers of Christ, taking up their crosses.

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.

    A post-Christian world looks just the same as the previous. There's one thing that remains consistent throughout history and that is humanity.

  242. Steve DeNeefe says:

    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.

    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.

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

  250. 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!

  251. godless and like europe…

  252. Casey Dwyer says:

    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.

  253. 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.

    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.

  267. Tom Campbell says:

    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.

  268. 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.

  269. Matt Triplett says:

    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.

    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.

    New American Standard Bible: 1995 update. (1995). (Lk 17:26–37). LaHabra, CA: The Lockman Foundation.

  271. A post Christian world is a world that not only largely rejects Christian worldview, but also chooses to view Christianity as an outdated minority.

  272. There will always be Christians.

  273. 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.

  274. 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.

  275. 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.

  276. Apocalypse.

  277. Stephanie says:

    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.

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

  279. It looks like the Early Church

  280. Vincent Herzog says:

    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.”

  281. Anne-Marie Montgomery says:

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

  282. G.W. Hood says:

    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.

  283. 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.

  284. I’m not sure what the world would be like without the “SALT OF THE EARTH”

  285. Can’t be good for whoever is left here!

  286. A post Christian world will be marked by lawlessness and the characteristic of calling good evil and evil good.

  287. A world full of persecution, but much joy.

  288. Look around.

  289. A post world Christian scares me! I don’t know that the person actually exists…

  290. highly secular and assimilated

  291. Isn’t that the world we already live in?

  292. It would be scary!

  293. A different name for the same group of people we have always been trying to reach.

  294. Monique Kaput says:

    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.

  295. Dave Nobles says:

    Interesting comments

  296. Folks are truly disciples of Christ rather than religious pretenders.

  297. A post-Christian world is a pre-Christian world!

    Which means, the gospel is alive and on the brink of changing lives for eternity!

  298. Rick Ziesmer says:

    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.

  299. 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.

  300. Jesus is Lord!

  301. Samuel Lai says:

    It’ll be a terrible place!

  302. 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”. We’re still in this thing. :-)

  303. James Rhodes says:

    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.

  304. Dave Foshee says:

    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.

  305. 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.

  306. Jason Heme says:

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

  307. 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.

  308. 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!

  309. Jeremiah K. Garrett says:

    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.

  310. 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.

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

  312. Matt Dunn says:

    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.

  313. Kim H in GA says:

    It will probably be like the days of Noah: no respect for life, liberty, God or people in general.

  314. many churches lose focus on the gospel and mission, mass exodus from churches over time, need for new churches who preach the gospel

  315. Chester Chen says:

    It’s a wonderful power tool.

  316. Nate Johnstone says:

    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.

  317. John Olin says:

    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.

  318. Matthew George says:

    There is no post-Christian world. The world has been in rebellion against God since the fall.

  319. Andrew Davis says:

    No love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, or self control

  320. A world where everything is gray and nothing is black and white.

  321. Well, after rapture there a couple of bad things going on…

  322. A post-Christian world requires a reshaping of the evangelical consciousness.

  323. 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.’

  324. A post-Christian world looks a lot like the one we have now…

  325. pastor Shammah Anyalebechi says:

    There is none better than jesus . Therefore, the post- christain world is better than any other time, remember the Bible warned that we cannot say that the old days are better than today. Revelation is progressive

  326. 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.

  327. Dave Boettcher says:

    First, There is religious pluralism. Second, there is no absolute truth set by the highest authority, God. Unless, of course, the truth is yours which makes it absolute. Therefore, self is God.

  328. Melinda Clark says:

    A culture with no absolutes or moral reasoning, where every individual lives under his own rules for his own purposes.

  329. He is Risen!

  330. AMEN

  331. Jonathan Perrott says:

    A world without Christ and His Church results in the disappearance of all absolute standards. That which is evil will be called good, and sin will be rampant, with everything man doing what is right in his own eyes.

  332. Vera Jolly says:

    It will be the world were people pertents to be a Christian it will be sad thst God would be out of the pic.

  333. Mike Adant says:

    Just like Jesus said it would…

  334. I love Jesus!!!

  335. It is a world that despises God and HIs TRuth and loves self.

  336. Victoria Williams says:

    Without Jesus we are/have nothing.

  337. 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.

  338. It will look like the 1st century, and we’re well on our way. We would do well to study history and read the early saints.

  339. A post-Christian world is one where truth is relative, all world-views are equal and believing in an absolute, transcendent truth is evil.

  340. 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…

  341. A world where Christian faith is so marginalized that there is no legitimation to have it present as voice in the public square

  342. How would we act differently if we knew Christ’s return was imminent? We actually should be acting like that always!

  343. Deneise Bircheat says:

    A lot like Sodom and Gomorrah.

  344. LaTanya Coleman says:

    Love God and not the world. Yes?

  345. Unfortunately, a post Christian world is a world where anything goes. It will be a world in which Christians even in the US are persecuted and freedom of religion is almost non existent.

  346. Utter joy, peace and contentment in the presence of our Lord!

  347. Post-Christian world is the end times, which is now.

  348. It looks like today’s world.

  349. Trish F says:

    Sadly we are already living in a post Christian world. When children are forbidden to sing about Jesus, shopkeepers can’t wish a customer Merry Christmas and Christians are beheaded in Syria by state sanctioned rebels. It is clear that there is a battle afoot.

  350. matthew Alaniz says:

    It will look like present day europe

  351. Mary M. says:

    I have read what others posted, but I am not sure about what a Post Christians world looks like. I do think Christianity has declined. Many things that were considered wrong when I was a child are accepted as normal everyday things by many people today. Also,Church attendance has declined in many places.

  352. David Yang says:

    It would look like any of the countries that don’t have Christians.

  353. Vilma Pacheco says:

    Looks like we are already living in it!!!!!!

  354. A post-Christian culture might, we can pray, look like a chance for the Church to be faithful to its Lord and shed the baggage of Christendom.

  355. chaos

  356. Look around….

  357. Barrie Brown says:

    Sodom and Gomorrah or any other city in America today!

  358. There is no “Post-Christian” world. God is. Christ is. There is nothing and can be nothing without Him.

  359. It would look allot like today’s world.

  360. Cristy S says:

    A post-Christian culture looks like a mission field for those who still believe.

  361. A post-Christian world look hopeless.

  362. I think that we are already living in a post-Christian world, so I guess it looks a lot like this.

  363. Much like the book of Judges. “everyone did what was right in their own sight”

  364. Mike Kaylani says:

    A post-Christian world will result in a stronger church.

  365. A post-Christian world looks like the enlightenment (or pre-flood); everyone does what is right in his own eyes and resists the concept of Truth.

  366. John D. DeWit says:

    Christians must accept that in this post – modern world, each disciple must share the gifts given him or her to “everyone”, and always to be led and empowered by the Holy Spirit!

  367. Seth McGee says:

    The world has never been a truly Christian world. While the acceptance of Christian morals and ascent to Christian truth will wax and wane, we are not of this world but of a kingdom that turns the world upside down.

  368. A post Christian world will not come to pass. Christ will return in the second advent and set up the millennial kingdom. I am a classic pre millennialist, so I believe believers will endure the tribulation if they are on the earth in those days. There will not be a time of post Christianity in the earth.

  369. Curtis Aubry says:

    Why do you say it is post christian?

  370. John Fowler says:

    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.

  371. Mark Henzler says:

    A society that looses the moorings of ethics and values. The basis of ethics becomes democracy – 51+%

  372. Michael Warnick says:

    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.

  373. Aaron Wetzel says:

    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.

  374. Mike Warnick says:

    The only way it would be post Christian is if all the Christians and the Holy Spirit were removed from the earth.

  375. Gary Heinemann says:

    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.

  376. A world devoid of Christian influence; Lord Jesus, let us not be idle and allow such to take place!

  377. 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.

  378. Rory Windell says:

    So looking forward to see who wins this.

  379. Lorne Tkaczyk says:

    What does a post Christian world look like? 2 Timothy 3:1-4:5 and the first part of Revelation just before the return of Christ to judge the world.

  380. A post Christian world looks a lot like Australia at the moment!

  381. I think a post-Christian world would consist of much more manifest hatred. Much more persecution in developed countries for believers. Special out pouring of the Holy Spirit on the Church to not only stand firm in the faith but to propagate faith in Christ.

  382. Justus P. says:

    A post-Christian world is one which has an improper view of God, of Christ, of salvation, and especially of Scripture. Scripture is not just not inerrant, but it’s not sufficient either, in today culture

  383. Kyle Kwitowski says:

    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.

  384. The race is not to the swift
    or the battle to the strong,
    nor does food come to the wise
    or wealth to the brilliant
    or favor to the learned;
    but time and chance happen to them all.
    Ecclesiastes 9:11-12

  385. Brian Gauthier says:

    Yahweh is God. satan is god of this age. this world will always seek to be ‘post-Christian’… this world will fail for Christ is risen and the holy spirit was given. As Jesus prayed … ‘thy kingdom com, thy will be done, on earth’. Yahweh’s Word will be obeyed on this earth when Messiah returns. Until then, be instant, in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

  386. Troy Leonard says:

    This is truly the best bible for your computer and tablet with so many resources and in depth study you can never go wrong with studying God’s word to the fullest.
    Thank You

  387. HanSung Hong says:

    Post Christian era Christians – purer and wiser in life and mission till we see the face of the Lord!

    Serving the Lord faithfully by loving one another. Standing firm in this shaky world. Continually leading people to Christ and help, support, and encourage them to be dedicated followers of Jesus Christ through persoanl, relational, missional, structural, and cultural renewal.

  388. A post Christian world is where the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.

  389. Jesus said ‘They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.’ (John 17:16). It is a dangerous fallacy to think that the world has ever been Christian. Dangerous because if we come to think we belong in the world we lose our prophetic voice of the gospel to the world.

  390. Barbara Rivera says:

    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.

  391. I think it would be man doing what is good in his own sight! Evil in his heart continually ….

  392. Michele says:

    I simply want to be equipped through the word of God for what will come in the present day!

  393. Bruce R says:

    A world where Satan is trying his darndest to divert people from The Way – where Jesus is needed more than ever!

  394. Jonathan says:

    I am so looking forward to the Ligonier Conference! The topic is both intriguing and relevant to our time. 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.

  398. 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.

  399. 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.

  402. Dorrie Turner says:

    It would be a steady rise to the end of all. The world has to harmonize with the changing needs of peace, respect for fellow man, adaptation to new science, saving the planet’s natural resources and coexist with animals to survive. And that includes kindness and respect for race, religion, and lifestyle.
