1. What is Postmodernism? The development of Modernism from Greek philosophy to the Enlightenment - human reason aided by scientific exploration the basis for absolute truth - Darwinism and the denial of a Creator God - World Wars and ruthless dictatorship - Postmodernism born out of disillusionment as Modernism holds no real answers. Postmodernism essentially scepticism, proposes the idea that truth cannot be known. The essential elements of Postmodernism: a) Relativism and pluralism b) Consumerism c) Political correctness
2. How Postmodernism affects our society. Some examples: in personal conversation; moral principles; political truthfulness. Postmodernism which at first affected the arts in breaking all the norms of beauty and order now further infiltrates many aspects of our society.
3. Our response to Postmodernism. It's not new but a way of justifying rebellion against God - it's an absurd contradiction and its response to moral questions and true/false religion wholly inconsistent - Christians must confront the absurdity of it on every hand as it makes inroads into the family, the state and the church.

Great Sermon! Thank you for standing for the truth alone Rev. Silversides!

Fascinating comparison What's really fascinating is to compare this presentation to the American pastor Duane Farley's series on postmodernism, because the two sides of the ocean "deconstruct" postmodernism in two radically different ways. That's what postmodernism is about, different perspectives, and the two approaches to it illustrate this graphically. (If you're new to postmodernism, Pastor Dominic Smart also has a great primer on sermonaudio.)

A Major Demonic Deception And Delusion In Our Day This sermon contains excellent insights into the Devil's methodology for the deception of modern (Humanistic) man, societies and even "churches." Also included is the biblical remedy to these specific demonic lies. To further lay the axe at the root (Matthew 3:10) of Postmodern and Humanistic folly and heresy, as it manifests itself in individuals, families, churches and the state (civil government, morality and law), see the free MP3 "The First Commandment: Exposing the Idolatry of Arminianism, Roman Catholicism, Cults, Judaism, Islam, Humanism, Materialism, etc.," at http://www.sermonaudio.com/ser moninfo.asp?SID=9260511205 .
