A relativistic West trying to defend itself…

Isn’t it interesting that the last twenty years of education have focused on sensitivity training and cross-cultural understanding, while the academy has focused its efforts on relativism and an anti-Christian curriculum? Witness now a relativistic West trying to defend itself with a misguided, absolutist, non-Christian worldview (Islam). Scholars thought they were evicting the Christian faith as to give themselves center-stage. They have run from the arms of a “Lion” into the arms of a “Bear” that will not allow them their own relativistic privileges. The Christian faith looks better and better all the time, if for no other reason than that the courtesy of disbelief is granted. That grace Islam seems incapable of offering even to its own people.

Ravi Zacharias, from RZIM letter dated February, 2006
