Orthodoxy and Secularism
July 28, 2019
Our culture has stripped God out of so many spheres of life that life is sterile. We have isolated God to a little building or to our private, hidden beliefs, and no longer feel God’s presence. Religion has been stripped of the divine and transcendent and reduced to moralism and entertainment. The Church is God in our midst, the Body of Christ. It is the witness of God’s presence in every breath and action, and the only answer to the emptiness of secularism.
