Christianity will survive, after all, Jesus has prophecised it: 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it.” (Mt. 16:18) Although, how it will survive is far more vital then what even some Christians stress an importance. First off, I would even say Zoroastrianism still exists, but at the same time their not converting new followers at a very successful rate and not influential in the world. Christendom with its cultural influence and institutions does do a vital a good in the world. The Catholic Church donates more money to the poor than any entity in the world. However, what happens when Christendom no longer exists?
In the United States, we are already seeing that the Relativists are forcing Christians to disobey their moral conscience to be able to have a public life– a job. When I taught school, I am reminded of the 1977 Soviet Constitution, which barred Christians from evangelizing their faith. When a student asks me, “What is the purpose of life?” I can’t answer the question. During the Obama administration, Gender theory had been promoted in the Public schools as the bathrooms are open to everyone.
Cardinal Sarah retorts such promotions, “I am worried about the way in which States and international organizations are trying to impose by any means, often rapidly, the so-called deconstructive philosophy of gender…
I observe an attempt by some influential structures to make homosexuality the cornerstone of a new global ethic…I fear that homosexual persons will be the first victims of such political excesses.” (God or Nothing, 2015, 164)
How has this become possible?
Cardinal Sarah explains, “In a relativistic system, all ways are possible…Modern relativism goes so far as to claim that it is the embodiment of liberty. In this sense, liberty becomes the aggressive obligation to believe that there is no higher truth…each individual can control his own moral, philosophical, and religious views…a world that is somewhat reminiscent of the ancient pagan religions.” ( God or Nothing, 2015, 181.)
