The Most Pressing Need For Reform

Nancy Pearcey

Last week I said there is no secular subject taught at the University of Washington. This may be a "far out" idea for some. If you're wondering about the biblical basis for such thinking, I recommend Nancy Pearcey's book, Total Truth.

Several years ago, I did a telephone interview with Dr. Pearcey, in which she elaborated on the problem of what she calls the "sacred-secular distinction." This "distinction" is commonly held among Christians and non-Christians, and it is a distinction worth deeply re-thinking.

Holding on to the sacred-secular distinction derails God's full intention for believers in this world. Getting rid of this distinction may be the most pressing need for reform in the Church today. I say this because if this human-centered perspective can be exchanged for a wholistic biblical view, it would go a long way toward addressing a host of other problems plaguing the Church today.
