      In a pluralistic culture, this is especially important. Pluralism is the idea that there are several perspectives about God or reality, each is true for the person who believes it, and no one should judge that a different perspective is wrong. Pluralism underwrites the statement at . The Gospel is exclusive because it is about only one Person and two historical events (1 Cor. ). It reveals the good news of man's redemption, which was accomplished by the eternal Son of God incarnate, through His atoning sacrificial death and glorious resurrection from the dead. The Gospel is a unique and eternal message (Rev. ).

    In this book Tracy is not ‘doing’ systematic theology, but describing what systematic theology is and should be, its task and methods, its criteria of adequacy, its place within the total theological enterprise, and its place in a pluralistic culture. This last consideration really sets the agenda. Cultural pluralism is a term used when smaller groups within a larger society maintain their unique cultural identities, whereby their values and practices are accepted by the dominant culture, provided such are consistent with the laws and values of the wider society. As a sociological term, the definition and description of cultural pluralism has evolved over time.

    Philosopher Diogenes Allen connects pluralism with the crisis of the secular mentality: “Much of the distress concerning pluralism and relativism which is voiced today springs from a crisis in the secular mentality of modern western culture.” In the middle of such pluralistic society people try to answer the question – what is the truth?   Biblical Preaching in a Pluralistic Culture. This article appeared in Preaching Journal this month and is also, Pluralism never stopped the Good News of liberating human beings in bondage by giving them the truth of our Creator, our Sin and need of atonement and of new life, and of a Redeemer, Jesus Christ, the only name by which men may be.

Maintaining my ministry to people of a pluralistic culture requires me to preach in a way that neither forsakes the truth of Christianity nor needlessly alienates those raised to assume a plurality of religions.

One of a kind. I don't directly make the naked claim "Christianity is a superior religion," and I certainly don't malign other faiths. This article is adapted from the conclusion of E. Stanley Jones and Sharing the Good News in a Pluralistic Society (General Board of Higher Education and Ministry, ) F.

The difference in cultural pluralism can be observed between homogeneous societies like Israel, Japan, South Korea which have only one dominant culture and hence no need to accommodate other cultures and heterogeneous societies like United States of America, India, United Kingdom, etc.

However, while a lot of societies are heterogeneous i.e. they have multiple cultures, that does not. And the truth of the Gospel is where the hope of humanity lies. The Gospel as Truth Revisited Newbigin has demonstrated a hermeneutic of truth relevant to the contextual situations of his time.

In short, pluralism is an enemy to truth. Newbigin replaced the truth of human rationality by the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

It is said we live in a post-truth society. Truth has so often been abused that society is fleeing from truth and adopting a pluralism that assures us 'All truths are equally valid.' Does that include the claim that all truths are not equally valid. That's how quickly pluralism runs into incoherence.

So, why does it persist; why is it growing. 1 Roger Scruton, Modern Philosophy: An Introduction and Survey (London: Mandarin, ), 2 The ideology of pluralism about truth, or being a pluralist about truth, is not to be confused with the reality of a pluralistic society (that is, a society that includes people of diverse beliefs).

3 Compare Romans “If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart. () The entire premise of the book is the exclusivity of divine truth in a pluralistic society.

Yet, oddly enough, the book ends with the clarification that Newbigin does not apply that same exclusivity to the preached truth. In other words, Newbigin is a committed epistemological exclusivist.

It is better to speak the truth then not to How do we reach people with the gospel in a pluralistic culture that believes “all the Crossway Books, Smith, James K. How (Not) to. A classic work which I'm embarrassed to be reading just now. Newbigin's book is a treatise on understanding and living Christianity in an age of pluralism, and his primary argument is that the Christian faith is both contextual and relatively understood as well as universal and intended as truth for all/5(88).

A pluralistic society provides a unique opportunity to learn from other religions and ethnic groups. Truth is everywhere: scientific truth, philosophical and folk wisdom, truth in non-Christian religions. Truth abounds. Actions Speak Louder Than Words. In a pluralistic world, the emphasis should be on deeds rather than words.

Yet, for Wesley, love matters most regarding religious others, especially love arising from the heart (our affective center) rather than from the head (our cognitive processes).

One of Wesley's most-oft-quoted texts was the phrase from Eph."speaking the truth in love.". The exclusive claims of biblical Christianity are not welcome to many in our religiously pluralistic and morally relativistic culture.
