postmodern truth 3.0 the intuitive skinny response

IS

is
it true
that postmodern people
do not believe in
absolute truth?
and if so
why cant we
find any real-life people
who fit this description?
and if there are none
but only straw men?
then who
is
our
enemy?
because
if we cant find an enemy
(where are all those atheists
when we need them?)
how will ministries
raise money?
or
even worse
if postmodern
people
are
actually
MORE open
to the story of God
than people
thought
then
why have
our churches failed so miserably
to attract them?
and
whose job is it
to communicate the gospel
THEIR JOB to understand
or OUR JOB to create
understanding?
and
therefore
does THE CHURCH
need
to change
the way it is
doing things?
but then
if
transition
means change
and change brings loss
and nobody likes to lose anything then
it may be easier
for the church
to just point the finger
at the emerging generation
and say that we failed
in the
Great Commission
and it is all your fault for
not holding to the paradigm
that has worked for our fathers
we have good news
for modern man
but not for you
sorry
if you can change
the way you process information
then we have a message
from God
for you
for
apparently
either God is not able
to speak to you in
your language
or
we
the church
need to go back
to the drawing board
and yet if we are honest
we have too much investment
in our drawing board
to rethink it
in todays
world
unless
of course
we begin to believe
that the story of God
is already making sense
to postmodern people who see
truth personified in The One Absolute
He Who Can Be Trusted
He Who Is
Is Truth
Is Way
He is
Life
