A few years ago, the Oxford Dictionary selected ‘post-truth’ as its word of the year. We live in a world where today objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion about what is true than appeals to emotion and personal opinions. This move into subjective beliefs is also happening with Christian beliefs. We see historical beliefs about Jesus, the gospel, and critical theological doctrines being shaped more and more out of personal feelings and opinions than by profoundly studying the whole of Scripture as our source of truth and guidance.
