Christian Faith is No Good Unless It's True!

Professor Douglas Groothuis of Culture Watch: Thoughts of a Constructive Curmudgeon has a post arguing primarily that Christianity is incompatible with postmodernism (I would have thought this point was obvious, but apparently not). I wanted to post a link to it here because Professor Groothuis spends some time arguing for a point much-belabored on this blog and in my life: Christian faith is no good unless its content is true. He even cites 1 Corinthians 15, as I often do. If you take away one point from Professor Groothuis's writing or mine, let it be this: in order for Christian faith to be valuable, in order for Christianity to be meaningful, there must be such a thing as the Absolute Truth, and the central claims of Christianity, about the identity, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, must belong to it. If this is not so then, as Paul would say (in the King James Version), "our faith is in vain."
