Ken Myers is the author of All God’s Children & Blue Sued Shoes as well as the host and producer of the Mars hill Audio Journal. In a recent interview with Marvin Olasky of World Magazine he talks of America’s cultural heart attack.
Myers says, “We believe in nothingness—that is, we believe that anterior to our choosing, to our wills, there’s nothing to guide our wills. So sheer willing, the sovereignty of the individual itself, is the ultimate reality. In the vocabulary of sexual preference like that of the pro-choice movement, choosing is the ultimate reality, and nothing guides our choosing.”
Choosing means nothing if there is not some basic standard beyond ourselves for the choices we make. That is one reason choosing Jesus Christ is so beneficial. There is a reality of a savior beyond just our choosing. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
