Maranatha wants to add our voices to those who are expressing their sorrow over the deaths of Chad and Courtney Phelps, and Tonya Weindorf from Colonial Hills Baptist Church.

Postmodernism 3 – Characteristics

Postmodernism 3 – Characteristics

Gene Veith identifies a series of characteristics held by most postmodernism. Social Constructivism. Meaning, morality and truth do not exist objectively.
