Ausstieg aus dem Horizont der Moderne

The bottom line for our modernized world is that there is no truth; the bottom line for Christian consciousness is precisely the opposite. The Christian predisposition to believe in the kind of truth that is objective and public and that reflects ultimate reality cuts across the grain of what modernity considers plausible.

A Christian mind see truth as objective. It seeks to understand reality as it is in itself, not as it seems to the subject. The modern mind, no less than the pagan, finds this distinction at least difficult and probably impossible – because modernity admits of no exits, no escape from the darkness imposed by its diminished horizons of knowledge.
