Welcome

Christian culture and the illusion of neutrality

Christianity and Culture: it is no longer an uphill struggle to get people to pay attention. It is now open war, and all the pretenders to neutrality are unmasked. Everywhere there are publications and websites by church organizations newly forced to address the situation. But often these are lowest common denominator positions, genteel cogitations of cosseted professors, uncritical borrowings and similar attempts to evade the divisive and bitter truths that must be spoken. Too many church traditions are just wrong. Since the 1960s incisive voices (R.J. Rushdoony, Francis Schaeffer, numerous others) have warned us that culture is religion and culture endeavor is religious struggle. Much despised then by the ecclesiastical and educational establishments, who now denies their analysis? (unless they have joined the enemy) But the problem has always been that what these voices proposed in place of pluralism was too Christian—too many of the common ground ideas in the areas of politics, economics, art, etc. were discarded. All of these areas are now militantly anti-Christian, and equally clearly promoting antipodal values. Contra Mundum have been here twenty-five years, publishing a wide diversity of writers, but generally with antithetical not common ground views of culture. Most material is Spanish translations of popular articles that been contributed, but we have also tried to provide seminal books.
