- Threats to Plurality from Secularism

- No Other Gods
"Secularism wants religious practice, especially Christian practice, banished to a private world of feelings and attitudes, while at the same time the realm of the public is to be expanded to include every aspect of one's life. The earlier secularist appearance of tolerance toward religion is now seen to have been a sham.".... "Christianity is based not simply on experience, tradition, inherited wisdom, and reason, but on God's self-disclosure in history.".... "Faith is not something that is added to knowing: it is a constitutive part of the act of knowing God."
- How to Think About Secularism
"The absolutely worst way to respond to the challenge of secularism is to adapt to secular standards in language, thought,
and way of life. If members of a secularist society turn to religion at all, they do so because they are looking for something other than what that culture already provides. It is counterproductive to offer them religion in a secular mode that is carefully
trimmed in order not to offend their secular sensibilities."

- Worship -
To worship God is to ascribe worth to him. It is an activity distinct from
teaching, and from fellowship, and from witnessing,
and from sharing. It is an act, not an experience. We come to church
primarily to do something, not to receive something,
although of course in the ancient worship of the Church we do indeed
receive God himself, under the sacramental species of
Bread and Wine. But our task in worship is to offer the oblation of
ourselves and our adoration at the Sapphire Throne.
