But not in death. . .
Strangely, many refuse to see believe that this is a problem or one worth a reconsideration of the religious claims of life stronger than death and a clear conscience that has addressed sin and guilt and shame with something more than profound than a shrug of the shoulders. World wars tended to give pause to the idea of modernity and progressivism. Even great depressions and economic downturns begged people to look for a real source of security and hope. But if the churches have nothing to offer but a pale regurgitation of what culture has already said, the people have little choice but to make friends with death and to live in the moment without regret.
