A Chat with Ravi and “is America abandoning God?”

The Spurious Glitter of Pantheism, Part 4 of 4

Ravi Zacharias concludes his look at the rise of Eastern religion in the West. When did it start, and where will it take us?

In this series, and I only heard the fourth part, he brings home the idea of the introduction of Hinduism along with what has happened in the Western world. In part 4, he uses the precepts of Hinduism to exemplify the effects on western culture. The point here is not cause and effect but the parallel affects the ideas have had on western society.

This link downloads mp3. At least try to listen to the beginning.

For instance, he demonstrates the motive for introducing it was by “touching a nerve”. He used popular western criticism, which worked its will. I cannot say the philosopher or teacher’s name, but it was over 100 years ago. Its is worth listening to the way Ravi approaches it as an example.

The below video is a different interview Ravi did on:

“Is America Abandoning God?”

… from Pascal , to Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, to the media and Dawkins.

“Flirting with the total decimation of our culture”
