Post-Modern Religion


Post-Modern religion is NOT an attempt to banish other religions, rather it is critically considering orthodox assumptions. Post-Modern interpretation of religion has an emphasis on the fact that religion and religious truth is very individualistic and subjective. The individual is the focus and strength of post-modern religion and they attempt to weaken groups and institutions. Post-Modern religion is a consideration that there are no universal religious truths and laws. Reality is simply created by history, society and culture with regards to the individual.

A Postmodern religion can be non-dogmatic, syncretic, eclectic, draws from various faiths and traditions and challenges the notion of absolute truths. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postmodern_religion)
