With so much of our world in seeming flux, decay and upheaval, it is becoming popular to ask if we are witnessing the death of the world we always knew.

Why do our cultures and institutions pursue relentless ‘change’ with such zeal? Why are we redefining language and logic to support subjective views?

Are we destined for a societal train wreck?

Senior Pastor of Berwick Church of Christ, Braam Botha, discusses ethics, homosexuality, egoism, utilitarianism, government, conflict and morality in this 90 min interview.
