Worldviews have morphed socially, politically, economically, demographically, and philosophically over the last fifty years. Absolute truth that once claimed to be confirmed by scientific theories is now overshadowed by unlimited amounts of tolerance and allegedly valid viewpoints. Secularization, globalization, and pluralism all contributed to gradually de-church our culture while creating a breach between the wealthy and the impoverished. Postmodernism brought with it the deceitfulness of relativism, the division of relations, and the destruction of righteousness. Many churches failed to bring extensive change and suffered identity crisis and irrelevance. Collins counsels, “There is nothing wrong with pursuing a vision for greatness… [But] the good-to-great companies continually refined the path to greatness with the brutal facts of reality.”
