Within Nazarene conversations, I have observed that individualism is frequently cited as a prevailing philosophy or worldview that has an adversarial relationship with the Kingdom. I have lately been wondering why exactly that is the case.
So I offer these three questions:
1. Is individualism really the adversary (satan) of all that the Kingdom stands for?
2. Given the fact that selfishness is nearly as old as the human experience, is it accurate to refer to individualism and selfishness interchangeably?
3. Industrialized contemporary society is individualistic. (whatever that means) What can we do about it?
