We have an identity crisis in America.  People are trying to discover who they are, especially those from the younger generations.  In fact, some will spend large sums of money to discover themselves on self-awareness retreats.  With this phenomenon there’s been a rise in attention on psychology, gender, sexuality and identity politics.  Life has become subjective for many as their search is based on feelings and the flames of this model are being fanned by social media, politics and pop culture.    

Appearing on Crosstalk to discuss this issue was Martyn Iles.  Martyn is an Australian-born lawyer, commentator, and the Executive CEO of Answers in Genesis, home to the highly acclaimed Creation Museum and the world-renowned Ark Encounter. Previously, Martyn was the co-founder of a not-for-profit law firm specializing in religious freedom cases.  He also led one of Australia’s largest grassroots political movements through a period of remarkable growth.  He’s author of the newly released book, Who Am I? Solving the Identity Puzzle.

Martyn believes the genesis of this identity crisis starts with the fact that for some their ultimate authority has changed.  It used to be that people looked above themselves to ultimate authority in God, seeing him as the one who defines reality and how we should live.  Then we went through the secular age where it’s believed that science answers everything.  However we know that can’t last because without God, science makes no sense.  After all, the only reason we do science is because we believe there’s ultimate truth in reality.  So people have been searching for yet another ultimate authority and truth and they’re attempting to find it in self. 

Listen in as Jim has Martyn explain the puzzle pieces in the book that solve the identity puzzle, not man’s way, but to the glory of God!
