The church was placed by God at the confluence between men and God to promote the interests of Heaven in favor of the earthlings. As these two elements, which are defining for the human existence, are becoming more and more estranged from each other, as a result of the influence of current human ideologies, the Church is becoming increasingly limited in options and is forced to choose between cultural accommodation and spiritual revolution. For the same reasons, the Church has also been deprived of the image potential it used to enjoy, as its means of expression have been limited. The aim of this article is to prove that the audience to whom the Church is addressed, which is overwhelmingly influenced by postmodernism in its various forms of manifestation, might have the opportunity to opt again for different divine approaches to life. This might happen only to the extent to which the Church is willing to assume a brave and responsible role on the ideology market, while also providing a life model promoted by the genuine Christian lives of its members. Despite all the challenges posed by Christianity, Postmodernism can give the Church the opportunity to be revived.
