Why post-Christian?

I recently came across the following paragraph regarding science and
Christian faith. Any comments?


This age into which we are moving has been called post-Christian, meaning
that the Christian faith has lost control over the conduct of life. The
reason for this is not the rising power of sin; the reason is our failure to
show how the rising powers of science can be applied to the purpose of human
existence when this purpose is found in Christ. The blame does not rest on
the evil of scientific civilization; the blame rests on those of us who have
responsibility for interpreting the revelation in such a way that the powers
of civilization can be brought into its service. This we have not done.
