English term or phrase:has lost its moorings
So the message of Biblical Christianity, with its firm roots in a world made and owned by God, has become more than ever relevant to Western society—a society which ***has lost its moorings*** as it has increasingly embraced a philosophy that has no absolutes and thus no means to measure right and wrong.
Explanation: in other words is drfiting, which is what happens to a ship that has lost it moorings, this seems to me closer to the idea in the sentence than ha perdido el norte, and perdido el norte seems more colloquial and more used for people who have lost their personal direction, than for a society without direction, whihc is the intention here.
