First show of the New Year and it rotates totally around the importance of understanding worldviews in dealing with the issues of the day.
John’s boralogue reviews the recent court decision on intelligent design, using clips of Dr. Steven Meyer, Ph.D, (www.discovery.org) from the Discovery Institute in Seattle, separating the real issues behind ID vs. the straw ones, which are commonly presented in the media.
Then we talk with Brannon Howse (www.worldviewweekend.org), who organizes worldview weekends for groups around the country, training youth in the importance of the Christian worldview and understanding competing ones.
Finally, we’ll run part of an entertaining address given by Frank Peretti at Candlelight Fellowship (www.candlelightfellowship.org) on the subject of absolute truth and the absurdities some people mouth when trying to deny it.
Everybody has a worldview; it’s shaped by your values system and personal biases, education, religious beliefs, experiences, etc. Your individual worldview governs your daily thought processes and actions and will ultimately determine your place in life. Identify the moving parts of your worldview and gain insight to debate with those who hold opposing worldviews and discern the truth. Truth is that which pertains to reality. Reality is a great equalizer and when reality becomes real there’s no room for excuses.
Worldview Wars is a series of four lectures by veteran broadcaster, John Loeffler, detailing the competing worldviews of the 20th Century. Philosophers such as Rousseau, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Darwin, Nietzsche, Marx and Dewey have radically altered western culture and threatened to undermine traditional values. Total running time – 5 hours.
