Worldviews DO Matter
When I was younger I didn't realize why I saw the world the way I did. I didn't know all the things that went into shaping the 'filter' through which I saw the world. I also didn't realize how corporate or societal worldviews were shaped. Now, many years later, I find myself focusing on, talking and teaching about worldviews, on the Air, to groups, etc.
Each century, and every generation, sees shifts in cultural and political worldviews, which are either built on previous worldviews or a strong departure from them. Most changes are not new views, but rather the old ones, only reworked, revised, or rewritten.
Today's classrooms not only promote the current postmodern worldview, but a revisionist view of history. What will this mean as this generation grows up and takes the helm of directing our nation and the world? Well, just look through the lens of the worldview 'glasses' they wear today and you'll know what tomorrow will look like. Think: millennials and pro-socialism, etc.
In addition to getting acquainted with the book we will be reading for the Fall, "Alliance of Evil" by Lt. Col. Robert Maginnis, I will be talking about "Four Keys to Understanding our World Today" on the show this month.
The point in talking about current prominent Worldviews is to #1 understand why we personally see the world as we do; and #2 to help us have a framework with which to view the issues of our day, and be able to better discern what is going on politically and culturally with greater clarity, certainty and confidence.
Are there certain tests a worldview must pass to be accurate? That's what we've been exploring on the show this month and next with our 'Clash of Worldviews' series.
I hope you will join us on the Air, and read along with us our book choice of the month. It will be well worth it, believe me.
