Certificate of Completion
Saint or secularist, everyone has a worldview. More powerful than a philosophy, a worldview is set of beliefs embedded in a larger metanarrative, that seeks to live out its answers - for good or for bad. Unfortunately, the “world story” informing many Christians is one that is contradictory to the biblical one, and this serves to undermine their influence in the kingdom of God. For many Christians who have roiled over the cultural and societal developments occurring over the past few years, you will learn the worldview underpinning the manifestation of these issues has been at work for more than two-hundred years.
