Nothing short of a great Civil war of values
rages today throughout North America.... Two
sides with vastly differing and incompatible
worldviews are locked in a bitter conflict that
permeates every level of society. . . James
Dobson and Gary Bauer Children At Risk , p. 19
17
. . . It is a struggle for the hearts and minds
of people. It is a war over ideas.

WERE IN A BATTLE!
  • 2 Corinthians 103, 4
  • For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war
    after the flesh for the weapons of our warfare
    are not carnal, but mighty through God to the
    pulling down of strongholds.

24
WHERES THE BATTLEGROUND?
  • 2 Corinthians 105
  • Casting down imaginations (arguments,
    speculations), and every high thing that exalts
    itself against the knowledge of God and bringing
    into captivity every thought to the obedience of
    Christ.

25
THE BATTLEGROUND. . .
  • . . .Our Minds

THE PROBLEM
  • The basic problem of the Christians in this
    country in the last eighty years or so, in regard
    to society and in regard to government, is that
    they have seen things in bits and pieces instead
    of totals.
  • - Francis Schaeffer
  • A Christian Manifesto, p. 17.

IMPORTANCE OF WORLDVIEW THINKING
  • Without a biblical worldview, all the great
    teaching goes in one ear and out the other. There
    are no intellectual pegs . . . in the mind of the
    individual to hang these truths on. So they just
    pass through. They dont stick. They dont make
    a difference. - George Barna
