(This post is less worldview-related and more Christian/Conservatism related.) Ah, CPAC. One of the yearly highlights of any conservative activist. I got to attend two out of the three day-convention for my current journalism program. I'm not the most politically inclined person, though living in DC for the last 2 months has really shifted that. Besides my political ambivalence, I.
As a current journalism student, I've developed this craving to go to conferences. I want to be around professionals, and hopefully find that job which will jump start my career in the business. Which is probably why I've been paying excessive attention to both the National Religious Broadcasters Convention and the Conservative Political Action Conference. Both are at the center of the world I want.
Advice can be a wonderful thing.....if you want it. I remember my mom telling me to never give someone advice unless they ask for it. I'd constantly struggle with holding my tongue and not announcing to the world that I can answer all of your problems with a few well-placed words. Why do I do this? It's probably because I think that I know the answer. It's why.
So, what is a conscience? Do you have one? How does it affect your life? This is the question surrounding RC Sproul’s 15th volume of his Crucial Questions series, How Can I Develop a Christian Conscience? Sproul is a classical Reformed theologian who has taught some very interesting ideas of Christianity. He’s been very helpful for me in grasping what reformed theology actually is. I've been feeling really sensitive, always on the hunt.
I'm a theology/science dork. Because of that, I spent 2 1/2 hours of my life live-tweeting the Ken Ham/ Bill Nye debate. I am opposed to such affairs, but when such a juicy opportunity to A) debate, B) live-tweet, and C) just think about the condition of Worldview and Young Earth Creationism, I couldn't resist. So, here's what I got out of this debate. The State of the.
The word worldview seems pretty easy to define. A worldview is our view of the world, right? Not exactly. The concept has a much more complex history just a simple turn of phrase. According to philosophy professor David Naugle, the word originated with Immanuel Kant, a key philosopher of the Enlightenment. Kant stated that: That last phrase, "our intuition of the world", originated.
A strange event occurred in regard to the Colson Center for Christian Worldview's news station, known as "BreakPoint". In their curated-articles section, known as "RE: news", Mrs. Gina Dalfonzo posted a link to Christ and Pop Culture's article "Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham: Continuing Our Long American Tradition of Spectacle and Culture War". The article critiques whether or not the upcoming debate between Ken Ham (a supporter of.
CCM: The core pillar of the Christian industrial complex. The CCM industry started as an attempt by the Jesus People at creating a musical counter-culture to modern secular music in the 60s and 70s, while the worldview studies industry started in the 1960s with the arrival of Francis.
There are some really good Worldview books out there. Much of Schaeffer's work is good, though flawed in parts. I like CS Lewis, though he is more of an apologist. But there are some authors that are just ludicrous in their attempts at writing worldview studies literature. And today, the ludicrous one is the great Kevin Swanson. Kevin is the host of.
Francis Schaeffer laid the framework for most books on Worldview studies today. And whatever you think of Schaeffer in general, you cannot ignore his importance to the conversation. However, Schaeffer made one major mistake that has impacted the way Christianity interacts with worldview; they have rejected the work of Thomas Aquinas. In his book How Then Shall We Live, Schaeffer tries to describe the history of how philosophical shifts in society led.
