Worldview

Feature Friday (4/28/17)

Culture. It is this weird sometimes nebulous, sometimes very precise reality. There can be cultures within culture and there can even be times when culture seems universal. It’s funny how we talk about culture. When we are in elementary school culture is peer pressure. When we get to middle school and high school it’s what’s cool. And when we become adults we just reference culture as “what is”.

Typically, I don’t pay too much attention to cultural hits (music, songs, movies, and TV shows). However, I do find quite often that one item tends to rise above the rest as “the” culturally hot item. The current hot hit…13 Reasons Why. This show came out not long ago and already almost every student knows about it and a large majority have already binge watched every episode. For this reason alone, I think it wise for every parent, teacher, church kid, youth, college volunteer to understand what 13 Reasons Why is and at least consider reading this response by Megan Cullip.

As always enjoy and be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!

WorldviewAs a parent I am deeply concerned that my children grow up in the fear and admonition of the Lord. And to accomplish that I understand it will be first and foremost and only because of the grace of God. However, I also know that God has given me as a parent a role to play in that; part of which is shaping my children’s worldview. “A biblical worldview helps a person think correctly. But we are not purely intellectual beings. We don’t operate solely based on ideas and thoughts. We are flesh and blood, with passions, desires, and longings. We feel things deeply and desire things strongly. Our intellects and desires are intricately interwoven, interacting with and informing each other.” Stephen Altrogge shares a great post here about how “A Solid Worldview Won’t Save My Kids“. Enjoy and I would love to hear any feedback my readers may have!

As always be with the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day!
