The Truth Project Promotes Biblical Worldview
Special Report - September 4, 2008
In light of a recent study showing only 9 percent of Christians subscribe to a Biblical worldview, Focus on the Family has launched The Truth Project to rebuild a foundational biblical worldview among Christians. Developed and led by Dr. Del Tackett, these 12 DVD-based small group lessons explore the relevance and importance of living a Biblical Christian worldview in daily life through a study of the nature and character of God and how He has revealed Himself. Lessons cover a wide range of subjects including economics, art, media, music, literature, philosophy, and ethics. These efforts come from a recognition that worldview intimately affects the life and decisions of individuals within a society. By impacting a person’s worldview, it is possible to effect fundamental societal change.
Today, according to Dr. Tackett, there is little difference between the lives of non-believers and believers, who have “bought the lies of the world [and] are suffering deeply from the consequences of believing those lies.” The Truth Project attributes this pattern to a worldview problem, which cannot be fixed by treating the symptoms. Rather, a deep and permanent transformation is needed. Contributor Gordon Pennington sees The Truth Project as a conscious decision of today’s Christians “to either confront culture, to abandon it, or transform it.”
The Truth Project works in small group settings, requiring a large number of trained facilitators to lead groups. Facilitator training sessions have been held throughout the United States and around the world, due to increased interest in the program. On September 27, 2008, 326 churches across the U.S. will host a nationwide simulcast to train facilitators for the program. In North Carolina, churches in Aberdeen, Burlington, Chapel Hill, Franklin, Kannapolis, Monroe, and Rocky Mount have signed up as host locations for North Carolinians interested in receiving the training for leading small groups studying The Truth Project in their homes.
