How to Ruin a False Worldview BY Chuck Colson

Worldview Competition
How to Ruin a False Worldview
January 27, 2010 Chuck Colson
A while back on BreakPoint, I talked about a teenager who attended a
worldview training camp run by Summit Ministries. The young man
complained, tongue in cheek, that worldview training had "ruined" movie
watching for him. He could not longer watch films without automatically
searching for the worldview messages.
That's great news: The whole point of worldview training is to "ruin"
attempts to convince teenagers that any worldview conforms to reality
better than Christianity does. But we can't wait until the teen years to
start talking to kids about worldview-and parents know it. Many times
I've had moms and dads come up to me and say, "What do you have for
younger kids?"
Well, it's a critical need. Because the studies show us that a person's
basic views about life are formed during the morally formative years
between five and eleven. I've seen this first hand in the prisons over
the years as the prison populations have exploded because have no
parents that can teach them write and wrong at the ages when they can be
really, morally shaped.
My colleague John Stonestreet is a speaker and writer for Summit
Ministries. He's also now joined me here at BreakPoint, where in March,
he will launch a new one-minute radio program called The Point.
John told me he and his colleagues were frustrated over the quality of
Christian books for kids. Most of them contained Bible lessons with a
moral at the end. But's that not teaching worldview. So Summit joined
with Apologia educational ministries to write a worldview series for
kids.
I've seen these books, and I can tell you this: They will ruin the
efforts of secular teachers, journalists, and sex educators to brainwash
our kids-because they instruct even young children how to think.
The first volume in the planned four-part series is titled, Who Is God
and Can I Really Know Him? The second volume is Who Am I And What Am I
Doing Here? The curriculum is intended for children as young as six, and
contains "big ideas," vocabulary, discussion questions, exercises,
stories, and activities.
The books, written by John Hay and David Webb, introduce kids to the
concept of differing worldviews and how they shape our perceptions of
the world around us. They also teach kids that conflicting worldviews
cannot all be true. When they face contradictory worldview claims, the
authors invite kids to ask themselves two critical questions: How do I
know what is true? And how must we live our lives in relation to the
truth we come to know? Just the right questions!
Given how much our culture now influences even the youngest children
through school, television, films, advertising, and video games, it's
never too early to begin worldview lessons.
You can order copies of these two excellent textbooks by going to our
website bookstore, www.breakpoint. org

ub9abd9aT0AOwmM9T0w -wOF85hQ0KYYBN- VW0zGV97eAg= => . These books are great
not only for Sunday School, but for parents to use with their children
at home.
At a time when Christian teachings are subject to increasing hostility,
and other worldviews are gaining popularity, children must learn early
what they believe, why they believe it, and how to boldly defend those
beliefs. They must be taught, not only how to share their faith, but how
to explain to their friends why it conforms to reality better than any
other belief system.
Once they've learned how to defend their beliefs on the playground,
they'll have no problem defending them a few years later in the public
square.
