Teaching a Christian Worldview in Today’s Confusing Culture

False spiritual narratives have infected our culture! A large segment of the population has been misled into believing that…
♦ Truth is found inside each of us, so it can be different for everyone. ♦ Gender is a decision.
♦ Any sincerely followed spiritual path can lead to God. ♦ Intolerance is always wrong.
♦ Happiness is the goal of life. ♦ Organized religions do more harm than good.
♦ Sin is an unhealthy, outdated concept. ♦ People should have the right not to be offended.

In these confusing and increasingly unbiblical times, how are parents and grandparents to fulfill their God-given responsibility to teach a Christian worldview to the next generation? Drawing on their experiences in the New Age Movement and the occult prior to coming to faith in Christ, Michael and Sarah offer guidance about how to recognize and combat “pretentions that set themselves up against the knowledge of God” (2 Cor 10:5). Practical illustrations from their award-winning book Frog’s Rainy-Day Story and Other Fables make this a most enlightening and entertaining workshop!
