Saving Truth Study Guide
How Christians can guard their own minds against the lies that surround us and defend truth and clarity to a world that rejects both.
By accurately describing the Culture of Confusion, the rise of the "post-truth" mindset, and how it has affected our society, author Abdu Murray will awaken you and your group to the plight we find ourselves in and challenge Christians to steer away from contributing to such a culture by instead finding hope in the clarity that Christ offers.
In this eight-session, video-based study (DVD/streaming video sold separately) is designed to take you deeper into the topic of meaning and clarity through personal reflection and Scripture engagement and will:
- Help you understand the post-truth mindset and how it infects and affects us all.
- Equip you with facts and knowledge about the various areas of life where we are steeped in a post-truth mindset and losing our bearings as a culture, specifically: our freedom, our humanity, our sexuality, faith and science, and religious pluralism.
- Explain how the message of Jesus can answer our deepest questions, and how the actions of Jesus can bring truth and clarity to a post-truth culture desperately in need of objective, biblical truth.
Increasingly, Western culture embraces confusion as a virtue and decries certainty as a sin. Those who are confused about morality are progressive pioneers. Those who are confused about spirituality are praised as tolerant. And those who express certainty about any of these issues are seen as bigoted, oppressive, or intolerant.
For individuals or groups who feel like they're enmeshed in the culture of confusion, the Saving Truth Study Guide sheds light on the way to see through the fog that surrounds us—by seeing Jesus and his message as the fixed point of reference that we so desperately need.
