There is nothing worse than a culture that fosters superficial thought.
And it’s no secret that far too many Americans can’t think their way out of a wet paper bag.
Thinking today is dominated by television culture.
Lacking any patience for, or training in, the history of Western thought, a lot of people today form opinions of great importance on the basis of a vague sentiment, slogan, or sound bite.
Unable to form sound judgments and reach valid conclusions, they are easily swayed by emotion and other superficial appearances.Sound reason and logic never get a chance.
But you have kids and raise them well, so what does this have to do with you?
BUT IS THIS REALLY TRUE?
THE MODERN WORLD BOMBARDS US WITH ARGUMENTS THAT TRY TO PERSUADE US HOW WE SHOULD THINK AND ACT
The fact is that your kids will someday have to “rub shoulders” and interact with this culture (a culture that is becoming more and more hostile to the Christian worldview).
Kids need proper intellectual training to be equipped to engage this culture and meet various challenges while keeping their values and worldview intact. You need to protect your children by preparing them to protect themselves.
