Key Thought for this session:

“If any outcome of life is acceptable to me, then any path will get me there.”

In your study of worldview, you will explore topics that form spheres of influence in your life, like work, economics, family, government, education, and religion. Yet, we want you to consider that living an abundant and virtuous life involves more than just getting more knowledge on these subjects. This series of sessions is designed to provide you a framework to adapt and maybe even transform your views as you study and observe worldview topics.

Let’s turn our discussion to exploring worldview and the human dilemma.

So, what is this “dilemma.” Well, first, we find that we spend our time and money in many ways to get more knowledge. Presumably that’s part of the reason you spend money for an education.

But, if you think about it, what we really want to find is “truth.” An example of this is Internet searching. You come across a lot of supposed knowledge on the Internet, but you don’t have to search long before you figure out you can’t assume everything on a Web page or social media page is the truth. If you really want to know the truth, you keep searching until you find sufficient evidence, usually from multiple sources, that convinces you that something is in fact true.

While it feels like there should be truth that exists beyond each person’s opinion, is it difficult to know whose opinion is right and whose is not?
