'The Truth Project'

Beginning Wednesday, Aug. 29, Southeast Christian Church’s La Grange Campus will host a class on uncovering the truth of what God says about the world in which we live.

Focus on the Family’s “The Truth Project” is a 13-week, video-driven study that focuses on building a solid Biblical worldview.

Throughout the study, participants will look at topics such as anthropology, sociology, philosophy and history from a Biblical perspective.

According to Dr. Dell Tackett, author of “The Truth Project,” only 9 percent of professing Christians have a Biblical worldview.

“If this is true, how can we as Christians impact the world for the kingdom of God?” Tackett says in the introductory lesson of “The Truth Project.” “We, as the church, have watched as society has increasingly pushed God away over the past several years. At the same time statistics show little difference in behavior between those in the church and those outside it. Why is this? The answer is at least in part because a majority of Christians do not have a Biblical worldview.”

La Grange Campus Support Pastor Tim Lehmann said gaining a Biblical worldview has practical benefits.

“With a Biblical worldview, you will be better able to stand strong when your faith is challenged,” Lehmann said. “You will understand the foundational truths of God’s purpose for you and the world around you. You will be able to identify the subtle and the blatant deceptions in the world that surrounds you every day.”

Lehmann said that while the study takes an academic approach to understanding worldview, he hopes it will drive participants to make life changes.

“This study is not intended to just give you knowledge,” Lehmann said. “It will do that. However, this study is intended to be a transformational study that will be a starting point for looking at everyday life from God’s perspective.”

Lehmann said “The Truth Project” is ultimately designed to empower people to share the love of God and the message of the Gospel with a firm foundation of the truth of God’s Word.

“Romans 12:2 challenges us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds,” Lehmann said. “As Christians, we cannot be salt and light in a world that desperately needs to see the truth and love of God if we do not have a solid foundation ourselves. With a comprehensive Biblical worldview, you will be equipped to impact the world around you from the truth of God.”

“The Truth Project” will be held Wednesdays, beginning Aug. 29, at 6:30 p.m., in the Worship Center at the La Grange Campus. Register online at www.southeastchristian.org. For more information, visit www.thetruthproject.org or contact tlehmann@secc.org.
