vs. Christian Worldview
World Views work at multiple levels in each individual. Every person operates out of a basic set of convictions about reality, truth, meaning, and how the world works. Disagreements between individuals and groups on controversial issues can almost always be traced back to a fundamental difference in worldview, recognized or not.
Very often, a difference in worldview becomes apparent when a decison of fundamental importance has to be made. When severe and significant disagreement become obvious, parties to the disagreement often find themselves genuinely surprised that anyone could hold the position they now confront.
We are faced daily with the worldview of issues. Individuals and groups will be offended at peoples' remarks or even a Super Bowl Ad. Some are offended by the half-time show at the Super Bowl. We see certain words can be offensive to certain groups, even when we didn't know it.
While the Homoxexual groups thought the ad was wrong, it's a worldview from a group of people who have a worldview about life. Barry Freiman said, "100% of the gay male community - - we are all REAL MEN engaged in what we consider the manliest pursuit of all - - living an honest life unafraid of engaging in behaviors others may consider un-manly."
The question is: How Is the Christian to view this Ad? Do we still buy Snickers candy bars?
