Do you ever feel like at every corner you turn you hear about the same thing? Lately, one topic I've heard a great deal about is the dumbing down of America.
Media only feeds you what tickles your ears. School only teaches you what a non-biblical worldview has to offer. Mom's don't expect much from their young children. Society expects nothing from teenagers....and so on.
Our standard is so low. Not only is our standard low, people are not expected to raise it any. In our Sunday School class one of our classmates shared that he was instructed how to write a proposal for work at a 6th grade level!
Why is this so? Why are we not engaging our minds and thinking? Are we even taught to think...and I mean think critically?
My hope is that you not only have a high standard for yourself, but are challenging yourself with critically thinking through life and world issues (evolution, abortion, homosexuality, divorce, pornography, lawlessness).
Not just thinking through them, but know how to defend your faith and beliefs when challenged (which in this society you will be challenged!!).
What do you do to challenge yourself to think more critically?
