1. Know the Essentials of a Christian Worldview
For lack of rooting and grounding in the truths of God's Word, only 1% of millennials (as of 2023) hold to a biblical worldview, even though 56% still refer to themselves as Christians. Here is a short course for every believer and every young student of the Word of God on the basics of the Christian faith. Without delving too deeply into the intramural conflicts within Christianity, this book lays down the line of demarcation between the Thesis of truth, and the Antithesis of demonically contrived worldviews that have ensnared the whole world. Kevin Swanson lays down what he call "trunk faith" or the essential truths every Christian must believe, without getting too caught up in the "leaves" or the minor differences between Christian groups. What distinguishes the Christian faith from the false religions and the bad worldviews that make up the rest of the world? This course gets down to the basics concerning the nature of truth, the nature of God, the nature of man, origins, ethics, sin, salvation, sociology, and teleology. This is theology 101 for the young believer.
2. Know the Rudiments of Competing Worldviews
"God made man upright, but they have sought out many schemes" (Eccl. 7:29). Now, how does the Christian worldview line up against competing worldviews, and where and how do they fall short? Young people today are subjected to a thousand competing voices through media, academia, and peers. They are too easily "cheated through philosophy and empty deceit according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ" (Col. 2:8). This book sets out to expose these vain philosophies, and to make way for the truth. The light shines in the darkness. The falsehoods must be exposed, and the truth must prevail.
3. Know How to Give an Answer for the Hope in You
We are challenged to "cast down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:5). This course will also introduce basic apologetics for the Christian believer.
