What Do You Know About Worldview and Are You Teaching It To Your Children?

What is worldview?  Everyone has one and it is either in line with God or against God.  Your worldview is how you look at and view everything around you, and how you do that is very much based on your belief system.

Well then, you say, we're fine because we believe in God, but are you sure that you have learned to discern everything around you through that filter?  Remember that Satan prowls around like a roaring lion waiting to devour us and he attacks us in such small subtleties, that we and/or our children can be lost before we even know what is happening.

It is so important to learn how to sift everything that you see, hear, watch, read, listen to through a filter and be sure to throw away the trash and cling to the things of God.  In today's society, we are constantly bombarded with information and entertainment and we need to be sure that we are focusing on the information and entertainment that we believe God would approve of -- information and entertainment that show God's character.

How can you do this?  One way is to study Starting Points Literature.  It is an in depth high school study.  Some middle school students, those who are very studious and academically inclined, would also benefit.  It is worth three high school credits, and it is a life-changing experience.  Our oldest son took the class at a co-op when he was about 12 years old, and to this day, (he is now just about 18), he still talks about that class and how much it meant to him, how much it helped him and how much he learned from it.

I plan to teach it at our co-op for the 2013-2014 school year and to study it at home with our 16 year old son, and when our youngest gets a bit older, I will study it with him as well.

You can find out more about it and purchase it at:

If this is a bit pricey, I suggest you look somewhere like Amazon for the reading materials and only buy what you really need from Cornerstone Curriculum.  That can make it affordable.

I highly recommend this curriculum to anyone who really wants their children to be in tune with God when it comes to what they read, what movies they choose to watch, what music they choose to listen to and what video games they choose to play, as well as other things.  It will have life-long value.  You may even learn more about your own worldview and you may even fine tune your own worldview while teaching/studying this to/with your child(ren).
