Who shapes your worldview? As people of faith, we want to believe that so much of our belief system and ethics are shaped by our journey with Jesus, let alone the Bible.
But what if so much of how we view these things is really shaped by our upbringing, cultural influences, political persuasion, or media consumption? And what if these entities are wholly different from Jesus? That’s not an indictment but a question to lead us to reconsider why we view things the way we do.
“Systemic lying from elected government leaders, torrents of disinformation and misinformation on social media, ideologically fractured accounts of reality, the loss of social norm of truth-telling, the abandonment of virtue to truthfulness. This is where we find ourselves in many nations today,” said Dr. David Gushee on the CBF Podcast Conversation.
Gushee is the Distinguished University Professor of Christian Ethics and Director of the Center for Theology and Public Life at Mercer University. We sat with the ethicist to discuss his new book, “Introducing Christian Ethics.”
