Critical Theory II
Fate or Freedom: Finding truth in a confused world (Critical Theory II)
David Campbell's focus in this course is to address the current crisis in western civilization caused by the rise of critical theory and its rather uncritical acceptance in politics, the media and even certain church circles.
In order to provide the understanding Christians need not only to counter these trends we need to go back to the very roots of our civilization. We will discover the existence of an age-old battle between two very different understandings of reality. We will try to show how one of those viewpoints leads us to fear, meaninglessness and a collapse into irrationality, whereas the other leads us to freedom through knowledge of the truth.
If there was ever a time to fight for the un-compromised truth of God’s Word, it is now.
