The Truth Project

We began Guided By Truth because we were overwhelmed by the amount of false doctrine that has infiltrated the church. It became apparent to us that many Christians were confused about even basic doctrine. Therefore, when I heard about The Truth Project I was eager to participate and see if this was indeed a project that guides people into the truth of God's Word. I am very pleased to tell you that it does.

Even with our experience with people who believe in false doctrine, it was still shocking for us to learn from this project that only 4% of the general American population have a biblical worldview. What was even more shocking to learn was that among those who consider themselves to be "born-again believers" only 9% hold to a biblical worldview.

It is obvious that there is a lack of biblical knowledge in our country and The Truth Project is working to lead the church back to a correct biblical worldview. Led by Dr. Del Tackett, The Truth Project takes you through 13 weeks of 12 lessons, which they call tours, that lay the foundation for a biblical worldview. What is a biblical worldview?

A worldview is "a comprehensive set of truth claims that purports to paint a picture of reality; the framework from which we view reality and make sense of the life and the world."

What The Truth Project does is reveal how the truth claims of the bible should be our foundation for living. It shows with great care, how the truth claims of the bible are valid by focusing on the "nature, character, and being of God as it is expressed in His infallible Word and His creation."

The question they challenge you to answer is this:

"Do you really believe, that what you believe is really real?"

Even if you answer yes to this question, I challenge you to participate in The Truth Project to see if you know why. Once you do, then why not lead a session for your friends and family? It will take all of us to help educate other believers so that the Word of God can begin to impact their lives in a very real way.

You can visit The Truth Project website to locate a small group in your area. It can also be purchased by anyone willing to lead a study. It comes with access to all the materials you need for leading a group study in your home. Training is also available for leaders. Many churches have also offered the study. However you are able to participate, we urge you to become a part of it.

Below is the teaser to spark your interest in The Truth Project. You will also want to visit their website where you will find many other resources available to those who are seeking the Truth.
