Dallas Willard concerning the importance of worldview: What we assume to be real and what we assume to be valuable will govern our attitudes and our actions. Period. And usually without thinking. But most people do not realize that they have a worldview, and it is usually one that is borrowed, in bits and pieces, from the social environment in which we are reared. It may not even be self-consistent.
- "Knowing Christ Today"
Our stubborn cat - reality eventually caught up with her!
I repeat: WHAT WE ASSUME TO BE REAL AND WHAT WE ASSUME TO BE VALUABLE WILL GOVERN OUR ATTITUDES AND OUR ACTIONS.
... and very often is NOT consistent with either reality or what we say we believe.
