“We give authority to whom and what we trust, and the more we trust something or someone, the more authority we give."

—  Inklings on Philosophy and Worldview By Matthew Dominguez

Providing our youth with the capacity to 'set their minds on things above' (Col. 3:2), to think, weigh, and assess in the light of God's Word, is an increasingly complex and challenging task. But for this and future generations it is crucial, redemptive work. When their truth is bound by "...the knowledge of the mystery of God, both of the Father and of Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Col. 2:2-3), they will be convicted and set free from the bondage of distraction, deception and 'neurological' death.

In a post-Christian world, truth has become more and more subjective. We hear the cry, 'my truth is not your truth'. However, whilst there may be different interpretations there can only be one truth. So where do we turn to for THE truth? In whom or what can we really trust? With such choice, confusion and conflict arise from the clamour of competing voices or worldviews. Voices that have become the fuel and, increasingly often, the foment of social media. Words, magnified, manipulated, maligned or muffled, on platforms where young people are spending a considerable amount of their time.
