Topic: Understanding Assumptions Versus Truths.
Is there a difference between truth and assumptions about what is true? The founders of America said they believed in “self-evident truths,” and among those truths are that the Creator has endowed us with our rights. But many people today deny the existence of God. They assume that atheists like Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris have done their homework in supposedly disproving God. David Richardson, Jr. has worked for 30 years for Campus Crusade (now called Cru). Richardson says that the problem with many assertions in our culture today—like there is no God—is that these are just assumptions. Richardson has written the book Transparent: How to See Through the Powerful Assumptions That Control You. David Richardson, Jr. joins Jerry Newcombe to discuss the importance of examining assumptions. www.learntodiscern.com
