Core Beliefs Drive Outcome
Segment 1 (0:00) – Obama is not the problem in USA, but a manifestation of a greater problem. At the core, our beliefs ultimately shape our actions. To make an impactful difference, the focus should be on the beliefs.
Segment 2 (8:18) – Obama is not the problem. Beliefs shape our behavior. But great divide between beliefs based on God and those based on Man. Beliefs based on man are self-focused, live for today, etc., which leads to selfish behavior. For example, abortion is based on self interest and certain populations are conditioned to believe that is the right thing to do. Also, welfare, etc. allows laziness and getting free stuff. Man based beliefs result in behavior driven by senses and emotion. God based beliefs lead to Jesus, which transformed our thinking and ultimately our behavior.
Segment 3 (16:59) – Continued discussion on how beliefs influence actions. Political activism is not the only answer but balance that with involvement in local church teaching the purity of the gospel. Good teaching can lead to good beliefs, thinking and actions. In USA, beliefs drive voting choices and resulting politicians and country. If we find a local, Bible based church with sound teaching, we become teachers ourselves, able to share the Gospel and help shape beliefs, even in a small way, and can influence direction of country and society.
