We’re in a war—the War of the Worldviews.
False narratives live in television programming, film, video, audio, music, curricula and education, writing, public policy and law … and more. Upstream from the Narrative Wars are the Worldview Wars.
In the 2nd half of this conversation, J.C.L. Faltot and I discuss the narrative wars and the war of the worldviews. See episode #34 for the first half of this conversation: Take the Red Pill — Wake Up to the Narrative Wars with Joshua C. Faltot!

Some of Our Dialogue Edges on War of the Worldviews
- Our personal life narrative is core. Then we can venture into the arena of narrative wars and the war of the worldviews.
- The worldview wars are upstream from the narrative wars. Many in the complacent Church are compromised on worldview issues.
- Instead of just consuming content, engage the Narrative Wars and the War of the Worldviews by creating content.
- Partner with the Creator—including the most creative act we can do, Spirit-inspired prayer.
- “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10, NASB).
