Restoring the Vision is a worldview seminar that will be unlike any you may have attended.
It is rooted in Proverbs 29:18: “Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint, but happy is he who keeps the law.”
The Apostle Paul affirms this truth in Romans 118-32: When we turn away from the revelation of God and make ourselves God, then we descend into a death spiral of unrighteousness and God “gives us over” to the consequences, the loss of any restraint in the expressing our enmity against God and one another.
That is why this worldview seminar will start by having noted author, speaker and pastor, Dr. George Grant, provide us a firm foundation in who God reveals Himself to be and what that means for us a human beings made in God’s image and as a society of human beings. Without a right understanding of who God is, we will engage in futile thinking (Romans 1:21).
Then we will turn to an application of these truths in the sphere of civil government and law.
This section will be led off by Jeff Shafer former Senior Counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom. Mr. Shafer is as at home in the field of academics as in the courtroom when it comes to understanding how our understanding of law affects the direction of society. Jeff’s presentation will demonstrate with real life examples of just how our wrong views of God have led to wrong views of law and how those have led to all “restraint” being “cast off” in our society.”
Finally, FACT’s president, David Fowler, an attorney, author, and former state legislator, will close with session directed at hope for the future by laying out some fundamental constitutional concepts we need to know and strategies for pursuing a recovery of those concepts among our legislators and judges.
If you are concerned about the direction of things in our country, want to have a strong God-centered view of law and government, and want to know how we can begin to recover a God-centered understanding of law and government, then Restoring the Vision is for you.
