Syncretism has historically been a problem for the covenant people of God and today is no exception. Recent studies have shown that professing Christians struggle to remain singularly devoted to Jesus amidst a society that begs them to worship other gods. This is especially the case with young men and women between the ages of eighteen and thirty at Northview Community Church in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. Many of these emerging adults are relatively ignorant regarding the Christian worldview, ignorant about other worldviews that are present in North American culture, and ignorant regarding the skill necessary to exegete films that communicate these worldviews. A course that trains these young people to identify and evaluate worldviews in films should help them to remain faithful to the exclusive call of Jesus Christ on their lives.
