About our Ministry
Restoring Truth Ministries, LLC (RTM) is a Christian ministry
explaining the assault on truth behind the war of worldviews,
which Christendom is now losing.  RTM is primarily a Catholic
apostolate, although we have benefited from the contributions of
many Evangelical Christians who are experts in the natural
sciences and non-Christian worldviews. In addition to the
resources offered on this site, we often conduct conferences and
training seminars for interested groups.

RTM began as an outgrowth of the book (2008) by John Wynne
and Stephen Wynne:  

Repairing the Breach: Explaining the Systematic Deception
Behind the War of Worldviews and How Christendom can Turn the
Tide

This ground-breaking book was aimed at all Christians and all truth-
seekers.  The two subsequent publications of RTM are Catholic-
focused, although non-Catholics can greatly benefit from the
material in the following:

A Catholic Assessment of Evolution Theory (2011)

The Catholic Teaching on Scriptural Inerrancy (2014)

All three books are for sale on the RTM web site, and there are
also free resources that will equip parents, students, teachers, and
clergy members to defend the Christian worldview against
opposing worldviews and philosophies.  Listed below are some
questions and answers that provide more detail about our work and
mission.

What is a worldview and what ideologies are at war?

Every reasoning person holds a worldview, which is simply his or
her ultimate view of reality. A worldview provides answers to
basic questions such as: "Where did I come from?" "Why am I
here?" "Am I morally accountable?" and "What happens when I
die?"  All such questions can be reduced to "Who is God?" and
"Who is man?"

In America, the primary alternatives to Christianity are humanism,
the
New Age, liberal (unorthodox) theology, and postmodernism.  
Adherents to these four alternatives object to the notion of moral
absolutes, which explains why they are increasingly antagonistic
towards Christians and work to eliminate Christian influence.

While dating to the ancient Greeks, the philosophy of humanism
has its modern roots in the re-emergence of the ancient philosophy
of materialism during the Renaissance, plus the rationalism and
unorthodox theology that emerged during and after the
Enlightenment.  The intellectual foundation was completed with the
emergence of Darwinism in 1859.  

The New Age movement is the outgrowth of a merger in thought
between Hinduism, Gnosticism, Theosophy, and the evolutionary
theology of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.  

Liberal (unorthodox) theology also has roots in the flawed
philosophy of the Enlightenment, and eventually morphed into the
Modernist heresy following the appearance of the writings of Hegel
and then Darwin in the 1800s, both of which gave momentum to
negative higher criticism and evolutionary models such as the
Documentary Hypothesis.  

Postmodernism marks the practical end of philosophy, as it holds
that there is no ultimate truth or reality, and that all truth claims are
but the product of a particular society and are often attempts to
gain power over others.  

All four worldview alternatives rely on Darwinism and flawed
philosophical arguments for their intellectual justification.

What are the weapons in the war of worldviews and why is
Christendom losing?

The weapons of this war consist of the assault on truth in all
domains of learning.  While the Scholasticism of the Middle Ages
correctly established that authentic truth in philosophy, science,
history, and theology point to the truth of Christianity (hence the
statement "truth cannot contradict truth"), falsehood in these four
domains is taught as truth in high school and college classrooms,
and has mistakenly convinced millions of trusting students that the
Christian worldview is not consistent with the evidence and sound
reasoning.  

The most influential departure from truth has been Darwinian
science, as the view of man as an evolved animal permeates every
aspect of education. While many sincere Christians hold that
evolution is not opposed to the faith (as true science cannot
contradict truth about God and His creation), this position ignores
two important considerations that are
independent of one's
interpretation of Scripture
(meaning, ultimately, that all Christians
should oppose Darwinism regardless of one's interpretation of
Genesis)
: 1) Darwinian science is not supported by the scientific
evidence (those who believe it is rely upon inaccurate information
they were taught in high school or college and have not undergone
a serious study of the scientific literature themselves), and 2) the
teaching of Darwinism in schools inappropriately ventures into the
philosophical realm.  That is, students are commonly taught that
evolution is a purposeless process and that Darwinism has exposed
belief in a Creator as a superstition and myth.  

While truth cannot contradict truth, falsehood in any domain can
appear to conflict with truths of the faith, and false Darwinian
science, presented as truth to prop up false philosophy, has led
millions into a lapse of faith and the embracing of false
worldviews.  Similar error in the domains of philosophy, theology,
and history has set up students for conversion into false
worldviews that, in truth, are not supported by sound methods or
the evidence.   

In Repairing the Breach, the authors trace the historical departure
from truth in the four domains and explain that the departure was
an intentional effort to give credence to non-Christian worldviews
that would lose their intellectual basis if truth were taught.  
Specific areas studied in depth include Darwinism and its influence
on other domains including jurisprudence, rationalism in
philosophy, and flawed historical methods that have been applied to
historical studies and to theology.

A Catholic Assessment of Evolution Theory studies previous
declarations from the Catholic Magisterium, Sacred Tradition, and
Sacred Scripture and explains that, while the Magisterium has the
final determination on the matter, there is an extremely strong case
that evolution theory is opposed to Church doctrine and is not
consistent with natural science.  Given the historical consequences
of evolution theory on the world stage, Catholics will understand
why it is crucial to obey the
mandates of Humani Generis (1950,
Pope Pius XII) to study the evidence both for and against evolution
theory and not to treat evolution as a certain, proven fact.

In
The Catholic Teaching on Scriptural Inerrancy, the author
shows that, counter to the commonly-heard claim of liberal
Catholic scholars, the Catholic Church has always taught complete
Scriptural inerrancy and continues to do so; Vatican II did not
change this teaching.  The book explains that the source of error
on the part of many liberal scholars is the rationalistic and
evolutionary philosophy that has infected other domains of thought.

If such errors are not reversed, the nation will continue to
disintegrate morally and economically, and freedom will eventually
be lost.

What are the strategic battlefields in the War of
Worldviews?

The three key battlefields are education (including seminaries), the
government (especially the judiciary), and the media.  The most
important of these is education.  

Since 1900, the field of education has been dominated by theorists
such as John Dewey, commonly considered to be the "Father of
American Education" and a key figure in the emergence of the
philosophy of modern humanism.  Dewey viewed children as mere
animals to be manipulated and trained to meet the needs of an
evolving society, and his methods set the stage for the failure in
American education plus the indoctrination of innocent children
into the humanistic worldview.  

Dewey's views continue to dominate public schools as humanist
educational theorists never relinquished control and are able to
execute their strategies today through the like-minded NEA
leadership (though many teachers are well meaning and unaware of
the agenda).  The aim, now largely achieved, continues to be the
use of the classroom to lead children to the rejection of their
Christian heritage and to the pursuit of a hedonistic lifestyle
through harmless sounding programs such as "values clarification"
"outcome based education," and "safe sex" instruction.  

Unfortunately, such programs have had devastating spiritual,
emotional, and physical consequences on those students who fall
victim to the lies being taught. The moral collapse in America is
directly related to this usurpation of parental rights in education and
the misinformation taught in our schools.  

When the assault in education is combined with the glorification of
hedonism (pleasure-seeking) in television and the media, plus
decisions from judicial activists who are hostile to Christianity, it is
not surprising that Christianity is losing the war even though it is
the only worldview consistent with truth and provides satisfactory
answers to the great questions of life.

Can the tide be turned?

The hour is late.  The only hope for the nation is to restore truth to
the four domains and to engage those who oppose truth on the key
battlefields.  Only then will truth seekers understand that
Christianity is the only worldview consistent with the evidence and
that moral absolutes do exist.  Only then can citizens be convinced
that man should govern his affairs according to Christian principles.


Why should I care?

Christians should realize that not only are souls at risk in this
struggle, but there are enormous practical stakes as well.  The only
way to win the debate over moral issues such as abortion and the
exclusivity of marriage, for example, is to challenge the belief of
most citizens that there are no moral absolutes.  This can only be
done,
not by telling those who doubt the existence of God and
moral absolutes that certain behaviors are morally wrong, but by
demonstrating that their relativistic worldview lacks supporting
evidence; that they have been deceived into believing a false
worldview.

If you are not a Christian but are a truth-seeker, one who longs to
hold a worldview in harmony with truth and the evidence from all
domains, then the resources available through RTM can help lead
you to truth. Readers will see that the real evidence from the four
domains overwhelmingly points to the truth of Christianity.

See to it that no one takes you captive
through hollow and deceptive
philosophy, which depends on human
tradition and the basic principles of
this world rather than on Christ.  
                          -  Colossians 2:8

Have nothing to do with the fruitless
deeds of darkness, but rather expose
them.
                           - Ephesians 5:11
The pagans know that the strongest
center of resistance to their plans lies
among believing Christians in the
English-speaking world.  If they can
break that resistance, they will be able
to bring about the new world, socialist,
pagan order.  The easiest and simplest
way to do this is to "educate"
Christian children to become pagans.
                - Samuel L. Blumenfeld

If we could but see the secret motives
that influenced the men of name and
learning in the world...we would find
that it was not always the embracing of
truth for its own sake, that made them
espouse the doctrine they owned and
maintained.
