034 | "Snowflake" Culture and Judging Impact & Intent | Our Coddled Culture (Part 2)

We’ve probably all experienced it… when someone takes your words or actions and assumes motives wrongly on you. They end up misinterpreting your heart and it leads to conflict. Yet, this phenomenon seems to be becoming more and more common in our culture. Why is that? 

Perhaps part of the reason is that we’ve moved from a society that puts primacy on judging intent to rather only looking at impact… even felt impacts which may not be legitimate. Our first episode in this series considered whether or not we are fragile or robust and adaptable by nature. This episode moves that conversation forward. In this episode, we continue to consider some insightful observations from the book by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt, “The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure”. We’ll consider some of their observations about the Three Great Untruths our culture has bought into and then seek to apply a Biblical worldview to these issues to glean God’s wisdom on them. I think many will find it fascinating information, and I pray that we all will find some Biblical wisdom to navigate these issues today.
