William Safire said the Sermon on the Mount is “the single most important discourse on #Christian law and living.” But is the #Bible a credible source for moral instruction?

What is #terrorism, and why has it become the weapon of choice for marginalized minorities around the world?

At least part of the answer is that, for those who engage in it, it seems to fill a basic human need.

At the turn of the millennium, many proclaimed that this would be the #Chinese Century. Do current world events support that prediction?

Dwight Eisenhower and others decried war’s destructiveness, yet it’s become an inevitable part of life. That’s just as predicted 2,000 years ago.

In-depth coverage of current social issues. Insights into the philosophical, moral and ethical values in society today—health care, science and environmental news and articles.
Introduction
Vision evaluates the news of the day from a different perspective than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems facing humanity.

Where do you turn for trustworthy information in today’s world of sound bites and sensationalized news? With the average person being bombarded by literally thousands of messages every day from the ever expanding and fragmenting media, how is it possible to sort through the tremendous clutter and make sense of the conflicting voices?

With these questions in mind, the idea of Vision.org was born. We set out to create a Web site that would challenge readers to examine the historical and philosophical origins of today’s issues. Here you will find articles from our quarterly international companion journal Vision as well as other articles, interviews and information that help give direction in a difficult and confusing age.

While Vision.org examines the issues of today, it is not primarily a news site. Instead it seeks to evaluate the news of the day in a more in-depth way than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems with which humanity wrestles. In doing so, we affirm our commitment to accuracy and to honest treatment of the facts of every issue we explore. We are dedicated to presenting the subjects we address in a thorough, objective and balanced way.

But, like every other information or news source, we do have a certain bent. Vision.org brings insight into the complex social, moral and philosophical questions that confront society by examining them through the wisdom of an ancient source, the Bible. We believe that the principles contained in that book are still valid and can be applied to help solve the global, national and personal conflicts we face. But we do not proselytize, nor do we seek to convert anyone to any denomination or religious belief. Our only goal is to reestablish the Bible as a credible voice in the discussion of ideas. We hope you benefit from what you read, hear and see on this site, and we look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
