Duane McBride: “Unity in Fundamental Beliefs within the Framework of Culturally Based Cognitive Dissonance” at Faith & Reason Sabbath School

(10:00 a.m. eastern / 9:00 a.m. central / 7:00 a.m. Pacific)


This Sabbath, Duane McBride presents “Unity in Fundamental Beliefs within the Framework of Culturally Based Cognitive Dissonance."

Why is there unity of acceptance of Adventist fundamental beliefs while so many at the same time hold opposite personal views? What role does the broader cultural context play in supporting these oppositional beliefs? And what does this mean for a global church with 28 fundamental beliefs and members from a hundred different cultures? Duane will present data from the Adventist global core church member survey to support his observations.

Duane is senior research professor at Andrews University and director of the Institute for Prevention of Addictions. He loves playing with data and with words and is an articulate observer of all things Adventist. After all, he’s a sociologist.  

Faith and Reason Sabbath School meets Sabbath, August 12, 10:00 am. Socializing starts at 9:30.
