Critical Issues
A structured outline of the ultimate issues
07/17/2018

There are categories of ultimate issues.  The first relates to personally external issues and is sometimes thought to be primary. But the second relates to personally internal issues and may be just as important if not more so.

Generally, issues always revolve around the five short "W" questions below

Who?  -  Why?  -  What?  -  When?  -  Where?

I  Who

1. Who should be in control?

a. Of the universe
b. Of the environment
c. Of your life
d. Of your future

2.   Who should benefit?

Personal issues:

Who is in charge of my belief system? Me or some other agency?

Who should I listen to?

Religious leaders? If so, which religion and which leaders? The world is fractured into approximately 100,000 different religions
Philosophers? If so, which ones, because there are significantly different paradigms and approaches.
Scientists? If so, which ones, because there are raging controversies in every discipline and over almost every issue.
Mystics? If so, which ones? They love to be enigmatic and are all over the map.
Ancient “sacred writings”? Which ones? They are in major disagreement over the paradigm of God and reality.
Scholars? Which ones? The ones that are most vocal? Why do I listen to them and not to the others?
Self-help gurus?

Truth issues:

Is there truth independent of perspective?

Why would I look for this truth if it is not:

Good and suitable for me.
Available for me to discover?
Recognizable by me.
