The article deals with the philosophical problem of the worldview in a competitive environment associated with the imperative of its dissemination in society. It is noted that in the modern theology, the scientific and practical problem of the correlation of religious and materialistic pictures of the world, the peculiarities of their relations, which is traced, in particular, in the communication of people of different world-view paradigms, is urgent. The manifestations of religious life, in their expression, often contain internal polemical moments that relate to the specifics of accepting one's own doctrine for the world and the very understanding of one's spiritual life, including the relation of a solitary monastic life and an active mission for a secularized society. The analysis of components of the motivation of spreading their beliefs in the most polar positions – atheism and theism – is presented. The author writes that different modes of exteriorisation of worldview as an element of social consciousness are inevitable; they are diverse in accordance with the goals and objectives of their own picture of the world. The most striking mode of exteriorisation of worldview is the religious and anti-religious mission. It is noted that the modern religious type of worldview is characterized by the imperative of externalizing the worldview. However, the internal thesis about the necessity of the mission comes into considerable contradiction with the fundamental provisions of the explicated worldview. On the example of the exteriorization of the religious worldview, in particular the Orthodox mission, the internal contradiction of the idea of the mission and the basic foundations of Orthodoxy has been demonstrated. The author points out that faith or unbelief should not be denatured in the paradigms of human relations, in particular in the dialogue of worldviews. It is necessary to calmly accept the manifestation of faith or unbelief, because in the present they have lost some of their value as irreconcilable antagonists. The question of developing a constructive type of explication and propagation of the worldview is considered. It is proved that the adequacy of perception of own metaphysical assertions, the absence of a high degree of its passage into a competitive environment, due to the imperative of its dissemination, could contribute to a more constructive dialogue of worldviews and, if necessary, ideological discussions.
