There are basically two worldviews

There are basically two worldviews

The centerpiece of a biblical worldview is God, while the centerpiece of an atheistic worldview is nature and man. A biblical worldview has it’s entire focus on God, while an atheistic worldview does everything in its power to be sure God is not a part of the world.

One acknowledges God while the other believes there is no God. One believes that God created the universe, while the other believes that naturalistic causes brought our world into existence. One believes that God created man, while the other believes that man came into existence through millions of years of evolution. One believes that God has given us a moral code of ethics, while the other believes that men are to establish their own code of ethics. One believes that sin is man’s greatest problem, while the other believes that we are all basically born good but due to negative influences people have become bad. One believes man’s greatest problem is solved spiritually, while the other believes that man’s problems are solved through government intervention, more education, technological developments or a variety of other ways. One believes that every man and woman has a soul, while the other believes men and women do not have a soul. One believes that every man or woman has an eternal destiny while the other believes that either life ends at death or they believe in some system of reincarnation.

Developing a worldview has a far greater impact than you might initially think. For if you have a biblical worldview you will know how to respond to issues in the world. Having a biblical worldview gives you confidence, answers to life’s problems, and a hope for the future.

As Christians we need to  we must  understand what the Bible has to teach in all these areas. Without a biblical understanding, we have left ourselves open and vulnerable to adopting many of the false teaching and false systems of the world. Unless you know and understand the truth, anything sounds good and reasonable. Many a person has fallen for a lie, simply because they did not know the truth.
