Everyday you see the world from a specific view. That view has been influenced by the way you were raised; by the environment you live in; by your education; by culture (media, arts, entertainment) and by what you’ve been taught to believe. So how you see the world, your specific worldview, is the lens through which you make decisions, respond to the world around you and how you view the future. This blog is meant to take another look at the world from a Biblical worldview.
Everyone Has A Worldview
You may think that you don’t have a specific worldview, and to a degree that may be true. Some have a view that combines more than one worldview, known as syncretism. Most of us don’t think about our worldview everyday, but we constantly make decisions based on a worldview. It becomes second nature, but that little voice in our inner person says, “Why did you say that? Why did you do that?” The complex answer to those questions of conscience is … we filter our actions and words through our worldview. If our worldview is corrupt, then it’s very likely our actions and words will be defective also.
A Simple Definition
A worldview is “the sum total of our beliefs about the world.” Chuck Colson
A Biblical worldview is what you think is fair, true, just… it’s how you act with compassion, mercy and forgiveness. It’s how you proceed forward with optimism, goodness and doing what’s best for your neighbor, thinking of others before yourself all based on Biblical law and the principles Jesus taught. (Matthew 18:20 …teaching them to follow all that I commanded you…)
