The Importance of a Biblical Worldview

One of the key components to thinking biblically and living out your life as a dedicated and committed Christian is the development of a Bible-based worldview. Your worldview, or the lens through which you view your world and everything in it, ultimately determines your choices about who God is, who you are and how you will live out your time here on earth.

In their book, Who is God? And Can I Really Know Him?, authors John Hay and David Webb point out that ‘when a particular worldview is held by a large number of people, it becomes highly influential, swaying many through media, entertainment, education, and corporate behavior.”

For Christians who are actively involved in missions and evangelism, it is very important that we understand the subject of worldview. The more widely held worldviews of the twenty-first century include Secular Humanism, Socialism, Marxism, New Age, Post-Modernism, Islam and Christianity.

As you interact with others it is important to assess their worldview so that you might be able to understand more about what they perceive to be true. This is another reason why we must be serious students of the emerging global village that is encompassing North America and the world. As Christians we are being faced with the critical questions of both How do we know the truth and in light of that truth, How must we live our lives in relation to that truth?

The truth that Jesus Christ is both Creator, Savior and Lord is foundational to the professing Christian. This is a point that the Bible clearly supports and that the Evangelist/Apologist must drive home to the unbeliever. We must remember as we go that God is Truth and that He reveals His truth to people. We must continue to pray that the Seed of the Word of God find fertile soil in the hearts of men and women and that the truth of Scripture which chronicles the Christ as the One who Was and Is and Is to Come be preached to the uttermost parts of the earth.

Maranatha!
