In the Kingdom of the Blind …   1 comment

This is Part 5 of a series on Christian truth and the truth claims of Jesus. Check it out.

You have a worldview. Some people deny that they have a worldview, but everyone has one.Many of you might deny that you have a worldview, but you have one. If you say, “Hey, all I want to do is party, I don’t have a worldview, and don’t need one,” then that hedonism is your worldview. The Bible describes that way of thinking as “eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we may die.” Philosophers would probably call such a view of life “hedonistic nihilism,” which is a fancy way of saying “have a good time and don’t care about anything.”

Your worldview might have been shaped by what you learned at Mommy’s knee as a child, or from Sesame Street or Mister Rogers, from religious belief and tradition, by occultism and superstition, by humanism and rationalism, or wht you view this week on “Dr. Phil” and “Oprah.”

You have a worldview that can either be clearly thought out or almost totally subconscious, it may be brutish or noble, it may be sensible or weird, but you have a worldview and, whether you know it or not, it is very important to you. It governs the way you think and live and guides your decisions about everything you do.

If you are a professing Christian, you have an obligation to think out your worldview. You are pledged by your covenant with the God of the Bible to learn His ways and to follow Him (John 10:27). If you are going to follow Christ, then you need to be aware of how God wants you to view the world, and you need to learn to live by His worldview.

Historically, the Christian Worldview has been determined by the answers to two questions:

  • What is Truth?
  • Why are we alive?

These two most basic questions focus on what it means to be human and what is the nature of reality. Of course, for us to even ask these questions flies in the face of the common modern worldview which denies the existence of truth, purpose, and direction in the universe. In fact, if we think it makes sense to ask these questions, it is evidence that Christ lives within us.
