Text Box: Our “world view” influences how we process and interact with what we see and hear around us. A world view is an explanation of the world. To my mind, there are five basic world views. 

1. Those that don’t believe in a Creator (Atheists).
2. Those who are not sure (Agnostics). 
3. Those that know, or think they know, there is a god or many gods.
4. Those involved in the occult.
5. Those who have faith in, and a personal relationship with, Jesus Christ.

Those that don’t believe in a Creator (Atheists), will likely agree with Darwin’s theory of evolution. Atheist scientists that don’t believe in a Creator, must interpret everything through that filter, even to the point of believing the universe came into existence from nothing.  No matter where their scientific research leads them, even if it points to a Creator, they feel compelled to formulate theories and mathematical models that explain their findings, with no God. Some might take this as being a little dishonest, but without a moral framework, who is to say what honesty is. If there is no moral giver, there is no absolute set of morals. If there is no absolute set of morals, then each person makes up their own set of morals as they go along. One man’s dishonesty is another man’s truth. Not only, according to these scientists, did the universe come into existence from nothing, but life came from a chance combination of matter and time (time must also have originally come into existence by itself).  To believe these scientists requires a huge leap of faith. Scientism has become the religion of the secular humanists. “Scientists” themselves are their high priests. University professors are their evangelists. Intellectuals (i.e. Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens) their theologians. 

Those who are not sure (Agnostics). At least atheists take a stand. Agnostics believe there may or may not be a God. By extension, they would believe there may or not be an afterlife (an eternal life). I don’t understand someone that puts even a small probability on an eternal life, not taking the time to studying some way of spending that eternal life in a good place, just in case. I have heard very intelligent people admit that the scientific explanation is absurd, but still call themselves agnostic. What is the alternative?

Those that know, or think they know, there is a god or many gods. However they don’t know the Triune God. They don’t know that the only way mankind could know the glory of God, the grace of God, and the love of God was for the Son of God to remain truly God, while at the same time becoming truly man, and die in our place for the forgiveness of our sins.

Those involved in the occult. 
Mediums, sorcerers, witches, Satanists, Luciferins, and many other cabalistic groups practice the occult. These individuals know the difference between good and evil and choose evil. They have the most dangerous world view of all. 

My world view can be summed up as follows:

The Word Made Flesh

We confess the mystery and wonder of God made flesh and rejoice in our great salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord.
With the Father and the Holy Spirit, the Son created all things, sustains all things, and makes all things new. Truly God, He became truly man, two natures in one person.
He was born of the Virgin Mary and lived among us. Crucified, dead, and buried, He rose on the third day, ascended to heaven, and will come again in glory and judgment.
For us, He kept the Law, atoned for sin, and satisfied God’s wrath. He took our filthy rags and gave us His righteous robe.
He is our Prophet, Priest, and King, building His church, interceding for us, and reigning over all things.
Jesus Christ is Lord; we praise His holy Name forever.

What is a Christian worldview?

Every worldview, Christian and non-Christian, deals with at least these three questions:

1) Where did we come from? (and why are we here?)

2) What is wrong with the world?

3) How can we fix it?

A Christian worldview answers these three questions biblically: 1) We are God’s creation, designed to govern the world and fellowship with Him (Genesis 1:27-28; 2:15). 2) We sinned against God and subjected the whole world to a curse (Genesis 3). 3) God Himself has redeemed the world through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ (Genesis 3:15; Luke 19:10), and will one day restore creation to its former perfect state (Isaiah 65:17-25). A Christian worldview leads us to believe in moral absolutes, miracles, human dignity, and the possibility of redemption.
