THOUGHTS ON THE LORD’S DAY
“Who is winning the battle for the moral high ground in your city?”
If someone were to ask you, “What is your worldview?” What would be your response? A worldview refers to a comprehensive perspective of the world using a personal bias.
Secular Humanism is a philosophy that embraces human reason, ethics, social justice and philosophical naturalism while specifically rejecting religious dogma as the basis of morality and decision-making.
This view provides the foundation for the worldview of those in the kingdom of darkness which has hijacked the business, government and educational communities in America. A Christian worldview is a comprehensive conception of the world system from a Biblical point of view.
Your personal worldview creates your reality of everything you believe. It determines your daily behavior and every decision you make. Even if you cannot clearly define your worldview, how you look at any situation is influenced by it.
Every worldview, Christian and non-Christian, must answer at least three questions. First, where did we come from and why are we here? Second, what is wrong with the world? Third, how can we fix it?
True Christianity is more than a religious ideology or a set of ideas on how to have Church. Christianity, as taught in the Bible, is itself a worldview. It’s a useless exercise to defend the Bible. It will defend itself if given the opportunity. If it could not, the secular humanist would not have gone to such great lengths to have it banned from our schools and public square.
The Bible never distinguishes between a religious life and a secular life. For Christians there is only one life regardless of where you live it. Jesus proclaimed Himself as the Way, the Truth and the Life in John 14:6. And, in doing so He became our worldview. Do not try to defend a faith you are not living, and do not proclaim a faith you cannot defend.
If you cannot articulate and defend your worldview, you are at the mercy of those who can. It’s not about winning the argument, it’s about giving a reason for the hope that resides in you.
”Sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear” 1 Peter 3:15.
Unless the Body of Christ in your city does that on a daily basis in their marketplace, your city will never be transformed. It remains the domain of the kingdom of darkness, that kingdom controls the gates of influence.
