What is a Christian Worldview?

Now that you understand what a worldview is, I will now move on to answer the question, what is a Christian worldview.  A Christian worldview is a perspective on the world that is based on the Bible and is the only worldview that will generate a correct understanding of the world.  Someone who has a Christian worldview will examine everything in life in light of what God has revealed in His Word.   The vast majority of people, including many professing Christians, do not have a Christian worldview and therefore examine life through a faulty lens, resulting in wrong beliefs and wrong conclusions.   The preeminence of a biblical worldview comes down to the nature of the Bible itself.  The Scriptures are God-breathed (2 Timothy 3:16 2 Peter 1:21), inerrant (Psalms 12:6, 119:89, Proverbs 30:5-6), sufficient (1 Timothy 3:17, 2 Peter 1:3-4) and therefore a worldview that is based on the Bible will also have the same nature.   We must admit though that no matter how hard we try, our worldview will not be perfectly based on the Bible.  Until Jesus comes back there will always be things that we wrongly believe.  But even with this truth, it should be a major goal in our life to put aside unbiblical ideas and form a worldview that is distinctly Christian and therefore true.

The next article will be a practical application on how to form a Christian worldview.  You can read it here. Be sure to follow this blog on the left to get notified about new content.
