A Christian Worldview

A “worldview” is the “big picture,” the “way of understanding reality.” A “Christian worldview,” is a Biblical worldview. The Bible leads us to believe in moral absolutes, miracles, the value of human life, and the opportunity of redemption.

The Christian is God’s creation (Genesis 1:27 - … God created man in his own image…), and was originally designed to govern the world (Genesis 1:28 - … the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over…) and have fellowship with Him (Revelation 4:11 - … for thy pleasure…created.; I John 1:3 - … our fellowship is with the Father…).

The problem is that  man sinned against God (Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned…) and by so doing subjected the whole world to a curse; this includes nature (Genesis 3:14). In his fallen condition, man fails to make decisions that are based on the Bible.

The fall of man and resulting curse, made it necessary for God Himself  to redeem the world through the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ (Luke 19:10 - For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.)

God will one day restore creation to its former perfect state (Isaiah 65:17 – For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.)

So a worldview is comprehensive, it affects every area of life: from money to morality, from politics to art. True Christianity is more than a set of ideas to use at church; Christianity as taught in the Bible is itself a worldview. The Bible never distinguishes between a “religious” and a “secular” life. Jesus proclaimed Himself “the way, the truth, and the life.” See the world through Christ and the Bible.
