What is a Biblical Worldview?

Gary is interviewed by Jeremy Stalnecker on the topic of biblical worldview and thinking and acting biblically.

Alien worldviews have made their way to planet Earth bringing with them even greater devastation than that depicted in the fictional War of the Worlds. Today’s real-life battle is between the worldview of biblical Christianity where the infinite and sovereign God of the universe reigns and rules and the worldview of the many varieties of man-centered belief systems where finite and dependent creatures work to rule and reign independent of God.

Man-centered worldviews oppose the biblical worldview at every point. Truth is turned into a lie (Rom. 1:25); good becomes evil, and evil good (Isa. 5:20); darkness is substituted for light, and light for darkness (Matt. 6:23; John 3:19; Isa. 5:20); a “futile” and “depraved mind” (Eph. 4:17; Rom. 1:28) is preferred over a “renewed mind” (Rom. 12:2). “It must be emphasized that it is not just a question of the mental rejection of the truth, for what is involved is nothing less than the rebellion of the whole man, man in the totality of his being, mind, emotion, and will, against God. It is the refusal to give God the glory which is his due.”[1]

The Bible tells us that those who parade their alien, anti-biblical worldviews “are without excuse. . . . For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God, or give thanks” (Rom. 1:20–21). The rejection of the sovereign God of the Bible leads to a downward spiral that begins with perverse thinking and degenerates into corrupt action. What was originally designed to be straight, man has made crooked by suppressing the truth in unrighteousness (Deut. 32:5; Psalm 125:5; Prov. 2:15; 3:32; 14:2; 17:20; 21:8; Phil. 2:15).

Thinking Straight in a Crooked World
Thinking Straight in a Crooked World

The nursery rhyme ‘There Was a Crooked Man’ is an appropriate description of how sin affects us and our world. We live in a crooked world of ideas evaluated by crooked people. Left to our crooked nature, we can never fully understand what God has planned for us and His world. God has not left us without a corrective solution. He has given us a reliable reference point in the Bible so we can identify the crookedness and straighten it.

Gary is interviewed by Jeremy Stalnecker on the topic of biblical worldview and thinking and acting biblically. Christians must begin with the God of the Bible and what He has revealed. As the Sovereign Creator and Sustainer, God defines truth and reality for us. We merely listen and obey. But how does biblical truth get applied in everyday life?
