Every one of us has a world view; Christians should have a biblical world view. A world view is how we see life. It’s what drives our decisions, actions and emotions. It is the framework from which we view reality and make sense of life and the world. According to David Noebel, a worldview is “any ideology, philosophy, theology, movement or religion that provides an overarching approach to understanding God, the world and man’s relation to God and the world.” A world view affects your response to every area of life, philosophy, science, theology, economics, law, politics, art and social order. It drives everything.
Del Tackett has explained that “Someone with a biblical world view believes his primary reason for existence is to love and serve God.” We must develop a biblical world view which is based on the infallible Word of God. When you believe the Bible is entirely true, then you allow it to be the foundation of everything you say and do. When you have a biblical world view, the Bible and its teachings govern your life. Again, a world view encompasses every area – you can’t leave any facet out. Our world view tells us how to spend and deal with our money. It will even tell us how we should vote. We can no longer sit back and continue to vote for people who oppose the Scriptures. We should vote our biblical world view, for whatever candidate believes more closely to the Bible. If a candidate believes in abortion, homosexuality, or believes that getting into debt is a good thing, we should never vote for them.
Too many people think that being a Christian is picking and choosing what part of the Bible to believe in or not to believe. A biblical world view says that every area of my life and the decisions that I make will line up with the Word of God. What is your world view? Is it worldly or do you have a biblical world view? You get to decide.
