Understanding the World War of Worldviews
Do you understand the World War of Worldviews? The Bible warns us: “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of the world rather than on Christ.”
The results of secular Humanism are written all over the pages of recent history: the revolutions, massacres and totalitarianism of Communism; the permissiveness and decadence of materialism; the pornography plague, the drug epidemic, the crime explosion, escalating inflation, the abortion holocaust, the AIDS and STDs pandemics, lawlessness and gender confusion. These are just some of the inevitable results of the moral anarchy of Humanism. Those who understand the ideas that rule the world will have the opportunity to influence the world of ideas.
Everyone has a “worldview”, a way of interpreting everything that happens in the world. The Bible has an explanation for the universe, but so do Secular Humanists, Evolutionists and New Agers. Each of these worldviews is founded on ideas. Ideas have far-reaching consequences. We see much of the world becoming worse because the Church is not practically involved. We need to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. We need to show the world that the Christian Faith makes a positive difference in every area of life. It is time to reclaim our Christian heritage and to demonstrate to the world that the Bible has the best answers to society’s most pressing problems.
“Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
