Raising families in today’s world is a calling. We need to be sure that we raise our children with a Biblical worldview. We need to make sure we as adults have a Biblical worldview.
Worthy are you our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created. – Revelation 4:11
Foundations for Developing a Biblical Worldview:
Four Spiritual Pillars of a Biblical Worldview
- The Creation – Genesis Chapters 1 and 2
As His Image-Bearers:
*We are like God in that we are spiritual.
*We are like God in that we are moral.
*We are like God in that we are rational.
*We are like God in that we are creative.
*We are like God in that we are relational.
2. The Fall – Genesis Chapter 3 (Old Testament)
Sin led to our brokenness . . .
*Spiritually, our relationship with God is broken.
*Morally, we can no longer do what is natural.
*Rationally, we have difficulty discerning the truth, and in particular, it is impossible for us to discern spiritual truth.
*Creatively, we use our imagination and creative capacities to make idols and worship them instead of worshiping God.
*Relationally, we tend to love our self, and all other relationships are broken.
3. Redemption (New Testament)
*He is redeeming us spiritually. He has declared us righteous because of the work of His Son.
*He is redeeming us morally. We can now do good.
*Rationally, we can now discern the truth.
*Creatively, we can now use our imaginative capacities to worship Him.
*Relationally, we can know how to love others based on the love Christ has for us.
4. New Creation – Revelation
*Jesus will come again.
*He will bring a New Heaven and a New Earth.
There will be worshipers from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation
