Every individual has a worldview whether they realize it or not. A person’s
worldview can be Christian, secular, or a combination of both. To fully understand
Christian Worldview it is important to understand what worldview means in general and
to also have an idea of what secular worldview means (Christianworldview.net). The
Bible states, “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and
mammon” (Matthew 6:24 KJV).
What is a Christian Worldview?
Matt Slick describes world view as “a set of presuppositions and beliefs that
someone uses to interpret and form opinions about his humanity, purpose in life, duties in
the world, responsibilities to family, interpretation of truth, social issues, etc. A
Christian should view all these things, and more, guided by the light that is shed upon
them by the Bible” (What is and why do). In simple terms, a worldview is the interaction
between what we believe about God and how those beliefs affect how we look at and
function in the world around us. It is how we make sense of the things that impact
The beliefs that people hold have a profound affect on how they set priorities, on
their sense of right and wrong, decision making, and behavior when interacting with the
world around them (Worldview.org). One’s worldview is formed by environment,
upbringing, education and the culture one lives in. Worldview is affected by the
booksone reads, the type of television one watches and movies one sees. For some,
perspective of the world is formed without thought or reason; they simply accept the
world around without question never forming an opinion of their own. All people live by
faith in something but not all people live by faith in God. It may be simply faith in
themselves, the government, money, their education or their job....
