Biblical Worldview Curriculum
A worldview consists of the core values and commitments a person has, which in turn influence all the rest of one’s beliefs and behaviors. Your worldview is what you use to evaluate the world around you and to make decisions about what you do.
But all worldviews are not equal. Conflicting worldviews cannot both be true; Christianity and non-Christianity cannot both be ultimately right. The worldview a person has really does matter because having a wrong worldview can have terrible consequences.
The biblical worldview is about viewing all of life the way God wants us to view it, the way God has communicated about life to us in the Bible. The biblical worldview can be summarized in a few sentences that simply reflect the basic Gospel message.
A worldview affects everything about a person’s life. The biblical worldview is about viewing everything—our friendships, careers, property, environment, interaction, ultimate responsibilities, even our homework—the way God views it and talks about it in Scripture.
