Have you ever noticed how different things look when you put on a pair of glasses? If you need them for vision correction, what was out of focus becomes sharp and clear. Well, the same is true with the way we think about the world around us. The rational lenses through which we view the world shape our thinking about it, determining what we call our world and life view—or more simply our worldview.
It is that worldview that shapes our understanding of everything we see in our earthly existence. For example, when you look at the world around you what do you see? Do you see order or chaos? Do you see mankind as being inherently good or corrupted by evil? Do you see the source of human knowledge as being natural or supernatural? When you look at our sin-sick world do you see despair or do you see hope?
The answers to all these questions come from your worldview. Dr. Kennedy speaks about the necessity of having a worldview grounded in truth in his message: “The Christian World and Life View.”
