The word “worldview” is not a mystical word nor is it something that is only for intellectuals and scholars. In fact, everyone has a worldview. We could represent the concept of a worldview in two general ways – it is an overarching umbrella under which our understanding of individual issues and topics fit, or it is a foundation upon which we construct our understanding of individual issues and topics. One’s worldview is either consistent or inconsistent. This means that the foundation we have established and the ideas we have do (consistent) or do not (inconsistent) match one another. Unfortunately, many people (probably most) who profess to be Christian have not taken time nor made an effort to make their worldview consistent. Francis Schaeffer noted, “The basic problem of the Christians in this country in the last eighty years or so, in regard to society and in regard to government, is that they have seen things in bits and pieces instead of totals.”
The first point that I would like to make about a Biblical (Christian) worldview is that it involves a total perspective on every aspect of creation and life on planet earth. It pertains to one’s individual character and behavior but also encompasses the operations of every social component and institution and every field of study. It has been commonly assumed that a Biblical worldview, Christianity or the kingdom of God is only concerned with things that we refer to as “spiritual” and that all other aspects of life lie outside the realm of “faith,” religion or spirituality, belonging to the “secular” realm or, even, in the minds of some, the devil.
It must be understood that recognizing an eternal, living, personal, intelligent Designer and Creator places all of creation under the realm of His ownership. Our task, therefore, becomes putting things in their proper place and dealing with them according to the intended design of the Designer. Consequently, instead of rejecting a particular realm or field, we are to correct its improper usage. This applies to all things.
