See how others view Christianity and Christians A worldview is the “big picture” view of the world, one that attempts to answer all the big questions of life: What is real? If there is a God, what is God’s nature? What is a human being? How can we know what is right or wrong?
Quickly compare a biblical, Christian worldview with several popular religious worldviews • Atheism – “There is no God.” • Pantheism – “God is all.” • Pan-En-Theism – “God is in all.” • Deism – “God is a distant creator.” • Finite God-ism – “There is a God, but He is limited.” • Polytheism – “There are many gods.” • Monotheism – “There is only one God.” • Biblical Christianity – “There is only one Triune God.”
Topics covered include • Is there are God? • What is real? • Where did “What’s Real” come from? • What is a human being? • Are humans basically good or evil? How bad is the flaw-if any? • Is it possible to know anything at all? • How do we know what is right and wrong? • What is truth? • What is evil? • Where do laws come from? • What happens to a person at death? • Can miracles happen? • What is the meaning of human history? • How do human beings get to know God, if possible?
