Controversial and Thought-Provoking Articles for the Savvy Christian

What is Worldview?

Posted By Denise Miller Holmes on Friday

Savvy Article #1107

Many people don’t know what worldview is, and the best way to describe it is that worldview is philosophy.

Philosophy is that mental filter you wear to see the world through. We all need to make sense of this world and have a way to tell right from wrong, wise from foolish. So, as human beings, we adopt a worldview.

The Bible offers both salvation and philosophy—God’s philosophy.  God says in the Word that His thinks differently than mankind. Isaiah 55:8,9  ”’For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,’ declares the LORD. ‘For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.’”

And it is because God’s thoughts are “higher” that we are to have God’s thoughts, not man’s. “See to it that no one takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception, according to the tradition of men, according to the elementary principles of the world, rather than according to Christ.” Colossians 2:8 NASB

There are two main benefits that come from adopting God’s worldview. When Paul wrote in Romans 10:2,  “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect,” he was saying that adopting God’s thinking changes us from the inside out. And that transformation enables us to replicate God’s will on this earth.

And not only does putting on God’s philosophical filter change us, it fights a war against evil and…changes the world.

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,..” 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5 NASB

It is the taking of our thoughts and submitting them to God’s worldview filter that fights evil and causes true change in people. What about you, are you ready to be transformed and change the world?

Here is a great exploration of worldview by the team that brought us The Truth Project.

    Because it’s so easy to allow societies worldview to enter our conscience, it’s critical to keep this is the forefront of our minds.

  2. Susan says:

    I agree with Jan.

    The world’s world view is everywhere and subliminal. It assaults all our senses … without us even knowing it at times. We need to be aware of the covert attacks and fill our minds with the mind of Christ.

  3. Thanks for the comments, ladies. I believe with all my heart that you are right. Worldview is something that people typically don’t think about and they develop a philosophy by default. Whatever seems right, that’s how they view the world. It is time to ground ourselves in the Word and develop the skills to see when we are being lied to by the world’s belief systems.

  4. Dena Netherton says:

    Every time I come back from visiting my siblings and extended family I am reminded of just how important world view is. We try not to talk about politics or religion, but nevertheless, their views are obvious by their lifestyle.
