Evangelism/Spiritual Life Question and Answer Series: What are the Three Components of Biblical Worl

A Worldview is a pattern of ideas, habits, beliefs, and presuppositions, that shape the view of the world. A worldview is like a map. It guides you on how to navigate your life. A worldview answers the big question. For example, the questions be Why I am here? What is my purpose in life? What happens after I die? Why does God allow suffering in the world? A Biblical Worldview is a collection of Christians beliefs, habits, and assumptions that shape a Christian perspective on the world. Christian beliefs include the salvation message, the traditional view of marriage, eschatology, Christology, bibliology, and pneumatology. Eschatology is the study of the last things. Christology is the study of Christ. Bibliology is the study of the Bible. Pneumatology is the study of Holy the Spirit.

Worldviews are very important because a worldview shapes your perspective of the world. Having a Christian Worldview is the most important because it shapes your perspectives on the world correctly. A Christian Worldview is crucial to understand the big questions.

Why I am here? Under a Christian worldview, you are here because God fearfully and wonderfully made you in His Image, in his likeness.

What is my purpose in life? Through the Biblical lens, your purpose is to glorify God in everything you do, serve Him, and accept his gift of Salvation. Salvation is based on faith, not by works (Ephesians 2:8-9). Your purpose is to live holy like God is Holy. We are all made holy when we accept the gift of salvation.

What happens after I die? After you die, you would believe that you would have eternal life, which means that you live with God perpetually. Currently, once you accept the gift of salvation, you will receive the Holy Spirit.

Why does God allow suffering and bad things to happen? Due to the disobedience of Adam and Eve, sin entered the world. This sin nature causes bad things to happen to help. If you are suffering as a Christian and suffering persecution, that testing of faith develops endurance. We, as fallible Christians, do not know all the correct reasoning why God allows suffering and bad things to happen to Christians.

Therefore, Worldviews are very important because a worldview shapes your perspectives on the world and answers the crucial questions. A Christian worldview is important because it has the correct lens on the big crucial questions.

According to Jeff Myers & David A. Noebel, Christianity is “a theistic worldview centered on the person of Jesus Christ that derives it understanding of the world through the teachings of the Holy Bible” (Jeff Meyers and David A. Noebel. Understanding the Times. (Manitou Springs, CO: Summit Ministries, 2016), 28.) The three components of a Biblical Worldview are There is a God, the World is a Fallen world due to Sin, The Necessity of Jesus Christ to save us from our sin.

First, there is a God. The one true God is a Triune God. Triune means that the one true God is Three persons in God–God, the Father, God, The Son, and God, the Holy Spirit. There are all united and equal. They also have a relationship to. We see this unity in the Creation of the World. Genesis 1:1-2 (ESV) states, “In the Beginning, God Created the heavens and the Earth. The Earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” This verse indicates that there was a God and that God was three persons in one. The Tri-unity of God is clearer in Genesis 1:26 and Matthew 3:13-17. Genesis 1:26a (ESV) states, “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” This demonstrates the Triunity of God in Creation. The Triunity is also clear in the Jesus’s Baptism. Matthew 3:13-17 (ESV) states, “Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, to be baptized by him. John would have prevented him, saying, ‘I need to be baptized by you, and do you come to me?’ But Jesus answered him, ‘Let it be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.’ Then he consented. And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him; and behold a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” Matthew, former tax collector and now a disciple of God, was right to capture this moment because it helps us realize that God the father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit has a relationship and that God is Triune God. Also, God is Holy, meaning that God is perfect without error. Revelation 4:8b (ESV) states, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come. Not only is God perfect, but Jesus is Also perfect, and Jesus loves us. John 3:16a (ESV) states, “For God so loved the World.” 1 John 4:7-21 is an amazing passage on how much God loves us.

1 John 4:7-19 (ESV) states:

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this, the Love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation [The perfect Sacrifice] for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world. Whoever confesses that Jesus is the son of God, God abides in him, and He in God. So, we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him. By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgement, because as he is so also are we in this world. There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because He first loved us.”

However, we live in a fallen world which leads us to the next component of a Biblical Worldview.

The Second component is Everyone is born with a sin nature. Sin has crept into this world and wreaks havoc on men, women, and children in this world. Sin has caused us to live in Turmoil and has separated us from the Love of God. Sin is anything you think, say, or do that displeases God or makes God sad. Sin affects our actions, our attitudes, and our mental status. Sin has caused the United States to be in a Tumultuous time. Everyone is born with a sin nature. Jeremiah 17:9 (ESV) “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” Romans 3:23 (ESV) states, “All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.” Everyone has sinned. I have sinned, you have sinned. Everyone has sinned. The punishment of our sin is Spiritual death, meaning that we are separated from God. Romans 6:23a states, “For the wages of Sin is death.” Our Separation from God is like a big Grand Canyon, we cannot cross it without a bridge. Nothing can help us get into heaven except Salvation through Jesus Christ. This leads us to the Third Component of a Biblical Worldview.

The Third Component is The Necessity of Jesus Christ. Jeff Myers was correct when saying that Christianity is centered on the Person of Christ. Only the Perfect sacrifice of Jesus Christ can we have a relationship with God and once we have that relationship and believe in God, we are called Children of God. John 3:16 (ESV) states, “For God so loved the World that he gave us only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him, should not perish but have eternal life.” What an amazing Truth. Once we believe in God and call upon his name, we called Children of God, John 1:12-14 (ESV) states, “But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become Children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” Once we believe in Jesus Christ, We are given a new citizenship with God. Nobody can separate us from the Love of God once we accept this gift. Three passages are important to this statement–Ephesians 2:8–10,19, Romans 8:38–39, 1 Peter 2:8–9. Ephesians 2:8–10,19 (ESV) states, “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for Good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them…So, then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.” What an amazing truth! There is only one way to get into heaven and that is Through Jesus Christ.

Romans 8:38–39 states, “For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the Love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Nothing at all can separate us from the love of God. How amazing is that and what an important aspect to the Christian Worldview.

1 Peter 2:9–11 states, “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellences of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you have not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” One important and crucial component is the Necessity of Jesus Christ. Once we believe in Jesus Christ, we are no longer enslaved to sin, but we are children of God and have received mercy from all the bad things we have ever done.

These verses are important to realize to make sure that you understand the necessity of believing in Jesus Christ and how important it is in the Biblical Worldview.

These three components—There is God, The World is full of Sinners, and the Necessity of Jesus Christ––is all Important in the Biblical Worldview.
