Christian Worldview & Apologetics
Whether we realize it or not, our beliefs affect the way we view all of life and reality. These beliefs, as a whole, can be called a “worldview” because they influence how we view ourselves and the world around us. When questions arise about life, death, relationships, or any issue our “worldview” helps us decide what we believe about the situation and how we should respond. A Christian worldview is a worldview grounded on truth as outlined in scripture. As Christians we are to have a “Christian worldview” because we want our beliefs and actions to be founded upon the Bible.
“Apologetics” is an area of study which uses faith and reason to defend why the “Christian worldview” makes sense and is the correct worldview.
Philippians 1:17 “…knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.”
