I. What Is A Worldview?
A. It is how we see and how we determine what is Reality
B. Different types of Worldviews
1. Naturalism – The material universe is all that exists.
2. Panthesim – Only the spiritual dimension exists. All else is illusion.
3. Theism – An infinite, personal God exists. He created a finite, material world. Reality is both material and spiritual.
4. Spiritualism and Polytheism – The world is populated by spirit beings who govern what goes on. Gods and demons are the real reason behind “natural” events.
5. Postmodernism – Reality must be interrupted through our language and cultural “paradigm.” Therefore, reality is “socially constructed.”
Ps 46:10, Isa 45:22, Isa 46:9, Gen 1:1.
