This page will serve as a guide as we go through the book of Romans on Sundays starting April 18, 2021. What a time to be alive and serving the King of Kings! Gladly it is not without challenge, and one of those challenges is to keep a biblical (bible-first) worldview in a world growing more at odds with the authority and teaching of scripture. This should not surprise us because the scriptures themselves tell us this is what happens in an unbelieving world (Romans 1:18, John 3:19, 2 Timothy 3:8, Matthew 5:11-12). In fact, no one is neutral when it comes to God. The bible tells us that we are all born sinners, in rebellion to God, so not only is no one neutral, but we all have the disposition to turn away from the Truth of God to our own peril. The book of Romans is one of the best books to help us cultivate a biblical worldview.

Here are some action items and things we should be doing to cultivate this:

  • Set Christ apart as LORD and always be ready. (1 Peter 3:15)
  • Put on the full armor of God, and stand. (Ephesians 6:10-20)
  • Love the Truth, and live/share that Truth in Love. (Ephesians 4:15)
  • Be as wise as a serpent and gentle as a dove. (Matthew 10:16)
  • Do not get "puffed up" and have a "holier than thou" attitude. Remain humble. (James 4:6)

And as we do these things, might we also, "encourage one another daily, as long as it is called 'Today,' so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness." (Hebrews 3:13)

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it but because by it, I see everything else.” 
-C.S. Lewis

What is a Worldview?

A "worldview" is defined as, 'a particular philosophy of life or conception of the world.' It is shaped at the core of what you believe is real, or what reality really is. Everyone has a worldview whether they realize it or not, and it impacts ultimately what they do and who they are.
