Christian cultures all around the Western world are crumbling because we’ve strayed — ethically. We can rebuild the worldview that we’ve lost, but only if we first understand why and where we’ve strayed. Christ calls us to witness and persevere: “To him who overcomes and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations” (Revelation 2:26). By doing so, he will grant us increasing authority.
But that authority must begin with self-government and family government. Christians must become self-conscious about their worldview. They must realize when they are borrowing from pagan worldviews. We must look at the world the way the Bible tells us to.
All morality begins with God’s divine standard. To say that morality in business can be different from morality in the Bible is sinful. To say that morality in politics can be different from morality in the Bible is sinful.
This means, for example, that social welfare programs like Social Security and Medicare are immoral because they break one of the ten commandments: thou shalt not steal. Those programs are funded by State-sanctioned theft. A majority of voters got together and agreed to have the government act as their henchman to mug another group of voters. Just because it’s voted-upon theft doesn’t make it any less theft — and thus, sin.
We have larceny in our hearts. It must be purged.
The Bible gives us much reason to be hopeful about the future. The secular humanist worldview, which appropriated the Christian worldview during the Enlightenment (as well as elsewhere throughout history) is crumbling. Without a basis in Christ, it will tear itself apart.
We need to be there when it does so that we can pick up the pieces and restore hope and purpose to society.
But we won’t be entrusted with that task if we aren’t ready. This is why we must rebuild our Bible-based Christian worldview.
