As a Christian, how do you view the world?
Do you view it Biblically, or some other way?
Do you interpret the world — facts, history, society — through the Bible, or do you interpret the Bible by the way of the world?
You know the global flood story of Noah as revealed to us in the Bible in the Book of Genesis. You have probably also heard of similar stories in other cultures. For example, the Epic of Gilgamesh or the Hindu flood story found in the Shatapatha Brahmana.
Do you conclude that those other stories prove that the Bible’s account is “just another flood myth”? Does that call into question your faith and trust in the Bible? Do you try to reconcile the Bible’s global account with what the modern world said must have been a “local” flood?
Or is it not surprising to you that other cultures had flood myths?
Meaning: you know that the flood is true, and that as descendants of Noah fell away into wickedness (as the Bible says they did), their minds became darkened. They formed other societies and cultures.
They lost the knowledge of the Lord their Creator, and the remnants of the details of the flood story in their culture became twisted in their depraved minds by their being out of communion with God.
The true account of the story is found in the Bible, God’s divine, special revelation of Himself to us. The other stories are all incomplete tales, corrupted over time as men turned to idolatry. But for us, the story is preserved.
This is an example of viewing the world, and interpreting the facts, Biblically.
Do you view right and wrong as defined by God and revealed to us in the Bible? Or do you use a different standard?
Do you agree when society around you says that abortion is a battle for women’s rights?
Or do you agree with God who commanded us not to commit murder, which would make abortion a crime and, therefore, never okay under any circumstances?
Do you feel one way, but know the truth in your heart to be otherwise?
Do you think the God of the Old Testament is different from the God of the New Testament?
Does reading any of this make you feel guilty?

This web site is about rebuilding your worldview — restructuring it to help you see the world and facts and history and the evidence of God’s eternal power and divine nature as clearly perceived throughout His Creation, which, being compromised, we tend to suppress in our unrighteousness. It won’t be the popular way, or the easy way:
Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul? (Matthew 16:24-26 ESV)
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge and wisdom (Proverbs 1:7, 9:10). Without the Lord as your foundation, you cannot gain true knowledge and wisdom. But if you give up the last of your resistance, your faith will be deepened. This is the path of the narrow gate:
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few. (Matthew 7:13-14 ESV)
Were you ever taught that the Israelites assimilated the stories of their neighbors into their own when writing the Bible? (They didn’t.)
