Sunday School Class on Biblical Worldview in December 2013

A three-week Sunday School class on Biblical Worldview was held on December 8, 15 and 22. We compared the foundations and important elements of the Biblical Worldview with competing worldviews that are prevalent in our postmodern world – Islam, Secular Humanism, Marxism, New Age, and Post Modernism. Our worldview affects not just our theology and ethics, but also the way we think about science, philosophy, economics and many other areas of contemporary thought. This collection of convictions comprises a Biblical Worldview. We must be able to defend the Bible, Creation, and our Worldview.
