Practising A Biblical Worldview

The Bible is our primary source for Christian faith and practice. How exactly do we live out a biblical worldview?


What is Truth?

Despite the contemporary infatuation with relativism, Truth is absolutely based on the nature of God, and those who know this truth experience the glorious freedom of the children of God!


What Spiritual Authorities Exist?

An individual’s salvation impacts his eternal life, but also makes a difference to his family, neighbourhood, country, the creation and even the spiritual realm. Let us engage the battle by being prepared!


What Happens After We Die?

If you were to die today, do you know your eternal destination? Do you have an opinion on life after death, or are such the opinions of madmen? On the contrary, one’s informed opinions regarding such issues powerfully impact how we live each day. Which is why the question of what happens after we die is also an important foundation for a biblical worldview.


What is the Nature and Purpose of Humanity?

The pathway to abundant life is love, obedience and glory, but this is completely counter to all that our culture has taught us! The nature and purpose of humanity then is also an important foundational question for a biblical worldview.


How and Why Was the World Created?

Understanding the origin of, and the processes that sustain, our universe will go a long way toward helping us understand the impact of sin, forgiveness, truth and morality, etc. Thus, for developing a biblical worldview, one cannot dismiss creation as easily as some are prone to do.


What Is the Character and Nature of God?

If God exists, then what kind of being is He? Our beliefs and lifestyle are dependent on our understanding of the nature of God and his level of involvement in our lives. Therefore, this second question is vital in the foundation of a biblical worldview.


Does God Really Exist?

The first essential question for thinking like Jesus is, “Does God really exist?” The answer to this question is important because it establishes the foundation of one’s worldview, whether he believes in God or not. This sermon is part two in our sermon series, "Think Like Jesus".


The Essentials of A Biblical Worldview

The research of George Barna demonstrates that relatively few of those who claim to be followers of Jesus actually hold beliefs consistent with the Bible. How can we harmonise our own desire to know God with our desire to live as followers of Jesus?


A New Standard

There is much confusion in this world. As advanced as we believe we are, humanity still has much to learn. We do not all share the same beliefs, values, and lifestyles, as we are all trying to figure out how best to live in this world, with each other. Nevertheless, the commands of God are clear and the promises for following those commands are also clear, yet only available to those whose minds have been transformed and renewed (Rom 12:2).


Lord of the Sabbath

Every friend of Jesus can keep the Sabbath commandment by decelerating intentionally and often.


The Person of God Inspires

While you may be uncertain about it, at first, like Nicodemus, it is true nonetheless: You are a child of God if you are a friend of Jesus! You are a friend of Jesus if you obey his commands. If you obey his commands, with the help of the Spirit, then the life he promised —the free, full, and forever life— is yours and it is possible. Living that life, both now and forever, should make you sorry for the mistakes you make yet, like Isaiah, you will arise, forgiven and set free, to live your...


I Am the Real Vine

First a shepherd, then a vine. How are Jesus’ disciples to make sense of what he has in store for us? This is an important question because every person can live a life far better than we can imagine or achieve for ourselves. How? By depending on Christ in three ways.


When Spiritual Lows Threaten

The life of faith in Jesus and a Christian lifestyle is going to have ups and downs, spiritual highs and lows. The friends of Jesus succumb to danger areas because one’s mind has not been renewed. Despite this, we commit ourselves to being transformed, which is to allow the Holy Spirit to change the way we think. In the process, we discover the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God and learn how to act in every situation so we can seek good and avoid evil. The Bible readings assigned to...


The Good Life is Not Always Easy

Despite the effort of learning a new language for good and evil, the Good Life sounds like a good idea. Knowing how to name evil, so as to avoid it, does not diminish the presence and effect of evil on the friends of Jesus. Evil is the presence of corruption, malevolence and depravity in the world, opposed to God’s nature and will. Scripture stresses that evil is a force in its own right, rather than the mere absence of good, and describes its origins and the manner in which God deals with...


Becoming Fluent and Avoiding Self-Deception

To escape our captivity to sin, we must accept the truth of Jesus’ teaching and act accordingly. By seeking good and avoiding the evil of self-deception we will find the true freedom promised to the friends of Jesus. That is the Good Life! Only in avoiding evil will we find the power to resist temptation and seek the good we know we were created for.


Becoming Fluent and Avoiding Self-Importance

The story of The Temptations Jesus faced in the wilderness, at the hands of the devil, helps us identify some key elements in our confusion over good and evil. Where the first temptation reminds us to avoid self-indulgence, the second makes clear just how important it is to avoid self-importance so that we might live the Good Life promised by Jesus to his friends.


Becoming Fluent in the Good Life and Avoiding Self-Indulgence

Like ancient Israel, all of humanity before and after need a fluent speaker to show us what is right, good, true, and beautiful. We need someone to show us how to live the Good Life God always intended for us. Jesus is truly a fluent speaker. He taught and modelled the difference between good and evil so that we might come to know how to seek the good and avoid evil. Only when we listen to him will we truly know what is the good, pleasing and perfect will of God (Rom 12:2).


The Good Life: Learn its grammar

Every person should follow the wisdom of the Prophets and Apostles. Why? Because in the Beatitudes, Jesus acknowledged the commandments need to be understood broadly rather than specifically. To aid our understanding, the Prophets provided warnings when the people were not avoiding evil or seeking the good properly. Also, the Apostles provided guidance on how to the seek the good because the Good Life requires we seek the good and avoid evil. While this guidance is helpful, we must also...


The Good Life: Learn its vocabulary

Growing in faith and a Christian lifestyle is quite similar to learning a language. In this case, the commands of God provide the vocabulary, the Prophets and Apostles the grammar, and Jesus, being a fluent speaker, shows us how its done. Only when we listen to him will we truly know what is the source of the Good Life —the good, pleasing and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2). The Good Life is not always easy but is always better. The friends of Jesus have been promised the Good Life is...
