What Is A World View?
When one think of the phrase “World View” many definitions come to mind. World view for many
may mean that it is the framework of beliefs by which a person views the world around him. (Hindson and
Caner, The Popular Encyclopedia of Apologetics:) While many others may believe that it is the way we live
our lives and the traditions we hold valuable. I truly believe world view means the outlook we have on life,

17:3) "That they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." This

righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. I exist to seek God kingdom of
everlasting life.

wrong in the past, could be considered right in the present. But from a biblical worldview on
right and wrong we can answer through the revelation of the Holy Bible. (II Tim. 3:16) “All
Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for
training in righteousness”. Not only do Christians need to live a morale life, but they need to
know what the bible says about what is wrong and what is right. (Acts. 5:29) But Peter and the
apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men. As you can see, yes man has created
laws for humans to follow, but God has set his own laws for us before man was even created.
We as people has always at one time or another had the thought or the question about our
destiny. Destiny is something we all have in common and something we all as humans will face.
