Truths without The Truth. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Psychology professor Jordan Peterson and Orthodox Jew Ben Shapiro have become well-known for their pushback against Cultural Marxism, which seeks to topple biblical Christianity in order to enforce a utopian world of social justice.
Peterson and Shapiro speak some truths, but Christians should be wary of too much influence by their worldview that mixes some biblical truth with flawed human reason.
Let’s be reminded from 2 Peter 1 that, “God’s divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.”
How to view those who espouse truths without the Truth? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
There is pushback against the ever-increasing totalitarian impulse of the Left, which seeks to redefine what God has established regarding marriage, sexuality, gender, individuality, and freedom of belief and speech, punishing or “de-platforming” those who dare dissent.
Leading the pushback are thought leaders such as Jordan Peterson, Ben Shapiro, and Dennis Prager, who influence millions of followers. All espouse degrees of truth, but none actually believe in “the truth”—Jesus Christ.
Christians can learn from them, but let’s remember that only Jesus and His Word are “the way and the truth and the life.”
What is the worldview of Evangelicals? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Ligonier Ministries released their 2018 State of Theology survey which examines what Americans believe about a spectrum of theological questions.
It’s not surprising the general population’s responses contradict a biblical worldview, but when more than half of Evangelicals agree that people are good by nature and God accepts the worship of all religions, we have a major problem.
We need to heed what Paul told to Timothy: “Guard what has been entrusted to you, avoiding … opposing arguments of what is falsely called “knowledge”—which some have professed and thus gone astray from the faith. 1 Timothy 6:20-21
What should we learn from the Pilgrims? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
The Pilgrims, who miraculously established the early American colony at Plymouth in 1620 and celebrated the first Thanksgiving with local Indians in 1621, were a subgroup of the Puritans, who believed the Church of England needed purifying in doctrine and practice from Roman Catholic influence.
The Pilgrims fled persecution in England for Holland, eventually making their historic voyage to America for religious freedom and economic opportunity.
Two things Christians can learn from the Pilgrims are their steadfast trust in God’s rule over the affairs of life and their willingness to separate from compromise.
