TCW Minute: Truths Without The Truth (Week of Dec. 10, 2018)

2018-12-13T20:42:48+00:00 Dec 10, 2018|

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 […]

TCW Minute: Worldview of Evangelicals (Week of Dec. 3, 2018)

2018-12-03T11:53:20+00:00 Dec 03, 2018|

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 […]

TCW Minute: What to Learn from the Pilgrims? (Week of Nov. 26, 2018)

2018-11-30T12:26:48+00:00 Nov 26, 2018|

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 […]

TCW Minute: Lessons from the Revelation Churches (Week of Nov. 19, 2018)

2018-11-19T20:29:40+00:00 Nov 19, 2018|

Lessons from the Revelation churches.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

In Revelation two and three, Jesus gives commendations and warnings to seven historic churches in what is now modern-day Turkey.

No church is praised for its growth, programs, music, societal impact, social justice, or relevance to non-believers.

Instead, what Christ commends is faithfulness to God’s word, intolerance of false teaching, perseverance in suffering, and holiness, while warning against sexual immorality, worldliness, and loss […]

TCW Minute: Christ’s Message to the Church (Week of Nov. 12, 2018)

2018-11-13T10:52:56+00:00 Nov 12, 2018|

What is Jesus’ message to His church today?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

In the opening chapters of Revelation, Jesus gives messages to seven historic churches in Asia Minor.

Two of the seven received commendations for their faithfulness while five were warned to repent of their errant ways or face the consequences.

The church today would do well to heed Christ’s commands to these churches: to cling to sound doctrine, to be full […]

TCW Minute: Worldview Divide in the Mid-Term Election (Week of Nov. 5, 2018)

2018-11-09T09:46:55+00:00 Nov 09, 2018|

Worldview divide in the mid-term election.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Whether you are hearing this before or after the mid-term election, two realities remain the same.  The first is the worldview divide in America is wide.  Generally speaking, on one side there is Americanism represented by President Trump and Republicans and on the other is nearly Socialism represented by former President Obama and Democrats.

The other reality is that no matter […]

TCW Minute: Will You Be a Fool for Christ’s Sake? (Week of Oct. 29, 2018)

2018-11-02T12:13:46+00:00 Nov 02, 2018|

Will you be a fool for Christ’s sake?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

No matter how educated or how winsome or how accomplished a Christian is, the non-believing world will still view him or her as a fool.  That’s because, as the apostle Paul says, “the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing” (1 Corinthians 1:18).

But then he writes, “God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the […]

TCW Minute: How Can the Divided States of America Become United? (Week of Oct. 22, 2018)

2018-10-25T21:44:45+00:00 Oct 25, 2018|

The Divided States of America.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

We live in the most prosperous, powerful, charitable, advanced, free nation in history.  And yet, there is a level of aggrievement and division that has not been felt perhaps since the Civil War.

Whether the issue is race, gender, religion, sexuality, abortion, immigration, or political party, the worldview gulf between the sides seems too far to bridge.

The only hope for a unified […]

TCW Minute: What Is Speech Act Theory? (Week of Oct. 15, 2018)

2018-10-16T21:32:30+00:00 Oct 15, 2018|

What is Speech Act theory?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

The stated purpose of the recent Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel is to clarify the doctrines of God’s Word with regard to race, gender, and sexuality.

When asked about the Statement, one highly regarded pastor referenced Speech Act theory saying, “You can’t just analyze words by what they say, you also have to analyze words by what they do…What it’s […]

TCW Minute: Lessons from the Kavanaugh Nomination (Week of Oct. 8, 2018)

2018-10-08T14:03:34+00:00 Oct 08, 2018|

Lessons from the Kavanaugh nomination.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

After weeks of drama, including accusations of sexual assault, protests, and non-stop media coverage, the Senate narrowly voted to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

There are many lessons here.  One is that elections matter.  Imagine what kind of judge Hillary Clinton would have nominated had she been president.  Consider Kavanaugh’s chances of confirmation if Republicans hadn’t held a slight majority […]
