Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His 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. 2 Peter 1:2-3
It’s been said that “the most important thing about a person is their view of God.”
If you think about it, one’s view of God—from a high and holy reverent view of God based on Scripture to the atheist who rejects that God exists to every view of God in between—is the fundamental driver for how one thinks and lives.
For example, why wouldn’t an unmarried couple live together before marriage or why wouldn’t a mother encourage her son to be a girl if they don’t believe in the God of the Bible? After all, it seems reasonable that an unmarried couple should “try things out” before getting married. It seems reasonable that a boy who likes girl things “should transition to who he really is.”
Some might say “common sense” drives morality, but common sense is just the common or majority worldview at a given time. God’s will, on the other hand, is timeless, unchanging, and true.
This weekend on The Christian Worldview, we will discuss how theology determines morality and how this truth explains why we are where we are in America and the church today.
