Biblical Worldview: Creation, Fall, Redemption examines science, the arts, government, gender, and history using the lenses provided by the biblical storyline of Creation, Fall, Redemption. Its goal is to encourage students to make positive and distinctively Christian contributions in God’s world. A faith-centered approach focuses on offense, developing a Christian worldview; defense, critiques of erroneous worldviews, occurs at appropriate places.
“Option 3: Don’t give in at all if someone contradicts Scripture, no matter how smart or how numerous the Steves are. Instead, argue back—lovingly and graciously, but powerfully and confidently—knowing that God’s reason for using the weak to shame the wise is ‘so that no human being might boast in the presence of God’ (1 Cor 1:29).” (Page 3)
“Hurting people sense that they need ‘spirituality,’ but Christianity is too exclusive and too demanding for them. And among cultural elites,* religion—especially Christianity—is thought to pose a threat to the social order. Those elites will let you have your religion if you really must—as long as you keep it out of politics and the laboratory. But the boundaries around religion keep shrinking ever tighter, squeezing it out of journalism, the arts, and education (in a process called secularization*).” (Page 3)
“People, in other words, don’t start off neutral. We’re all born knowing about God and His moral law at some level. Being an unbeliever requires many acts of willful suppression of the knowledge that God put inside us. People can’t claim ignorance of Him. They are morally responsible for what they know. Paul says, ‘They are without excuse’ (Rom. 1:20).” (Page 19)
“It’s not a mark of holiness that you can ‘handle’ worldliness and sin in your entertainment without being affected. It’s a mark of blindness; you are being affected.” (Page 114)
“if there’s a right way to run these things in the future God will set up for us, there’s a right way to run them now.” (Page 44)
