Is the way you see your life and the world based in Truth?
Or, is it just a Mirage?
In a culture where everyone operates from the same basic beliefs, understanding the common worldview may not be too important. America used to be that kind of place—but is no longer. Our cultural environment is now dominated by non-Christian beliefs, and a knowledge of its various competing worldviews has become a critical tool for Christians who wish to express their faith and preserve their way of life in contemporary culture. It is the key to having the freedom to stand strong in our own faith, as well as to having the ability to effectively share Christ out in the world.
There is a reason this is so important. We live in a world where the majority believes it is okay for them to make up their own moral beliefs. With that as today's starting point, it is natural for people (them) to believe that their understanding of truth is right. But the fact is, truth exists in some actual way, and every belief that goes against that is simply false. What this means is that what most people in the world believe to be truth, is actually a mirage—and if we wish to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ, we need to become effective in dispelling that mirage.
