Worldview

What is Your Worldview?

It is my opinion that everyone has a worldview, a system of beliefs through which they see and process the world. Religion of some kind is probably the most popular lens to see the world through, but philosophy is also a common tool.

My worldview is a Christian one, it is the soil which I root my knowledge of right and wrong in. It is where I find guidance at certain crossroads in life and the way through which I try to better myself. Whenever I read a news article, learn something new about someone, meet someone new, hear a song on the radio, watch a movie, experience challenges as a parent, etc. I try to pass it through the filters that are my Christian beliefs. The fact I fail to do this properly sometimes, or even at all in some circumstances, does not negate the fact that Christianity is my worldview.

Since everyone has a worldview, please feel free to share yours in the comments. If you find it difficult to place a label upon it, then perhaps you could describe it. Do not let my Christianity keep you from being forthcoming, I am not looking for an opportunity to preach at you. I simply wish to make this type of subject less taboo to discuss, seeing as how it affects so many on such a deep level. How can we truly share ourselves with others if we are afraid to talk about our worldview?

    I would also label my worldview as “Christian”. One way this impacts my life is through a desire to help people, and why career-wise I’ve always found myself in the “helping” profession. It adds an extra layer of fulfillment in life to use my time, knowledge, and resources to share God’s love for others through service.

      Helping people is a great way to model the love of Christ. Even if it doesn’t motivate others to intrust their lives to God, it can at least show them that we Christians are not all talk.
