Pastor's Sunday Sermon
May 21, 2023
A worldview is someone's picture of reality, their impressions of their surroundings.
We need to be careful to maintain a Christian world view and not let the world's view creepy in.
Every person's world view includes 3 common questions. The world has several opinions on each of these. Christians get our answers straight from the Bible.
Where did we come from?
This is a question where we as Christians have a very different view then the world's. If you believe in the Bible, Genesis tells us of the creation. The world seems confused with this because of darwinism and flawed carbon dating techniques.
What is wrong with the world?
For Christians this is a simple answer. Sin! For the world it can range from conservation theories to just accepting the fact that this is just how it is.
How do we fix it?
The world might say conservation or population control. But Christians know, The Bible tells us it is Jesus.
“See, I will create
new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind.
18 But be glad and rejoice forever
in what I will create,
for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
and its people a joy.
19 I will rejoice over Jerusalem
and take delight in my people;
the sound of weeping and of crying
will be heard in it no more.
20 “Never again will there be in it
an infant who lives but a few days,
or an old man who does not live out his years;
the one who dies at a hundred
will be thought a mere child;
the one who fails to reach[a] a hundred
will be considered accursed.
21 They will build houses and dwell in them;
they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them,
or plant and others eat.
For as the days of a tree,
so will be the days of my people;
my chosen ones will long enjoy
the work of their hands.
23 They will not labor in vain,
nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune;
for they will be a people blessed by the Lord,
they and their descendants with them.
24 Before they call I will answer;
while they are still speaking I will hear.
25 The wolf and the lamb will feed together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox,
and dust will be the serpent’s food.
They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,”
says the Lord.
