The Worldview Test Blog Post

Humans have 50,000 thoughts every day. Out of those, 80% are and 95% are reoccurring. The sum of our thoughts is our worldview, that worldview impacts our lives. We all have one but probably don’t realize it. If we don’t fight to have a spiritual worldview we will default to our flesh.
The Bible says that there is truly only one worldview. Jesus says in John 14:6 that “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” We have to choose that worldview though, it doesn’t come naturally.

One of the biggest issues Christians face, however, is that we think categorically rather than comprehensively. In order to think comprehensively we need to take the Bible for what it says in all areas, not just the ones we like. Thus, we need to test every worldview to ensure that it conforms to Scripture.


1.  A worldview must stand up to the test of logical consistency.
     A solid worldview must have claims that adhere to one another.

2.  A worldview must stand up to the test of empirical adequacy.

     There are thousands of finds that support the truths of Scripture. The greatest of these claims is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. All other religions fail to stand up against archeological evidence.

3.  A worldview must stand up to the test of answering the existential questions of life.

      Christianity alone answers every major question in life from how we got here to what happens when we die.

Colossians 2:8  - See to it that there is no one who takes you captive through philosophy and empty deception in accordance with human tradition, in accordance with the elementary principles of the world, rather than in accordance with Christ.

This verse shows that all truth belongs to God, meaning we need to base ourselves on this truth, not our emotions or feelings.

With these components it’s important to know how to conduct a personal worldview test.
     •  Do I consistently take my thoughts captive by running them through the Christ-centered worldview?
     •  Do I consistently live by God’s truth or do I live by my own?
     •  Do I consistently check my emotions to the truth?
     •  Do I consistently reflect Christ’s greatness in all I say, do, and think?
     •  Do I consistently reap the blessings of obedience?
Never forget that the only way to experience the blessings of life is by living God’s way.
