As Christians (true followers of Christ) we are challenged with secular worldviews that bombard us every day. Followers of Jesus should have a worldview that God has – we need to train ourselves to see all things through the eyes of God. How do we do that? By adapting a biblical worldview, based only on the infallible Word of God. We can never do this without first coming to a belief that the Bible is God’s revelation to mankind. When we believe that the Bible is 100% true, inerrant, & unchanging, then the Scriptures become the framework or lens by which we understand ABSOLUTE & ETERNAL TRUTH.
