A Biblical Worldview Has a Radical Effect on a Person’s Life

I found this article from The Barna Update quite interesting on one hand but no surprise on the other. Any truly redeemed Christian who has had an encounter with the Living God through His son Jesus knows this in their heart anyway. How can such an encounter NOT have a deep impact on our lives.

An excerpt:

One of the most striking insights from the research was the influence of such a way of thinking upon people’s behaviour. Adults with a biblical worldview possessed radically different views on morality, held divergent religious beliefs, and demonstrated vastly different lifestyle choices.
People’s views on morally acceptable behaviour are deeply impacted by their worldview. Upon comparing the perspectives of those who have a biblical worldview with those who do not, the former group were 31 times less likely to accept cohabitation (2% versus 62%, respectively); 18 times less likely to endorse drunkenness (2% versus 36%); 15 times less likely to condone gay sex (2% versus 31%); 12 times less likely to accept profanity 3% versus 37%); and 11 times less likely to describe adultery as morally acceptable (4% versus 44%). In addition, less than one-half of one percent of those with a biblical worldview said voluntary exposure to pornography was morally acceptable (compared to 39% of other adults), and a similarly minuscule proportion endorsed abortion (compared to 46% of adults who lack a biblical worldview).

They’ve done it before, they’re doing it now, and will do it again. The Islamists won’t hesitate to use lies, subterfuge, whatever it takes, to take down Israel and the West. If anyone with half a brain hasn’t figured out by now that this is a culture that has no intention of comprising with the infidel, then they are either simply ignorant of the facts or simply don’t want to know the truth.

As much as I hate this culture, I am – along with all Christians – commanded to love my enemy. It’s most difficult to do so when daily we see the butchery, lies and deceit that come from Islam.
