By Greg Laurie
"I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else." - C.S. Lewis
Why do you see what you see? Why do you say what you say? Why do you think what you think? Why do you do what you do? There's a reason for it all, and it begins with your worldview. By the way, you already have one. Everyone does. And that worldview will determine everything about your life from the tiniest details to your ultimate destiny. In short, it's the way you see life itself. A worldview is like a set of lenses through which we see reality. Have you ever wondered how two people who grew up in the same town and went to the same schools and maybe even lived in the same home could end up seeing life from completely opposite points of view? It's because of their worldviews. Having a biblical worldview means that we look at life through the lens of the Bible. It is a way of seeing our world, and will impact every area of life from personal morality to how we handle money to whether we succeed in marriage to how we will vote in the next election. It is the belief that an all-knowing, all-loving, all-powerful, good and righteous God is in control of the universe and has an individual plan for each of our lives. And it is the firm assurance that He has revealed that plan to us in the pages of Scripture. In this book, pastor and author Greg Laurie draws on two of the most familiar and formational passages in all of Scripture: the Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. In 15 chapters, he shows us how to make sure our worldview is the right worldview, one that will help us navigate today's ups and downs and lead us into eternal joy at the end of our days.
