Hope in the Heartland
Gracepoint Church, Peabody
A biblical worldview and an unbiblical worldview cannot coexist together in peace. Each is diametrically opposed to the other. And yet we live in a culture that desperately wants to merge both into one comfortable mass. The logical fallacies created by such a merger are vividly displayed on a daily basis.
For example, most of us are horrified and furious at the murder of another human being, especially a child. But why the indignation? “Because,” we rightfully reply, “the child was so innocent.” True, but honest contemplation requires that we ask how and at what point in time did that child — or any human being — come to possess that innocence. Our outrage is understandable, but where did that sense of right and wrong come from?
“Of course, it comes from God,” someone might declare. But which God? Is it the God of the Bible? But how can our society claim to believe in the God of the Bible on one hand and call Him a liar on the other? He says that He created the world in six days, but our society says that is not true.
Our culture wants to resolve these issues by proposing a compromise; sounds harmless on the surface, but it is deadly. Not only is it deadly, it’s impossible. To compromise biblical truth is to deny its character, which then destroys its essence.
The view you take is important … because what you see is what you get.
