Title: WORLDVIEW: WHAT IS IT?


1
WORLDVIEW WHAT IS IT?
  • Dr. Jobe Martin
  • www.biblicaldiscipleship.org
  • www.evolutionofacreationist.com

2
PROVERBS 1412
  • There is a way which seemeth right unto a man,
    but the end thereof are the ways of death.
  • (DECEPTION)

3
  • The worldviews of Satans World System are all
    based on deception!

1 CHRONICLES 1232
  • ... the children of Issachar, which were men
    that had understanding of the times, to know what
    Israel ought to do the heads of them were 200
    and all their brethren were at their
    commandment.
  • KJV

6
COLOSSIANS 28
  • BEWARE LEST ANY MAN SPOIL YOU THROUGH PHILOSOPHY
    AND VAIN DECEIT, AFTER THE TRADITION OF MEN,
    AFTER THE RUDIMENTS OF THE WORLD, AND NOT AFTER
    CHRIST.
  • KJV

7
  • There is Biblical Christianity and then there are
    various worldviews.
  • The study of worldviews ends up a comparison and
    contrast of true, Biblical Christianity against
    all of the deceptive choices of worldviews that
    Satans world system has to offer.
  • What do I believe about life and all of its basic
    building blocks?
  • Where can I find the Truth?

8
  • Who determines what is true
  • Man
  • Or
  • God?

9
JOHN 8 32
  • And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall
    make you free.

10
JOHN 1717-19
  • Jesus said
  • 17 Sanctify them through thy truth thy word
    is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world,
    even so have I also sent them into the world. 19
    And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they
    also might be sanctified through the truth.

11
PSALM 11911
  • Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might
    not sin against Thee.

12
EPHESIANS 613-18
  • 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of
    God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil
    day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand
    therefore, having your loins girt about with
    truth, and having on the breastplate of
    righteousness 15 And your feet shod with the
    preparation of the gospel of peace 16 Above all,
    taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be
    able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
    17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the
    sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God 18
    Praying always with all prayer and supplication
    in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all
    perseverance and supplication for all saints

13
SWORD OF SPIRIT WORD OF GOD
  • The word sword of Ephesians 617b is the word
    for the offensive and defensive weapon of the
    powerful Roman soldier.
  • The word for word (of God) is not logos it is
    Rhema which literally means the sayings.
  • Gods spoken Word is our offensive and defensive
    weapon in the midst of the supernatural battle
    surrounding us. We are to speak Gods Word into
    the fabric of lifethat means we must hide it in
    our hearts first.

14
CREATION EVOLUTION
DATA FOSSILS, LIVING THINGS SAME FOR BOTH
THEISM God of the Bible Creator,
Inventor, Designer, Sustainer, Redeemer
ATHEISM No God Accidental, Non-directed, Random,
Chance, Mindless processes
WORLDVIEW GLASSES DETERMINE CONCLUSIONS
15
Even if all the data point to an intelligent
designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from
science because it is not naturalistic.
  • Scott C. Todd, (Kansas State University
    Immunologist) Nature, September 30, 2000,
    Letters to the editor.

17
THE BATTLE OF CREATION VS EVOLUTION IS REALLY THE
BATTLE FOR THE GOSPEL.
  • G. Richard Bozarth writes (The Meaning of
    Evolution, American Atheist, Sept. 20, 1979, p.
    30)
  • Christianity has fought, still fights, and will
    fight science to the desperate end over evolution
    because evolution destroys utterly and finally
    the very reason Jesus earthly life was
    supposedly made necessary. Destroy Adam and Eve
    and the original sin, and in the rubble you will
    find the sorry remains of the Son of God.

18
  • If Jesus was not the Redeemer that died for
    our sins, and this is what evolution means, then
    Christianity is nothing.
  • G. Richard Bozarth
  • Atheist Bozarth understands this issue much
    better than the average Christian!

19
See The Defenders Bible, Dr. Henry Morris
20
Everyone believes by FAITH in something
eternal!!!!!
  • ETERNAL
  • GOD
  • ETERNAL
  • MATTER
  • (energy)

?
BY FAITH BECAUSE NO ONE WAS THERE!
21
SO WHAT ARE THE BIG ISSUES?
  • Where do matter and energy come from?
  • How did reproducing life appear?
  • Do mutations generate new life forms?
  • What does the fossil record prove?
  • Evolution Does fossil man exist?
  • Is there evidence for a global flood?
  • Are transitional forms still missing?

22
SO WHAT ARE THE BIG ISSUES?
  • Is radiometric dating based on facts or
    assumptions?
  • Do animals display morals?
  • Do animals possess the ability to talk, write,
    create, invent, sin, possess virtues, worship,
    pray, serve God?
  • Where do music and harmony come from?
  • Have you gone to the zoo and seen three
    chimpanzees singing in harmony?

23
Is It the Bible or Evolution?
  • BIBLE
  • God created all - inorganic organic
  • All created in 6 days
  • Creation is completed
  • Oceans before land
  • 1st life on land
  • EVOLUTION
  • Godless chance processes did it all
  • Millions of years
  • Unending Evolution
  • Land before oceans
  • 1st life in ocean

24
Do you believe the Bible or unproven evolutionary
theory?
  • BIBLE
  • Earth before sun and stars
  • Fruit trees before fish
  • Birds and fish created on the 5th day
  • Birds before insects
  • EVOLUTION
  • Sun and stars before earth
  • Fish before fruit trees
  • Fish evolved millions of years before birds
  • Insects before birds

25
Deep inside do you believe God or evolutionary
theory?
  • BIBLE
  • Birds before reptiles
  • Man before rain
  • Man before woman
  • Light before sun
  • Plants before sun
  • Man from dust
  • EVOLUTION
  • Reptiles before birds
  • Rain before man
  • Woman before man
  • Sun before light
  • Sun before plants
  • Man from primate

26
Do you trust Gods Word or mans evolutionary
theories?
  • BIBLE
  • Man originally a vegetarian Gen 129
  • Fixed, distinct kinds of plants and animals
  • Adams sin the cause of death
  • Romans 512
  • EVOLUTION
  • Man originally a meat eater
  • Plants and animals are constantly evolving
  • Death existed long before man ever evolved

27
  • The way of evolution seems so right to so many
    people, but it begins and ends by, with and in
    death.
  • We Christians must submit so-called science to
    the Bible and not submit the Bible to so-called
    science.
  • Our ideas do have consequences.
  • Our assumptions really do determine our
    conclusions.
  • Both Creation and Evolution are faith-based
    religious systems.

28
ATHEISTIC EVOLUTION ASSERTS BY FAITH THAT
  • There is no Creator/Designer God,
  • And, therefore, that purposeless,
  • Non-directed,
  • Accidental,
  • Mindless, Chance, Random processes over millions
    of years produced the universe and everything
    animate and inanimate in it.
  • The Big Bang created space and time?

29
What shall we name this one?
30
  • What is the most accurate way to believe within
    the realm
  • of the visible and the invisible, the temporal
    and the eternal, the seen and the unseen?
  • Which worldview deals with reality with the most
    accuracy?

31
WHAT IS A WORLDVIEW?
  • Your worldview is your basic belief system.
  • Your worldview is the position you take regarding
    the answers to the major questions in life such
    as
  • Does God exist and is He Good?
  • What can be known for sure?
  • Who am I why am I here where am I going?
  • What do I value what is important to me?
  • Is there purpose and direction to life?

EVERYBODY HAS A WORLDVIEW
  • Your worldview is your basic set of beliefs.
  • Your worldview is the position you hold in the
    foundational issues of life.
  • What are the issues that construct the basic
    building blocks of life (and your worldview)?

Theology Philosophy Ethics Biology Psychology
Sociology Law Politics Economics History
36
  • Theology
  • Philosophy
  • Ethics
  • Biology
  • Psychology

All of these 10 areas are sacred! All are
Biblical!
37
  • Theology
  • Philosophy
  • Ethics
  • Biology

  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Law
  • Politics
  • Economics

ART MUSIC MATHEMATICS PUT ALL OF THIS TOGETHER
AND YOU HAVE CULTURE of a WORLDVIEW.
41
  • Culture is the corporate display of the
    predominant worldview of a group of people. This
    can be shown at the national or state or city or
    village or school or church or family level of
    society.

42
THE CULTURE OF A WORLDVIEW INCLUDES
  • Art
  • Music
  • Foods
  • Clothes
  • Religion
  • Entertainment
  • Etc., etc,. etc., etc.

2 CORINTHIANS 105
  • CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS (arguments,
    speculations), AND EVERY HIGH THING THAT EXALTETH
    ITSELF AGAINST THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD, AND BRINGING
    INTO CAPTIVITY EVERY THOUGHT TO THE OBEDIENCE OF
    CHRIST.
  • KJV

45
1 PETER 313-15
  • 13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be
    followers of that which is good? 14 But and if ye
    suffer for righteousness sake, happy are ye and
    be not afraid of their terror, neither be
    troubled 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your
    hearts and be ready always to give an answer to
    every man that asketh you a reason of the hope
    that is in you with meekness and fear.

46
ACCORDING TO JOSH McDOWELL, BARNA RESEARCH GROUP,
PEW RESEARCH CTR.
  • We are witnessing The Last Christian
    Generation. (Josh McDowell)
  • Only 1/3 of church-going teenagers say the
    church will play a role in their future lives.
  • According to pollster George Barna 63 of teens
    do not believe Jesus is Gods Son.
  • 60 believe all faiths teach equally valid
    truths.
  • 51 do not believe Jesus rose from the dead.
  • 66 do not believe Satan or the Holy Spirit exist.

47
  • 93 of all youth have lied to a parent.
  • 75 of Christian and non-Christian youth have
    cheated on a test.
  • 66 of all youth have physically hurt someone.
  • 70 of churched teens believe there is no
    absolute moral truth.
  • This is called Moral Relativism.
  • Barna research reports 98 of professed
    born-again youth do believe in Christ, but they
    do not reflect Christ-like attitudes or actions.
  • Does Satan believe in Christ?

48
THE VALUES OF 18-25 YEAR OLDS
  • 81 say getting rich most important goal in life
  • 51 say becoming famous most important goal
  • 30 say helping people in need is a goal
  • 22 say goal of becoming a community leader
  • Only 10 say goal is to become more spiritual
  • So what is the goal of most of todays younger
    generation in USA? They want to become rich and
    famous!

49
  • In other words, for the Christian youth there is
    a disconnect between knowing Truth and
    practicing Truth.
  • John 321
  • But he that doeth truth cometh to the light,
    that his deeds may be made manifest, that they
    are wrought in God.

50
WE ARE LOSING 57-88 OF CHRISTIAN YOUTH AFTER
FOUR YEARS OF COLLEGE!(published figures)
  • Friends with Campus Crusade for Christ tell me,
    If we dont get the Christian kids within the
    first six weeks of their freshman year of
    college, weve lost them to the competing
    worldviews.
  • How do we lose them?

51
WE CANNOT DEFEND THE FAITH!
  • Where did Cain get his wife?
  • How did Noah get all the animals on the ark?
  • Arent Christians really polytheists?
  • Wasnt the Flood of Noah a local flood?
  • Arent the days of Genesis long periods of time
  • Hasnt science proven the universe is billions of
    years old?
  • Isnt starlight millions of years old?
  • Didnt dinosaurs go extinct 60 M. years ago?

52
WE CANNOT DEFEND THE FAITH!
  • The Council of Nicaea altered the Bible.
  • Jesus was married to Mary Magdalene.
  • Jesus and Mary had children.
  • King Constantine removed the references to
    goddess worship from the Bible.
  • The Bible has been translated so many times there
    is no way it could be the Word of God.
  • Who made your God, Where did your God come from?

53
THE EVOLUTION OF MAN
54
WORLDVIEW THINKING IN THE HISTORY OF THE U.S.A.
  • Christian Theism Personal God
  • Young Universe Creation
  • Traditional Deism Reduced God
  • Old Universe Theistic Evolution
  • Secular Humanism Dead God
  • Darwinian Atheistic Evolution
  • Pagan Mysticism/Metaphysical Naturalism I am
    God/All is God/There is no God
  • Evolution is god, Harry Potter is God

55
ARE WE SUBMITTING TO THE AUTHORITY OF GODS WORD?
  • For example Harry Potter is a wizard.
  • Leviticus 1931 Regard not them that have
    familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to
    be defiled by them I am the LORD your God.

56
DEUTERONOMY 1810-14
  • There shall not be found among you any one that
    maketh his son or his daughter to pass through
    the fire, or that useth divination, or an
    observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,
    Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar
    spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all
    that do these things are an abomination unto the
    LORD and because of these abominations the LORD
    thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
    Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God. For
    these nations, which thou shalt possess,
    hearkened unto observers of times, and unto
    diviners but as for thee, the LORD thy God hath
    not suffered thee so to do.

57
  • Are we submitting to the authority of the Bible
    in every area of our lives?
  • Or are we submitting to, and incorporating into
    our lives, more and more of the folkways and
    mores of the false, anti-God and popular
    worldviews of Satans deceptive world system?

58
ROMANS 121, 2
  • I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the
    mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a
    living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
    which is your reasonable service. And be not
    conformed to this world but be ye transformed by
    the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what
    is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will
    of God.

    Harvard University as an Evangelical Christian
    College
  • 1691 John Locke, Essay on Human Understanding
    (Root of French Revolution)

61
1805 Harvard goes Unitarian (Jesus is .
not God denial of the
Trinity)
  • 1839 Horace Mann (a Unitarian) establishes
    government-sponsored education (Public Education)
    in Mass.

63
1925SCOPES TRIAL
  • Atheist Clarence Darrow gets William Jennings
    Bryan to admit that he did not know where Cain
    got his wife and that he did not know how long
    the Genesis 1 days were, but they could be
    millions of years.
  • Darrows question You think those were not
    literal days?
  • Bryans answer I do not think they were 24 hour
    days. Bryan departed from Biblical authority
    and students now reap the penalty.

64
1925SCOPES TRIAL
  • 1925 opened the floodgates of popular opinion
    (evolution and millions of years) versus BIBLICAL
    AUTHORITY and the Humanists came out of the
    closet.
  • By 1929 the first Humanist church was established
    and America was into the Great Depression!
  • Could the God of the Bible have been judging
    Americas departure into evolutionism from
    BIBLICAL AUTHORITY?

65

69
SWITCH
70
  • What are some of the anti-Biblical worldviews
    promoted by the god of this world, Satan, that
    are popular on the campuses of the world?

  • Philosophy
  • Ethics
  • Biology
  • Psychology

  • Politics

ART MUSIC MATHEMATICS PUT ALL OF THIS TOGETHER
AND YOU HAVE CULTURE
72
SATANS WORLD SYSTEM SAYS
  • There is no right or wrong!
  • There are no absolutes!
  • Everything is relative!
  • Whos to say!
  • Whatever!

73
FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG!
  • The major assumption behind this sentence is that
    the person saying it is claiming he or she is
    right in saying that there is no right or wrong!
    We have a statement that negates itself.

74
FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • THERE ARE NO ABSOLUTES!
  • This sentence is intended to be an absolute
    statement. If there are no absolutes, then this
    sentence is not absolute and it negates itself
    and means nothing!

75
FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • WHOS TO SAY?
  • This sentence intends to silence someone who is
    taking a position. In other words, You have no
    right to say that! This negates itself, if no
    one has a right to take a position, then no one
    has a right to say Whos to say? because that
    is taking a position!

76
FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • EVERYTHING IS RELATIVE!
  • The authorial intent of this sentence is that it
    is an absolute statement. If everything is
    relative, then this sentence is part of
    everything and is itself relative. Then it
    negates itself.

77
WORLDVIEWS CLASH
  • The ethics of Christianity teach moral absolutes.
    Some things are always right and some things are
    always wrong.
  • The ethics of the Humanist worldview is called
    Moral Relativism. Nothing is always right and
    nothing is always wrong. It all depends on the
    situation.

78
EXAMPLE ETHICS OF HUMANISTS IS MORAL RELATIVISM
  • Moral Relativism is the idea of the Humanists
    that there are NO ABSOLUTES
  • If a professor teaches that there are no
    absolutes, a pertinent question is Are you sure
    there are no absolutes, Professor?
  • Professor Yes, there is no such thing as an
    absolute, everything is relative.

79
Student Are you absolutely sure,
Professor?
  • Prof. Well arent you a clever student! I will
    admit that there is one absolute and that is that
    there are no absolutes.
  • Student Could there be two absolutes?
  • Prof. NO! Student Are you sure?
  • Prof. Yes, of this I am sure!
  • Student Are you absolutely sure?

80
MORAL RELATIVISMSome things to as the
Professor
  • Is it a moral absolute that it is wrong for a
    student to murder their professor?
  • Is it a moral absolute that the mass killings of
    Hitler were wrong? 911
  • Is it a moral absolute that we should not
    torture babies for fun?
  • Is it a moral absolute that the murder of
    young at T. Sq., in China was wrong?

81
MORAL RELATIVISM HOMOSEXUALITY IS AN ALTERNATIVE
LIFESTYLE
  • WHAT DOES THE GOD OF THE BIBLE SAY? Fellow
    Christians have you become confused on this
    issue? There should be no confusion here!
  • Genesis 1313, Homosexuality is sin and
    wickedness!
  • Genesis 1820, Homosexuality is grievous sin!
  • Genesis 197, Homosexuality is wicked!

82
Leviticus 1822, Homosexuality is an
abomination.
  • Deuteronomy 2317-18, Homosexuality is an
    abomination to the Lord of Hosts.
  • 1 Kings 1424, Homosexuality(sodomy) is an
    abomination.
  • Romans 124, Homosexuality dishonors your own
    body.
  • Romans126, Lesbianism is a vile affection.

83
  • Romans 126b Lesbianism ...is against nature.
  • Romans 127, Homosexuality is unseemly
  • Romans 128, Homosexuality is the fruit of a
    reprobate mind.
  • 1 Corinthians 69, Effeminate (male prostitutes
    NIV) and abusers of them- selves with mankind
    (homosexuals NAS) shall not inherit the kingdom
    of God

84
WORLDVIEW IDEAS HAVE CONSEQUENCES AND ITS
ASSUMPTIONS DETERMINE CONCLUSIONS
  • You interpret what you see based on what you
    already believe (assume).

85
ASSUMPTIONS DETERMINE CONCLUSIONS
  • When talking with an atheist, dont tell him/her
    how stupid they are for not acknowledging the
    existence of God, but ask him/her Why do you
    believe in Atheism?
  • What evidence did you find that convinced you
    that God does not exist?

86
  • Is there any kind of evidence about the reality
    of God that I might share with you that you might
    consider?
  • You do not claim to know everything about
    everything, so could God possibly exist in the
    sphere of things that you do not know?
  • This same Atheist may tell you that language has
    no inherent meaning.
  • This is called POSTMODERN DECONSTRUCTIONISM.

DECONSTRUCTIONISM
  • Simple Def. Language means what it means to
    youno absolute meaning.
  • Ask a Deconstructionist Well, if language has
    no inherent meaning then do your statements mean
    anything?
  • Prof., if words have no inherent mean- ing, then
    why should I buy your textbook or listen to your
    lectures? Does a red stop sign have any meaning
    for you, Professor?

88
DECONSTRUCTIONISM IS A PART OF POSTMODERNISM
  • Postmodernism is a worldview.
  • Postmodernists believe that truth is created by
    the life story of the individual.
  • A Postmodernist might say, I have my truth and
    you have your truth.
  • In other words in a certain sense you create
    your own reality. No absolute truth.
  • Quite similar to New Age in this respect.

  • Humanists, Marxists, etc., say God is dead, or
    Man is God.
  • Postmodernists agree with Humanists and Marxists
    that God is dead, but go one step farther and
    say of any piece of literature, art or music The
    author is dead!
  • If the author is a product of his/her time,
    culture, language, etc., and he/she is deadthen
    it is impossible for the reader of their text to
    get into their head and understand their
    intentions.
  • There is then no authoritative interpretation of
    any text. The meaning is determined by the reader
    of the text!

91
Bill Honsberger, honzl_at_msn.com says
  • What then replaces the authors intent,
    unknowable to us all? Well what is left is
    different versions of what is called reader
    response theory. What this means is that the
    reader of the text brings to the text their
    communitys values, language games, experiences,
    ethical concerns or lack thereof.

92
Bill Honsberger, honzl_at_msn.com says
  • The question then for example is not What was
    the Apostle Paul trying to say when he speaks
    about propitiation in Romans 3?, but rather
    What do I/we think Paul was saying based on our
    communitys values and concerns. So one might
    answer (and they have) that as a lesbian,
    feminist community our understanding of the Bible
    is based on our values and understanding and we
    say that Paul is a homophobic, sexist,
    patriarchal evil white man, who was seeking power
    over us with his claims to truth.

93
Bill Honsberger, honzl_at_msn.com says
  • I think there is a direct connection between
    Nietzsches death of God and the Pomo writers
    death of the author. In both cases there is a
    denial of any authority (no truth giver) which or
    who sits above that of the autonomous human (the
    singular man in Existentialism and the community
    of humans in PostModern circles) and therefore
    all we are left with is the much tamer opinion or
    perspective. This is easily dis-missed since all
    have perspectives and no per-spective is any
    closer to an alleged truth than any other.

94
THE BIBLE IS OBJECTIVE, CERTAIN TRUE TRUTH!
  • Postmodernists claim that there is no objective,
    certain, clear, authoritative truth.
  • Notice that they must use words that are clearly
    understood and objective and authoritative to
    make their claim.
  • Postmodernists disconnect from reality.
  • The ultimate end of postmodern thought is that
    the Bible has no meaning of its own.

95
POSTMODERNISM PENETRATES CHRISTIANITY VIA THE
EMERGING CHURCH.
  • The Emerging Church movement (and Emergent
    Church, USA) claims to be exiting Modernism.
  • Modernism is seen as a synonym for the
    Enlightenment thought of 17th -19th century
    Europe.
  • Enlightenment, now called Modernism has been an
    obstacle to church growth, so says the
    evangelists of the Emerging church

96
  • The Emerging Church claims that Modernism
    (European Enlightenment Thought) was concerned
    with
  • Truth
  • Certainty
  • Individualism
  • Colonialism
  • Objectivity
  • Ethical absolutes
  • And a host of other evils.
  • Postmodernism rejects all of the above!

97
  • The Emerging Church is rapidly moving toward the
    Mother Catholic Church.
  • Communion is now called the Eucharist.
  • Incense is burned to enhance worship.
  • Stained glass is projected for mood.
  • Lights are dimmed.
  • Candles are lit.
  • The Bible is de-emphasized.
  • Techniques of Pagan mysticism are promoted.

98
HEBREWS 138-9
  • 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day,
    and for ever. 9 Be not carried about with divers
    and strange doctrines.

99
GALATIANS 67-8
  • 7 Be not deceived God is not mocked for
    whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
    8 For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the
    flesh reap corruption but he that soweth to the
    Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.

100
  • The cure for the problems in The Church (of
    historical Christianity), according to prominent
    Emerging Church writers, is to adapt to and
    accept the worldview and values of the
    predominant postmodern culture.
  • In other words, to minister to the postmodern
    culture we Christians must, to a great extent,
    live out the postmodern value system ourselves.
    We must become all things to all people.

101
HANG ON A MINUTE.
  • 1 Corinthians 922
  • To the weak became I as weak, that I might
    gain the weak I am made all things to all men,
    that I might by all means save some.
  • Is the Apostle Paul saying in this verse that
    he would live out the Postmodern lifestyle to win
    postmodernists to the Gospel?

102
I am made all things to all men,
  • Is Paul saying, I will become an alcoholic to
    minister to alcoholics?
  • I will become a drug addict to minister to drug
    addicts.
  • I will become a fornicator to minister to
    fornicators.
  • I will become a heretic to minister to
    heretics.
  • I will deny the absolute Truth of the Bible to
    minister to Postmodernists.

103
  • It is unfortunate that the phrase all things to
    all men (1 Cor. 922) has been used and abused
    by the world and made to mean what Paul did not
    intend for it to mean. Paul was not a chameleon
    who changed his message and methods with each new
    situation. Nor was Paul a compromiser who
    adjusted his message to please his audience. He
    was an ambassador, not a politician! Wiersbe, W.
    W. 1996, c1989. The Bible Exposition Commentary.
    "An exposition of the New Testament comprising
    the entire 'BE' series"--Jkt. Victor Books
    Wheaton, Ill.

104
1 Corinthians 88-13
  • But meat commendeth us not to God for neither,
    if we eat, are we the better neither, if we eat
    not, are we the worse. 9 But take heed lest by
    any means this liberty of yours become a
    stumblingblock to them that are weak. 10 For if
    any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat
    in the idols temple, shall not the conscience of
    him which is weak be emboldened to eat those
    things which are offered to idols 11 And through
    thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for
    whom Christ died? 12 But when ye sin so against
    the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye
    sin against Christ. 13 Wherefore, if meat make my
    brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the
    world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.

105
  • The primary purpose of Pauls not taking full
    advantage of his Christian liberty was that he
    might win the more. He deeply believed that he
    who is wise wins souls (Prov. 1130) and was
    willing to do anything and to sacrifice anything
    to win people to Jesus Christ. As far as his
    rights were concerned he was free from all men,
    but because of his love for all men he would
    gladly limit those rights for their sakes. He
    had, figuratively, become a slave to all. He
    would modify his habits, his preferences, his
    entire lifestyle if any of those things caused
    someone to stumble, to be offended, or to be
    hindered from faith in the Lord. MacArthur, J.
    1996, c1984. 1 Corinthians. Includes indexes.
    Moody Press Chicago

106
I am made all things to all men,
  • What Paul means by this statement is that he will
    voluntarily restrain himself from certain
    freedoms he has in Christ so as to not offend a
    weaker brother!
  • He is not saying that he would become a
    Postmodernist in order to witness to a
    Postmodernist!
  • Paul would not support the Emerging Church.

107
POSTMODERNISTS CLAIM
  • There are no truths which apply to all of us.
  • There are no absolute moral standards.
  • There are no absolute ethical concerns.
  • There is no God.
  • There are personal opinions.
  • There are personal perspectives.
  • See the writings of Nietzsche, Derrida, Lyotard,
    Ricouer, Foucault, Rorty, Baudrillard, etc.
  • Most Postmodernist thinkers are/were
    disillusioned Marxists.

108
POSTMODERNIST RICHARD RORTY
  • I might have written an account of how even
    atheists like myself are impressed, improved and
    morally instructed by reading Pilgrims Progress.

BABOOPENQUAT?
110
  • Disillusioned Marxists became PostModernists and
    now gain strength through Multiculturalism and
    its stepchild, Political Correctness, which is
    rightly labeled, Cultural Marxism.
  • Marx and Lenin taught that, given the chance,
    European workers would overthrow capitalist
    governments and replace them with communism.
  • But after the Russian revolution of 1917 the
    Western European workers did not support the
    Communist revolution or ideas.
  • Why not?

111
  • Christianity and its moral and ethical absolutes
    was the roadblock to the expansion of Marxism.
  • This roadblock was noticed by two Marxist
    theorists in 1919 Italian, Antonio Gramsci and
    Hungarian, Georg Lukacs.
  • These two men decided that the spread of
    Communism could only be accomplished if Western
    Christian culture was destroyed.
  • Rev. Jesse Jackson Hay, hay, ho, ho Western Civ.
    has gotta to go!
  • So Lukacs introduced sex education into the
    public schools of Hungary,1919, believing that if
    children knew more about those things their
    lust for it would overpower their Christian
    morals!

112
  • So Gramsci and Lukacs laid the groundwork to
    change communism from economic terms (ownership
    of private property is evil) into cultural terms.
    (tolerance, sex ed, drug ed, etc.)
  • Then in 1923 at Frankfurt University in Germany
    the Institute for Social Research was
    establishedThe Frankfurt School.
  • The Frankfurt School moved to New York City in
    1933 when Hitler came to power.
  • Theorists like Wilhelm Reich, Eric Fromm, Max
    Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, etc.

113
  • The Frankfurt School invented Critical Theory
    which had the goal of demonizing all traditional
    institutions such as family, fatherhood,
    patriotism, Bible-believing churches, etc.
  • The Frankfurt School published Studies in
    Prejudice which taught that anyone who believes
    in traditional Western Christian culture is
    prejudiced, a racist or sexist or fascist
    or is mentally unstable.
  • Mixing Freud with Marx, they perfected the
    technique of psychological conditioningthus, for
    example, TV shows Homosexualsnormal.
  • TVChristians are crazy, intolerant fools

114
  • For example see The Humanist magazine, Nov/Dec
    1987
  • Featured cover article Christianity and Mental
    Health A Psychotherapist looks at how
    Christianity may harm mental health, by Dr.
    Wendell Watters.
  • The picture on the cover is of a church with a
    person on the psychiatrists couch and an
    all-wise-looking psychiatrist doing the
    counselling.

115
  • Herbert Marcuse, working with Hollywood friends,
    became a leading evangelist of Cultural Marxism
    (Political Correctness) especially on the
    university campuses of USA.
  • In his book Eros and Civilization, he argued
    that by freeing sex from any restraints, we could
    elevate the pleasure principle over the reality
    principle and create a society with no work, only
    play (Marcuse coined the phrase, Make love, not
    war). Marcuse also argued for what he called
    liberating tolerance, which he defined as
    tolerance for all ideas coming from the Left and
    intolerance for any ideas coming from the

116
  • Right. In the late 1960s Marcuse became the
    chief guru of the New Left, and he injected the
    cultural Marxism of the Frankfurt School into the
    baby boom generation, to the point where it is
    now Americas state ideology.
  • The next conservatism should unmask multicul-
    turalism and Political Correctness and tell the
    American people what they really are cultural
    Marxism. Its goal remains that Lukacs and Gramsci
    set in 1919 destroying Western culture and the
    Christian religion. see Wm. Lind, Cultural
    Marxism The Schwarz Report, vol. 46, No. 4, p 4.

PSALM 197-9
  • The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the

  • The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the

FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG!
  • The major assumption behind this sentence is that
    the person saying it is claiming he or she is
    right in saying that there is no right or wrong!
    We have a statement that negates itself.

120
FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • THERE ARE NO ABSOLUTES!
  • This sentence is intended to be an absolute
    statement. If there are no absolutes, then this
    sentence is not absolute and it negates itself
    and means nothing!

121
FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • WHOS TO SAY?
  • This sentence intends to silence someone who is
    taking a position. In other words, You have no
    right to say that! This negates itself, if no
    one has a right to take a position, then no one
    has a right to say Whos to say? because that
    is taking a position!

122
FOUR FORBIDDEN SENTENCES!
  • EVERYTHING IS RELATIVE!
  • The authorial intent of this sentence is that it
    is an absolute statement. If everything is
    relative, then this sentence is part of
    everything and is itself relative. Then it
    negates itself.

123
ACCORDING TO BARNA
  • Teenagers are only mirroring adult attitudes,
    96 of whom do not reflect the attitudes or
    actions of Jesus. We are not living the faith we
    profess.
  • So what do we all need to do?

124
2 CORINTHIANS 135

  • 5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith

    ye be reprobates?
  • NAS
  • Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith
    examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this
    about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in
    youunless indeed you fail the test?

125
  • So what do we all need to do?
  • We need to examine ourselves to see if we are
    truly in the Faith (saved by faith in the shed
    blood and death of Lord Jesus and His bodily
    resurrection from the dead, Romans 109).
  • Examine ourselves to decide what is the
    predominate influence in our lives. Is it the way
    of the world or the way of the Word of God?
  • What worldview do we actually live out in our
    normal, daily lives and routines?

126
WORLDVIEW GLASSES DETERMINE CONCLUSIONS
  • The worldview ideas of Creation or Evolution have

THE GOD OF THE BIBLE IS OUT!
  • It is not that the methods and institutions of
    science somehow compel us to accept a material
    explanation of the phenomenal world, but on the
    contrary, that we are forced by an a priori up

ROMANS 128-32
  • And even as they did not like to retain God in
    their knowledge, God gave them over to a
    reprobate mind, to do those things which are not
    convenient not proper Being filled with all
    unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness,
    covetousness, maliciousness full of envy,
    murder, debate, deceit, malignity whisperers,
    backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud
    boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient
    to parents, Without understanding,
    covenantbreakers, without natural affection,
    implacable, unmerciful Who knowing the judgment
    of God, that they which commit such things are
    worthy of death, not only do the same, but have
    pleasure in them that do them.

  • When we as a nation, a people, depart from the
    authority of Gods Holy Word, the Bible, starting
    with the book of Genesis, and we accept
    evolutionary thought and theory (matter is all
    there is, we are evolving animals, the earth is
    billions of years old), all manner of mischief
    and evil creep into our country and into our
    culture!
  • IDEAS HAVE CONSEQUENCES

  • We must return to our loving Heavenly Father and
    submit to the truth and authority of the Word of
    God The Bible!

JOHN 319-21
  • And this is the condemnation, that light is come
    into the world, and men loved darkness rather
    than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For
    every one that doeth evil hateth the light,
    neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds
    should be reproved discovered, exposed. 21 But
    he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his
    deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought
    in God.

  • Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and

SATANS DECEPTION
  • Replace Biblical Creation with millions of years
    and evolution, and, next, it is easy to get God
    out. (Evolution we can be here via evolution
    with no need for God.)
  • When evolution is in and God is out, the world,
    the flesh and the devil rule and Satans
    deception is complete, in all its rebellion.
  • The rebellion begins in the home Pride and
    selfishness rule (example husbands dont lead,
    children know better than parents how to run
    their lives, etc.).

169
SATANS DECEPTION
  • If evolution is true then Jesus is not the
    Creator.
  • If Jesus is not the Creator then He does not have
    the authority and right to be the Savior.
  • If Jesus is not the Savior, then the Bible is not
    true.
  • If the Bible is not true, then let us eat, drink
    and be merry for tomorrow we die.
  • If tomorrow we die, then all we have is the lust
    of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride
    of lifewhich is of the world. 1 John 216

WHEN GOD IS OUT, ATHEISTIC HUMANISM IS IN!
  • Education is the most powerful ally of Humanism,
    and every American school is a school of
    Humanism. What can the theistic Sunday Schools,
    meeting for an hour once a week, and teaching
    only a fraction of the children, do to stem the
    tide of a five-day program of humanistic
    teaching? Charles Francis Potter

    and Schuster), 1930

A RELIGION FOR A NEW AGE
  • The battle for humankinds future must be waged
    and won in the public school classroom by
    teachers who correctly perceive their role as the
    proselytizers of a new faith a religion of
    humanity that recognizes and respects the spark
    of what theologians call divinity in every human
    being. These teachers must embody the same
    selfless dedication as the most rabid
    fundamentalist preachers, for they will be
    ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom

    the newthe rotting corpse of Christianity,
    together with all its adjacent evils and misery,

    finally be achieved.humanism will emerge
    triumphant. It must if the family of humankind is
