2. The Secular Worldview, is probably the fastest growing worldview because it is taught in all public education. I am simplifying all these worldviews to the basics. There are many variations for all them. The secular worldview would start with a presupposition there is no supernatural. There is no God, who is actively involved in the world. Life is focused on what we can see, experience and experiment on in a laboratory. The only truth, if there is such a thing is what can be discovered with science.
At the heart of this view is man is the center of all things. In our first review of Biblical Christianity’s World View, God is center of all things. In secularism, human government is the highest authority. We operate within the laws of the land but they can be based on whatever group has the most money or loudest voice.
Most in this way of thinking believe in some form of evolution as the origin of life. Most believe human life has evolved to the highest form of animal life but all animals are important and equal. Human’s have no right to view ourselves as superior. Individual sovereignty, human choice and freedom to express my individualism is at the heart of what fuels someone with this view.
Because there is no supernatural, no higher being to whom we are accountable and no after life, we can eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we will die. Life is a buffet with no real limits except not to hurt anyone else with your choices.
So, to compare these first two views it would be this: God is central; man is accountable Versus Man is central; be true to yourself.
There is one more view I want to share.
