What makes a Christian worldview superior to others?
As we noted in the last article, the Christian worldview is based upon the absolute truth of the Word of God, the Bible. Therefore, we do not need to be afraid of changing values, what is true and what is real will always be the same which will continue to give a firm foundation to those who believe. For example, just take note of the last 7 of the 10 commandments. To keep the Sabbath day as a day of rest, it has been well documented that when people work they are far more productive when they take a day of rest than when they try to continue to work all 7 days of the week. To honor one’s mother and father is to maintain the family unit as the most important one in a society and provides care for the aging parents as one generation passes on to make way for the next. To not commit murder, which is to not become angry and willfully take another life. Every society on earth has it written in their laws to not commit murder, this is known as common law. A society cannot exist if people are allowed to go around killing people at will. To not commit adultery is intended, once again, to keep the family in place as a loyal and loving unit where children can grow up with a mother and father. To commit adultery is a higher form of stealing from another person and a terrible demonstration of disrespect to one’s marriage partner. To not steal, lie about others or covet what others have, maintains a society that is honest, respectful of others and are pleased with the success of others rather than having a nervous breakdown trying to keep up. In just these simple things, it is easy to see a society that is far more conducive to peace and prosperity for everyone.
