Here is another sort to Christian worldview with David every person's worldview is based on something that has a source or maybe even many sources.

It could be a little of this a little that it could be your educational background could be your upbringing you could be someone who just bases everything on the science of the scientist or the experts or maybe you get your news from CNN and MB MSNBC. You wonder why people think the way they do.

That's can be completely different than a way a Christian or conservative. Thanks for the probably watching CNN mainstream media all the time and there is being fed stories that they want people to hear all the time. If you take that in.

That's what you're going to think maybe just human reasoning their own quote unquote common sense, how they form opinions on various issues of the day. To the contrary, when your source is the pure, the unadulterated the unchangeable the, without error. The inspired the never fails truth of God's word.

You will be able to discern spiritual truth from error and will be deceived with these issues of our day that may be art overtly mentioned in Scripture like Cove at 19 or vaccines or allegations of systemic racism and things like this. You remember the conversation that Jesus had with Pontius Pilate.

This was the source of truth, Jesus speaking with one who didn't even think truth existed is worth reading from John 18 therefore Pilate entered again into the petroleum is that Jesus trial and some in Jesus and said to him, are you the king of the Jews, Jesus answered, are you saying this on your own initiative or did others tell you about me Pilate answered.

I am not a Jew in my your own nation and the, the chief priest deliver you to me what have you done now dismissed up there for a second here is Pilate, the governor of the region and he doesn't seem to know very much about Jesus. Talk about misinformed and underinformed about someone who's been performing miracles and healing people and raising people from the dead.

He seemed to be very ignorant about who this person is standing in front of them. Pilate goes on to say in verse 37 so you are a king Jesus answered you say correctly that I am a king. For this I have been born and for this I have come in the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone was of the truth hears my voice and then to which Pilate responds with this forever famous line, Pilate said to Jesus, what is truth. In other words, he speaking to the source of truth, Jesus Christ, and he was to such a point in his life that he didn't even believe truth existed and it shows in the next. The rest of the. The passenger and when he had said this, he went out again to the Jews instead of them. I find no guilt in him, but you have a custom that I release someone for you at the Passover. Do you wish that I release for you the king of the Jews, Jesus. So they cried out again saying that this man but Barabbas. Now Barabbas was a robber. Pilate had political power, he was likely probably quite well educated to have the position he did. He was sophisticated for his day, but he was a fool, and he couldn't think straight. He could make wise decisions. He couldn't discern truth from error when the embodiment of truth was standing there right in front of him. How does someone get to such a point will someone gets to such a point by not regarding or not adhering to the three pillars that gives a person the ability to know truth from error in those three pillars are this you have to know who God is. You have to know who man is and you have to know how man can be made right with this God through the person and work of Jesus Christ when you know those three pillars in your rock solid on them that extends out to discernment in all things souls go over the first one who God is, the entire Bible reveals who God is and if someone doesn't believe in God.

What does God say about that person. God calls him a fool. Psalm 14 one. The fool has said in his heart there is no God. Romans one says of the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them. God's made himself clearly known and says for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, the creation so that they are without excuse for even though they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened and here it is. Verse 22, Romans one professing to be wise, they became fools so anyone who believes that there is no God or disregards God or believes in a big bang evolution.

That's how we got here believes that morality is relative. God considers that person a fool not just ignorant but a fool, anything that comes out of the mouth of someone like this who doesn't believe in God has to be then suspect if they can't get this most basic point right then you cannot trust anything that comes out of that person's mouth because they are according to God's definition of fool. If someone doesn't believe in the God revealed in the Bible that person is really just like a boat adrift in the ocean.

They won't know what to believe they won't have the discernment because they can get the most fundamental thing right. The most obvious thing that God is made apparent to everyone that there is a creator over everything around us.
