The Christian worldview believes in the existence of a Sovereign and Omnipotent God. A Christian worldview recognizes the reality of an inherent sin, injustice, suffering, and evil existing “under the sun”. The Christian world view believes that mankind is totally depraved and needs a Savior to rescue them from bondage to sin.
Four Primary Principles
- Godly Submission (Ecclesiastes 8:1-7)
- Limited Power (Ecclesiastes 8:8-10)
- Faith and the fear of God (Ecclesiastes 8:11-13)
- Receive God’s Good Gifts (Ecclesiastes 8:14-17)
As Christians, we live by promises not by explanations. We live without answers to the “whys” and the “wherefores” of God’s sovereign actions. We have a commandment to obey and humbly submit to the authorities. God allows for civil disobedience only when man’s law is in direct conflict with God’s command.
