It can sometimes seem like there are more and more expectations placed on us and we find we can’t live up to any of them.
From a man’s perspective, we’re expected to be understanding husbands, perfect fathers, committed workers, reliable friends and so much more.
The pressure from each of those areas can be hard enough but when you put them all together and then add a spiritual aspect we really do need to know how to think through the issues that call for our attention.
My regular Wednesday morning guest on 98.5 Sonshine FM is Ross Clifford who is the Principal of Morling College in New South Wales and current President of the Baptist Union of Australia. Each week we chat about a range of issues relating to spirituality and belief.
Today we talked about constructing a Christian worldview. Obviously, it’s not only men who benefit from knowing what they believe and then living it out. We could all do with a better understanding of how to think through the issues that face us each day.
Do our beliefs really instruct the way we think about the world and how we live? If we have a strong world view we can walk confidently knowing that we have a framework which will define our priorities and our actions.
Ross talked about the new book A Spectator’s Guide to World Views: Ten Ways of Understanding Life. The book gives a fair assesment of a number of current world views such as New Age, Secular Humanism, Relativism and Postmodernism, while contrasting what they offer with a Christian world view.
