What’s Your Viewpoint?
Pastor Terry Wilcox
Your view is determined by where you .
In Philippians 3:18-19 Paul identifies God’s and their future.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SECULAR AND BIBLICAL WORLD VIEWS
- A mind set on earthly values
The world says, “Take pride in your sin.”
The world currently worships science/technology.
Scientific theories are disingenuously taught as fact, and the general public accepts them as truth.
- A Biblical worldview requires and practice.
Colossians 3:2 AMP
Being spiritually minded is to practice looking at earth from heaven’s point of view.
Remember that Philippi was a Roman colony in southern Turkey and Roman citizenship was of enormous value at that time in history.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE SPIRITUALLY MINDED
- Their names are in the . Philippians 4:4
- They obey heaven’s laws
Citizens of Philippi were governed by Roman law, not law.
Act 16 tells of Paul using his Roman citizenship when Philippian officials beat him and Silas and imprisoned them.
- They are loyal to the cross of Christ.
The world loves Jesus – until you as per the Bible.
“The cross of Jesus Christ is the theme of the Bible, the heart of the gospel, and the chief source of praise in heaven. The cross is proof of God’s love for sinners and God’s hatred of sin. The cross condemns what the world values.” – Dr. Warren Wiersbe
- They are for Jesus. Philippians 3:20-21
There is awesome in the present of a future hope.
Looking at life on earth from the point of view of eternity with God results in great joy!
