Can You Have Your Own World View?

I wrotenov24 earlier about people bashing Christians for being hypocrites as well as picking and choosing which verses of the Bible they believe. These people who claim such things assume that they have an entirely different world view than evangelicals.

Is this really so? Ask any of these people if lying, stealing, and dealing falsely is wrong and they’ll most likely agree. Homosexuals object to what God spoke in Leviticus chapter eighteen but they ignore the next chapter. Leviticus 19:11 (KJV) states, “Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.” If these folks think we pick and choose, they are actually the ones doing so.

And what about giving to the poor? These anti-Christian people fault believers for being unloving but look at what Leviticus 19:9 commands. “And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not wholly reap the corners of thy field, neither shalt thou gather the gleanings of thy harvest. And thou shalt not glean thy vineyard, neither shalt thou gather every grape of thy vineyard; thou shalt leave them for the poor and stranger: I am the LORD your God.” I’m sure many folks, including Christians, don’t know that’s in the Bible.nov24a

Leftists object to workers being mistreated but what does Leviticus 19:13 say? “Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.” In those days, people had no bank accounts or received unemployment payments so they needed to be paid daily in order to survive.

Additionally, what about being kind to disabled people? Leviticus 19:14 states, “Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD.”

The fact is that everybody is shaped by the society they grew up in. In the west, it’s the Christian ethos which has shaped our thinking. This is why we don’t have a cast system  as India does. Neither do we have classes of infidels as Islamic societies do. Western women aren’t chattel either but are equals with men. Many of the folks who condemn Christianity hold to its morals. Isn’t it hypocritical then to condemn the very religion which gives them so many benefits?

I’ll be covering this topic in my next book called You Think You’re Going to Heaven? Millions of people assume that all religions lead to God but they’re wrong. I hope my book shows them why and convinces them to change their minds.

    1. Thanks for your encouragement, Frances. I was once deceived by a phony teacher who claimed to get direct revelations from God Almighty. I didn’t know any better 45 years ago but I do now. I want to help others avoid being taken in by fakes. That’s why I’m writing and blogging about the real gospel and how to avoid bad teachers.
