We thought we’d start the week off with one of Graham’s questions (thanks for leaving such great ones to think about!):
Is it possible to have a Christian worldview and not be a Christian?
This debate (while not new) came up in full-force several years ago when WORLD hosted a writing contest for fiction told from a Christian worldview, but not necessarily what we think of as “Christian” fiction. A lot of the stories written were stories of redemption, but not ones in which the name of Jesus was typed out within the page. Many folks commenting on the stories cried, “Fowl!” saying that the “worldview” stories were no different than good moral stories or ones in which many other religious worldviews could be told from.
What’s the difference between something that explicitly shares the gospel and something that maybe doesn’t (in so many words), yet still points toward a Christian way of thinking?
Do you think you can hold to a Christian worldview yet not be a Christian?
