Everyone Worships a ‘God’

Every worldview must begin with what we believe about God and how we might answer these questions:

  • Is there a Creator God, or does evolution guide all life?
  • If there is a God, what is He like?
  • What does He like? What doesn’t He like?
  • What does He say is right? What does He say is wrong?
  • Is He personally involved in this world, or not?
  • Are we accountable to Him; and if so, to what degree?

Even among those who claim to not believe in a god, it is impossible to live without one. Why? Because a god is simply defined as who or what occupies the central place of importance in your life.

Thus, a god can be you yourself, your car, your fashion statement, your favorite sports team; or it can simply be something that impassions you, such as money, sex, politics, the environment, or even your kids. God is whatever idea or entity we make the center of our life.

We may worship one—or many—gods in our lives. In other words, we may place several ‘gods’ on pedestals around which our lives revolve. This matters because most of our decisions will revolve around—and be dependent upon—the ‘god(s)’ we put on the pedestals of our life.

Our theology—our view of god—determines our religion, even if we say we aren’t religious. This is because a worldview is the same as an ideology or a religion: all are defined by the ideas we embrace and consider to be true and valuable.

The question is, who or what is the center of your life?

Who or what is your god? And will he/it lead you to prosper in life, or fail?

Watch this preview to get a sneak peek of how the Biblical Worldview of Theology compares with that of all other major religions as we contrast their ideas with one another and with reality.

Let’s see which worldview makes sense to live by—or not.
