A Christian worldview outlined

A worldview is a coherent system of thought that shapes how a person understands the universe and covers all areas of life and academia. This is similar to wearing colored glasses that give a different tint to all you see. However, just as 2 + 2 has just one answer, there is just one worldview that fits reality correctly.

A Christian worldview is based on two facts: First, God exists. Second, the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is therefore Ultimate Truth. There is reasonable evidence for both of these facts which I will cover in the future. Here is an outline with links about the topics considered here. Some of these will be to this blog and some will be external links.

This first part is an outline of what many Christians have historically believed. I am planning on filling it in through a series of blog posts and pasting links here. This outline is an adaptation of the headings in The Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (1689).
