The Creationist Worldview

"For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he." (Proverbs 23:7)

None but the most radical libertarian is comfortable with the way things are in society. Much of the argument among politicians is over their "cure" for the problems that plague us. But this approach simply treats the symptoms, rather than going after the real cause of the disease.

We have abrogated the issues of human relationships to meaningless debates over techniques, programs, and economic distribution. We have reduced the universal human search for meaning to nothing more than a "fulfilling self-image"--whatever that means. We have encoded the Darwinian "survival of the fittest" with the New Age jargon of empowerment to "be all you can be."

Governmental leaders try to secure peace and prosperity. Educational planners attempt to resize or uplift the classroom environment, hoping that practical knowledge will "end poverty" or "break the stranglehold of crime." Business executives and consultants around the world strive for ways to eliminate employee problems and re-engineer the corporation. Religious clerics, teachers, and gurus stress everything from "positive thinking" to "seeker-driven" environments in their worship--all in an effort to lessen the impact of sin-filled hearts.

The various programs to redistribute income, provide free education, eliminate abortion, subsidize the arts, help the homeless--or whatever the focus--may provide some relief in the short run, but they will never "cure" the disease. It's like fighting the common cold. Medications are designed to relieve the symptoms, to make the disease less painful to bear, not cure the virus.

In biblical terms, the disease is sin, curable only by regeneration through the work of the Holy Spirit, which is made possible by the love of God the Father expressed in the substitutionary death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. In human terms, the disease is a naturalistic worldview, curable only by embracing a genuinely theistic worldview that acknowledges the Creator.

ICR's Creationist Worldview online program of study has been designed to address these complex issues and prepare kingdom saints to become part of the solution. If you have not yet seen the course outlines, check them out at www.icr.org/cw and discover for yourself how your prayers and financial support are contributing to the ultimate cure--the Creator Himself.
