Assessing your your worldview is very important. A worldviews is the hidden framework by which we live, the lens through which we see the world. Every one has one whether they are aware of it or not so it is very important to know whether your worldview is accurate or not. The following are some thoughts on how to find out.
All of us have some kind of worldview or philosophy of life. It may be a carefully reasoned position, or an organic entity that we grew into (or up in). In any event it can be helpful to examine the elements of our worldview and put them to the test. Truth should survive the test.
I recently picked up a book by Kenneth Samples A World of Difference: Putting Christian Truth-Claims to the Worldview Test. Kenneth Samples is a senior research scholar at Reasons to Believe (RTB) and lectures in the MA program in Christian Apologetics at Biola University. He is a philosopher and theologian by training – with an MA in Theological Studies from the Talbot School of Theology at Biola.
In chapter 2 of his book Samples suggests a series of nine tests that can be used to critically consider the elements of one’s worldview. (pp. 33-37)
