Who will form our children’s worldview?

By The Christian Post

Worldviews seek to answer ultimate questions, and therefore biblical worldview studies should be a major responsibility of churches.

Trigger warning: What am I about to share may cause terror, sickening repugnance, righteous indignation, and a heart flutter or two. In 1947 my first-grade public school teacher asked each Monday morning for us to raise our hands if we attended Sunday School. If so, we signed cards acknowledging our attendance, passed them in, and received a form of credit.

The consensus was that there is a linkage between what we learned in Sunday School on Sunday and what we learned in public school on Monday.

If churches now fail to take on worldview formation, other institutions are eager to fill the void. The worldview many of them will shape for the young is devoid of true ultimates — like God’s transcendence and relationship to the health of the nation.
