ARE YOU CONTROLLED BY FLESH OR SPIRIT? CHOSEN YOUR CORE VALUES?
“Mindless Christianity is not New Testament Christianity.” – John R. W. Stott. You have to think and pursue truth. God lets us dig and labor for our daily bread–likewise for our spiritual food. It is not all served to us on a silver platter. Dig.
A hungry man won’t refuse meat because it has bones in it. He removes the bones and receives the meat. Beyond the Christian faith, the competing world views have far more unresolved questions. A useful core values framework, aka world view, should have solid answers for the following four questions. (1) How did I get here? (2) Can there be meaning in my life or am I just an accidental glob in an uncaring universe? (3) What is the source of good and evil? (4) What happens to me when I die? -after Ravi Zacharias.
Do thinkers seek satisfying answers? Will it be fleeting pleasures, quiet despair or Jesus’ peace?
