Two Worldviews: Creation or Humanism

There are four great questions that man tries to answer in life. These are called the great philosophical questions. Who am I? Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going when I die? The way you answer them depends upon the way you view the world.

There are two ways to look at the world. Some people look at the world and say, “You know, it’s amazing, a big bang made this world from nothing!” This view is the humanist worldview, which says man is God. Humanism is the philosophy from which the idea of evolution comes, believing that there is no Creator—no God.

The second way to view the world is that since there is an incredible design, there must have been a designer. This is the creationist worldview which says God is God; man is not God. These two worldviews are absolutely at war with each other.

How do we answer the four great questions of life? If evolution is true, we are nothing important. Actually, we are a bit of protoplasm that washed up on a beach after a big bang about 20 billion years ago. There is no purpose in life; so we might as well have fun. If it feels good—do it. After all, we are just going to end up in a grave to get recycled into a worm or a plant.

But the Bible says, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” If that is true, we have a whole different set of answers to those four questions. God’s creation of the world means that we had better find out who He is and what He wants. We were created in His image with a responsibility to obey Him. When we die, our choice in life will determine where we will spend eternity—in Hell, separated from God, or in Heaven with Him.
