.Today we’re talking about worldviews. Beatles singer John Lenin’s most popular song, “Imagine,” dreamily called for a world without religion, heaven, or hell. This reflected the vision of 19th century philosopher Karl Marx, who promoted an atheistic worldview, promising utopia for the world through man-centered, communist ideas.
So, what would such a world really look like? Well, history has given us plenty of examples of where atheism leads. Societies that have openly rejected God such as China, Venezuela, and the former Soviet Union, have all been extremely repressive. Not only have these nations oppressed religion, but they have also curbed nearly every other freedom of their people. You see, when God is removed from society, the worst of sinful human nature moves right on in. As 2 Corinthians 3:17 says, it is only “where the Spirit of the Lord is, [that] there is liberty.”
The atheistic worldview naturally leads to nihilism, but we’ll discuss why that’s true at another time. For more information, go to www.hopetools.net. Stay bold!
