Welcome to Apologetics with Carl Kerby.
Today, we’re talking about worldviews. Pluralism is the worldview which states that all beliefs are equally valid. In fact, pluralism goes so far as to insist there can be no right belief system, which is contrary to Scripture.
But another problem with pluralism is that it is an extremely inconsistent worldview. You see, one of pluralism’s biggest claims is that it’s a very tolerant worldview. However, this “tolerance” is very intolerant of any belief system (such as the Christian worldview) because it asserts there is only one true way.
As apologist Josh McDowell said:
Even though pluralism is touted…as ‘open-mindedness,’ it’s actually just another form of religious exclusivity. . . It excludes anybody who doesn’t believe it.
And Scripture clearly confirms that there is a right and wrong way: Psalm 119:128 says, “I esteem all [God’s] precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.”
Another false worldview is existentialism, but we’ll discuss that another time. For more information, go to www.hopetools.net. Stay bold!
