Eph 6:13; Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • For the Roman Soldier…
  • The belt was used to “gird” or bind his long, loose robe tightly to his waist.
  • It enabled him to fight unencumbered, balanced and stable, without tripping over himself.
slide4

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • For the Christian Soldiers…
  • The Belt of Truth is the strength of our character, our integrity.
  • It’s what holds us together, and gives us our stability, security and balance when assaulted by the philosophies of this world.
  • Colossians 2:8
slide5

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • If you don’t have a Belt of Truth…
  • Character becomes careless, morals become loose and integrity gets lazy
  • We become an easy target for the enemy; easy to trip up, easy to stumble, easy to take down and defeat!
slide6

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • WORLDVIEW
  • A “worldview” is the framework from which we view and live our lives.
  • It is your ideology, your philosophy of life and theology.
  • It is the “lens” through which you view reality and make sense of the world.
slide7

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW
  • A “biblical worldview” is based on the infallible Word of God.
  • When you believe the Bible is entirely true, and allow it to be the foundation of everything you say and do.
slide8

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • SECULAR WORLDVIEW
  • A “secular worldview” says, “I am my own god and I decide my own truth; I determine for myself what is right and what is wrong. The bible is just a book, and church, God are not relevant to my life.”

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • SALVATION: THE BIRTH OF A NEW WORLDVIEW
  • It is the realization that there is a holy God, and one day I will stand before Him.
  • And now I will live my life with the view that everything I do and say will be judged by God.
  • Hebrews 9:27 by God
slide11

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • ONE CANNOT BE A CHRISTIAN WITHOUT A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW (a change of mind)
  • Romans 10:9-10
  • Romans 12:2
  • Salvation requires the transformation of one’s worldview.
slide12

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • DO YOU HAVE A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW?
  • Do absolute moral truths exist?
  • Is absolute truth defined by the Bible?
  • Did Jesus Christ live a sinless life?
  • Is God the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe, and does He still rule it today?
slide13

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • Is salvation a gift from God that cannot be earned?
  • Is Satan real?
  • Does a Christian have a responsibility to share his or her faith in Christ with other people?
  • Is the Bible accurate in all of its teachings?
slide14

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • In a survey of professed evangelical, born-again Christians by George Barna, only 9% of "born- again" believers answered “yes” to all eight questions.
slide15

THE BELT OF TRUTH

  • A SAD REALITY…
  • It is possible that our “Belt of Truth” can be loosened. It can even “fall off.”
  • Your Belt of Truth will be tested!d
