The Church’s Competition: Six Worldviews You Need to Know

In a recent article Rick Warren points out six worldviews the church competes with on a daily basis…often unknowingly. In order to meet people where they are, you have to know where they are coming from. The six views are:

1. The one with the most toys wins (materialism)

2. I’ve got to think of me first (egocentrism)

3. Do what feels good (hedonism)

4. Whatever works for you (pluralism or relativism)

5. God doesn’t exist (naturalism or atheism)

6. You are your own God (humanism)

Check out the whole article here. I think it simplifies our audience and allows us to be more concerted with our words and topics
