Die Gewildheid, Geskiedenis, Struktuur, Waarde en Gevare van ’n Lewensvisie
The question about the most essential characteristics of the Christian faith is as old as Christianity itself. How should the content of the Christian faith be “clothed” to be relevant to the entire life of believers? This crucial question has been answered in a variety of ways. One way of addressing the vital issue was to clothe the Christian faith in the “garment” of a Christian worldview. To conceive of Christianity as a worldview has been one of the most significant developments in the recent history of Christendom. The aim of this exploration is to have a closer look at and evaluation of the concept of a worldview. The first section draws attention to the popularity of the worldview concept amongst a section of Christians during the past century. (It also provides important bibliographical information.) The following questions are then discussed: How did the idea of a worldview originate? How does a worldview look like (its structure)? When does a worldview experience a crisis? Are there any criteria to judge the correctness of a worldview? What are the advantages and disadvantages and even dangers connected to a worldviewish conception of the Christian faith?
