Where does the worldview map start?

Continuing from the last blog about worldviews: If a worldview is the truth claims that explain the world and reality, like a map, what are these specific claims?

Apologetics is defending beliefs and actions. As Christians defend the faith, explaining why we believe in Jesus as Savior, what we say is important—the content of our apologetics must be solid. We must know the facts and be armed with knowledge. However, that is just one part of the defense. The other part of the [&hellip
