AFA’s ‘Champion the Vote’ group has released their worldview guide
Champion the Vote has been an effort by the AFA to get unregistered Christians involved in the 2012 elections. It is being run by many of the same people involved in the Rick Perry Prayer rally and is linked with many NAR personalities.

Just recently, CTV released their “Worldview guide” detailing their desires for everyone to build a Biblical worldview and labeling all conflicting worldviews as atheistic. The first page consists of the breakdown of the Biblical worldview, which I included below, and the second page is their handy comparison chart detailing the differences between the two.
DEVELOPING A BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW
A Biblical worldview begins with God in Genesis, chapter one and verse one. A Biblical worldview is viewing the world, the beginning of the world, people in the world, the problems in the world, governments in the world, issues in the world, solutions for the problems in the world, and the future of the world – through God’s Word.
A Biblical worldview requires that you know what the Word of God teaches!
Everyone has a worldview whether they realize it or not. Your response to news about an abortion clinic is based upon your worldview. Your response to school shootings is based upon your worldview. Your response to evolution is based upon your worldview. Your response to issues of life and death is based upon your worldview. Everyone has developed a ‘system of beliefs’ and core values that they operate from. The goal is to be sure that this “system of beliefs’ is based totally on the Word of God!
A Biblical worldview cannot be based upon any human system of beliefs and values.
The best way to define a worldview is ‘simply how you see the world’. If you were to put on a pair of glasses that had ‘blue lenses’ everything you see would be ‘blue’. If you were to put on a pair of glasses that had ‘green lenses’ everything you see would be ‘green’. The same is true for a worldview.
There are basically two worldviews: Biblical and atheistic.
The centerpiece of a Biblical worldview is God, while the centerpiece of an atheistic worldview is nature and man. In a Biblical worldview, everything you see should be viewed through the Word of God. If you have an atheistic worldview (one that does not include God) you will seek to develop an
answer for every situation, issue or problem that does not include God. For example, an atheistic worldview does not allow for creation because there is no God. From the atheistic perspective, the world came to be out of naturalistic causes, not because God created it.
Developing a worldview has a far greater impact than you might initially think.
If you have a Biblical worldview, you will know how to respond Biblically to issues in the world. Having a Biblical worldview gives you confidence, answers to life’s problems, and a hope for the future.

So, forget rational, logical free thinking, and just trust in the immutable word of the Bible and think happy thoughts
