There are three aspects to every individual’s world view. One aspect is our view of Science and Nature – how you understand the natural world. Your view about science enforces your spiritual understanding – Beliefs about God. Those two views, Belief and Science, conspire to determine how you relate to society and how society is governed.
The American Tradition: “We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal, that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights.” The result of this world view is belief in God and confidence that we live in a created world. Our worldview gives us an understanding that individuals have dignity because they are made in God’s image. Therefore, government’s main responsibility is to protect individual liberty.
