jay wegter worldview

Jay Wegter an instructor in Christian Ministries at The Master’s College has taught on the topic of “The Power of the Christian Worldview in Evangelism” that is available in two parts on Youtube.  First let me share his biography:

An experienced pastor and Bible teacher, Mr. Wegtter has a B.A. degree from Christian Heritage College and a Master of Divinity degree from The Master’s Seminary.  He founded Gospel for Life in 2005, which is a training ministry which assists local churches in fulfilling The Great Commission through evangelistic outreach and through curriculum designed to keep the Gospel central in discipleship.  Jay is co-author of the book, “This Little Church had None,” which was the featured gift book at the Shepherds’ Conference in 2009.  He has written other resources on the Christian life and is a professional artist.

There are twelve videos:

apple_steve-jobs

In our world today we hear many people say and believe the mantra of “Follow your heart.”  You hear this even from Christians.  An example of the world telling us to follow our hearts comes from the former founder of Apple, Steve Jobs; there are two famous quotes from him about “follow your heart” that appear as memes from time to time on social media:

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

And:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Both originated from a commencement speech he gave at Standford in 2005.  “Follow your heart,” Steve Jobs says, since you know “you are going to die.”  “Follow your heart,” Steve Job says, since “Everything else is secondary.”  Many people believe the same thing as Jobs does.  But how does this popular mantra stand up to the Bible’s teaching about the heart?

As part of our Christian worldview series on Superheroes and the Comics, in this post we will look at Jonah Hex and reflect on the topic of masculinity.

Jonah Hex Classic Tales: Welcome to Paradise

Jonah Hex Classic Tales Welcome to Paradise

Various. Jonah Hex Classic Tales: Welcome to Paradise. New York, NY: DC Comics, May 11th 2010. 168 pp.

This volume collects some of the 1970s issues on Jonah Hex, a bounty hunter operating in the old Wild West.  There are various short stories of Hex’ adventures.  This was the first comics about Jonah Hex and I was surprised that I really enjoyed them since I’ve never been a guy for anything Western.  I like how each story is self-contained and you don’t need to know a whole lot from other issues in order to get what’s going on.  I think I also liked the story of Jonah Hex as a manly gunslinger.  Taking place in the 1800s when the West was far from tame, Jonah Hex must be a tough man to survive and capture the guys who are wanted.

love hate

I think in the biblical worldview loving what is good and hating what is evil are not mutually exclusive.

Loving what is good and of God is a given for many Christians.  But hating what is wicked?  The Psalms have multiple references to hating what is wicked with the referent being God and man:

starbucks red cup

I’m not so much concern with some silly Christians complaining about some red cup as I am with the inconsistency of the people who belittle those Christians and then turn around and think its okay to sue a business if they somehow don’t cater for certain celebrations.
