Let's go to Matthew chapter 13 which contains some of the key kingdom parables that Jesus taught. Let me reiterate "Jesus was living and demonstrating the Kingdom in the way He lived his life. He used the parables to explain why he did what he did" one of the key ways to understand the Kingdom is to study the principles Jesus taught through these parables. He wanted us to understand what he was doing. He didn't want it to be a mystery. He didn't want his disciples to think only Jesus and God can do that. He said, look, if you put these principles into place they will work for you as well.

What is a Christian Worldview? Everyone has a worldview. Whether or not we realize it, we all have certain presuppositions and biases that affect the way we view all of life and reality. A worldview is like a set of lenses which taint our vision or alter the way we perceive the world around us. Our worldview is formed by our education, our upbringing, the culture we live in, the books we read, the media and movies we absorb, etc. For many people their worldview is simply something they have absorbed by osmosis from their surrounding cultural influences. They have never thought strategically about what they believe and wouldn't be able to give a rational defense of their beliefs to others.
