INTRODUCTION

This chapter and Chapter Five continue the presentation of the Biblical World View through study of selected passages from the Word of God. You have already learned how God created the world, of the fall of mankind into sin, and how the world became divided into various nations and languages. In this chapter you will learn more about what the Old Testament reveals concerning the world. The following chapter focuses on the subject in the New Testament.

Many believers are not aware of God’s eternal plan for the world. God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. . . ” (Hosea 4:6). God was not talking about the kind of knowledge one obtains by going to school. He is speaking of spiritual knowledge that helps us understand and participate in God’s plan on earth.
