The importance of worldview

... by Craig Bartholomew: here.

...we must realize just how powerfully Biblical Christianity is worldview-based. You know, one of the things that I've learned as well is that when you read the Bible, you don't take your worldview glasses off, you read the Bible with your normal worldview glasses. And if you're a white South African, you only read Romans 13 and you don't read all those other texts in Revelation which describe the state as demonic and as the Babylon of this world. And then the only thing you see is that good Christians obey and support the government. You read the Bible with your worldview-based glasses on.

Actually it was Acts 17:26 which clearly teaches that God made France for the French, and Zululand for the Zulus

Acts 17:26 ‘From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live’;

I don't think apartheid supporters used Romans 13, although they may have.
