A worldview is the way we approach or think about the world. “Our own personal philosophy.” The worldview of a Christian or whatever is a personal evaluation about meaning and reality. A simplistic biblical worldview would be to have the mind of Jesus Christ. Genesis 1:1 is the first verse of the bible that sets the foundation for the worldview development: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” This profound statement prior to the creation of earth God existed.
The politically correct worldview has been the “heart to the backbone” of the bible from Genesis all the way through Revelation.
The question of origin
(Genesis 1:27) (Genesis 1:28)
The belief by Christians that the one and only God was the creator of mankind. The worldview (Christian) supports that in six days that God created the world and all of the beautiful creations within. During this time span two people were created: a man (Adam) and a woman (Eve.
) This was the start of the origination of the world’s population. On the seventh day God rested.
The question of Identity
(Genesis 1:27) (Genesis 1:28-30)
The Bible states that mankind was created in God’s image and similar likeness, to revive and surge the earth and have every living thing on earth in his control/power. Animals are unlike mankind because animals don’t have a spirit and body whereas we do; the lacking of that one value by animals is that they were not created in God’s image.
The question of Meaning/Purpose
(John 17:3) (Matthew 28:19-20)
As in the evolutionary theory; the purpose of life is to live each day as if it were your last. The belief by Christians that mankind is to worship/glorify God, have obedience, and through our prayers Meaning and Purpose is proven and given by the sacrifice of Christ and rising three days later from the tomb. And to know and have a holy walk with Jesus Christ
The question of morality
(Romans 3:23) shows the Christian worldview that mankind needs forgiveness and simple morality with their downfalls. (John 13:34) The basic morality principle is when we are taught by Jesus to care and love one another.
The question of destiny
Christians believe that at death their soul will remain in one of two places, with God in Heaven or in Hell. In the Christian Worldview heaven and hell are literal places. In order for one to go to heaven their life and deeds on earth must be justified. To be justified it’s all in the beliefs of life, resurrection of Jesus Christ, death and burial. (Not in that particular order) And trust the sacrifice of Christ was sufficient for your sins. Remember Repentance and Obedience is morality standards resulting in whether your soul goes to heaven or hell. (Matthew 25:23) (John 3:16)
2. Voting in local or national elections. I am a very big political guru and I believe that when voting you should look at all the parties involved that will be voted on by the public. The question I always ask myself is “WWJD: What Would Jesus Do.” And that is in reference to the main issues of importance and influence. I don’t care if we have a woman or black president it’s all in their approach to solving the problems we are facing as a state, nation, or world. Because we have to be involved with other parts of the world if it be oil conflict, war, nuclear weapons—it doesn’t matter who you choose, but identify their purpose and meaning, and see if their views are that of Biblical Perspectives.
4, Decide a Future Career. I am debating on the exact course I want to take
in my career. I want to be involved with people on a daily basis. I want to be able to make a person’s day brighter by a few words or thought I might pass off to them. I haven’t decided if I want to be a Psychologist or a Substance Abuse Counselor. I believe you can gain a person’s trust if you have been in a position that they may be in. It’s all like a reflection in a mirror—if they look hard enough they can place so many people in the position that they may be in or overcoming. In my life death is a hard thing for me; I mean I can say nice condolescences and positive remarks but I don’t grief like everyone else. I always picture the scenario “What if the show was on the other foot.” But I want to help people in some form of Counseling Position.
