This course of Biblical Worldview has certainly helped shape my ever growing theological view on life. On this final assignment, I plan to take all that I have learned throughout this course and put my biblical worldview to the test. I want to discuss in this essay, exactly what the Apostle Paul’s epic epistle The Book of Romans teaches about many different aspects of the world and how it has affected my worldview.

Because of our Savior Jesus Christ and his compliance at the cross, this portion of Romans helps individuals deal with death and even provides hope in the face of death. Yes, we are sinners who will one day die and there is nothing we can do to stop this from happening; the best we can do is believe in Jesus Christ and his sacrifice so that we may be reconciled with God through His precious
