Biblical Worldview: Through the Eyes of Apostle Paul 's Intro
In the beginning when God created this world and things of it all was “good”. As He was creating He labeled the creation of man “very good”. Since reading this statement I have had a different view of myself as a christian and furthermore as a human. Romans was dated in the 50’s of AD. Like Paul’s other letters he is writing to a church, the church of Rome. In the first eight chapters of this letter Paul shapes their worldview as well as it has shaped mine today.
Natural World
The natural world today is the same as it was in 50 AD, full of sin. Today when you watch the news you here of murder, same sex marriage and persecution of the church. Media

When I gave my life to Christ I took my sin and filth off and put on His righteousness. For the Romans this was a hard concept to understand. Why would God send someone to save all? Paul tells them all you have to do is believe and you will be rid of your sins (4:24-25). They then started to question of whether they are to continue in sin because God 's grace is upon them (6:15). We as christians know the answer to this question; NO. Our filthiness is what pulls us away from God. We should strive as Christians to be more like Christ our savior. This does not mean we are going to live a perfect life, but it does mean we should leave the sins of the past in the past and not continue to fall victim to them. A christian 's life if it is in christ should produce fruit of righteousness that leads to becoming one with God …show more content…
Human relationships can be broken up into two main parts, relationships with others and one 's relationship with God. When talking about a believer 's relationship with God we always hear two main ways to develop a relationship with God: through the Word and through prayer. Prayer changes things. Paul tells the Romans through their weakest times all they have to do is pray and for those who know Him all things will work together for their good (8:26-28). The other half of human relationships is one 's relationship with others. So many times in our culture today we judge others for their sin. Paul warns these people not to judge others, but to leave that judgement for God to do alone (2:1-2). Paul also talks about the error of having relations with the same sex as he does in many of his books (1:26-27). This seemed to be a problem throughout Europe at this time, as it still is a recurring sin today. Often times because of the filth in the world 's Christians will put themselves up on a pedestal. The Jews of Paul 's time did the same thing which his why the Romans asked if the Jews were better off. His answer to them that there is not one righteous (3:10). When we develop relationships with others we have to keep this in mind, “I am not better than that

    (Job 40:4) No one truly understands the gravity of their sins and when we feel that we can stand before God on our own merits we are deceived. The other assumption is that if we cannot see the good in suffering then there must not be any. This leads to the next section of Salvifici Doloris, how Jesus brings good out of suffering. The message of salvation is clear; Jesus suffered and dies to save us from Sin. Jesus suffering saved us from Hell an enabled those who repent to gain eternal life.…

    In the beginning of the book, Jerry Bridges starts off by explaining the true meaning of holiness because many believe it is just to follow certain do’s or don’ts. The true concept of holiness is to be morally blameless and be separated from sin and in order to live a holy life we must conform to the moral precepts of the Bible. He then goes on to explain 3 basic problems we have in Christianity. The 1st problem is that our attitudes toward sin are more self-centered than God-centered. We tend to only focus on winning over sin than realizing sin breaks God's heart.…

    What counts is where I am going” (Jantz, 1998, p. 18). The sins of my past are forgiven, but that doesn’t mean I can continue to sin in my path forward with God. I am called to confess my sin and He will be faithful and just to forgive me. I know Christ died to atone for my sins, but it is hard to fathom why God would sacrifice His only Son in such a horrific way to atone for the sins of the world. This sacrifice is confirmed in Colossians 1:20-21, “and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.…

    Grace is getting what we do not deserve from God. We do not deserve forgiveness of our sins, but he gives it to us through Jesus. We do not deserve to go to heaven, but we are able to do that through Jesus. So, to be saved by grace means that the judgment due to us because of our sin against God, i.e. lying, stealing, adultery, fornication, coveting, lust, etc., will not befall us; that is forgiveness.…

    I think that a lot of us are raised up to believe that if we don’t forgive, whatever it is troubling, angering, make our blood boil or shaming us, is going to last longer if we don’t forgive, whether it is ourselves or whether it is others we are forgiving. Forgiveness is absolutely vital in Christianity and it can be considered one of the basis of the faith itself, just like the world has been forgiven for its sins, through the death of Jesus on the cross. Forgiveness is needed…

    As Christians we must focus on saying on the positive and sincere words to others, and keeping the negative thoughts from coming out, as well as keeping them out of our heads. Saying negative and various insulting comments can damage different types of relationships, from friendships, to marriages, to a relationship with God. Regardless of what we think of others, it is not our job to judge other humans. Romans 2:3 (ASV) says that “And we know that the judgement of God is according to the truth against them that practice such things.” Romans 2: 5-6 (ASV) continues, “wrath in the say of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgement of Go; who will render to every man according to his works.” Speaking and believing in God and His word will only result in a positive relationship between you and God,…

    Chapter four –the holiness of Christ Bridges urge us to comprehend the righteous of Christ. We need to be grounded in Christ and imitate his life as an example of holiness. When we understand the righteousness of Christ we can dwell on it when the evil one comes to attack us. Holiness does not cling to a list of do’s and don’ts, but is firm mostly on don’ts. Christ’s holiness was not just the absence of actual sin, but a perfect conformity to the will of His Father.…

    I believe that is important to approach someone who is new to Christianity with the message of Jesus’s mercy and forgiveness, so that they aren’t intimidated by the moral standards. If you first present the standards, it might turn someone away from Christianity out of fear and unwillingness to follow such standards. Catholics emphasize the moral guidelines outlined in the Bible, but…

    Those who read the book of Genesis can see how the Lord makes it obvious that man and God are divided due to man’s sin. From the beginning of the Bible it is clear that God intends for someone to save us from sin and our own brokenness. (Gen. 3:15)3. Since the Old Testament states the problem that man has and cannot solve on his own, the New Testament shares the one who can relieve man of his wickedness and bear his sins. The Old Testament made it clear that man is unable to save himself by showing the increase of sin in exodus that the Lord eventually needed to wash out.…
