Introduction: The apostle Paul was very sincere when he wrote his letters in the New Testament. One of his better known letters was to the Romans. We are going to look at what a world view looks like according to Romans chapters 1-8. Everyone has a worldview of some kind, whether they know it consciously or not. As a Christian, it is incredibly important to have a strong Biblical foundation so we can have a Christ like world view.
The natural world: The world we live in was created by the only all-powerful God. As Geneses 1:1 states “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth”.

The only thing was, God gave humans the choice of free will, to make our own choices. This ultimately led to Adam and Eve eating from the tree of forbidden fruit, and becoming banished from the Garden of Eden. We are not able to save ourselves by doing good works, as Romans 3:28 says, “For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law.” God did not want all humans to become lost for all eternity, so He sent His only son Jesus Christ to die on a cross for our sins.

In Romans 1:5 Paul states that, “Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name 's sake.” Salvation from Christ is not limited to just the Jews, even though they are God’s chosen people. God gave all people the gift of salvation and the ability to be saved through grace and faith in Jesus Christ. There are many people who believe that if you are not born of the Jews, or follow the law of the Jews, you will not be saved. However this is not the case, as Ephesians 2:8 states, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.” We can enter heaven no matter what our culture through God’s grace.
Conclusion: In conclusion, having a Biblical world view is one of the most important things a Christian can have. We live in a fallen world, God was incredibly gracious and gave us the gift of eternal life. We have the gift of being able to have wonderful human relationships, even if we sometimes hurt those we love, through Christ. We are able to come to Christ no matter what our culture, through faith in Jesus Christ. We have such an amazing gift, being able to have a personal relationship with Jesus
