Biblical Worldview Essay
Introduction:
The teaching of Romans is not only crucial for Christian theology, but the greatest revivals and reformations throughout the history of Christianity have resulted from an increased understanding and application of the teaching of this epistle (Hindson &Towns, 2014). The apostle Paul authored Romans as a letter to introduce himself to the people of Rome and his wishes to visit them. Also Paul addresses certain components of a worldview that relate to the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and culture in Romans 1–8, clearly providing the foundations for the Christian biblical worldview.

He wrote in Romans 2:1-4 that we think we can condemn people for the sins, but our own sins are just as bad. This is what Jesus taught in John 8:1-11. Jesus was at the temple and they brought out a woman that was accused of adultery. “They kept demanding an answer, so he stood up again and said, “All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone” (John 8:7). If Christians treat others that we consider to be sinners with disdain, or think that our sins are less offensive to God than the other persons, then we break Gods second commandment of love your neighbor as yourself (Matthew 22:39).
Culture:
Paul wanted to share the good news about Jesus Christ. ”For I have a great sense of obligation to people in both the civilized world and the rest of the world, to the educated and uneducated alike” (Romans 1:14). Throughout Romans Paul showed the sinful nature of the culture Jews and Gentiles were living in. Although the world was full of sin, Paul gave them hope. The believer should therefore consider himself dead to sin, but alive to God and God’s righteousness (Hindson & Towns, 2014).

    In Simon’s journal she discussed how rules cannot change because people want to refrain from the truth. In “The Ones Who Walked Away from Omelas” no matter how angry they get about the child they still understand why it exist. The child strongly represents Christ, but what if its God that walked and not the non-believers as mentioned earlier. God knew that his son was going to die when he sent him to. The ones that walked away could be God’s wrath on sinful humanity “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them”(Romans 1 18-19).…

    The author, Jonathan Edwards’ views on human nature is that humans are sinful by nature. Also, according to his background of him being a Puritan, Puritans think that people are also sinful by nature. n his sermon he says people like “you burns like fire; he looks upon you as a worthy of nothing else, but to be cast into fire; he is of purer eyes than to bear to have you in his sight,” to show that God is very upset with the sinners. So Jonathan is trying to say that when this world has people who are sinners, it will lead to consequences. Even though God does not like sinners, God said “ God’s hand can hold you up” to show that even though humans are of a sinful nature, they can fix it.…
