Christian Worldviews And Worldview

Improved Essays
How does one view God or Gods? Are there many Gods just as Greek Mythology figures such as Zeus- God of the Sky, Poseidon- God of the Sea, or Ares – God of War? Or is there one God whom the Bible speaks about who created the heavens and the earth and everything on it? These are just a few questions that come to mind when focusing on Christian Worldviews and worldviews in general. Christians are passionate about proclaiming their love and faith for the one who went to Calvary cross for their sins who name is above all names JESUS. Christian’s worldviews has a major impact on all that believes in the one and only true living God.

This is where humanity comes into existence. In Genesis 1:26-27, “Then God said, Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” According to Hiles and Smith, “A third major element of any worldview relates to questions about what it means to be human. Here, one may question what humans are made of (bodies, souls, or body-soul complex), how they relate to the physical universe, and how they relate to the spiritual world if any such thing exists (p.5, 2015).” Even though we are placed here on earth with our earthly bodies there is a purpose for each of our lives. Purpose is something you have to activate like faith, it is a journey. You cannot discover your purpose in life by standing still. We all have calling in life that God wants us to open and find. God has blessed everyone he created with a gift. The cause of human problems is sin. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve was given a command from God not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. In this act of disobedience, sin and evil came into the …show more content…
The main benefit is that we have an advocate in Christ Jesus. This is not to say that once a person becomes saved all their life problems will just vanish. Christians do have assurance that whenever life problems occur, they have God to take refuge in. 1 Peter 5:7 tells us to “Cast all your cares on him because he cares for you.” At times operating in love and compassion just as Jesus taught can be difficult. Christians are taught to love their neighbors as they love their selves. God is not the author of confusion. He wants the very best for our lives, but we have to accept his power and authority. Christianity plays a major role in a Christian life. According to Apostle Paul human are sinful by nature. This means that the majority of the things we do in life is not good in the sight of God. Christianity provides a solid foundation and understanding on how we should live our

    He is using me to bear burdens and is teaching me to be gentle and patient and to be watchful as I walk alongside them. I believe as I am further equipped to do every good deed He has set before me, God will use me as His servant in His church. Our church is a church of needy people, as I am one, and I can see in His Word that God has given me all that is needed for life and godliness; therefore, I can be a vessel for His use to pour into others’ lives the great truths of the grace of the Gospel and all that Christ has done and to find our identity in Him. Our church is a church needing order brought from chaos - a great work God has given all of us. If I am one who is willing to be vulnerable and transparent because my trust and identity are in Christ, then Lord willing, that will be a catalyst of others finding their identity in Christ, which will allow them to be vulnerable and transparent so the light of Christ can shine on us and begin lighting the candles of…

    In preaching, whenever the text mentions this topic, I expect to address the topic of race relation reminding the saints and teaching the unsaved that God desires that all come to repentance despite their backgrounds. Through preaching and teaching in accordance with God 's holy word, I look to encourage the saints of God to continue loving one another with the love that Christ has shown to them. I hope to encourage and admonish the people of God to care for all of His children and be united as the body of Christ.

    One must choose the Lord, and this is why God gave us free will; what meaning is there in loving someone you are inherently in love with? This is basically Milton’s explanation for the reason God gave humans free will. The only question is, why become a Christian if bad things will still happen? This statement is a testimony to the fact that humans are hard-wired to think only of themselves. Moreover, once someone has accepted Christ as their savior, they are able to glorify God in all they do or go through, even the bad things.…

    Due to the fact that we have lived our lives consistently surrounded with sin, it is extremely difficult to fully resist sin. In the same way Jesus was fully human and lived a sinless life, it is possible for us to live a sinless life. This is a beautiful thing because, by God’s grace, every time one is tempted to sin, God provides a way to run from that sin. With this knowledge, I believe we, as Christians, should strive to be blameless in God’s sight. Because we have all sinned and fall short of the Glory of God, we have Jesus who is our substitution.…

    He wants us to glorify Him here on earth. We are given free will in our lives, to make our own choices that can either lead us onto a path of hope and freedom or one filled with chaos and corruption.

Humanity is filled with problems stemming from the fall of Mankind. Adam and Eve fell into the temptation of Satan, which led them towards the punishment of God.…

    As a result, others will see the brotherly love of fellowship, as true disciples of Jesus Christ. The audience should hear and see the act of brotherly love and be drawn to take part in the fellowship as well. In closing, the homiletical idea was founded through a New Testament Commentary, the EVS Bible, and a Handy Bible encyclopedia. The purpose of the sermons is to convey the thoughts of God written in His word. God does not want His people ever doubting that He cares, but it takes much effort for His people to trust His plans and purpose for their…
