Examples Of Christian Worldviews

The Worldviews of Christians The Christian worldview is one that many people around the world hold close to their hearts. This worldview is a view of love and hope and of redemption, and follows the teachings found in the Holy Bible as they are the Word of God. However, it has become apparent that some denominations don’t quite believe in the same foundations of the Christian worldview as others do. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, shares some core beliefs with this overall worldview but has its differences and many regard them as non-Christian because of it. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) is a religion that teaches the same teachings of love and hope and redemption but it teaches some things a little …show more content…
Christians are taught, “We are to love our fellows, to love all people, in fact, as neighbors. All people bear the image of God. They have value, not because they are redeemed, but because they are God 's creation in God 's image.” (F.A. Schaeffer, 1995). This is a true mark of Christianity because it teaches so much. It teaches humility, sacrifice, to be giving and understanding. Christianity teaches us to be accepting of others even if they are different than us because it is what Jesus would do. A confusing part of Christianity is the many translations of the bible. They are all just a little bit different and so therefore most denominations all believe things a little differently. There isn’t just one Christian church there are Baptist, Catholics, Apostolic, Latter-Day Saints, and many more. They all teach roughly the same ideas and values but are all different. Other types of faiths don’t seem to have this many separations in beliefs and could therefore seem less confusing. Another troublesome thing is that some denominations preach that others are of the devil and spread mean words about them. If Christians are supposed to love one another, then why do they do this to each …show more content…
Many people within the Christian faith have told me that I am not one of the two. I personally have my own Christian worldview that is different from others and for that I have been told I am wrong. I come from a religion of peace and harmony with oneself and with God. I love the people around me and I try not to judge, as it is not my place. My religion is very close to my heart and can be seen in my every day interactions. I treat people with respect and kindness and I know that even a simple smile can change someone’s day. My God is my Heavenly and Eternal Father who loves me and I love Him. Jesus Christ is my Eternal Brother, Savior, and Redeemer and without Him, I wouldn’t be able to see my family again after we have all passed on from this world. I am nowhere near a perfect person, but I try and when I fall short, I know that I can turn to my God and ask for forgiveness. I love being a Christian and tit brings so much joy and happiness into my life. One day, I will be able to thank God for sending His son to this earth so that I could have the opportunities I have

    Depending on the worldview the answers will vary immensely. Human nature is an interesting foundational concept of Christianity, the biggest aspect of it being free-will. God gave humanity free will so that all of the choices made are humanities own decisions. Free-will also allow for the relationship between God and his children to be real and unforced. This gives his believers a chance to proclaim his love and pastor to others how great and holy he really is.…

    We know this to be true because christianity is made up of people with real hearts and emotions. We are made up to be smaller versions of christ in the ways we interact with others. Many christians are able to show the love and forgiveness, but even if others turn their backs on us we can always look towards God. As christians it is easier for us to show forgiveness and spread the word, because know how it feels to be forgiven for everything. I agree in totally with the part of the quote that says, “following Christ and shaping our world, is to announce redemption to a world that has discovered its fallenness”.…

    In conclusion, over this past course I have learned how to glorify God through loving my neighbor because "we are not of this world, but sent into it", it means that we are passengers on the world and no matter what religion you are involved, what matters is that we should live every day glorifying God. I can apply this concept to my current life here in Taylor. I can show love to my wing mates, friends, partners, team mates and…

    Martyrs are a perfect example of how we can stand for God. When we share good news of His son, we receive the benefit of faith. When we have faith in God, we want to share good news. We want to tell everyone about the great things Jesus did. These martyrs died because they wanted to share the word of the God, and that is the true testament of faith.…

    Many believe we like to tell others how to live their life when in fact we are doing the same thing and engaging in the same activities. They think of us as “the sin police” (onfaith.co). Outsiders often feel like we’re quick to tell them that their way of living is wrong and that they should do the opposite or be like us and follow in our footsteps, yet we’re still doing the same thing they are, if not worst. Outsiders tend to forget that just like them we are human and make mistakes too. In the Christian community there are certain things you shouldn’t partake in due to the belief of it being a sin such as drinking, lying and sex before marriage, and gossiping about one another.…

    Justice And Mercy Essay

    This is not to say that other religions can’t be saved, because that assumption would be exclusive not inclusive like Jesus shows us in the story of the Last Supper. Another aspect of mercy that many Christians assume is the fact that God can still allow non-Christian’s to be saved. “If people are saved in other religions, it is in spite of, rather than because of those religions as such.” (Tiessen 17). A reason why this is a fairly common belief in Christianity is because of the fact that God has control over justice and mercy and also that God is a forgiving and loving God who believes in second chances. Another example of the Bible affecting our views of Jesus and redemption and furthermore our insight on mercy and justice is chapter fifty-three in the book of Isaiah.…

    God does all of this out of love, which also is a powerful word in my life. God died and rose again because of his love for us. So, what better way to repay him than spreading that love with others? In my everyday life I try and love everyone with the compassion God would want me to.
