Biblical Worldview: Genesis 1-11
My biblical worldview is somewhat hard to explain knowing the complicity of the bible. It is one thing to understand a biblical worldview and another thing to have one. In order to have one, one must have knowledge of the sovereignty of God and of the life, death, and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ. It is with patience and great prayer and purpose that I read the first 11 chapters of the book of Genesis, which is the “beginnings.” The first 11 chapters create the stage of God’s creation of the earth, mankind, and everything in the earth. God offers the reader of Genesis ...view middle of the document...

In Genesis, we learn our identity is in God; not a god. Genesis 1:26 says, “Let us make man in our own image”. God has set man apart from all other creatures and He has given man the characteristics of reason authority (2:15), morality, fellowship (1:28), creativity, language, and His spirit. Creation is forever dependent on God, God works relationally with His creation. God creates and equips people to do the work they are called to do. Genesis sets a worldview that sin is something that comes from the first man (Adam) and is inherited by me. Another view is that I have communion with my God like no other creature in the universe, I am set apart from everything else that God created. In Genesis God shows how He hates sin and that there are consequences for sinful acts. God views sin as complete disobedience towards Him.
In Genesis humans are shown to be created in the image of Him who created everything thus my view is that I have dominion over the earth as God’s representative. I have dominion in the earth and I am responsible to God to manage and care for His creation. Genesis gives me a perfect picture to develop a biblical worldview of the human relationship: our first mother and father Adam and Eve. It is clearly seen in Genesis concerning God’s view of man needing someone to help him and God created this (Helper) from man, thus creating the first marriage. Marriage thus should be how God intended it to be: one man and one woman in obedience to God the father. In the Garden of Eden God equipped man to do the required work and man was innocent, “Naked… and not ashamed” (2:25). It is here in this first family relationship where I view issues started between man and woman. My worldview is developed here how man fell away from God after having perfect communion with Him in the Garden (3:1-24). Sin, selfishness, and the blaming of others is clearly shown here in Genesis. The human condition is exposed and the vulnerability to commit sin is a clear distinction apart from God.
My biblical worldview after the fall of man is that God still shows His love for the one He created in His image. God loves in spite of man’s disobedience. When God drives Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden (3:23-24) they bring with them their troubled relationship. God still continues to...
