A worldview is how we look at the world around us. Whether a Christian or secular worldview, it is a filter or lens from which one sees and interprets the world and all that it represents. An example of this would be when a teacher divides her class into different sections, hands out different color tinted glasses, holds up a white blank sheet of paper and asks her class what color the sheet of paper is. The class will view the paper in different colors because their view was affected by the different color tinted glasses. In the same way, our view will impact how we look at life. (109 words)
The question of origin asks how life began and how mankind came into existence. God created life out of nothing (Genesis 1:1-25) and then He created man, ...view middle of the document...
The question of meaning or purpose asks we exist. We exist to love the Lord, to fear Him, to walk in His ways (Deuteronomy 10:12) and to serve Him and keep his commandments (Deuteronomy 11:13). The question of morality asks what is meant by right and wrong and how I should live. Right and wrong are based on God’s holy standard. As Christians, we believe in the fall of Adam and Eve and when they ate from the forbidden tree and as a result we are all born sinners (Psalms 51:5). We cannot be saved through good works but by allowing God to into our lives, accepting His gift of salvation (Ephesians 2:8). We should live our lives by loving God, loving others, and being kind to all. The question of destiny asks us is there life after death, what will happen to us after we die, and if we have to answer for our choices and how we have lived our lives. I believe there is life after death. I believe that those who have accepted Christ as their Savior will spend eternity in heaven with God (Revelations 3:5) and those who have rejected Christ as their Savior will spend eternity in hell. I think that we all will have to give an account for our choices on the day of judgement (Matthew 12:36). (343 words)
As Christians, we should think about others positively and putting others’ needs ahead of our own needs just like we would like to be treated if we were in their shoes. We should speak to others with respect and only say words that encourage and build others up and not tear them down (Ephesians 4:29). When it comes to voting, whether it is in local or national elections, I believe that we need to base our choice on the candidate that has the same beliefs as we do. That is how I choose who I vote for. (101 words)
