Worldview Essay
My Christian worldview has been instilled into me from a very young age. Being raised in the Deep South of Alabama, this has always just been the way of life for me. God is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost- also known as the Holy Trinity. (Biblica, Inc. 2012. NIV). I believe this with my whole heart and in saying that, I have set the grounds for my Worldview Essay.

I know all of these things to be true because my God has revealed Himself to me on numerous occasions. God carried me when I was unable to stand on my own two feet and gave me the strength to carry on.(Stevenson.1963) God is always with me- even when I choose to turn my back on Him or am not pleasing to Him. The way that I know what is true is I feel it in my heart and I follow my instincts. I was raised with morals and values that allow me to know the difference between right and wrong. I was also raised up reading the Bible which specifically gives me instructions for my daily living. God plainly gives us all of the right answers in the Bible on what is right and what is in fact wrong. (Biblica, Inc. 2012. NIV).
The purpose of life is that we should all try our best to live according to the Scriptures and to please God. We are only here on Earth for a short time. I believe that the purpose of our lives is so that we can prepare ourselves to get into heaven with our Father. Our lives on Earth are short but it is our final destination in heaven that matters. Spending eternity in heaven with my Father is what I am striving for in my everyday life here on earth.
The core commitments I have that are consistent with my worldview and make a significant impact on my life are unconditional love and forgiveness. These core commitments of my Christian worldview have deeply affected my life. For years I struggled with both in light of my relationship with my mother. Once I learned what unconditional love was, I was able to learn the true meaning of forgiveness. These two core commitments are the most important in my Christian worldview as far...
