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.
Who is God? God is the Creator of the universe as we know it. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning of the end. God created every form of life from humans to the fish in the sea and it only took Him six days. (Biblica, Inc.2012.NIV). God ...view middle of the document...

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).

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...
