Biblical Worldview - People are created in the image of God God said, “Let us make man in out image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in his own image,in the image of God he created him;male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:26-27 ESV). As we can see from scripture God created the the heavens and the earth, and then God created man and woman to rule over it. Since we are created in the image of God we must share some of the same characteristics. “Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.” (1John 4:8 ESV), so from this we know that God loves us because he created us and he is the perfect example of love. “To the Lord our God belong mercy and forgiveness, for we have rebelled against him.” (Daniel 9:9 ESV), so from this we know that God is merciful and forgiving regardless of our continuous failure toward him. Using these examples (and there are many more) and knowing that we are created in the image of this loving and merciful God we know how we are to interact with people. These characteristics give us a gauge as to how we should live our lives. Since we are loved by a God that has never failing love we know we can confidently stand through any trial because we know ultimately God loves us, his creation, and he would never fail us in using us for his will
