Christian Worldview Defining a Christian worldview is both very important and very difficult. It is important because Jesus Christ Himself sent us into the world with a commission: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20, ESV). With that commission, we need to understand how Christianity fits into all nations of the world. The reason for its difficulty is that we all have our cultural biases that we impose on our Christianity. It is not intentional, but because we do not live in a vacuum, cultural influences become part of us with every breath we take.

Ever since I was six years old, the year I was baptized, I have been on fire for the Lord. I attended a Christian school for eight years and have always been very involved at my church. My first experience outside of my “Christian bubble” was when I went to
Christian Worldview Paper 2 The Old Testament of the Holy Bible gives many examples which provide modern man with guidelines for the use of scientific method. Millam (2008) explains that there is an underlying order in nature demonstrated by the patterns and regularities of God’s creations. These regularities can be seen in the forces of nature and are stable throughout space and time (Millam, 2008). The original classification of species, use of precise measurement, and even the first account of scientific research, are all included in the Old Testament of the Holy Scriptures. God gives scientists some clear frames of reference for seeking knowledge and truth in science.
"Secular" means having to do with this world, or that which is temporal rather than spiritual. It suggests something that is not specifically pertaining to religion, or that which is apart from God, although not necessarily opposed to
How did the earth and everything on it come into existence? This is a question, that for the Christian worldview is answered by the Bible, in Chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis. The Bible makes clear to it’s readers that God existed before anything else. The creation account in Genesis 1 splits creation into 6 days and a 7th day of rest. The first day God created the earth and Heaven as well as day and night. The second day God separated the earth from heaven to create the sky. On the third day God separated the waters on earth so there would be dry land. He created plants and trees that could bear fruit and seeds. God made theses plants so that they would be able to keep growing from the seeds that fell from them. On the fourth day God created the
My name is Asia Harvey. I am eighteen years old. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I am a freshman in college majoring in communications. Worldview to me means how everyone in the world interprets reality. I believe everyone has a worldview and it is influenced by our ethics, morals, and family values. It can also be influenced by what we hear, what we read, what we see or who we associate with. Worldview is mostly influenced by religion and science even though, a worldview can and do change. I believe the Christian worldview deals with the belief in the Bible. It leads me to believe that God created the universe in six days and on the last day he rested and that I am God's creation put on earth to fellowship with him and govern
I have to agree with you Kesha this course did shed light on and let us explore different worldviews than our own Christian worldview. It placed emphasis on how important it is for us to understand other worldviews in order to be able to get along with non-Christians. Our world has become a society of multi cultures, and in order to be able to understand and be able to communicate with these other cultures we need to understand where they are coming from. No matter what type of worldview a person has, each person has the capability of knowing right from wrong, and good from evil, and each person has value within themselves. As we go onto our future careers as Administrators we will need to fall back on what we learned in this class. It
According to Amy Scott Hassenpflug, Aaron D. Traphagem and Jamaica Johnson Conner, authors of Breaking Ground: Keys For Successful Online Learning, “Because your worldview is all-encompassing, it affects your thinking on every aspect of life, from what you view as right and wrong to how you spend your money and your time to what you think politically; it even impacts how you treat others” (p. 82).

When it comes to living out the beliefs of the Christian worldview, the way to do so is by attempting to emulate the behaviors that Jesus displayed during his limited time on earth. This is because as Christians we are expected to live a life that mirrors his since Jesus lived a sinless life and had a perfect relationship with the Father. Trying to emulate the behavior of Christ and by virtue living out the virtues of life is based upon the examples left within the Bible. In the Bible, Christ showed how his followers were to live out his teachings in their everyday lives despite the persecution that they would face from others. Instances of this include when he told Peter not to fight the guards, when he spoke of turning one's cheek, and when
Yet people are separated from God, not because he is so distant, but rather people are born rebels (i.e., they are born raging against him) (Rom 3:10-18).
In the United States of America people belong to different society, religions and nations live respectively. This is the primary motivation behind why this nation is more novel than different nations. One of the principle challenges that health care team confront consistently is to recognize and comprehend diverse religions. Christianity and Sikhism are the religions discussed by the writer in this paper are not extremely distinguished from each other. Every religion has its own principles and regulations and rules so one must think what will fit in with that religion. As a health care provider we are not obliged to know each and every point of interest of all religions. However, in the meantime we shouldn't disregard the basic concept of all
