An individual’s worldview impacts every area of that individual’s life. As explained by Entwistle, an individual 's feelings as to science and Christianity is directly related to their worldview, a point of convergence that focuses and reshapes our awareness of the world and our place in it (Entwistle, 2015). Points
There are a variety of differing worldviews in practice today. Every person has a worldview that is shaped by their experiences, pasts, families, traditions, values, and beliefs that form the core of who they are. The Christian worldview is no exception. This worldview is formed by the beliefs and teachings of the Bible. The worldview is shaped and centered around the view of who God is, the purpose of humanity, the true identity of Jesus, the restoration of humans to God, acknowledging the strengths and weakness of the worldview, and the practicality of living out the worldview.
5. What is your basis of ethics? My basics of ethics was taught by my grandma she instilled a lot of her values and morals in my life giving me the teachings that made her a bright woman. She made sure to start on me early by getting me involved in church and helping me understand my religion and god and what he expects from his people. I was told to become a leader and not a follower use gods power that he using in my life to restore and help those who may be broken in life. I always ask god if I’m unsure I understand in this world of many temptations we may fall but our god isn’t a judging god and will be there with open ears and arms to help you get it right if you want change. I am not perfect but I pay attention I know right from wrong and know I am help accountable for my actions and faults. And have god move in my
Faith in Christ has given me a unique life filled with optimism and purpose. From a young age, I have been raised in a home where I was taught about the love of Christ. Not only at home did I learn about Christ, but at school and at church. Thus, my life has been filled with experiences that have amplified my faith. For example, when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, I found that my relationship with Christ grew. Through all of the difficult circumstances that I have faced, faith in Christ has given me the encouragement that I need to persevere through any situation. Additionally, faith has influenced my decision making, which is why I strive to make all my decisions and live my life according to faith-based principles. This means
The environment you grow up in and people you find yourself surrounded by as your make your way through the maze of life has a profound impact on a person 's worldviews. I am no exception to this rule, and to illustrate this point I will detail how I was raised, what I believed, and how I came to start examining those beliefs a little closer. This critical examination of my own beliefs has led to change how I think about the world in an enormous way, and has had a massive impact on how I relate to and understand other people.
Have you ever thought about what you believe in or where your belief comes from? Your beliefs come from your family, what you see on TV or what you here on the radio, and even yourself. Your beliefs reflect who you are and what type of person you are going to be.
As you read about my worldview, of course it’s like none other, because no ones will ever be the same. Everyone sees things differently and comprehends things differently. My worldview is unique, I came to Christ not too long ago, I try my best to make it to church every weekend and I try my best spread God’s love as much as I can. Of course some people may not believe in what I do, but they have to believe in something. Which is why everyone’s worldview is unique and interesting, you never know if by sharing you cause someone to seek interest in what you believe in. Sharing is one of the best things we can do; it’s one of the best ways Christians can reach people. Before writing this essay I wasn’t sure what my worldview was, but now I do. It’s simple, I believe God came and he created life in all aspects. He created the world and everything inside it. With Him doing that, I would’ve never had the opportunities that I do today, and I’ll forever be grateful for
The general beliefs that are my worldview shape not only how I see the world, but also profoundly influence the particular beliefs I come to hold, the judgments and decisions I make, and all that I
Throughout this semester our class has discussed worldviews quite a bit. Before this course, I had never really thought about or considered just how greatly worldviews affect people’s lives. I have recognized that my family, political party, and education are all factors that affect my own worldview in many different ways. Recently, my education has had the greatest effect on my worldview. Before MVNU I didn’t have a Christian worldview because I didn’t know much about Christianity. After just one semester I now feel I have a slightly better understanding of my world, myself and God. I do believe that Wendell Berry’s works present a Christian worldview because they aided in my newfound understanding. His works demonstrate forgiveness, empathy,
My Christian view has been of importance as it has enabled me to understand the most important questions in life. For instance, one important question is usually where everything that is on the earth come from? Christianity view answers this question by stating that everything on the earth was created by God. Christianity view has helped me answer the important question of what happens after we die. Christianity view states that one dies, they either go to heaven or hell depending on their behaviors on the
Christianity is the world’s largest religion, and the religion, which defines my personal belief system. At the heart of Christianity is Jesus Christ: my personal Savior, and it is His teachings and sacrifice, which is the foundation of “Christianity.” To begin, it is necessary to outline my beliefs as a Christian, since there are many conflicting Christian doctrines in contemporary society. My creed is the belief in the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. As the Bible teaches, God is three personalities within in One Spiritual Being. Furthermore, I believe the God created the world as put forth in the Genesis account, and it was created in a perfect state and without sin. Near the end of His creation process, God created man in His image, He set him apart, and gave him dominion of all other living creatures. Sin and death only entered into to the
Therefore, the beliefs we have in life have a huge effect in how we face our adversities, and behave. I can use myself, and my personal religious beliefs as an example of it. My religious background from my family is based in Christian Catholic, but also form Spiritism. The Spiritism is not a official religion, it is a spiritualistic doctrine based on the studies of Allan Kardec, that is why is called Kardecist Spiritualism Doctrine.
My worldviews can be inadequate at times, but I believe that everyone makes mistakes. Many people can say they believe one thing, but contradict themselves by acting out differently. For example, a lot of people get into relationships and believe they are in love with someone, but within a few moths they cannot stand the other person. Majority of the people I know will not admit that they jump around in worldviews. However, I am not afraid to say that some of my worldviews do not match up. Even though I grew up in a Christianity home environment, my views on the world are slightly different from the Christian Worldview. Sometimes I find myself second guessing what I believe, but I am still in the process of figuring out who I am and where I
Everyone has their own unique beliefs and motives that push them through their lives. I have many different beliefs instilled in me that mold my day to day life. These beliefs have been formed either by learning from my parents, or by personal experiences. One major conviction of mine is the pursuit of happiness. There are many ways to strive for happiness, and all people are unique in the fact that no one shares the same goals. My happiness comes from a core of beliefs. Religion is an extremely important part of my life, and I can thank my mother and father for that. Another belief of mine is that hard work pays off; in many situations I have been shown that a good work ethic goes a long way in being successful. I also believe in being an optimist throughout life’s trials and tribulations. Many things can upset me in day to day experiences; however, I believe it to be crucial to obtain a joyous attitude. These beliefs have become priorities to me and carry me through my life, and help me to succeed.
Almost a decade ago, after I had spent a year of in a discipleship program, I adopted the mission statement: Make the next right decision, and promptly admit when I’m wrong. To me this statement encompasses everything I know about applying Christian ethics to everyday life. Motivated by love, I seek to act in holiness and justice in every choice I make, including admitting promptly when I choose wrong. To make the best decisions possible I apply a biblical perspective, and ethical evaluation toward sound reasoning in recognition of both the spiritual and natural world.
