APOL 104 (September 7, 2014)

Part I: What is a worldview? Worldview is the framework of beliefs by which a person views the around him. It translates from the German word weltanschauung which means “world perception.”(Hindson et al, 2008). Everyone has some type of worldview. As Christians, our worldview is using the Bible as our standard for our framework.

Part 2:
1) The Question of Origin This question asks, “How did life begin?” and “How did mankind come into existence?” (Weider et al, 2011). Origin is the start or the beginning. It is as simple as Genesis 1:1—the beginning of the Bible and God’s creation. Genesis 1:26-27, clearly tells us how we got here—that God created men and women in His image.

(Mark 12:28-31). Biblically, we are to respect God and stay away from evil. (Proverbs 3:6-7). Anyone should be able to see God simply through how I live by letting God’s morals shine through me.

5) The Question of Destiny This final question asks, “Is there life after death?” “Will I have to answer for the choices I made and how I lived my life?” (Weider et al, 2011) Christians believe in two eternal states for all human beings: Heaven or Hell. The Bible tells us that everyone will be judged by what they have done. If your name is not written in the book of life then you will go to Hell. (Revelation 20:11-15). God has promised each of us eternal life. (1 John 2:25). We each have the freewill to choose eternity with Christ in Heaven or with Satan in Hell.

Part 3: How should a biblical worldview influence the way I think about, treat, and speak to others on a daily basis?

Matthew 7:21 is what comes to mind. God tells us to treat others as you want them to treat you. God has created me in his own image, and I need to always remember that I may be the one and only chance for someone to see God through my actions. Be quick to forgive. Show unconditional love. How should a biblical worldview influence the way you decide a future career?

God has given each of us gifts. As Christians, we need to ask God for guidance in learning our gifts and then using then to bring praise and glory for Him for any career
