BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW ESSAY Anthony Johnson BIBL 110-B13 Turabian BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW ESSAY Having a biblical worldview gives the best explanation of the world we see and observe. In his epistle to the believers in Rome, the apostle Paul tells us about the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and civilization. His teachings informs us of how we are to better understand the world we live in and how we ought to live our lives accordingly. In Romans chapter 1-8, Paul lays out the basis for condemnation for the ungodly and justification for those who trust in Christ by faith alone (Rom.3:28). Therefore, man is obligated to repent and put his faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation and bear good fruit or face the righteous judgement of God. In Romans 1:20, Paul reveals that the natural world testifies to a supernatural cause. According to the scientific evidence, nature itself had a beginning. As Dr. Frank Turek points out, the supernatural cause that created nature must be spaceless (Because it created space), timeless (Because it created time), immaterial (Because it created matter), powerful (Because it created out of nothing), intelligent (Because the creation event and the universe was precisely designed), and personal (Because it made a choice to convert a state of nothing into something; impersonal forces don’t make choices). This evidence is consistent with Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Paul eluded to this when he said that God’s invisible qualities, eternal power, and divine nature is clearly seen, being understood by what has been made, so that men are without excuse (Rom.1:20). Therefore, we are to worship the Creator and not the creation (1:25). But fallen man do not give God the honor and glory for all the beauty and order He designed in His wonderful universe He created.
