The goal of a Christian is to develop a close relationship with God through (Word of God) the ministry of Jesus Christ and by the aid of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the anointed one from God the Father who came to this world, to fulfill the Old Testament laws and prophecies. Jesus performed miracles which are recorded in the Gospels by the eyewitnesses. Christianity teaches that there is one God, one faith and one baptism; it teaches that God made the universe, the earth and He created Adam and Eve and that God created man in His image, that mean God’s character. That means every person is made in God’s image and likeness.
Christians believe that everything that exists, is the result of God. The Bible states in Genesis 1:1, that God created the heavens and the earth in the beginning. 2 Peter 1:21 says that Moses who wrote Genesis while being inspired by the Holy Spirit, says that God is the creator of all living things. Almost all Christian churches teach that God is the trinity and was the major benefactor in the creation of mankind and the universe. What does it mean to be human and are we more important than animals?
Worldview Cheyenne Pearl Hood Liberty University Online WORLD VIEW According to THE POPULAR ENCYCLOPEDIA OF APOLPGETICS (2008) , a worldview is the frame work of beliefs by which a person views the world around them. In common parlance, it is the grad of filter through which a person interprets everything (Caner & Hindson, 2008, pg.498). The question of origin is defined throughout the entire bible as God. Every Christian should be able to refer to Genesis 1:1, this verse simply states the fact that God Himself, created the earth(Genesis 1:1, NIV). Genesis may be the most known book in the bible to refer to when talking about the origin of life, but there are also several other scripture readings.
This is reiterated in Genesis 1:1 and Psalm 139:13-16. Throughout life, many Christians are taught that “God is triune and all three Persons of the Godhead were involved in the creation of the universe and mankind” (Weider & Gutierrez, 2011, p.56). Man is created in the image of God and according to the theistic view, “… is a special creation of God … and is responsible to take care of God’s creation” (Weider & Gutierrez, 2011, p. 58). In Genesis 2:15 and Psalm 8:5, man’s identity is further defined. Man was created with moral and spiritual capacities, among other things, from God so that we may understand our identity as His creation.
Obviously, Jesus holds a unique position as God incarnate, the second person of the Holy Trinity. Consistent with His teachings, however, believers have always used the word Father when referring to God. One of the most important creeds in Christian history begins with the phrase, "We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible." This simple affirmation carries several important truths our children need to understand. Here are some of those essential truths: Father = source Our earthly fathers are an important source of our genetic makeup.
Scriptures to look up in the Bible: John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him, shall not perish but have everlasting life. (2.) Man is sinful and separated from God. Scriptures: Rom. 3:23: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Christian Worldview Christopher G. Irwin Liberty University Christian Worldview A worldview mainly comprises of a person’s collection of many presuppositions, values and convictions from which one totally tries to clearly understand and in addition make sense out of this world and life. It is not only an explanation and world’s interpretation but also the continuous application of it to life. The Christian worldview clearly sees and understands God as the Creator and His celebrated creation (man and the world) majorly by use of God's special revelation, mainly the Holy Scriptures, and through His natural revelation as seen in creation. This is clearly interpreted by all human reason and also reconciled by and evidently with Scripture, mainly to elicit beliefs and behaviors in accordance with God's will. This will eventually bring glory to God from one's mind and life, in the present and in eternity.
The Question of Identity? The biblical worldview identifies the value and respect God has for mankind by giving him authority to rule over His creation (Psalms. 8:4-6) (Consider 2011). This authority places the responsibility on mankind to care for and nurture the creation entrusted to him, and enjoy the rich blessing that come from his labor. But more importantly, God has given us a glimpse into His nature by creating man as a reflection of His image and likeness (Genesis 1:26-28).
His name is jesus and he is the creator, who revealed his word to man. All prayers are answered by him and due to him, a future life and the doctrine of resurrection is maintained. According to christianity god is one in nature, but there 3 persons constituting the Holy Trinity; that is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Islam proclaims Allah, the one god, who is sovreign and good, who also answers prayers, who works with both mankind in history calling prophets to proclaim God’s work. Islam offers two choices for mankind in each field.
Accordingly, Matthew 26:41 lets us know that “… the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak” (New International Version). The Natural World The natural world is a consequential part of the biblical worldview, which is our origin. Moreover, our origin, per se the natural world, materialized because of God. Likewise, before God, there was nothing; he spoke the words, and everything became substance. In other words, God was and is the inventor, the producer, the creator, the progenitor, the maker, the author, the founder, the mastermind, the father of all creation and deity to all.
