A worldview is a scheme of principles that direct a person’s life and any major decision that they make. The Book of Romans was written by the Apostle Paul, which was the most influential Christian of all the ages except for the Lord, Jesus Christ. This book gives an account of how Christians should believe and act as the way they do. The letter to the Romans was his work of art that summarized numerous essential Christian beliefs. Paul states, “I must tell the good news to everyone” (Romans 1:13-15).Through the works of Paul, one can gather insights into his approaches on the natural world, human identity, human relationship, culture, and an understanding of one’s own worldview.
As Paul understood it, the natural world is full of sin, bursting with people discarding God, and filled with people who did not worship Him. In today’s society people pick and choose their own beliefs and ideals to justify their cause. Just as in biblical times people’s beliefs were scattered between God and the gods. When a person has these types of theologies, one can assume that rewards and punishments may follow, whether it is good or bad. These penances or recompenses are meted by God are unwavering based on our deeds in the ordinary state. The sinfulness in all humanity is reflected in Romans 2:1-3:20 (Hultgen). In today’s natural world, people still worship false gods, participate in homosexual activities and disobey God just as much as it was in Paul’s day. Paul had a solution for this unruliness it was for the people to place their devotion in God. Just as we have jurisdictional rule, we also have a higher ethical ruling as well. The same penalties for violating the law occurs in the natural dimension, as well as, the spiritual dimension. Romans 5:13 states that,” For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there was no law.”
