Christianity has organised its principal beliefs into a structured systematic theology in which it draws its sacred writings and traditions from. These principal beliefs include the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, the death and resurrection, the Trinity, revelation and salvation.

Christianity Framework Jasmin Bradshaw 24284 Grand Canyon University October 23, 2008 Introduction Christianity is a religion that arose from the teaching of Jesus Christ. It has an ancient history from that time and has since then diverged into Catholicism and many sects of Protestantism. Christianity is a monotheistic religion centered on the life and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth as presented in the New Testament. To Christians, Jesus Christ is a teacher, the model of a virtuous life, the revealer of God and most importantly the Savior of humanity who suffered, died and was resurrected to bring about salvation from sins. What should be in the framework that is
Worldview Assignment Part One: What is a worldview? A worldview is the essence of our being, the very core of who we are in relation to our emotions, desires, and the decisions we make. It also helps us determine how we see the world around us and the events that happen in it (Weider and Gutierrez 59). Part Two – One: The Question of Origin The biblical/Christian Worldview believes that mankind, the universe and everything in it was created by God, with humans being created from God’s image. They also believe that all members of the Trinity “played a role in creation of the universe and mankind” (Weider and Gutierrez 65).
Referring to their importance, examine the principal beliefs of Christianity. Christianity is a monotheistic religion whose adherents are followers of Jesus of Nazareth. Christianity reformed out of Judaism in the first century CE and originated in Palestine. Christians preached their faith in Jesus as the Christ, the Jewish Messiah, who is saviour of all peoples through his death and resurrection. The principal beliefs of Christianity are highlighted in the Ten Commandments, the Nicene Creed, the Beatitudes and the Golden Rule.
Romans and Christian Worldview Bible 425-B05 3/1/2015 Because of Paul, the book of Romans teaches us about so many aspects of the Christian life. Paul’s letter was not meant to be a systematic theology, but rather a letter presentation of the Gospel. The book of Romans covers a wide variety of topics that are essential for followers of Christ to live by. The topics creation, sin, salvation, eschatology, ethics, and theology are the key points found in Paul’s letter, and understanding each is key to the growth of every believer’s relationship with God. CREATION On the first topic, creation, Paul teaches in Romans 1:19-20 that the world was spoken into existence by God.
Prayer is communication with God, so as Christians it is important that it is more than just formal, memorised prayers but you must speak to God, telling the Lord in our own words what we think and feel. Prayer is an essential part of Christians lives and has been since its earliest days. It is the crucial component of the Christian faith as it is the tradition of communication with God. The role of personal prayer rituals plays a very significant role in the tradition since Christian’s model their lives on the example of Jesus. Personal prayer is the prayer of an individual.
The two groups’ backgrounds both highly honor scripture. In the second chapter of Square Peg Robert Mulholland discloses the idea that fundamentalists believe the Bible has “comprehensive and rationally accessible inerrant divine truths or propositions.” Their idea of the Bible is that it becomes a collection of information given vocally or dictated to writers. On the contrary, Wesleyans have the belief that the Bible is the resource by which believers need to focus on the message of God. This message is most definitively given through Jesus Christ coming to earth. However, it appears that the shift in focus can drastically change the interpretations in the Bible.
Christianity should be seen as the outline for godly decision making and a strategy for daily living.11 The Word of God has the final jurisdiction and is pertinent for the choices that Christians must make, many of which have moral consequences. A Christ 1 Titus 1:1 (Unless otherwise noted, Scripture quotations are taken from the Women's Devotional Bible, New International Version®.

Also, ‘the angels are sons of God’, (Job 1:6 NIV, TLB), in a sense that they are His creation.” (Sleman 12). After “God the Father,” there is “God the son,” meaning Jesus Christ is God’s son and also, a representation of God himself. Christians believe if they believe in the “son of God,” then they believe in God as a whole. Lastly, there is “God the Holy Spirit,” which is the power of God. Christians see that God gives life and he lives through His own spirit.
