Running head: WORLDVIEW 1 Worldview Rick C. LU WORLDVIEW 2 What is a worldview? A worldview is the lens by which one looks through and interprets their surroundings. It is how we understand every aspect of our lives, in an attempt to establish what is true and what is a lie. A worldview is ones viewpoint on life, shaped by core values and often molded by people of influence. THE BIBLICAL WORLDVIEW The Question of Origin? The biblical worldview answers the age-old question of life and it’s beginning with the Triune God, speaking into existence all that is (Genesis 1:3,6,9,11,14,20,24,26,29). His creation is so incredibly perfect, that one cannot help but believe in His invisible attributes and the power of His Devine Nature (Romans 1:20). I believe it is the creation of Man in “Our image” (Genesis 1:26) that best demonstrates His Devine Nature. 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). WORLDVIEW 3 The Question of Meaning/Purpose? The biblical worldview is a love story between God and man that unveils the mystery of mans rescue in Christ Jesus (Eph.3: 3-4), which opens his eyes and delivers him from the power of Satan, into the power of God (Acts 26:18). This power was demonstrated by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from death into life, and now works in those who know Him (Eph.1: 15-23; Jn. 5:24; 17:3). This “new life” gives new meaning and purpose to those willing to experience the will of God
