Worldview Assignment – Apologetics 104 By: V’Londa Taylor A worldview is described as the basis for decision-making among mankind. It is the view in which the world is seen based on learned revelations and our various exposures. Worldviews are individual and everyone has one (Weider & Gutierrez 2013, p. 58). Through the lens of the biblical/Christian Worldview, five primary questions can be answered. First, the question of origin; where did we and the world around us come from. According to the biblical/Christian Worldview, the world and everything in it came through the creative making of God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We find evidence of this through the writings of Moses, the author of Genesis. In chapters 1 and 2, Moses describes how God made the universe and formed man from the dust of the ground. Even the book of John describes Jesus’ involvement in “making” the world (Holy Bible, John 1:10). The second question that is answered through the biblical/Christian Worldview is the question of identity, “is there any difference between the parts of creation: humans, animals, rocks, plants, etc.” This can be answered in the distinction God places between humans and other parts of His creation. When talking only about the man, God stipulates “man” is made in His image and God gave man dominion over the animals (Holy Bible, Genesis 1:26). It is also believed according to the biblical/Christian Worldview that God is a “Triune” being, God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. Also, man being in the image of God is a three-part being “Spirit, Soul, Body” (Holy Bible, 1 Thessalonians 5:23). The third question answered by the biblical/Christian Worldview is that of meaning/purpose; the “why are we here.” Man’s purpose in being created by a holy God is to glorify God on this earth and to emulate Him (Holy Bible, 1 Peter
