        The worldview of every individual can be very unique, however if closely examined many times these worldview can have many similarities. The way each individual views their world views within religion can also vary based on each individual. There are many different world views when it comes to religion, but there are only two types of people, those that believe in God and those that choose not to believe in God. Having the freedom to decide our religious beliefs is something that is learned at a very early age of life based on our parents beliefs, or for some they convert to religion later in life. Having my own ideas about whether or not a higher power exists has allowed me to be more open minded and accepting when it comes to exploring my choices in my life, family and future.

        God created the universe in al its beauty. God is the essence of purity and wisdom. God is Trinity – Father, Son, and Spirt. God seeks a relationship with his children.God is the creator of the Heaven and Earth. He gave us his only son to teach us his way and to take those that believed in Him away from sin. God is characterized as being loving, understanding, forgiving, strong, powerful and wise. God sacrificed his only son on the cross because of our sins and in order to save humanity. God did this because of His unconditional love for us. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, than whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life”. (John 3:16) In the first act of the biblical storyline, we are told of the outline in which God created the groundwork of the universe and all living things. According to “How Is Biologos Different From Evolutionism, Intelligent Design, And Creationism? (pg1), “God is the creator of all life- including human beings in his image. In Genesis 1, we are told how God created the universe and all life over six days. He created the heavens and the earth giving us evening and morning on the first day. On the second day, God created the vault called “the sky”. The third day God brought together water under the sky to gather to one place and allowed dry ground to appear creating waters called “seas”. On the fourth day, God created lights to separate day from night. The fifth day God created the great creatures of the sea and birds that fly above the earth. On the sixth day God created mankind in his own image to rule over all that he created. Then in Genesis 2, God created the beginning of humanity with his creation of Adam and Eve.

        According to “The Bible Story” (2015), “Nothing could be more important than understanding the fundamentals about human nature, and the way in which the human mind works, in relationship to the things of God” (1). In Genesis 1, ‘God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, so God created man in his own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them”. Human nature is what distinguishes us apart from all God’s creations, it is our ability to think and feel. However, the primary difference between human being and the rest of God’s creature’s is that human’s were blessed with the ability to reason, with ourselves and others. Our ability to reason allows us to be able to reflect on our nature and the nature of God. Everyone at some point in their lives question their purpose in life. According to the bible God had a set order of laws and principles He set forth and expected mankind to follow. God created us a part from His other creations, giving us similar qualities of God. God appointed mankind as stewards of all his creations. In Genesis 1, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them”.. God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds in the sky and over everything that moves on the earth”. (Genesis 1:26-28) He also gave us the Ten Commandments to assist us with properly carrying out our stewardship to successfully complete our duties to God. The Fall of humanity began after the serpent tempted Adam and Eve into eating fruit from the forbidden tree, known as the tree of knowledge and evil. This single act of disobedience would come to be known as the original sin that caused the Fall of humanity. The sinning continued even after the Fall of Adam and Eve. God created a covenant with Abraham and his family, but even this relationship could not stop humans from rebelling against God, and choosing to surrender to the power of evil. The problem with human’s is that mankind is sinful by nature.

Jesus is the creator of all that exists. He is the Son of God. Jesus Christ spoke the eternal work of God. Jesus Christ traveled and spoke the eternal teachings of God’s word as he walked the earth as a human man. Jesus and his disciples traveled city to city teaching and spreading the gospel of God. We all have a set of values and principles in which we live by that guide us through life. But for individuals of Christian faith, they live by a specific set of beliefs that form their worldview. They belief that an absolute God exists. This God is self sufficient and all powerful. They belief that man was created in God’s image.
