Be sure you answer both Part 1 and Part 2 of this assignment before submitting.

Part 1

After reading Chapter 2 in the textbook and the lecture for this topic, write a 2-3 sentence answer to each of the six questions that form the basic components or personal commitments for your worldview. Answer the questions about your own beliefs in your own words, not what you think the Christian worldview believes. Keep this worksheet intact, and only add your answers under each question.

  1. What is your belief about ultimate reality?

My belief in ultimate reality is that God is everywhere, even though God cannot be seen. Written in the Genesis chapter in the Bible, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1). Ultimate reality is the things that happen around us or have happened, even before our time. My faith and beliefs are my strengths that structure my view of ultimate reality. Ultimate reality is when faith and belief help guide us though our lives with the answering of prayers and the miracles that happen in our lives and the lives of others.

  1. What is your belief about the nature of the universe?

The creation of the universe is a design from God; which I consider to be the ultimate reality. The purpose of God’s creation of the universe is designed for the beauty and spirituality of all life. My belief for the nature of the universe is for a spiritual lifting and praise to the divine work used in his creation.

  1. What is your belief about human nature and the afterlife?

Human nature is the qualities and behaviors of civilization that are shared or acquired by each person. We are all born into human nature and the developments of society. Human nature is the simple human tendencies we develop on how we think, act, process things, and react to things. Without human nature, my life may have gone in the wrong direction and may not be able to tell right from wrong, and could end up living a sinful lifestyle.

Afterlife is when it is my time to ascend and become part of God’s green earth. I believe in the ascension to the Heavens, or Hell. I feel human nature can affect the outcome of where one will ascend or descend.

  1.  What is your belief about knowledge?

The key to success is the development of being able to gain knowledge to enhance as a person. Knowledge is the power to learn and develop to help advance in life and pass down the knowledge learned to the children. Knowledge is how we justify the truths and facts through our personal beliefs and values. You can never be too knowledgeable; there are always changes and differences happening. It is our knowledge and development that helps us grows.

  1. What is your basis of ethics?

The basis of ethics is the moral principles and values that guide me throughout my life. Some values I hold very dear to me. The Army helped me to focus on my “loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity, and personal courage” (Army, 2008). My ethics are the principles and values that guide the manner of how I live my life and govern my decision making abilities. When I teach ethics in the army, I like to have my soldiers think about their ethics and beliefs, and then I would have them react to a challenge for those beliefs. It helps each soldier, as well as me, to take charge of their thought process and work their ways through the process by using their ethics and values.

  1. What is your purpose?

My purpose is to learn and develop so that my children can see that even through hard and tough times, I am able to maintain my bearing and continually push forward in life; striving for greatness. My purpose is to live life to the fullest and make a difference in people’s and soldiers’ lives. My purpose in Iraq helped me to care and save soldiers. My purpose is still being written and learned.

Part 2

Answer the following two questions with a 250-400 word response for each.

  1. Your answers to the questions in Part 1 form the basis of your worldview. Now that you have articulated your worldview, evaluate it according to the practical test described in Chapter 2 of the textbook and the lecture. Can you live your worldview out in the world as we know it? Why or why not?

I show great pose with my worldview and feel that I am able to adjust to the world views around me. The knowledge of the different worldviews may not be perfect and gaining the knowledge to be successful and advance can take me to adapt and overcome. I know that I am affected by the views of others and my children see me as a strong parent who is willing to make some changes at times for the development and establishment of family life. I hold each value as a norm in my life and value the development of my norms, which in turn enhances my knowledge. Being a soldier can add points of world view to each of us; it does not mean that we have to change or become a new person with a new world view. I may not like some of the things we do, but if it protects my family and friends, I would gladly move forward and adjust to the world views of my chain of command.
