The Christian worldview is a complex idea that covers several topics and splits off into various subcategories. The foremost viewpoints of Christians are their belief in God, Jesus, and the Trinity. Christians believe that human nature plays a significant role in their lives and the struggles all humans have. Jesus was trying to accomplish the restoration of the fallen world, and Christians draw on the teachings of Jesus today. This reflects a large portion of Christian worldview beliefs. This paper will attempt to explain Jesus, God, Humanity and the Restoration from the perspective of the Christian worldview, as well as analyzes the writer’s thoughts and reflect on her own beliefs.
Now faith is defined as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. In the stories The Song of Roland and Dante’s Inferno both main character’s faith was tested on their spiritual quest to salvation. Roland was betrayed and outnumbered by his enemies and Dante was lost in the darkness of sin. As each man faced difficult situations on their missions, both relied on their faith to overcome their enemy, persevered through obstacles and refused to turn back. Although Roland and Dante journeys were completely different, their values in what they believed in were the same.
Some of these similarities between these religions include having the same major ideas and origins. Christianity, Islam, and Judaism are all monotheistic religions. Each has their holy scripture and a holy language. Christianity’s one deity is called God, its holy scripture is called the Bible, and its holy language is Latin. Islam’s one deity is named Allah, its holy scripture is called the Qur’an, and its holy language is Arabic. The deity of Judaism is Yahweh, its holy scripture is named the Torah, and its holy language is Hebrew. Another similarity between these religions is that they have the same origins. All of the religions would not have started without Abraham, and many people play important roles in all these religions. They all
Louise M. Antony argues an important ethical concern in her article, “Good minus God”. Can a person do good deeds without God? Arguing from an atheistic point of view, Antony believes that a person does not need to depend on God in order to complete good deeds. I agree, whether Christian or Atheist, all can perform good deeds, but who ultimately defines good versus evil? Antony subjectively defines morality and uses nature as her source. In contrast, I believe God created all things and defines good and evil through His creation and Word. And finally, as followers of God, our motivation for accomplishing good comes from our love for all God has done for us. Imagine a world without order, chaotic without a specific guide to right or wrong–a world without God.
Faith is something that majority of all us have inside of us even though we may not know it just yet. There are countless ways that faith can be explained on why it drives us to believe that there is more than what we being presented.An example that I know is the conception of an Islam man is to have full faith in his religion and must serve for all, if they are killed for the righteous reason for Allah as what they was supposed to fully believe in, then they are promised a paradise of 72 virgins. Despite believing in something that isn't necessarily needing physical proof.Going back to do we accept only what is presented to us as reality in this case isn't true because those men have no proof of their actually being a paradise full of virgins. But a more relatable example would be believing in whomever you believe in, which for me would be God. I can't see him, nor hear him but yet I have full faith that he exists because tying with reason because we can draw conclusion that cannot be strictly deduced from their premises. Although it seems as if you make up your mind you believe in this and you don't necessarily know why but yet you have full faith. Faith is what you can say goes with intuition because if you have faith in something then you gain the intuition to go do what you believe in because you morally
In Flannery O’Connor’s “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” she uses writing skills such as symbolism and imagery to get across her different themes to the reader’s with plenty of room for self-interpretation. Though O’Connor’s work could be defined as cynical, she does an excellent job of writing in the third person with her uncomplicated structure of sentences leaving plenty of room for her character 's thoughts, feelings, and actions to get across the realism of our world.

In her short story “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” Flannery O’Connor tackles the issue of grace, showing that no matter the person, everyone can attain and earn grace. The grandmother and the Misfit, though they appear to be quite different people, are both the same at the core: They are sinners in need of Christ. The Misfit and the grandmother are both capable of change and accepting God, but only the grandmother reaches this revelation before her death.

Faith and works- In Eph.2:8-10) works are described as an outflow of the faith of believers. (Hebrews 11:1) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. I do believe the word of God (Prov.4:7) Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Attending church Sunday after Sunday, I would always hear different sermons preached on faith, until recently when it was time for me to go through a process of having faith it was then that I realized I heard about faith and I knew the scripture, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. My struggle with having faith was I believed but still worried and allowed my circumstances too bring on stress. Matthew 6:25 has helped me though my times of struggling with faith. God has used different trials and tribulations to perfect the gift of faith that he has entrusted me with. I believe faith is stepping out on nothing to believe God for something. Now that I have a clear understanding of how to use faith I will allow God to use me to bless and strengthen others through testimony and

There are so many different religions in the world. We will look at the striking differences between Hinduism and the three well known monotheistic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. In doing some research into each of these religions we can find differences right away. Hinduism stands out among the four because it is in one way a pantheistic religion but it is also a polytheistic one as well. A pantheistic religion is one that believes in God being one with the universe. Monotheistic means the belief in one God and polytheistic means the belief in many gods. Hinduism is both a polytheistic and a pantheistic religion.
Buddhism and Early Christianity both date back thousands of years. Buddhism dates back to sixth century C.E. making it approximately 1,400 years old. Christianity as a whole started to emerge as early as the first century C.E making it a little over 2,000 years.

This work discusses Greenleaf’s servant leadership perspective and a biblical perspective on servant leadership. The two ideas have similarities, but also have some major differences, which are discussed further. Along with the discussion of Greenleaf’s servant leadership concept is further information regarding what a biblical worldview on servant leadership looks like from an organizational perspective. The work is crucial to understanding both the similarities and differences in Greenleaf’s concept of servant leadership and the way Christians should approach the concept in leadership positions.
