A worldview can also be described as a filter or lens from which one sees and interprets the world and all that it represents. A worldview, then, is a response of our heart or inner being: our intellect, emotion, and will. It is the total framework we bring to decision-making. 112 words Question of Origen A widely accepted theory for the origin and evolution of the universe is The Big Bang Theory which states that the universe began as an incredibly
Different denominations have varying worldviews however the Christian view is a worldview that is Christ centered and based upon the teachings of those found within the bible. Like a normal worldview, it is a framework of ideas and beliefs through which a Christian individual interprets and interacts with the world. It is to essentially love and server God. It allows a Christian to make sense of their world and life. This is a view that begins with a God who embraces those outside of himself, who planned a redemption that centered on sacrificing himself of behalf of the Christian people.
The Christian worldview has been around for thousands of years and it is one of the biggest and fastest growing religions in the world. This worldview is based off the Bible, which many of its essentials are found in the gospels. The gospel includes books Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. The gospels are the first four books of the New Testament in the Bible. Three of the books, Mathew, Mark, and John, were written from eyewitness accounts, however, Luke was written from a physician who conducted extensive research (CWV-101 Lecture 4, n.d).
Introduction What does it mean to have a worldview? A worldview is a set of beliefs about our perception of reality that influence our thoughts, morals, and actions. It can be anything from the lessons we learned from our parents and grandparents to our stance on economic policies. Now, what does it mean to have a biblical worldview? A biblical worldview is the lens we use to trust the word of God and how we apply it to everyday life.
Part I: Worldview A worldview can be defined as a particular philosophy of life or the perception of the world. It might be about life, people, beliefs, cultures and religion. In general a worldview is a mental model of reality that is formed around certain life events, people, beliefs or cultures that tries to give explanations about the behavior and conduct of a particular phenomenon. Part II: The Origin In the book of Genesis 1:1-31, the Bible gives an account of how life begun on the surface of the earth. The Bible says that for the first five days, God created heaven and earth and everything that is in it.
This passage summarizes the Christian idea that upon death the soul will either enter Heaven, Purgatory or Hell depending on how that person chose to live their life. When Jesus returns all the living and the dead will either enter eternal paradise or eternal suffering. This is a similar concept to that of Zoroastrianism where the soul travel on a bridge to Heaven or fall into Hell because of wrongdoings in life. The concept of Jesus Christ coming back to reward the good and punish the evildoers can be compared to that of Sayoshant. Some may credit this to coincidence, that humans have general questions about the world that they would like the answers to and there is bound to be overlap.
There is no pain and sorrow, and new hopes and new things are before me. These truths encourage me to leave this temporary earthly dwelling to an eternal place in heaven. I noticed there is a deep desire in me to go to this place where I belong. I long to be in Heaven, as that is where I can have an unbroken relationship with God. I should not be afraid and learn to trust in God when I approach dying.
Some religious groups believe after death the soul enters into the next world. There are many religions that teach at death the soul leaves the body and lives on for eternity. Afterlife is a mystery because there is no evidence or proof that this does happen but in spite of the lack of evidence many religion groups talk about the process of the afterlife and what happens after you die. Different religions have teachings on what happens to the body after death. Some religion does not believe in after life.

Similarly Christianity also recognises suffering in this physical world. Both Christianity and Buddhism observe suffering as the main focal point of humanity. Like the ‘right behaviour’ in the eightfold path of Buddhism, Christianity in its sixth, seventh and tenth commandments also preach about being kind and respectful towards the other beings around us. To abstain from stealing, hurting others and inappropriate sexual behaviour. Also, like the ‘right speech’, the Christian counterpart speaks of not lying, to not use harsh or unkind words which might hurt others which is evident in the following proverb(21:23) from the Bible : “those who guard their mouths and their tongues ,keep themselves from
