These include the views that Christians are hypocritical and are more focused on rules and regulations than people, as well as several controversial standings such as homosexuality and political involvement. In fact, in Kinnaman’s findings, only an estimated 34% of young outsiders believed that Christians really cared about them (68). Additionally, UnChristian challenges the Christian community to step up to the plate and redefine what the world thinks of them. For each negative perception that is assumed by young outsiders according to Kinnaman’s research, he offered what he referred to as “new perceptions”, or how Christians should strive to be perceived by outsiders.

“Personal experiences and intuitive feelings will shift over time and in different situations. A worldview based on Scripture will survive over time and across all the situations we will encounter” (McCullough, 2008, p. 19). Your biblical worldview beliefs should influence the way you think about, treat, and speak to others daily by allowing God’s light to shine through you unto others. McCullough says that we are to be influential for God’s glory in our lives, and that God must be involved (2008, p.7). Your biblical worldview beliefs might also influence the way you decide on a future career.
Total truth talks about how the secular world has pushed aside Christian views and those that support them are being told to hide that side of themselves. Christians have come to understand that there has to be two sides to them in how they live their lives. One is their work persona and two their church persona. The author goes on to say that they as Christians should break out of this grid that people have created for them so that they can truly live a Christian life every day for every walk of life.
God is the sole creator of the universe, forming it in a series of distinct stages over six days (English Standard Version Bible, 2001, Gen. 1). The moral aspect of this story arises from Adam and Eve's disobedience when they eat the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge, which results in their expulsion from the Garden of Eden (English Standard Version Bible, 2001, Gen. 3). This event, known as the Fall, introduces the concept of original sin, highlighting the imperfection of humanity. These two creation narratives provide valuable insights into the way different cultures perceive the beginnings of the universe.
A biblical worldview will effect everything I do in my life. One of the most important things is the way we treat and interact with others. It start with the way we think about others, if we know them or not we should see them through the eye of compassion. We must be careful not to judge people because of what we know or don 't know about them. How you speak and treat them will determine if you will ever be able to help them or not.
God is the creator of all and the reason for our salvation as humans. The intent of this research paper is to discuss the similarities and differences between the religious principle views of salvation of Roman Catholic versus Southern Baptist. Roman Catholics
(Werteimer 3). Children should be learning about the population and diversity. A lot of students are not informed about their own faith. As a CCD teacher I can see a significant amount of students who have stopped coming. It is very sad because religion is starting to become the last priority.
One can still accomplish this by understanding the Christian world view by seeing that every human is unique and created in the image of God. Walsh and Middleton state, “Yet we are different from the heavens and the winds, as well as from the plants and the animals, and we sense this difference. We are God’s servants, but the nature of our service is unique” (p. 52). This reading made me realize how different we all are, and it’ okay to be different from one another. God’s unique characteristic granted to every human allows new ideas to be crossed and
Redemption was the only answer that will stop one’s suffering and gain peace with their internal
Christianity explains salvation as redemption by God’s grace through faith from unrighteousness and sins to Cleanliness, also known as Salvation. The Bible explores salvation in different perspectives including reconciliation, redemption, ransom, forgiveness, and justification. Even though the Bible is a unitary book, the new and the old testaments present salvation in different aspects. However, the different aspects are complementary. In fact, the Old Testament presents many prophesies about salvation that was fulfilled in the New Testament (Kärkkäinen 87).

I believe that all children are individuals, unique in their abilities, from a wide diversity of backgrounds and cultures, and they also have the right to be treated with dignity and respect. Educators are observers and designers who have to observe children’s abilities, interests and learning styles for designing a curriculum that fulfill everyone’s needs. Observers also play an important role on noticing individual differences and offering help to children who have lower ability to improve
