My personal worldview, in its entirely, stems from a belief in a divine God who created the universe and everything in it to His exact specifications. This belief directly answers Sire’s first and second worldview questions, “What is prime reality—the really real?” and “What is the nature of external reality, that is, the world around us?” (Sire, 22). The Christian Bible’s first chapter, Genesis 1, details my view of God’s creative process, with its first line effectively summing up my stance, saying “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen. 1.1). Anyone, including myself, who holds a theistic Christian worldview believes the Bible to be more than just a book; God himself inspired the authors of its pages. Like a belief in God himself, a certain level of faith must exist for a Christian to believe in the text’s holy nature.
First Corinthians 8:6 states, “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom all things… and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things and we by Him”. This verse backs up one of the main claims of this God being the Prime leader. The idea of the “God of the gaps”. Easily counter’s this claim. This idea is based on the fact that Scientists are quick to give credit to God in areas where scientists are not able to find answers.
God revealed himself in the Old Testament, by detailing His fundamental plan, for humanity. Dr. Korver suggested that the theme of the Bible is about God’s sovereign restoration of His earthly kingdom. Likewise, Paul Enns states, the Old Testament can be summarized under the central theme of kingdom (39). Therefore, the Scriptures are about God’s kingdom and God restoring His kingdom on earth. In fact, the whole purpose of God sending His only begotten Son was to destroy the works of darkness through Jesus; moreover, Jesus’ gospel is the kingdom of God.
Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.
But no matter who was speaking the message or writing the book, the One who was really doing the speaking and the writing was God himself—the men were simply his messengers. The Bible explains it this way: “Prophets, though human, spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit” (2 Peter 1:21). Christians are monotheistic, they believe there is only one God, and he created the heavens and the earth. This divine Godhead consists of the father (God himself), the son (Jesus Christ) and the Holy
Theism is the belief in one God as creator of the universe, intervening in it and sustaining a personal relation to his creations. To the ordinary theistic Christian believer, “God the creator is omnipotent and performs miracles.” God is all-powerful and can perform wonders when He is prayed too. Also, theism is the belief that God created the universe by speaking it into existence. As found in the book of Genesis in the Bible, “by the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.” God made new creations each and every day, but when it came to the seventh day He rested. Additionally, God is always in contact and getting involved in human affairs.
But, due to their unbelief they were cut off so that God could provoke them to jealousy. Instead, gentiles (referred to in this passage as the wild olives) were grafted in to draw from the rich nutrients of the Abrahamic covenant. Hence, the Apostle Paul assured the believing Galatians, “And if ye [be] Christ’s (by your faith in His redemptive work of the cross), then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29; Author’s
The author wants to establish from the outset the superiority of the revelation in Christ, and the completion of man 's reconciliation with God. In the past, God spoke through the Words of the prophets, through the patriarchs, through signs and punishment, and through angels. But now He speaks through the words, life, death, and resurrection of his Son. Hebrews 1:1-3 - God, who gave our forefathers (of the Jewish nation) many different glimpses of the truth in the words of the prophets, has now, at the end of the present age, given us the truth in the Son (Jesus Christ). Through the Son God made the whole universe, and to the Son he has ordained that all creation shall ultimately belong.
He wants you to have a personal relationship with Him through Jesus, His Son. There is just one thing that separates you from God. That one thing is sin. The Bible describes sin in many ways. Most simply, sin is our failure to measure up to God’s holiness and His righteous standards.
The book of genesis is located in the Torah which is the first five books of the bible. This text is in Genesis 3 to reason that God first created light and then worked his way to humans. The creation story are told first, after that the fall comes when humans get expelled from the Garden of Eden. This was important for the text since it was the consequence of humanity for sin. In the New Testament the messiah comes to saves us from sin, this essential in the Bible because Jesus Christ, only son God sacrificed himself to bring salvation to the world.
