In fact being made in the image of God allows us to understand the nature of God where we reach to a high capacity of exploring his grace. In Augustine’s reflection “there is something of the human person which is unknown even to the ‘spirit of man which is in him’...-I nevertheless know something of you which I do not know about myself”(Augustine, 182).

The doctrine of creation is one area of his theology that demonstrates the application of his Trinitarian theology. According to him, humans learn the nature of God, the notion of being persons, the world, and ethics from their understanding of the ontology of Trinitarian God in relation as distinct persons.

Everyone has a worldview and basic beliefs, whether it relates to the Holy Bible or secular world. It is a matter of wisdom and common sense which differs from exceptional talent or intelligence (Wolters, pp. 4-10).
