Introduction A worldview is a particular philosophy or conception an individual develops during one’s lifespan. A biblical worldview is beliefs and principles that are constructed from a biblical framework that help Christians navigate through a life of sin and should be integrated into the many facets of one's life, including personal and professional settings. Christians who attempt to separate their biblical worldview from different aspects of their life may struggle to hold firm in their Christian beliefs. The Bible says in James, “Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do” (James, 1:8, New International Version).
What is a worldview, and why is it important? These are the questions we should ask ourselves when thinking about how we perceive the world around us. A worldview is simply the framework from which we view reality and make sense of life and the world. As Christians our worldview is especially important in correlation with our faith and how we see our fellow man. Armed with biblical teachings we must apply them to our lives and how we interact with those around us in a way that the Lord would approve of.
My desire to be an ambassador for Christ composes the core of my worldview. It infuses my life with purpose, motivates me to study other religions, challenges me to pursue righteousness and maturity, and forces me to rely on God for strength and salvation. My role as an ambassador for Christ constitutes my identity. It answers the questions “why am I here?”

He knew how to persuade people, so that they believed that he was right. That is why morale was a strong weapon of Christians, which was very useful to achieve their goal. Interestingly some historians like John Ward said that the First Crusade and following campaigns is a “movement of violent white supremacist colonialism”. According to this view, Christians look as expansionist aggressors, while Muslims are victims. But there are also opposite views, which state that movement to Holy lands is a defensive action to protect Christians from irreligious
John Winthrop 's sermon “A Model of Christian Charity” serves as an imaginative framework for which individuals must follow in order to create a better community— a community that is unified by the will of God. Two hundred years later in ‘Song of Myself”, Walt Whitman imagines a new community with a new set of guidelines. He emphasizes the importance of individuality and equality. Whitman’s vision is used as a lens through which Winthrop 's sermon is read. Although Whitman would agree with Winthrop that within a community there is a unifying force created by the individuals, he would argue that Winthrop’s imaginings of having a community modeled after god is not adequate because it will result in unfairness.
An anonymous person once said that “we aren’t called to shine our own lights; we are called to reflect His.” A born again Christian, once fully understanding the gospel and putting his or hers trust in Jesus, will desire to want to grow and obey God in order to honor and glorify Him, and since the only one who kept God’s law perfectly was Jesus, then one will want manifest and imitate Christ in everything he or she does. Not only does reflecting Christ’s image glorify God, it stands out to others as well. All true believers experience radical change because of the Spirit, and that change shines like a bright light towards other people leading them to ask, wonder, and desire that change and growth in their own lives as
In the map in document 5, you can identify aqueducts in different parts of the city. Aqueducts were a Roman invention that carried water throughout an area. Using their inventions reveals that the empire was still pretty Roman. In the map of the city, there is also churches.

In Raising the Bar, Reid discusses how to minister to the youth in the midst of today’s culture. He discusses the difference between the worldly view of adolescence and the biblical view of adolescence, relating that students need to be held to a higher standard. He also addresses the need for prayer and some practical ways in which to improve one’s prayer life. In addition, Reid addresses the need for biblical truth in the life of a student and the responsibility of adult leaders to feed them that truth. Each of these areas of discussion has given me greater understanding of how to work with the youth of today and have better equipped me in my own walk with Christ.
One Life, by Scot McKnight, was an appealing testament of how we should go about life in a way that reflects God’s mission and plans for His people. The purpose for this book was so common people reading are, hopefully, influenced to live out their “one life” for God. McKnight explains, in great detail, of what God’s intentions are for us. He also provides the reader with many options on how to overcome temptations we face. This book was discussing several obstacles that may seem as a concern, but are also great descriptions on what every human may run into; however, it is also very clear in McKnight’s writing, that we can abstain from those worldly desires.
In the book authored by, Hugh Whelchel, How then Should We Work? The author discusses how Christians should work in all avenues while serving God. How their work and the manner in which they perceive their job/career in scripture has a rich biblical meaning. The issue this paper will focus on is a key theme in Christians idea of work along with how this vocational calling affects the secular workforce.
Basically, I learned that it is crucial to take audacious steps when we see people in vulnerable situations. Additionally, it is very important for me to lead others by example, have a positive attitude even amid intense circumstances, work as a team, listen to others’ suggestions, articulate my vision to the team members, and encourage others. In addition, I learned that a leadership role has to be Christ centered and it needs to be a grace driven effort in lieu of self-seeking success. My previous experiences helped me to believe that a community of believers working together with servant-heart mindset can, definitely, transform the vulnerable societies.
He is calling us to be light to the world and follow Jesus. One of the easiest ways to follow Jesus in America is to love one another. This is one of the most important commandments God gives us. We are called to show love to those who don’t deserve it, and those who do not know the kind of love God offers. We need to see Jesus for the miracle worker, carpenter, and passionate human.
