What is a Worldview?

A world view is the way that a person expresses his or her life. The decisions they form, the goals they set to achieve and the way they embrace others all are based on how they perceive the world around them. This perception is based on a foundation of belief, a worldview. A Christian worldview is based on the Bible, and that life first began when God spoke life into existence (“The Holy Bible (new King James version)”), 1988, bk. Genesis 1:26).

With the character of God, Christians should treat others as they would want to be treated themselves, with love, respect and forgiveness when fallen short of the Glory of the Lord (nKJv, Romans 13:1-7). A Christian should live in the word of God, not of this world. Caring for monetary things more than the scripture will not give anyone a future (Matthew 6:24). Never has there been a U-Haul following a hearse with the deceased ones possessions for them to take with them. Christians have a destiny that is promised to them from the time of their new birth.
