By asking people what their worldview is, they wouldn’t know. Starting this assignment I didn’t even know what my worldview was. I started thinking about, read about, watch videos and everything and what I have found is that worldview “is the way someone sees the world” (Merriam-Webster) so if you ask people you would get unlimited answers. The origin of Christian worldview of life is that everything that living in this world was made by God, our creator, “In the beginnings God created the heaven and earth” (Genesis 1:1 New International Version (NIV)). Many would believe that there was evolutionary process but believing in our god it is said, “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27 NIV) I believe that God created man, Genesis 1:27, as stated above paragraph, teaches that God created man in his own image. We were set apart by God to rule over all the creatures that move on the earth. “Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground. (Genesis 1:28 NIV) The bible provides a simple explanation of what it means to know God, “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 17:3 NIV) It is even stated on the meaning to live your life, such as, Luke 15:21. For the ones that walk in the faith of God they know their shortcomings and the need for morality and forgiveness, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23). To a Christian, the definition of moral behavior comes directly from the bible. Moral behavior is obedience of god’s commands. One major point that Christians believe is that, Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me (Psalms 51:5). Destiny is what lies ahead
