The moment we are born our surrounding are filled images that we will interpret with whatever resources we have available at that present moment. At such an early age we are limited by our faculties. As we become older our faculties become less limited and allow us to learn more and allow us to be exposed to more of our surroundings. The lessons we will learn from our parents and/or caretakers will influence how we understand what we are experiencing. That is where the beginning of our world views are developed. I would explain it as a pattern that is woven with yarn to create a certain design. That design being our worldview.

God created us in His image and made us stewards of the Animals he had created. Our identity comes from God being created in His image we share certain characteristics like being a three part being. We are created Spirit, soul & body. We seek for something greater than we are because we have a creator.

Christianity at its core was defined by Jesus in Matthew 22:37-40. God created us to be in a personal relationship with Him. He wants us to know who He truly is and for us to know His son Jesus Christ whom He sent to die on the cross in our place so that we may have forgiveness of our sins and have eternal life in His presence.

In christianity morality is not defined by the people but is defined by God himself. God is a pure and holy God. That which is right and wrong is not relative to our subjective interpretation. What is right and wrong is
