Christie Oldham CWV 101 June 15, 2017 Ric Hernando Gospel Essentials God In this composition, we will talk about Gospel Essentials, it will focus on the defining Christian worldview of God In addition we will explore viewpoints of humanity, Jesus, restoration and study of Christianity. We will conclude with a review of my reflection on the similarities between the Catholic and Christian worldview. The Christian worldview, unlike others, is not only completely clear but consistent when breaking down theological questions such as what is our purpose? Who or what created our universe? Is there an afterlife? It is difficult for humans to ever fully understand God as his greatness is beyond comprehension. However, we do know about many different parts of God. The Old Testament fathers, prophets and Jesus all describe God in different parts of the gospel. Psalm 145 describes God also referred to as the Trinity, which includes God, the Son and the Holy Ghost or spirit, as righteousness, compassionate, faithful and mighty. God is the endless being who created all the matter in this universal. Our entire universe, outer space, all the planets; suns, moon, asteroids, stars and other celestial beings are a part of God’s miraculous creations. The creation narrative in Genesis focuses on the creation of the earth. The earth itself as well as all the plants and animals that inhabit earth are a part of God's creation. Humanity is often referred to as the pinnacle of creation. ("Origins") 1 This is because God made humanity with purpose, free will and in his own image. Human Nature I believe that human nature has two main viewpoints of Christian Worldview. The main idea is that humans are created in Gods image, he made man to emulate him. The secondary concept is that man is flawed, we are by nature sinners. I feel this was clearly depicted as early on as Adam and Eve's actions in the Garden of Eden. Instead of believing in God and learning from him, they ate from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. God intended from humanity to know only goodness that is why he warned Adam and Eve in Genesis, not eat fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil or else they would die, but I believe God knew that Adam and Eve would create sin by their actions. I believe while he wanted them to be good
