What does it mean to be a Christian? To have a Christian Worldview one must be in a relationship with God. Being a Christian means that you have changed on the inside and are not controlled from the outside. Not whether you watch scary movies, go to Church every Sunday, orif you have committed a sin. God loves us for who we are and how we live with him in our life. Giving ourselves to Jesus Christ is a very rewarding experience! God is bigger than each and every one of us that live in today’s society. God is Trinity: Father, Son and Spirit. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are distinguishable persons within the Trinity and have different functions, yet they are perfectly united in the being of God. God is a completely self-fulfilled person. He didn’t create us because he was lonely or needy in any sense.No, he created out of his generosity and kindness. God is sovereign! He is everywhere and knows everything. God is loving, compassionate, and merciful. He is good. He rules over all and is the final cause of all that happens in his universe. He is the creator of everything! Human nature is that which makes us distinctly human. One of the chief distinctions between human beings and the rest of creation is our ability to reason. No other creature has this ability, and there’s no question that this is a unique gift bestowed by God. Our reason enables us to reflect on our own nature and the nature of God and to derive knowledge of God's will for His creation. No other part of God’s creation has a nature capable of reason. Originally, human nature was perfect by virtue of having been created by God. The Bible teaches that human beingswere created “very good”, but that goodness was marred by the sin of Adam and Eve. This caused the entire human race to fall victim to the sin nature. The good news is any single moment a person trusts in Christ, he receives a new nature.
