This, it is most commonly referred as religions or worldviews. We live in a worldthat has developed extensive ideas and opinions on how one should see the world and how lifeshould be lived. One of the major worldviews that are taking over humanity is the ChristianWorldview. This paper will give a brief description of the most important areas Christianity hastowards life. Being Christian can mean a lot of things, however, having a Christian worldviewwill coincide with explanation to questions like who is God and what is he like; it will ideas ofhow Christians see humanity; the significance Jesus has towards Christianity; and how Christiansfind restoration to all the problems, sin, and imperfection inherited to humanity. At last,analyzing and reflecting on all the main areas of Christianity, will provide a clear understandingof what a Christian worldview entails.GodIn the very beginning of the bible, Genesis chapter one, explains that God is the creator ofall living and not living things in the universe. King David in Psalms 145 gives a song of praiseto God, in which gives a profound description of what is God like. Since the beginning of thebible and throughout the biblical history, the old testament, we see a majestic God with profoundfeelings that puts beauty in everything He does. God has many characteristics that make Him the
only perfect God. From all the characteristics that define Him, Psalms 145: 17 says: “The Lord isrighteous in all his ways and kind in all his works” (ESV). The fact that He is Righteous Godgives humanity the hope that we are looking up to a God that will not disappoint in all his Lawsand promises to his creation (Whitt, 2011). In addition, He is merciful, loving, and kind towardshis creation. Our God created everything we know. He created the heavens and the earth. Hecreated sky and the seas. He created all the creatures that are extinct and those who are stillwalking the surface of the earth and vast spaces in the sky. He created the molecules that cometogether to form the plants and vegetables his creatures need to sustain life. He created every cellthat makes the organs, that make the human body. He is the creator of all humanity knows.
