Jordan MilazzoCWV-101May 26, 2018Peter RasorBenchmark - Gospel EssentialsIn today’s world, there are numerous guides out there that tell one how to live out their best life. Around every corner there seems to be self help books, live and on-air therapists, and even apps for phones with psychics who are available twenty-four hours, seven days a week! There are plenty of options when it comes to navigating one’s life and how to obtain true happiness and success. This is what the secular world is all about, obtaining the most material possessions, not apologizing for who you are, and indulging in self-pleasure. However, there is one worldview that can give someone true, spiritual happiness along with love, mercy and grace;this often misinterpreted religion is known as Christianity. When someone who is born into Christianity or somewhere along the way discovers this faith they will finally be able to seek out answers about God, humanity, Jesus, restoration, analysis, and reflection. If one believes then all of of these concepts can be answered and discovered with a Christian Worldview. GodToday, God remains to be a mystery for those who do not know Him or continue to deny Him. Christians are able to see who God truly is everywhere and everyday. According to Chapter3: Wisdom in the Beginning, God has many attributes that give insight into God’s true nature. In this section it tells that God’s attributes do in fact include being holy, eternal, loving, jealous, andfaithful. Digging deeper into who God is He is also known to be all-powerful, all-knowing, and 1
all-present. According to Romans 1:20 this shows God’s characteristics by telling believers that God Himself is eternal, divine, and the creator of everything that is good. God created everythingthat is in the universe! In God’s original creation He made everything free from evil, sin, and decay. In His creation there was a perfect order, meaning that when He was creating the Heavensand the Earth there was a specific order in which He made everything. This perfect order can be seen in Genesis 1-2. HumanityThe concept of humanity has been subjected to theories and tests for centuries, but Christians know the truth about humanity. According to CWV-101 Lecture 2 Notes, humanity was created in God’s perfect image, but it did not remain this way for very long. This section also states that because we were made in God’s image that we automatically have similar characteristics as God.
