Name: Ashleigh Frank Course: CWV-101 Date: 6/15/18 Instructor: Bob Greene Benchmark - Gospel Essentials A worldview is the outline from which we interpret reality and make sense of life. One way to describe worldview is like a set of lenses that portrays the way we see the world. What we believe becomes the force behind every emotion, decision and action. We make choices about life, ethics, and morals and how we should live based completely on our worldview. Whether mindful or unintentional everyone has a worldview, however, not everyone has the same views of the world. Those that relate to a Christian worldview have beliefs in God and Jesus. They have devoted his/her life to abiding by the teachings of Jesu, our Savior. The fundamentals of the Christian worldview include God, Humanity, and Jesus.

Accordingly, the Bible never attempts to prove His existence; rather it assumes His existence from the very beginning. What the Bible NKJV does is reveal the nature, character, and work of God.

God created the universe and everything in it. Although at times it is hard to understand how He did it, it is clear He created all life. In the very beginning, Genesis talks about how God spoke everything into existence. On his very first day, God created light and divided it from the darkness. On the second day God made a firmament and divided the waters. On the third day God made land appear and added grass herbs and trees. On the fourth day God made two great lights, one to rule the day and one to rule the night. On the fifth day God created the birds and sea creatures and every living thing that moves. On the sixth day God made everything that creeping thing and beast on earth, each according to its kind. He then created man in His own image, male and female, (Genesis 127). This not only shows God’s authority over humanity, but his everlasting deep love for everyone. God did not have to create the world,
