Alyssa Stanton CWV-101 9:50 November 4, 2018 Justin McLendon Benchmark – Gospel Essentials In this Christian worldview class, we all have learned about the three persons of God and how he can relate to us on different personal levels. Within the Christian Worldview it is believed that God is the center of our lives, and everything we do revolves around Him. How Jesus was sent from heaven to be humanities atonement for our sins, as it is impossible for us to be right with God on our own. This shows to be an act of mercy and grace.

When death and pain were nonexistent, before they became the consequences from humanities fall. Back then Adam and Eve had their own relationship with the earth, with god, and each other.
