Name Chelsea Tsasse Course: Christian worldview Date: November 3, 2019 Instructor: Professor Amanda Jenkins Benchmark - Gospel Essentials In Christianity, God is the eternal being who created mankind. He is a not a creator or someone who simply “creates,” he is the creator, because “through him all things were made; and without him nothing was that has been made” (John 1:3). He is the reason why we are alive and our purpose on earth is to love him, follow him, and devote our life to him. As Christians, we need to live our lives and try our absolute hardest to follow him and rid ourselves of sin and stay away from those who are going to cause us to move away from him and those who are going to cause us to sin. Our lord and savior Jesus Christ, died on the cross, and accepted the sin of man against himself. As a perfectly innocent man, he accepted the injustices of man against man. Since Jesus died for us and our sins, we owe him to live our lives to the fullest. We must strive to do all that we can do to be good Christians. Humanity, God, Jesus and the Restoration will show us how to discover and take pride in our worldview. God In the beginning, God created the universe and all the people in it. “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1: 27). In just six days, God created all of mankind. He is the most powerful being. “God saw all that he had made and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning on the sixth day” (Genesis 1:31). In todays modern world, humans live in a three- 1
dimensional world. A person can act like someone else, or even look like someone else. But no person can actually be the same as another person. “God, however, lives without the limitations of a three- dimensional universe. He is spirit and he is infinitely more complex than we are.” (Velarde, Robert) That is why Jesus the son can be different from the Father. And yet the same.
