Name Kevin SchoenfeldCourse CWV-101Date 10/26/19Instructor Michael TindleBenchmark - Gospel EssentialsA worldview is a set of beliefs one holds that they use to live their life by. It helps to guide us through our interactions in life, from the ways that we treat others, to the choices that we ultimately make in life. While there are many different worldviews in existence, the beliefs ofthe Christian worldview can be found at the core of the majority of them. The Christian worldview is based on the belief in the Trinity, which is that of the existence of God in the form of three people, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. It also believes that God is the creator of the entire universe and everything that it is made of. I will provide a detailed account and analysis of what makes up the Christian worldview by addressing its main topics of God, Humanity, Jesus, and Restoration, along with providing a personal reflection of my own worldview. GodAccording to the Christian worldview, God is the sole creator of everything in our universe. He created heaven and earth, along with all that encompasses it and he did so in just sixdays’ time. One thing that sets apart the Christian worldview apart from others is that while it is based on a monotheistic viewpoint, there is also a belief in the Trinity. The basis of Trinity is thatwhile there is only one physical God, that he is actually comprised of three individual people, theFather, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. While there is speculation surrounding if all three were 1
present upon the creation of the universe, God fully utilized all three as necessary to ensure that his word was followed and he received the ultimate worship. “While Genesis 1 and 2 present God primarily as a sovereign Creator, these are certainly not God’s only attributes” (Diffey, 2015, para. 11). God possessed many different characteristics, some of which only pertained to him, but others that showed him as personable. A few examples would be that he was: eternal, allknowing and present, good, loving, faithful and holy (Diffey, 2015).
