Moreover, the Bible—a collection of books that are the teachings and guiding principles for Christians—has been translated into countless languages to spread the message of God; the Bible is broken into two parts: the old testament and the new testament. Within this paper, the topics that will be discussed relate both sections of the Bible, as they are a cohesive telling of God’s divine plan; more specifically the topics will include: God, His relationship with humanity, Jesus the Son of God, the restoration of humanity with God, an analysis of the Christian worldview, and a self-reflection of how a different worldview (Buddhism) compares to Christianity. GodThe acknowledgment and understanding of God are paramount to the Christian worldview, as this is how one begins to develop and grow an eternal relationship with Him. Foremost, God is the sole creator of the universe; this concept of God's sovereignty is so important that the first sentence of the Bible is, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1, NIV). Through this scripture, one can determine that God is the ultimate reality for Christians, and though God's words and his will, all anything can be done ("Topic 2 Overview”, 2017). Moreover, it is essential for Christians to understand that God 1
exists as a Triune or more often referred to as the Trinity; this is the idea that God is three persons—God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God the Holy Spirit—and they collectively make one God (Diffey, 2015). Lastly, since God is omniscience, it is essential to mention that he has the perfect judgment in decisions that he has made. Displayed throughout the Bible, from thefall of man to the sacrifice of Jesus to restore humanity, one is able to understand that everythingthat was done by God had been clearly thought-out, and with his perfect judgment, everything is resolved the way God intended.
