Candace Kim CWV-101 May 31, 2020 Dr. Christian Wilder Benchmark - Gospel Essentials The Christian worldview is one of the most common amongst all worldviews. In fact, many European, Western, and Asian countries hold the Christian worldview and there are myriad different interpretations of the Christian worldview the world. However, there are many concepts that remain consistent through the Christian worldview: eternal life, redemption of sin, and the salvation of man. In addition, the most important aspect to the Christian worldview being that God loved the world so much that he sent his one and only son to die for humanity’s sin to give humanity eternal life (John 3:16). This act of sacrificial love proves God’s unconditional love for humanity and the existence of the upside-down kingdom and is the reason why followers of Christ believe they have the privilege of eternal life after death. With that being said, every one of God’s children are made whole again because of Jesus’ sacrifice. God Since the beginning of time, God has been the creator of the world and everything that inhabits the world. There are no events that document God’s creation. Moreover, there are no indications that his dominion will come to an end. God has many attributes that can be separated into two different categories: communicable and noncommunicable. Communicable attributes are characteristics that he shares with humanity and noncommunicable attributes are characteristics that are not translated into humans.

God created the garden of Eden to be able to walk with his creation that was made in his image, humanity (Diffey, 2015). First, he made Adam from dust and later created Eve from Adam’s rib because God believed that it humans are not meant to be alone (Genesis 2:18). When in the garden, God told Adam and Eve they could eat anything that grew in the garden but forbid them from eating the fruit of the tree of knowledge and of good and evil. They disobeyed God and God punished them and all of humanity indefinitely. Through Genesis 2, God’s characteristics and relationship with humanity are defined. Humanity According to the Christian Worldview, humanity has a very special relationship with God because they were made in his image. Humanity’s purpose was described in Genesis 2 when God created Adam and Eve. God created Adam and Eve to be fruitful to grow their population and to have dominion over the land and all of God’s other creation (Genesis 1:28). Moreover, God
