Kiley Leonard CWV 101 April 23, 2020 Professor Pasley Benchmark – Gospel Essentials Christianity and the Christian worldview, like most religions, have always led to religious discussions and differences between people ever since the idea of Christianity became a human staple. Even amongst Christians themselves there have been many different beliefs and ideas on how Christians should live their lives. Even though the worldviews differ amongst groups of people there is a stable foundation that remains consistent for all. The redemption of sin and the chance at an eternal life with God. This stems from Jesus dying on the cross to save us from our humanly sin. Through the belief in Jesus and his selfless self sacrifice it has also granted us God’s undying love. The Christian worldview creates many questions that have to do with God, humanity, Jesus, and restoration and what it specifically means to the different individuals who are followers of Christ.

As we know from Genesis Adam and Eve did eat from the tree and instead of them dying like God said they would He shows them redemption in not killing him and punishing them for not listening. This was beginning of God making human life more difficult and creation of sin, temptation, and death. This not only shows how much love God has to give but also shows that there are consequences to our actions and if we disobey what He says. God is consistent, certain, sturdy, and will never abandon you, He is right by our side through the ups and the downs. Humanity Humanity goes hand in hand with human nature, the definition is the “quality or state of being human” (Meriam-Webster, 2020). Humanity can be different for every person and every religion and worldview as well. Humanity when referring to the Christian worldview is the image God had when creating us.
