This view is different from others such as Atheism or Pantheism, which do not believe in the afterlife or that God is the creator of the universe. A Christian believes in one God, who also is apersonal God, as well as a relational, which is the creator and sustainer of the universe. (“Lecture1,”2015). A person with a Christian worldview lives a life by following the teaching Jesus, and has a personal relationship with God. The essential of the Christian worldview is the resurrection of Christ. God is all mighty and all-powerful. He is the creator of the heavens and earth and all thatencompasses it. “God is to be feared, known and loved as the sovereign Creator of the universe, whom all the glory, honor and praise belong to” (Diffey, 2015). In God’s sovereignty He either causes or allows things to happen. In the Christian worldview the belief is that in six 24-hour days the universe was created. On the sixth day man was created. “God then created the Gardenof Eden and told Adam and Eve not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, “for when you eat from it you will certainly die”(Gen, 1-2 NIV). Because Eve ate from the tree of knowledge death was brought into the world. But because of God’s love for the world he sent his only Son to pay for our sins. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Some 1
characteristics used to describe God are love, grace, righteous, merciful, infinite, wisdom and unchanging. In the Christian worldview God is seen as the Trinity, which is three persons in one.
