God. It states, “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6, NIV). The Christian worldview believes that the road to salvation is through Jesus Christ. Analysis The benefits from the Christian worldview, is the reward into heaven and having eternal life once life on earth parishes. Lamca (2015) states, “The Christian worldview puts God at the center of life”. What I find confusing regarding the Christian worldview however, is if God is the creator of all that exists and did create humans, then how is it that Neanderthals and modern-day homo sapiens, us, walk the earth together for more than 5,000 years (Ko, 2016)?
