So far in what you’ve read and in what you’ve experienced in life, does it seem odd or offensive to see Jesus Christ as the foundation for life and meaning? I do not personally believe that it is offensive or odd to see Jesus and the foundation of life or meaning. I believe that we are set in this world at this time because we are here for something bigger than ourselves. I believe that life would be bad if the only thing people could look forward to in life is building their foundation on themselves. Allowing our lives to be built on something bigger than us can allow us to see the bigger picture on who we are called to be, believer or not. STEP 3 Have your answers to either of the last two questions changed after reading article 3? My answers are reading the third article have not changed. God is God whether I choose to believe in him or not. Our lives are products of our daily choices and experiences. As a believer and Christian, I believe that having a foundation built on Christ is the only way to truly have satisfaction and happiness in society. When one knows who they are and knows who God is, I believe that this is a great way to build a foundation on true love.
PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS 6 Now that you’ve read all of the articles, how has your view of meaning, ethics and your own worldview changed? What questions or comments do you have about what you’ve read? I agreed with most of what the three articles had to say. I do believe that today society has based much of their decisions on themselves and truly have cracked their foundations. I believe that we have the free will to do whatever we want, whenever we want, and this has often hurt society more than helped. Since we have access to whatever we want and can have the option to believe whatever we want, in my opinion, this has truly caused us to refute the meaning of the message of the Gospel as the third article talked about.

PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS 8 Business Ethical Practices Introduction Ethics is a term that is often based off of the person setting the boundaries in which ethics are placed. Schwartz, & Weber (2006) talked about how ethics are often validated in the company that it was set. When business ethics are placed in a company and truly followed by the employees, it allows the business structure to work without fear of people doing the wrong thing often. The business code of ethics can help employees stop lying, cheating or stealing which may cause harm to the company. Though ethics are something that is in place, this does not always prevent employees from choosing to do the wrong thing. When a company follows the ethical code set in place, that company can do things like never before.
