How My Beliefs About Origins Impact My WorldviewIn my opinion, beliefs about the origin of the universe plays a large part on how we live our life. While I agree that Christians see the universe as a creation of God and have a goal to serve his purpose, I believe that even those who don't believe in the same creation theory still have a purpose. I hear phrases like, "the Lord will help me through this" or “God has a plan for me" and I love the idea that each event in life has symbolism and can be used as a life guide. Even if we don't accept that God created the universe, we can still live a similar life as a Christian with a lasting meaning to life. God will accept us, as he accepts all of his children (Christian Worldview Lecture 101, 2019).
How My Beliefs About Origins Impact My WorldviewHumanity is a gift, therefore appreciation, a will to live for goals, and gratitude should be given to whoever one may credit creation to. We live in a remarkable place where our lungs breathe for us and every aspect of our body is perfected and created to absorb light, produce energy, and thrive. As part of the humanity aspect, I believe we must not only take care of ourselves, but our brothers and sisters and our home earth. We need to cherish all that our home Earth allows and gives back to us. I do think that the spirits created humanity to take care of earth whether it was Adam or an atom first.
