garden of Eden. As a Godless man believes there is an explanation for everything even if they cannot explain it. They spend their whole lives searching for something people already have. Faith stops the search and God continues to give us the good in his will but exposes us to the bad to remind us of His might. Article 1- “What is a worldview and why is it important to me?” Has your answers to either of the first two questions changed after reading article 1? Using the term “worldview” is the only thing I would change in relation to the first two questions. I stand firm on my answers. The article suggests that the worldview is often not shared but instead a perspective. The article explained what I mentioned about the non-believer constantly searching for answers to phenomenon and decisions we often give to God.
PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS 4 Do you believe in absolute truth? Is there more than one way/religion to understanding absolute truth about God and the meaning of life? As a Christian, I strongly believe in absolute truth. My belief is that God presents himself to the world so that they may follow. Misunderstandings lead us to believe you have to be perfect and do things a certain way to join the body of Christ but the bible says, “surely there is not righteous man on earth who does good and never sins” (Ecclesiastes 7:20 ESV).

We as human beings experience some of the harshest feelings and emotions with both physical and mental trauma. Through all that, however, we can still be redeemed. The bible says, “in Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace” (Ephesians 1:7 ESV). The background can change the temporary situation but does not have a permanent presence in the outcome. The Gospel is spread throughout the world to reach those souls who are in situations that can impact a personal outcome. Are things such as true love, beauty, and justice really possible, or are those values totally determined by cultural beliefs and norms?
PERSONAL WORLDVIEW & BUSINESS ETHICS 5 My belief to all the above is yes. We as human beings like to make things like true love and beauty tangible, which is not a bad thing. I see all things above as tangible in this life and if not experienced a reward in heaven which is the intangible. A lack of belief in the intangible is a
