Do you believe in absolute truth? Is there more than one way/religion to understanding absolute truth about God and the meaning of life? I do believe in absolute truth. I do not feel that there are multiple ways to understanding absolute truth. To have multiple methods of understanding absolute truth, or to believe that truth is relative to each person is to bend the truth to avoid accountability. I believe there is a clear cut truth that God provides for us in the Bible and by having a personal relationship with him. Do you believe that humans have free will in their decisions, or are they entirely a product of their personal environment, circumstances, upbringing, etc. Yes, I do believe humans have free will in their decisions; because God deemed it so. God allows us all to have free will and allows us to make our own decisions. But God also wants us to seek Him out in making these decisions. Although God knows our actions and thoughts before we do, I believe he gives us the choice and waits for us to make the right decision in seeking Him in all we do. 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 4 I do believe that true love, beauty and justice are possible, but I believe we have misperceptions about what these things truly mean. Society has brainwashed people into believing true love should resemble a fairy tale, when in fact, true love is something that needs care, nurturing, and patience. People are beautiful in numerous ways, but society has led us to believe that beauty is only physical. Genuine true love, beauty and justice will only be possible through belief in God. STEP 2 Have your answers to any of the last questions changed after reading article 2? No, my naswers have not changed after reading article 2 in the Worldview Readings. 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? It does not seem odd or offensive to see Jesus Christ as the foundation of meaning and life. Jesus is our Savior and died upon the cross for us to be saved. Jesus showed us pure love by sacrificing himself for us, and this is the strongest foundation faith can be made of. Jesus has shown us many ways to live, love and teach to maintain a strong foundation and to provide framework to others so that they may begin to build their foundation as Christians.
