ReflectionPersonally, I am unsure what I would call myself. There are many instances when I question whether or not God exists. I truly want to believe in him. I want to believe in a higher power that watches over us and protects us. What still remains troublesome to me, is all of the suffering that occurs to innocent people, especially children that are new and have not had the chance to show if they would be sinful or not. It also makes me question his existence because itis taught that God is loving, kind and just yet if someone doesn’t know about God because they weren’t taught about him, he will turn his back on them in the afterlife and not permit them into Heaven. What I do agree with that correlates with the Christian beliefs is that we are all here to care for one another. There is good and evil and it is our duty to try and deter one another from the evil that lurks in the world. I try to pay my blessings forward when I can and feel that if I do good, eventually, good will be done to me. ConclusionThe Christian world view is one that gives explanation to how we came to be in existenceand how we are expected to live. Christianity teaches that God created the world and humanity with a purpose and plan in mind. Once God created humans to take care of the world he created,they fell to the temptations of sin. God strongly stated that evil temptations were not to be entertained and disobedience of his word would have severe ramifications. To support this whilestill being the loving God he is, he sent his only son to serve as the sacrificial lamb to die for our sins. To further prove his existence to his people, once Jesus was buried in the tomb and secured by a heavy boulder, he rose on the third day ascending to Heaven to live eternally for following 5
God’s word and doing what he was sent to do by spreading his word and dying for him. Faith will forever be tested and society is expected to have a love of God that is greater than any other influences that may try and cause them to stray from him. By throwing ourselves at his mercy and confessing our sins will ensure entry into Heaven. 6
