characteristics. The bible says, humans were created “very good” by a loving God (Genesis 1:31). What is Human Purpose? To love and serve God. To follow God’s plan and save your soul. Humans should have children and extend, as he said, “Be fruitful and become many, fill the earth and subdue it” (Genesis 1:28, 2:8, 9, 15). What is the root cause of Human Problems? Humans are like trees (Mark 8:24); you see what’s on the outside and not what is really important, the inside. Looking beyond the surface, seeing what is deeper and what makes them who they are. The core system, as it sins and has fear (Romans 3:23). The biggest problem is fear.
Jesus What is the True Identity of Jesus? Jesus is the bread of life, the light of the world, he is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (John 6:48, 8:12). Jesus is fully man and fully God (Lecture 4). He is “the word” (John 1:14) the “only begotten Son” (John 3:16). Jesus is the creation of God’s Love. What did Jesus Do? He created heaven and earth. Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice and died for our sins so those who believe will have eternity in heaven (1 John 2:2). He would serve others, like the foot washing he did for one of the disciples (John 13:3-17). Why is the Identity of Jesus and His work Significant for the Christian Worldview? His identity brings God into our lives more and it solidifies we are from him and was created in his image. The Christian Worldview lets us see life in a new way, it allows us to see God’s plan. Restoration What is the Solution to Human Problems According to the Christian Worldview? As stated in (Lecture 5), Christianity offers salvation by trusting in Christ’s good works. Accepting him into your life as your savior and simply confessing your sins to God and turning from them to live in obedience (Lecture 5). Keeping strong faith and believing in him is a blessing as he rewards those who believe and who follow him.
