The Bible Worldview
The book of Romans provides us an understanding and the living out the Christian faith. It will tell us what to believe, what truth to hang on to, and how to walk as a believer in this world. Remember, no one had Bibles at this time, believers relied on teachings provided by the apostles to help them grow in their faith and learn about Jesus Christ. Paul wrote this letter to help the believers understand that salvation is by God’s Grace Alone, through Faith in Jesus Christ.
The Natural World
All of the natural worlds has formed by an all spiritual God. The depiction of the natural world is an expression of God’s everlasting blessing. When philosophy leaves out God and looks for answers to life only within the natural world, it cannot discover reality. God created the natural world and everything in existence. God revealed a lot about himself in the Bible. Because we are human, there is a lot we can not understand about God because He lives outside of the natural world. We need to see the creations as God intended we need to look at the natural world in the way we were meant to look at it. See it with Psalm 104 eyes. A fundamental principle expresses everything in the natural world is divinely connected to that of the spirit. We are in a prophetic season declared through creation.
No liberty nor justice while worshipping humans or their “creations”, freedom and peace are God’s. Of all God’s creations humans are the only one’s who killed species(Patch Adams). 2 Corinthians 5:1-5 “Of all the fears that plague the heart of man, none is greater than the fear of death.” It is our greatest fear, the sum of all other concerns. We are afraid to die. We are afraid of what happens when we die death is the fundamental human problem life is short and so uncertain. “What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes” (James 4:14B) Most of us try to define ourselves when we accomplish by our achievements, our victories; our wins help defines us, and instead of acknowledging God as the source of many good things in our lives. We want to get the credit for our achievements. We want to be known as the winner; the leader people pride can get the best of them. As humans we do have many limitations, we need to rely on God. If people lose sight of their identity and try to convince themselves that there the winner, they will miss the actual achievement in their life, God, is who made the universe calls you his son.
Handling human relationships is the most important life task to accomplish. Handling them well requires understanding, wisdom and maturity. In John. 16, Jesus, He told his disciples, I have many things to say to you but you can’t bear them now. No humans are allowed to choose what families they are born into it is chosen for us before we arrive on Planet Earth. We are all selected by a Higher power to have an earthly experience in a decaying, body of sinful flesh, which eventually dies an earthly death. Fortunately, in our short, life’s journey as we get older and develop relationships with others most of us live with things that make it possible to use God-given morals to make decisions that will determine our future. And to choose what family members, friends acquaintances, etc. we want, or wish to have in our lives. It is imperative not to trample on other people’s freedoms into our own. Even if we feel to need to think that way. And wanting to do it for someone else instead of our own. It’s important that people have the right to their choices, opinion, and beliefs, as God gave us all a free will. The characteristic of human nature is we don’t like being forced into decisions that we are not capable making ourselves. We always resist compulsion even when we face other serious decisions. It is important that we choose things for ourselves. God gave us over the agency, and he will always respect our freedom of making a choice.
All cultures have prevailing philosophies of thought which guide their choices and actions. Food is a reflection of culture, lifestyle, history, and religion. Human individuality and self-expression are devoted to the relationship between human’s inner world with human’s behaviour in society. The society still restricts expression and thought of a person. An individual should remain who they are, and that person should perceive them in the way they are. Our culture’s persistent tendency to prefer a child’s dreams about heaven rather to the truth of God’s Word betrays a lack of confidence in the sufficiency of Scripture. It suggests laziness and a desire to have questions answered that the Bible doesn’t address. God has given us all we need in the Word. Moreover, God has told that “at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things” (Romans 2:1). God does not know our throwaway culture. God does not discard anyone. People Cultivate of God’s loving culture and our family has been blessed to be part of it.
How this assignment has touched my worldview?
This assignment I can say it did touched my worldview my religion hasn’t changed, but I do think the book of Romans is seriously so mind-blowing it is so challenging, and it shows how much I need Him more every day. The book of Romans is such a good reminder of who we are in Christ. I know that every book of the Bible is important, but the book of Romans is awesome to shape and clarify our theology on worldview. The book of Romans has so much to offer “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
The book of Romans its biblical worldviews has a view on human, identity, natural world, human relationships, and culture. According to the organization Focus on the Family, a biblical worldview is based on infallible Word of God. When you believe in the Bible is true, then you allow it to be the foundation of everything you say and do (Tackett, 2015). Paul teaches us in the book of Romans that God is just and the justifier of all who are in Christ Jesus.
