Genesis is the first book of the Bible and a large amount of information about the world can come from reading Genesis. What we learn from Genesis greatly influences our worldview, which is the framework of how we view the world and make value judgments about life. A worldview answers the questions of origin, identity, meaning, morality, and destiny. I believe that I have a biblical worldview and support the Bible in its teachings. When looking at the book of Genesis, specifically Genesis 1-11, key information is learned that shapes our worldview regarding the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and civilization. These four concepts are key to a solid foundation of a worldview. A worldview of the natural world can vary immensely but Genesis provides explanation of the natural world.

So much information can be gained from Genesis and it tells us what our worldview should be like. We should remember that the natural world is filled with wickedness and corruption after Adam and Eve committed the first sin. However, God made man in his image and we should never forget that. God also said that man was good. In human relationships, man is meant to be with woman and there no other way. Civilization has improved so much and man has accomplished all this while having different languages and that is because of God. I believe that I have a biblical worldview and much of that is reassured in Genesis 1-11. I believe in the concepts introduced in Genesis 1-11.
