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…show more content…
Genesis chapters two, four, and nine address human relationships. Human relationships can be divided into two categories: their relationships with each other and their relationship with God.

I also believe that our relationships should be full of love and respect. I also believe that our relationship with God is one full of love and
