Faith is the act of believing (Mappes, D. A. (2010). Our mark is to love one another despite differences. Christian worldview should not be confusing to anyone that is looking for salvation and wants their live to change for good. Jesus is the only way to God.
Christians should not be silent on social issues due to their size, moral compass and Gods activeness. They should not judge the lives of the people they know but gently criticize them while displaying Jesus’ love and acceptance. Social issues around the world personally affect many Christians. ‘All these issues and many others affect both Christians and those with no religious faith,’ about one third, ‘32% of the World population is Christian . So Christians should utilise their numbers and partake in social issues that directly concern them or issues which create, ‘the stirring of the love of God which cannot be contained,’ within them.
They would rather have faith and hope than riches and material things. Another song would be Why We Sing is about someone who puts their faith in God and they feel as nothing can go wrong with God behind them. Those two songs stuck out to me the most because they each represent a side of me as a follower of God. I truly believe that without the help God and using his judgment we would all truly be lost individuals or sinners even more than we are. The so... ... middle of paper ... ...all completely different individuals and go through different struggles, but if you follow God an listen to his word you will not lose.
Christian worldview’s response to the problem of evil and suffering is a reality because they are born into a broken world in the result of the fall (Hiles & Smith, 2014). Christians understand that “suffering increases our compassion and equips us to comfort others who suffer” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). Also, Christians understand that Jesus died for humanity to gain eternal life. If people reject the purifying death of Jesus, then they will suffer the consequences of God’ rebellion (Gockel, 2009). This means that God will not save them, nor force them to believe in Him; in which they will be condemning themselves to suffer.
Even though there is and will always be some kind of questions about Christianity, there is no question about you needing to have faith in God and his biblical words in order to get to eternal life. Even through your trials and tribulations you have to keep the faith in the Lord, Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5). Hopefully, this will give you a better understanding on what a Christian Worldview is. The beliefs of living by the word of God, some of the history of it, and the importance of it.
The Problem of Human Suffering The Christian tradition is haunted by a significant mark: Suffering. The question that arises from this suffering is if God is the omnipitous being that Christians believe Him to be, why would He let His people, whom he loves, suffer great pains and horrible deaths? According to premises derived from theologians and followers of the Bible, God is "all loving". If that is true, then God would not want His people to suffer, but by just looking around us we see that suffering, in fact, is happening. If there is suffering going on that God does not want, then He would be able to stop that suffering since He also believed to be "all powerful", yet suffering still goes on.
The Christian faith focuses on the orientation of the human heart behind human thoughts and actions. Living by faith is a beautiful alternative to the way people think of themselves and the way they live in relation to others in their daily lives (Merrick, 2014). Christians see themselves in terms of God’s profound love for them but not in terms of what they do. The teachings of the Christian faith; nonviolence, non-retaliation, inward integrity, selflessness, and love your neighbor as yourself provide the framework for ethical thinking. Although, adopting belief in Christianity can bring forth confusion in the heart and mind causing agony of learning to sacrifice one’s rightful claims for personal justice for the restoration of another (Merrick, 2014).
The main themes of the book were about faithfulness toward what you believe in no matter what society says or the dangers. God is trustworthy and does everything for a reason no matter if the person is in the worst spot ever in life they have to believe there is something better in the future. Also Gods ability to save his children in the face of danger and will give them justice, and that god gives messages in mysterious ways. In today’s society everyone has freedom of religion, on the other hand, there are still allot of people who discriminate against other groups. Now a day it’s more accepted to sin over and over than be someone who follows the commandments and be faithful to god or follow what they believe if they are the minority.
Discipleship involves the acceptance of God’s Word to the believer. This is obviously important as it would be difficult to follow Jesus without the acceptance of His teachings. Denying of one’s self includes laying down our earthly desires to follow Jesus which can be tough. The world wants us to look for pleasure and enjoyment in possessions, experiences, and other areas that only bring temporary satisfaction. God does not want His disciples to live dull, boring lives that have no fun, but when those things interfere with our calling to serve Him, it becomes an issue.
To enter the kingdom of God is every Christian dream so if you believe in God and do this in any way possible it won't affect you getting into the Kingdom of God and on earth you are a true disciple, you just have to believe. Therefore I believe that if you want to enter the kingdom of God you have act on it meaning that you must follow God in any way possible and also to make sure that in times of trouble that you turn to God but not against him as it is very important that you present yourself as a good disciple to others so that hopefully you will be bring them much closer to the kingdom of God.
