The World Andview Of Worldview

Satisfactory Essays
A worldview in the dictionary comes from the German word Weltanschauung which means a comprehensive conception or image of the universe and of humanity’s relation to it. The way I think of a worldview is as the view in which people see the world and make decisions on. Your worldview is based on what you believe and what your morals are. Paul Derengowski says, “A worldview is the interpretive philosophy that each and every thoughtful human has developed, to interpret the external data produced in the real world in order for humans to try and make sense of it.” Our worldview is kind of like glasses or contact lenses. We need to have the right “prescription” or we can’t see clearly. Your worldview is important because it guides you in life. For example, Christians do not believe in abortion so they won’t have one, or Secular Humanist don’t believe in God so they don’t have the same moral code Christians do. The bottom line is whatever your worldview is it will affect every part of your life.
The first of the top six worldviews is Christianity. Christianity is based on one God who is omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent. Christians believe there is one God with three parts called the Trinity, and that God created the world out of nothing. He created man in His image. Man was originally created good until the Fall of Man. This caused a separation from God. The only way to get to God is salvation through Jesus Christ who died on the cross for our sins. God sent His son to this earth as a baby and He later grew up to die for our sins. In order to have eternal life we have to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and confess our sins and that God is who He says he is.

... Postmodernist believe there is no god, and Cosmic Humanist believe that everything is god. Their views on morality are also different. Christians believe that our basis for morals should be based on God and His character. Muslims believe that morals come from God’s decrees. All the worldviews have slightly or majorly different views on God and His existence, on morality, on creation, and on truth. Personally I believe in the Christian worldview because I am a born-again believer and have a personal relationship with God. I don’t understand how people can believe that evolution is how the earth was created because there is evidence in how organized and detailed the earth is made that there is a God. In the end, people need to choose the one true worldview, the Christian worldview. Not all people will choose that and they are looking out of the wrong prescription.
