A worldview is how the world views religion and how it's used. "A worldview is "an interpretive framework"much like a pair of glasses-through which you view everything. It refers to any set of ideas, beliefs, or values that provide a framework or map to help you understand God, the world, and your relationship to God and the world. Specifically, a worldview contains a particular perspective regarding at least each of the following ten disciplines: theology, philosophy, ethics, biology, psychology, sociology, law, politics, economics, and history" (Noebel). To me, a worldview is much like water. When you look into the water, you can either see the bottom of your sink, rocks from the bottom of a pond, or not even see a bottom because it's the ocean. No matter who you are, you look at water, but everyone sees it differently, whether clear, cloudy, or shining blue, no matter how you look at it it's different, thus is a worldview. A worldview influences daily life by changing the very ways people live. Each person will live their lives differently based upon their worldviews. Christians will base their lives on serving God while a Marxist-Leninist will stay convinced there is no God to serve. A Christian worldview is a worldview in which Christians believe that God created the world, He made humanity, sent His only son to die on the cross for us, gave us the Bible to show us how to live our lives, and will one day come when the world ends. The theological view of Christianity is Theism. The Theism that Christians believe in is Trinitarian, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Their philosophy is Supernaturalism, following faith and reason. The Ethics Christians use is Moral Absolutes. The Biology for Christianity is Creationism. ... ... middle of paper ... ...e their ways of life while the other three worldviews were founded by people and do not have a book set in place to guide them. The two most common worldviews are Christianity and Islamic. The major difference between the two religions is their Theology, the difference is Trinitarian and Unitarian. Another thing that seperates Christianity and Islamic worldviews is that they are the only ones who believe in creationism opposed to evolution. If I had to choose a religion other then Christianity to follow it would be Islamic. The reason is because it's the closest to Christianity. Another reason is that the other religions seem to be created off a group of people who believed that this religion sounded right and good, that is not what religion is, religion to me is faith and reason. Believing in that, I follow Christianity because it makes the most logical sense to me.
