Importance of Worldviews

- Cosgrove describes a worldview as “a set of assumptions or beliefs about reality that affect how we think and how we live” (p. 19). A person’s worldview has been molded from the day they were born by family, friends, media, and even strangers. Worldviews are important because they allow us to “develop a deep comprehensive faith that will stand against the unrelenting tide of our culture’s non-biblical ideas” (Tackett). Our actions also tend to mimic our beliefs—for example, if you believe that there is life after death like Christians do, your priorities should reflect your dedication to follow Christ and not be of this world (John 15:19 NLT)....   [tags: Cosgrove, Reality]

Worldviews of Thomas Paine

- People begin to think and form an opinion at an early age. Some of our opinions may be immature at first; however over the years, one’s opinions tend to grow and develop.

After taking The Art of Being Human class, my personal worldview has changed to a belief in having compassion for everybody in the world according to classic Buddhist teachings. This mindset goes beyond those teachings, however, to almost a natural way of thinking that if humans care for everything on earth a lot of our man-made problems would go away....   [tags: The Great Gatsby, F.
