BIBL 110everyone in this world still has a worldview. A worldview is how some precieves the world we live in and how it works. Each person has a different worldview, some may be similar with others and some may be the complete opposite of what another might believe, but Paul makes very bold and courages statements defending and defining the Christian worldview. In specific, abiblical worldview. In this essay, we will discuss topics such as who God is and His character, creation and how it all began, sin and what it has done to this world and the people in it, salvation, ethics, and lastly eschatology.When it comes to a biblical worldview or even any worldview, it comes with a strong foundation. In a biblical worldview, Christ followers see and believe that God is the foundation of everything. The one true God is a God of many characteristics and Paul did an excellent job discussing His characteristics in the book of Romans. In Romans 1 alone, Paul discusses the righteousness of God all the way to God being the creator. Paul writes to the Romans, reminding them of who our God is and what He is all about. Our God is a God who is just and wrathful but also a God who is loving and sovereign over all. God who had created all of us had called us to worship Him but had also given us a choice to love Him back. Just as it says in 1 John 4:19, “Welove because he first loved us.”. Because of He is loving and merciful, He gives us the option to love Him back even though He has the ability to make us love Him. Not only this, but in the book of Romans, He also talks about how He is the wisest of the wise and that He knows whats best for us and in that gives us a hope and promise to long for something much greater than what is in this world. God is eternal, never vanishing, and always constant.

We were born with an identity problem, because we are descendants of Adam and Eve who sinned, and their act of independence passed down from generation to generation. In Romans 1:21-24, these people knew God, but their hearts and minds had become darkened and they reveled in wickedness. They thought of themselves to be wise, however they were fools. They even exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man, birds and animals and snakes. They distorted the image of their Creator and God gave them over to their sinful desires and the lust of their own hearts. Man will never fully understand his true identity until he comes to a saving knowledge of who Christ is and what He has done for him. Only then will his eyes be open and his new identity revealed.
Human Relationships Our human relationships with each other can be challenging because of sin and its tendencies to put strife between us. God intended for man and woman to be fruitful and multiply, to dwell in peace, love and unity. We are to love and forgive one another, and not stand in judgment against each other. Show kindness to our enemies even those who oppose God. For God is love. However, that changed after sin entered our world. Man began to do what was pleasing and right in his own eyes.
