Christian Worldview

1. Judeo-Christian teaching insists upon God being the active creator of all things.
This theme is all through the Bible.
-Genesis 1:1 In the Beginning God created the heavens and the eart.
-Revelation 4:11 -Worthy are syou Lord our God to receive glory and honor
and power for you have created all things; because of your will they came to be and
were created.
2. Mankind is a special creation of God and we all came from one couple (Adam and
-Genesis 1:27 -God created man in His image, in the divine image He
created them, male and female He created them.
3. God immediately tested man by giving him the choice to depend on God to teach
them what good and evil were, or to depend on themselves.
-Genesis 2:15 -(In the Garden of Eden) where man was put to cultivate and
care for the garden. You are free to eat form any of the trees except for the tree of
the knowledge of good and evil: the moment you eat from it you are surely doomed
to die. (Dying, in the Bible, often means being cut off from God. It is a spiritual
death, not always a physical death).
4. Adam and Eve failed this test, resulting in our present fallen world. This is the
world in which we now live.
Genesis 3:17 -To the man God said, Cursed be the ground because of you, In
toil shall you eat its yield all the days of your life. Thorns and thistles shall it bring
forth to you. Until you return to the ground from which you were taken, for from
dust you came and to dust you shall return.
5. Jesus came to make atonement fro our sins and to open a path to our restoration
as children of God. This is a very extensive theme in the New Testament (and some
Old Testament predictions).
John 1:12 -But to those who did accept Him, He gave power to become
children of God, those who believe in His name. Who were born not by natural
generations nor by human choice nor by mans decision but of God.
6. God accepted Jesus sacrifice and restored eternal life to those who put their trust
in God. Again, a strong theme in the New Testament.
John 3:16 -For God so loved the world (people) that He gave is only son, that
everyone who believes in Him will not perish (die) but have eternal life.
Ephesians 1:13 -Having believed in Him you are sealed with the promised
Holy Spirit which is the first installment of our inheritance toward redemption as
Gods possession to the praise of His glory.
7. God is intimately aware of what goes on in the world. He works mostly in subtle
ways to shape what He wants for eternal life. We have a free will, yet Gods hand
and knowledge control things even now on earth.

Matthew 19:28 -Are not two sparrows sold for small coin? Yet, not one of
them falls to the ground without your Fathers knowledge. Even the hairs of your
head are counted.
Acts 17:28 -For in Him we live and move and have our being.
Hebrews 4:13 -No creature is concealed from Him but everything is naked
and exposed to the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
