What is a worldview? From what I have learned so far this semester, I have to come to conclude that one’s worldview is the way they perceive the world and is the basis for how that person chooses to live out their life. As our textbook puts it, it is “an understanding of the meaning of the world and our place in it.” One’s worldview affects every decision they make about life whether they realize it or not, but a person’s worldview cannot define what is true about life.

What is a Biblical worldview? I believe a Biblical worldview is a way of looking at the world using the Bible as your base for everything. In class, we have learned the main things Christians believe to be true about the world. First off, we believe that God IS, meaning He always has been and always will be. We believe as it says in Genesis that in the beginning He spoke and the world came into being. We believe sin entered the world through Adam and Eve’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden, and that this is what made us unable to be in the presence of our perfect God. We believe Jesus (God’s Son) came to be the ultimate sacrifice when He came as a baby, lived a perfect life, and took our place on the cross so that we do not have to experience separation from God (John 3:16). All we must do is admit we are a sinner and believe in what Jesus did on the cross. We must recognize it is nothing about we have done, but all about what He did. Lastly, we believe the Bible was divinely inspired by God. This means that everything in the Bible is true so we should try our best to live in according to Its teachings. Since I stated above that one’s worldview determines how he/she lives out their life, our lives should reflect Jesus’s love and ultimately bring glory to God. Romans 12:2 says. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by renewal of your mind…” We are supposed to be set apart. Our worldview should make us not want to any way be a part of the world.

...Toddrick Macon Bwvw assignment Section 26 9/25/13 The topic I chose was a substantial online movie review. I found a lot of reviews on a lot of good movies, but I ended up choosing the Insidious 2 out of all of them. This is a hour and forty-five minute horror/suspense film that came out September 13, 2013. As I read over the review I noticed the author disliked the movie. He describes the movie, as being two thirds of a great movie. The suspense qualities that should be displayed in any horror movie were overshadowed by the frightening pop out scenes. He also describes how the segments of movie are lengthy. The author definitely accomplished his goal of explaining why he didn’t agree with the movie. How he explained could’ve been a little bit better by giving a couple more examples, but the examples he did use were explained well. The author’s delivery was good; he never left me wondering why something in the movie was incorrect. He presented himself in a very respectful way; his work came of as very professional when I was reading it. He used his words the right way. I didn’t see any grammar errors, or misspelling of a word. All together the movie review of Insidious two was good. A couple more points, or examples on why he didn’t like the movie would’ve been better. If I were grading this review I would give this author somewhere between a ninety and one...

Worldview Writing Assignment Part 1

...BWVW 101-001 Teacher: Dr. N. Troy Matthews 01-22-2015 Worldview Writing Assignment Part 1 A worldview can be simply be defined as the way we see the world around us. A worldview is acquired through our experiences and the environment we are a part of. A worldview is like a filter that makes us see the world around us in a specific and distinct light. Whether we are aware of it or not, we all have our own way of thinking and evaluate things; and that’s what a worldview is about. (94 words ) I don’t really know if I have a specific worldview. But if I had to pick a worldview, from my childhood and the environment I grew up in, I would say my worldview is pretty “Christian” oriented. I think I have a Christian worldview because the majority of values that I hold close to my heart are Christian ones. As a result, my comportment reflects my worldview because of the way I perceive the world in my own lenses. I think it would be safe for me to say that most of the time, my internal beliefs or worldview materialized itself by my actions in everyday life. Therefore, my Christian oriented worldview serves as a filter that dictates how I approach different events in my life. (126 words ) Understanding a worldview is important because it enable us to evaluate ourselves to make sure that our beliefs or worldview is consistent with our actions. Life is full of trials so having a good worldview is a good tool to help us strive and remain constant to stay strong in......

...Andrew Walker Dr. Weider BWVW 102-084 9 February 2014 Source: Name of Source: Abortion Law Around the World: Progress and Pushback. Date published: April 1, 2013 1) This article gives a good background on how we first started abortion and what is happening today with abortion. A number of 68 countries world wide only allow abortion if a women is about to die. Most of the other countries in the world will decide whether the women should be allowed to have an abortion or not. Since, the Roe Vs Wade case abortion has not become a matter of what the woman wants it has become more of a liberal. Due to this liberalization countries do not allow an abortion unless under dire circumstances. This leads women to get an abortion done illegally and in unsafe environments that could put their lives at risks. Lots of countries have been noticing this over the years and have started to take off abortion laws and allow abortion. They may allow abortion, but they make you go through a 24 hour waiting period after they tell you that abortion has a chance to give you breast cancer and can affect chances of having a child. While in other countries they make you go through a counseling period to talk over why you want to have an abortion and until they feel satisfied. When going through the......

...Sam King BWVW 102-001 March 1, 2015 Worldview Application Assignment Abortion Abortion has been a very controversial topic in American history ever since the court ruling in the case Roe vs. Wade. The court ruled that abortion is okay when the heath of the mother is at risk. Another case that increased the number of abortions was Doe v Bolton. The courts expanded the definition of health for the mother to include familial, financial, psychological, and well-being as determined by her physician. The contemporary issue that surrounds abortion is when does life begin because that questions decides whether you are killing a human or not. Many Christians that hold a biblical worldview will say it begins when the egg meets the sperm. A non-Christian would say it begins at a certain trimester and or when the baby is born. These two views can be worded as pro-choice and pro-life. The biggest issue that separates the two is whether it is morally right or wrong to kill a baby in the womb which then raises the question of when life beings. Abortion will continue to be a very controversial topic all throughout the world and the Untied States, but can be stopped with people that care about life and what it means to be human. A question that needs to be answered when talking about life and death is what is the meaning to life. The bible makes it very clear as to what the meaning of life is. Man is to seek after God always and keep his commandments as it says in 2 Timothy 4:1-5 ...

...Marquis Gilchrist BWVW 102-005 February 27, 2015 Worldview Application Assignment Abortion Abortion, a medical procedure, is the termination of a human pregnancy, before the baby is born. Abortion is not right nor it is wrong, the biblical worldview of abortion is not to get an abortion. However, some people will disagree with the logic because of how the pregnancy came to be. Sometimes the pregnancy can be by accident, may be voluntary, or it could have been rape. Usually once a woman gets pregnant at a young age, she may start to ponder about abortion, because she wonders how will she be able to take care of the baby or how will she be able to finish school. Others may tell her to keep the baby because it is the good thing to do or others may convince her that abortion is the right thing to do. At the end of the day it is still the young lady’s choice because she is the one that is baring the child, no one else. Sometimes it is a hard choice whether to keep the baby or not, because the females is of young age and may not know any better, but this is a situation that should not be taken lightly because it could be a life or death situation, for the baby. I do not support abortion nor am I for it, because it all depends on how the pregnancy took place. If the two young people were having unprotected sex and the female becomes pregnant, then that should not end in abortion. If they two young people thought they was old enough to have sex, then they should be accountable...

Biblical Worldview Overview

...Taylor Riggs BWVW 101-001 10/2/15 Worldview Writing Assignment Part 2 What is a worldview? A worldview is the framework through which a person sees and understands the world around himself. It is based upon a set of “presuppositions” about the life and the world. A presupposition is a belief that one may hold before gaining knowledge or beginning to form opinions. A worldview is not simply your opinion, but instead is the foundation on which you base all of your decisions and opinions. One of the easiest ways to uncover a person’s worldview is to ask the five key questions that all worldviews must answer: the questions of origin, identity, meaning, morality and destiny. What is a biblical worldview? A biblical worldview uses the Holy Bible as the foundation on which the answers to the five key questions are answered, presuppositions are laid out, and opinions on all matters are formed. The basis of the biblical worldview can be summarized in a few statements. First, the God of the Bible exists Second, we know that He exists because He reveals himself to us through creation, humankind (moral conscience), and His Word. Third, the Bible is the Word of God, therefore it is authoritative in its declaration of presuppositions by which all humans should live. And finally, Jesus Christ came as the Redeemer to save each person from their own sinful nature and restore an eternal relationship with God. Through these truths, as well as those found in the Bible, biblical......
