Introduction
This worldview paper will show views on different aspects of worldviews. I will define a worldview? Articulate the biblical/Christian Worldview (what is believed). How might/should a biblical worldview influence the way you think, treat people on daily basis.

•    I.             Part One: What is a worldview? Define what the term “worldview” means.  Use descriptive phrases to support your definition. (25-50 words)

What is a Worldview?
A person’s worldview, whether it be Christian, humanist is a personal insight about meaning and reality. It is how a person interprets, through his or her own eyes, a personal belief about the world. SOURCE? A person’s worldview tries to give reasons for how the facts of reality relate and tie together. These facts provide the picture into which the daily events of a person’s life should fit. Reading the Bible is like brushing my hair daily. DOES NOT RELATE TO SUBJECT. 76      II.            Part Two: Articulate the biblical/Christian Worldview (what is believed) for each of the following 5 questions. Give 2 relevant scripture references (do not write out the verses) to support why it is believed. (300 words)

I. 1. The Question of Origin
How did life begin? How did mankind come into existence?
Exodus 20:11 New King James Version (NKJV) The Lord created all in six days, rested the seventh day this is believed to be the beginning of the world. To my knowledge the Lord made a day of rest to do nothing but pray and carry his word. REREAD THE PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE. THE DAY OF REST WAS GIVEN BEFORE THE BIBLE WAS WRITTEN. IT WAS FOR REST, BOTH MAN AND BEAST. Nehemiah 9:6 New King James Version (NKJV) States SPELLING that the Lord did all his work alone, he made heaven, the earth and all on earth, the seas and everything in them and we are to preserve them all. What the Lord did was to create a place to live a life with all the necessities to start a new world. The lord SPELLING created this place called heaven alone. UNLCEAR SENTENCE. II. 2. The Question of Identity

What does it mean to be a human? Are humans more important than animals? Who are we? Genesis 2:7 New King James Version (NKJV) says that God created man from dust and gave him breath from his own by breathing into his nostrils. This is how man was formed and became a living being. Genesis 1:27-28 New King James Version (NKJV) This passages states that man was created in God’s own image and then he blessed man and God said to them to go and be fruitful and multiply, so that there will be other men and women on earth, he meant to fill the earth and take control over fish, birds, and all living things that moved. God blessed them. MISSED THE QUESTIONS ON THIS ONE. THE QUESTIONS ABOVE WERE NOT ANSWERED

We are all Gods creations.

3. The Question of Meaning/Purpose
Why does mankind exist? Why do I exist? Why are we here?
1 Corinthians 10:31 New King James Version (NKJV) whatever we do in life that is good is for the glory of God. We are here because of the sins committed by Adam and Eve. I believe we are here to walk this earth in the form of God and to live the life that God wanted for us. UNCLEAR SENTENCE Whatever it is that we shall do, do it for the glory of God. Ephesians 2:10 New King James Version (NKJV) all people are the work of God, because he created us for his good works. We are here to spread the words of God and recruit to...
