Everyone has a worldview. This may be something we do not think about on the regular, but we all have one. A worldview is our set of beliefs used to understand the world. It shapes our thoughts on how we interpret reality, and forms our moral opinions. Our regular worldview is formed by almost anything secular, jobs, money, family even education. Then there is a Christian’s Worldview which would be our sacred doings.
The Christian or Biblical worldview is based on the word of God. When the word of God is the foundation of your everyday life. Believing that Jesus is the Lord not only at our time of death but through every aspect of our lives. We believe that we are all created from God and follow the word and fellowship beside him. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them (Genesis 1:27). You base everything around what is right and wrong in Gods eyes.

There has even be a controversy over the virgin birth of Jesus, if Jesus was the Messiah, and was Jesus God, man or both. There was different beliefs about the government. Augustine, believed that the government was the result of sin. He believed that is was based around selfishness and corruption.
