Worldview Final Paper

Worldview is how you view the world around you and your place in it. Obviously a worldview is shaped and expanded over the course of a lifetime by many different influences. It is important to really examine your worldview and support it using many viewpoints. This paper will be made up of three parts all incorporating my worldview. In the first part I will explain my worldview in detail. In the second part I will be comparing my worldview to another. Finally, in the third part I will use my worldview to support my stance on an ethical dilemma of abortion.
In this first part of this paper I will be explaining my worldview. There are three influences I will focus on to give an in depth look at how I came to my worldview. The three influences are religion, family, and my career choice. I think the biggest part of my worldview comes from my religion so I will start with that. I am a Christian and with that comes certain beliefs. Those beliefs lead my life daily and contribute to my worldview. One those beliefs is to spread his word. God’s word is such an important part to look at because it gives a framework to guide my life in every aspect. The Bible is filled with commandments, stories, and scripture that reference to how to look at life from a moral, social, and personal standpoint. We can actually begin to see the purpose for our through the word as well. Life’s purpose, according to the Bible, is for God’s glory. We are supposed to praise, worship, proclaim him, and follow his will. “Everyone who is called by my name, and whom I have created for my glory, whom I have formed, even whom I have made,” (Isaiah 43:7) I like this verse because I feel like it reminds me of what God has done for me. From that I know what I must do for him. I think that as a Christian we should see hope in the world. We should preach the good news to anyone that we can. Another part of my religion that affects my worldview is the fact we have forgiveness through God. He sent is one and only son to Earth to die in order to give us salvation through him. That gives me hope for our world, the fact that we have a choice to follow him and refrain from sin. Another belief from my religion that influences my worldview is that there is evil in the world. Especially in today’s times, it is easy to see how the world is becoming filled with more and more evil. I think God allows evil in the world to keep humanity in check to some point. In other words, God has the need to test his followers. Those tests most often come in the form of different evils. The tests are, in other words, a way to test our self- will. I think this is a huge part of Christianity and in turn my worldview. I feel like showing your self-will is a daily challenge and in it can be tested in many different ways or scenarios. I think that God is able to take evil away but somehow it is necessary to keep in the world. I honestly can’t think of a reason for keeping evil in the world but I...
