Worldwide Research Paper
“It is defined as the fundamental cognitive orientation of individual or society or intellectual perspective about world. A person's view of world would reflect his fundamental assumptions and thoughts about the place where he lives”.
It is not necessary that everyone would have same perception about world rather it would differ depending upon one's experience (Fretheim,et,al,2005). Not each would pass through same situation so the way one lives will define his way of perceiving the world. If one would have good life, he would have cherishing worldview but if one would have stressful life, he would have despised perception about world.
Descriptive phrase: Worldly assumptions
What is the origin of the universe? How did humanity come into existence?
Origin of universe is a religious belief which asserts that the universe originated with life on it, with specific activities of divine creation. Universe was created by God in just six days, before fourteen billion years. In the Bible, it has been claimed that God did not create this universe in simple form so that it would get complex with time. Instead, God created universe in primary complex form as plants and animals which then continued producing. As the Bible says about origin of universe,
“I stretched out the heaven with my own hands.”- (Isaiah 45:12)
God has created many things while creating this universe but His most beloved creation was humankind that He made on His reflection. The first passage of Genesis says, “So God created man in His image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:27)
What does it mean to be human? Are humans more important than other living things?
Being human, means one has been blessed with sense of reasoning. God created human and commanded "Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky and all the animals that scurry along the ground" (Genesis 1:26-28)
Human is important than all other living things as God has created all the things for facilitating Adam and Eve (Fuller,et,al,2000). In the Bible, this thing has been mentioned that God has given superiority to human than all the other earthly creation. Moreover human was the last creation of God that He made on His Image that depicts human superiority over all the other creatures.
“Mankind was assigned the job of taking care of everything on earth, including animal." (Genesis 1:28-31)
What is humanity’s purpose?
The purpose of humanity is to be kind with all other humans and be fair with all the creation that has been created by God (Green,et,al,2008). Humanity has the purpose of treating all humans equally.
“Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king." (1 Peter 2:17)
What is meant by right and wrong? How is morality determined?
A man has been made on the image of God, but it has also been mentioned that man has the conscience that would instinctively recognize what is right and what is wrong. A man has been given a choice to choose between right and evil as man has been blessed with enlightenment and knowledge.
“He who justifies the wicked, and he who condemns the righteous, both of them alike are an abomination unto Jehovah” (Proverbs 17:15)
Morality needs a sense of recognition between right and wrong behavior. Account of the creation provides a clear indication that how human gets original knowledge about good and evil (O'Donnell,et,al,1976). Bible says about morality,
“Since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am Holy” (1 Peter 1:16)
What happens when a person dies?
When a person dies, his soul goes to heaven, as sins have been forgiven with the resurrection of Jesus and believers would be with Lord.
"Look on me and answer, LORD my God. Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death". (Psalm 13:3)
(I) How biblical teachings influence a person’s way of interaction with the environment and non-human creation?
When God created human, He commanded him to take care of all other things that have been created, such as earth, animals, soil, and all the other non-human creation.
“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." (Genesis 2:15)
(II) Decide on a future career (what you will choose and how you will carry it out)?
One can choose any career as God has created many things for giving human a wide range of options so that he could make choices as per his interest. But according to the Bible, honest hard work is the thing that God wants from all of us.
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” (Colossians 3:23)
