  3. 3. What is a Worldview? A worldview (or vision of life) is a framework or set of fundamental beliefs through which we view the world and our calling and future in it. This vision need not be fully articulated….this vision is a channel for the ultimate beliefs which give direction and meaning to life. It is the integrative and interpretative framework by which order and disorder are judged; it is the standard by which reality is managed and pursued; it is the set of hinges on which all our everyday thinking and doing turns. As cited in Naugle, D. K. (2002). Worldview. Grand Rapids, Mich: W.B. Eerdmans Pub. Co.

  7. 7. . Genesis 1:26-31 (The Message)‏ 26 God spoke: “Let us make human beings in our image, make them reflecting our nature So they can be responsible for the fish in the sea, the birds in the air, the cattle, And, yes, Earth itself, and every animal that moves on the face of Earth.” 27 God created human beings; he created them godlike, Reflecting God’s nature. He created them male and female. 28 God blessed them: “Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth.” 29 Then God said, “I’ve given you every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth And every kind of fruit-bearing tree, given them to you for food. 30 To all animals and all birds, everything that moves and breathes, I give whatever grows out of the ground for food.” And there it was. 31 God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good! It was evening, it was morning— Day Six. Peterson, E. H. (2002). The Message : The Bible in contemporary language . Colorado Springs, Colo.: NavPress.
