Being raised in a family that believes in Christ, but were not active Christians has helped me learn more about God on my own. I feel that a person with good character will by default have a strong set of moral values and their morals will help that person to make ethical choices in their lives. Different sources influence this framework such as parenting, friendship, telecommunication or internet media, educational and religious sectors. The three main components that help to form my worldview are Ethics, Human Nature, and God, because they molded my thoughts, experiences, education and life decisions. My worldview has been shaped and expanded over the course of my lifetime by many different influences. A worldview is not something that comes over night; it is something that surrounds you for your whole life, outlining the way in which you live. I was given the opportunity to foster the beliefs of an open mind, a questioning nature and the ability to express myself without fear.
These days, most of the textbook only presents evolution theory as a fact to interpret the origin of life and the earth. The three components that make up my worldview are God, Ultimate Reality, and Human Nature, because they shaped my thoughts, experiences, education and life decisions. I have trusted myself to raise my children knowing who God is and teach them to worship and spread the word of God. Every person has a different way of perceiving and interpreting the world, the people that inhabit it and the events that transpire on it.
My moral values have been learned from many different influences throughout my lifetime. Many people choose to have part of their worldview mapped out for them through the guidelines of religion. Our first understanding of humanity is based within the framework of the worldview in which we were raised within. As a consequence of evolution theory’s monopoly in education, non-believers and Christians are unconsciously influenced by this secular worldview. I try to think of many different conclusions, and prepare for different scenarios, but things happen the way they do whether we prepare for them or not. In this essay I hope to explain my understanding of what a worldview is and how specific beliefs that I have, have been shaped in regards to my education and learning. It is hard to pinpoint exactly what influences have shaped my worldview, but the three that have had the most profound impact on my life are my family, my friends, and my personal experiences.
I strive to live ethically because I want to please God and lead others by my example. After reading the fourth chapter heading of Consider, the first definition of worldview that came to my mind was “view of the world” just from a literary perspective. I strongly believe that the majority of the views and beliefs that I have developed, to do with education and learning and even beyond that realm, currently and in the future, have been because of my family and the upbringing I received and will inturn assist me in my education and learning. Human nature is a factor that we often have to remind ourselves of throughout life.
My family has been the primary force in the development of my worldviews because of the massive influence that they have had in my life. Although sometimes transparent, your worldview allows you to make decisions based on how you see the world. Remembering that it is human nature to react certain ways in different situations is something we should keep in mind when making.
The way, in which we interpret everything around us with our worldviews is not often thought about and is as natural to us as breathing. Numerous influences in my life have been strong Christian examples that have given me a good foundation of Christ like values. Some of them had same belief with me, but some people had significantly different opinion with me.
I learned from experience that God would not trust us with more than we could handle. These loving examples have inspired me to live a life of compassion, service, and teaching. Humans have struggled throughout the centuries with the complexity and ambiguity of our humanity. More and more people get to reject creation unconsciously because they had no opportunity to compare and evaluate both worldview in same degree.
I interviewed my three close acquaintances and heard a various responses from many people including my interviewees. These interpretations and views can be constructed by a number of factors, primarily that of close family and parents as well as the culture that we live in. Others, like myself, base much of their worldview off of the experiences they gain while they are here.
