Biblical Worldview Essay
The book of Romans is the sixth book of the Holy Bible. It was written by Paul, “a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, set apart to the gospel of God” (Romans 1:1). Romans is a Pauline Epistle which means a letter from Paul. These letters were the first written information about Jesus; for these letters were written before God inspired the penning of the Gospel (Deffinbaugh, 2007). Paul started his ministry or preaching of the gospel message after his transformation in Jesus Christ; his conversion to Christianity on his way to Damascus (Acts 9:1-19). Paul’s focus throughout Romans is “the righteousness of God” (Romans 1:16-17). Focusing on ...view middle of the document...

Disobeying was “the fall” from the Garden of Eden that brought changes to the earth and to man. "The fall" was the beginning of unbelief and sin (Genesis 3:23) (Romans 1:23). Paul states, “For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, by the things that are made and by His eternal power “(Romans 1: 20). God created Ex Nihilo,”out of nothing” (Weider & Gutierrez, 2012). We can believe in what He made for it is visible, though it started in the beginning. We can also see His, the Creator’s, awesome power being displayed in the provision of sustainability (Psalm 145:13-14). The Lord God is the “Alpha and the Omega; the one who was, who is and who is to come” (Revelation 1:8). To make himself very clear, Paul stated that whoever “does not believe in the Creation was foolish” (Romans 1:22).
Human Identity
Paul elaborated on the Biblical Worldview of Human Identity which states that God is the Creator of man (Weider & Gutierrez, 2012); male and female were both “created in God’s image." They were both given the responsibility of ruling and caring for all the animals and creatures on earth (Genesis 2:15). Paul says that man is God’s special creation and scripture also states that man was created “a little lower than the angels” (Psalm 8:5). Paul relates man’s conscience as the law being written on his heart, this can only be from God because it reflects a knowing of right and wrong (Romans 2:14). We were such a joy to God, then “the fall," man chose to love sin, to worship false gods, to worship idols and this deserved death (Romans 1: 21-32). Paul explains that Israel is the Promised Land and the faith covenant with Abraham. God is the God of all people (Romans 4:16-17); man chose to turn against God, choice by free will, now man’s identity with God is soiled. Turning against Him now requires salvation for a relationship with God.
Human Relationships
Adam and Eve had the privilege of a face -to- face “walk” with God, until sin disrupted it. This mankind is decedents of Adam, his sin passes from generation to generation unto death (Romans 5:12). For this sinful nature, human relationships changed. "God gave humanity up to dishonorable passions such as, men and women exchanged their natural relations for those contrary to nature, debased minds, all manner of unrighteousness, covetousness, …………malice, slander, haughtiness, ………disobedience to parents, faithlessness, and haters of God” (Romans 1:26-31). As sinners all are in need of salvation through ways of redemption, regeneration, reconciliation, and justification for man’s grievous wrongdoing (Weider & Gutierrez, 2012) (Hindson & Towns, 2013). Jesus, the one and only Son of God, died on the cross for our transgressions. Jesus paid the price for our freedom, that is redemption (1 Corinthians 5:21). Regeneration is “to be born again” (Weider & Gutierrez, 2012) this cannot be attained by any works of man (Romans 4:5, 6) but must be in receiving grace and the gift...
