Understanding of the Christian worldview

In this assignment, you will assess your understanding of the Christian worldview, including the main topics you have covered up to this point. You will summarize and analyze the essential elements of the Christian worldview and reflect on implications for your own worldview.

Write a 1,250-1,500-word essay using at least two course resources (textbook, topic overviews, the Bible) and at least two other sources from the GCU Library to support your points. Remember, the Bible counts as one reference regardless of how many times you use it or how many verses you cite.

Begin your paper with an appropriate introduction, including a thesis statement to introduce the purpose of the paper.

Organize your paper with the following sections, using the seven underlined titles for subheadings.

Write at least one paragraph for each component using the underlined titles for a subheading.

  1. God: What is God like? What are God’s characteristics? What is his creation?
  2. Humanity: What is human nature? What is human purpose? What is the root cause of human problems?
  3. Jesus: What is Jesus’ true identity? What did Jesus do? Why is Jesus’ identity and work significant for the Christian worldview?
  4. Restoration: What is the solution to human problems according to the Christian worldview? What role do grace and faith play in Christian salvation? How do Christians think that the transformation of self and society happen?
  5. Analysis: Analyze the Christian worldview by addressing each of the following questions: What are the benefits or strengths of Christian belief? What is troublesome or confusing about Christianity? How does Christianity influence a person’s thinking and behavior?
  6. Reflection: Reflect on your worldview by answering one of the following questions: If you are not a Christian, what similarities and differences are there between your worldview and the Christian worldview?

Topic 5: Notes and Attachment Benchmark: Gospel Essentials

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This week you will be writing a “Gospel Essentials” assignment. The instructions are found on the assignment page. The assignment will be in GCU (mainly APA) format, meaning that it requires an introduction with a thesis statement, a body, a conclusion, and a References page.

I have attached a template that you may use for your assignment. You are not required to use this template, but it may be helpful.

The template is formatted in GCU (APA) format, and has headings for all the sections for the assignment. The introduction has a sample thesis statement that you have permission to use or modify in any way. I have included a References page with some resources that may be helpful. If you find any other resources that you use in your paper, you will want to include them on the References page. Whenever you use a source in a paper, either quoting or paraphrasing it, be sure to cite it using the (author-last-name, date-of-publication) formula for a citation. Any sources that I have included on the References page that you do not use, you can simply delete from the References page.
