Does God have a world view? If so what is it?
World-View: Origin, German, Weltanschauung,
a comprehensive conception or image of the universe and of humanity's relation to it.
This has come up in two threads recently I've read now. I realize the controversial and difficult nature of this topic. However, I think it is something that should be discussed in its own thread. Looking forward to a good discussion.
Please discuss the subject and not the person. Realize that it is possible to disagree with someone without insulting them. Also, realize that just because someone disagrees with you they are not attacking you as a person. Please respect each other in the love of God.
John 3:16 - For God so loved the "world" that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
It has always been God's plan from the beginning that man would live forever in a world where evil did not exist. But of course we all should know that Satan who rebelled against God was lifted up in pride wanted to set himself up as God. Satan entered into the garden lied to Eve and she believed his lies ate of the forbidden tree and Adam followed. From that time Satan has held man captive as man no longer was innocent in God's eyes. Sin entered into the world and physical death followed as a result. Every person that would ever be born would be born in sin and a captive prisoner of Satan. God's view of his created world was corrupted by sin and it has been from that time till now to purge out the evil in the world. As God will create a new heaven and a new earth where evil is abolished forever. Not only is the evil purged but all the suffering that man has had to endure because of sin will be taken away. No more death, sorrow, pain, crying as God himself will wipe our tears away never to come again because of evil.
It has been God's plan before the foundation of the world that all men would be saved. God sent his only begotten Son as the sacrifice as the body of Jesus and his shed blood on the cross was the way, the truth and the life. Jesus was the light of the world as the world was in darkness. It is not God's view for those he created to live in his world to perish but have everlasting life through faith by grace in Jesus Christ God's only Son. All of God's entire creations was put under a curse because sin entered into the world the woman, the man, the serpent and the earth. Since that time until now all of creation groaneth for the curse of sin to be taken away. God's view of his world is to be without the knowledge of evil and this earth as we know it now will be purged with fire and a new heaven and earth will be created. Imagine living in a new world were evil will never enter within it's gates. This is God's view for his creation it is his will and it will come to pass and it's biblical thus being the truth.
