Understanding Biblical Worldview
God never changes. His truth is eternal, His promises and blessings are true. In this turbulent world, if we keep His commandments, in this there is safety, in this there is peace. Understanding God's truth gives us a foundation of faith upon which to build our biblical worldview.
Jesus said if we heed His teachings and live them, we can build on a solid foundation of faith, on rock.
Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not; for it was founded upon a rock.~ Matthew 7:24-25
Teaching Youth about the Creation, the Fall, and the Plan of Redemption
With Jesus Christ as the cornerstone, our foundation of faith is firm. The Plan of God answers Basic Questions of Life that youth will ask as they venture into adulthood.
1. Where do we come from?
By teaching youth about The Creation, they will come to understand that they are children of a loving Heavenly Father, as we all are. He created us in His image. We have a soul that will live forever, and our Father wants us to be happy and be able to live with Him in heaven. We are not just a lump of unwanted tissue that happened to evolve from a mutated particle of so-called primordial slime. On the contrary!
God’s truth is:
Neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~Romans 8:38-39
Come, then, unto your Heavenly Father, and be encircled about in the arms of His eternal Love!
2. Why are we here?
From the beginning, God gave us free will, because as much as He desires our happiness, He will not force us to do His will. After we were created, it was necessary for our Creator to be out of sight for awhile, so we could develop faith in Him. So He created this beautiful earth for us, so He could send us here to prove whether we would follow Him. But He would not force us to come here. So, it may surprise you, but The Fall was part of the plan of God. It was not an accident or a mistake. Our first parents could not be forced. It was a big decision, but when they partook of the fruit that plunged them into mortality, they knew they were advancing God’s plan for eternal families. Our purpose here? To show by our way of living where we choose to go next.
3. Where are we going?
Having been given freedom to choose, our Father in Heaven knew we would make mistakes. That’s why He made a Plan for our Redemption. He sent His perfect Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for our sins—to heal our souls, to overcome what we cannot fix. Will we follow the path back to God, or lose our way? The choice is up to us.
