“Islamic extremism is driven by a totalitarian interpretation of Islam that believes in a global Islamic state.”
“Islamic extremism is driven by an interpretation of Islam that believes that Islamic law, or sharia, is an all-encompassing religious-political system. Since it is believed to be proscribed by Allah (Arabic for “God”) sharia must be enforced in the public sphere by a global Islamic state. As such, Islamic extremists consider it to be the only truly legitimate form of governance and reject democracy and human rights values.” BY RYAN MAURO
“Shema: Hear! O, Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone. You should love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.” The ethical behavior laid out in the scriptures is for everyone in the world, not just Jews. The ethical goal of the faith is to imitate the behavior of God; forgiving, kind, benevolent, etc. The behaviors God exhibited each time the Hebrews sinned against Him and He forgave them and allowed them to renew the covenant.” By Stephanie Young
Christian worldview attempts to answer the three questions biblically: (1) God created humanity in His image so that we could have a meaningful relationship with Him and put us on the planet to rule over it (Genesis 1:27-29,2:15). (2) We sinned against God, subjecting ourselves and the world to the curse of evil, decay, and death (Genesis 3;Romans 8:22). (3) God became a human being and sacrificed Himself to pay the penalty for sin and to one day restore creation to a perfect state (John 3:16;2 Corinthians 5:21; Revelation 21–22). A Christian worldview should result in an adherence to moral absolutes and to belief in miracles, the value of human life, and the possibility of forgiveness/redemption.
A worldview is comprehensive in its impact. Our worldview affects everything we do, whether we recognize it or not. Our worldview affects how we spend money, how we treat our spouses and children, who we vote for, how we treat nature, what we choose to do with our time. A true and complete Christian worldview is not something that can exist only at church on Sundays. There is no separating a Christian worldview from everyday life. Jesus Himself is to be our worldview (John 14:6). Forming our worldview on His life and teachings is the only way to navigate through this world. That is what a Christian worldview is all about.
Even within all three worldviews I have quoted there are differences. All of us are different but unique. How each of us views our world is personal. Overriding our personal worldview is the ‘I AM THAT I AM’S worldview. This is the only correct and perfect worldview. It is the only one that truly matters. I have been shaped by the Christian worldview from the day I was born. As I study the other worldviews I continue to build my life on Jesus Christ, the Messiah. When I come to the end of my life, I will find out if I have been right or wrong. If my worldview has been right, I will be with the Lord. If not, I plead for mercy.
