Identify your personal thoughts on the seven questions that appear below. These questions address belief in God, human nature, metaphysical reality, knowledge, ethics, human purpose, and consistency in daily life. The questions below (from the textbook, pages 30-32) are designed to help you find how beliefs help form your worldview:[shortposting]
- Who is God and what are His characteristics?
- What is a human being and what happens when one dies?
- What is the nature of the universe?
- How do you know what you know? How do you know what is true?
- What is right and wrong or how can we know that there is a right and wrong?
- Is life pointless or is there a true purpose?
- What core commitments are consistent with my worldview and how do they make an impact on my life?
Using the “Detailed Worldview Outline” template, answer the questions in one or two complete sentences per question.
- Give a short summary of how you might personally deal with each question, depending on your preliminary thoughts.

Total word count for the document is 400 to 650 words, including the information already on the template.
