base our world view on Bible

This seems simple but it is a truth that somehow is lost in today’s Christianity.
But we need to base our world view on the Bible.

Here is the outlined Intertesmental Jewish World view:
Phase I: Creation – God spoke the world into being. They did not argue facts or methods, they had faith in God in doing this. They believed that God said it was “good.” Still today we look at this word “good” and study the implications.

Phase II: The Fall – Humans rebelling against God, a spiritual treason we call sin. Sin results in broken relationship with God, one that once was perfect. We are guilty and liable to God for punishment.

Phase III: Regeneration or Redemption – God has taken action to restore our relationship with Him. He wants to redeem us and reverse our present state. God is working his “redemptive history.” This has two parts: Part one: God or God’s agent will come into history and radically change how salvation works in order to redeem us. Part two: God will defeat Satan. This will directly and conclusively deal with the facts and consequences of sin.

Phase IV: Consummation/End of the World – fellowship and harmony restored between God and man. The Fall is reversed. Then there are several different eschatological theories.

How did so many Jews miss the fact that Jesus is the answer (in the past two thousand years!?!) Jesus is the one addition that is essential to my world view.

We believe that God exists (Heb. 11:6) and that He is the standard by which we measure everything else. God created everything that exists (Gen.1:1) and everything is held together by Him (Col. 1:17). We believe the Bible is God’s divinely inspired Word, revealed to mankind (2 Tim. 3:16). We believe that the fullness of God came to earth and lived in the human body of Jesus Christ of Nazareth 2,000 years ago (Col. 1:19). We believe that mankind chose to rebel against God in the Garden of Eden and because of that act of rebellion, sin and death entered the world (Rom. 5:12-14). We believe that believing in (John 3:15-19, 5:24), and obeying (Luke 8:21, John 3:20, John 14:21, 23-24), Jesus Christ is the only way to have eternal life or to be reunited with God (Acts 4:10-12).
