Introduction

Religion Essay The Worldview of Catholicism reflects upon the core beliefs of Christianity through various beliefs. Through the beliefs of; the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Nature of God and the Trinity, the Revelation and the Salvation, we gain an insight of how the Diocese of Broken Bay follows the Catholic worldview and its relation to Christianity. These beliefs are ones followed not only by Catholics, but also by many other Christian denominations. A key principle belief of Christianity is the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ. This has been explained through the Council of Nicea, where this issue was addressed. It was explained through the Holy Trinity; the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who in the catholic worldview love us and invite us to divine life for eternity. ...read more.

Christianity calls upon the belief and faith in the resurrection, in that after Jesus' physical death, Jesus is still present with us today and continues to preach to us the same message he did during his days on earth. The nature of God and the Trinity is an essential aspect of Christian beliefs. Through the Catholic worldview, it is described as a communion of Persons, known as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. ...read more.

Conclusion

Salvation is the belief that humans need deliverance by God from sin. Christians believe in life after death, that salvation is received through the grace of God. All humankind is born with original sin and that God's grace sent his son Jesus Christ to compensate for the sins of mankind through his crucifixion and resurrection. Forgiveness of sin is granted, on the condition that the individual puts their faith in Jesus Christ as the Lord and Saviour. "We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ." (Romans 5:1).

Although there are considerable differences; many of the original beliefs are still evident today. ...read more.
