Personality And The Bible
You must always keep in mind that this is "Christian" personality development course. Consequently, all discussions would be based upon a Christian World-view.
World-view has many definitions. One of them is: "world-view" is that angle or outlook from which a person evaluates everything in past, present, and future.
The angle or outlook from which we evaluate things is an important part of our life. It is like a "scale" used for measuring everything. If the scale is right, the results would be right; if not, the results would be wrong. If the scale is too small (in comparison to the real one), the results would be exaggerated. If the scale is too large (in comparison to the real one), the result would be disappointingly be small. On the other hand, if the scale varies from time to time, the results would be totally chaotic !!
A Christian world-view is developed by going to Bible, which is the only source for spiritual truths. Contrary to what many people believe, Bible is NOT a closed book. Nor is it a book made up only of do’s and don’ts Rather, Bible is a dynamic book meant to enlighten people about all aspects of life — including personality!
