What do the four parts of the Christian biblical narrative (i.e., creation, fall, redemption, and restoration) say about the nature of God

Creation: The Christian narrative of creation is essential to Christian theology. This biblical narrative is the foundation that states God is the creator of everything that exists (Grand Canyon University, 2018). God described his act of creation as good, which means that it was valuable and everything in its original state was the way it was supposed to be (Grand Canyon University, 2018). Men and women are created in the image of God and whether in health or sickness all humans have intrinsic value.

Fall: The fall and separation from God broke homeostasis of creation itself, bringing upon disease, sickness, suffering and death. These are all effects of the fall and not part of God’s original design (Grand Canyon University, 2018).

Redemption: The brokenness of the fall is being restored through redemption. The resurrection has several implications on disease, healing and death such as a motive for Christian ethics which is primarily love (Grand Canyon University, 2018).

Restoration: A renewed world is the goal of the biblical narrative. The biblical view of restoration informs the Christian health care provider that while medical science is good, it is limited and imperfect (Grand Canyon University, 2018). Healing from illness requires spiritual and communal restoration (Grand Canyon University, 2018).

One could find comfort and hope in the light of illness according to the four parts of the Christian biblical narrative. Christians need a firm foundation to guide and sustain them and through the biblical narrative provides a rich and deep perspective for the many ethical issues encountered in the world (Grand Canyon University 2018). These frameworks provide wisdom and guidance for complex dilemmas (Grand Canyon University 2018).
