My "worldview" (𝘀𝘳π˜ͺ𝘯𝘨𝘦) in a handful of quotes:
"Everyone should eat and drink, and find enjoyment in all his toil, for these things are a gift from God." β€” Solomon, the wisest man ever
"There is no such thing on earth as an uninteresting subject; the only thing that can exist is an uninterested person." β€” G. K. Chesteron
"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance, the only thing it cannot be is moderately important." β€” C. S. Lewis
"This is your Father’s world. He has your back, He goes before you, He is the rock beneath you and your heavenly Father above. This is your Father’s world, and He has created this wide world is as a playground for His children. So: Go pray; and go play." β€” Peter Leithart
"Man’s glory is like making a big noise, like trying to show off himself greater than he is. God does not need to make any fuss about his glory: God is glorious. He simply needs to show Himself as He is…That is what He does in man…in whom He wants to be reflected." β€” Karl Barth
"There is nothing in the world, whether great or small, for which our knowing it or using it might not add a little to our perfection." β€” Richard Hooker

I wrote these 4 years ago, so cut me some slack, but they're still worth reposting.
Theologians answer: "Do you renounce the Devil and all his works?"
Athanasius: The Son of God became a Devil-renouncing man that I might renounce the Devil as a son of God.
Augustine: God grant me to renounce the Devil, but not yet.

Aquinas: I answer that I do indeed renounce the Devil and all of his works, just as Augustine says, β€œGod grant me to renounce the Devil.”

A thread: In John 6, Jesus says, "All the Father gives me will come to me; and him who comes to me I will not cast out," and "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him." These verses take high place in a common argument that the passage teaches most of TULIP.
No one can come unless the Father draws? Total depravity.
The Father gives people to the Son before they can even come to Him? Unconditional election.
All of these given people will come? Irresistible grace.
Jesus will never cast them out? Perseverance of the saints.

In one sense, this passage certainly does provide material from which these points of Calvinism might be legitimately inferred. However, we should note that the context in John and the overall passage indicates a different primary referent.
