How I balance theological wisdom, psychological guidelines, and my personal belief system is having the ability or aptitude to discern and to judge what is morally right. The information I gain from theological wisdom which entails "Christian theology wisdom" supports my own methodology and belief system. In regards to the psychological guidelines, I am compliant with the rules and regulations and ask the Holy Spirit for assistance if needed. Thus, this is how I find balance within theological wisdom, psychological guidelines, and my personal belief system. I learned that theological wisdom is gained from God, the Almighty and it is depicted as an aspect of God.
As stated, God has created all of nature and thus His truth should be able to be found through it. Because of this, Christians should also understand that knowledge gained from nature can be true even if it is not outlined in the Bible. As a sinful people discerning God’s truth from nature, it is necessary for there to be a lot of wisdom and self-reflection on the Christian’s part. In understanding psychology and theology, we as Christians must first understand intellectual humility. Entwistle said this about intellectual humility, “Humility as an intellectual virtue involves our recognition of our intellectual abilities and liabilities.
Question #1: What does biblical inspiration mean? Does God speak to us directly through the bible, or is the word of God always open to interpretation? How does one best defend his or her interpretation? Biblical Inspiration is that extraordinary or supernatural divine influence vouchsafed to those who wrote the Holy Scriptures, rendering their writings infallible. (Web Bible Encyclopedia) Likewise, biblical inspiration is the doctrine in Christian theology that credits the authors and editors of the Bible as ordained or influenced by God thus rendering their writings the word of God.
Sin is a part of life throughout an average human and nobody 's perfect by any means, but God wants us to realize we can overcome these sins, actions, and bad behavior. The Bible itself has several subject topics and stories that relate to everyday life and temptations with his disciples, how they overcame these situations and still managed to live for God regardless of their past. Brueggemann believes that in order to understand and obtain information from the book of God you must have an open imagination. Having an open mind about christianity and reading the Bible will help obtain a clear visual and understanding what is expected of us as God’s people ensuring these signs, warnings, and blessings will happen if you believe in God’s word. Brueggemann encourages to have an imagination of our own to interpret our own understanding in ways we are comfortable.

Introduction In human existence culture and spirituality and two separate subjects yet they overlap. Culture belongs to the human sphere while spirituality has its place in the divine. Culture has either good or bad features; and can only be measured by a standard objective. Spirituality has to do with a person’s position before God. The aim of this essay is to discuss the relationship a Christian is to have with his culture and the standard to judge culture.
Dr. King expresses how we are prone to let our lives be invaded with propaganda, legions of half truths, and how the press is pursuing an agenda that the viewers are fed half truths. From back then to present, while improving the system of public education in the United States is the critical building block to the economic prosperity of our nation and its citizens, providing every child with a quality education is far more important than that. Dr. King wants to show the key to whether society can achieve the principles, values, democracy, and humanity that we claim. Things that Martin Luther King Jr. wrote decades ago about the purpose of education still sound
I think that is something majorly important because we need the education that we have now and that is because of John Locke. All in all, John Locke's ideas have influenced the world. Without his ideas many of the things that are important, such as the government, would be way different and worse. He has gone down in history as being one of the most powerful people and as someone who made a big impact. He has influenced the wars and revolutions along with treaties and other political papers.
We will not be gullible by heresies around us because we have the true understanding about our faith. We will learn some of these misinterpretation and analyze it, on the next chapter we will learn Christology and what is the two natures of Christ to give us the very basic and fundamental understanding about our faith in Christ Jesus. Heresies and Polemics In this chapter we will look at the three major problem in fathoming the two natures of Christ Jesus; emphasize on Jesus’ humanity, emphasize on Jesus’ divinity, and confusing the two natures of Jesus Christ. Remember that what we are going to learn in this chapter are heresies. The Six Basic Heresies Regarding the person of Christ (Taken from: Introducing Christian Doctrine second edition by Milliard J. Erickson)
Such alignment makes it easy to understand the relationship between God and human beings as well as the love that God had for the world to an extent of giving His only begotten son to die for us. In this light, it is essential that the contemporary Christians align their thinking to Nicene Creed since it enhances the understanding of the deity of Christ and the love of God to
Throughout Book Two C.S. Lewis argues his belief in God. By relating his conceptual ideas to reality, evidenced by the existence of free will, he draws in the common folk to be educated in the teachings of God. He allows for the understanding of God’s existence and his influences on our civilization to be accessible to even the most stubborn of non-believers. Lewis eloquently explains his beliefs in a brief and enlightening manner, making Book Two informing and interesting to
Many times the role and services provided by a pastor are in fact the same as a clinical Christian psychologist can also have two meanings. One variation is a psychologist who takes their faith and makes it an integral part of their practice. The other is a new group of mental health professionals that belong to the Society of Christian Psychology or SCP. These members “ attempt to found their work on the ancient truths and wisdom embedded in and derived from the Bible, as well as other classic Christian texts, written throughout centuries” (McMinn et al., 2010 p. 393-4). It is important for clients to be aware of the methods used by their Christian therapist so they can decide if it is the
"Work is our design and our dignity; it is also a way to serve God through creativity, particularly in the creation of culture.” This quote from Timothy Kellers ' Every Good Endeavor speaks profoundly to me, it sets the stage for the Christian existence. I enjoy that the line speaks of our service to God through our creativity. It is also nice to see the common "ruling of the world” exemplified through our service. Our ruling the world should be through stewardship or trusteeship versus an authoritarian ship, which is how some Christians think we are to rule the world. As Christians we are called and simply live to work for the furthering of Gods kingdom.
A Christian university is a religion based education alternative to the secular or worldly education system. Christian universities may focus on key points such as morality, community service, and even finding oneself in a Christ -like community. However, like interpretations of the Bible, several universities translate these fundamental ideas in different ways. To further explain, a university that focuses on rigorous academics, such as Southern Methodist University, will lean towards academic excellence even if they are founded by a religious group while a liturgical university, such as the Southwestern Assemblies of God University, will focus on religious attributes, such as servitude. Overall, Christian universities may vary in interpretation,
