The believer should mirror the exemplified behavior of those who went
John Winthrop uses Tenets of Calvinism in his writings by "and so teaches us to put a difference between Christians and others. ' Do good to all, especially those of the household of faith'. Winthrop shows total depravity in that he recognizes the difference between sinners and Christians using his beliefs that man was born sinful. He also uses limited atonement in that Christ died for his certain people but it is those certain people that are supposed to influence others to follow Christ. He also says that we are "to serve the lord and work out our own salvation under the power and purity of his holy ordinances."
In this religion, Christians believe that: no one can survive and be protected without the faith of believing in God, that the son of God is to be humble and unselfish, and that the life that one life and happiness was given to them by God. Beowulf a New Telling was originally written in Paganism, then converted to Christianity. Christianity and Paganism are very close religions. There are many discussions rather Beowulf has Element of Christianity or not.

Through God’s interactions with mankind, he uses certain individuals to perform tasks to reach specific outcomes and rewards them for their actions. But as conflicts arise throughout man's existence, challenges arise and people begin to question God. A challenge to God’s authority as portrayed by Abraham, Jacob, and Moses is justified by its prevalence to the underlying effects each challenge possesses on the future of mankind, in other words God accepts these challenges through the realization that each will consequently change the future and carry out his goals. Abram was one of the many prophets in which God quarrels with in response to questioning God's righteousness. God chooses Abraham, reckons him as righteous, and creates a covenant
Baptism, by washing the sin away with blessings and the Holy Spirit, and obeying God destroys original sin. Another thing Christians believe in is that Jesus rose again after his death. Christians see it as proof that there is life after death. Christians also believe that when a person dies, he or she either goes to Heaven or Hell.

(79) Throughout his ministry, he preached the good news, gave sight to the blind, healed leprosy, restored hearing to the deaf, and raised the dead to
The Law of Moses was given as a schoolmaster or tutor to bring Israel to Christ. The Law of Moses is understood through the “spirit of prophecy” or “a testimony of Jesus.” In summary, when you study the law of Moses you can expect to find a witness of Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice and gospel principles illustrated in the laws given. Many of the laws may no longer be required of the Saints, but the principles taught are eternal and will never be set aside. For example, the practice of blood sacrifice was fulfilled when Jesus came and the tokens of the sacrament were given in place of the old law. But the principle was as true when the tokens were animals offered on the altar as it is now when the tokens are bread and water
“legalism is “the act of putting law above gospel by establishing requirements for salvation beyond repentance and faith in Jesus Christ,” and it focuses on “narrow and rigid codes” and “obligates God to bless those who have proven themselves worthy.””(Yinger, 2008).
