Graham (2009), reiterates Popes requirements of knowledge of the bible and establishes a framework for a biblical worldview that should be built around the doctrines of creation, fall, and redemption. The doctrine of creation understands that God is the master creator of everything and is the ruler of his creations. God purposefully created man to live in this world and worship his glory. The fall is the belief that through an act of disobedience, humanity was forever tainted with sin. This forces us to continually seek him with our own accord to strengthen our relationship with God, because our purpose for creation is to worship him, and sin is a reminder for which Graham articulated, “that we cannot live without a god, even if it is a god of our own making” (Graham, 2009, 29).
The scripture texts mention Jesus as one who breaks all walls that divide humans under certain categories or label them with captions. In other words, if we are able to see God’s love manifest in the love of Christ, we would be able to understand the love of God too. On the other hand, Burton Z. Cooper states that “God has acted in Christ to redeem us.” This satisfies Jesus’ claim that our faith in Christ will help us be one in Christ as he is one in the Father, as mentioned in John 14:20.
Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.
It deals with a community marked by external persecution and by certain internal tensions which made its enlightenment necessary from the experience of Jesus: his death and resurrection. This, however, did not impede the missionary spirit of the community, committed to the evangelization of the pagans. This paper will reflect in short about the two main sections of the Gospel of Mark. Mark shows us Jesus acting in his ministry, words and actions, his passion and his death. From all these, we can deduce that Jesus appears before the people as the great prophet of the eschatological time, the messenger of the Kingdom, the one who is so close to the Father that he is able to call Him “Abba” (Mk 14: 36 NAB).
Jesus Christ is a man who has baffled and transformed the new age with his life and legacy. The question arose if He is just a man? Many speculated that He was just a prophet who was profoundly inspired with scriptural revelation. The truth is that He actually is the Son of God and everything he did reflected that of the Father, the
People ignore that and believe they can be their own gods. This is not right because Jesus says in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the father except through me.” Meaning that the only way to not end up in Hell is to except Jesus Christ into your heart. “It is to be ascribed to nothing else, that you did not go to
The Christian worldview believes in only one God, the creator of the universe. Making Him all powerful, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient and desiring to have a personal and intimate relationship with His creation. A relationship that must be nurture every day, by reading His word (The Bible), spend time on prayer thanking, worshiping and seeking His guidance. The essence of the Christian worldview is Jesus Christ. God loved his creation so much that he sent his only son Jesus Christ to die for our sins to give us eternal life.
Now Paul’s purpose is clear. He is not seeking to add a new god to the Athenian Pantheon; he is rather seeking the Athenians’ repentance. God will no longer “overlook” this ignorance (cf. 14:16; Romans 3:25); now is the time for repentance (17:30). Just as God had made all the nations to inhabit the whole earth from one man (17:26), so God will judge the world through the one man whom God appointed (cf. Romans 5). That this man is Jesus is confirmed when Paul says that God raised Him from the dead (17:31).
Why should Christ died for all when He foreknow and predestined that the atonement would only be effective for some people? God foreknown how we would respond and how we would use our free will and yet why does He still decided to atone those whose heart would not be budged toward Him later? I get the impression that God want to give all of us the same opportunity of salvation because all of us is the same according to God, all of us are His image and creation, and the fulfillment of the salvation will depend on our respond to His calling. So is it possible for the pronounced believers to be the unintended object of salvation plan all along? There is still some part that remain unsolved for me and I am still trying to seek for the
Father Boyle is my touchstone. I think of him when I think of God’s work. Father Boyle is living a life Jesus wants us to. He has put himself in danger to help the homies. He also has sacrificed the life he could have had to live with them.
They came from Ancient Greece. They are known as the Hallstatt tribe and the La Tene Tribe. The Hallstatt tribe focused on female emotion with the environment. This area was combined with practical labor in the La Tene Tribe. Shamanism is also practiced on both continents.
Male & Female Devine The Male and Female Devine’s myths are intriguing. The reader’s mental strength and capacity will be tested and compromised after researching the various beliefs from around the world. The reader is forced and driven to question their beliefs, cultural background, and ancestors. I’m a Christian and therefore, I believe the Female Devine, was introduced after the Male Devine
