God decided to have Jesus save the world because of all the sin happening. God sent an angel to tell the Virgin Mary she would have a son that would be God’s prophet and spread the Christian faith. In John 4:9 of The Holy Bible it quotes “God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” This means that Jesus was sent in hopes that we would live by God’s rules. Jesus grew up but was unaware of his purpose so he needed to contact his father, God. In the article Faith in Jesus Christ Russel M. Nelson writes, “He went to Judean desert to meditate for 40 days and 40 night.” Once Jesus learned what God requested him to do, he returned to began spreading God’s word.
With these views, they go door to door preaching and trying to convert people to their religion. This could be annoying if you have strong belief in another religion. There are many laws if you are a Jehovah Witness such as you can’t belong to an organized club for the purpose of communicating with non believers, say the pledge of allegiance, vote, play bingo, or sing any holiday songs. Many of the activities believers of other religions do every day. Following all these rules gives you a better chance to be apart of the 144,000 to go to Heaven.
Seeing that part of Him was separated, He sent Jesus Christ to die for our sins to redeem the relationship that once was. 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
PRAYER OF SALVATION: “Lord forgive me for all my sins. I turn away from my old life and come to you now. I believe that Jesus died on the Cross for me and was resurrected on the third day to give me eternal life. Jesus, please come into my heart today and be my Lord and Saviour.” Finally, I would encourage you to find a Church where you will be taught to grow in God’s Word and where people will pray with you and encourage you in your new life. Build a net-work of friends who will sustain you with their prayers when you are going through hard times and, no matter how big your problems see, never NEVER give up.
107). Christians, however, believe that the world was in fact made by God and will end by God, and those individuals living on the last day will be sent to either heaven or hell (Many People Many Faiths; pg. 337). I also found it interesting that Hindu’s believe that an individual can live many lives, with their lives being good or bad is determined by karma (Many People Many Faiths, pg. 107).
Some Christians say the rapture that some believe in is not where Christ will take the church. They believe it is the death of those who are taken and the left behind are those who will enter into the Tribulation as the church. The important differences between the rapture and second coming are as follows: 1) At the rapture believers meet the Lord in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:17). At the second coming, believers return with the Lord to the earth (Revelation 19:14). 2) The second coming occurs after the great and terrible tribulation (Revelation chapters 6–19).
many years later in his second monthly known as the Millennial Harbinger. It was the idea of “Baptism by Emersion” Campbell claimed was essential to receive salvation. Through the Christian system and Christian Baptism (two books Alexander Campbell wrote over baptism) Alexander Campbell breaks down the creeds of Episcopalian, Methodist, Presbyterian, and Baptists showing that they all have the same common belief that sanctification comes through the cognitive decision by ones self to be baptized (fully immersed). Though he claims it is evident that all these denominations are too afraid to carry this belief out in their faith or in their practice (Christian system-remission of sins, Prop.XII) . This same belief in “Baptizo” (to submerge) drew Campbell to debate Maccalla in 1823(action of baptism, part2).
Stories like this one show why understanding the viewpoint is so finally important. This is because if the reader does not understand viewpoint of the story begin told, they will never truly understand the situation the character is in. A great biblical story to understand the importance of tone and narration is the story the last supper. The last supper tales of the last true miracle of Jesus Christ before he 's crucified. It also shows the way that believers of Christ are to operate in remembrance of his sacrifice each time they gather.
The bible doesn’t say anything about indulgences but the people will never know that, because they can’t read it. When he makes his new church he needs to print the bible in the vernacular so everyone can read it. If I were him I would get the king involved in the church also. There may be a few problems with building his own church. One of the problems is that there will
In the Christian faith salvation is gifted by God, and God does not grant salvation because of what one owns, how one looks, one’s strength, family, or friends. This play details such when the character Everyman pleads for such characters to accompany him on a journey to his grave. Jesus says in the Bible “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:21-23). When people are concerned more with their families, friends, beauty, strength, and worldly possessions than with pleasing God He will declare depart from me (unto death?).
