In this paper I will show how the belief in the resurrection of the body was present in the Early Church, and that the Church Fathers conceived of the resurrected body as being healed of all its disabilities yet bearing some continuity with the self. (In this paper I will show the Church Fathers, based upon their understanding of Greco-Roman culture and philosophy along with their reading of Scripture, understood the resurrection of the dead to involve the healing/cleansing of all bodily disability.) The Christian Creed finds its fulfillment in the proclamation of the resurrection of the dead to life everlasting. Just as Christ is risen from the dead, we believe that we too will be raised to new life in Christ by the work of the Most Holy Trinity. St. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15, asks, "What kind of body will [the faithful] come back [with]?"
The death of a person by another person can be forgiven if it involves love. This is how gracefulness works with forgiveness. All of these components about forgiveness makes it an aspect of love. It all makes a chain with the one you connect
For a believer, death is like sleep. Those who die in Christ Jesus will resurrect to eternal life. Those who did not believe in Jesus will resurrect to eternal damnation because they are already judged (2 Cor. 5:10). Death is salvation language used by Jesus pointing to apocalyptic life eternal for the saints (Rev.
One of the most important evidence for this is the transformation of the disciples. Before and after the crucifixion the disciples were timid and fearful, they were terrified of being killed but something changed and that was the appearance of Jesus bodily risen from the dead. The moment they saw Jesus again they were all transformed because they knew the truth. They finally understood that Jesus was God incarnate and that he saves people from sin. That is why all the disciples had a radical change and became bold witnesses to everything they had seen, even to the point of dying for their beliefs.
Afterlife is such a mysticism subject just like the belief in GOD. Nobody that is alive today has seen GOD but yet people believe GOD did exist and some people believe God spirit is still with us today. Myself being a Christians do believe in an afterlife. Afterlife means life after death. Some religious groups believe after death the soul enters into the next world.
Our choice of receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior or not while living on earth is believed to determine our eternal state in two literal places called Heaven and Hell. In contrast, the worldview of Secular Humanism believes death is final, and there is no life after death. Therefore to the Secular Humanist, only what mankind has done in his attempt to leave a positive legacy lives on (Weider and Gutierrez, 2011, pg. 63- 65). 127 words.
Knut M. Heim a professor of old testament at Denver seminary writes “ This psalm gives us hope for the here and now, hope for life before death, in whatever dark night of the soul or body we may experience (63)”. The message renews the fact that even when times may be bad and when we feel like God is not present he is always there. The path of life and death is a journey that we should take with the Lord forever because he is everything there is,was, and will be. A scripture that is very similar to Psalm 23 is John 10 27-
Is the Body of Christ healthy today? “There is one body and one Spirit”, wrote
Later on, God sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to model and lead humanity into an excellent kind of worship that is most pleasing and acceptable to God. The New Testament Gospels gave irrefutable evidence that Jesus indeed led a worshipful life until His death. He completely surrendered His life to God, and thus, lived in total dependence and unconditional obedience to the point of death. Jesus not only died on the cross to redeem mankind for God but since the beginning of His life, He already counted himself dead in the flesh for Him to be alive in the Spirit of God. Thus, Jesus is both a Savior and a worthy sacrifice to atone for the sins of the
