When we repent of any sin, the blood of Jesus is able to purify us once again and make us pure in the eyes of the Lord. Repentance is not the permit to commit more sin, it is a way that brings us back to the righteousness of God. The reason sin attracts death is that sins chase away the light of God in our lives. When there is no light of God, there is death. The light of God brings blessings to those who abide in righteousness.
Sinful humankind is alienated from God. However, fellowship with God can now be realized through Jesus Christ (John 1:12) whereby God sent the spirit of His Son into the believers’ hearts, enabling them to call Him, Abba, Father (Galatians 4:6; Romans 8:5). New life in Christ. The salvation that comes from God is not simply patch-up work in human’s lives. Rather, believers in Jesus have their old self, the sin nature nailed to the Cross with Him (Romans 6:6).
He believed that a person’s conscience should not be subject to power and suppressed by the civil authorities. On the other hand, Michel de Montaigne also developed his ideas toward the religion wars. He expressed his opinions by stating that instead of leaning into cruelty and wealth, religion should destroy vices and lead toward goodness (Document 11). John Milton, who was an English poet that lived through the Puritan Revolution, had also revealed his beliefs toward the freedom of individuals. However, as the last sentence implied that people should rejoice at, instead of arguing and grieving.
The Church, however, did not agree with what he said, and they definitely didn 't appreciate his criticism. They tried to get Martin to recant on what he wrote, but Martin, who was seeking peace with God, would not recant. Martin believed that his message should be heard, and it was. The reason Martin Luther wrote the Ninety-fives Theses is because the Church was no longer doing everything through God 's word like selling indulgences. Luther thought indulgences had no real base in the bible.
Which makes sense because when you change from being atheists to Christianity, people would say you have had a change of heart, that results in a different end. The phrase “resulting in a different end” is also critically important to understand what is meant when Finney means “change of heart”. When someone swaps from one religion to another they start to praise the God they switched over to. In the example given above, if someone switches from atheism to Christianity, they would start to praise and glorify the Jesus Christ. This means this person that converted into Christianity gave up sinning of the flesh, and selfishness since he now looks up to the Lord, which can be proven when Finney added, “A change of heart, therefore, is to prefer a different end.
Anyone who does not understand sin and its poisonous fruits will indulge in it in ignorance, but those who know the power of righteousness will understand their inheritance in Christ. The message of salvation is the message of being saved by God from the destructive power of sin, and the release of the blessing of God upon those the Lord has saved. When we declared Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, we were saved from the life of sin into the holiness of God. It would be difficult for you to understand salvation without understanding what you have been saved from. The gospel of salvation is the gospel of the power of righteousness, it is not the gospel of sin.
To accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, simply ask him to come into your heart with a prayer of salvation: I acknowledge that Jesus Christ is God; that He came to earth as a man in order to live the sinless life that we cannot live; that He died in our place, so that we would not have to pay the penalty we deserve. I confess my past life of sin — living for myself and not obeying God. I admit I want to trust Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. I ask Jesus to come into my heart, take up residence there, and begin living through
Psalm 89:26 says, “He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation’” (NKJV). Many other religions acknowledge that Jesus was a good teacher, but they strip Him of His Deity. With the Word of God as our source, we can see that Jesus is just as much God as the Father and Spirit. In Phil. 2:5-11 Paul gives us a very clear picture of Jesus’ deity “Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage…” (NLT).
Neither does Christianity has the concept of hell, it does not believe in rebirth and “wheel of life”. Christian believe that trusting the God and complying the commandments will lead to the achievement of the religious goal, getting to know the god and be saved from their sins. “And this is eternal life, that they may know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom Thou hast sent. (John 17:13)” not only do Christians believe in the God, they will also spread and introduce the Gospel to others in a bid to save others from their sins, they believe through introducing them to Christianity, they may create a relation with Jesus Christ and therefore be saved as Jesus is here to save guilty human being though people cannot see
v20 Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires. v21 So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. Anger leads to destruction because anger doesn't produce righteousness. We cannot display love unto others with anger. There are times we need to be disciplined, but God should be in control of disciplining, He is our heavenly Father and we are His children.
