It gives the society something to go by. It provides them with an idea of what to tolerate, what no to. How they should govern themselves and why it’s important that they succeed. The puritans wanted a society where everyone’s main goal was to worship and focus their lives on the word of god. They wanted to become the blessed one and be the role model for how to worship god the right way.
The Bible tells Christiansin the book of John 3: 16, to love one another just the same way God loves them and sent His only son to rescue them from sin. The Bible does not want Christians to go in to war with fellow Christians nor to seek revenge but to ask God for help. Christians are allowed to choose their leaders and ask God for guidance in order to choose the right leader (Dockery &Thornbury, 2002). Leadership also comes from God and whoever has been elected as the leader holds a divine position that should be respected by the followers. God expects leaders to be wise in their decisions and rule justly.
I love you and Jesus loves you. If you need a friend and someone to talk to I am here and Jesus will also listen to you. Jesus loves you and will help you in any situation. All you must do is repent of your sins and accept him into your life. No matter what you are going through, he will help you.
The pinnacle of Scheler’s development of a Christianity philosophy comes in his explanation in the origins and enactment of the philosophy of Christian love. Scheler describes this love as “a love which makes it seem frightful that only some should be ‘good’, while the others are ‘bad’ and reprobate”. By saying this, Scheler means that the love of a Christian not only values goodness and virtue within oneself, but that the love extends so far onto the other person that it desires that he or she be good and virtuous, also. Scheler describes this as a “sense of solidarity” with the other person, and says that “in this affection for the sinners I find no ressentiment”. This is a consequence of the new Christian philosophy that love transcends the material value of the person and instead treasures their inherent worth.
So the next time someone gives you constructive criticism, just say, “Thanks for caring enough to tell me what was on your heart.” —Jere Johnson
In relation, Jesus is now seen and is working through those He has redeemed in other words, the Church. Now, the Church expresses and shares the love of God boldly to bring those who are
God provided the Law of Moses to establish civil regulations and to lead people to the truth of justification by faith in Christ. He acknowledged that the moral law contained in both testaments shows a justified person how he is supposed to live in order to please God. He stated that the moral guidance of the law is helpful, but it is not of the essence of salvation or the gospel.

In juxtaposition to the sin and punishment centric ideology that permeated the teaching of the Church at that time, Julian of Norwich extended her understanding of God’s specifically maternal role to demonstrate God’s innate kindness. Indeed, “God is kind because it is his nature. Goodness-by-nature implies God.” (McGrath 183) To Julian, this very understanding of God being fundamentally kind, and being removed from the role of moral arbiter, is what will lead one away from sin, for the kindness of God inspires kindness within the soul of the individual and from God “to [Julian] was shown no harder hell than sin.
Introduction: As part of a prophetic community, we have come to realize that there is a clear distinction between someone who loves God and someone who lives like Jesus. A person who lives a holy lifestyle and seeks to do good to their neighbors, and loves God (of course), is a person that loves God. These kind of people are common, and really great to have around. By no means do I think they are bad people. Then there are the other set of people who are willing to live their lives sacrificially; their lives will actually mimic the life of Jesus.
Those we help is not a far-off issue. God sees our efforts for helping the poor as a means of sustaining our relationship with him. And for upholding a vision of morality, with special care to the poor and concern for the most vulnerable and needy. Nevertheless, we should not stop here, we ought to delve deep into Scripture for guidance and direction. The authority of Scripture helps measure our ethics and decision making.
Based on historical facts found in the bible, as well as physical landmarks that validate the scriptures, the Christian faith is sound. Christians find encouragement knowing the God they worship is relational and personal. Believing that the Word of God is truth, Christians trust that they will receive the gift of eternal life through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. However, there also are areas that cause many to question the Christian faith.
The consequences endured when making the Christian choice are still full of blessings and uphold the moral absolutes set by God. As a Christian, I cannot entertain the ideas of an Atheistic worldview, especially the philosophy of human life. I am confident in my beliefs and what God has done through Jesus Christ. If given the opportunity to parent a child with Down’s syndrome, I would face this challenge with my faith and support from the body of
He is calling us to be light to the world and follow Jesus. One of the easiest ways to follow Jesus in America is to love one another. This is one of the most important commandments God gives us. We are called to show love to those who don’t deserve it, and those who do not know the kind of love God offers. We need to see Jesus for the miracle worker, carpenter, and passionate human.
