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 the Lord and I am willing to be obedient to the calling he has restored on my life. 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.
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.
Words of encouragement should prod us on to a greater life in Christ, not lead to the bitterness of spirit that brings glory to Satan and his troops. 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

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.

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. For a kind soul has no hell but sin" (Beer). In her understanding, the way to lead humanity away from sin is not through fear of
