Jeremiah is deeply connected to the people, despite his disconnect to them due to persecution and overall dislike. However, it is only with genuine care for the wellbeing of the people that Jeremiah is willing to voice warnings from God; after all, if he had not cared, it would not be rational to involve himself in their affairs. On the other hand, Zwingli's thoughts were heavily supported by the people but were directed towards the betterment of the Church. Zwingli's alienation is better described as a mental state that distance him away from the Catholic Church to allow him to criticize its practice. While Zwingli's motivations for his criticism is more multifaceted (e.g., inspiration from Luther, devotion to the Word of God), he echoes Jeremiah in launching an argument against something he cares immensely about: the Church.
He is favoring towards Christianity to believe in God than realizing that there are other outcomes in this world. In brief, Pascal 's wager fails to demonstrate that putting a bet on God could lead to infinite happiness, and the best outcome. He does address perfectly the criticism by endorsing a type of indirect voluntarism according to which, if we believe in God, we will eventually acquire this belief. His wager, has shown the importance of having faith in God for whatever reason and at whatever cost, he thinks, has flaws that just makes it fall apart. Believing
In my opinion James and Paul do not disagree in their teaching regarding salvation. They approached the same subject from different perspectives and delivered the emphasized on the fact that genuine faith in Christ produces good works.Paul was worried about the salvation of the people as well. In his writings he let know that receiving salvation is a gift of God and that no one can purchase salvation thru good works alone. Paul wrote to the Galatians out of a deep concern that they were forsaking the gospel, that he preached. He insisted that people were justified by faith in Christ rather than by keeping the requirements of the Torah (Boyce, 2016).
Dobson’s words can resonate with young and older Christians. The politically correct, liberals, or the Christian left may perceive his words to be ungracious and condemning; whereas, the word of God clearly dictates acts that are sinful and should not be tolerated (Galatians 5: 19-21). Dobson challenges Christians to stand up as Jesus did since truth by nature is intolerant of falsehood. If being intolerant means agreeing with condemning abhorrent behavior as God mandates in the scriptures (e.g., homosexuality, abortion, sexual perversion), then yes, it is okay to be intolerant. Tolerance is not encouraged in the Bible considering God is not tolerant; ergo, tolerance in itself is not loving, since tolerance denies justice (Kruger, 2013).
I think that sticking to what the Bible says and what I know to be truth is probably the best course of action. I would not trust Nestorianism for the same reasons that many other people have not trusted it; Jesus having two minds in one body is just too stretched, and strange, for me to follow or to understand. Although we are told to study and to try to understand the Bible, along with what it means, for ourselves, and to mold our own beliefs on our study, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, rather than to blindly believe everything we’re told, while trying to convince everyone else to believe as you do, without
The second Sola was: Sola Fide, meaning that we aren't saved by works or good deeds but by faith alone in Jesus Christ. Luther loved to emphasize this and teach that you can’t get to heaven through good works. The Third Sola, Sola Gratia meant: That we are only saved by God's grace not our deeds. Martin Luther couldn’t stress enough that we are loved by God and
One of the way of being kind is not swearing as those languages are vulgarized. God only create the kind of speech that are good, encouraging, and make the others’ hope arise, not turning down their positivity. In Romans 12, Paul says that “…bless and do not curse.” (Romans 12:14, the New International Version) When we pray God, we use words which give a sense of joyfulness, respectfulness, and hopefulness. Similarly, we need to use those words to address other people as that act will certainly make God pleased. In the same way, Jesus in Sermon on the Mount also teach people the serious consequences of swearing, that “…anyone who says, ‘you fool!’ will be in the danger of the fire of Hell.”(Matthew 5:23, the New International Version) As the Heaven is a good place with all good things, it is impenetrable to bad things coming from Earth and Hell.
During this time, the church was honestly separated from what the truths say in the Bible. Luther believed that forgiveness is an amazing gift from our Creator, but the church thought it could be bought. This is important for new and old believers to understand since everything today is bought with a price. The grace of God and Salvation is free! He sacrificed His son to give us eternal life, and this is what made Luther distressed.
Al Mohler on the other hand does believe in classical inerrancy. He believes it necessary to get information of biblical authority. He states that, “ God has given revelation to us verbally and directly, and He is consistent with His own character and perfection.” Overall, he believes Biblical inerrancy should be fully embraced. Peter Evans claims that biblical inerrancy is not a way to describe the overall context of faith. He read a bible before with very diverse groups of opinions, but; that did not conform well to the data of the Bible.
"Original sin is the idea that human beings cannot help but think, act, and speak in ways that violate God 's will--until, that is, God goes to work on them, changing them from inside out." As sinners we need God 's grace to overcome evil and sin. "Sin is certain, but the grace of God is more certain than our sin." But the good news is that God is working to bring us back into
