So, he was very keen in keeping this theological idea in mind while preparing the sermon. The work of preaching is to proclaim the gospel in such a way that those chosen to salvation may hear it and make suitable through faith
A biblical worldview is the lens we use to trust the word of God and how we apply it to everyday life. Our worldview is something we deem true and valuable. Hence, by applying God 's all-knowing truth and wisdom, we allow it to be the groundwork of everything we think, say, and do.

Furthermore, God’s energies provide creative nourishment for all beings and extend the healing power of grace. According to Palmas, we as human beings are not required to actively seek out these energies.

Although, God loves them and the people should know that, they should also know the details. Paul provided a question for evangelist to ask instead, “Is the Holy Spirit so at work in your heart through the preaching of the gospel that a change has been wrought so that the sin you once loved you now hate and the sin you once desired to embrace?Do you want to go to heaven?” The idea to ask more direct questions rather than saying God loves you,say this prayer, now you will go to heaven is something that I can fully agree with. Paul put into perspective of how to talk to someone who is not a believer and provided
Although the Bible does not speak specifically on the issue of torture, followers of Jesus are called to love one another. In my opinion, Christian-principle based ethics is the route that should be taken. Instead of torture, people should take care of and love one another, as Christ loved
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.
