Existential Issues: William Craig mentioned that even Russel admitted that moral values can never be based on our personal taste and our decisions and he further said, "The point is that if there is no God, then objective right and wrong cannot exist" (Craig). I agree with him because God guides us to the path that leads to success and betterment of many people including ourselves. If we do not have faith in God then there's nothing that could go right since there would be no purpose and no fear of punishment or greed and passion for the reward that can make us follow what's right and wrong in life. “'If life ends at the grave, then we have no ultimate purpose for living'' (Craig). I'd say I agree with him to some extent because many of us
The first piece of art that I believe to be important is The Last Judgment, which I believe to be Weyden greatest piece of art. The piece is oil on an oak panel(Rogier Van Der Weyden). It is about the day that God will pass his final judgment over the all of souls humanity, and assigning them to either eternal excruciation or eternal bliss(Rogier Van Der Weyden). These picece of art goes with the Bible, in Matthew 13: 40-43, to all of evil-doers will be thrown "into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth," and the righteous ones "will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. " (Rogier Van Der Weyden).
Gilgamesh is given more than one chance to become immortal. Yet, despite his reputation for being victorious in all battles, he fails at both opportunities. One could argue that Gilgamesh was not actually so afraid of death but was, perhaps, afraid of living without his friend, Enkidu. Perhaps, he was simply having a hard time coping with Enkidu's shameful death. Perhaps the quest for eternal life was nothing more than a chance to prove that eternal life is unachievable.
He has always been and will always be. The descriptions of the nature of Ahura Mazda is essentially same as Yahweh (God in English). They also believe that one’s duty as creations of the one true God is to do good actions and deeds, without any second thought behind, other than joy. They believe Life is a struggle between good and evil, as well as that, there will be an end of time, Ahura Mazda will gather all the good who have ever lived to his side and destroy the wicked. While the Judaist believed that there was one
In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthian church he begins to debunk theories which were spreading regarding the afterlife. Apparently the Corinthian church had people teaching there was no resurrection of the dead, which means Jesus stayed dead. As Paul is working through the truth of the resurrection of the dead he declares something which resonates through the years to us today. He writes, “’Death has been swallowed up in victory.’ ‘Where, O death is your victory? Where, O death is your sting (The Holy Bible)?’” Paul declares death to be beaten, and hope is now reigning in its place.
The Judgment Day is the ultimate judgment by God of mankind. On that day, every deed of man would be brought into judgment and the appropriate reward or punishment would be given. It is therefore crucially important for mankind to attain salvation, live a righteous life, by following the exemplary life set by Jesus Christ so that, the individual will have his name written in the “Book of Life” to avoid being cast into the lake of fire which is Hell, as emphasized in the Book of Revelations, “anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire” (Revelations 20:15). God duly holds the authority to administer judgment on mankind because He had given mankind His word and in it contains every single detail; most especially, the messages of the Gospel to enable mankind attain eternal
Some religious groups believe after death the soul enters into the next world. There are many religions that teach at death the soul leaves the body and lives on for eternity. Afterlife is a mystery because there is no evidence or proof that this does happen but in spite of the lack of evidence many religion groups talk about the process of the afterlife and what happens after you die. Different religions have teachings on what happens to the body after death. Some religion does not believe in after life.
“I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book” (Revelation 22.18). As this verse clearly shows, God commands men not to change his word. Contrary to what God commanded, however, many people have tried to distort the Bible from what it truly states, to what they want it to say. For example, the works of a poet named Dante affected the ideas of many men from the time of the Renaissance. Because Dante’s poetry was full of Christian though and terminology, the people of the Renaissance deemed it as Christian theology.
Living and dying just to leave behind a home? These are but only simple life questions and I am just searching for some answers. What is resurrection? Believing that a living being will come back to life after death to face god and answer to his/her sins and good deeds. It is a vital part of almost every religion.
That’s because Islam teaches that apostates are to be killed” (Silas) Generally, believers wish to believe this is not the case, and will often respond to the original question with “Well, it depends”. This is because the believer is only answering the physical effect it will have on you. Spiritually, the consequence is definitive and without doubt. In the Deuteronomy, Chapter 13,
Islamic adherents are taught that this life is a preparation for the eternal life that is to come in the future, and it is up to them how they choose to live this life. Muslims believe that on a day decided by Allah, life on earth will come to an end and Allah will destroy everything (The Final Day). On this day all the people who have ever lived will be raised from the dead and will face judgement by Allah. The Qur’an also says that Allah will also judge Christians and Jews: ‘Those who believe, those who follow the Jewish scriptures, and the Christians – any who believe in Allah and the last day, and work righteousness – on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve’ (Surah 5:69). At the end of time, all people will be rewarded or punished according to how well they followed the instructions contained in God 's revelations to his
understanding and hope rests on the resurrection. Without the resurrection, sin and death are not defeated. Jesus is just another prophet, and not our Savior. His resurrection gives us the hope for the future, and his life is an example of the life we should try to emulate while on earth. Heaven is upon us here on earth, and the devil is using every bit of power he has left before being cast out for good, and Jesus returns to claim his new world.
After conquering the people, God warned the Israelites to be mindful in their well doing, that they dare turn to other gods, that would ignite His anger upon them (Deuteronomy 31;16-18). ‘Joshua is the book of Israel’s holy war. It describes how the Israelites took possession of Canaan as fulfillment of the promise that God had given centuries before to the patriarchs Abrahams, Isaac and Jacob. The name Joshua means “The Lord is Savior,” as he took hold of the leadership after Moses’s death. The book of Joshua is part of the primary history of the Hebrew Bible narrating the history of Israel from the creations of the world until the Babylonian exile.
Rather it be the Mythical god zues. The muslium god allah, or the Asian god buda. Every culture has a version of a god and uses that belif to hope there is something after death other then worms eating at your brain. That we can all ascend into some unknow place that no one has ever seen. We live but a moment in the time of eternity, and as a human or a person we need to believe that there is more.
Whatever it maybe, there’s sure going to be a consequence right along with it. Jonathan Edwards, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” combines the ideal beliefs that any Christian lives by and that’s the guilt of committing a sin. We live by the absolute horrifying penalty of going to hell, for the only god to judge us. In order to prevent this we have to obey his law and practice it. History has displayed countless amounts of times were the fear of hell has made us absolutely, earn a one way ticket there.
