Therefore, Paul told that the only way to save them from condemnation is to have faith in Jesus Christ, that’s reason why, he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it’s the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, Romans 1:16. Paul knew it was the only way of salvation, the one power of God that was effective in forgiving and chaing man and bring them at least to heaven.Now we can see here Paul wrote this letter, the main idea what He wrote was to show what salvation means in the book of Romans. It includes justification, peace with God a new Holy life and glorification. The only power to accomplish all this is the gospel of Christ. Salvation is offered through faith in Jesus, the Messiah, as we can see in the book of Romans 3:21-23; 10:9, through in Jesus we believe that He is the representative of the righteous by His faith, He brought internal life and He brought
Unfortunately, everyone continued to sin, but God forgave time and time again, and always created a new covenant with them. God wanted his people to be happy forever, he wanted to erase the sin of the first human beings and all who came after them. This is God’s plan of salvation, and the path he walks with us is called salvation history. Through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, God made a new and promising covenant with his people that from that moment on, it
Additional benefits received is the love and compassion of a father, from the heavenly Father as stated in 1 John 3:1, “Behold what manner of love the Father hat bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore, the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.” He provides everyday needs (Matthew 6:32) and bestows the privilege in heaven of being a part of His kingdom (Revelation 2:26-27. 3:21) (Grudem
Anselm argument is about God’s existence, comparing God’s, existence of a painting. Anselm argues a painting is a creation that was once an idea in a painter’s head, but that does not mean the idea of the painting was not always alive. In disagreement it is clear that Anselm is a new Christian, because this is what new Christian’s struggle with or complain how they cannot see God so why do they need to seek someone they cannot see with their whole heart. The strength of his argument is Anselm has a point that everybody comes across at one point in their lives that one cannot see God and it is up to this person to put their faith in God. God does want his creation that is us to have a choice in his own existence and he wants his creation to have faith in its own existence.
Obedience is essential because, “all right knowledge of God is born of obedience” and obedience must be included in love. According to Calvin, piety is, “reverence joined with love of God which the knowledge of his benefits induces.” And, he goes on to say, pious men do not think up ideas about God and what he is or is not, they just listen to what God tells them. This is a kind of knowledge of God. From this, Calvin starts to get into his argument about the knowledge of God concerning the Seed of Religion. “Men of sound judgment will always be sure that a sense of divinity which can never be effaced is engraved upon men 's minds.” In this as well is Calvin’s argument for humans having an innate sense of divinity which goes along with the seed of religion.
5] No matter whom you are or what other folks may think about you, the Lord loves you and is interested in you. Mistakes had been made by Zacchaeus. He had not lived completely acceptable to God; however, he righted the wrongs and was accepted by the Lord. The people of Jericho were shocked that Jesus would even associate with Zacchaeus and they called Him a friend of sinners. But, Jesus’ response to those who complained was, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10) Jesus did not shun sinners.
Explain Apostle Paul argument, what is the thesis of 3:21 in Romans. Moo, explains, “But now, justified by faith and how God revealed his righteousness through his Son and as apart from the Law of Moses, for instance, you can’t put old wine into new wine skin. Mark 2:22” ... Moo informs us,” the Old Mosaic covenant can’t contain the new wine of the gospel, the law and the prophet testifies to this new work of God in Christ, it has been God’s intention from the beginning to reveal the saving righteousness by sending his Son as a sacrifice for us.” Moo writes, “Paul build his case by explaining that the righteousness of God is only through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe” . Nevertheless, Moo writes, “Jesus Christ is the objective of the
In fact, Paul wants us to see ourselves as the Body of Christ as he emphatically wrote: “Ye are the body of Christ and members in particular.” (I Cor. 12: 27). In previous chapters, it is well demonstrated how the human body is built to reveal the plan of salvation of God for humanity. What the apostle had learned from the doctor fit so well with his vision and understanding of the things of God. Besides the plan of salvation, there is also a Body of Christ with its modus operandi (its way of operating).
It was written so that all might trust in Jesus Christ the Son of God who offers everlasting life. John’s gospel uses the word “Believe” ninety eight times and the word “Life” thirty-six times, in an effort to implant the significance that it is essential that one must believe in order to live eternally. John is not one of the three synoptic gospels, but in its place was written with a more scriptural material, yet correspondingly as enthused and important as the primary three gospels. Not everything Jesus did was recorded in the bible. “And there are many other things which Jesus did, which if they were written in detail, I suppose that even the world itself would not contain the books that would be written” (Bible, John
 To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,  and to bring to light for everyone what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things, Paul was chosen by God. His Job was to bring what God had shown him and make it known to everyone. I believe that Paul would reflect on his past and remember that he was only deserving of God’s wrath. He believes that he was not wordy to be a Child of God, and he was just grateful that he was save, but more grateful to be called and apostle. We are taught that Apostle speaks for God so when we read the book of Ephesians we are reading God’s words.
