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
Edwards and Henry two very different men in history remembered for different things offer different approaches to reasoning. Edwards’ appeal to reason is fear he uses fear to convert and encourage the people at his church to appease god and follow his teaching devoutly. Yet Henry’s appeal to reason is logic, freedom from oppression and fulfilling a religious duty to god. Henry’s approach considerably more civil and reasonable compared to Edward direct approach of instilling fear to keep people from sin. Henry’s approach is constructive in bringing people together to fight for a cause.
It helps us to understand the position of both Jesus and his parents. In modern society, if we were in Mary and Joseph’s position we would be extremely concerned for the safety of our child. But as Jesus, and children, we have the amazing ability to adapt to situations with ‘not a care in the world’ because we are intrigued by the new experiences but we also feel warmth, especially within the church, as if everyone belongs and is loved in God’s eyes. However, if we were to not take the passage literally but metaphorically, or on a deeper level, we can understand that, without faith and trust we are lost. We need to learn to embrace challenge and adversity, and accept a fact that may or may not be what we currently perceive as ‘truth’.
Faith does not reduce the autonomy of reason, but reminds people who is at work, causing the events that we attempt to break down with reason: God of Israel. He then goes on to explain how Jesus’ death on the cross holds so much weight in the teachings of philosophers and how it stumps many who ponder its details. “Man cannot grasp how death could be the source of life and love; yet to reveal the mystery of his saving plan God has chosen precisely that which reason considers "foolishness" and a "scandal" (John Paul pg. 21). The main justification that Paul provides is the truth about the deeper meaning of the Cross of Christ.
Although she was raised Catholic, I am not sure how much of her life Pauline gave to God. He expects us to pray to Him to give us strength and courage, so we can use it to glorify Him and spread his word. We need to ask him for courage, not just rely on our own strength. If we rely on ourselves to be courageous, we are not only bound for failure, but also are drifting from Jesus- the only one who can save us. So the lesson here is to rely on Jesus to give us courage and bravery to do His will.
In our daily lives, we also need to pray and fast to open the portal for the spiritual growth and to be blessed with God’s grace. God requires our obedience Esther’s obedience toward God saved the Jewish people from genocide. Although she was afraid of the consequence of persuading the king to stop Haman’s plan of killing the Jewish people, she still approached the king and by acting in the obedience, she was able to save her nation and her people. Likewise, Christians must obey to God because our obedience brings us the most suitable result for us. God uses everything and everyone to accomplish his divine
Though I no longer accept their doctrine, I have a deep respect for many aspects of the Catholic Church and all religions that bring acceptance and goodwill to the world. Today, I like to say that my religion is kindness. In my experience on this earth, I’ve found that the only thing that really matters is how we treat others today, and not so much where we’ll be when we die. I try not to think that far ahead. Instead, I focus on how I can make the world a little better now.
God is concerned about the well-being and interest of the peoples. So we are doing as Christ did. Reflecting on my life allows me to see there is no difference in my value and another because God created us all. The seven spheres in my opinion the first steps in a process for me to share a love and serve all people on the earth. As a disciple of God and a follower, I am called to love all nations, in spite of their gender orientation, faith, or their way of life.
I also feel that being a Christian allows me to be a better friend to others, a better sister, and daughter. This relates to the Bhagavad Gita by I, myself, being afraid of letting others down in certain situations, just like Arjuna is afraid of letting entering the war against his parents. Some people generally do things just to help others, where others do it to gain trust. Tay I believe that my life does derive meaning from its place in the grand scheme of things. I understand my relationship to the greater purpose behind things by giving God my time.
How do we return Christianity to a place of relevancy in our world? By doing all things with love (1 Corinthians 16:14). We Christians claim that our words and actions are always “out of love”, but given the state of the world today and Christianity’s place in it, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Christians have somehow come to the assumption that anytime we stand up for what we believe is right, regardless of how we stand up - be it using physical violence or hate speech, that as long as we have the right intention then people should just understand our motive. Even if we believe that our motive in condemning and attacking that transgender person in the bathroom is pure, we are being hypocritical Christians who are not abiding by Romans 12:21, ““Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” but rather perverting its
