Nietzsche thought that Christian morals guided European humanity for the last 1,500 years (Bishop, 2012). Europeans had to make a noteworthy choice regarding the last man and the superman, between a realistic society dedicated to complete contentment or a higher but sad culture with superhuman possibilities (Bishop, 2012). Christianity was the first against particle and theoretical nihilism. Christianity gave purpose to people’s lives by granting them an absolute value, Christianity was able to explain and justify the evil and suffering in the world (Moroney, 1987). As time went by the spirit of truthfulness sprang from Christianity and eventually gave way to the rise of nihilism as people began to question the notion of God and the whole Christian culture (Moroney, 1987).
Christianity explains salvation as redemption by God’s grace through faith from unrighteousness and sins to Cleanliness, also known as Salvation. The Bible explores salvation in different perspectives including reconciliation, redemption, ransom, forgiveness, and justification. Even though the Bible is a unitary book, the new and the old testaments present salvation in different aspects. However, the different aspects are complementary.

But because of the unconditional nature of this covenant, which the Apostle Paul paraphrased in this manner, “God’s gifts – which speaks of covenant promises and; His calling – which speaks of the national election of Israel - are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29). The Apostle Paul who was given to understand the mystery of Israel, revealed it
Introduction The first few books of the New Testament relate Jesus's ministry on earth. Jesus preforms many miracles and institutes excellent lessons for all mankind. One passage, in John 8, is an example of this. In it, Jesus wards off people who were going to stone an adulteress by saying, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” (John 8:7 NKJV). This very passage, overall, fortifies Jesus's sovereign ability to judge sinners and teaches people to give grace.
DAY 9 Saving Grace Read: First Samuel 15 Manifestation of the unmerited favor of God is amazing. Think about it. Throughout salvation history favor is shown guilty people. God is “merciful and gracious, longsuffering and abounding in goodness and truth” (Exodus 34:6) Where, oh where is this grace? It seems ridiculous in a world that seek punish upon punish.
