Psalm 89:26 says, “He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation’” (NKJV). Many other religions acknowledge that Jesus was a good teacher, but they strip Him of His Deity. With the Word of God as our source, we can see that Jesus is just as much God as the Father and Spirit. In Phil. 2:5-11 Paul gives us a very clear picture of Jesus’ deity “Make your own attitude that of Christ Jesus, who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God as something to be used for His own advantage…” (NLT).
However, St. Augustine altered Cicero’s view to fit his Christian beliefs. He believed that the source of internal virtue was given by God, while Cicero believed that the source of internal virtue was human reason. St. Augustine believed that justice is one of the four ways of loving God, and because of that he thought that justice is a social purpose that begins and ends with the devotion and love of God. His definition was influenced by that of Cicero, since he defined justice as a virtue concerned with the impartial treatment of individuals when following one’s social responsibilities. However, he added a whole new dimension to his concept of justice because of his Christianity and devotion of God.
John Calvin is considered one of the most important people in regards to the Protestant Reformation during the early-mid 1500’s. He was a pastor that took his job seriously and wanted to influence people to go beyond conformity and to try to grasp who God truly is, not just who others preached that He is. He encouraged thinking, not conformity. This new ideology, of course, brought about conflict between the widely prevalent Roman Catholicism of that day and Calvin’s personal conviction. The doctrinal differences mentioned in the prayers were part of that conflict.
As the gospel is revealed to us, we see the immeasurable love that God has for us as we revisit the cross and the sacrifice Jesus made for each of us. We see the depths of our sin and the need for a savior to rescue and redeem us. The love displayed for us deepens our love for Him as we realize the foundational truth that the fundamental problem we face is that of sin. Yes, we too are broken people living in a broken world. Biblical counseling provides both the counselor and the counselee the opportunity to experience the love and goodness of Jesus.
The sermon in itself is sort of a rulebook or a foundation for the puritans for which to build their society upon. In it he describes and tackles many of the social issues and argues how the puritan way is the right way. The path which god wants
However, after I started to recognize God as the Creator, and others and nature as the creatures of God - just like me, my world view is changed. Furthermore, I feel free to accept others who are different to me, and also started to care about the environment, which God gave us to take care in the mutual relationship. These idea about Creator God and Creatures has been built up strongly by understanding the triune God. Although I believed God as the triune God before, my word and my church were used to fail to balance the triune God. My culture I grew up was more focusing on Jesus Christ in sermon, bible study, prayer and so on.
By the end it is made prevalent that we as a human race need to accept out fate, but as well as put work towards it. The author discusses how a worldview of these religious connections makes being alive an instinctive feeling.

It provides solace and tranquility into the minds of the readers. It is a book promulgating humanity, with a fundamental approach of several religious dogmas. Mysticism of Christianity, Islam, and Quaker and so on share a common idea with the book. Doctrine of Christianity speaks about oneness of Man and God. It says that the fall of Man was the cause of separation of Man and God, that is, evil has distanced Man from divinity.
Christ died on the cross, so that we may have eternal life (exchange theory). Adoption into God’s family is immediate; however we still have to go through a process of re-socialization (sanctification), as we grow in our relationship with Him, so many of our old social constructions may still be with us after salvation (symbolic interactionism). The conflict theory describes the experience of evil and disruption, but assumes that people can save themselves and overlooks sin. In terms of a functionalist perspective, “our goal as Christians is to help make social structures more functional through redeeming the people within them. The groups in society are more likely to be functional in reaching God’s intended goals if they are populated by Christians who are actively seeking God’s will, both personally and in terms of the structures within which they work” (Radcliff
