The Nicene Creed indicates that Jesus is begotten of God and that he was there before everything else was formed. Such perception is the position of my church since we believe that Christ is the son of God as he used to refer to himself in the scripture. My church’s adherence to Nicene orthodoxy has enhanced the message of salvation since it makes people to understand that Christ who is our savior understands our human weakness since he also bears the nature of man. Moreover, it draws people closer to Jesus and the salvation of God through the understanding that despite him being God, he took the incarnate form to save us. Such alignment makes it easy to understand the relationship between God and human beings as well as the love that God had for the world to an extent of giving His only begotten son to die for us.
Sin is a part of life throughout an average human and nobody 's perfect by any means, but God wants us to realize we can overcome these sins, actions, and bad behavior. The Bible itself has several subject topics and stories that relate to everyday life and temptations with his disciples, how they overcame these situations and still managed to live for God regardless of their past. Brueggemann believes that in order to understand and obtain information from the book of God you must have an open imagination. Having an open mind about christianity and reading the Bible will help obtain a clear visual and understanding what is expected of us as God’s people ensuring these signs, warnings, and blessings will happen if you believe in God’s word. Brueggemann encourages to have an imagination of our own to interpret our own understanding in ways we are comfortable.
Being made sin for us, he underwent the sentence sin had exposed us to. Carnal hearts see nothing in the Lord Jesus to desire an interest in him. Unfortunately, by how many is he still despised in his people, and rejected as to his doctrine and authority. We can see this in The Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke) share about the crucifixion and rejection of Jesus Christ, but Isaiah 53 and Psalms 22 describe in graphic detail what took place as well as the spiritually significant purpose for the death of our Savior. So let’s explore Isaiah 53 and see if we can discover its true meaning and therefore its accurate application to our lives today.
It is Jesus Christ alone who mediates the sacraments to allow grace to flow to mankind. The sacraments were instituted by Christ and were part of the Liturgical Tradition of the early Christian Church. The Church celebrates in her liturgy the Paschal mystery of Christ, his Sacrifice on the Cross, Death and Resurrection. Baptism: Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, as we are born of the water and the Spirit. Baptism is necessary for salvation (John 3:5), and conveys a permanent sign that the new Christian is a child of God.
In the following several centuries there were other controversies surround who Christ was such as Nestorianism, Apollinarianism, and Arianism. These controversies within Christianity were resolved through multiple ecumenical councils, which affirm Christs 100% deity and his 100% humanity. This short essay will provide evidence for the affirmation that Christ is the complete and total deity of God in human form using the Gospel of John, his epistles, and the general epistles. Jesus’ Deity In Hebrews The author of The Epistle to the Hebrews in the beginning of Hebrews starts with “After God spoke long ago in various portions and in various ways to our ancestors through the prophets, 2 in these last days he has spoken to us in a son, whom he
Christians ought to avoid escaping reality. Unlike Buddhism, Hinduism, and other worldviews, Christianity is not a religion of isolation but one in which the eternal Logos engages humans becoming one of us (John 1:1,14). We should do no less. Christians ought not to isolate from the world but neither accommodate evil.
Smith 19 Christianity is a religion based off of the belief in Jesus Christ and that He created the world and sent His son to die for us. He did many miracles and healed many people, HE died on the cross to forgive the sins of humans and give everyone the chance to go to heaven. Without Hum humans would spend the rest of eternity in hell. The Trinity is word that is used to describe God in three persons. The Trinity includes God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
It lifted all the fear, guilt, anxiety, misery and ignorance I had been carrying around all my life. The study of metaphysics and subsequently metaphysical interpretation of the Bible had my full attention. It was the first teaching
An Exegesis of 1 Cor. 11:17-34 Unity and love are inseparable terms, they are both important as each other, and one cannot exist without the other they are “married”. The Lord Treasures unity and love than any other thing, he hates the opposite of the two and would not tolerate such in the body of Christ. In the Epistle to the Corinthians (1Cor 11:17 - 34) the Apostle Paul brings out three exhortations for the church to follow. The entire body of Christ in worship (1Cor 11:17 - 22) In these entire six verses the Apostle Paul sharply address the issue of division in the Corinthian church.
Lewis states, “Theology means ‘the science of God’, and I think any man who wants to think about God at all would like to have the clearest and most accurate ideas about Him which are available.” (Lewis 80) Some people find it difficult to believe there could be any relevance to learning something that does not directly relate to them in this moment. It would not matter if all that learning and expanding a worldview amounted to be was knowledge that did not apply to life. Yet if worldviews are just compounded beliefs, and beliefs affect choices, and choices have consequences, then this useless knowledge changes the eternity of the holder. It is not logical for a Christian to reject
