I feel led to pray so would you like to pray with me? Jesus is the way, the truth, and the light. Jesus has commanded me to love him with my whole heart and he has commanded me to love my neighbors as myself. Jesus also commanded me to go out into the world and win the people to come to Christ. Again, I love the Lord and I am willing to do his will no matter how hard it gets.
But Christ wants to speak truth into our lives, many times in the form of the Holy Spirit’s constructive criticism. Again, we have a choice to respond positively or make it personal. The Lord knows that this criticism is for our own good, and when we realize that, our relationship with Him will deep- en. We need to remember that most people who offer constructive criticism truly are trying to help us. Words of encouragement should prod us on to a greater life in Christ, not lead to the bitterness of spirit that brings glory to Satan and his troops.
Casy would try to be a positive influence on every situation. Casy wanted to live “in a way Jesus did” by preaching and teaching about Christianity (McCoppin par. 11). He often referred to the Bible throughout his time in the novel. Casy was a living portrayal of Jesus through his personality, leadership, and influence.
Beliefs: 6-10 most important beliefs about God and the Bible 1. God – I belief that God is Love and the one who spoke to create life and constantly shows his unconditional love to his creation. He is jealous for His creation and has proven His love through Jesus and the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 14:33; 1 John 4:7-9; 1 John 4:16; Ezekiel 36:6) 2. Jesus Christ – I believe that Jesus is God’s unconditional love in action and the only way to achieve a personal relationship with
The Bible tells Christiansin the book of John 3: 16, to love one another just the same way God loves them and sent His only son to rescue them from sin. The Bible does not want Christians to go in to war with fellow Christians nor to seek revenge but to ask God for help. Christians are allowed to choose their leaders and ask God for guidance in order to choose the right leader (Dockery &Thornbury, 2002). Leadership also comes from God and whoever has been elected as the leader holds a divine position that should be respected by the followers. God expects leaders to be wise in their decisions and rule justly.
This is a view that begins with a God who embraces those outside of himself, who planned a redemption that centered on sacrificing himself of behalf of the Christian people. A Christian worldview is also seen as when you believe the bible is entirely true in that you allow it to be the foundation of everything you say and do. Why is this view important to people? If you don’t believe in the truth of God and live by it, then all witness’s will be confused and mislead by the idea and teachings of the bible.

Mendez tells his followers that the greater the struggle the more glorious the triumph and Jesus, in the gospel of John, says to his disciples, “I have told you this so that through me you may have peace. In the world you'll have trouble, but be courageous—I've overcome the world!" (John 16:33). The connection with the ministry of Jesus to his disciples, Mendez to his followers, and youth ministry to the young church is a perfect straight line through each other. They all overlap each other because they all have the same three goals even though Mendez does it inadvertently, which are to empower (young) people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ in our world today, to draw (young) people to responsible participation in the life, mission, and work of the Catholic faith community, and to foster the total and spiritual growth of each (young)
The novel reveals many hellish situations. It was sinful to treat Tom Robinson like trash because of hatred towards his race. It was sinful to keep Boo Radley locked away from society because of the mistakes he made. These preventable situations are like killing a mockingbird; you shouldn’t do it but it is done anyway. Tom Robinson and Boo Radley were mockingbirds because they were not a threat to society, yet were punished for being human.
It is said that it is a “sin to kill a mockingbird”, so this situation shows that the killing of innocent Tom was a not right. II. Topic Sentence: Atticus Finch could be called the mockingbird of the book because he helps others, protects his loved ones, and is courageous. A. Claim: Atticus is a man who sees the good in people and instead of harming others, he wants to help them.
This representation is explained when Miss Maudie makes the statement, (Page 90) "Mockingbirds don't do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That is why it is a sin to kill a mockingbird." As seen in the novel, Tom Robinson is an innocent man whose life has been destroyed by evil, making him a mockingbird. Tom Robinson, in the public’s eye, is an evil rapist who deserves to go to prison. Inside the courtroom, Atticus uncovers the truth of the Tom Robinson case.
