Equally important, God crafted time, and time was from one point forever forward; He gave life too people for them to worship him. Worship to be given by not breaking his rules, rather by showing love to others, and asking for redemption for sin. Not whirs hoping him meant hell in death, and punishment throughout life. Than school can 't alone, which as Futrell points out, tries at making worldview neutral, but the schools cannot neutralize the child from freely discussing their beliefs. As students being taught to reason the first time, we would defensively discuss what we were taught.
One could think of hardship not only as a test, but as the idea that God cannot intervene when it comes to a person’s free will, no matter how horrific the situation might be. This is true, especially when it comes to Christian teaching. The Christian God cannot interfere with the freedom He has given His people. Those who are followers of Him can only worry about themselves and leave the judgement up to the Almighty. They are responsible for themselves and only themselves.
The book of Luke gives a clear explanation of Jesus’ misson by saying, “For the son of man came to seek and save the lost.” (Luke 19:9, ESV). This verse shows that Jesus came in order to save sinners; as a result of this, Jesus spent most of his time with those who had lost their way and needed to be brought back to the light. Accordingly, if Jesus were to come to earth today, he would not be visiting churches and people who are following his word, but he would be preaching to criminals and people who need him. The apostle Mark writes that, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick.
Basic Christianity is a crucial foundation that must be deeply entrenched within the hearts and minds of believers. The essential and basic principles aid every Christian by showing and teaching them how great God’s love is for us. In John Stott’s Book, “Basic Christianity,” he reveals insight on what it is to be a Christian. He also dispels many erroneous teachings that have been brought into the Christian community. Stott states in the beginning of his book that many have held the assumption that God sits on His throne, aloof, distant, and unconcerned for our needs and problems (Stott, pg. 17).
Proctor knew that by confessing, it would only make the court look better but by not confessing, the court would hang him. Proctor begs to Judge Danforth, “How may I live without my name? I have given you my soul; leave me my name!”(132). Proctor knows that if he signs the confession, there will be a paper about it in the church door. Proctor values his life but, he does not want to be remembered as a liar who is willing to do whatever it takes for his own life.
He illuminates how people should act and how they should not act. Individuals should segregate themselves from the unholy people to secure a firm relationship with god himself. God will help keep you on a straight and narrow path to redemption as long as you love and trust in god. Finding yourself is necessary to find god as many Christians learned. As he passed through Egypt and nearby towns and sent many people who could not find themselves and would not accept the lord to the everlasting fire.
God decided to have Jesus save the world because of all the sin happening. God sent an angel to tell the Virgin Mary she would have a son that would be God’s prophet and spread the Christian faith. In John 4:9 of The Holy Bible it quotes “God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.” This means that Jesus was sent in hopes that we would live by God’s rules. Jesus grew up but was unaware of his purpose so he needed to contact his father, God.
(Matthew 7:21-23). When people are concerned more with their families, friends, beauty, strength, and worldly possessions than with pleasing God He will declare depart from me (unto death?). With faith and believing in the words of the Bible man can be saved, and acquire a desire to complete good deeds. As Everyman is forsaken by his Kindred, Cousins, Goods, and Fellowship he begins to gain Knowledge and learns of Confession and this causes his Good Deeds to become stronger meaning he gains a desire to complete Good Deeds and please God. In the end one can only take good deeds with them when judged by God. Good deeds do not give Christians salvation.
The fallen have obviously destroyed their credibility with the maker, and apologies and excuses alone will not save them. Continuing with His speech, He explains to His listeners that He wants them to be saved, but by doing so Himself He is against risking the truth of their free will. Basically, God is not so subtly looking for a volunteer to “Die he or justice must, unless for him/ Some other able and as willing to pay/ The rigid satisfaction, death for death” (3.210-212). Acting as all fathers do, He implements the tough love and says that if they’re going to act like that, someone has to take responsibility. And, as God’s creations, the angels are unwilling to suffer for the sins of another.
Reverend Hudgins had a different interpretation of Christianity from both of these groups. Hudgins believed religion was about individual salvation and keeping your affairs
Christian Response: Salvation, according to the Bible, is due to God’s grace and love. He provided Jesus as the sacrifice for the sins of the world. It’s through faith in the crucified and risen Jesus that we may be saved. Works are excluded (John 1:12; 3:16; Rom. 10:9-13; Eph. 2:8-9).

The Bronze Bow is a well written historical fiction novel by Elizabeth George Speare and my choice for the best book of the semester. Set in the time of Jesus in Galilee, the story follows Daniel as he begins his transformation from a bitter, hard-hearted, vengeful young man into a man of compassion and understanding for others. This book demonstrates that change is a process achieved over time and through experience. For Daniel, many of these experiences challenge his long-held beliefs and cause him to rethink his preconceived perceptions. Readers who contemplate Daniel’s story will find themselves wondering about their own prejudices and perspectives.
