Therefore, people that profess to be “good” also break God’s law and have hard and unrepentant hearts, we can see In book of Romans 2:1-5. Because of the way they are doing, they brought condemnation and judged to all men. So who can save them from condemnation and judgement? How can they have a salvation? Therefore, Paul told that the only way to save them from condemnation is to have faith in Jesus Christ, that’s reason why, he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it’s the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, Romans 1:16.
The existential question of suffering has plagued humankind for millennia. Numerous philosophies and theologies have attempted to explain the reality of suffering in the world. Answers range from there being no meaning to suffering to those who see suffering as having redemptive value.

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.
(1 Cor 2:10-11) In the Old Testament, God spoke through prophets and leaders of his people, but in the last days has revealed himself by his Son (2 Pt 2:20-21; Heb 1:1-2). The Spirit has the role of glorifying God and pointing to Jesus (Jn 16:14). It is always the Spirit’s role to stir our hearts that we will gaze more fully on Jesus and God the Father. He always makes little of himself but brings to our minds the words of Jesus. John puts it this way as he reports Jesus’ words: “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you“ (Jn 14:26 unless otherwise stated, all Scripture quotations are taken from the English Standard Version).
Calvinism vs Arminianism Calvinism and Arminianism is a topic that has been discussed in the church since the 1600 's when the Arminian Clergy published their "Great Remonstrance" that dealt with the 5 points of Arminianism. A popular theologian, John Calvin said “God preordained, for his own glory and the display of His attributes of mercy and justice, a part of the human race, without any merit of their own, to eternal salvation, and another part, in just punishment of their sin, to eternal damnation.” The thought by Calvin can be fully agreed upon, fully disagreed upon, or anywhere in between. Although it 's impossible to fully understand God and all that he is, the bible gives clear insight to who God 's people are. Unfortunately, the church has battled this belief for years and it has even split them up. This belief isn 't necessarily a deciding factor on whether or not someone is saved but it does give a different view of God.
The father asks Jesus if there is anything he can do to help. In response Jesus exclaims, “If I can! Everything is possible to one who has faith” (9:23). This quote nearly exemplifies Jesus’ message on the importance of having faith. The father and the many bystanders question the power of God when even the disciples cannot help the boy.
First, Calvin argues that man is doomed with total depravity because of the original sin committed by Adam and Eve. Second, he believes in unconditional election that determines who will be saved and who will be condemned. Third, he understands there to be limited atonement, meaning that Jesus did not die for everyone. Fourth, Calvin argues that irresistible grace is offered to God’s chosen elect. And last, he states that there is a perseverance of saints, therefore all who are saved are saved for eternity.
'who is of the truth') listens to Jesus (cf. 10:3, 16, 27). If Jesus' kingship is indistinguishable from his testimony to the truth, and if his followers are characterized by allegiance to his testimony rather than by violent upheaval, Pilate is forced to recognize that Jesus is the victim of a Sanhedrin plot. Moreover, there is an implicit invitation in Jesus' words. The man in the dock invites his judge to be his follower, to align himself with those who are 'of the truth'.
