Only those who remained blameless and free of sin would reach God’s presence. Salvation in the Old Testament is viewed primarily as a means of going to heaven, which calls for obedience of Gods commandments to be worth before Him. Although this is similar to the New Testament, the New Testament mainly emphasizes on deliverance from sin through Jesus Christ, the son of God, who died to redeem his people from sin and its consequences. Salvation in the Old Testament was mainly based on faith in God (Kärkkäinen 63). For instance, God considered Abraham, who was faithful to him, as a man through whom he would raise a great generation that would please and obey Him.
“Tattoos on the Heart” by Gregory Boyle, exemplified God’s work, compassion, and kinship. Father Boyle expressed God’s work when he created the Homeboy Industries while back to help turn Homeboys’ lives around. God’s work is in us all. “God can get tiny, if we’re not careful. I’m certain we all have an image of God that becomes the touchstone” (19).

A major similarity that I found in Genesis and Gilgamesh is who they picked to save from the Flood. In Genesis, God picked Noah because Noah worshiped God and stood beside him. It clearly states, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord” Noah saw the good in God and what he was doing. God trusted him and his well-being to build the ark and take control of it. God wanted Noah on the Earth because he saw no evil in him unlike the rest of mankind.
After the fall comes redemption, redemption is the doctrine that shows how merciful God is towards his sinful creations. God, through his mercy, provides his son Jesus Christ as the ultimate sacrifice to redeem and cleanse the sin of his worshipers. The crucifixion of Jesus Christ allows anyone that accepts Christ as the one true Lord and Savior may enter into the kingdom of God and live eternally without any pain or sorrow. Through these doctrines, Christian’s can stand firm in their beliefs and
Christianity is the teachings of jesus and he is from Nazareth, who later became the one and only jesus christ himself. Being a christian you have to live a very careful life. Such as Judaism and Islamic culture, Christianity is a monotheistic religion.” For God so Loved the world that gave his one and only son , that whoever believes in him shall not perish but shall have an eternal life.” This quote is a very important ascent to the Christianity religion because christians thinks that if u believe in jesus that u will have a great afterlife.
What it means to worship in the Christian faith and what it does to uplift them spiritually What is worship? Worship is giving worth to someone or something, genuine worship is a wholehearted expression of wonder, adoration, love, admiration, celebration, and fascination. It is a great feeling that occurs in your soul as you start to worship God for his love and appreciate him for all he has done. Most Christians today do not know the relevance of worship, true worship is more than singing, lifting hands, bowing heads, closing eyes, and smiling towards heaven.
Thirdly, Jesus is God’s son and the redeemer of the whole world (John 3:16). While other religions believe that Jesus was just a prophet, Christians believe that Jesus is God’s hope for the salvation of those who believe. The story of Jesus presented in the Gospel is foundational in a biblical worldview. The Gospel story can be simplified into three main limbs: Creation, Fall and Redemption. The fourth truth held in a biblical worldview is that the Bible is God’s holy Word (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21).
As stated in mormonbeliefs.org, Mormons believe that God had materials in order to create the uniform and organize the world out of chaos. John smith believes that the earth itself was not created out of nothing, but out of organized matter. They believe that we as human beings were created by God in order for his children to grow and eventually make their end goal to be more like him. This creation myth helps members to believe that if they follow the commands of the Lord, and they adhere to all of the things that Christ wants from them, they will see that the plan of salvation will work in their favor, and they will be rewarded for their good deeds here on earth.

The main purpose of religion is said to be to maintain and promote peace, compassion, and dignity among the interactions of the common people. However, that unfortunately has not been the situation, as the Sunni-Shia divide that has been present in the religion of Islam since the late 600’s has resulted in severe conflict. After the death of Muhammad, the final Prophet in Islam, Muslims began to develop differing views as to who should be the Prophet’s successor. The differing views in opinion resulted in the formation of two groups: the Sunnis and the Shiites. The Sunnis believed the successor should be a direct descendant of Muhammad, while the Shias favored the idea of the community choosing the best candidate for obtaining the leadership
