To expiate man of his sins, Christ sacrificed himself. According to the Christian faith, sacrifice has always been a part of God’s declaration. Forgiveness of sin required bloodshed. “And the LORD God made clothing from animal skins for Adam and his wife” (CBN Bible, Gen. 3.21). Even from the beginning of mankind, blood had to be shed in order to cover for the sins of man, in this case Adam and Eve’s loss of innocence.

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.

The text shows that John Calvin believed in predestination and election. According to John Calvin predestination is a decree from God that is unchangeable that he made before the creation of the world that he would save some people freely which he called the elect which gave to them eternal life, and the others which he called the reprobate would not be given access to salvation they would have eternal death. His reasoning behind predestination is best described by him in a few different ways. For the most part he said that there was no basis for election outside of God he said that God gave election ” in himself” in that he based his beliefs of predestination on “nothing outside of himself”. John Calvin also believe that the main purpose of predestination is that God would be glorified in praise of the elect for his grace and mercy and in wonderful judgment of the reprobates.

It assures that the readers will find “friends… / who will bring gifts and kindness” (28-29) if they follow Jesus’s teachings, because the Golden Rule in the Bible is to “do unto others as they would do unto you.” Therefore, by spreading kindness they will receive it in return. Compared to the Trebuchet, the Bible is more “useful to men” (30), because it spreads joy and love instead of war. It brings “blessings” (30) to society by helping people get along and have peace.

In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead” (1 Peter 1:3). Jesus rose from the dead; this is known as the resurrection. The resurrection is “the fulfillment of the promises both of the Old Testament and of Jesus himself during his earthly life” (CCC 652). If the resurrection did not occur, then Christianity is a “fake” or “false” religion. However, if it is true, then Christianity is absolutely real.
These two Gospels are similar in ways in which no other Gospels are except for Luke. These two books are part of the synoptic gospel because they are similar in many ways. The Gospels of Mark and Matthew share a lot of different miracles in the same way.

Daniel lives out the first of the five Sacred Heart Goals, “A Personal and Active Faith in God.” This goal has a strong focus on recognising the importance of showing love, faith and compassion for Jesus Christ and God through prayer and reflection.

Scripture tells us that God came to Abraham, telling him that if he truly was committed to God, he must sacrifice his only son. Abraham agreed, and took his son to a mountain top, prepared to prove his true loyalty to God.
