Emerson believes self is spiritual and that your identity is found in your soul. He does not highlight the physical aspects of self, he instead just focuses on what is on the inside. Emerson states, “the soul raised over passion beholds identity and eternal causation, perceives the self-existence of Truth and Right, and calms itself with knowing that all things go well” (Emerson 29). Emerson is illustrating that the soul contains your identity, and therefore, your sense of self. Emerson is also explaining that the soul sees the truth, which Emerson believes is the key to living true to yourself as everyone is better off if they follow their own truths.
Obedience is essential because, “all right knowledge of God is born of obedience” and obedience must be included in love. According to Calvin, piety is, “reverence joined with love of God which the knowledge of his benefits induces.” And, he goes on to say, pious men do not think up ideas about God and what he is or is not, they just listen to what God tells them. This is a kind of knowledge of God. From this, Calvin starts to get into his argument about the knowledge of God concerning the Seed of Religion.

Enlightenment itself is a concept that cultures around the world believe in and how people can master this concept. Enlightenment is an elevated understanding of life and learning how one may remove any negativity from their life. Societies view enlightenment as important because it helps people understand any and all forms of negativity never promote happiness and prosperity. One piece of literature that vividly shows this concept is Plato’s, “Allegory of the Cave.” Plato highlights how Socrates converses with Glaucon about how the man who reaches the light at the end of the cave would be free from negativity; the man discovers the truth which leads him to enlightenment.
By a ‘God’ he understands something like a ‘person without a body (i.e. a spirit) who is everlasting, free, able to do anything, understands everything, is perfectly good, is the proper object of human worship, the creator and sustainer of the universe’ (Swinburne, 1993). When God is presented as a character in a story, then obviously he will and must be depicted as a being, a divine self, practically equivalent to a human self. This implies that in the event that we take the Bible straight, in a manner of speaking, we will dependably consider God as an individual. All we then need to do is isolate God from exemplification and finitude, and eventually, we have Swinburne's omnipresent
Also, the Council affirms that consubstantial with us in our humanity does not exclude the fact that Christ was unlike us in regards to sin. St. Leo points out that, Christ 's sinlessness does not separate from his humanity, however, it perfects it. The doctrine of the Incarnation expressed in the Nicene Creed is affirmed and explained, as the Son is eternally begotten from the Father with regards to his divinity, but also born of the Virgin Mary with regards his humanity, because he is one and the same Christ, the Virgin deserves to be called "God-bearer" (Theotokos).
Introduction The Sovereignty of God is the biblical teaching that all things are under God 's rule and control and that nothing happens without His direction or permission. God works not just some things but all things according to the counsel of His own will (Eph. 1:11). His purposes are all-inclusive and never thwarted; nothing takes Him by surprise. This paper will prove that if the Bible clearly describes God as absolutely sovereign over all things and the Universe, that mankind has the free will to choose Him or reject Him and live a life of sin by their own choosing.
