To him, the inadequate treatment of the doctrine, especially on questions pertaining to God's interaction with the world, has detrimental consequences on the perception and understanding of God, creation–humans and non-humans, and what it means to exist in the world. 126.96.36.199 Overall Shape of Gunton's Doctrine of Creation In the context of these key influences, Gunton develops a doctrine of creation where he contends that God creates the world, and that his creation is an order of things which is intended to reach completion and perfection through the works of the Trinitarian God and human involvement for his own glory, in a projected time. In other words, Gunton's doctrine of creation is a project. The essential features
God had also rewarded David by making him king and giving him an everlasting kingdom. And finally in the New Covenant God had rewarded us with forgiveness, so that we as sinners can have a better chance at being with god forever.

Also, He is ‘’holy, righteous, and just while at the same time loving, forgiving, and merciful’’. God created the universe without help and He is beyond time, interested in each individual and do anything at all. • They have the same belief in the need for a messiah to rescue God’s people. They believe in the existence of heaven, the external dwelling place of righteous, and hell, the eternal dwelling place of the wicked • To Christians, the central tenet of their religion is the belief that Jesus is the Son of God, part of the trinity, the savior of souls who is the messiah.

For example, “The monster wrenched and wrestled with him but Beowulf was mindful of his mighty strength, the wondrous gifts God had showered on him: He relied for help on the Lord of All, on His care and favor.
Pelagius does twist the concepts to fit his idea of the relationship of humanity to God. The major point of difference between Pelagius and St. Augustine is the state of the souls. To Pelagius the soul is pure of sin when it is born; there is only “what God placed there”. To him saying babies were born with sin is monstrous. Men are born mortal and this is not the result of Adam’s sin.
Isaac was a promise of the covenant and the act of renaming Sarai to Sarah when announcing a birth of Isaac refers to a sign of God’s purpose embedded in her.

God creates the things we perceive as reality, but he isn 't constantly interfering. They believe that he pays it no mind, besides checking to make sure it is still running every once in a while.

One of the most obvious person is god. Morpheus is very much so the godly figure, guiding neo to the paths he should take and trusting he will make the right the decisions. Neo and morpheus are very much like god and adam in the beginning of the movie. God walked with adam, teaching him about the garden of eden showing him all the possibilities.

I believe too, the reason why salvation of God accured to people because of love, grace and because of the promise of God from the descendants of Adam, however, God also has planned salvation to His people in this world. But in this generation there are many people don’t believe that salvation comes from God instead salvation comes from the effort of man, and the good work of man, but the Bible itself does teach about that, its wrong, its not true at all.

5). Christianity also upholds the belief that God was in the beginning and he was the creator of all things. Christians also believe in messengers, or disciples, who were sent to spread the word of God and to “bear witness to the light” (Doc 6.).

The Agents of Good and Evil There is this belief that the Christian God is good and all-powerful. He has the power to create worlds and beings, yet there is still evil in the world.

They both believe the Manichean philosophy as a more rational thought process than the contemporaneous Christian view. This belief is that there is not one, but two gods in the world; a god of good and a god of evil.
