The Systematic theology in this essay will explore God (theology proper), God’s attributes, the Trinity as followed by trinitarian christians, et cetera. The early church fathers were surrounded by cultured world and they made comprehensive use of reason and philosophy to defend Christianity. Justin Martyr stressed the ineffability, omnipotence and impassibility of God. Others like Athenagoras and Theophilus focused on God's simplicity, indivisibility and universal providence. Irenaeus emphasised on self-sufficiency and perfection of one God to counter Gnostics.
As Paul educated his devotees, God had assigned to each of His creature numerous favors and actions of reliance (Rom. 12:3-8;1 Cor. 12). Therefore, even if one remained devout to the Lord, there would be verdicts of divergent consequences in all ministries. The Discipleship of Apostle Paul was to establish the biblical doctrines that administered his ministry and pursued to spread over to the lives of ordinary humans with whatever favors and prayers God may had bestowed one.
Throughout the first three chapters, we see several instances where Jesus displays human emotion or undergoes human events. For instance, Mark says, “Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan” (Mk 1:9). Thus, Jesus is baptized, which is a distinctive human experience. We also observe Jesus showing his humanity in the cleansing of the leper scene. After the leper pleads for Jesus to heal him, Jesus is “moved with pity” (Mk 1:41).
The clans of the Igbo society worshipped their gods, which made of stones and woods, differently than other religions. They had a representative for each of their goddess such as the Oracle of the Hills. The main god that they worshipped was Chukwu, who was believed had created heaven and Earth. His hatred and the humiliation he gets from the Christian make him kill the messenger of District Commissioner. Okonkwo thinks that the Christians have ruined their clans because the clans found a new and accurate teaching, they began to doubt their own religion and the Igbo society was no longer acted like one.
The author, Arthur Miller, displays a theocracy to demonstrate a court's ignorance towards actual facts. A theocracy is a religion based government. Throughout the novel, The Crucible, the religion of the government corrupts decisions that are made in court. If someone was not a part of the church or did not attend every Sunday they were thought to be a witch, or at least dishonorable. Danforth, deputy governor, brought forth the main issue of the whole novel, "A person is either with this court or he must be counted against it, there be no road between" (Miller 94).
Veterans experience atrocities that causes them to question how God could allow such cruelty to exist. Krebs predicament with his religion is common among those exposed to life without a sense of safety and assurance. Seeing the carnage war produces can scramble a man’s sense of reality and illusion. Everyone comes out of war a different person. Philip K. Paulson, a veteran of the Vietnam War, went into Vietnam a Lutheran, and became an atheist after one month in Vietnam.
This shows how Okonkwo is embarrassed and ashamed to have Nwoye as a son. Not being able to handle that his son is converting himself and eventually converting his family to Christianity, Okonkwo urges the town of Mbanta to drive out the Christians with force and violence but instead of following that suggestion, the town decides to alienate them from the rest of the of the tribe, much to Okonkwo’s despair he is losing power within the
This is disbelieved due to those against Jesus mainly involving scribes and Pharisees, a quality that has been used to testify that the author of John is, in fact, Jewish (Guthrie). The Muratorian Canon suggests that John was written for the disciples in Ephesus, yet “there is no certainty is this” (Introduction to the Gospel of John). The Book of John could have likely been written for Samaritans because, during His time on earth, Jesus was not shown going to Samaria, but, as evident by topographic descriptions of the region, Christians likely ministered there after His resurrection
The bible reveals doctrines that are essential to Christian faith. Christian reflection doctrine and teaching of Jesus of Nazareth stemmed from his life and death in the 1st century AD. “By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world” (John4:2-3) I feel that the central teaching of Christianity steams from generation to generation since the beginning of time. Our parents instilled the Christians teaching that was instilled in them by their parents. The Christian basic teaching is there is a heaven and earth and that our sin is forgiven, and we must repent for the forgiveness of all your sins.
The Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. The essential foundation of the Christian faith, one of having approximately 2.2 billion followers. The very event was the change of several believers and showed who Jesus truly was. Many, athiest particularly, have tried to debunk this event in efforts to disprove the entire religion, to show that they are all mindless followers that believe in is a false God. However, those who do attempt to do so never find the results they expected, rather they receive the answer that changes their beliefs entirely, making them followers of the very faith that they were antithetical with.
