Pi and Jesus had many relations as well as the stories about both of them. These relations and Pi’s strong belief in christianity are a main reason he survived. Not only were there all the relations listed above, but there are even more facts to prove this. One is that Christians believe that if you are a follower of christ you will be lead to salvation just like jesus was after his suffering (Carnagie). Pi believed in Christ so he was promised salvation and he got that salvation.
How does one live a life as a Christian that honors and glorifies God? The answer is by reflecting Christ’s image by acting as He would in every situation. Because of what Jesus has done for sinners on the cross, they desire to live by His example in order to give Him glory. However, living a Christ-like life can only happen through the work of the Holy Spirit, who comes in to sinner’s hearts when they first put their trust in Jesus and the cross, growing them and making them more like Jesus. Many characters in books, stories, and movies have Christ-like qualities and characteristics, an example of this being Harper Lee’s masterpiece.
After Watergate, the only thing that mattered to Colson was having a right relationship with Christ and ministering the grace he had received to as many people as possible. Psalm 25:4-5 says, “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.” Matthew 5:6 says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be satisfied” both of these versus speaks into how Colson thought, felt, and acted. Charles Colson’s life is a powerful testimony to the transforming power of the Gospel. 1 Corinthians 15:47-49 perfectly describes Colson when it says, “One who bore the image of the man of dust became one who bore the image of the man of Heaven.” Colson wrote “The real story was that Christ had reached down to me, even in my disgrace and shame, and revealed Himself as the One who forgives and makes new.
Through King’s teaching we learn his belief that the view and trust you have of God influences human nature. King believed that in order to accomplish a greater good we must have faith in God. God will give them the strength they need once there is trust and faith with him. Martin Luther King Jr. Christian beliefs ultimately influenced his view on human nature. King believed that even though humans are wired to do evil and harm, God is trying to stop the evil from spreading.
This forces us to continually seek him with our own accord to strengthen our relationship with God, because our purpose for creation is to worship him, and sin is a reminder for which Graham articulated, “that we cannot live without a god, even if it is a god of our own making” (Graham, 2009, 29). 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
But God had mercy on the human race and decided to pay the price for everyone. Edwards pointed out that many people are coming to Christ and taking advantage of the opportunity that God gave them. He then ask the audience why they are not jumping at the opportunity and ask them if they want to be children of God or children with
1. Motivations for Jesus to do this could include it being his mission, he wanted to please his father, or he wanted to fulfill his father’s predictions. In Philippians 2:9-11 states that his name was given to him by God who also hath highly exalted him, and that in his name that every knee should bow of things in heaven. It also states that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is lord. Jesus knew that this was his purpose, furthermore if his father said then it must be done.
This triple division or classification was first suggested by Rudolf Bultmann, although he only recognized as authentic the third of the three categories. One thing that many theologians unfortunately overlook is the fact that in the great majority of the quotations in which Jesus uses the expression the Son of Man there is a marked emphasis on his authority in relation to something that identifies him as a supernatural character. For example, in Mark 2, chapter 5 Jesus says to a paralytic: "Son, your sins are forgiven" (Mk 2: 5). The scribes who were present accuse Jesus of blasphemy and say: "Who can forgive sins but God alone?" (2: 7).
Keeping the church as one body of christ means he is a follower of Jesus and will look after us. When he shows that the church is still holy it impacts my faith because it means I could impact the church and keep it holy and become closer to God because of keeping the church clean and holy just as Pope Francis did. Another reason why the Pope impacts my faith is that the Pope doesn’t only just stay in one place, he takes care of all the churches and visited many churches around the world to keep the churches united and together as one body of christ. The Pope helps me to understand that the meaning of helping others and doing something right isn’t for satisfactory it is for the good of others. He shows me this when he helps the people that are in need and need more help than us.
Nestorianism, named after Nestorius, was built on the denial that Jesus was fully God and fully human at the same time; his explanation was something like a split personality between the human and the divine nature. The two natures could cannot coexist at the same time, however, they can switch back and forth; although Jesus has both natures inside on him, they could not both at the same time. Eutychianism was named after Eutyches, a man who opposed Nestorianism, who believed that Jesus’ divinity and human nature combined to create a new, third thing. He taught, “Christ’s humanity was so united with his divinity that it was not the same as ours” (Quash and Ward, 41). If Jesus was not able to be both man and God at the same time, he would not have the ability to save us from our sins.
