Brueggemann explains inherency as the way christianity has developed and the structure over time. Christians have an image whereas believing, trusting, and having faith in Him will lead living their life as God expects them to and blessings will overflow. God is the Holy Spirit, everlasting
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind” (Ecc. 12. 12-13). Remember this is the same King Solomon who had been talking about the benefits and downfalls of wisdom. Here Solomon says that wisdom is a benefit of life to gain understanding, but the sole purpose of our existence is to please God, so focus on that.
As stated, God has created all of nature and thus His truth should be able to be found through it. Because of this, Christians should also understand that knowledge gained from nature can be true even if it is not outlined in the Bible. As a sinful people discerning God’s truth from nature, it is necessary for there to be a lot of wisdom and self-reflection on the Christian’s part. In understanding psychology and theology, we as Christians must first understand intellectual humility. Entwistle said this about intellectual humility, “Humility as an intellectual virtue involves our recognition of our intellectual abilities and liabilities.
The Reflective Essay Our assignment this week is to consider the theological experiences during the course study and reflect on how our understanding. Who do we think God is, how has our understanding grown, what we have been able to practice and how will we pass this new experience to our circle of influence. I found the topics within Theology 104 inquisitive and challenging. Being taught the Bible was inerrant during my youth, provided me a solid base to develop my reasoning and understanding, not doubt. Because of this, I did not experience a change in theology during the course, but was encouraged to expand my evangelistic approach.
Another biblical scripture is found in 2 Thessalonians 1:3, “We ought always to give thanks to God for you, brethren, as is only fitting, because your faith is greatly enlarged, and the love of each one of you toward one another grows ever greater.” Reading and applying His word will allow for Christian to not only grow closer to God, but as His people the work is never done. This foundation is based on the principle of having a closer relationship with God. Letting His word be the bases on which life is measured. The four essentials to spiritual growth is the daily reading of the Bible, meeting with other believers regularly, having a ministry group and daily prayer. The daily reading of the word gives one peace of mind that whatever problem that they are facing it has already been faced before.
In contrast, I will also show that personal knowledge can also shape shared knowledge. The question will be discussed with reference to natural sciences and religious knowledge systems using language, reason, sense perception and faith to describe how knowledge is gained. This raises a knowledge question; to what extent is knowledge dependent on previous discoveries and inventions in natural sciences? While looking at natural sciences and religious knowledge systems, personal knowledge of individuals is more because of shared knowledge that has been shared using language and reason. Shared knowledge can shape personal knowledge because it uses reasoning.
Simply because a college mentor, years ago, talked so highly of the course and recommended that every Christian, that has the opportunity, should take this course. For further illustration, by the end of 2017 I was reading multiple books—Spiritual Warfare by Jerry Rankin,
2) Contemplative wisdom which specifies the human problems, existence through suffering, solution of life and death. Ecclesiastes and Job both fits in this. Wisdom books are different from poetry because of their concept. Fohrer quotes “The idea of “wisdom” here is how one can master things around the universe, experience it by solving the problems of life and master all situations in life.” Wisdom is concentrated in life alone and to reach the end, one will only experience cleverness. In Israel, wisdom fits generally into different areas of historical development and near east environment.
Therefore, many churches have lost their true understanding concerning to the two natures of Christ, because they interpret it according to their own understanding. Here we will learn some issues and polemics of this problem. Some emphasize the nature of Christ is only divine nature and reject His human nature because they believe that the matter
The Lord did not bless us with divine gifts for the purpose of boastful classification. I discovered that some spiritual gifts are exhibited by unbelievers as well. Thus, the role of spiritual gift is different from the role of spiritual lifestyle in Jesus. First Corinthians chapter 12 says: “…There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit… But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all: for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge… faith… gifts of healings… working of miracles… prophecy… discerning of spirits… different kinds of tongues… interpretation of tongues…” None of these nine gifts is superior because they are been controlled by the same Holy Spirit. Paul, who boast as the chief speaker of tongues confessed that without love the gift is useless.
