Throughout this Song it seems as though they are reaching others not to only be saved but to join the union. In joining the union, God will work miracles. The song states “I love to see a God’s work go on”. This song can be perceived as propaganda for the union and also to push the significance of joining the union. Although Christ has brought them liberty by dying for their sins, he was not done and has a lot more in store for them.
The author of “Everyman” portrays death as a punishment to man for all the sin he has committed while on earth. In order to be saved by God one must believe and receive the Lord in their heart. The Christian religion believes faith along with good deeds will enable one to have eternal life with God. “Everyman” was written to encourage every human to live a holy life according to God. (Galens, Pg.
Benchmark Assignment: Gospel Essentials This paper will show how the Christian Worldview has been shaped by the sufferings of God, Jesus and man. Man was initially seen to be completely good and through their actions have created the downfall for all of man. This downfall has led to the suffering of all man, which led to the suffering and resurrection of Jesus to erase those sins and gain redemption for all mankind. God In the Bible, God is the ultimate power by which all things were created. He wanted to demonstrate his power to all by calling forth the light, the earth and all creates that dwell on it.
In part II of Lewis book he describes several different scenarios of Christians beliefs. He first talked about the difference between Christian Pantheism and the Christian idea of God. (pp.36). I myself as a Christian believe that God is beyond good and evil, that he is good and righteous, he loves love and hates hatred. Whereas, in Pantheism, one believes that God is part of the universe, without the universe God would not exist.
God will change our old characteristics of sin to a new creation. For the Bible declares, “Therefor if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Not to mention, the encounter that Jacob had with God at the Jabbok that night reminds us: though we may fight God and His will for us, in truth, God is good. As believers in
Because man desires "not only to live, but to have something to live for.” So by this he challenges Christ to show man what they can live for. Satan placed Christ upon a pinnacle in Jerusalem and told him to prove that he was who he claim he was by throwing himself off it. If Christ were really God’s son, the angels would bear him up and not allow him to die. He makes this claim because of Luke 4:10 states “For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee.”And yet Christ refused to throw himself down from the pinnacle of the temple in order to prove that he was the Son of God. Stating that he should not tempt God.
The Cross as a Victory There are several theories of atonement that come along with the idea of salvation. One of those theories is that Jesus ' death on the cross and resurrection is seen as victory over the devil and all the evil powers that held humanity captive. Before, we were in bondage from our sin and had no way to be liberated. After, Jesus ' death on the cross we are now set free from sin and the death that it will inevitably bring, which was conquered by Jesus. The main focus of this theory of atonement is Jesus ' death on the cross.
People want to be that believer that will be saved from Jesus Christ and be sent up to heaven to not have to bear with the years of destruction that many non-believers have to face. The Rapture returns all believers in Christ from the Earth which is described in the bible by 1Thessaloinians 4:13-18 and 1 Corinthians 15:50-54. The second coming is when Jesus returns to defeat the Antichrist and destroy Evil which is described in the bible in Revelation 19:11-16. Either way this sounds like a waiting game for many Christians and many non-believers because basically we could wake up tomorrow with friends and family who have disappeared and others are left on earth with the wonder and thought of what’s going to happen to them. I don’t judge those who are religious and I definitely don’t want to put anything on the back burner but personally I don’t know how I feel about the Rapture.
Presently, this sin nature prevents complete purity in love, beauty, and justice; however, God promises a new heaven and a new earth with a return to a sinless existence when ‘no longer will there be anything accursed” (Rev. 22:3 ESV). At the same time, true love, beauty, and justice can be partially realized as motives become more Christ-like through the transformational work of the Holy Spirit. Paul instructed believers, “Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things” (Phil 4:8
But, Jesus’ response to those who complained was, “For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10) Jesus did not shun sinners. Rather, He loved them and encouraged them to live purer lives. When Jesus left Jericho, He went to Jerusalem and was killed a short time later; therefore, that was Zacchaeus’ last opportunity to make matters right with the Lord and every opportunity you have could be your
