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.
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. 62). The play uses allegory characters to act out morality amongst all humans including Christians (Jokinen, 2010).
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.

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.
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.
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 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. Doing a lot of research on the Rapture makes me feel like it could happen but at the same time I feel screwed because I don’t pray every day and I don’t go to Church everyday which has me wondering what’s going to happen to me and my family all because we chose a different route of faith.
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
“Anthropology has always called for a participatory experience, but in this ethnography, we are asked to become part of the action, sharing the risks as well as the rewards of success.” The novel, “The Uprising of Hope” written by Duncan Earle and Jeanne Simonelli, expresses the Zapatista journey to alternative development. Before we express the Zapatista journey to alternative development, we must know who and what the Zapatista’s stand for. First, all Zapatista’s have some sense of disjuncture from the past, a profound distrust of the government based on repeated betrayals, a hope and faith that life can change with sacrifice to the larger social cause, and a profound love of the campesino small holder lifestyle.
“The Shank Redemption” pertains to a successful banker (Andy, played by Tim Robbins) who is charged for murder, however, he did not commit this, and is given a life sentence. All throughout the film, Andy’s reserved and emotionless character ends up quite the opposite of a prison escapee. Andy was quite the unpredictable kind of guy, for example, he would do the prison guard’s tax returns just to get beer for the prisoners. Red (played by Morgan Freeman), the narrator and protagonist who is predictable contrary to Andy and is transformed on his views of hope. The film is narrated by Red, and would accurately display perceptions of Andy from himself and other incarcerated individuals.
