Therefore, Paul told that the only way to save them from condemnation is to have faith in Jesus Christ, that’s reason why, he wasn’t ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it’s the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, Romans 1:16. Paul knew it was the only way of salvation, the one power of God that was effective in forgiving and chaing man and bring them at least to heaven.Now we can see here Paul wrote this letter, the main idea what He wrote was to show what salvation means in the book of Romans. It includes justification, peace with God a new Holy life and glorification. The only power to accomplish all this is the gospel of Christ. Salvation is offered through faith in Jesus, the Messiah, as we can see in the book of Romans 3:21-23; 10:9, through in Jesus we believe that He is the representative of the righteous by His faith, He brought internal life and He brought
They are responsible for themselves and only themselves. The whole psychology of it, the strengthening of religion in hardship isn’t totally absurd. It would seem through all the loss involved in situations like the Holocaust or 9/11, that some aspects aren’t completely lost. Perhaps putting all one’s faith in a God could supply help to make it through extremely difficult times. It could help keep people alive as they wait for some sort of redemption or subtle sign that their God is there with them.
In the Christian faith salvation is gifted by God, and God does not grant salvation because of what one owns, how one looks, one’s strength, family, or friends. This play details such when the character Everyman pleads for such characters to accompany him on a journey to his grave. Jesus says in the Bible “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’” (Matthew 7:21-23). When people are concerned more with their families, friends, beauty, strength, and worldly possessions than with pleasing God He will declare depart from me (unto death?).
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.
And last, he states that there is a perseverance of saints, therefore all who are saved are saved for eternity. Calvin expressed these ideas in the Institutes of the Christian Religion. This work of his was received with both criticism and intrigue. Calvin’s ideas were very radical, but he sought to back each of them up with what he believed was the ultimate authority of the Scripture. Calvin combats the idea that the church gives Scripture its authority because he believes that the Bible offers “as clear evidence of its truth, as white and black things do of their color, or sweet and bitter things of their taste” (31).
This trend always accelerates in times when Faith is weakened and religion comes under attack. This allows the anti-Christian forces the opportunity to challenge church authority, ridicule their values and create open mistrust of the clergy. Rather than focus on unpopular decisions and the weakness of a few human representatives of the church, the faithful must always keep their eyes fixed on Christ himself. We should take comfort that when God offers such guiding principles; faith in him will provide the way. When people become poor in spirit and renounce or abandon their trust in their faith, they become subject to a loss of their own personal free will.
How do we return Christianity to a place of relevancy in our world? By doing all things with love (1 Corinthians 16:14). We Christians claim that our words and actions are always “out of love”, but given the state of the world today and Christianity’s place in it, that doesn’t seem to be the case. Christians have somehow come to the assumption that anytime we stand up for what we believe is right, regardless of how we stand up - be it using physical violence or hate speech, that as long as we have the right intention then people should just understand our motive. Even if we believe that our motive in condemning and attacking that transgender person in the bathroom is pure, we are being hypocritical Christians who are not abiding by Romans 12:21, ““Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” but rather perverting its
Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty,” (NLT). Essentially, nothing in this life except for God will truly give people joy. Oblivious to the fact that the human race has, in fact, been ordained to serve the Lord, most people’s “purpose” revolves around themselves and their
Unlike Christianity, believes Jesus Christ is Messiah and the God. • Jewish believe that they have selected to follow the commandments of One True God and God will look out for them in return. They trust God would send a powerful messenger, the Messiah, to come and bring in a new era of peace in one day, and even today, this is an event that has yet to happen. For Christians, that promised Messiah came in the form of Jesus Christ. • Christianity seeks salvation through faith, they agree that salvation is secured through a relationship with Jesus Christ and daily repentance of sins.
He backed up his research by using verses in the Bible and not by applying just his own thoughts. He also had to have knowledge of God and God’s creation to be able to get a better understanding of what the Holy Spirit is and why he is there. What value does the article have for Christian ministry, and life in general? Palmer explains that we should be thankful for the Spirit being a person as He saves us from our sin and He also leads us to God. If there were no Holy Spirit, no God, then we would never have seen His beautiful creation.
