This verse alone shows the power of God. Genesis 1:1-31 teaches that God created all things differently, by simply speaking them into existence. He spoke them into being. These verses show the order and distinction of creation. Genesis 1:26, shows the conversation between God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
In his text Predestination: Institutes of the Christian Religion, Calvin holds that predestination is "One's salvation had already been determined by God, and those elect who had been "chosen" gave evidence of their calling by living exemplary lives" (18). This idea of predestination is one of the key teachings of the Calvinists. They believe that from the beginning, God "predestines" some of the people in the world to go to heaven and the rest to go to hell. No matter how virtuous or vicious you are in life, one will still go to heaven or hell and cannot do/choose anything in life to change finality. The article continues with Calvin's stressing that "we mean the eternal decrees of God, by which he determined with himself whatever he wished to happen with regard to every man, All are not created on equal terms, but some preordained to eternal life, others to eternal damnation: and, accordingly, as each has been created for one or other of these ends, we say that he has been predestined to life or to death…" (18).
Judaism and Christianity can be comparable religions, but essentially they believe that there is only one God. Judaism mainly stress on having only one God and the unity of it. Christianity can be sometimes misunderstood, as Christians believe that the one God is the Holy Trinity. Therefore they both have a similarity of having one god. Both two religions believe that this God is the beginning and cause of all that came to earth.
First, the trinity doctrine sets the Christian view of God apart from all religious perspectives, including other monotheistic viewpoints (such as Judaism and Islam). Only the Christina God is one in essence but three in personhood (in philosophical terms: one Who and three Whos). This triune nature means that God is superpersonal (more than merely a personal being). The doctrine of the Trinity reveals God’s very nature and personhood and sets the faith apart from all other religions. It is also reveals God as an eternally relational being.
In the end I will conclude with putting my own opinion on the subject. The First difference in Islam and Christianity and the main difference is that Christianity believes Jesus to be God and Islam believes Jesus to be a prophet. John 1:1, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing
RELATING WITH THE GOVERNMENT Romans 13:1-7 By Rev. James May At the end of chapter 12 Paul’s teaching to the church on how we should behave toward one another, and toward our enemies in the church comes to a close. In chapter 13 Paul now begins a new subject matter, even though it still relates to chapter 12, the Bible now addresses how all of mankind should behave toward those who are placed in positions of governance over us. This isn’t just for the church, but for everybody. We are citizens of two kingdoms; one is the Kingdom of Heaven, and the other is the United States of America.
Each one is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. Christianity believes that God sent his son, Jesus, to be born of a virgin and pay the price of our sins with his death on the cross. However, Jesus rose from the grave on the third day. On the other hand, Islam only believes in the existence of Jesus as a prophet rather then the Son of God. So the Virgin Birth is irrelevant to Islamic beliefs.
The apocalyptic vision is universal in scope which in contrast to the prophets who’s focus is on Israel and its immediate neighbors. These writings of apocalyptic literature claim to reveal God’s purpose in history. As well as all nation and people the apocalyptic also view all spirit being as swept together in a conflict of proportions. 1) Cosmic Dualism is the continued battle between good and evil. 2) Chronologic Dualism is when the universe is divided into parts, the physical matter, and the ethereal spirit.
Christianity stands on the idea that Jesus is the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; that his life on earth, his crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension into heaven are proof of God 's love for humanity and God 's forgiveness of human sins; and that by faith in Jesus one may attain salvation and eternal life. This teaching is embodied in the Bible, specifically in the New Testament, but Christians accept also the Old Testament as sacred and authoritative Scripture. Christians is a monotheistic religion, meaning they only believe in one god. Christian believe that we are all born sinners due to Adam and Eve, but we can all reach salvation by faith in God and good works. In the
Another similarity that Christians and Muslims have is the belief of Jesus, despite that fact, Christians believe that Jesus is the son of God birthed by Holy virgin Mary, while Muslim believe that Jesus is a messenger sent from God to convey the people. Despite all of their similarities, the Christian and the Muslim religion have a lot of differences. Christians believe that God Exists in three distinct persons (The Trinity) the Father, the son, and the Holy spirit (Matthew 21:28). While Muslims believe that God (Allah) is not a trinity, and is looked through an Islamic view called strict Monotheism. Another difference that Christians and Muslims have is the book that they follow by.
It is the foundation for how a person thinks, what they consider right and wrong, beliefs and values, and is the basis for one’s perspective of the world. A Christian/Biblical worldview rests solely in the belief that God, God of the Bible, exists. Our worldviews determine the course our lives will take. Building Blocks of a Christian Worldview Believing that God created everything in the universe by simply speaking it into existence is the foundation of a Christian worldview. It is dictated by the Bible that is the inerrant and inspired Word of God where we learn about God himself, the Trinity,
