Does this mean “all truth?” Does that role pertain to the special disciples (Apostles) only, or to all believers? 16:13-15. Bruce, p. 320. Jesus had already introduced the disciples to the truth, and the Spirit would only guide them along the way of the truth. Jesus also insists that the spirit will only speak that which he hears but not on his own impulse.
As a Christian our lives are to serve and obey God’s Laws his commandments and the purpose is to get into heaven. This and now is only a test to see if your worthy to enter and inherit his praise. In conclusion: The overall view of this module I learned about the Christian Worldview and how Christianity is viewed in the world. The Bible timeline open thoughts on my own beliefs, and knowing that I am a Christian and find more about my personal views. The detail outline really made me focus on critical thinking of GOD and what I truly believe in accordance to worldview and notice that majority of my commitments are consistent with the beliefs of Christian Theism.
As we analyze the question of did Jesus claim to be God, I believe that not only did Jesus claim to be God that Jesus is God. In the matter of does the Bible have authority? I strongly believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God; the Bible holds all truths and revelations for our lives. If we believe what the Bible says then we know with confidence that we have what God intended for us as believers to know about him. Also we have seen why our testimonies are important in sharing the gospel.
It is not a reliable way. This includes reasoning and making predictions without further testing. Faith is another way that a lot of Christian believers us to seek the truth. The faith based way of seeking the truth is different from the scientific method in that it can answer a lot of questions about the most important truths. (Religious-Science.com 2008) The truths about the purpose of life and that our creator, God wants us to be happy and that he has a plan for each one of us.
Even if this thought is not always shown outwardly it is the core of our thinking. Nash tells us it is important to know what you believe and stand for because as he stated, “Thy can be compared to a train running on tracks that have no switches. Once a person commits himself to a certain set of presuppositions, is direction and destination are determined” (Nash, 1992, 23). Our Christian life and relationships will all reflect our biblical Christian worldview in some way, every day. “Our faith has important things to say about the whole of human life” (Nash, 1992, 20).
There are lots of different interpretations of which source of morality is the greatest for use within the contemporary world. There are also two main categories these sources fall into; intellectual or instinctual. The Bible “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, in order that the man of God may be fully qualified, equipped for every good work.” For orthodox Protestants (Jehovah’s witnesses) and Evangelical Christians they affirm the Bible, first and foremost, as the inspired narrative of God's loving plan of redemption for His creation. These sects of Christianity tend to believe that the Bible is the only method that should be used when making ethical decisions, with writer Carl F. H. Henry calling ‘biblical ethics’ ‘Christian ethics.’ There is a diversity of approaches in the Bible which Christians can use to make ethical decisions; the Old Testament which includes the Decalogue, many of which have been applied in practical law today (‘thou shalt not kill’); and the New Testament involving the teachings of Jesus and St. Paul and the Golden Rule (‘treat others how you’d like to be treated’). The Bible is the witness to the central events of the Christian faith.
Secular worldviews often see human relationships as self-serving with an ultimate goal of getting ahead of the other person for bettering on oneself. In contrast, a biblical worldview of human relationships seeks to serve others first and place God above all else. Romans 2:8 speaks on the ultimate fate for the “selfishly ambitious” who do not obey the Word of God. Throughout the Bible, there are several instances of the ultimate human relationship found in Scripture. For example, Mark 12:31 states, “ …’You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’” as Jesus’ proclamation of human relationships with one another and God.
How Being a Christian Equips Me to Help Others through Counseling There are various reason how being a Christian can equip me to help others through counseling. God calls us all in to the ministry for and gives us special gifts, which all help us in counseling. By following the biblical values and morals that we learn and the education we gain from secular sources we are fully able to help those who come to us. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 9:9-11 says: Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning. "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
This is why God created a universe fit for human life, and why he laid down guidelines for how to live our lives. According to Christianity, each one of us is created for communion with God; God wants to know us, to love us, and to rejoice with us. Examples in the Bible are Proverbs 19: 21 and Ephesians 3: 20. The most basic principle of the Christian moral life is the awareness that every person bears the dignity of being made in the image of God. He has given us an immortal soul and through the gifts of intelligence and reason enables us to understand the order of things established in his creation.
Living by faith is not a choice nor the result of a stalwart human effort, but the working of the power of the Holy Spirit in one’s life, transforming one’s heart in such a way as to willingly submit to God’s call to a life of self-sacrifice, self-renouncing and the Cross. It seemed to me that my Father’s command to live by faith opened the floodgates of severe trials and afflictions to see if I would trust Him implicitly with all my life and heart or would apostate. Seeking to help me understand the kind of life the Lord was calling me live, on the 12th of September 2015 the Lord told me to read the history of the persecution of the Apostles and the Early Church at the hands of the Roman emperors and Christians in the Middle Ages (1208-1834) at the hands of the Roman Catholic church, and in particular the persecution of Dr. Martin
