“Nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God”(Bible). Another example of Christian influence is the character Grendel. “Descended from the race of Cain, Grendel bore the age old curse, the mark of murder, of his death-dealing ancestor” (Rosenberg). Cain, who was the first born son of Adam and Eve, was cursed for murdering his brother Abel. “A mark was put upon him to warn others that killing Cain would provoke the vengeance of God, that if someone did something to harm Cain, the damage would come back sevenfold” (Wikipedia).
Grifin M. Price Kendra Gallos English III H 3/21/18 Gun Control Will Not Solve Anything Guns are given a bad reputation because of the terrors that can be committed by people who want to cause harm. Those who are gun control advocates wish to ban certain weapons without basis, ban certain weapon attachments, and restrict the rights of the second amendment. Gun control supporters base their opinion on statistics about gun violence that use a portion of data that is not about gun violence just to boost the value of the number. Supporters of gun control dismiss the saying “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun,” because they are misinformed about the number of defensive gun uses (DGU) which far outnumbers the
Anyone can have it. God is the forgiver of all sins. John chapter three says “For God so loved the world, he gave his only son; that whoever believe in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” This scripture is basically saying that God loves us so much, He sent his son, Jesus Christ, into the world to die for our sins. Another example of this in scripture is Romans chapter five. It says “For God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” This verse basically says the same thing as John chapter three.
Gun control laws have become such a huge controversy in the United States due to the fact that citizens believe their Second Amendment right is being taken away from them. In my eyes, I believe that extended gun control measures should be taken to ensure that access to assault weapons should be limited to certain people. I believe one deserve a well rounded background check to see if any mental health issues are visible. I also believe you have the right to own a weapon and the government is not trying to take away your hunting rifles, personal permitted handguns, etc. They government is emphasizing more on the fully automatic weapons, explosives, armor and other things that only the military should have access to.
God made us and loves us He does not want us (His children) to fear death. Jesus made the ultimate sacrifice in which we do not have to fear anything. Jesus claimed to be God In the Bible, in John 10:30, it says, “I and the Father are one.” Jesus was talking to the Jews that had gathered around him to stone him and they mocked him so Jesus replied that he and God are one. Jesus also said to them that even if they did not believe he was the Son of God to believe his works so that they may understand that God is in him. (John 10:37-38) Jesus never tried to hide the fact that he is the Son of God nor did he ever do anything in secret, everything was there in plain sight for everyone to see and to believe.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” (The Holy Bible John 13:34) Jesus teaches this commandment to his disciples. Jim Casy tries to live this way by preaching and showing others that God cares. In The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck shows Casy as a prime example of Christ-likeness during the Great Depression. Through his commitment to save mankind and by living a life that reflected Jesus Christ; he shows others how to live like him.
Believers practicing loving God with all their mind would be a witness to this world and even a way of reaching out in compassion and gentleness we have left behind by burying our arguments in our Bibles and not engaging the questions raised by the lost. Understanding where Evangelicals have fallen intellectually will help foster obedience to Christ’s command to love God with all of our mind. The major arguments held by critics Richard Hofstadter, George M. Marsden, and Alister McGrath, declare modern Evangelicalism anti-intellectual. Some of the main reasons for this are the average Evangelicals fear of defending their faith, the separation of the spiritual and secular, and the slothfulness Evangelicals have to
I believe that the Hebrew Scriptures are relevant to us today, as we can relate to some of the stories showing us how we can be better people, and how we can live our lives. Our Bible is full of stories to learn from, such as, myths, legends, teachings and historical articles. Parts of the story of Abraham show us about being faithful and loyal to God. God has a lot of trust in Abraham as Abraham did whatever God intrusted him to do, such as, sacrifice his own son to show he was faithful to God. When Abraham was about to sacrifice his son of prophet, God told Abraham to stop and use a sheep instead.
Art is good because This pathos and ethos made people, no matter the North or the South, to feel that they are in unity. Both sides were suffering the same war and urged to end it, while they shared a same religion. God plays an important role to connect the people together, which enhances Lincoln’s credibility in his speech besides his position as a president and occasion of this speech. Lincoln ended his speech by claiming that they would “strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations” (Wilhoit 138). This pathos describes how Lincoln would care for his people and how he would put the task of helping the people suffering from the war first, serving as a strong pathos since it is not only emotionally affecting his people, but also encouraging and giving them hope.
Rom. 5:8: But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (4.) We must individually receive Jesus as Savior and Lord. Scriptures: John 1:12: Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, he gave the right to become children of God.
