Baptism and the Lord’s Supper). Hammett goes on to detail how through these ordinances believers are united to Christ (263). He discusses the proper administration of these ordinances and explains how we should properly view these in our worship. This chapter focuses heavily on the theological, biblical, and practical issues surrounding each of the ordinances and our view on

Christian love must be guided by the moral teachings of scripture and the church. Sierra Brocks November 5, 2009 Experience Relations I do not believe that Foreman Audience can relate to the experience he present. The experience that he presents to his audience is not a experience of his own. Therefore, he does not have the passion to include in order to give his readers a more vivid picture of the situation. In order to write about an experience, one has to feel strong and have passion to really get through to the audience.
As a Christian chaplain candidate, My desire is to wear the cross, and my actions speak volumes about my faith. Because of some of the restrictions on direct evangelism, the most important call is to show Christ through my life, and allow others to ask the questions. The Holy Spirit will work through both our words and our actions. People have to understand that the chaplaincy in the United States Military has a long history dating back to the Revolution. The role of the chaplain has changed considerably.
We are not allowed to choose what we like to worship and rejected what we do not like. We cannot just worship God for what he has done but also for what he will do. The ideal state of worship is to be close to Isaiah like he was in chapter six of that book of the Bible. When we are lost we need to seek (and hope to find) the holiness of God and become aware of our sin in order to truly worship. Instead of going through the motions at church, we need to truly focus on what we are worshiping.
(Pg 30;33). Bill Fay stated the Christian believer must go out and share their faith with the non-believer through the use of the scriptures of the bible. And example was given by Bill Fay when he came across a young man that he was witnessing to concerning turn his life over to Christ, so Bill Fay referred to the scriptures and ask him to read what it said, after reading Bill ask what does it say, but the demons in the man did not want him to acknowledge the word of God. Bill asked the young man to read it many more time before the power through the scripture broke him away from the demons and into the arms of God.

Romans and Christian Worldview Bible 425-B05 3/1/2015 Because of Paul, the book of Romans teaches us about so many aspects of the Christian life. Paul’s letter was not meant to be a systematic theology, but rather a letter presentation of the Gospel. The book of Romans covers a wide variety of topics that are essential for followers of Christ to live by. The topics creation, sin, salvation, eschatology, ethics, and theology are the key points found in Paul’s letter, and understanding each is key to the growth of every believer’s relationship with God. CREATION On the first topic, creation, Paul teaches in Romans 1:19-20 that the world was spoken into existence by God.
As many came forward, John became known as the Baptizer, or John the Baptist. Jesus was even baptized by John. Though he was not repenting of sin, Jesus was aligning himself with John’s message and ministry. After all, Jesus himself would be the fulfillment of the message John was preaching.

A Study of Godly Ethics The Principles of a Biblical Worldview The Bible establishes the guidelines of God's ethical boundaries for all Christ followers. On some issues, God's Word speaks explicitly; however, there is less clarity in other matters and more need for discernment. As Christians learn, accept, and live the reality of Christ, they move towards a life of godliness.1 Through this process, Christians can begin to discern more clearly and live out a biblical worldview.2 Christ followers should be characterized by truth.3 If they are to be characterize by truth, what truth is must be interpreted. In John 17:17, Jesus prayed, “Sanctify them by the truth, your word is truth.” God has expressed Himself through Scripture; His Word is true, reliable, eternal, and the sacred authority.4 The Bible is the very word of God and should be the starting point for all thinking.5 Jesus also said that He is the truth.6 Jesus exemplifies wisdom and knowledge.7 God loves His creation enough to tell them how to live and promises to give understanding to those who seek Him.8 The root of man's dilemma often comes from not seeking God or misinterpreting the nature of God's truth.9 “The reason so few people act like Christians is that they do not think like Christians.”10 How then does one begin to think like a Christian? Christianity should be seen as the outline for godly decision making and a strategy for daily living.11 The Word of God has the final jurisdiction and is pertinent for the choices that Christians must make, many of which have moral consequences.
