This evidence is consistent with Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Paul eluded to this when he said that God’s invisible qualities, eternal power, and divine nature is clearly seen, being understood by what has been made, so that men are without excuse (Rom.1:20). Therefore, we are to worship the Creator and not the creation (1:25). But fallen man do not give God the honor and glory for all the beauty and order He designed in His wonderful universe He created.
According to scripture “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23. This scripture is saying we have all sinned against God, we all make mistakes and fall short of what God expects from us but He still shows us grace and mercy through His Son Jesus Christ! That does not mean we have a license to sin it just shows Gods amazing love for us! We should still strive to be “Christ-Like” in every aspect of our lives as to not allow another to stumble on our account. The bible also states “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them” Genesis 1:27.
ii) Those who believe in Christ become sons of God (John1:10, 12) and they will not be condemned (John3:16-18), the believers are entitled for eternal life. iii) INCARNATION: How Christ the Word became flesh/man and came to dwell among mankind. (John 10)Though many dispute the deity of Christ, it is the truth. God himself at Jesus baptism attested to Jesus as his only begotten son (Matthew 3:14, 15). IV) Justification Doctrine: The believer should learn and eternalize the message of redemption and justification.
What Defines a Father? by Kurt Bruner The Christian faith acknowledges Jesus Christ as the one and only Son of God. Yet Jesus taught His disciples to address God as "our Father in heaven." Since Jesus is the only Son of God, why did He invite us all to call God "Father"? Obviously, Jesus holds a unique position as God incarnate, the second person of the Holy Trinity.
When, in the fullness of time,” God sent the long promised Redeemer, he sent not merely a human empowered to teach and act in his name, but his only-begotten Son. Jesus Christ is no mere human; he is God-become-human that he might be the mediator between God and us. Jesus Christ expressed the threefold office he holds as the God-Man in these words, “I am the way and the truth and the life---Jn 14:6. Jesus is the life, our priest who redeemed us by his death on the cross who shares with us his divine
The plot in this story is simple, the Word, attributed as Jesus Christ, helps God to create our world, he then obtains mortal life and while containing that essential spark of divinity, he generously passes on the ability for us to receive our own divine spark, thus making us children of God as well. He then returns to the world where God the creator lives with Wisdom, who was also with God in the beginning before creation. The Word and Wisdom both share in the divine spark; admonishing us, the children of earth to take heed and to believe so that we may obtain that essential divine spark. Wisdoms words to the people echo the writer of John, “for whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord…”, (Proverbs 8:35-36) What we may today think of as ambiguous could very well have been plain and simple to the readers of the book then The beginning
“Explain the Judeo- Christian concept of God as a law-giver and judge” God loves and cares for his creation because of this he creates rules in order for his creation to live together harmoniously. Judaeo-Christians have many views about God as law giver and judge. Firstly God can be seen as Law giver in Exodus 20 when God is said to have revealed the 10 commandments to Moses, but the Children of Israel have just been warned that if they approach him directly, he may break out against them and kill them. In this story it God is seen as omnipotent and the presence of Him is a mortal danger and threat. He gives direct commands to Moses and Moses obeyed God's orders despite personal danger and overwhelming odds.
This depicts the covenant that God made with Abram and Sarai and because He is a true God, Abraham and Sarah produced many generations of descendants, despite their old age. God shows Christians that He is the truth in John 14:6. Jesus says, “I am the way and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me.” This shows Christians that Jesus Christ is the truth and that He will save them. The Christian God is also special because He forgives sins.
This intended that he was the divine Son of God and recognised as being ‘one with the Father’. Christian adherents believe of the divinity through the birth of Virgin Mary and the Son of God. Shown in the scripture passage Matthew 1:16, “and to Jacob was born Joseph the husband of Mary, by whom was born Jesus, who is called Christ”, this can explicitly identify the Virgin birth, thus showing divinity. He was recognised as being human, living with normal human restrictions and sufferings however; was considered Son of God as his life, death and resurrection plays importance in humanity. Through the divinity and humanity of the Christ, Christians and believers share the stories through word of mouth.
Jesus never tried to hide his miracles and always performed them where they could be seen with many witnesses. Dr. Elmer Towns says in his book, Core Christianity (What is Christianity all about? ), he says, “When an individual understands the deity of Jesus––that He is God––… The miracle was His conception by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the Virgin Mary.” Another topic that this paper will reflect on is death. In general, many people fear death, but God in the Bible says that we should not fear anything that the enemy has planned for His people, the children of God. God made us and loves us He does not want us (His children) to fear death.
