He wanted us to know, right from verse 1 of the Bible that He had created. So God could have still created heaven and earth and made evolution still happen. Ken miller said evolution is the only way that God could have created us in a world of moral and spiritual choices. So it’s up to us choose if we can
Describe the principle beliefs of Christianity Over the years, Christianity has organised its principle beliefs into a systematic theology. These principle beliefs have been discovered through scared text and writings and traditions of the Church. The principle beliefs include; Jesus as human and divine, Death and resurrection of Jesus, The nature of God and the Trinity, Revelation and Salvation. The divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ was easily understood in the time of the Roman Empire, as those could understand that a man could become a God. Athanasius suggested that Jesus was a God and also fully human at the same time and this theory was adopted as the correct teaching of the Church by the Roman Emperor Constantine.
Jesus was crucified; he died on the cross for our sins and was resurrected, enabling us to be saved from sin. This is a major part of the concept of Salvation and is demonstrated in John 3:17: “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” Jesus’ death gives Catholics an opportunity to experience eternal life in Heaven with God. Salvation is a doctrine that is often mentioned throughout the Bible in both the Old and New Testament. This core belief is first revealed in the Bible in Book one, demonstrating its importance to Christian life. In the Old Testament, Genesis 49: 18 states, “I look for your deliverance, Lord,” and in the New Testament, Acts 4:12 states, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” There are 3 main sacraments that ensure Salvation.
The goal of a Christian is to develop a close relationship with God through (Word of God) the ministry of Jesus Christ and by the aid of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the anointed one from God the Father who came to this world, to fulfill the Old Testament laws and prophecies. Jesus performed miracles which are recorded in the Gospels by the eyewitnesses. Christianity teaches that there is one God, one faith and one baptism; it teaches that God made the universe, the earth and He created Adam and Eve and that God created man in His image, that mean God’s character. That means every person is made in God’s image and likeness.
First topic: John 1:1-18 Pre-mortal life and the human spark of divinity. The unknown writer of the book of John was writing in context of the culture he lived in. John is very different from the Gospels of Mathew, Mark, and Luke in story emphasis. According to An Introduction To The New Testament, (Boring) the first passage of John, Chapter 1:1-18 was a hymn of the Johannine community of believers of the time. 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.
Religion is seen as mans attempt to reach God. Christianity teaches that the Bible is God’s way of trying to reach mankind. John 17:3 says that God wants to have a personal intimate relationship with man through His Son, Jesus Christ. What is right and wrong and how should I live? Right and wrong is based upon God’s holy standard, not
Genesis may be the most known book in the bible to refer to when talking about the origin of life, but there are also several other scripture readings. In Psalm 89:11, credit is given to God for creating the heavens and earth saying, “you founded the world and all that is in it”(Psalm 89:11, NIV). The question of identity is wanting to know what set humans apart from animals. This is another question that should come fairly easy to Christians. In Genesis 1:27, God is in the process of creating man.
This the world that God created and we live in to this day. In the natural world, Paul explains in Romans 1:20 “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities- His eternal power and divine nature-have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” With the many creations that God has produced, the world should not be presented in an evil way. God gives us chances every day to show what is right in the world and how everything should be treated. God wants us to present ourselves in righteousness rather than in sin. When we receive God and his word, we should receive it with open arms rather than resist it.
Of the idea of God, Dewey said, "it denotes the unity of all ideal ends arousing us to desire and actions.” Jesus Christ had a different belief when it came to the existence of God and the increase of “human good”. Jesus believes that he is the son of God and that he is also God. That view differs from Dewey’s view all together because Dewey believes that that there was not personal God or Christ. “Education” that omits reference to Jesus’ role in this world is not education at all. (John 14:6) Jesus believed that God had communicated truth to all mankind through personal revelation of Himself in Jesus Christ and today Christians believe that God reveals himself through propositional, verbalized revelation of Himself in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible.
Supporters and Opponents of the Divine Command Theory The principal components of the Divine Command Theory (DCT) are: in first place, the believe that an almighty God responsible for the creation of everything exists and because of this we owe him obedience. Second, the believe that what is wrong or right is determined by God, meaning that what he approves is the right thing and what he disapproves is the wrong thing. What God approves and disapproves can be found in the Bible, specifically in the Ten Commandments, which are clear examples of the things that God wants us to do and the things that he forbids. According to Hoff & Sommers (2010), John Arthur critics various aspects of the DCT, within these critics the most important ones are: in first place, the difficulty of demonstrating that God even exists. Second, he asks the following question, if God created evil and goodness, why can he simply make evil disappear?
