“We need Jesus to justify and glorify us, so we find the true meaning to ourselves.” In (Romans 2;15), Paul says that the Gentiles didn’t have the law while, the Jews did, meaning that humanity has the law or not. Such in (Romans 2:12) Paul says whether or not people have sinned against the law or not, all are condemned regardless as the Jews began teaching a stronger condemnation because they had the law all along. Where it all wraps up in (Romans 4:15) Paul asserts that knowledge of the law brings wrath, the Gentiles conversely didn’t have the law. Meaning that the Jews are held to higher standards then the Gentiles. When you look at the views today, many people are believing today that we don’t need God, and he’s not who everyone thought he was.
Yes, of Gentiles too, since there is only one God who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through the same faith.” Through this scripture, we are given the information that God does not pour His grace and mercy unto those of a specific race or gender, but their faith. Matthew 5:45 says, “that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and
The Holy Spirit leaves in me and has helped me discern what is right and wrong. God is perfect; therefore, as a Christian I strive everyday to be more like God. Evil exists because the devil, which initially was an angel of light, wanted to be above God and no one can be more than God. He created me with a purpose in life and is to develop my spiritual life, serve Him, others and follow His word. I am committed to my Christian beliefs since I based my knowledge in the Bible.
Paul’s theology included: * The Resurrection as the pivotal moment in human history * Christ is for all humanity, not only the Jew * The nature and effects of sin- life without God and Christ * Salvation was won by Christ’s death and resurrection and given as pure gift * The church as the body of Christ * Baptism and radical equality within the body of Christ The impact of Paul’s theology on Christianity is that of an enormous amount. His theology has been used as a source of
Secondly, they are the chosen people of God, which means they live beyond the rest of mankind. Thirdly, they are always the witness of God. However, the history of Jews is full of tears, because they found it difficult to live at peace with the rest of mankind. Christianity, the religion emerged from Judaism, is known as a new religion by that time, Jesus Christ was a Jew, but he created Christianity by adding supernumerary laws to the Jewish law based on mercy not only on justice—the forgiveness of the original sin and the promise of eternal life in paradise for Christians who are willing to be the witness of Jesus. Islam, the youngest religion in all three, was founded by Muhammad.
Judaism is a monotheism which means that they believe in a single, all-powerful God. This God was the creator of Heaven and Earth, which is different from being the Lord of Heaven and Earth. “The first people to insist upon monotheism, the Jews, throughout their history, found this to be their greatest source of strength.” “It is often suggested that Akhenaten’s religion and Zoroastrianism have influenced the development of monotheism in Judaism.” The second unique aspect of Judaism is the covenant. The covenant was a pact between the Jews and God. The Jews vowed to worship only God and to obey his laws.
O.K with that being said, one might ask, why do we need salvation? And by me being a sinner, what places me back in right standings with God? Let's turn to Genesis 3; which shows us through Adam's disobedience to the commandment of God, sin entered into the world creating a
Paul wanted us to be aware of the fact that God is not just the God of the Jews but also the God of all peoples. “ Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of the Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too,”(Romans 3:29 NIV). Jesus Christ was clear in his instructions to the disciples about the Great Commission.
Identify one or two points of similarity or difference regarding the Jewish and Christian conceptions of human nature. (I didn't discuss this the other day but you can look in your notes to try to answer the question). A2. Christian conception of human nature relies on that the man inherited the “original sin” from Adam, so mankind is in need of forgiveness of sin. Christians choose their actions by knowing right from wrong, humans are in need of salvation.
Jesus came to this world Matthew 28:19 to tell us that we are free from sin, follow him, create other disciples and reign in the glory of God for eternity. Romans 3:23 says to follow the commandments, Mark 7:20-23 says to have good thoughts not to have immoral ones. Humans have morals built in them, they need to follow Jesus Christ and represent him. 5. The Question of Destiny- Christian’s belief that after death there is eternal Salvation through Jesus Christ or eternal damnation in hell.
