Does this mean “all truth?” Does that role pertain to the special disciples (Apostles) only, or to all believers? 16:13-15. Bruce, p. 320. Jesus had already introduced the disciples to the truth, and the Spirit would only guide them along the way of the truth. Jesus also insists that the spirit will only speak that which he hears but not on his own impulse.
This book is much like what most Christians use called the Holy Bible. They both contain scriptures that are believed to be actually sent from God and is God’s word and will. Jehovah’s Witnesses also Use and distribute a publication called the Watchtower. They use the Watchtower to go over certain subjects such as avoiding premarital sex and the grieving process when losing a loved one. Christians believe that there is only one God.
It gives great emphasis to the chronological order of the words of God and takes the written words as a whole, using each and every word literally to support your walk with God. Wesleyan theology, on the other hand, focuses on a more abstract interpretation of the bible. Wesleyans see the bible as an enhancement to the Christian faith. They are more into having great confidence in their faith and using the bible as a reference in order to follow God in a more abstract way. They focus on their relationship with God as a whole and don’t see the bible as a step-by-step manual as Fundamentalists do.
There are not many authors throughout church history who have been able to touch the centrality and supremacy of Christ like T. Austin Sparks and Watchman Nee. Their writings are apparently floating to the surface of modern religious Christianity... and they are choking out the empty dead adages and 12 step "purpose-driven" life plans. These simple Christ-centered messages are helping believers everywhere to see the simplistic nature of our faith. And Watchman Nee touches on so of these in his book “Christ: The Sum of All Spiritual Things” In "Christ: The Sum of All Spiritual Things," Nee says that Too often Christians view Christ as the one who gives us the stuff or the "things" we need to succeed and to live victoriously. We must stop running after the accumulation of worthless religious "things" and find our satisfaction in the Person of Christ.
“So where does this leave thee philosophers, the scholars and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish. Since God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would never know him through human wisdom, he has used our foolish preaching to save those who believe.” (1 Corinthians 1:20-21 New living Translation). In the following verses it is stated that God saw in his wisdom that the world would never know him through human wisdom. Human wisdom is limited, because its bases off of prior knowledge and instinct, the wisdom of the world from philosophers, scholars, Greeks, Jews, and Gentiles is foolish to God.
2. The Bible is a revelation of God in that God chooses to use it in working salvation in the believing community. 3. The Bible is a revelation of God in that the Bible tells us about God (Couch, 2009, p4.). The essential or main responsibility of evangelical theology is defining the divine transcendence immanence within the faith shared as a believing society within a specified literary context.
Bill Fay said that there are two basic principles that will work in sharing the scriptures. The first one is by faith, which comes from “Faith comes from hearing the word of God (Romans 10:17), then the second principle would be how do you understand what you have just read (Luke 10:26). The scriptures of the bible are the profound authority of God, Bill Fay would have the non-believer to read the scriptures and ask if they understand what they have read so if they say no then he will ask them in
Isaiah 44:6 states: “I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.” James 2:19 states, “Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well:” In the book of John, we can read John quote Jesus saying,” I and the Father are one.” Jesus also preached the Holy Spirit of being part of the Godhead, “"And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever; the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it does not behold Him or know Him, but you know Him because He abides with you, and will be in you." ... "If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him, and make Our abode with him." (John 14:16-17, 23). In the above paragraph, you can clearly see how the God is the one and only, and that the one and only God is actually pieced together by three main characteristics. In the Mormon dogma.
This is related to the part to the manner of God’s self-revelation in war. Wars did take place in ancient Israel, but why was so much of it preserved as a big part of the revealed scripture (The Problem of War in the Old Testament, p. 11)? Third, there is a problem of ethics. In the New Testament God is loving and caring. Are our ethics taught on the New Testament alone, or the entire bible?
Again, what similarities would affect your choice? Let us examine these three monotheistic religions which are based on faith in God. Judaism believes there is one God who cannot be made up of parts. To attempt to divide God's oneness is seen as a pagan throwback to many gods. Islam embraces an immaterial, invisible God -- one
