And just like in life we didn’t get to choose our consequence for our action. But whether you make a good or bad choice there is always a consequence. Being obedient is important for our safety and the Lord sees obstacles ahead that we may not be capable of seeing, so we just have to trust in him and follows his commandments. The savior is the ultimate example of obedience. The savior was always obedient.
Being independent does not mean that we have to cut everybody out of our lives to accomplish what we desire. Equality 7-2521 says he has found “the answer”, which he had long been searching for. That he, himself will be the meaning of new things. He announces that he is done with the word “we” because it is the “root of all evils”. Equality 7-2521 now sees himself as the “face of god”.
It can be seen as a good approach to morality as it does not allow people from different denominations such as cultures or where you are born or in different situation they may find themselves to build their own moral rules and framework to life, it is personal but is guided by these innate rules. Religious people also share natural law ideas as they argue that there is an eternal unchanging part of morality which remains unchanged regardless of personal opinions and preferences. They believe that God created them with a purpose and that all the rules guiding them from natural law help them to fulfil this purpose. Christianity has a great deal of support for the view that there is a natural law of morality. The Christian understanding of this concept is based largely upon the work of Thomas Aquinas as he explained that faith and reason are closely related.
He had answered many of my questions about my faith and what I believe is real. This does not mean that this book has changed my values and views of my religion, however has made me a more devote person to my religion. I agree with Paine as well that we are always contradicting ourselves. With my church group, we always say that we fit the Bible stories to fit and suit our need, but always show our true devotion. These stories are to be taken with a grain of salt and not to be take as seriously as they are being taken.
Just like a religious believer who states “god loves us” but can’t explain the contradiction of evil in the world, believers qualify their statements by explaining god’s love is not like humans love he calls this “death by a thousand qualifications”. Therefore religious language is meaningless. However religion has responded to the falsification principle. R.B Braithwaite argued that the falsification principle explains religious language as cognitive when it if in fact non cognitive and therefore cannot be falsified, religious language is therefore still meaningful. Hare also responds to the falsification principle, showing that religious statements are meaningful even though they cannot be falsified because they have a significant impact for the people using the statement.
Be at peace among yourselves.”) what God is trying to teach us about respect towards others. We cannot just sit there and disrespect others due to their imperfections, for every single one of us has imperfections but yet have great respected qualities that differ from one person to another. In the healthcare management field one must be able to respect opinions of those above you as well as the opinions of those below you. Interactions with other administrators, chief executive directors, and co-workers must be done without vain glorying oneself. The bible teaches us this in Philippians 2:3 (“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves”).
Winthrop states that since they are the chosen people, God will not be forgiving big errors. If the Puritans forsake their mission to create a truly godly society they will suffer the wrath. They are to be good Christians if they are to gain the promise land. Winthrop wanted to establish a theocracy. He hoped his colony would serve as a model for all other societies.
There are people who do good things because of their faiths and the camaraderie of the various religious groups is undeniably beneficial for local communities. However, people who do good things simply because their faith tells them to do so and not because they can see the good they can do with their own eyes need a good wake up call. No God, Preacher, Priest or religious person should have to influence the actions and decisions you make, isn't the human nature enough? Are people too afraid to act upon their own instincts? Will people forever be sheep and follow the words of others, the words of people who lived thousands of years
Things that should guide people towards repentance could potentially keep their focus looking inside themselves. Once a person can truthfully see how sinful their thoughts and lives are, it can and will hopefully lead them to depend on God. While Crabb is relying on God for answers, Rogerian theory states that “no other human being can possibly determine what the correct or incorrect behavior is for any other individual. Because of this, Kensit says that therapists must keep this in mind and use non-directive but yet supportive therapy. (Kensit, 2000).
However, secular psychology does not go far enough. It cannot supply the resources we need to address the real problem in man's soul, his sin. Biblical doctrine is where we get the true picture of man's nature and problem and an adequate understanding of the resources we need to become whole. The Bible must be our underlying foundation at all times in working with people. We must never lose sight of God's perspective on man as revealed in His word.
