Most Christian students Walsh says, see no real connection between their studies and their faith. There is isolation between faith and studies. Walsh explains how there is no Christian approach to papers and work. Another option that occurs because of some Christians feeling uncomfortable with an isolationist approach is a mixing of both. Walsh calls this Christian+university=A bit of both.
In Buddhist teachings, the existence of a personal creator and Lord is denied but Christianity believes in a creator and each may have a relationship with the creator, Jesus. According to Buddhist belief, human life is not considered to have much worth and having only temporary existence. Life is understood in such a way in getting rid of all desire (good and bad) and not placing any value on this life on earth. In Christianity people are of infinite worth, made in the Image of God and will exist eternally. Buddhism is not really a religion but a moral philosophy designed to overcome suffering and it was designed to obtain relief from suffering by means of human effort alone.
In the book he discusses that many counselors as well as Christian counselors hardly ever use the Bible while they are in their counseling session. However, modern counselors rarely use scriptures to support their counseling models. In the book McMinn tries to attract the attention of counselors to the importance of scripture use in their counseling with their clients. Counseling is a very important personal process that reflects on the counselor’s spiritual life, education, and background experience is all a part of effective counseling. In the book McMinn focused on how counselors avoid using any type of religion with their client such as prayer or scripture usage.
Spiritual people who follow Christianity, or Buddhism are often called just and religious. Of course, this doesn't have to apply everywhere. A christian church, when referring to the followers of the devil, often call them cultists astray
Such as, Mormons believe in God and Jesus Christ. They follow the Bible and the Book of Mormon, whereas Buddhist do not believe in one particular God but rather that we can reach enlightenment like God, they do not have a set “Bible” but rather rules to follow and texts that tell how to live. I found that the similarities between the two religions are that they both want to do good for and in this world that we live. Both Mormonism and Buddhism follow similar commandments to live their life by. Whether it be to reach heaven and find favor in Heavenly Father eyes so that they may live in the presence of God Almighty forever or to reach a point of enlightenment, and realization of the world around them, they are here for generally the same purpose; to make this world a better place and to help those around
Our language was based on music and religion. We would sing about god, our saints, our virgin, and anything that was church related. When we would just get together and not rehearse we would usually talk about church and talk about the bible. Being in different communities makes you realize that almost any place you hang out in, everyone that is involved somehow makes the place where you hang out, a discourse community. The reason for this is because you may use a different language; eat different foods than you usually do when you are at some other place rather than the place you are at, at the moment.
God’s attributes are typically broken down into two categories: Incommunicable (not shared) and Communicable (shared). Some of God’s incommunicable attributes are (taken from Doctrine: What every Christian should believe by Mark Driscoll and Gary Breshears): 1. Independence – God does not need us, or the rest of creation, for anything yet we, and the rest of creation, need him and can glorify him and bring him joy. 2. Unchangeableness – God is unchanging in his being, perfections, purposes, and promises, yet God does act and feel emotions, and he acts and feels differently in response to different situations.
These scriptures can be found in 2King 9:30, Jeremiah 4:30, and Ezekiel 23:40. Makeup is a non-issue biblically and nothing has been said against it. God has made everything plain that he’s against so why wouldn’t he plainly make mention if makeup was a sin as well. Many religious people twist scripture to be convenient for manmade rules. There are so many other things that God is concerned with and makeup just isn’t one of them.
I served but I only served for the church people, not for God. I praised the Lord only at church but nothing from my time alone. I did read the Bible but with no hunger to learn. I did memorize the Bible stories but it was from the church, not from my own time. While I was not having a
E) It is important for Christians to believe in miracles discuss this statement. I believe it is important for Christians to believe in miracles because in the Bible many miracles are mentioned and by a Christian disagreeing with this they’re denying a part of their faith and so if a Christian did not agree that miracles exist how is it that they can claim they are a Christian? Christians most of the time would never disagree with the existence of miracles because for example, many people claimed that Jesus was not the Messiah or Son of God and therefore the only real proof Jesus had was that he performed miracles and by denying that miracles actually happened then you are in theory denying that Jesus was the Messiah. That is why, in my opinion it is essential for Christians to believe in Miracles otherwise they are practically denying half of there faith and the thing that separates Christianity from Judaism. Christians could argue that they believe Jesus was still the Messiah and everything he stood for is what they believe in but maybe the authenticity of miracles today can be questioned as there is no Jesus around to prove them being performed by a Deity just as the definition says there should be.
