Through his commitment to save mankind and by living a life that reflected Jesus Christ; he shows others how to live like him. He believes in his mission so strongly that he willingly gives up his freedom and his life like Jesus Christ did. In the book, he discovers in himself a commitment to save mankind (Owens 40). He tells Tom Joad: “I figgered about the Holy Sperit and the Jesus road. I figgered, ‘Why do we got to hang it on God or Jesus?
Job 4: 7-21 is taken from Eliphaz’s speech to Job. After undergoing immense suffering for no apparent reason, Job curses his life and birth and seeks comfort from his friends. Although Job is a good and holy man, Eliphaz states that suffering is the result of sin. He is implying that Job’s suffering is a result of a sinful life, although we already know the true reason for his pains. In verse 7, “Think now, who that was innocent ever perished, or were the upright cut off?”, Eliphaz basically says that the good do not suffer.
Discipleship in today’s world can be in the form of a Christian counseling. Christian counseling is counseling or psychotherapy grounded in the Christian faith. Christian counselors integrate the core beliefs of the word of God into services offer to patients. They see the bible as the source of truth. They understand the bible is the final authority.
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.
The interplay of faith and reason in the trial of Job is similar to that of Abraham (and the story of his son), as they are both put to trial in order to test their faithfulness to God. Even though this ‘test’ is beyond logical understanding, reason becomes overridden by their steadfast belief in God, meaning, although God presented challenges that seemed unreasonable to his believers, Abraham and Job both kept faith in Him, even if it meant losing their loved ones and properties, all for the sake of keeping God alive in their life. In detail, Job is a well-respected, god-fearing man who is very devout to his faith. There came a time when Satan approached God so that he may put Job to the test and prove to Him that his faithful servant was only loyal because of his abundance in material wealth. What seems incomprehensible to reason is why God, an almighty and good being, would let Satan freely oppress Job, an innocent man.
Mark’s Gospel has a vast number of examples portraying Jesus as a leader of new teachings. In particular these include Jesus’ divine way of instructing the faith in ways that enlivened and transformed the lives of the people he met. In Mark’s Gospel we learn that Jesus wanted to spread the word of the Holy Spirit and the kingdom of God. He travelled many places in his ministry telling parables to spread the word. “Let us go so that I may proclaim the message there also; as that is what I came out to do” (Mark 1:38).
The book continues after the autobiographical section, where Augustine reflects on the bible, mainly Genesis, and continues to try and find the true meaning of God. Augustine composes this tale to detail his own sins and to praise God. He entitles this book Confessions because he is essentially confessing to God and attempting to repent for the sins he committed during his life. He tells his story to praise God for lifting him from his life of sin and lust to a life of enlightenment. St. Augustine directly addressed God and thanks God for creating him and giving him redemption.
The Bible is the basis for many major Christian beliefs; it is used in the liturgy of Christianity; it is the basis for prayer and it provides the guidelines for the behaviour of Christians. It is particularly in the context of sacramental liturgy or worship that the Bible is viewed as as important and sacred, for it is here where Christians celebrate the Eucharist, Mass and Lordʼs Supper. The Bible teaches them about the nature of God and the ministry and teachings of Jesus. Through the Bible, the basis of Christian Belief is interpreted and accepted by the adherents. The Bible teaches and illustrates Christian key beliefs and ideas.
Christian Education is a part of God’s purpose to put everything in Creation under the feet of Christ; it serves as part of His purpose to subdue people from all nations to the glory of God. I also think a Christian Education is a better education, because it feed the soul as well as the mind. It addresses the whole human being; it involves the body, sprit and the mind. One important goal of Christian Education is to teach the student to reason biblically. If each adult person or the parents of younger student took it upon themselves to be more Christ-like and build their foundation of education to glorify God, they would choose the Christian Education over the Public Education, which is controlled by the state.
The church is led by the preacher and deacons in the church. Relationship with each other: The religion that stresses a relationship with each other is that of Christianity. A person is to love God and love others as Jesus summed up the Ten Commandments from Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5. Through these efforts, one seeks to reconcile if something was done wrong to them and to strive to become more like Christ everyday of their lives. This means not repeating the same sins over and over again, which can hurt relationships one may encounter on a daily
