“A mark was put upon him to warn others that killing Cain would provoke the vengeance of God, that if someone did something to harm Cain, the damage would come back sevenfold” (Wikipedia). Grendel represents darkness, were as darkness represents evil and opposite being light which represents good. Within the Christian faith Jesus Christ represents light, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (Bible). In the Bible, there is the constant battle between good and evil, the battle between Beowulf and Grendel was also the battle between good and
He asked the author for help because he could not find his shrimp for fishing. The author saw the shrimp and pointed it to the kid. Then he went back to the bridge. After a while, the kid let out a “Hey! Hey!” and the prettiest tarpon the author had ever seen came almost six feet out of the water.
In the next section is related to the consecration of Aaron and his sons. All God asked for was to follow what Moses had instructed them to do so when offering the sin offering, the burnt offering and the offering of well-being. In Leviticus 10, Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu were consumed by God’s fire, therefore they died, because they did not respect the instructions provided by Moses. They decided that they would just burn incense and made an “alien fire”, God was not pleased so he consumed them with the fire. Moses then said to Aaron: “This is what the LORD meant when He said: Through those near to Me I show Myself holy, And gain glory before all people.” Aaron was silent after that.
God is by definition Omnipotent (All-knowing) and the writers of the bible show this in different biblical accounts. Firstly, the writers of the bible refer to God as “causa Sui”, meaning god is the creator of himself and this demonstrates how God, as a creator, is omnipotent because if God had a creator then that creator would be more powerful than God. God being “causa Sui” demonstrates how he's superior also. Moreover, God being “Causa Sui” has similarities to Aristotle’s concept of the prime mover. However the comparison between God and Aristotle’s prime mover has some differences, such as the prime mover is just an abstract idea: it is not as loving as God nor does it wish to seek a relationship with humanity.
THEO 202 D02 LUO The Image of God and Chosen Vocation The belief that man is created in the image of God is a fundamental biblical doctrine. This doctrine teaches us that God created Adam and Eve according to His image and in his divine likeness. Therefore man has a position of prominence within God's creation. Genesis 1.26-27 states, “26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” This passage of the Bible “state intensely the fact that men and women uniquely reflect God”  Even though the Bible does not expressively tells us what are the characteristic of the image of God it does implied four unique aspects of His image: “The image of God includes a rational aspect, though not limited to rationality”.
All types of evil have the potential to cause contradiction between reality and the established conception of a personal God. In the following I will examine the problem of evil and attempt to establish why the presence of evil is the most potent argument against theism. The classical notion of a monotheistic God ascribes certain divine qualities to Him and I will proceed with the assumption that he possesses these qualities. God is conceived as an ultimate perfectly good being, with the unique characteristics of omnipotence and omniscience. God is the knower of all things past and present and has the divine power to do anything.
Explain How The Bible Shows God as Creator The Bible has many different ways of showing God as the creator of the universe. The Judaeo-Christian belief is that everything has been created; therefore there must have been a creator. They believe that this creator is God. God is referred to by The Bible as being ‘causa si’ (something that creates itself) which demonstrates how God, as creator, is omnipotent (all-powerful), because He has no creator and therefore no one more powerful than Himself. In addition, the Gospel of Isaiah refers to God as creator on multiple occasions: ‘Do you not know?
Simon and Andrew, as well as James and John, drop their nets and follow him. Jesus exhibits his authority in Galilee, where he cleanses a leper (1:40–45). Mark reports that Jesus heals a paralytic, Simon’s sick mother-in-law, and a man with a withered hand. The miracles cause the crowds that gather to watch Jesus to become bewildered, fearful, and antagonistic. The Pharisees and followers of Herod begin plotting to kill Jesus.
If they were all powerful gods couldn’t they have somehow blocked out all the sounds of mankind or even send some kind of warning to the people? In the Book of Genesis God decided that mankind was becoming too wicked, and God was sorry he created them. (Gen. 6:6). I thought that God’s reason made more sense to me; he saw his creation become something he had not intended it to be corrupted and full of evil and he could not stand it. In The Epic of Gilgamesh the gods planned to wipe out everyone, but the god Ea decides to warn Utnapishtim because he was a worshiper of him.
Jack Shorb Contradictions in the Bible In the view of the Jewish faith, God is all knowing and omnipotent. Throughout the Bible contradictions are made with what role God plays in human’s decisions. In the story of Noah and the flood, God floods the world to wipe out everything except for a pair of every animal and human. If God is all knowing, he knew that the world he was creating was going to turn to a point where God would become frustrated enough to kill everyone. Why than did God create the world only to destroy it.
