Conclusion “The Lamb” is a Christian poem written by William Blake that utilizes a lamb to symbolize and explain how God created everything in the universe.
Blake reminds the reader that Christ has provided everything from food to clothing to life in general. “The Lamb” was meant to spark a renewal in one’s religious beliefs. In addition, the idea of simplicity and purity in thought is evident in the structure of “The Lamb.” Not only is the poem short in length, but it also makes use of simple word choices. In comparison to “The Lamb” which promotes total faith and devotion to God, William Blake’s poem “The Tyger” focuses on the ideas of religion and creationism versus nature in a more questioning light. “The Lamb” presents creation in a simplistic light of all things being made by God, where as “The Tyger” seeks to understand the motivation behind creation.
Christianity has organised its principal beliefs into a structured systematic theology in which it draws its sacred writings and traditions from. These principal beliefs include the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ, the death and resurrection, the Trinity, revelation and salvation. Through the ethical and moral teachings of Christianity and characteristics of religions which consist of sacred texts and writings, rituals and ceremonies, beliefs and believers and ethics; these beliefs can be expressed and connected with the life of adherent’s. The divinity and humanity beliefs identify that Jesus Christ was both fully divine and human, and that he is the second being of the trinity. This intended that he was the divine Son of God and recognised as being ‘one with the Father’.
Adherents believe meaning can be found in their response to evil and suffering. A principal belief of Christianity is that God sent his only son, Jesus Christ, as a human to model how to be truly human and to reach full potential as an adherent. Adherents believe Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary through the Immaculate Conception after Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to bring her the news. It is believed Jesus Christ was sacrificed through his crucifixion to save adherents from their sins, and
I know this is true because it says so in the Bible. I believe the Bible is the word of God, given to man, and written into a book. My view on this is the same as Billy’s view on the nature of God. Billy said “The Bible is a book of Redemption, and of course I accept the Creation story. I believe that God did create the universe.” (Letters to Creationist, 2010).
Methods of Evangelism Joshua D Brown Liberty University Online Evangelical Method 1: The Romans Road Summary of Method – The Romans Road is potentially a very effective method of leading someone to Christ. Following a selection of verses from the Book of Romans, the evangelist can take the intellectual approach towards leading the broken to their Savior. Much like any road in life, the Romans Road has a beginning and moves toward a destination in a methodical and systematic way. At the beginning, in Romans 3:23 and 3:10, we learn that all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory and that none among us is righteous. This is where we (or the individual(s) you are ministering too admits they are a sinner.
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.
Donne’s opinion leans more towards the thought of every man needs one another to survive which makes each individual man represent one part of a whole as Donne states. This is also a very religious point of view representing the Christian lifestyle. Christians are very fond of believing that we are all as one and this is shown in Giotto’s Crucifix which shows Jesus, the only son of God sent to save God’s people and rid them of sin, as he is crucified on the cross for the better of his father’s children. With us as God’s children we as man represent one family made up of each individual on earth. Samuel Menashe’s poem “Adam Means Earth,” he uses Adam the first human sent to earth to show that he is the beginnings of our existence on earth sent by God.
Also, ‘the angels are sons of God’, (Job 1:6 NIV, TLB), in a sense that they are His creation.” (Sleman 12). After “God the Father,” there is “God the son,” meaning Jesus Christ is God’s son and also, a representation of God himself. Christians believe if they believe in the “son of God,” then they believe in God as a whole. Lastly, there is “God the Holy Spirit,” which is the power of God. Christians see that God gives life and he lives through His own spirit.
The first example in this passage is actually two parallel power struggles, one bwtween Hassan and Assef, and one between the Mullah and the lamb. Amir compares Hassan’s facial expression to that of a lamb in “[I] saw the resignation in [his face]. It was a look I had seen before. It was the look of the lamb.”(76) That lamb is later explained, through Amir’s flashback, to be a ceremonial sacrifice made on Eid Al-Adha. The lamb here, just like almost every other time a lamb has been used in literature, symbolizes Jesus, innocence, and sacrifice.
