Differing worldviews will ask and answer variations of these questions. As Christians we take the questions further and seek to know and understand the God that created us and how He reveals Himself to us as well as what He has revealed about Himself. Revelation is the Christian notion that “God chooses to be known” (McGrath, 2011, p. 152), it is the “unveiling or uncovering of who God is, who we are as human beings, and how God interacts with and in our world” (Lecture 2, GCU).

Liberty University | THE KINGDOM OF GOD | ONE THOUSAND YEAR MILLENIAL REIGN | A RESEARCH PAPER SUBMITTED TO PROFESSORGEORGE SMITHIN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR BIBLE 450BY | SUSAN SMITH | 5/14/2011 | THE KINGDOM OF GOD This work will seek to examine the various views of the Millennial Kingdom, the literal teachings of its nature, government, inhabitants, and relationship to the ancient prophecies concerning Israel. A correct view of the Kingdom is, in this writer’s opinion, very significant because no other doctrine has had such a profound effect on the Christian mindset concerning the continuing role of Israel in prophecy.

Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Cynthia Warren Liberty University Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Summary Entwistle’s goal of this book is to inform the reader that there are two different books of God: His word and His works (Enwistle, 2010, p. 26). The Bible states, Jesus and His disciples used integration to perform God’s work. As in 2 Timothy 3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. The book is filled with information that provides an explanation of the relationship between psychology (God’s works) and theology (God’s words). He uses the ancient cities of Athens and Jerusalem to show how the cultural differences between the two are used to display the theme of integration.
Platt Reading Report Introduction David Platt, the author of “Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream”, presents a unique and compelling read that brings to light the current phenomenon that has overtaken the modern church; manipulation of the gospel. He highlights the tenets of Christ’s original message to the disciples, and prods the believer to participate in the “Radical Experiment”; to travel through a transformation into authentic discipleship. The modern believer is encouraged to commit to an in depth examination of their heart and mind in an effort to produce a radical revitalization of their commitment to Christ. The overarching theme of the writings is rejection of the common view of the world, and trust in Christ to lead the believer into the truth of the God-centered gospel. He shares insight into leading a purposeful life that begins with abandoning “self” to Jesus Christ, our Savior.
The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit in John: The Holy Spirit in John’s gospel NBST 655 Vernon L Langley Liberty University Online Dr. Wayne Cornett May 3, 2012 Thesis statement: John's religious study of the Holy Spirit stands on subject matter found in Old Testament eschatological text, topics that are shared with the rest of the New Testament, particularly in the books of Luke and Acts, whilst one study the subject matter of Jesus’ baptism of believers with the Holy Spirit. The Spirit's possess a rejuvenating work as He integrates followers into the Gods Kingdom. Introduction: The Gospel of John is unmistakably reasonably unlike the Synoptic Gospels in its production of the Son of God, even though all of the Synoptic Gospels has its individual arrangement of Jesus; it can be said that the management of the Holy Spirit in John’s gospel is special, from that of any other text. Separately from the first reference of the Spirit in John 1:, each statement relating to the Holy Spirit comes from the mouth of Jesus Himself, while there is the commentary of the Evangelist on the words of Jesus in John 7: 39. Otherwise the author of the fourth gospel devotedly makes a replica of the main articles of the custom of Jewish eschatology production of God's Holy Spirit.

Thesis I would argue that the Emerging Church theology is not the answer for postmodern America because it focuses on the journey of life and not about God’s ultimate plan which leads a teaching of moral relativism and absolute truth and denial of basic Christian doctrine. The Christian Life as a
Lastly, we should apply the modified universal principle to modern day life. Furthermore, Hays argues two approaches Christians can take in interpreting and applying the Law. The traditional approach is a way of interpreting and applying the Law. Using this approach Hays suggest that Christian readers should pay attention to the moral laws but can neglect the civil and ceremonial laws. One issue with this is that distinguishing three types of law can be illogical.
Write an essay (750-1,000 words) that critically evaluates evangelical theology in terms of the assertion of Grenz and Olson. Your essay should explore God's transcendence and immanence in relation to the evangelical theology. Stanley Grenz and Roger Olsen co-authored of “The 20th Century Theology” – God and the World in a Transitional Age (1992)). Within the boundaries of these pages one is provided the interpretations of various forms of theology, while sharing a religious viewpoint as the development of modern -age is viewed through a divine state of grace and immanence, illuminating the primary view of the Evangelical Theories.
