So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them”, Genesis 1:26-27. These verses clearly show us that we were created in the image of God, since the bible has clearly shown us that we were made after the likeness of God this then proves the theory of evolution by Charles Darwin to be wrong which suggest that man came from being baboons and later own they developed. According to Ellen G White in her book Patriarch and Prophets commenting on these two verses she says, “Here is no mystery, there is no ground for the supposition that man was evolved by slow degrees of development from the lower forms of animal or vegetables life. Such teachings lower the great work of the Creator to the level of man’s narrow, earthly
Romans 1:20 says “that the creation has been seen and understood because of God’s invisible qualities, divine nature and His eternal power so that men may not have an excuse.” It, therefore, follows that God is seen through His creation. He has made everything showing mercy to those who spit on His face that He is the same God that created everything by the power of His word. People who have seen His glory through His creation have no excuse before Him for they have seen and experienced yet rejected Him (Frank, 2013). Our Human Identity According to Paul, Christians should find their human identity in knowing Jesus and their true nature. Genesis 1:27 says “that we are made in God’s image” and according to Romans 7:25, “are joined to the father in spiritual union through Jesus Christ.”In Him, we find who we are because of the fellowship we have with Him.
This doctrine was rejected by orthodox Christians. Arianism is the belief that Jesus is superior to the rest of creation but is less divine than God, this making Jesus not actually God. The death and resurrection of Jesus has key beliefs within it. These include that Jesus died for our sins, the reflections on the death of Jesus, the belief of the resurrection is a fundamental tenet of Christianity and the nature of risen Jesus. The belief that Jesus died on the cross for our sins was initiated as Jesus promoted he was sent to Earth by God to save humankind.
Both stories have many similarities and also many differences. Many of the similarities pertain to God and the nature of God. There are also differences between the two creation stories such as the mention of the fall from grace in Genesis whereas the Leiden Hymns have no mention of this. Both the Leiden Hymns and Genesis are about the creation of the world. Both stories portray God as a perfect, all seeing, all knowing being, “God is a master craftsman… all powerful one”(1,7) “And Sarah dissembles, saying ‘I did not laugh,’ for she was afraid.
WHO IS JESUS CHRIST AND WHAT HIS MISSION TO THE WORLD It is generally accepted that Jesus was truly a man who walked on the earth in Israel 2000 years ago. The real debate begins when the subject of Jesus' full identity is discussed. C.S. Lewis in his book Mere Christianity writes :“I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him [Jesus Christ]: 'I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept his claim to be God.' Almost every major religion teaches that Jesus was a prophet or a good teacher or a godly man.
They had likewise hit bottom in their lives, and had a turning point and chose to follow Jesus Christ. At that point their lives changed and they had more stability and peace. Finally, the Bible itself is a proof that what Christians believe is true. The Bible is so remarkable that people have been convinced of its truth simply by reading it. For example, some have read the simple book of John in the New Testament and have been completely convinced that Jesus Christ is the one God of the universe, who made al l things and died for the sins of humans.
And this true relationship is one of the main advantages of being human – that we are “a little lower than God and crowned with glory and honor.” (Psalm 8:5) This is proven in John 14 because as Jesus, whose relationship with the Spirit is incomparable, talks of the Spirit, he uses the pronouns he and him – not it. The reason for us to develop our relationship with the Spirit is that he may be with us even more so than God or Jesus. I say this because we know that Jesus ascended into heaven to be with the Father, but the Spirit has been sent to us on earth by Jesus to be our comforter and our guide (John 14:16). He has three main jobs with the church: to teach us the truth, build the church, and help us spread God's love. The Spirit's job in regard to truth is to teach us unknown things about God, for just as no one knows are deep secrets of a person but that person's spirit, so can no one know God's secrets except his Spirit (1 Corinthians 2:11).
The creation of the world was a miracle and cannot be explained by scientist. Supernatural forces God contains can explain the act of creation. God can create and breathe life and be the designer of our souls. In the bible there is commentary and scriptures below provide proof that God created the universe. Key Bible verses such as: Hebrews 11:3, John 1:3, Romans 1:20, and Genesis 2:7, and.
Christians believed that the first humans were created in the image of God, but that the bad behavior of Adam and Eve brought negative consequences to all humans to this day. During the middle ages there were many holy wars that were aimed at defeating the enemy of Christ. The main reason why Christians fought was to protect the holy land. Fighting also gained them much more power. The Christians conquered lands that would be useful for them to make profit and help with trading.
Just as the church had a divine beginning, it also has a divine mission. The mission of the church is given to us to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Preaching the gospel is one mission of the church because the church is God’s body of believers, or change agents, to evangelize the world. Numerous New Testament passages indicate that the church is to preach the gospel. Jesus charged the apostles with proclaiming the gospel to all nations (Matt.
