In detail we will discuss the relationship between inspiration and inerrancy. And then, before concluding this paper we will discuss how the answers to these questions provide structure to how we as Christians should live our lives. To a Christian who has accepted God as their personal Lord and Savior the Bible has authority. The same should not be said for someone who hasn’t made that confession. As a Christian we have accepted that the Bible contains the true Word of God written by apostles who received divine inspiration to guide the recorded works.
Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary Evidentialist Apologetic Method Analysis A Paper Submitted to Dr. John Durden In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Course Introduction to Apologetics APOL 500 By Roy D. Thomas L22758923 3 June 2012 Evidentialist Apologetic Method Summary 1 Peter 3:15 states; But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. According to Caner; the ultimate goal in Apologetics is to defend Christianity in the context of an unbelieving and skeptical world either by presenting evidence and arguments of the exclusive claims to Christianity or by examining the truths and claims of other religions and pointing out any errors in relation to Christianity. The following examines the Evidentialist Apologetic method by providing the reader with a summary and critique of the method; as well as introducing the readers to those important figures who have applied the evidentialist apologetic method in defense of their Christian faith. Evidentialisism is a view of epistemology with relation to the justification of beliefs; to that end an evidentialist apologetic method would rest on the evidence of the existence of God as the foundation of their argument. Evidential Apologetic also called Natural Theology emphasizes reason and rational truth and logic as the reasons why a person faith must exist in Christianity.
Trinitarian theology is essential to the evangelic mind. We find the theme of Father, Son, and Spirit woven throughout our various Christian theologies in a masterful way. But what of the Atonement of Jesus Christ for the sins of the world? Where do we see the Trinity in God’s beautiful conclusion to his much larger redemptive story? The evangelic community seems silent when it comes to this region of theology and the Trinity.
He prayed for them and told them to guide his father in the afterlife. He mostly prayed for Mars, the god of war, before going to war. Leonardo was really angry and wanted to get revenge from Jughurta. He was rejected from the senate. Only the senate had authority to
They believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that God sent His only Son (Jesus) to earth to save humankind from the penalty of their sins. One of the most important concepts in Christianity is that Jesus gave His life on the cross which was called the crucifixion, and then He was buried, and on the third day He rose from the dead which is called the resurrection. This is summarized in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 which is the foundation of Christian belief. Exclusive among all the faiths, Christianity is more about having a relationship with God than religions practices. The goal of a Christian is to develop a close relationship with God through (Word of God) the ministry of Jesus Christ and by the aid of the Holy Spirit.
A THEOLOGY OF MISSIONS ________________ A Paper Presented to Dr. Jeff Brawner Liberty University _____________ In partial fulfillment Of the requirements of GLST 500 __________ By Jessica A. Bode April 7, 2014 TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction 1 Old Testament Examples of Missions 1-2 New Testament Examples of Missions 3-4 The Nature of God and Missions 4-5 Mission Theology Relates to Ecclesiology and Pnuematology 5-7 Key Themes of Mission Theology 8-10 Missions Relationships 11-13 Bibliography 14 Introduction “Missions” is the concept that man can work in conjunction with God to accomplish the business of rescuing and freeing others from the chains of sin. In order to understand how the theology of Mission relates to global missions it is helpful to see how missions has been encountered in other areas such as the Old and New Testament as well as other theologies such as Ecclesiology and Pneumatology. In addition to exploring how “missions” theology relates to these other aspects of theology, this paper will attempt to discuss how it relates to the missionary, church leaders and others not in the full-time ministry. Old Testament Central to what is referred to in theological circles as “Missio Dei” or Mission of God is the idea that “God is one who initiates and sustains mission.” And from the beginning pages of the Bible, it is easy to see that God had a specific purpose in mind.
His name is jesus and he is the creator, who revealed his word to man. All prayers are answered by him and due to him, a future life and the doctrine of resurrection is maintained. According to christianity god is one in nature, but there 3 persons constituting the Holy Trinity; that is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Islam proclaims Allah, the one god, who is sovreign and good, who also answers prayers, who works with both mankind in history calling prophets to proclaim God’s work. Islam offers two choices for mankind in each field.
What Defines a Father? by Kurt Bruner The Christian faith acknowledges Jesus Christ as the one and only Son of God. Yet Jesus taught His disciples to address God as "our Father in heaven." Since Jesus is the only Son of God, why did He invite us all to call God "Father"? Obviously, Jesus holds a unique position as God incarnate, the second person of the Holy Trinity.
Church Model Analysis 1 Williestine Harriel Liberty University Dr. Andy Wood July 14, 2013 In Tom Rainer & Eric Geiger’s book, Simple Church, chapter 5-8 discuss the process of becoming a simple church and suggests that the four steps process of becoming a Simple Church can help the leaders to be successful in building a simple church. Also, the success depends on the completion of one step that leads to another step. To follow these four steps systematically would result in the creation of the kingdom of God according to Rainer and Geiger. In the first steps, clarity, according to the authors’ data, it means coming up with plans that works. In addition, Rainer and Geiger discuss clarity as ways to decide the themes and philosophy in which church to be built.
Many believers do not count the cost of following Christ. One is told to accept the free gift of eternal life, repent of sins, join a church, and then learn to do the best one can concerning all the rest. One is usually not told about the cost of being a Christ-follower, nor does one have much of an idea of what God expects of them now that they are saved. Stewardship is entirely based on the first commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” (Holy Bible, NIV, Mat 22:37). Stewardship is the product of one’s new worldview that is brought about by one’s conversion.
