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
Beginning in chapter 12 Paul discussed how Christians are to live. In Romans 12:1 Paul urges the Christians: “in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.” Paul continuously reminds the people to live above reproach and renew their minds so that they do not become part of the world. In the entire book of Romans Paul discusses the topic of how we as Christians should live, but Moo makes a great point in our book of how chapter 12 is a more in depth teaching on this matter. Moo states that "All theology is practical, and all practice, if it is truly Christian, is theological. Paul's gospel is deeply theological, but it is also eminently practical.
Because the Prime Mover existed he set of a chain of reactions which caused the world into existence. The Prime mover caused the movement of the cause and effect chain however the Prime Mover itself did not move as it was not subject to cause and effect.

The universal uniqueness, of the Jews remained and stands that they are the selected people of God, therefore, as such that they are bound to a greater standard under the law. ” By works of the law no human being will be justified in His sight” (Piper,
One can never be free from sin. The only thing God request from his believers is “Faith” because we have fallen short of his glory. How is one transformed in Christianity? Transformation in Christianity begins through accepting Christ as your savior. Then be baptized.
According to Luther, a strong faith is the foundation and necessity for a good Christian life. Luther defines a true Christian as “a spiritual, new, and inward man.” Luther makes it clear that no outward or bodily actions are connected with the “liberty or the slavery of the soul.” No evil bodily or external works will injure the soul. Nor will any pure external actions or works save the soul. The most important thing for Christian salvation is the Bible, or as Luther refers to it, “the most holy word of God, the Gospel of Christ.” In order for the soul to be saved, we need the word of God, nothing more. In order to receive salvation, one must have faith in the word of God and “preach Christ”.
