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. Therefore the Prime Mover cannot be described as a craftsman. Another attribute of the Judeo Christian concept of god is that god is all loving and also that he interacts with his creation. This is seen in the Bible when miracles occur and also when god punishes the world.
Christianity Worldviews Origin-Genesis 1:1 shows God creating the heavens and the earth in the beginning. Christianity affirms that “God is the infinite, personal (triune), transcendent and immanent, omniscient, sovereign and good being who created the universe.” (James Sire, The Universe Next Door, p.23, 26). To say that God is infinite is to say that He is a necessary Being and there was never a time when God did not exist. God is transcendent in that He is not part of the creation, but separate from it. However, He is also immanent, in that He cares for His creation, enough to reveal Himself to mankind.
Above all other areas of dogma within Christianity, monotheism tops the list. Monotheism is the belief in one God who rules over all. This one God is the creator, and stabilizer of the universe we reside in. Christianity also believes in the Bible being the only set of scripture inspired by the word of God; Virgin Birth; martyrdom; the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; the second coming of Christ; the creation of the world through the one true God; life after death; Hell; Paradise after death; and the Holy Trinity. Above all of these dogmas, the faith in a one creator God who rules the universe is the most important.
Christians believe that we are living and moving because of God, if it was not for him we would not be here. An example given by Fr. Abraam D. Sleman is, “Adam is also called ‘the Son of God’ (Luke 3:38). ‘Adam’s father was God’ (Luke 3:38 TLB), as it is paraphrased in The Living Bible. Also, ‘the angels are sons of God’, (Job 1:6 NIV, TLB), in a sense that they are His creation.” (Sleman 12).
The principal beliefs of Christianity are highlighted in the Ten Commandments, the Nicene Creed, the Beatitudes and the Golden Rule. The principal beliefs of Christianity are influenced by Judaism. As a monotheistic religion, adherents believe there is strictly only one God, originating from the Jewish YHWH. Christians believe that God is the Trinity, meaning one being of three co-equal persons – the Father who is the creator and sustainer of all life, the Son who is the redeemer, and the Holy Spirit which is the sanctifier. Christians believe that God created the world and all that is in it.
Name: Rani B. Saliba Writing Style Used: APA Fifth Course and Section Number: Theo 201 – B16 Short Essay on Inspiration and Inerrancy of the Bible First we’ll discuss the authority of the bible; Authority is defined as “the right and power to command”. The authority of the bible comes from the fact that the fact that the bible is the physical result of God revelation of himself to mankind. In John 1:14 it says “14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Jesus is described as the word of god. And Mathew28:18 say “Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”.
God created the heavens and the earth as stated in the first chapter, first verse of the book of Genesis, found in the Old Testament. Genesis 1:27 also states that we as human beings, were created in God’s own likeness by him. We as Christian people are fully devoted the to the origin explanation found in Genesis and a few other books of the bible. Identity is a tough subject for many people as we have been given this earthly body as one identity, and our soul could be considered another identity. Christians, in order to move on to Heaven, need to make the two as one while keeping in the image of God.
Reading Report #1 (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). Primeval Period (Genesis 1-11) Genesis Author: Moses Date: 1450-1410 B.C. (NIV 2) Purpose: Genesis lays the foundation for understanding the rest of the Bible. It highlights the relationship between God and His creation. It also gives us a very monotheistic view of God to oppose the idea of many gods or that there is no God.
(Heb. 6:1 faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen. I would answer the Axiological question by saying, “God is the creator of the for universe.” Not only does he creates everything, he is everything. So that means because God is of value, we are of value too.We have to always keep God center. (Exodus 20:3 You shall have no other Gods me.)
Worldview Assignment Part One: What is a worldview? A worldview is the essence of our being, the very core of who we are in relation to our emotions, desires, and the decisions we make. It also helps us determine how we see the world around us and the events that happen in it (Weider and Gutierrez 59). Part Two – One: The Question of Origin The biblical/Christian Worldview believes that mankind, the universe and everything in it was created by God, with humans being created from God’s image. They also believe that all members of the Trinity “played a role in creation of the universe and mankind” (Weider and Gutierrez 65).
