Evidential Apologetic also called Natural Theology emphasizes reason and rational truth and logic as the reasons why a person faith must exist in Christianity. The epistemological questions that come forth in ordinary religious life tend to focus on the epistemic evaluation of the most basic tenets of the religious worldview in question; the existence of God, the creation of the world and God's relation to it, and the possibility of recognizing divine action in the world and divine revelation. An Evidentialist defense of religion typically relies

Some even minimize His importance by relegating Him to an undefined characteristic of “God”. As the most cryptic member of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is not an optional part of the tri-unity of God, but He is an integral, essential member in terms of His relationship to God the Father, God the Son, and humanity. To that end, this research is organized chronologically by the primary supporting passage for each facet of the definition of the Holy Spirit. Supporting passages are added for each section where there is supporting evidence.
Research Question: Compare and contrast the Christian views of salvation versus the Islam views of salvation. With much candour and respect given to religion and the study of religion, over the years, humankind has searched for the need to belong and be a part of something big. Salvation is that which has brought the commencement of such an activity. The word salvation is one taken from the Latin word salvatio; the Greek word sōtēria and the Hebrew yeshu'ah. The significant connection in all three words is in its meaning, which the Oxford Dictionary has defined thoroughly, “preservation or deliverance from harm, ruin, or loss; deliverance from sin and its consequences.” The essence therefore is to be saved, salvaged, or redeemed.
The religion I chose to examine that is significantly different than my own is that of the Jehovah’s Witness. This religion is classified as a restorationist, millenarian, Christian movement (Fawcett, 2010.) Furthermore, it has been categorized as a religious group among the Adventist sect by various sociologists who study organized religions. It has a long history and went under various structural changes throughout this time. Founded by Charles Taze Russell in the later part of the 19th century, the Jehovah’s Witness religion was derived from the Bible Student movement.

A 4-MATT Review: Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Jacqueline Wilkerson Liberty University A 4-MATT Review: Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Summary The author commits to integrating Christianity and Psychology. He informs us that earlier Christian colleges used only the Bible college model of emphasizing religious instruction rather than any other forms of learning (Entwistile, 2010). Other Christian colleges chose to teach secular subjects and maintain a core Bible and religious studies requirement for their students (Entwilstel, 2010). At the same time, Christian liberal-arts colleges formed the curriculum of integrating secular and religious studies to allow the student to get an education full in secular and religious information. Quite a few approaches have been used to identify the connection between psychology and Christianity.
The Kingdom of God is like… Laureen M. Warner Grand Canyon University BIB 105 July 11, 2012 Laureen M. Warner BIB 105 New Testament July 11, 2012 Professor Joseph Roach The Kingdom of God is like a Promise The Book of Luke in the Bible records many parables that Jesus told about discipleship and the Kingdom Of God. Much of Jesus teachings were done in parables. The metaphors that were used in these stories reflected the day and age of their use. In Kim Tame’s article, The Kingdom of God is like this, the use of a metaphor for the Kingdom of God was explored by church congregations. The Congregants were challenged to come up with some of their own metaphors to describe and illustrate from everyday life how God feels about us, and what God’s kingdom is like (Tame K, 2005).
