God created human beings; He created the earth and everything in it. God’s characteristics are loving, caring, omnipresent, omnipotence, faithful, trustworthy, and promising. He is perfect in every way. The nature of the universe to me is God created this universe and everything in it. The trees, the birds, the fish, the weeds that we all hate dealing with.
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.
God promised that Abraham will be the father of great nations and an everlasting covenant will establish with his descendant and Kings will come from him. For this very reason the Lord changed Abram’s name to Abraham which means father of many. The Mission was also considered outside Abraham’s offspring to include all human beings. God’s plan was not only to separate Abram from his family and blesses him lonely; but he wants Abraham to be a worldwide blessing through his descendants and his faith. The purpose God’s mission, therefore, was to start a plan by which to share his blessing with whole the world as an alternative of dealing every single nation individually.
The environment has only recently been recognised as a concern and thus placed on the agenda of Christian Churches with the use of environmental ethics. These ethics are a part of environmental philosophy which considers the ethical relationship between humans and the natural environment. Ethical teachings in Christianity are based on the three fundamental issues upon which the creation stories are based. These teachings have been derived from biblical traditions highlighting the fact that God is the creator of all things, what God created was good and that human beings have stewardship and responsibility over these creations. It is therefore believed that humans must work in conjunction with God to ensure that the fragile environment is nurtured and protected.
At first I thought this issue is merely cultural, now however, I think it goes deeper; this is a creation issue. In the Garden of Eden God made everything and it was good. The God told Adam to “take care” of the Garden (Gen. 2:15), Adam’s family was to “take care” of the earth. God wanted them both to use and to preserve. But Adam’s family had to remember that they were made of dust.
This means justice is love distributed but can’t be separated from each other. Fletcher writes, ‘Justice is Christian love using its head, calculating it’s duties, obligations, opportunities and reasons. Justice is love coping with situations, where distribution is called for, ‘For’ justice is love at work in the whole community, for the whole community. Fletcher’s fourth fundamental principle is “Love wills the neighbours well, whether we like him or not’. This relates to the love that Fletcher is concerned about isn’t a matter of feeling, but of attitude of the will towards the other person and desire for the good of other people.
A good god would not punish his people God gives us rules and regulations as an act of love and concern for humanity as he wants to guide us to live our lives in a good way. In the same way a concerned parent sets down rules for their child and punishes them if they disobey them, God also punishes his creations if they disobey his rules so they learn from their mistakes and never do it again yet he rewards those so they know when do to right. In conclusion I believe that a God that would
He still controls the rising and setting of the sun, the direction of the wind – the forces of nature are under His control, and He does with them what He pleases. There has also been the question as to whether God is active in His creation today, separate and apart from scripture. Well the answer is a LOUD YES! “The Lord holds all things together.” (Colossians 1:17) Today, science has put a great deal of stress on mankind that we were causing destruction to the plant by
Priestly version of the creation of humanity, started talking about what God said when was creating the man “Let us make man in our image.” Organization is the language in this story because everything was created by God’s voice. As well, God is an active character, but he is not physically present in the story. In this version, God created man and woman at the same time “God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created them.” In this story man and woman are equal and have the same power of subdue everything on earth. Also, when God created woman in this story she was named by him and has an original name given by her
God expresses his peace through creation, ‘for God is not a God of disorder but one of peace’ and adherents have to respect the environment on a global scale which means longstanding stances to ensure the sustainability of the environment to achieve world peace. A study of the New Testament literature reveals a distinct connection between the fidelity of the requirements of the Gospels and an individual’s sense of wellbeing and peace (shalom). Essentially that adherents find peace in and through living out their vocation as disciples of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ provides a role model on a global stage as an individual who s characterised by complete commitment to God and his teachings on peace, ‘I have told you these things so that in me you may have peace’ effectively enhances the concept of a ‘Christian community’ as adherents model their peacekeeping on his example as the ‘prince of peace’ the world is a more peaceful and compassionate community. By extension, the
