This doctrine was rejected by orthodox Christians. Arianism is the belief that Jesus is superior to the rest of creation but is less divine than God, this making Jesus not actually God. The death and resurrection of Jesus has key beliefs within it. These include that Jesus died for our sins, the reflections on the death of Jesus, the belief of the resurrection is a fundamental tenet of Christianity and the nature of risen Jesus. The belief that Jesus died on the cross for our sins was initiated as Jesus promoted he was sent to Earth by God to save humankind.
One of Jesus’ most significant miracles is the calming of the storm. This is so significant in my opinion because early Jews believed that only God had control of the elements but it was believed that because Jesus calmed the storm, he clearly has a connection with God. Another character from the documentary is Saint Paul. He was sent by the heads of the Jewish religion to kill all Christians but whilst doing so he witnessed a blinding vision of the risen Jesus. Therefore he converted to Christianity and preached the word of the Lord to the people of his time.
He mentions how he persecuted God’s church. He tells the Galatians that he was deeply committed to the Jewish faith, and zealous of their traditions. But God, who controls physical birth as well as spiritual birth, called Paul to a spiritual awakening. God provided Paul with the opportunity to accept grace, and then called him to preach and teach among the non-Jewish population. Paul says that he did not wait for human confirmation of this calling.
October 13, 2011 Holy Spirit Journal Assignment 5 Acts Acts has been called "The Acts of the Apostles", ”The Acts of the Church" and “The Acts of the Holy Spirit”. There is truth in each title. The Holy Spirit acted upon the lives of the Apostles and they acted upon the lives of the people of Israel. The Spirit saved Paul and used him to impact the world. But the first "Act" was that of Jesus Christ, which we see in Acts 1:4-5: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.
Pope Urban II Speech November 27th 1095 became an important day in history when Pope Urban II gave a speech to fellow Christians which ultimately sparked the first crusade. The purpose of this address to the public was originated from Alexios I Komnenos, the Byzantine emperor who sent the Pope to get them aid as they were being attacked by the Seljuk Turks and take back Jerusalem from Muslims. Reading the four accounts by: Fulcher of Chartres, Robert the Monk, Balderic of Dol and Guibert of Nogent, one could see that the main similarity in all versions was the reference to religion and how to serve God, “Freshly quickened by the divine correction, you must apply the strength of your righteousness to another matter which concerns you as well as God.”(Fulcher Of Chartres) Pope Urban II calls for help by referring to God and religion to persuade the public to go on this crusade so all their sins are washed away. Versions of the speech show differences, each showing the mentality of what kind of crowd this address was given to. The account by Fulcher of Chartres shows more of a religious approach where the Pope opens his speech by saying what should be the characteristics of a person to be close to God and not face his wrath, “I hoped to find you as faithful and as zealous in the service of God as I had supposed you to be.” At this point of the speech the audience does not know the purpose of this talk.
Jesus Christ is said to be the founder of Christianity and the miracle son of God. Jesus, the Son of God, was believed to be put on this earth by God to wash away our sins. The Bible is the sacred text of Christians that provide guidelines on moral beliefs and behaviors. Recorded many years after Jesus death, The Bible
In Galatians 3:15-18, Paul argues that a new covenant does not void previously made promises of God. He uses the example of God’s covenant with Abraham. Paul asks his Jewish audience if since God also established a covenant with Moses, does it make the old covenant of Abraham irrelevant. “My point is this: the law: which came four hundred thirty years later does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to nullify the promise. For if the inheritance comes from the law, it no longer comes from the promise; but God granted it to Abraham through the promise2 With the new covenant formed by the coming and death of Jesus, Gentiles are now allowed to be saved and be justified just as the Jews were.
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.
Gandhi and Jesus Christ were determined to make a difference in the world and proclaim their message. Both Jesus and Gandhi changed the world immensely. Even though I believe Gandhi and Jesus shared many similarities, they also have multiple differences. The largest difference between Gandhi and Jesus is that one is the Son of God, while the other is a holy person who willingly changed the world. According to Christians, Jesus Christ is known as the Savior of the world, and the Son of God.
