In (Psalm 5:15) IT states that man is born a sinner and cannot save himself. You can only achieve salivation by the grace of God through faith in our Lord, not by ones work, only thru true salvation. (Ephesians 2:840) (2:8-10) 5) QUESTION OF DESTINY: It is thought that our ultimate disunity is in our communion with God. We find this in (John 15:1-6) those who are not connected with God are cast away, thus what happens after death is dependent on the choices we make in our personal lives, and our lives with God. In (Peter 3:15) we are ask to be prepared to give answers and to help those who ask for help but to do it with gentleness and
The philosopher Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) was one of the early founders of existentialism. Although Kierkegaard was a devout Christian, he rejected the Christian Church due to its legalistic nature and the false relationship that people were receiving with God as a result. Kierkegaard believed that the key relationship of an individual was with God. He argued that God has given people freedom to make their own decisions and therefore our decisions are not determined. He thought that our existence is not something determined rationally or part of an on-going process but that it is something specific which is created through the choices we make.
So, Augustine emphasized the grace of God in his theological writings. For example, Augustine says in his book, Answer to the Pelagians, “ Conversion Proves the Gratuity of Grace—For, if faith comes only from free choice and is not given by God, why do we pray that those who do not want to believe may come to believe? We would surely do this to no purpose if we were not perfectly correct in believing that almighty God can convert to the faith even perverse wills which are opposed to the faith.”  Augustine's path to conversion was long. He had sought about the wisdom for the salvation but he found finally grace in the only way to be saved. He found his salvation in one miraculous moment of divine intervention.
In this theory there are two forms known as the governmental and the satisfaction. The governmental contends that the work of Christ met the demands of the law and cause humans to desire a divine government making their forgiveness safe. The “satisfaction” contends it was to satisfy divine justice making forgiveness of humanity possible. The second is the remedial theory, where God, enters humanity by incarnation to eliminate sin through an ethical process of the life of Jesus and His death and making humans one with Him. Finally, the “Socinian” or moral influence, which claims that Jesus influences people to live better
Jesus came to this world Matthew 28:19 to tell us that we are free from sin, follow him, create other disciples and reign in the glory of God for eternity. Romans 3:23 says to follow the commandments, Mark 7:20-23 says to have good thoughts not to have immoral ones. Humans have morals built in them, they need to follow Jesus Christ and represent him. 5. The Question of Destiny- Christian’s belief that after death there is eternal Salvation through Jesus Christ or eternal damnation in hell.
Critically assess the view that the conscience is the voice of God Conscience is something that is intrinsic to our everyday lives. The origin and role of the conscience is something that divides people and something that has been used to justify some very terrible acts, approaches to conscience vary, including numerous religions who claim that it is God given. This is the belief that either at conception God gave each person a conscience or that it is imparted to us at some stage to enable us to discern morally correct and incorrect actions. For some philosophers it is the actual voice of God that speaks to them through their conscience. Newman was an Anglican theologian who supported the notion that conscience is truly the voice of God, and thus developed an intuitionist understanding of how we make ethical decisions.
Thomas More takes the side of the church and follows the idea that God judges the consciences of all, and if one is against God, then that person could be considered evil. “More went to his death as he said on the scaffold, “the king’s good servant and God’s first” ( Lahr). More believes that following God is the only way to go even if it resulted to death. More decides to stay true to his own beliefs and his own conscience based off of what is morally right under the law of God. This shows that in the Renaissance times, evil was viewed by what beliefs that people had in God, and the conscience and beliefs of the King are considered evil under what God laid down as
