It guides them to make the correct ethical decisions in life fulfilling their role as Christians. Ethics is the decision between right and wrong influenced heavily by beliefs and responsibilities of an adherent. Through the Bible, teachings by Jesus through parables such as the ‘Good Samaritan’ educate them on the way they should behave in everyday situations. In this parable, a man is neglected by a priest and a Levite but is helped by a Samaritan, a person who was disliked in that time. It shows Christians that they should help everyone who is in need, leaving no one behind.
Romans 15:4 “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” And so the more we know the Bible, the more God will encourage us in the difficult experiences of life. Let us therefore keep on working on the Word of God and to establish our hearts so that we will be able to stay firm and steadfast no matter how trying the circumstances may
Dimmesdale chose to conform to society and be what they wanted him to be. Rev. Dimmesdale’s parishoners viewed him as holy and as a messenger from God himself (Hawthorne 130). Dimmesdale knew that he was not worthy of being held at such a high societal standard yet he allowed himself to be placed on that pedestal. Throughout the course of the novel Rev.
Spiritual gifts according to Dr. Elmer Towns are described as being “from the Holy Spirit, they are bestowed to all believers, for use in Christian service, spiritual abilities discovered when in proper relationship, and to be exercised by us.” Gifts are given to us by the Holy Spirit, to be used for the common good, that the church may be edified. When people are using spiritual gifts in ministry or to evangelize, the results are such that the individual cannot take credit for them. If you are working in your own power, there will be nothing supernatural about your works, When someone is working under the power of the spirit, it is spirit that has ability, not the human, this is evident in the works. Most people believe that spiritual gifts are received at the time of conversion; some believe that they are received at birth, either way; they can lie dormant to be developed at a later time. The number of gifts a person receives can differ from person to person and can grow as faithfulness is exercised.
Be at peace among yourselves.”) what God is trying to teach us about respect towards others. We cannot just sit there and disrespect others due to their imperfections, for every single one of us has imperfections but yet have great respected qualities that differ from one person to another. In the healthcare management field one must be able to respect opinions of those above you as well as the opinions of those below you. Interactions with other administrators, chief executive directors, and co-workers must be done without vain glorying oneself. The bible teaches us this in Philippians 2:3 (“Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves”).
Paul encouraged Timothy to be a faithful soldier, his counsel was to be ready and protected. Wiersbe suggests that before one stands one must first bow before the Lord in prayer and worship, then this one may put on the armor of God. The armor of God is one of the most prominent dressings of a Christian. This is a personal opinion, trying to consider a son going into battle with the enemy and not being fully dressed out for battle seems nonsensical to the mind. Mr. Wiersbe gives three responsibilities, knowing the enemy, use the equipment and trust in the Lord and the energy He provides for the battle.
By keeping their hair, sikhs are respecting their God as they believe that human hair is a creation of God and they should respect God's gift. The uncut long hair was created by the Guru which is the leader in sikhism. Due to the guru spent all of his time on studying theology and using his knowledge to illuminate sikhs he didn't have time to shave his beard or cut his hair. After a hundred years, unshaven hair became a symbol of the Sikh people which is protected by the spiritual crown--the turban. KANGHA: As the sikh are supposed to keep the kesh, they have to keep it tidy.
In other words, we each add a different part to the song called life and it is therefore important that we stick to what God has called us to do and strive to be in unity with one another. What this means is that in God’s kingdom, there is no division. This is the concept that Jesus taught His listeners. In his day, just like today; there was much theological division and the people wanted to live according to their own standards. We must strive to live in unity and live out God’s
Entwistle’s book assists individuals in growing academically, mentally and most importantly spiritually. I highly recommend Entwistle’s book to everyone interested in learning about the integration of psychology and theology. Application Entwistle’s book discusses public and personal integration for Christian clinicians. Entwistle believes public and personal integration should have reasonable boundaries, making payment arrangements ethically and respecting all (Entwistle, 2015). Entwistle also points out that a clinician should not ignore health or families due to the pursuit of success or financial gain (Entwistle, 2015).
In addition, they believe that prayer is also the best way as it has no bad consequences such as other ways of dealing with suffering, such as alcohol and drugs are far worse. Moreover a quote from the Bible itself states that one should use prayer to deal with one's suffering: (1 Peter 5:7) "Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you." This quote says that Christians should deal with all their suffering by praying to God and unloading all their anxieties onto God. This would be quite a personal interaction. However you can’t be given an answer or told what do, if prayers are answered in a way that we don’t expect then we will not see them as being answered, there are ways in which you can deal with suffering without having to pray.
