I believe that God tells us what is right and what is wrong in the Ten Commandments. I also believe that not everyone has the same beliefs as I do. Therefore, there right and wrong is completely different from mine. Every life has a purpose from a Christian standpoint. Not everyone believes that, some believe that there is no purpose, that they are here just to fill up the earth and that when they die that is it, no life after death.
It says “For God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” This verse basically says the same thing as John chapter three. That we are all sinners and Christ came into the world to forgive our sins. Another example is second Corinthians chapter five. It says “God made Him who had no sin to be sin, or be a sin offering for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God.” Have you ever heard the Ten Commandments? If not, here they
Marlowe proves that refusing “Sola Scriptura”, a Protestantism belief, will pull people from God by the description of Faustus’ desire for magic knowledge, misinterpretation of the Bible and the resulting ending. “Sola Scriptura” includes four ideas, which are necessity, sufficiency, inerrancy and clarity. It states that people can be saved and go to heaven by the Bible alone. Faustus ignores some of these ideas so that he is damned to hell at the end. Faustus has read the Bible, at least some parts of it.
All Christians must be able to give a defense for the hope that is in them, so that the truth will be upheld in every circumstance. The New Apostolic Reformation The teachings of the NAR (New Apostolic Reformation) are nothing new they have been around before the 1950’s, which scholars believe connect to the “Latter Rain Movement”. Many of the leaders in NAR were involved with the “Latter Rain” movement such as, C. Peter Wagner, Bob Jones, and Rick Joyner, just to name a few. The Assemblies of God actually refuted this movement in 1949. “Satan sold them the lie that "unity" is the principal thing and thus they dethroned and eventually jettisoned purity and truth.
It starts with Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” The reason it begins with this is because the first step to anybody’s conversion is going to be them realizing the sin in their life. They need to know that all have sinned. After this we move on to Romans 5:8 which says, “But God commendeth His love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” This is a critical point in the conversation. It is imperative that the lost person understands that Jesus loves them enough to die for them. They must understand the significance of the cross, and that Jesus loves all
This is what the word mystery means today. But, that’s not exactly what Paul means by the word mystery here in this text. Paul, uses this word to express something beyond natural knowledge, but has been opened to us by divine revelation through the Holy Spirit. This means that we could not understand it on our own, until God revealed it to us. Colossians 1: 24-27(Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake
The most solid basis for the inerrancy of Scripture can be found in the claims of the Bible itself. Because the Bible is inspired, one must believe that it is inerrant. The idea of Godly inspiration is not a humanly created concept but rather the Bible teaches that Scriptures are the breath of God (2 Tim. 3:16). It also worth mentioning that Jesus spoke of the Scriptures by stating that heaven and earth would pass away before the smallest detail of the law fails to be fulfilled (Matt.
“Homosexuality is wrong” Some people who have anti-homosexual views think that Homosexuality ‘injures society, especially children’. They think this because they say that it teaches ‘vulnerable’ children that same sex relationships are good and moral. They say that the bible condemns this behaviour, and medical professionals have affirmed that same sex relationships are ‘unhealthy’. These people are usually conservative Christians who believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and that when Jesus said that “if anyone causes one of these little ones to stumble, it would be better if he put a mill stone around his neck and throw himself into the sea means that people who tell Children that gay relationships are ok should kill themselves. Liberal Christians often say that the bible teaches us compassion as a general truth in the bible and that being compassionate to gay’s means that we should grant full moral and legal equality to people of different sexualities to ourselves.
Question 2 “Neither lofty words nor careful reasonings can answer our questions about suffering so well as the lived example of Jesus.” (CN p24) Discuss this statement in the light of the Christian perspective /Christian view’s on human suffering. (CN pp19-24) We are reminded when we see a crucifix that Jesus suffered. Scripture tells us that God did not want to inflict suffering and death on his son. God did not will the crucifixion of Jesus as it was human beings who were acting in direct opposition to God’s will []. Despite our failings, God will always love all people because they are part of God.
Matt Mulcahy Jonathan Edward’s “In The hands of an Angry God” In Jonathan Edwards' "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God" vivid imagery is utilized through pathos and ethos, in an attempt to sway the acts of sinners to be morally correct. He used all three of the most influential advertisement skills and persuasive skills, to deliver an observation and solution. In Edwards’s sermon, the target of the speech is to bring people to repentance by understanding that the only reason this world is still turning is because of God’s Grace, and the sinners are angering God. Edwards keeps his statements about God positive even it’s while acting in an offensive way. For instance, instead of saying God punishes those who doubt his existence instead he says that God simply won’t hold them up when they are in slippery situations and the misery will come on its own without his helping hand.
