If you believe in god and you participate in sinning you will be punished when you go to heaven but you wouldn’t be considered one going to hell. In 2 edwards states, “Yea, on the contrary, justice calls aloud for an infinite punishment of their sins. (Edwards 2) What Edwards is really trying to say in this quote is that on justice day god will know what you have done in life and in what situations you have sinned in. But if you do sin it doesn’t mean you’re a person from hell. God will always be open to hear your prayers and the problems that you need help
Megan’s Talk 7-13 Obedience I am going to start out with a scripture from D&C 93:24, 26-28. It says, “The spirit of truth is of God, and no man can receiveth the fullness unless he keepeth his commandments. He that keepeth God’s commandments recieveth truth and light, until he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things.” Our Heavenly father has given us the commandments to guide us and to protect us. Being obedient is doing God’s will. He knows what is best for us and he doesn’t want us to get hurt, so obeying His commandments will save us a lot of grief in the long run.
Things that should guide people towards repentance could potentially keep their focus looking inside themselves. Once a person can truthfully see how sinful their thoughts and lives are, it can and will hopefully lead them to depend on God. While Crabb is relying on God for answers, Rogerian theory states that “no other human being can possibly determine what the correct or incorrect behavior is for any other individual. Because of this, Kensit says that therapists must keep this in mind and use non-directive but yet supportive therapy. (Kensit, 2000).
One of God’s greatest desires is to have relationship with His creation, man. He wants nothing more than to be loved and believed. Our love and belief is demonstrated through worship and godly lifestyle. Many people have a form of worship, but with no substance or true understanding of what it is all about. Many minimizes worship simply as the singing of songs, or leaving it up to the worship team to “set the atmosphere”, without any participation from the congregation.
I believe our generation subjects themselves to staying neutral on controversial topics. Even in our classroom, many classmates refuse to express their questions, opinions, on conversations said in our class. While I may disagree with his theological expressions and usage, he articulates alternative theology through many real life examples corrects bad theology. Answering the question on how one can correct bad theology, he
His contemporaries consisted of Ahab, Jezebel, Ahaziah, Obadiah, Jehu, and Hazal. These were the people that Elijah was in constant contact with because God had a message for them. Elijah was a man of ‘many hats’, as we like to say, but he carried the message of God to people who many times did not want to hear what he had to say, in order to warn them about the things that were forthcoming. Like any human being, Elijah made mistakes, had flaws, and also lasted through his good times as well as his bad times. But what type of prophet was Elijah?
McCloskey contended against the three mystical verifications, which are the cosmological argument, the argument from design and the teleological argument. He called attention to the presence of evil on the planet that God made. He likewise called attention to that it is irrational to live by trust or faith. As indicated by McCloskey, confirmations do not essentially assume a fundamental part in the conviction of God. Page 62 of the article expresses that "most theists do not come to have faith in God as a premise for religious conviction, however come to religion as a consequence of different reasons and variables."
Though naïve as he is, this only leads to suffering. Ironically this is foreshadowed at the beginning by his own advice. “I seek for knowledge…I hope yours may not be a serpent as mine had been.” Not fit for the role of god victor is disgusted by the being he has created
By nature people are afraid of the unknown, and when something changes people assume the worst even with just an appearance. Just like in the story people don’t go directly to the person to ask them why, but just to sneer and make rumors. Where do we learn not to directly approach a person if something is odd about them? We all do it, even I do it. Even if its family we don’t ask, just assume.
We are not allowed to choose what we like to worship and rejected what we do not like. We cannot just worship God for what he has done but also for what he will do. The ideal state of worship is to be close to Isaiah like he was in chapter six of that book of the Bible. When we are lost we need to seek (and hope to find) the holiness of God and become aware of our sin in order to truly worship. Instead of going through the motions at church, we need to truly focus on what we are worshiping.
