“This is a court of law. The law is based upon the bible” Said Danforth (56). The court used God as an excuse to rectify his or her fears, so when the accused were tried in the court, no one was ever innocent. The accused either denied being a witch and were hung,
The Crusades were just that, however the name of the God in which the aggressors claimed they representatives was not allah but Jehovah. In the scripture the Lord Jesus warns of a day where this would be the motivation of men behind the violence that they would perpetrate. These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be made to stumble. They will put you out of the synagogues; yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service. And these things they will do to you because they have not known the Father nor Me.
Christ passes all the trials with the aid of the word of God, “Jesus answered, 'It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4). In this case Gods word was his supernatural helper. After replying the devil with the word of God the devil then flees from him and he is then taken care of by Angeles. “Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him"(Matthew 4:11). The devil is testing Christ’s strength but he manages to pass the tests from the devil.
Because of Adam and Eve disobeying God they lost their original righteousness (disposition to do right) which has traveled down through the generations all the way to you and me. To “counteract” our sinful nature we must go through justification. When we trust Christ and establish a true working relationship with God and he declares us righteous and we express this faith in God, this is justification. It’s not just saying the words and continuing as you were before, you must feel it in your heart and soul and with Christ’s help we can overcome sin and temptation. Romans 8:4, 5 states “in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
There is no need to be scared to go to heaven because heaven is a better and more peaceful place. I believe in this essay Jonathan Edwards tries to scare you to be afraid of the lord and it actually causes the feeling of the peaceful and loving god you believe in into someone to be scared of. If you believe in Christ you shouldn’t be afraid and later throughout my essay you will find out why. Everyone will be held through the same punishment in the time the lord shall come but it wouldn’t be anything dramatic. If you believe in him and read the bible correctly god
He lived His life sin free then died on the cross for our sins. We will have a better resurrection then any other religion will have. Another theme is Jesus is our great High Priest, he is superior to all other earthly priests, he is sinless and the Son of God and his teachings and way to follow is what others should strive to do to see the word of God and the light. One other theme is we learn that God now speaks through His son, Jesus and the words and teachings he presents and shows is the word of God, his faith and blessings. We look upon Jesus as the author and finisher of our faith and we
No matter what the situation was, he believed God had a plan, and a good reason behind all that he did. Even when the news of Nazi’s crimes against the Jews reached his town, he as well as the others remained faithful that God would not allow such a thing. They almost did not believe the rumors all together. But things began to take turn when God did not save them, contrary to what they thought. They too became victims of the Nazi crimes and were hauled away to camps.
The Sermon on the Mount is one hundred percent anti retaliation. If someone even does anything evil to you, you’re supposed to turn the other cheek, forgive, and pray for the ones who did you wrong. As a people we have a hard time following this simple rule because we don’t want to let people walk all over us, but apparently that’s the ideal way to live one’s life. The main reasons for this rule of living a moral life is that everyone, righteous or evil, are children of the all mighty God above. “That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Matthews 676).
Christ had referred to the Old Testament summary of all the laws of the Bible into two great commandments: "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind,' and your neighbor as yourself'" (Luke 10:27). When asked who was a neighbor, Christ related the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37). It was the Good Samaritan who took care of the mugging victim who was a neighbor to the victim. The others who walked by and ignored the victim's plight were not acting as neighbors to him. In the light of all we have seen the Scriptures teach to this point, can we argue that if we were able to save another's life from an attacker by shooting the attacker with our gun that we should "turn the other cheek instead?"
He stood by Johnny's side even after he murdered the “Soc,” Bob, supporting him because he knew that Johnny needed someone to stay with him and help him get through this difficult time. “I'm sure. It ain't fair for Ponyboy to have to stay up in that church with Darry and Soda worryin' about him all the time.” (p.87). Ponyboy along with Dallas and Johnny saved the children from the burning church. He knew, as did Johnny that they were the ones who accidentally set the church in flames, so saving the children’s lives no matter the outcome of his own was the least he could do.
