Differing worldviews will ask and answer variations of these questions. As Christians we take the questions further and seek to know and understand the God that created us and how He reveals Himself to us as well as what He has revealed about Himself. Revelation is the Christian notion that “God chooses to be known” (McGrath, 2011, p. 152), it is the “unveiling or uncovering of who God is, who we are as human beings, and how God interacts with and in our world” (Lecture 2, GCU).

They are statements that summarize the beliefs of the religion. One of the beliefs found in those articles is the belief in God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost. They also have a belief that anyone can be saved if they believe in God and obey His laws and ordinances. Another article is the belief that both the Bible and Book of Mormon are the word of God. It is also believed that when God returns, Christ will reign on earth, and earth will be renewed and be the place of glory.
The goal of the doctrinal Dei Verbum is to follow the footsteps of the Council of Trent and Vatican I, in that it wishes to set forth authentic doctrine on divine revelation and how it is handed on. The document speaks upon multiple topics, among which are revelations, the relationships between Scripture and Tradition, the values of the Old Testament, the positions of the four Gospels in the life of the church, and others. However, there is one specific theological truth that cannot be overlooked. The way you interpret the Scripture should carefully investigate what meaning the authors intended and what God wanted to manifest by means of their words. The word of the Lord is the essence of our faith and our livelihood.
The power of the counselor is ingrained in God’s Word. This material incorporates the Christian assignment in helping those in the extreme need in a manner that was similar to Jesus. In addition, Jesus is established as a model character in helping counselors. Most counselors’ deeds are a go-between in a spiritual form where greater powers try to find ways to put an end to the work of God. This is known in a culture where more or less regularly informed about counselors who have over step guidelines with counselees in sexual and personnel relationships.
The final stage is founded in the authority of God that calls disciples to act according to the guidance and direction of Scripture through intimate knowledge and living of biblical principles (Adams, 1986). Backus and Chapian (2000) approach change in a similar fashion calling the counselors attention to the misbeliefs of the counselee. According to their philosophy, it is the misguided direction of thoughts that cause
Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Cynthia Warren Liberty University Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Summary Entwistle’s goal of this book is to inform the reader that there are two different books of God: His word and His works (Enwistle, 2010, p. 26). The Bible states, Jesus and His disciples used integration to perform God’s work. As in 2 Timothy 3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. The book is filled with information that provides an explanation of the relationship between psychology (God’s works) and theology (God’s words). He uses the ancient cities of Athens and Jerusalem to show how the cultural differences between the two are used to display the theme of integration.
For Old Testament believers the promise of deliverance appeared in Exodus 19:5–6. For New Testament believers the content of the gospel appeared in 1 Corinthians 15:1–4. The role of Jesus is a central feature of the gospel for New Testament believers. What is the gospel? Paul defines it very clearly in 1 Corinthian 4:2-3.
The best example that the word of God in my opinion is the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible is the Word of God because of its unique revelation of the person of Jesus Christ. The Bible tells about Jesus, and it is the most wonderful story on earth. Jesus claimed to be God, he let people worship him as only God would, he forgave sins as only God could forgive sins,
The Holy Spirit leaves in me and has helped me discern what is right and wrong. God is perfect; therefore, as a Christian I strive everyday to be more like God. Evil exists because the devil, which initially was an angel of light, wanted to be above God and no one can be more than God. He created me with a purpose in life and is to develop my spiritual life, serve Him, others and follow His word. I am committed to my Christian beliefs since I based my knowledge in the Bible.
