The singleness and agreement of God was greatly emphasized by the Jews and Muslims. However, Christians’ pronouncement of the singleness of God is most of the times misunderstood, for the reason that Christians believe in the Holy Trinity which doesn’t show defiance of monotheism but a declaration of the involvedness of the Divine Being. These three religions consider God as the beginning and cause of everything we see around us. They also believe that God is a caring God that is concern to all human beings. God is morally correct and has given us commandments that will help all of us live in a life that is according to his likeness.
Please note that I am going by the sub heading or passage description in my Bible. In John 10:34, 35 Jesus clearly believed that scripture was inspired and I have no trouble believing God inspired it. The epistemological and biblical arguments stand out as the most convincing in the article. Mr. Andrew did a good job of changing how the epistemological argument was made by asking the likelihood instead of using circular reasoning. This argument gained ground in my thinking once he argued it inductively.
This depicts the covenant that God made with Abram and Sarai and because He is a true God, Abraham and Sarah produced many generations of descendants, despite their old age. God shows Christians that He is the truth in John 14:6. Jesus says, “I am the way and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the father except through me.” This shows Christians that Jesus Christ is the truth and that He will save them. The Christian God is also special because He forgives sins.
“But Mary kept all these things, pondering them in her heart.” (Lk 2:19)He also includes stories about individuals and has many themes within his Gospel about his portrait of Jesus. Luke portrays Jesus as merciful and compassionate, someone who cares for and loves everyone and treats people equally. Jesus is portrayed as our saviour and is referred to as ‘the human-divine one’ and ‘the son of man.’ “For the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost," (Luke 19:10). This is the key verse and sums up what Jesus is known as. Luke gives us an image of Jesus as one who reaches out to the Gentiles and has a special concern for the poor and marginalised.

The Question of Meaning/Purpose- Christian’s belief that mankind were created to worship God, to glorify him, by being obedient, praying and being thankful Psalm 95:1 We are here to serve God, to have a personal relationship with him, to accept Jesus Christ in our hearts and belief that he is our Lord and Savior, to trust that he came to this world and gave hos life for us, to forgive our sins, and to allow him to love us and give us eternal life. 4. The Question of Morality- Mankind was created good, sin entered the world through Adam and Eve when they ate from the forbidden tree. God is Holy he is separated fro Evil, being created in the image of God, humans have a conscience and can distinguish good from bad. Jesus came to this world Matthew 28:19 to tell us that we are free from sin, follow him, create other disciples and reign in the glory of God for eternity.

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,
