Richard Mount APA THEO 201-B33 LUO In spite of what man has done to God’s creation, He has not abandoned it. He continually preserves it and sustains it through His grace and providence. Men are still made in His image and mankind is still Gods greatest creation. Chapter I in Genesis tells us how God created the heavens and the earth. He loves that creation and still holds it all together.
In Genesis 2:7, gives more detail of the making of man and how he became a living being. Therefore taken from scripture God created man. The Christian/Biblical worldview of identity is given in Jeremiah 1:5, God knew who we were before he formed us. In Jeremiah 29:11, God has made a plan for everyone. The morals of an individual leads him/her on the path of good or evil.
Through the divinity and humanity of the Christ, Christians and believers share the stories through word of mouth. The Son of God is also evident from the sacred texts of the Gospel testimonies which include the wonders and recoveries on people achieved by Jesus, and from the witness to his death, resurrection and ascension into heaven by his followers and other eyewitnesses. The beliefs of the divinity recognise his relationship to God as Son. Jesus’s divinity showed Jesus’ role to be the salvation of humanity and to resurrect and rise to defeat death. In the Gospel of John 1:14 “The Word became

Saliba Writing Style Used: APA Fifth Course and Section Number: Theo 201 – B16 Short Essay on Inspiration and Inerrancy of the Bible First we’ll discuss the authority of the bible; Authority is defined as “the right and power to command”. The authority of the bible comes from the fact that the fact that the bible is the physical result of God revelation of himself to mankind. In John 1:14 it says “14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Jesus is described as the word of god. And Mathew28:18 say “Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”.
Also, ‘the angels are sons of God’, (Job 1:6 NIV, TLB), in a sense that they are His creation.” (Sleman 12). After “God the Father,” there is “God the son,” meaning Jesus Christ is God’s son and also, a representation of God himself. Christians believe if they believe in the “son of God,” then they believe in God as a whole. Lastly, there is “God the Holy Spirit,” which is the power of God. Christians see that God gives life and he lives through His own spirit.
(Heb. 6:1 faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen. I would answer the Axiological question by saying, “God is the creator of the for universe.” Not only does he creates everything, he is everything. So that means because God is of value, we are of value too.We have to always keep God center. (Exodus 20:3 You shall have no other Gods me.)
In the Gospel of Mark, I see Jesus, the Son of God, as a loving, faithful, obedient servant who walks in compassion; doing the will of His Father. He is a servant. His message to us all is “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). Jesus witnessed to us on how to be great, by giving our life in service to God. Jesus taught us a new definition for greatness, the word servant.
Why was Jesus baptized? Why did he see this as something important to do? Answer: Jesus was baptized in order to go back to God, and to fulfilled with promises of Messiah, and we can infer that we should be baptized too, in order to follow the step of son of god Jesus, Jesus saw this as something important to do because in this way he became a perfect offering to save us from our sin. 2. Who was present at his Baptism? Answer: John the Baptist and many on lookers were present at Jesus' baptism.
Therefore, man is obligated to repent and put his faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation and bear good fruit or face the righteous judgement of God. In Romans 1:20, Paul reveals that the natural world testifies to a supernatural cause. According to the scientific evidence, nature itself had a beginning. As Dr. Frank Turek points out, the supernatural cause that created nature must be spaceless (Because it created space), timeless (Because it created time), immaterial (Because it created matter), powerful (Because it created out of nothing), intelligent (Because the creation event and the universe was precisely designed), and personal (Because it made a choice to convert a state of nothing into something; impersonal forces don’t make choices). This evidence is consistent with Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Paul eluded to this when he said that God’s invisible qualities, eternal power, and divine nature is clearly seen, being understood by what has been made, so that men are without excuse (Rom.1:20).
Additionally, God reveals Himself to His creation through His Word (John 1:1-18). Through both general and special revelation, the character and nature of God is revealed to humanity. God is. God is omnipotent (Matthew 19:26), omniscient (1 Samuel 2:3), and omnipresent (Jeremiah 23:24 & Matthew 18:20). He was and is and always will be (Exodus 3:14).
