• Jesus And Christology Study Of Christ
    1,332 words
    Theologians and philosophers have been trying to question who Jesus is for hundreds of year now. This time in the form of what is called the contemporary study of Christology. The thrust of Christology is somewhat dependent upon which theologian one reads. Hans Kung calls his approach Christology from below. Others simply focus on the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ (Cunningham); others are exploring His life and work on earth (Imbelli). Some deny the fact that Jesus is God (Kung), ot...

    Before I even begin to deconstruct Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, I think it is very appropriate to explain my perspective. I attended Catholic schooling for my first nine years of education. The school I attended taught the Catholic faith in a very conservative and orthodox manner. I still do practice the Catholic faith, but at the current time, I am very impressionable with it comes to my faith and beliefs. My first impression after reading The Da Vinci Code was that Brown is very blasphemous tow...

  • Cheap Grace God Costly Church
    1,370 words
    The Price of Salvation "Cheap grace means grace as a doctrine, a principle, a system. It means forgiveness of sins proclaimed as a general truth, the love of God taught as the Christian conception of God" (43). Cheap grace does not give God what He deserves from us; it takes advantage of His grace. The grace of God cannot and should not be reduced to a system for getting to heaven. It needs to be a way of life. "You are not your own; you were bought at a price." (1 Corinthians 6: 19-20). Christ...

It was critic...

    In America there are more religious groups especially from foreign countries than I had suspected. There are more Islamic members than those of Judaism and more Buddhists than Seventh Day Adventist. All religions acknowledge that God is forever and exist everywhere at all times. Oftentimes a local congregation will have the same belief in one City, town, or country as they hand down their manner of faith and practices and these groups do not keep up with any new developing questions or reasons f...

    For God So Loved the World Even though I was only a small child, I remember the cold, fall day that I accompanied my father to a nearby cemetery. As we stood above three tiny graves, I recall the tears streaming down my fathers face and the anguish in his eyes. My father was reluctant to explain why we were there for fear that I was just too young and innocent to understand the horrid circumstances involved. He didnt have to explain. I knew exactly why we were there. Word had already spread at m...

    An examination of the question of the impeccability of Jesus Christ Essay written by T. Swan The New Testament authors had no qualms about declaring that Jesus was truly human and telling us that Jesus committed no sin. Bible passages such as 2 Corinthians 5: 21, Hebrews 4: 15, 1 Peter 2: 22 and 1 John 3: 5 witness that He [Jesus] did not give in to temptation, nor violate the moral standards of God, nor was He inconsistent with the nature of his character. That is, Jesus was sinless. It is vita...

    Religion is a hard basis for some people to talk about. For me, quite simple, I just tell people about my Lord God. Some people argue that is an outrageous idea but no more outrageous than any other religion. In C christianity, you have to communicate and glorify the Lord whereas in other religions, you just simply refer to the "teachings." Many that do not believe in Christianity use pride, moral problems, and ignorance as excuses. The foundation of everything that I believe in is found in the...

    We must insure that innocent people, such as Marshall and Millgard, are never convicted or sentenced to death for a crime that they did not commit.

When an innocent person is arrested, he is often the driving...
