  • Christ Jesus
    279 words
    Once we are dead, doomed forever because of your many sins. You use to live like the rest of the world, full of sin, obeying Satan, the mighty prince of the power of the air. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us use to live that way, following the passions of our desires of our evil nature. We were born with an evil nature, and we were under God's anger just like everyone else. But God is so rich in me cy and he loved us so very much, that even while ...
  • Co Existence Between The Word And God
    3,109 words
    The Gospel of John is the fourth book of the New Testament. The passage that we will be dealing with from the book of John is chapter one verses one through five. In the outline from the background study it is under the section, The eternal Word incarnate. This passage is the prologue, which John uses in order to establish the foundation that he will use to build his presentation of the life of Christ, as it was not portrayed in the synoptic Gospels. Verses 1-5 will be best understood in light o...
  • True God And Jesus Christ
    2,647 words
    A healthy, vibrant, growing and happy Christian life requires a regular routine of communion with God through prayer, study His Word, and in Christian service to mankind. Like eating, sleeping, and exercising, it demands daily attention. And like our bodies, our spiritual life quickly withers and dies without spiritual food. I. Communicating Your Mind with Him The story of Enoch is a great example of a man who spent much time in prayer and communion with God. In fact He kept his mind in tune wit...
  • Live Everyday For Christ
    569 words
    The Doctrine of Salvation (Soteriology) God provides us with everything we need; we see this in Genesis where he provided Adam everything he needed. Jesus became a man by reincarnation a verse to support this is John 1: 14 "The word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory. The glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus was perfect he did not even yield to the temptations of his nature unlike the people around him. It says in Jo...
  • Sound Spiritual Wellness
    829 words
    Around the world in Christian and secular circles we hear the word stewardship. Not only is stewardship one of the basic issues discussed in scripture, but it's also something we neglect as something we need to concentrate on while going through our own Christian walk. We live in a society that is very individualistic, concentrating on whatever will bring pleasure and make us feel good. Stewardship definitely doesn't fit into the way society is today. Before going to far into this, what exactly ...
  • Very Same Transfiguration
    292 words
    once i had a huge ass dog but the mother fucker bit my fucking hand off The mosaic in the apse of San Vitale in Ravenna depicts a younger version of Christ. This is significant because it shows a beardless Christ, signifying that he may be from the Mediterranean. His halo contains the Cross and he is wearing a purple robe. It is rather two-dimensional, because the draperies do not convey a sense of organic bodily movement. The figures are also mostly displayed in a frontal view. The globe on whi...
  • Christ's Deity And Divine Mission
    562 words
    Preexistence of Christ Advanced Information The p reincarnate existence of Christ may be 'only a simple, contemplative inference backwards from the spiritual glory of the present Christ' (Deissmann); certainly its clearest expression is found in later writing reflecting upon the rudimentary messianic, even adoption ist, assessment of Christ in the primitive Christian community (Acts 2: 22 - 23; 10: 38). Yet preexistence is at least implied in words of Jesus himself: 'The son of man came'; the ow...
  • Very Midst Of Gods Light
    3,870 words
    As a Jesuit priest who had converted to Catholicism in the summer of 1866, Gerard Manley Hopkinss mind was no doubt saturated with the Bible (Bergonzi 34). Although in "Gods Grandeur" Hopkins does not use any specific quotations from the Bible, he does employ images that evoke a variety of biblical verses and scenes, all of which lend meaning to his poem. Hopkins "creates a powerful form of typological allusion by abstracting the essence-the defining conceit, idea, or structure-from individual s...
  • Heart Of The Son Of God
    5,536 words
    Steps to ChristForewordPage 5 Few books attain a distribution reckoned in millions or exert so great an influence in the uplifting of humanity as has Steps to Christ. In countless editions, this little volume has been printed in more than seventy languages, bringing inspiration to hundreds of thousands of men and women throughout the world, even those who dwell in the remote corners of the earth. From the appearance of the first edition in 1892, the publishers have been called upon to add printi...
  • Christmas Celebration
    1,952 words
    Christmas is not a Bible doctrine. If our blessed Lord had wanted us to celebrate His birthday, He would have told us when to celebrate it and how to celebrate it. But Christ never told anyone to celebrate His birthday. Furthermore, we know from the Bible and from the church that the apostles and the early church never celebrated Christ's birthday. In fact, there are only two birthday celebrations recorded in the Bible; and each of them is connected with murder. The Bible tells us in Genesis 40:...
  • First Spiritual Weapon Catherine
    1,581 words
    When people give their lives to Christ Jesus their hearts are changed and their soul becomes alive with the Holy Spirit. Once a life is saved, is life relaxed and easy for it is saved from the pit of hell? Of course not, Christians are faced with temptations from Satan and his demons. Temptations are brought upon us for us to make the choice of whether or not to fall into temptation or not. In the book The Seven Spiritual Weapons, Catherine of Bologna lists seven spiritual weapons to conquer ene...
  • Daily Thing For Hudson As God
    1,141 words
    Student Review have seen that living in luxury is pointless and not only that but it can effect the way one lives for God. When you live with just the necessities, you show yourself that there is more to entertainment and comfort in life, that seeking material wealth all the time, Is a waste of time and the precious gift of life which God has bestowed upon us to live for His glory and not our own. Gods will is indeed inedible. Nothing we can do will prevent what He has in store for us in this li...
  • Life Of Jesus Christ
    761 words
    Jesus Christ lived a very full, if short, life. He did and accomplished more in his thirty years than many men do in twice that. The gospels each tell their versions of his life. Of the four, I found the gospel of Mark to be the most interesting. I enjoy the style of writing in this gospel more than the others. I feel it gives a better summary of the events in Christ's life. Whereas the other gospels tend to get bogged down with parables or spend too much time on specific events, the gospel of M...
  • Christian Worldview In The Family Life
    3,828 words
    Outline Introduction I. The Christian Worldview. II. Living the Christian Worldview in the Family Life. Conclusion Introduction: Do we have a narrow view of the Christian faith? Many see it as simply a personal relationship with God, a commitment to Sunday services, Wednesday evening Bible study, and a little witnessing. Those are all good activities-as far as they go. But Christians need to realize that every decision they make reflects their core values. So choices about voting, budgeting, mar...
  • Marriage Of Christ And His Church
    1,999 words
    AO 1-What is meant by the term, "rite of passage"? Choose one Christian denomination. Describe the main rites of passage in that denomination.

  • Going Hard After The Holy God
    3,242 words
    GOING HARD AFTER THE HOLY GOD (Philippians 3: 2-16) Our theme for the week of prayer has been, 'Going Hard after the Holy God. ' Last week we focused on the Holy God. Today we focus on 'going hard. ' The phrase is adapted from A.W. Tozer, whose little book, The Pursuit of God, has a chapter entitled, 'Following hard after God. ' Tozer wrote this book in 1948 but if anything it is more relevant today. After showing how Moses and David and Paul and all the great hymn writers were even thirsting af...
  • Crucial Christ's Message Of Love
    553 words
    That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord", and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. -Romans 10: 9 From the time we are small children sitting in Sunday school not able to fully grasp the love of God that we sing simple songs about, we are taught that Jesus was sent to earth to love us no matter what. The Puritan congregation listening to Jonathan Edwards's ermon Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God in 1741 were not being taught of this wonderful ...
  • Jew And Gentile
    474 words
    Step 1 In the first century, the world was divided, just like today, but the basic distinction was between Jew and Gentile. For that reason, some Jewish Christians had trouble accepting Gentile converts-some even said they needed to become Jewish first. Paul shows the Ephesians how God answered the world's plea for oneness-it was in Christ. The paragraph before my section speaks of the former state of Gentiles and Jews. Jews hated those who were not of their race and called them Gentiles, but th...
  • Prayer And The Holy Spirit
    1,518 words
    Lesson 1 Why We Should Witness Witnessing is a very important tool in Christianity. It was commanded by Jesus for us to go out and make disciples. The need for people to hear the Good News is a matter of life and death. In Ecclesiastes 7: 2 it says: Death is the destiny of every man; the living should take to his heart. Because of mans sinful nature, we are undeserving of His forgiveness, destined to death and eternal separation from God. But Christ does not want anyone to perish, but wants ever...
  • Taylor's Reliance On God's Grace
    1,187 words
    Edward Taylor was a deeply religions man who allowed his inner struggles and ideas to flow through his pen onto paper, inviting the rest of the world to struggle with him. He incorporated many Puritan ideas within his writings that gave the reader a clue to the inner workings of his soul and mind. In his poem, "Meditation 38", Taylor invoked the use of a controlling metaphor to show Christ as an advocate before God. During the course of this poem, Taylor both refuted and confirmed a number of Pu...
