  • Relationship Between God And Man
    803 words
    What a Christian Believes about Anthropology "Anthropology in general refers to any study of the status, habits, customs, relationships and culture of humankind. In a more specific and theological sense, anthropology sets forth the scriptural teachings about humans as God's creatures. Christian anthropology recognizes that humans are created in God's image but that sin has in some way negatively affected that image" (Gren z, Guetzki, and Noodling 11). In other words, anthropology is the study of...
  • God The Father
    607 words
    Jesus the Christ is God the Father (that One and only Holy Spirit - God is a Spirit and One) in flesh - the Son of God. It was God the Father who was responsible for overshadowing the virgin Mary and causing her to conceive. So Mary was the source of His humanity and God was the source of His divinity. He became a man but he did not cease to be God the Father of the universe. He could probably best be explained as the God-Man. Sometimes He spoke and acted as a man. Sometimes He spoke and acted a...
  • Reparation For Sins
    437 words
    Nothing impure can enter into the Kingdom of God (Revelations 21: 27). Every person will have to pay for their sins to 'the very last penny' (Luke 12: 59). I'll use somewhat of a parable to explain purgatory. God is just per Scripture (John 5: 30), correct? Now, let's say you have one man who leads a saintly life and another who leads a sinful life, but sincerely repents of his sins on his death bed. According to Protestants, both these men go straight to heaven after death. Is this just? I woul...
  • Loving Relationship With God

    My Religious Belief I am a Christian and I believe in the Holy trinity: God, the Son, the Holy Spirit. o God is the most high God, all-powerful, all-knowing, the creator, full of unfailing love and truth, God is the only "true" God. He is the light. o Jesus is the son of God, he is God in the flesh, he came into this world for two purposes, to teach us how to live on earth and because God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, Jesus. Jesus died on cross for our sins, and is sitti...
  • God's Discussion With Job
    745 words
    Abstract God created the heavens and the earth, for his own purpose. Man was created by God to rein over the Earth. Job, an innocent God-fearing rich man, was struck down by a series of grave calamities that destroyed his wealth, his family, and afflicted him with a dreadful and painful disease. In answer to his constant prayers God spoke with Job. While God did not address Job's question of why the calamities had befallen him, he spoke of the world that he had created. Thereby teaching Job that...
  • Pelagius Denial And Opposition Of God's Grace
    1,233 words
    By the beginning of the fifth century, the rate of growth for Christianity was increasing exponentially. However, there was a negative result of this rapid growth. What might have simply been a different interpretation of one person, spawned into indifference among the entire population of Christian followers. The Church wished for elimination of these in differences to maintain the strength of true worship. However, they saw it essential to put down the beliefs of one man in particular, Pelagiu...
  • Infinite And Truthful Being
    1,551 words
    Can the descriptions of God, claimed by the Bible, be proven In Descartes Meditations, Descartes logically proved the existence of an infinite and truthful being. The Holy Bible describes God, our creator. I plan to compare the logically proven infinite being (God) and the Biblical God and see if their traits mirror each other. If they do then it would prove, if not give strong evidence, that they are one in the same. First I will restate Descartes proof of an infinite and truthful being. P 1-Id...
  • Buddhists Sin
    689 words
    How does Buddhism differ from Christianity? 1. There Is No God Void vs. Loving God (emptiness, apathy, ignorance) In Buddhist thought, there is no supreme being, no Creator, no omnipotent omnipresent God, no Loving Lord over his creation. Ultimate Reality is an impersonal Void or Emptiness (Suny ata). Only the Void is Permanent. To a Buddhist, saying that God exists is like saying that the Void exists. Saying that God is loving and desires relationship with us is saying God is Ignorance since al...
  • Their Freedom From Sin Through Jesus Christ
    1,774 words
    1. Eden and the Expulsion a.) Eden, interpreted through the reversal of the curses, is given to Adam and Eve, like a gift from God. Eden offers them food, "and the Lord God made all kinds of trees grow out from the ground - trees that were pleasing to the eye and good for food", (Genesis 2: 9) and a place to live a simple life. Adam's task is to work the land, and in return he would be provided for with no hardship or struggle (Genesis 3: 17-19). Prior to the curses, Adam and Eve lived in a stat...
  • Jews Condemned Judgement According To Works Paul
    2,886 words
    The Wrath of God Revealed Paul began his argument of Romans by proving that the Gentiles are sinners before God. Although God has revealed His truth to them, they have suppressed it, resulting in the darkness of their inner man and rebellion against God to the point of worshipping animals (1: 18-23). As a result God gave them over to do the desires of their heart (1: 24, 26): idolatry (1: 25) and homosexuality (1: 26-27). Seeing that they had no desire to retain God in their knowledge, God gave ...

    448 words
    Omnipotence and St. Thomas Aquinas Omnipotence literally means the ability to do all things, or to have absolute power. This quality seems to be generally accepted as an intrinsic characteristic of the Judaeo-Christian god, as it says in Luke I. 37, '... there is nothing that God cannot do. '. Certain objections can be raised to attributing this characteristic to god however, in-so-far as this characteristic seems to conflict with other accepted attributes of god. In The Summa Theological St. Th...
  • Afraid Of Hester's Sin
    460 words
    Since the conception of humanity, man has been fascinated with that presence which illuminates, yet cannot be touched. Nathaniel Hawthorne uses light as a tool of God that illuminates and exposes the darkness of human iniquity not only to one's elf but to others as well. As the symbolism is quickly unfolded in chapter seven, Governor Bellingham's home is seen through Hester's eyes and light is reflected by almost every object in his extravagant dwelling, 'though partly muffled by a curtain, it w...
  • Weslyan Definition Of Sin
    653 words
    Adam and Eve, the two that started it all. These two names will remain as a reminder to us forever because of their actions. Genesis chapter two talks about how man was made perfect; flawless and in God's favor. These two individuals change how mankind would be from that time on. Sin entered the world and things began to change. Before Adam and Eve's decision there was no sin or death, because of their actions we now have to deal with both. This brings up the question of where original sin came ...

  • Sins David
    585 words
    Nathan's Rebuke Many people are familiar with David's sins involving Bethsheba that resulted in adultery and murder. Though these were dark pages in David's record, they were preserved so that lessons might be learned by those who followed after. These lessons to be learned not only came from David's mistakes, but from the rebuke that Nathan gave to David because of his sins. Found in 2 Samuel 12: 1-15, Nathan's rebuke will serve as the basis for my bible study, as well as Gods commitment to kee...

    Overtime peoples opinions tend to change, as well as their views on situations. The waythat we view sins today and the way that sins were viewed around Dantes time hascompletely changed. My beliefs are that something is a sin if it is against God's will, or breaking theten commandments. According to Dante one of the worst sins is being a pagan. I believethat all sins are measured equal in God's eyes. That may not seem fair to think thatmurder is equal to a lie, but God says that if we ask for fo...
  • Jesus Hath God
    5,505 words
    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 ...
