  • Paul And Jesus
    630 words
    Christianity is founded on the life and teachings of Jesus, a first century C.E. Jew. Christianity became an independent religion as it spread beyond its Palestinian borders.

  • Eternal And Literal Hell
    3,095 words
    Matthew Jay Krachunis May 2000 Hell The idea of heaven entices and encourages believers and non-believers alike. It is enjoyable to envision a place of eternal rest and relaxation, in the presence of God and loved ones. Heaven does exist according to the Bible, and is the destination of the believer in Jesus Christ at the completion of life on this earth. What is not encouraging is the fact that there is a place for those whom God chooses will not inherit everlasting life. This place is commonly...

    Christ: VICTORY!! "It is finished!" John 19: 30. What Christ is referring to here is the accomplished salvation of the people. What that means is that when we are saved, we do not have to put out burnt sacrifices up to Him. It is no longer needed because Christ died for us, which took away the iniquities of our sin. He did this out of great love for us. This is exemplified in John 3: 16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that who so ever belief in him shall have etern...

  • Sanctity Of Life In Christianity
    1,005 words
    The main difference between the three great world religions of today, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, is the way each religion views the man known as Jesus of Nazareth.

While the Gospels are not necessarily considered classics, they have, indeed stood the test of time. Almost 2000 years after Jesus lived, people ...

    Paul Lockwood End of Days The Bible is literally packed full of information regarding the end of this earth as we know it. Whether you choose to believe in God or not, it is a scientific fact that this earth has a shelf-life and will come to an end at some point in the far off future.

Mark stresses Jesus' message about the kingdom of God and how it is breaking into human life as good news and that Jesus himself is portrayed as the "gospel of God". Jesus is explained as the Son of God who is sent down to rescue everyone. His life is predestined as a sacrifice for humanity. The beginning of the book sets the tone of Mark by the actions of John the Baptist an...
