The Cultural Mandate is when God chose that path for you to go down. God himself planned out what he wanted you to do with your life after he created the earth. He knew way before you were born that you were going to go down the path that you are going down right now. That amazes me and gets me through every trouble that is in my life because I know that God was the reason why I am able to be passionate about my future vocation. Once God created the earth he created man and man was put on the earth to fill, subdue and rule over the earth. But, when God put people on the earth he did not expect that the people would sin so much that it would bring us to “the fall”. And so the job that you have chosen is what God has planned for you to do in the world even if there is a fall that took place in the world. Look at Cultural Mandate as a way of you putting your own little mark on the world. Whatever you are going to do you are making your own mark. Some people may not believe that they are...

...is with the controversy with religion and science. When I find a happy balance between what I believe in and what my job description is I believe that I will be able to have a healthy life style with God as my main belief. Through my college and the way the teachers have been teaching me I have been able to understand how to understand faith and my vocation. ‘The image of God” is shown through my vocation by the way that my job will effect the world and how I will leave my mark on the work. For “the fall” of the world it can go along with my vocation saying that biology can be confusing with everything that needs to be done and all of the different research projects that come with being a successful biologist. All of these things will give me a hard but happy life with God as my creator and also with the fact that I can do anything through Christ who strengthens me.

- As read he history in discussion- 4, I see that book was written after the death of Jesus Christ and even the time of Jesus there not a religious belong to him. Those religious was create by the group of the people around the communities for the need of human being and to protect life of people in my view. So after the death of Jesus people start to recognize him as massager of the god. They start to faith in him. The faith turn into the ground of people in the society and the society give make it the culture and tradition which is known as the religious and celebrate it....

- “By what authority?” is a question that has likely come across every single living human beings mind, whether in this language or by this mode of communication. Why does one, as opposed to another, gain the power to decide fundamental behaviors that are appropriate – what should we eat or not eat, wear or not wear, do or not do. At least according to the Christian scriptures and early history, a man known as Jesus Christ lived, performed various miracles and shared lessons, was sentenced to death by Rome on a cross, and rose again on the third day, leaving His (and by proxy, God’s) new Kingdom on Earth....

- “To stand up for what you believe in is more important than to be scared of imprisonment or death.” – Socrates The Apology In this literature review I will discuss both Socrates and Jesus Christ (Jesus). I will compare and distinguish them, by their trial, misdeeds (through the view of society), law, justice and punishment. In addition, I will write about their influence in today’s society and what impact they have made through time. Both Socrates and Jesus had many things in common yet, they we’re different....

- 1Paul, a prisoner of Christ Jesus, and Timothy our brother, To Philemon our dear friend and fellow worker— The letter’s opening is friendly and personable despite the fact that Paul wrote this letter in prison. The book of Philemon, unlike some of the other Pauline epistles, was written to a specific person whom Paul appeared to be very fond of. 2also to Apphia our sister and Archippus our fellow soldier—and to the church that meets in your home: Though the letter appears to be intended for Philemon, two others are addressed by name: Archippus and Apphia....

- The question of who is Jesus Christ is one that has been, and still is, among one of the most difficult to answer entirely. In reading the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John we gain insight into who He was to the world, but we never really get a background scene of the man Jesus. In studying the historical personality of Jesus Christ, it is important to understand and expound upon the background of who He was as a historical figure and the socio-political and cultural atmosphere and climate in which He lived....

- "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." This verse - John 3:16 - is perhaps the most important in the Bible. Jesus Christ was the son of God, but he was also the son of man. Jesus had a human mother, Mary (see Luke 1:30-31 for example), but his father was God (see John 3:18 for example). Jesus was human, not God. Consider 1 Timothy 2:5:"For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;" There could not be a clearer statement that Christ was a man....

- Buddha and Jesus Christ in Literature Many pieces of literature and characters in literature are based off of religious figures or beliefs. In the literary pieces that we have read this semester, Buddha, Jesus Christ, and their religions have often been motifs. Buddha and Christ have many striking differences, but also quite a few similarities. They have both been very influential in many of the worldly religions of today, and in literature throughout the years. The man commonly known as Buddha was born in 560 B.C....

- The Impeccability of Jesus Christ 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 vital to our theology that Jesus was sinless. For only if Jesus was sinless could His death have been a vicarious substitution and fulfil God’s redemptive plan for man....

- The two largest religions in the world are Islam and Christianity and they have several facts of contact. Both inbred from Judaism an acceptance of one God, the creator of the world and cares about the beliefs and behavior of human beings. In spite of having some points of principle in common, Christianity and Islam have enormous differences, not merely in beliefs regarding salvation, Christ and forgiveness but in several other fields affecting human attitudes, behavior and daily life. Christians in his time were known by Prophet Mohammad and along with Jews he respected them as “People of the Book”.... [tags: Qur'an, Islam, Jesus, Muhammad]

- Christianity and Popular Culture In his classic work Christ and Culture, H. Richard Niebuhr asserts that the relationship between earnest followers of Jesus Christ and human culture has been an "enduring problem."1 How should believers who are "disciplining themselves for the purpose of godliness" (1 Tim. 4:7) relate to a world whose culture is dominated by "the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the boastful pride of life" (1 John 2: 16). Culture is God's gift and task for human beings created in His image and likeness.... [tags: Religion God Jesus Papers]
