Christ and the apostles argued using the words of scriptures. The point of this argument that Hodge is making is that the scriptures need to be taken word for word. The doctrine of Plenary Inspiration is a doctrine that says that all of a canon is inspired by the Holy Spirit not just certain parts like the Protestants believe.
What is preaching? Even though Christianity has many definitions of preaching, in order to be effective, one must come to a common place on what true preaching really is. “Preaching is divine activity wherein the word of God is proclaimed or announced on contemporary issues for and ultimate response to our God.” Simply, preaching is the word of God being delivered through the language of everyday life experiences of congregation members. Many misconceptions are made that preaching is simply the unfolding of scripture. Personally, this misunderstanding could be explained as an exegetical scriptural reading.
Name: Edy Mangin Seminar Note 1: Introduction to Christian Doctrines THE DOCTRINE OF THE SCRIPTURE The Christian faith is grounded upon the understanding that there is a God, and God has revealed Himself to man in the Scriptures. We need to search the meaningful authority to prove and to acknowledge the divine authority. But human beings with their darkened minds and limited powers cannot infiltrate the knowledge of God. We have to humbly ourselves and let the Scriptures express themselves since God Almighty has revealed Himself in the Scriptures. The prophets themselves declared that they are not the instigator of the Scriptures.
However, the Bible inductively authorizes us to pattern ourselves after Christ in all that we do which is expounded upon in our “Call to be Holy,” in I Peter 1:13-16, “Therefore,... ... middle of paper ... ...tion with God. In other words, without God, it is impossible to be Holy. Moreover, the Bible tells us in I Peter 1:16 “Because it is written, be ye holy for I am holy” (Kings James Version). Therefore, in order to become Holy; we must abide in Christ and become a new creature as stated in (2 Corinthians 5:17). Because of this correlation, our mind (conscience), body and heart is transformed.
Faith and works has a very critical relationship in salvation. Most believe, you are saved by faith in what you believe. This concept shows up throughout the bible. The view of salvation is a critical issue because it strikes at the very heart of the Gospel message, eternal life. The bible and Christian religion specifically, teaches that we are not saved by faith alone.
Jesus was viewed as a historical figure that we can learn from spiritually and the Bible is used as a source of knowledge on Christian history (Bingham 152, 153). In this theological movement being a Christian is considered “nothing but feeling and experience” (Lane 238). Following is the Evangelical theology which evolved from the Pietism and Revivalist movement (Olson 33). Charles Finney, a leader in Evangelism, emphasized the need and ability to evangelize the world while also maintaining the power of free will” thereby influencing all but not trying to control the mind of the masses (Lane 253, 254). As well as being a supreme authority Evangelist’s believe that because the Bible was written by man through God’s instruction the Bible is both fully man’s and God’s (256).
Which is in its own right a positive to the movement. Bible is used as the center of the Christian faith, however where they went wrong was saying that God is not moving anymore and what we have in this book is all that there is. There is no need for any more revelation because the Bible is complete. Actions will be based on the foundations of the Scriptures and things that do not directly align with this scriptures will not be tolerated. The evangelical movement held to the truth that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God.
Comparing Revelation in the role of scripture as portrayed in Dei Filius and Dei Verbum Randy Nguyen Introduction to Theology Father Michael Bruno 12/15/17 Nguyen 1 Revelation has always been linked with God and his people. God is the one that made his will known to us. Through
God has ordained that Revelation is transmitted to all people, to all generations, and to remain intact forever. This mandate is performed by the Church through evangelization. However, the desire to proclaim Jesus Christ, to “evangelize” and to lead others to the “fiat” of faith in Jesus Christ, which at the same time arouses the need to know this faith better, does not come from human inspiration. It springs from the loving knowledge that Jesus Christ has of us. In this way, we need to understand that the primary and essential object of catechesis and religious education is the mystery of Christ.
Being limited in our ability to think as God does, one must believe and trust through the faith which has be built through the very word that has been written. With that being said, the writer Timothy share with his readers that all scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (Ti... ... middle of paper ... ...on is shown and reflected in text. This can be seen through the derived word ‘mirror.’ This can be pulled from portions in the Bible, such as 2 Timothy, Hebrews, and Jeremiah. Also, Doctrine tempers and becomes a determent as far as revelation. It can be broken down in two parts: Special and General Revelation.
