As a child I knew about Christ and the Bible, however my perception of Christ and Religion was way off. Too afraid to ask anyone, I just went and sat by my friends not really paying attention to what the sermon was about. In the story when it came time for Langston’s time to get saved, he was confused on a lot of things about Christ. He got saved for the sake of his aunt, church family, and society just like many other children including myself. “Sa... ... middle of paper ... ...ll.
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). We live for God because we know that he was the creator of all things In the beginning God created heaven and earth (Genesis 1:1) and that he is the glue to our puzzle, he hold everything together He is before all things, and in him all things hold together (Colossians 1:17). A true Christian’s worldview believes that even though the bible was not actually wrote by God himself, it is still the word of God, the divinely inspired word that is revealed to mankind All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). Christians have to know that God sacrificed his son Jesus Christ ... ... middle of paper ... ...hristian. It is knowledge that everything is God-given.
Whether it’s because I get “too busy” or have “more important” things to do, putting other things before my relationship with God is wrong and I do it far too often. As far as loving my neighbor as myself, there’s no way I could say that. I have a hard enough time loving my own family as I should, let alone all the rest of the world. Another command God has given to all Christians is to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15) Although I haven’t gone to any other country to share the gospel, I have done a few things to answer this call (but not nearly enough – there are hundreds of lost people I’m around every day of school to whom I rarely formally witness). I have attended SEMP (Students Equipped to Minister to Peers), where I learned about evangelizing, specifically, to my friends.
I must say the points that he made I agree. My view on this topic is also scriptural. Although, the word incarnate is not written in the Bible per se, there is much evidence that God indeed fashion Himself in the flesh. John inscribe this in his book, “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” However, through the Virgin Birth, He did not compromise His deity. One reason of the many, is that God became flesh to relate to us.
He enlightens us on the fact yes, many of us truly do seek God, but we are oftentimes clouded by our own thoughts and desires. As soon as man begins to look for the truth and look for the good in God’s grace, we have ambitious intentions, such as to further our own wisdom. Is it truly an evil to further our own wisdom? This is one thing that comes to mind when dealing with this article for me. For every reason we seek god though, it in someway has a selfish reasoning behind it, even if not harmful intent.
My view of God is very similar to the non-denomination Christian Worldview. I believe that God is an omnipotent Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that oversees the entire universe. I believe that God created everything in his image, including man. Because He rules over everything, it is He that I look to for forgiveness, assistance, and gratefulness. I am able to approach Him about anything because, ultimately, God’s love is never-ending.
We, His creation only share in existence with God. We depend on God for our existence, meaning that not only does God create the universe but He also keeps the universe in existence every second, giving him the title of the most powerful being. St. Augustine of Hippo once called out to God by saying “O Highest and Best, most all-powerful most merciful and most just, most deeply hidden and most nearly present,” (CP3 14). Not only does this show that God is powerful but also transcend and immanent. God being transcendent means that He is infinitely beyond, above, and outside the universe and all things.
Benchmark Assignment: Gospel Essentials God In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis1:1.) God’s perfect wisdom created everything. In Genesis 1 and 2 we can see that God has loving and gentile nature when He created the earth and heavens. God created man in his image and we are the only creation that God breathed in the breath of life for human beings (Genesis 2:7). God did not do this for any of other creations but only for humans.
We need to make sure that our students know that God is good all the time even when we can’t see it. Lesson 1 – Joseph’s Dreams. This lesson begins with Joseph as a teenager. Joseph began following God and making good decisions early on in life. Joseph experienced great tragedy very early on in life, yet he never used his circumstances as an excuse to do wrong.
I also question what he does because of my own personal reasons that happened in my life. But I have been told if you do not wonder or question his grace then you will never break through as a Christian because you will sin and act like nothing ever happened. Windsor Village worship service with Pastor Caldwell opened my eyes to more than I imagined with my religion, but he also gave a better understanding to the questions I always needed answered. This was a great way to learn about God.
