God shows revelations of himself through the Bible, and his character is revealed time and time again throughout scripture. Any faulty facts or discrepancies in grammar or data, should not take away from the value that scripture holds. When we read scripture we bring new meaning of interpretations of the truths God shows us, since new eras and environmental factors will be influential on how we process information. The bible is not just a fact book, telling humans stories of the past, but instead the bible is inspired instructions for how we can deal with spiritual and ethical encounters we
Then, our sense of purpose must be founded in ourselves, our own desires and ambitions, and our value is purely subjective; no more than we are valued as productive or desirable. The question of origins is, therefore, more than just one of science-fact, but one of crucial importance to how we view, and live, life. This study will examine the Scriptural answer to the origin of life. Scripture claims God as the origin of life. Every Bible student knows this simple fact: God created life.
Therefore many people believe that scripture is the one and true way that God have made himself known. Research indicates that through scripture God has inspired, communicate, and revealed himself to humankind through the elements of the world. Through these studies humankind has come to believe and understand that there is a greater source that can give and take away that which he has created. R.C.Sproul states “for whoever or whatever God may be he is altogether beyond our knowledge. 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.
He would have asked penetrating questions and obviously the religious answers he got did not satisfy his inquiring mind. However, if the Bible was inspired by the same person who created the universe, it should be able to answer this query to some satisfaction. But what if what we always thought we knew about the Bible was nothing like it really is? And though Christianity and the Bible have always been portrayed synonymously, what would happen if we discovered they are not the same??? Although depicted mostly as a 'religious' book, the Bible is really more a book of 'science'.
Imagination allows for one to explore deeper into their faith than what would be possible in the physical world. Brueggemann describes imagination in faith as inevitable because it is bound to happen when trying to understand that of which is beyond physical means; also when one relates the stories of an ancient world to present day circumstances. By using imagination to relate scripture to personal experiences, people discover their truths derived from The Bible through Ideology. According to Brueggemann, Ideology is biased by the interpreter. They have had very unique experiences that dictate their thought process while attempting to understand the words of scripture.
He was incarnated for eternal life to live with the Father in the Holy Spirit. This allows us to be encountered by God, and allows us to know more about him than we did before. Christ being crucified and risen is the main focus of the Sacred Scriptures. To appreciate what the Dei Verbum taught us about the past and the present nature of revelation from blessed John Paul
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).

The CWME (Commission of World Mission Evangelism) defined evangelism as the “commission to give the whole church, and take the whole gospel to the whole world”. It is this definition which seems more in line with the plumb line of God. Conclusion In drawing everything to a close it is concluded the Samaritan from the biblical perspective is no different from the contemporary. The psalms of songs are no different from the worship of the contemporary so long as they are humble unto God.

Genesis is one of the well-known books in the Bible. It tells the story of how the earth was created and how we came into being. It is a very crucial book that help defines us as Christians because it tells us of our origin whereas the nonbelievers of the world are still searching for an answer. St. Augustine agrees that Genesis is indeed an important book, however he believes that the Bible should be read differently due to truth of time and of creation as God sees it. In his eyes, St. Augustine believes that Genesis should be read and taken not literally but rather spiritually because time and creation only existed due to the coexistence of humanity, whereas God himself in all of his might and glory is forever eternal.
