“Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true” (Revelation 21:1-5). “Do not love the world or anything in the world… For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away…” (1 John 2:15-16) Conclusion The fall of man and death of Christ. I picked these two topics because I felt that they were closely related. Two people sin and God sins his one and only son to correct their mistake.
Secret sin plays a key role in our lives, and although most of us don’t have physical symbols of this secret sin, it is embedded in our soul. Secret sin tears apart the human soul and psyche, and only after it is dealt with, can we move on to find peace or happiness. We need to make sure that the things that we do wrong, we don’t hide. We have to deal with these sins, and turn them into stepping stones, so as to grow and become a better person. Hiding them leads to destruction, but growing from our faults has no limits.
Judas who was once an Apostle to Jesus Christ betrayed him by informing Chief priest who Jesus was. Although Dante places Judas, Marcus Julius Brutus and Gaius Cassius in the same chasm which shows how closely important and serious betrayal to the church and to the state are to him, Judas is damned to the worst punishment of all. Which is only just because he betrayed Jesus, our Lord and Savior, the Son of God. Such betrayal justly deserves to be the “soul that suffers the most.” (34.61) This allusion being both political and religious serves more than one purpose. Like the others it helps to warn people to not commit these same crimes and sins so that they don’t have the same misfortune as these famous figured did.
Christian worldview’s response to the problem of evil and suffering is a reality because they are born into a broken world in the result of the fall (Hiles & Smith, 2014). Christians understand that “suffering increases our compassion and equips us to comfort others who suffer” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4). Also, Christians understand that Jesus died for humanity to gain eternal life. If people reject the purifying death of Jesus, then they will suffer the consequences of God’ rebellion (Gockel, 2009). This means that God will not save them, nor force them to believe in Him; in which they will be condemning themselves to suffer.
Silencing the enemy is a very fitting title for this book. It is fitting because the author, Robert Gay, explains how God suppresses the devices of the adversary through the praise and worship of His people. Although the term “spiritual warfare” is not found in scripture, Paul expounds on the concept throughout the New Testament. He encourages the saints to “Put on the whole armor of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil”. This scripture informs us that we are in a battle, a battle that has been raging since the beginning of time.
He, in no way, did anything to deserve the treatment that he got. Granted that he died on the cross for our sins, He is the reason that we are forgiven for all of the r/ terrible things the people of the world t-O,today. People take advantage of the fact that God will forgive us of our sins, which is another way of disrespecting our heavenly father. In the bible verse 1John 1:9 it is stated that "if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness." Though people are not confessing their sins, they are just asking for forgiveness of their sins, which doesn't work, Furthermore, in modern days h It is only right for a man to lay with a woman... ... middle of paper ... ...l matter is what you have done for him.
God must need suffering to happen for a reason, but ... ... middle of paper ... ...ering is always going to be painful no matter if God is the one who is doing it to us or not. What we need to realize is that suffering with faith in God is much more justifiable than suffering without. In I Peter it says "However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. "(I Peter 4:16). So suffering as a Christian is all right because it means that you share an aspect of Christ's life, and you should continue to praise God.
The huge nature of Jesus’ suffering is displayed in the passage when the soldiers mock Jesus.  Jesus had a choice whether or not to suffer and die, and chose to, to save us. He suffered for us to make us good enough for heaven, and could have stopped at any time, but didn’t. Jesus doesn’t have to pay the price for his sins as he has none, and Christians believe that in his willingness to suffer and die on their behalf, Jesus set an example, which they themselves should be prepared to follow. In the Gospel Jesus says, “If anyone would come after me…he must deny self and take up his cross and follow me.” Jesus’ death was not a sign of his failure, but the climax of his ministry.
When Jesus asked his disciples about what people thought about him, they answered that some considered Jesus to be e prophet, some - John the Baptist. But Jesus wanted his disciples to understand his mission, the reason why God brought him to Earth. That is why it was important for him to make sure that people realize who he is and that his sayings are vital for the whole mankind. Jesus was the Messiah, the anointed one, above all other prophets. He was sent to suffer for the all human beings and the reasons why his suffering was necessary are described in Mark's Gospel 8:27-9:1.
The Apostle Paul declares that "anything that is not based on faith is sin." (Romans 14:23) It seems that God wants man to live with his face continually turned toward him in love, devotion, and obedience. The Apostle James talks about how there are sins of commission and omission, for "the person ... ... middle of paper ... ... From mortal and venial sins to the seven deadly sins, the concept of sin can be a tough thing to nail down. Our predispositions about life and the temptations we experience while we are here can bog us down. This can keep us from the real message of good news.
