God tells everyone to forgive those who had hurt them. Willingly forgiving Christians of their sins, and because He has forgiven Christians they are to forgive others. Although the world’s reasons to forgive other are valid, they are all but selfish reasons to take the initiative to forgive other people. God is an almighty and powerful God whom Christians are to fear. Although God loves all of his children, He could still use his power for bad but He chooses not to do so.
The old law of moses stated “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and a life for a life”. but Jesus replaced this and said “love god and love your neighbour as you love yourself”. this became known as the golden rule. Every action taken should be guided by these principals. In the sermon on the mount Jesus also explained about loving enemy’s.
In Christianity; God loves his people. (Romans 5:8) states, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we are still sinners, Christ died for us.” The commonality is God of both faiths loves the good people who chose to follow the right ways. The God of Islam loves certain people; but regardless, we live in a fallen world where everyone is a sinner ever since the day Adam and Eve sinned. According to both religions, there is an all-forgiving God. (Surat Al-Hajj, 60) of the Qur’an says, “…Allah is all-pardoning, ever forgiving.” Both faiths offer forgiveness when sin is
God can be trusted as he has proven his love in many ways. According to the Bible, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16). Suffering is part of humanity because when people believe in God, but sometimes wonder they begin to suffer because they are at fault. (Hiles & Smith, 2014). When a person begins to wonder why God is taking so long to hear their prayer, they begin to think they are not a fault.
While examining and comparing the doctrines and beliefs of both Christianity and Islam, it is important to compare each other’s viewpoint on the gospel, sin, and salvation in order to clearly see the major differences between the two religions. For Christians, salvation is centered on Jesus and his mission, crucifixion, and resurrection. We are told in the Bible that in 2 Timothy 2:10, “Therefore I endure everything for the sake of the elect that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, with eternal glory.” In other words, the Bible teaches us that Christ is the Son of God and our sinless Redeemer who died and rose again for our sins so that we may have everlasting life with God in Heaven one day. Therefore, all we believe
7:7-9; Gal. 3:24). Since we could never obey the Old Testament Law, God sent His only begotten Son Jesus Christ. If we “love our God” and “love our neighbors,” we will be following the two greatest commands Jesus gave to his followers. As unworthy sinners we should praise and honor God for the gift of salvation He provided to us.
This teaches us that it was in Gods plan to make everyone different, so that they are unique and special. "Recognition of the diversity should lead to respect for differences" (What the churches say) this teaches us that we should recognise the differences in people but that it shouldn't lead to us acting prejudice towards the persons differences. We should respect and be thankful that we are all different. In the bible there are many stories on prejudice one of them is The Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37). In this parable a Jew is beaten up, a fellow Jew walks on past with out helping him, a group of Jewish priests also walk past him but the one person who stops to help him is a Samaritan.
All He asks of us is to repent from our sins and seek Him with all our hearts. This parable motivates believers to always repent because God is the most merciful and forgiving. Besides teaching about the good news, Jesus also performed miracles that caused many people to believe in his
But Jesus came and pretty much told them that the only way they could justify doing that was if they were perfect. So unless you are the epitome of a perfect christian how can you justify showing hate to those who aren’t perfect? John 15:12 says, “This is My command: that you love one another [just] as I have loved you.” God is love. That is what God has always been. And as he has shown us unfailing love and forgave us of what we’ve done wrong we should also forgive oth... ... middle of paper ... ...ation that you believe is right.
Christians' Responsibility for Others I am going to look at references from the bible and find out what the Catholic Church teaches, to find out what Christians believe about their responsibility for other people, not only Christians but also every religious group. There are a number of stories in the bible about how we should treat our neighbours, the ones I will look at were told by Jesus who uses stories to get across points to the people of the time, who could relate to these stories better. First I will look at Mark 12:31 this states 'Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is no greater commandment than these.' Jesus gave his people this commandment and told them that it is one of the greatest and one that should be followed strictly.
