If we just took that stance and said that as Christians we shouldn’t go to war then our country and the world we live in would suffer. Let me get something straight right now before I go into this topic, I do not like war; I think it is an ugly thing, and I wish there would not be any more wars on this earth for the rest of its existence. But the fact of the matter is that there is war, there always was war and there will always be war until the second coming of Jesus Christ. War has become a way of life, it was not God’s original plan, but because of the entrance of sin into our universe, war was created. The first war we know of was a war in heaven between Satan and his angles and Jesus and His angels.
The Monster attempted to coexist with humanity, dealing with violence and abuse, only to be rejected and alone, much like how Satan is rejected by God. He is hoping that the wicked nature of the humans was not common between them all, until he meets the family which sways his opinions about the race. This fruit of hope soon turns rotten when he decides to befriend them only to be rejected again saying “from that moment on I declared everlasting war against the species” (Shelly 124) after their reaction. It was at this moment where he lost his innocence, seeing the truth that all humans are violent, only to make himself more lonely, which is seen in Paradise Lost from Satans rejection from God after they were defeated. Satan is a fallen angel,
Continued intolerance will only result in people changing their beliefs and values in order to be accepted, much like how Christians have begun to change their faith and beliefs. The type of society where people are forced to change in order to be respected is unacceptable. We must work to reverse the trend of intolerance against the Christian before it develops into a more serious issue. As we do this though, we must examine all groups to ensure that something beneficial to one group does not cause something detrimental to another. While this is a difficult task to undertake, it is necessary if we are to ever develop a truly pluralistic society that is respectful of not only the Christian, but of everyone.
If the postmodern person read this definition it would create a storm, the post modern critique undermines all levels of truth whether it is from the English dictionary or the Holy Bible. The English dictionaries definition of evangelism is someone having a hidden agenda Depending on what domain of Christianity you are from depends on the word used, but in this case we are discussing the purpose of evangelism, it comes to something when Christians cannot agree on a word of God and use it universally, never mind the authors of books. We are talking about spreading the word of God in the first instance and then demonstrating Gods word in actions; and that is when it has to come from the heart and the agape of God’ love is witnessed in others. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be a Christian to be an example to God. Demonstrating Jesus’ actions is of primary concern in liberate others from... ... middle of paper ... ... components of mission and may never been given a life of its own.’ Having read this, it is infuriating how the ecclesiology can digress so far from what Jesus Christ tried to portray.
If we continue to allow the current minority, as loud as they yell, to make decisions that will ultimately affect us all, we are going to go the way of Rome, and other great countries who faded away, or crashed and burned, due to moral suicide. The Israelites were told to rid themselves of all evil, and they didn’t listen. They intermarried and propagated their population with the very people God commanded them to slay. This did not end well for them, on multiple occasions. Knowing what God wants from our nation is harder than knowing what God is asking us as individuals.
God and Money cannot be intertwined because when money is involved the human’s selfishness, greed, and power hunger takes over and causes people to forget about morals and beliefs that cause them to make decisions that only benefit them now, not the people of the future or the people that are less fortunate now in the present. “Jesus as Liberator” and “Kairos time” help us see the big mistake in mainstream Christianity. Columbus Christianity might as well be the total opposite of Liberation theology is, which means that mainstream Christianity is not doing the right things because it is only looking out for its people and that it. Kairos time shows how Liberation theology took the right moment by the hand, unlike mainstream Christianity, and
This first point on my list is sin. Everybody on earth sins, so it’s not like Christians don’t, but we try not to as well as we can and go to confession. Sin happens all the time and is often overlooked as why it is wrong. Obviously sin is important, because a man, Jesus Christ, died just so that we could be saved from them. Sin is so powerful, because it causes people to get mad at each other for whatever thing they did wrong.
Therefore, early Christianity experienced opposition from individuals and their following, thusly creating a devote need for clarification and a solidified statement of beliefs for all Christians. This was a part of the events that shaped the canonical books and it also contributed to the clarification and interpretation of what it actually meant to be a Christian and the consensus of what that meant to an individual seeking to serve the one true living God (Brueggeman 1978). In an analysis of the most prolific influences of the canonical books, the Gnostics, the ideals of... ... middle of paper ... ...he canonical book represents an act to preserve the teachings of Christ in order for it to maintain perpetuity. Essentially, the process of the culmination of these books represents a struggle to preserve the word of God. It is within this struggle that the early Church solidifies the Gospel and lays the spiritual foundation for Christianity to continue to reach the masses in its written truth.
It’s the responsibility of the worshipper to understand the consequences associated with disobeying God’s rules, and if he/she doesn’t listen, he/she will suffer the ultimate price, and god will turn against him/her. The Puritans believed that people must engage with God internally, and truly grip and capture the essence of his religious scripture. One might infer that if one is to be a true follower of God, one must be do God justice rightfully and justifiably. According to John Winthrop, in "A Modell of Christian Charitie," the “m... ... middle of paper ... .... He said the most important thing is that people read the bible, engage in their faith, act unified, work humbly, support each other, and refuse to work falsely with God.
Other people bravely tell them that they are already Christian, and another people feels sorry for their soul and tries to convey Trinitarian doctrine and the true gospel to them. However we are theology students who must defend our faith. And in order to defeat our enemy we must know our enemy. Jehovah’s Witness runs in a well structured organization and Jehovah’s Witness demands your royalty. If you do not belong to the organization, no matter how much bible study you undertake, you cannot understand the bible.
