8:9). His teaching ministry (many lessons and parables) One of the great many teachings of Jesus are he was making us aware of what we worship such as the category of money. Sin can be as simple as the love of money that we cannot hang on to our sins or our love of money and still follow Jesus. There cannot be the best of both worlds; one cannot be in this world and in the next. Peter for example was sure that since he had given-up everything for the Lord that he should be guaranteed a place in heaven or a special reward.
Jesus’s Christianity abolished earthly and social class distinctions and resulted in equality. Attaining a life with Christ is only through the Holy Spirit and faith alone, not the works one can do or the class they reside in, which means that everyone is able to attain this faith and relationship with God. In choosing not the appoint women to ministry because you may believe they are not of that status completely disregards a part of Jesus’s entire message. Jesus’s desire for women and men is perfectly put in Acts 2:17-18, “In the last days, God declares, I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men ... ... middle of paper ... ...rage never excluded anyone from ministry on the basis of gender or race.

Jesus says her offering was greater as “She gave all she had to live on.” (Mark 12: 41-44) What this means is that true discipleship is not something that can be done in a half-hearted way. You have to give all you have in the service of God and other people. Jesus thought that life would be made difficult for those who believed he was the Messiah sent by God so he warned he disciples the cost of discipleship. He said, “If you want to come with me, he must deny self, take up his cross and follow me.

In other words, he was God with flesh on, completely equal and inseparable from God. Jesus’s ministry was to proclaim the Word of God, but what separates him from other profits seen through the bible,is that he spoke under his own authority. As prophet Jesus confronts sin. Jesus listens, intercedes, and advocates, deeming him the role of Priest. According to Hebrews 7:27, Jesus’s sacrifice is superior, which sets him apart from Old Testament priests.“He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself.” Worship and prayer is all possible because of Jesus who intercedes and advocates on our behalf.
It is not Godly to strive towards riches, or to obtain an abundance of material possessions on earth, but more important to seek the rewards in Heaven. The Bible teaches, “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have” (Hebrews 13:5 NIV). Every man should be being Christ-like by heading Jesus’ warning, “You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love” (Galatians 5:13 NIV). Furthermore, the Bible ... ... middle of paper ... ...ssenger, Death, promised Everyman paradise should his soul be saved and he be allowed to go to Heaven (Line 270).

His doctrine spread quickly and people learned the meaning of justification by faith. “But now that God has taken my salvation out of the control of my own will, and put it under the control of His, and promised to save me not according to my working or running, but according to His own grace and mercy.” (Luther). Luther led the reformation by showing people the scriptures and preaching that God had already saved the people, that they did not need rituals or indulgences to purify their selves.
