Although God loves all of his children, He could still use his power for bad but He chooses not to do so. God’s children, who can be defined as those in his kingdom by the blood of Jesus Christ, are the chosen ones for doing His will. He makes it clear that Christians are to fear him. “Yes, we should fear God because He is the Almighty Creator who can discipline us should we rebel against Him. He is so holy and so awesome that being in His everlasting presence brings an inspiring fear.” (CARM) As this CARM states, God is so amazing and so powerful.
With this Original Sin, corruption entered humanity never to leave until God the Father imposed His Word onto us so that we could be saved. This damaging corruption blinded us from seeing God in His own creation and in His own people. Never the less, God refused to abandon His people in a time of such great need for salvation. He chose to save them, but how? How could he destroy death and pay the debt of all humanity while remaining God?
When a king was upset he would often take a violent path. God, on the other hand, chose to send someone kind and loving to help us rather than to hurt us. This proves that God is and was genuinely concerned for us, and wanted to see us prosper. “ Now that the common savior of all has died on our behalf, we who believe in Christ no longer die” (Athanasius 21). God wants us to have faith in Him, He wants us to live forever with Him.
God takes no pleasure in the death of sinners he wants them to turn. If one dies and have not yet received Jesus Christ into their life and repented for all their sins then it is too late. “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sin (Hebrew 10:26-27 NIV). Jesus is saying repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. God wills all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, the truth is Jesus Christ he is the way the truth and the life.
It is a personal calling for each person to gladly accept him from an eternity in hell and to show that he cares for us by rescuing us from Satan’s corruptions. In conclusion, the Gospel is who Jesus was, the meaning of his death, and his resurrection. The Gospel deepens our Christian faith and life in many ways. It offers us how to live righteously, guides us to who we are destined to be, and gives us instruction on how we can share Christ with others. Lastly, it instills in us to pray and grow our relationship with Christ.
For without the temptations of Satan, there would be no need for Christ to come to earth as a man and sacrifice himself on a cross to save us from the fiery pits of Hell. Overall, Satan is definitely necessary for the plan that God has for man, but is by no means the hero of mankind. There needs to be the temptation and testing of man’s faith, which is Satan’s roll, but the true definition of a hero is Christ, because he lived a perfect and noble life to cover for all of man which
This means that God will not save them, nor force them to believe in Him; in which they will be condemning themselves to suffer. Suffering allows people to prove their character to others. Christians understand God is entitled to do what He plays because “for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9). People are sinners by nature, but it teaches them to become an obedience of God’s ways. Christians understand that suffering is used as a tool for God’s punishments.
He speaks with authority, He is determined to say what is the truth with such couth that we may be able to understand. Unfortunately, every single human being is sinful, and will not understand in the same way Jesus does, so He spoke in parables. Explaining what we are to know in this way, we are able to comprehend His teachings, therefore being able to further the work of Christ. Jesus tells the importance of forgiving other people. He gives appropriate reasoning when dealing with confrontation, and gives hope for praying with a group of people.
God is the ultimate creator of all things. When these things, namely the human race, began their sinning ways, they were in dire need of a Savior. These wretched ways are expressed in St. Athanasius’ book On the Incarnation. Because of His loving nature, though, God came down in a human configuration through His Son, Jesus Christ, so that all might be spared from death and share in His salvation and eternal life. When God constructed the human race, He had in mind wondrous intentions for them.
Only then will they be forgiven. However, God did not take this action to be or become something of evil to those who were innocent in their wrong, He carried through this effort to purify the Earth of the corruption which was spreading throughout man. For he wants to correct the wrong and make man “Good”. Man was too spread-out, as well as corrupt, the only option left to God was to do as he did, flush man from the Earth and save those who he saw as worthy to re-establish Man. And so through this Chapter we see the vengeance and determination of God, to be right in being in such emotion, as His creation had become corrupt.
