Jesus came to serve a people considerably inferior to Himself as a light to dispel darkness. The Bible tells us that we do not have to live as slaves but as sons of God and heirs to the Father's kingdom. This simply means that despite our undeserving we may turn... ... middle of paper ... ...liever now has assurance that his every sin will be forgiven dependent not on the sacrifice of an animal but on sincere repentance. God loves His people and has provided them with a way by which they can be cleansed and sanctified, making them acceptable to him. The new covenant, therefore, leads to a desire to do what is right.
In the bible, there is a strong reoccurring theme of people of poor moral character or in a position of low social status in their society making a transformation for the better within themselves after following Jesus and the word of God. When a human follows the laws and does what is asked of them, in return, the Lord is able to bless the person’s character, making them shed the skin of the negative things they may have done in the past and are still dwelling in, preforming a sort of positive reformation for their soul. Also, God never discriminates against any of his people no matter what; in his eyes everyone deserves an equal chance and a fresh start. God will save any of his creation, regardless of how bad some of the things they may have done in the past are; to Him, how we finish life is more important than how we begin it. This notion, that God can transform someone who isn’t the most righteous person into someone upstanding, appears in the Christian scriptures and also has roots within the Hebrew Scriptures; its purpose being to prove how significantly God’s presence can positively affect one’s life.
We need to stay away from the landfills as much as we can so eventually we can get rid of them all together. The benefits of compost include increased soil organic matter content, nutrients for plant growth, replacement of peat moss in potting media, reduced erosion, plant disease resistance, weed suppression and generally improved plant vigor (Barlaz 62). Instead of taking grass clippings to the trash people can leave them laying in the yard to decompose or they can use them to help make their compost. People can even make their own composting bins to use at their homes. There are several reasons why people should compost.
As Christians we are the modern day new testament of a vessel that carries and contains the spirit of God in us. Christians are Gods Ark. Therefore Christians need to spread Gods will over the Earth. ‘Jesus isn’t sitting back at ease, unconcerned about the state of o... ... middle of paper ... ... eternal life,’ As Christians our role in people’s lives should be to live as an example and to help others live to their lives to the highest standard for God. By recommending changes people can make to their lives, but by gently doing to, Christians can remain a shining light, but also a helpful one too.
Salivation is the deliverance from sin and its consequences, believed by Christians to be brought about by faith in Chris. According to Christian Belief’s, Christians believed that life is sacred and therefore they have a responsibility to others and themselves and are taught that all men should be treated with respect "Respect your father and your mother, so that you may live a long time in the land I have given you. (Exodus 20.13) Christians are taught the meaning of Salvation and that it is needed in order to be delivered, yet salvation is not so easily achieve. Christians are instructed that after death on earth, there is another life, a life where we will either burn in eternity in the fiery pits of hell or we would soar with angels
This paper will defend what Christians should mean by 1Timothy 2:3-4, “This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.” This scripture has been interpreted many ways by many theologians, but I shall defend the scripture with the knowledge and understanding of what this scripture means. (1) God desires that all men be saved because “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promises as some understand slowness, instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9 NIV). Bear in mind that our Lord patience means salvation. (2) “I have no pleasure in death of him who dies says the Lord God: therefore turn yourselves and live (Ezekiel 18:32 KJV).” (3) “Him who comes to me I will certainly not cast out.” (John 6:37 KJV) Because God loves us, His desire is for us to be saved. Jesus loved us so much that he gave his life so that we might have a right to the tree of life.
78). John Milton has a reason for presenting God this way, and that is to, ultimately, serve his initial purpose of justifying God’s actions. He explains to his readers that, while he allowed Adam and Eve to sin and fall from grace, He saw a future where they could be happy. This future, however, would not be perfect like the future they could have had in the garden of Eden. God saw a future where the Son would make His way to the earth and save Adam and Eve.
“On our planet we are the self-conscious aspect of the body of God, the part of the divine body able to work with God, the spirit who creates and redeems us, to bring about the liberation and healing of the earth and all its creatures” (McFague, 124). These beings should be taken care of because they too come from God, and I think that part of our job is to be able to care for other creatures and treat them well. I’m not against killing animals for meat, as long as it does not cause the animal to endure too much pain. However, I cannot stand the thought of animal abuse and I feel as though that is something that should not be tolerated whether the animals are raised to be killed or not. “While our analysis of ecological sin will focus on the more neglected areas of our relations with other animals and nature, proper relations with our nearest and dearest kin, our own species, must be first in consideration and importance” (McFague, 116-117).
In reality, green manufacturing is vital in preserving our natural resources for next generations. It may be costly and requires a lot of determination but many companies have taken the initiative to go green. Besides that, manufacturers also should refuse to create waste, reduce it, reuse resources and finally is recycle. This is because it can saving the company’s money and also saving energy that had been used. Therefore, we also must start thinking of the results of our actions and begin fulfilling the most important purpose that is preserving the earth from future destruction.
He will not only reconstruct our bodies, but he will make the whole earth perfect again. The Garden of Eden was on this earth, heaven will be like the Garden, on this earth. God named us care takers of this earth, we need to stop thinking of heaven as some faraway place Jesus is going to bring us too, but Jesus will come here, and as Write states, He will not come and just improve it, but he will come and make into the perfect earth that represents the glory of God. This is hard for a lot of people to wrap their heads around. Everyone wants to think about leaving this world
