Our own ethics must be built on revealed truth. Over time the Church has spoken out on moral issues. Each teaching of the Church is built on some more basic ethical truth. Each of these truths is built ultimately on the Ten Commandments, which originated with God Himself.
Neglect the “Nations of the World” and instead focus on the “Nation of God”. Christians path in life can be boiled down to giving their full allegiance to the Kingdom of God. In doing so they need to denounce the coercive and violent ideologies of the natural world. Translating this to the Christian call to action, we must follow the Kingdom of God in transforming the world, rather than using politics as a means towards such a transformation. This is based upon his destroying of the notion that America is a Christian Nation: “What gives this understanding of the kingdom of God such strong emotional force is the long standing myth that America is a 'Christian nation. '
Each person will live their lives differently based upon their worldviews. Christians will base their lives on serving God while a Marxist-Leninist will stay convinced there is no God to serve. A Christian worldview is a worldview in which Christians believe that God created the world, He made humanity, sent His only son to die on the cross for us, gave us the Bible to show us how to live our lives, and will one day come when the world ends. The theological view of Christianity is Theism. The Theism that Christians believe in is Trinitarian, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
God sent his son to earth in human form. He suffered and died on a cross so that “born again Christian believers” would not have to suffer for their sin in Hell when they die. Most religions have belief in many gods, statues, or in a god that is dead, but Christians believe in a God that not only walked on earth as a human and lived a perfect and sinless life, he also died and rose again. Christians serve, love, and worship a living God. No other religions have a living God.
He relates them all back to God and what presence he has in each one. For example, much like Christianity, the Jewish faith recognizes God as their leader. Their actions revolve around living contently with him and his word and building an important relationship with God that defines everything. Godsey then discusses the problems associated with fundamentalist religions. Godsey wrote, “If we are ever to build bridges, we will have to find the courage within our circles of faith to reject fundamentalist religion as a fearful and destructive force.” He believes that fundamentalism separates people’s foundations of faith and shows the evilness of the

Mohammed is seen as one who wrote down the revelation entrusted to him by angel Gabriel; Jesus is one, who was himself the definitive revelation of God (Murad). Classic Christian theology holds that, as God incarnate, Jesus reveals God and makes restoration to him possible through his saving death and resurrection. The Islamic criticism of the doctrine of Trinity is a more fundamental concern about the identity of Jesus Christ himself (McGrath 204).
I also believe that Jesus was created to right Adam sins. Adam brought struggle and pain to all mankind through his sins condemning us all, and God put Jesus on earth to free us from sin and allow us to be one with God once again.
The Idea of Morality Cannot Work Without the Existence of God Morality is the set of concepts about wha tis good or bad, right or wrong, in human charater or conduct. God demands that moral judgements are universal and based on religion. However, other schools of thought, e.g. the ideology of Anarchy, claim that if this 'morality made by god' is the case, then 'each person is his own god'. We must first understand how morality 'works' and then see if this method of working is possible without the existence of God.
Luther’s reason for this if we earned grace then God would be in dept to us(97). Next he has 2 paragraphs on the “Human weakness” which is to do the active righteousness(89). “Law until Christ” is saying that we had to follow the laws given by Mosses because they were from God until Christ came along and broke away from those laws 2 worlds says that there is an earthly world, one with laws, and a heavenly world, infinite. The earthly world, which has, laws, the active righteousness, and is limited. While the Heavenly world is the ruler of the earthly not the other way around, and the giver of faith, but that faith most be accepted or rejected by us.
Islam teaches that in order to accomplish a true peace of mind and surety of heart, one must submit to Allah and live according to divinely law. Christianity teaches being sinful can never inherit eternal life in the presence of God as a result of our first parents, Adam and Eve, as well as our own personal sin. Traditionally, it is viewed as Christianity and Islam have nothing in common conducting research on the two religions. People can now see the similarities and difference between the in the two. Christians believe in the Trinity of God being the father, son and holy spirit.
