A Biblical Response to Society

- Sociology is an extremely valuable tool in understanding how society and individuals interact, function, develop, and change. The study of sociology seeks to make sense of what occurs in front and behind the scenes in a society. For the purpose of clarification, society is defined as a “comprehensive, territorially based social grouping that includes all the social institutions required to meet basic human needs” (Popenoe, 86). We live in a secular world and in a society permeated with sin. As Christians we need to have a proper, Biblical response to society and the world around us....   [tags: Sociology, Society, Culture]

The Biblical Teaching Of Marriage

- Since the very beginning of time there has been marriage. The origin of marriage comes from Genesis 2:18, where God said that it is not right that man should be alone. God has always been about relationships and when he instutitued the marriage of one man and one woman he believed that it was important that we be in relationship with other, and in this case His disire was for us to have a wife. Regardless of the intention that God had for marriage when he ordained it, too many people have made it to be something of a fad or a trend....   [tags: Marriage, Divorce, Alimony, Family]

Biblical Authority : The Bible

- Biblical Authority Inspiration can be defined as God’s ongoing and dynamic revelation of truths to humans in order for us to know how to live and deal with spiritual and ethical encounters, by instilling wisdom and understanding of his word. Since humans wrote the Bible there is room for idiosyncrasies, intelligence, historic context, social context, and geographical context to influence scripture. However, God’s revelation of himself and his character prevails through the Bible. There is a dimension of God that can only be reached through personal encounters of His truths, through prayerful reflection of the Bible....   [tags: Bible, Moses, Israelites, Canaan]

The Biblical Definition Of Marriage

- Like most facets of spirituality, the biblical definition of marriage is unique and personal. Boiling down such an experienced-based practice into a definition of several sentences is troublesome. However, articulating the theological meaning of marriage allows Christ-followers to discover the important spiritual aspects of matrimony and to discern whether same-sex unions belong in the Christian church. Although it appears as if same-sex relationships directly conflict with the articulation of marriage given in most accounts, I contend that same-sex relationships satisfy the biblical definition of matrimony....   [tags: Homosexuality, Same-sex marriage, Marriage]

Two Theories of Biblical Counseling

- The book “How to Help People Change” written by author Jay E. Adams was very inspiring to me. It appears to be based totally on the Word of God, which I also support as my personal approach to counseling. Psalms 119:24 King James Version “Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors.” Adams suggests that the process of change can only take place from the inside out (heart) and by using Christian principles. The heart has to be changed in order for a person’s behavior to change. In Psalms 51:6 the Bible states “Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.” When a person knows and conceives the righteous thing to do, the...   [tags: Counseling ]
