Humanity : God 's Own Image, And An Expression Of God

- Humanity: I believe humanity is made in God’s own image, and is special and unique in all of creation. First, the crowning work of God’s creation is in that he made them male and female. As a result, gender in humanity “ought” to be viewed as a gift and an expression of God’s goodness. Also, I believe that sin is not by God’s design in the “nature” of humanity. This fact is evident in that it was not in the “original” make up of man. In creation humanity was without sin and enjoyed a “free will” that was gifted to man by God Himself....   [tags: Christian terms, Christianity, Heaven, Sin]

This fault concerns an action or a specific incident, which is thought to "hurt" or "offend" God 's holiness and his eminent dignity.

- Many Christians avoid discussions on the afterlife simply because they have absolutely no clue what the future holds. This is a common excuse that Christians give, that nobody can possibly know what is going to happen. However, I believe that this gives Christians easy, reconcilable way of taking the lazy route, not actually giving much thought to the future. Both Christians and non-Christians consistently look to the future to motivate themselves to perform in the present. For example, a student looks to the future where he knows there is a possibility to graduate, which gives him motivation to write a paper for Core 150....   [tags: Christianity, Jesus, Kingdom of God, Heaven]

Yet, this argument is valid and shares just how remarkable the study of literature can be. Milton wrote his tale of the fall of man in the 1674. His masterpiece is an example of how ideas of a society change with time.
