The Christian Worldview Of Sin

- Society may not see sin as sin today, but it is still a reality, evil is rampant and progressing. An explanation is needed for the evil that is everywhere in the world and that explanation is sin. The modern view that we will progress because of our knowledge and reason and move away from evil into a utopian era is no longer valid and has been discarded. Therefore, in the new era of postmodernism a Christian worldview of sin has to be proclaimed boldly everywhere, to the world of intolerant tolerance, especially because of the fact that without sin there is no reason for the Christ the Savior....   [tags: New Testament, Christianity, Jesus, Sin]

Doctrine Of Sin : Sin

- Doctrine of Sin Sin is elusive. It hides behind our motives and intentions. Sin will parade in a garment that looks stunningly beautiful but when uncovered there is nothing but ugliness and wickedness hiding underneath. "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean.” ( Mt....   [tags: Adam and Eve, Original sin, Serpent, Jesus]

Falling Away : A Life Of Sin

- If a person has rejected being “enlightened,” then they have “fallen away” (6:6) into a life of sin. In context, it appears the hypothetical person has departed from the whole “enlightened” experience, only nominally attached through the “basic teachings” (6:1). Attridge sees “fallen away” not referring “to sin in general, but to the specific sin of apostasy.” Falling away is certainly a rejection of blessings brought about through being a believer, which Alan Mulgridge designates as the “renunciation of the covenant relationship with God.” Yet the term appears to suggest willful sinful tendencies on the part of the Believer....   [tags: Sin, Repentance, Jesus, Christian terms]

God Is Not The Stain Of Sin

- If there was not a literal first pair of human beings, and thus not a literally first sin and fall, are people still born with a need for redemption. Or are people born essentially good, and then choose evil. Could someone other than Jesus choose to live a sinless life, or do all humans still carry the stain of sin. This question is crucially related to both the image of God in humanity and also the work of Christ.

Jesus, God, And God

- In the beginning of humanities’ short existence, the almighty, loving God had purposefully created two people and a perfect world for them to conquer. Not understanding the gift bestowed on them, Adam and Eve had betrayed God and caved into their sinful nature by eating the forbidden fruit found in the Garden of Eden.

They aimed to abide by the law of God, but as soon as something shiny, pleasurable, and of earthly value flashed before their eyes, their obedience to God’s commands went out the window.

- Does it mean that the sin of a Christian will immediately open a door for the devil and give access for oppression. God hates sin, no matter how small the sin might be, it is still unacceptable to God. Human beings, whether they are believers in Christ or not are never completely free from sin. The difference is that believers in Christ have been forgiven of the original sin that came through Adam and Eve.

Is Sin Or Sin?

- Sin can be defined in many ways, but it creates a separation from God. There is a war that occurs inside people. That war is between one’s flesh and the Holy Spirit. Satan was the originator of sin because pride caused him to sin against God. Adam and Eve were the doors that allowed sin to enter the world. Sin causes death and without a savior, it is impossible to cleanse oneself. Once sin is conceived, it takes an atonement to wipe away one’s sin.

The Gospel Message Of Jesus Christ

- Introduction When studying the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, many scholars regard the book of Romans as the most important of the apostle Paul’s letters. (Knight & Ray, 2005) This is perhaps because it contains the most in-depth exploration of Christian theology, namely justification through faith in Jesus Christ. (Hinson & Towns, 2013)The letter, especially chapters one through eight, contains a summary of what embodies a Christian worldview. Since Paul wrote to both the Jewish and Gentile believers in Rome, he provided for them, as well as readers today, a biblical perspective that answers questions about the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and culture....   [tags: Christianity, New Testament, Jesus, Bible]

New Signs Of Who Jesus

- The New Testament encapsulates what the title depicts, new signs of who Jesus is and evidence of what humankind’s future will bring, due to whether they chose life with Him or not.

The four gospels tell to story of Jesus’ life and his teachings he gave while on the earth making it possible for there to be a true example of Christ-like faith. The proposition that there are differences in the story of Jesus and in his teachings seems to question the basis upon which the Christian faith is found upon.
