Analysis Of ' What We Need And Its ' Focus On Sin And The Consequences Of Sin

- ... We as humans set personal goals, often without asking ourselves how we should reach that goal. Will there be any wrong doing. Sure we make a list, with some form of order, and we stick to that list to reach that goal. However, do we stop to think if we will commit a sin to reach that goal. We are so focused on winning the prize, we don’t even realize that ultimately we fall short of God’s will because we stray away from it. As stated in the text, if we view the Ten Commandments as our standard of being more like God, how many of us would actually be living in sin....   [tags: Christianity, Jesus, Sin, Salvation]

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. After a period of time, the Father had made the ultimate sacrifice to show humanity that he sincerely loved them and to guide them back to him: he sent his son, Jesus, to earth. As Jesus preached to his unique and special creation, he was punished and sent to die on a cross as punishment for pretending to be a part of God; however, this was in Jesus’ plan as once he was resurre...   [tags: Jesus, Christianity, Original sin, Heaven]

The Impeccability of Jesus Christ

- The Impeccability of Jesus Christ The New Testament authors had no qualms about declaring that Jesus was truly human and telling us that Jesus committed no sin. Bible passages such as 2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 4:15, 1 Peter 2:22 and 1 John 3:5 “witness that He [Jesus] did not give in to temptation, nor violate the moral standards of God, nor was He inconsistent with the nature of his character.” That is, Jesus was sinless. It is vital to our theology that Jesus was sinless. For only if Jesus was sinless could His death have been a vicarious substitution and fulfil God’s redemptive plan for man....   [tags: Bible Christianity Religion Jesus Christ Essays]

What Does Jesus Christ Say About God 's Word?

- ... In Mark (10:45), Jesus is portrayed as a suffering servant of God. We learn that Jesus came among man to serve, not to be served. Jesus was and is inspiring us to do the same. The message of the Gospel of Mark is that only through Jesus’ suffering, death and resurrection can we fully understand who He is. The Gospel of Luke tells us that the Kingdom of God is near and that we should follow the example of Jesus and bring the good news of salvation to all. Luke tells us that God’s concern extends to everyone, not just to those who are good but also to those who have lost their way....   [tags: New Testament, Jesus, Christianity, Gospel]

The Birth Of Jesus Christ

- ... (Romans 3:23; 1 peter 3:18). How could Jesus be born of one with a sinful nature and be a perfect Savior, be a perfect high Priest, be a Perfect Mediator, be a perfect Sacrifice, be a perfect King and Lord. Every one of us that were born of a sinful man, inherited the Adamic nature of our sinful parents. If Jesus was born of a sinful woman, He would have also inherited the Adamic sinful nature that would have made Him imperfect and unworthy to save humanity. For the bible said all have sinned, every human being have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)....   [tags: Jesus, New Testament, Christianity]

Finally, redemption, which is “God’s final victory over sin and death; it is restored and intimate relationship with God.” Soteriology is the study of salvation, which is a Christian doctrine with a wide diversity, because of the many theological traditions surrounding it.

The Temptation of Jesus

- This passage of the temptation of Jesus is by far one of the most sacred of stories told in the gospels. The reason being, is because the story could not have come from anyone else, but Jesus. Jesus was the only present at this moment of temptation, so it must have at some time been passed down to his disciples (Barclay). In this particular telling of the story, it is written by Luke. Luke was a Gentile, which is significant because all of the other New Testament writers were Jews. According to Colossians 4:14, Luke was a doctor....   [tags: christians, gentiles, gospels]

Jesus: A Friend to Outcasts and Sinners

Whether it is in school, or neighborhoods, or in sports today, Jesus certainly wanted to relate to all but, it seems the people who had already established themselves solidly in this world wanted little change.
