The Son Of God

- 16. THE SON OF GOD While many people in this day and age will shy away from the deity of Christ, Brunner hits the nail on the head when he states that Jesus “is not simply a man like us, but he is God Himself” (73). Christ is the God incarnate, worthy of our worship and praise, and even while He was on earth He still deserved this praise given to Him by His followers and disciples. I like that Brunner talks about this because it gives the reader a good perspective of how we should view Jesus. When Brunner compares a man with a “1000 dollars” thinking it is not real to the gospel of Christ, He vastly underestimates the worth of the Kingdom of God....   [tags: Jesus, God in Christianity, Christianity]

Theology Is The Teaching Of The Living God

- Theology is the teaching of the living God. True theology is not entirely about knowing about God but is some something that we live out. It is both something that be observed and lived out. Life and theology are inseparable. It is through the work of the Holy Spirit that our theological construction and our practical convictions come together. Religion loses its importance when we start to approach theology as a problem that we are trying to solve, rather than with our heart of worship.

Reader Response to Chapter One of The God of Small Things

- The approach employed in the present article is binarism. Theoretically, in my opinion, binarism seems to operate at cognitive level. It pertains to value orientation in the subjective world of human beings and thereby to the world orientation. In order to define the place of a thing in the world and an individual’s association and desirability, we are forced to rely on binary approach of studying the world. Coming to literature, I discuss the binary terms of (historical) fact and fiction.

While such a statement is true as far as it goes, it does not explain fully enough who Jesus really is. The Church teaches that Jesus Christ is one person having two natures.

The Divine Command Theory Of God

- The Divine-Command Theory is a branch of Absolutism which falls right in line with the Christian perspective. Any action that God commands is morally right. An action is wrong if it is contrary to the will of God. The will of God may be found through scripture, personal revelation, tradition and reason. If one loves God, then one must be obedient to His will. Morality is based on the commands and ever unchanging character of God and if God did not exist then so it would be the same with morality....   [tags: Bible, New Testament, God, Ten Commandments]

(Genesis 3:4-5) We know, according to Genesis 1:31, that all of God’s creation was precisely as He would have it to be. There was nothing lacking in it, neither was there anything lacking in the man that He had created. His eyes were not 'shut ' in that his understanding and knowledge were not deficient.

Blakes cry for a voice

- Blake’s cry for a voice William Blake had a vision. It was a thought that changed the way poetry and writing would be viewed from here to eternity. Blake’s point of views and associations with the characters represents a change in the way the reader dictates who the victim is really and who is not. In Blake’s “The Chimney Sweeper” from the Songs of Innocence and Experience, both aspects of heaven and hell can be examined just the same as a good versus evil aspect of the two different styles of the poem....   [tags: essays research papers]

- God’s existence plays a major role in Descartes’ arguments in the Meditations, especially the Third and Fifth Mediations. Throughout this essay I will explore Descartes’ arguments on God’s existence and argue that he is not entitled to use God’s existence in this way due to the fact that his argument is circular and that he felt pressured to prove God’s existence due to personal belief and necessity. Had Descartes not proven the existence of God, he would not have be able to prove that anything else is true in life besides his own existence....   [tags: Ontology, Existence, Existence of God, Theology]

- Throughout the Gospel of John (as well as the Synoptic Gospels), Jesus is continuously showing people that He is, in fact, the Creator God. Jesus did many signs and miracles to show his close connection with the Father as well as display his deity. Generally, these sings were done in such a way as to prove to the Jews that He was God (as this was what they asked for). However, Jesus did not stop at only doing signs and miracles. He also used the phrase “I AM” to show his deity. To the modern reader, “I AM” simply seems as a phrase of explanation or possession....   [tags: bible. diety. Jesus Christ, God]

God 's Existence Of God

- God’s existence hinges on his indwelling passion for koinonia. At his very essence, the Triune God lives and breathes community. In fact, nothing exists as individualistic, not even God himself. Though the Bible contains no systematic doctrine of the Trinity, God self-discloses the mystery of his three-person nature in scripture as being distinct yet inseparable, working together for the cause of life, salvation and glorification. Nicholas Lossky explains the Trinity’s interdependence in this way: The Father and the Son sent the Spirit into the world in order that the Son may reveal to the world the love of the Father and the future action of the Spirit, who by his personal dwelling in the...   [tags: Trinity, Holy Spirit, Jesus, God]

His poems really show the reader who William Blake was as a person. He expresses his dislike for authority, the monarchy and the church, but in a subtle way.

Although in "God’s Grandeur" Hopkins does not use any specific quotations from the Bible, he does employ images that evoke a variety of biblical verses and scenes, all of which lend meaning to his poem.
