Christianity went through a lot of major Christian movements, but one movement that was important in the twentieth-century was the Ecumenical movement. The Ecumenical movement involved three of the major branches of Christianity, which are Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, and Protestant. The Ecumenical movement was used to restore the unity and faith between the Christian branches and world. It also tried to mobilize Christians to confront social problems of poverty and injustice (Young). The branches

Why Christians Should Go on Mission Trips Mission trips are defined as “the process of Christians from reached people groups sharing the gospel with unreached people groups” (Lull). God has given us the commandment to go and preach to people who have not heard about him numerous times in the Bible. One example is Matthew 28:19-20 which says, “Go therefore and make disciples into all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all
23, 25; 6:1, 8. 199].” The Galatian Christians had begun in the arena of the Spirit (3:3) and, as far as Paul is concerned, it is in this arena of the Spirit that they must to continue to walk (5:16). However, the train of thought throughout the moral exhortation in terms of the emphasis on the Spirit seems to suggest that “the terminology ‘walking in the Spirit’ serves as a definitive expression of Paul’s talk of ethical living.” The command to ‘walk’ in the Spirit is Paul’s primary terminology
Missions have always revolved around Christians reaching out to others and living out their lives to glorify God. Jesus displayed this evangelical mission throughout his ministry in the early church when he was living with the disciples. Through reading different articles I have discovered that the new emerging church in the postmodern context has a kingdom view of missions. The kingdom of God is the key to missions which is portrayed in the early church and in Jesus ministry; it is also an evident
contemplation on the Word. This contemplation is of critical significance in the theology of Calvinism. Alternatively, it is insufficient for Christians to merely just read the Word or simply hear the Word, the process of spiritual hydration must be accompanied with a deep determination to contemplate the Word, in tandem with both being read or heard. A negligent Christian in this area ensures the potential of many critical doctrinal errors to creep in. Our thoughts begin to rust with disuse. The Word must
into life of the Greeks, Romans, Jews and Christians in earlier times. I would also suggest this book to people that are struggling with the historical accuracy of Christian faith. I have heard atheist say that they do not believe in a man named Jesus, however they believe Julius Caesar existed. So I think that it could help those people to see that there is historical evidence to prove the people of the Bible did exist. Lastly, I would suggest Christians to read this book so that they can get a deeper
Exegesis of Romans 12: 1-2 In this exegesis I am going to say about what I believe on the passage founded in Roman 13:1-2 related to “Paul understands of worship and non conformity with the world” Firstble, let me say that an exegesis paper provides a standardised, scholarly and critical interpretation of a written text. The following exegesis examines Paul’s words in Romans 12: 1-2, Paul’s letter to the church at Rome.“Therefore I urge your brethren, by the mercies of God to
be the Son of God, the three personal God, the relationship of God and time, the cost of being a Christian, how God works to turn us into image of Christ, why Christian growth is both hard and easy, and also what he thinks about our old personalities before becoming Christians. These are all relative topics that apply to us and our daily lives. Learning and understanding this book can help a Christian tremendously in forming a deeper relationship with God. Chapter One is a discussion about life
Christian’s theory of the world, used for living in the world is panentheism. The term panentheism in Greek means “all (is) in God.” Panentheism aims to do justice both to transcendence (God is beyond or more than the world) and immanence (God is in the world). To clarify, God is transcendent can be shown by two transcendent characteristics love and grace. In the Old Testament, God’s love is concentrated on his chosen people of Israel. His love is seen as He initiates a relationship with humans.
