The relationship between man and God is a long and complex journey that has evolved for centuries. This divine and omniscient being has been a center piece for peoples' lives around the world. This single being is so powerful that he is able to make the sick feel strong and the poor feel rich. One being is worshipped around the world for his divine status. But what if he isn't as superior to humans as the world thinks? In the classic biblical works of literature, The Book of Job and Genesis, a new interpretation of God is presented in a form that is human in his relationship and actions with humans.
The individual must also love Him. Emerson states, “Love, which is the essence of God, is not for levity, but for the total worth of man.” (1518) You cannot love God without loving yourself and vice versa. Where there is love, there is trust. God created society; God created us; we must trust and love all of creation. “My friends have come to me unsought. The great God gave them to me,” (1452) says Emerson. A gift granted by God is worth as much love as one shows himself. “I find them, or rather, not I, but the Deity in me and in them, both deride and cancel the thick walls of individual character.” (1453) Society can become jovial and loving when the trust and love transcends the physical and becomes part of God. When we are all in tune and play our notes, the chords sound wonderful and a song plays
I have learned that I am made in the image of God himself and he would not treat someone, speak to others or think about someone in a disrespectful manner. God would do to them what he would want done to him. I need to do the same thing to others as I would want them to do to me. I believe that God has a purpose for everyone and I need to look at the other person as someone God has placed in my path to show His love for them and to tell them about God’s salvation. God wants me to be respectful and to keep my thoughts pure towards others at all times. I have learned this through the Question of Morality/Ethics in my biblical worldview.
The Bible has many teachings of Jesus, that show what we as Christians can learn from and apply it to our lives. In Matthew 5:43-48, Jesus tells us to love our enemies. It’s easy to love the same people who love and care for us, however, loving someone who hates you is a difficult task. We all want to feel appreciated and valuable. When someone makes us feel worthless or unloved, the last thing we want to do is to show them love. Jesus also tells us to pray for people who wrong us which is just as hard, if not harder than the prior command to love our enemies. Jesus’ point in this teaching is to call us to be more like God by having an unconditional love for everyone. He holds us to a high standard in Matthew 5:48 when he commands us to “Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly father is perfect” (Thurston, B. B., (1987) para 6). How does loving our enemies relate to other
3. Paul says what everybody has to do to stay away from the evil and sin, and closer to the Lord. (6:14-16)
The bible teaches us many things about God. From Genesis and Exodus we can learnwhat the Judeo-Christian view of God was. Genesis shows us that God made the sun, the moon,the earth and every living thing. During the days of creation God made all things good. On theseventh day of creation God rested and declared all he made to be very good (Genesis 1:31). God created human beings in his own image. We as humans can be certain of our owndignity and self worth because we have been created in the image of God. The book of Genesisshows us that people disobey God by choosing to do wrong. Even great bible heros failed Godand disobeyed him. The bible teaches us that God is forgiving. God has many attributes. God makes no mistakes and this is wisdom. God is infinite, heknows
The way that you treat, think about, and speak to others should be in a way that is consistent with biblical teachings. In both Matthew and Luke, we are taught that we are to “Do to others as you would have them do to you.” (Luke 6:31). If we wish to be treated fairly, we should treat others fairly. In 1 Corinthians, Paul tells us that we should look to him as an example because he looks to Christ as his example. If we try to be as much like Christ in our thoughts and actions, we will treat others kindly, lovingly, and welcoming.
Matthew 7:21 is what comes to mind. God tells us to treat others as you want them to treat you. God has created me in his own image, and I need to always remember that I may be the one and only chance for someone to see God through my actions. Be quick to forgive. Show unconditional love.
Question 1 Our beliefs are much more likely to be true if they are based on _______. Correct Answer: evidence
Either way the bible is read, people should get the same thing out of it, that they should be a good, law-abiding group of individuals and without the belief in God there wouldn’t be this book and without this book the world wouldn’t have this order today.
Other relevance worldviews about this teaching was that, treating each other with respect and dignity will help to foster unity among people and make people to live in harmony as God intended for us that He made in His own image should live. This teaching also encourages us to know how God instructed us to use our tongue. He said that, we should not use our tongue to say evil things to one another or curse, because we are His likeness and we not bad in His sight but good. (Genesis 1:31).
Our God is loving, kind and merciful, but there is another side to His personality, the side that defends and fights for His people. Paul declares we must know the “goodness and severity of God.” To understand the full character of God we must read the entire Bible. God is a lover of His creation and He is a warrior who fights for those whom He loves. The author makes an excellent point that since we are made in His image we must take on every aspect of the character
Lastly Jesus teaches us about chapter 5 verses 43-48, which explains that you should love your neighbor, and love your enemies. Pray for the people that mistreat you, by doing that you will be acting as a child of God. If you love only that loves you, what 's really the point? How does that make you different from anybody else? Jesus explains you are to be perfect like God is perfect.
The gospel according to Matthew is full of the Lord’s messages of love, how you should love people, and the types of people you should love if you follow the messages and teachings of Jesus. This gospel also provides an outline of the way people who seek to be a part of the Catholic faith should live their lives. Focusing specifically on love and how you should treat other people, Jesus gives precise directions on how we should approach and deal with others, especially those who wrong us. One of the instructions Jesus provides for us through Matthew is, “But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven;” (Matthew 5:44-45). The word of Jesus is very clear here, that we should love all those around us, our neighbors and even those who wish the worst on us. His message becomes even more clear when
10 Continuing his appeal, Paul mentions who it is for: his son Onesimus, who became his son during his imprisonment. “Son” here is, again, a figurative word relating to the spiritual connections
