Because of these gifts — both what Christ has done for us on the cross and the future promise of perfect fellowship with God for all eternity — we are free from the old restrictions and requirements of the law, and we are called to present our entire lives as acts of worship to the Lord (see Romans 11:36-12:1). Jesus frees us from the law so that we are free to love Him more — not as condemned rebels or slaves, but as sons and daughters.

Throughout my entire life, my Mom has said, “You’re blessed.” I was born in the middle of a war and there were several times when I could have died, but I didn’t. So that was a big thing for me. My Mom attributes [my life] to God guiding our family and [bringing us] to America. Even not dying the first few months I was in America was a big thing. God has blessed me, and when some stupid shit happens, I know I did something wrong and am going away from the Ten Commandments (Interview 3, 20:20).
Orpheus was the Beethoven of the Greek world, everybody loved his music. Everywhere he went, people listened to his music and loved it. Eurydice was Orpheus’ number one stalker/fan. They fell in love but Eurydice died one day, from a snake bite. Orpheus’ mad love for Eurydice ended up sending him to Tartarus and all he had to do was to bring Eurydice out of the underworld without looking at her. However, he was filled with doubt and he turned to look at her, losing her forever.

Good and effective thinking concerning ones patriarchal blessing either studying or remembering promised blessings can and will change a person’s life if they will allow it.

Plato’s Euthyphro Pamela Gaither PHI208: Ethics and Moral Reasoning Instructor: Constance Dolecki 10/14/13 In the Euthyphro, Socrates and Euthyphro discuss the concept of piety/holiness. This essay will not only test my ability to recognize and engage philosophical concepts and analysis, but also brings me into the dialogue as a participant, asking me to create my
Survival in this world depends on God. We get closer to God through the study of his holy word. We get to know Jesus who gave his life so we can be saved. This is the good news for this dying world.
It was long ago, the Earth was covered in ice. Before, life on Earth was prosperous. The people sang and danced while eating a plethora of foods. Then, with a sudden burst of cold air, the snow came. Once, there was a city called Babintok or, the city of sins. This city was nestled in the middle of a vast desert. The people there were evil and did not worship any god.
In continuance of Romans chapter 5 verse 20, the next sentence of this verse reads as follows: “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound”, notice, the beginning portion of the sentence as stated just before the comma is implemented, it says, “But where sin abounded. What
In Plato’s Euthyphro, Socrates and Euthyphro had a conversation about piety. During the conversation, Socrates raised a question which was a challenge to the Euthyphro’s definition of piety. Also, this question is a challenge to the theists’ view of divine command theory. I agree with the arbitrariness objection which succeeds
When Adam and Eve ate from the forbidden tree, sin entered the world and that which was once good became corrupted. From that moment, we were separated from God. Yet because we were made in His image and He love us so much, He gave up his one and only son to die on the cross for our sins. One of God’s attributes is His benevolence, which means that He loves and cares about all His creation. He is also merciful, which means that He is very compassionate and tender-hearted towards us. I mention these specific attributes to emphasize the fact that these attributes were also present in the person of Christ. Jesus said, “He who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14:9), meaning that if we want to personally “know the love, the holiness, the power
