Christian

...As far as I can tell, after thirty years of experiencing God and life as a "Christian" and after thinking about this experience from several perspectives, a Christian is... a person who has a personal heart-to-heart relationship with the living God, characterized by warm and active acceptance on God's part; our honesty and dependence on the activities of Jesus Christ. Let's look at this a little more closely. "A personal heart-to-heart relationship": The point of this is to exclude 'religious' relationships, in which an 'object' is revered 'from afar' but not approached in a personal way. God is indeed an 'awesome entity' but he is nonetheless a Person. A personal relationship is a reciprocal relationship, not a one-way deal. There is real interaction, real disclosure, real closeness that develops. The 'heart-to-heart' aspect intends to convey the honesty and openness of this relationship. There are no 'games' that can be played with an all-knowing God(!), no secrets withheld, no area of life concealed. (The interesting thing about this is that, even though God knows all about an area of our life, we might NEVER open it up to Him in discussion, in our efforts to 'hide' from His feedback!) I cannot emphasize strongly enough the personal character of this relationship. I see so many aberrations and stunted-growth versions of it. It is not a formal relationship, a primarily legal one, or even simply a 'creature-Creator' relationship. (I find the human tendency to relegate...

Christians and the Environment

...Stephen R. Mink Christians and the Environment Liberty University Abstract: The environment is degrading mostly due to human causes. Christians have contributed to the problem, whether they realize it or not, and must become part of the solution. Awareness should be raised among people and in the church about environmental problems and things that can be done prevent further damage. Many small steps can be taken daily, such as recycling and saving power, which add up as more people do them. Causes, like the Evangelical Environmental Initiative, can be joined where Christians can volunteer their time and support. There are many things that cause problems and the sooner we rally support for environmental protection the sooner these problems can be remedied. This generation is paying for pollution but future generations, especially the poor, will suffer far worse if nothing is done. Christians should tend to the earth God created and have hearts of service which give a testimony for Christ. Paper: God gave mankind dominion over the earth He created. Over the past few generations humanity has failed in caring for the environment and many lack the initiative to make a change. Issues such as pollution, wastefulness, and attitudes of indifference must be addressed in hopes of reversing and preventing further environmental damage. Many Christians volunteer their time and support to combat these problems but there are those who bear a stigma against environmentalism......

Christian /Counseling

...intriguing a very intellectual writer and has a way of convincing the reader with his philosophies. I will discuss the four perspectives: Goal of Christian Counseling, Basic Concepts, Basic Strategy, and Developing a Counseling Program in the local Church as recorded in Effective Biblical Counseling. Then will Compare and Contrast the assigned articles listed in the course. Goal of Christian Counseling Dr. Crabb, stated, “many of us place top priority not on becoming Christ like in the middle of our problems but on finding happiness. People want to be happy but the paradoxical truth is that you will never be happy if you are concerned primarily with becoming happy. Your goal must be in every circumstance to respond biblically, to put the Lord first, to seek to behave, as He would want you to. The wonderful truth is that as we devote all our energies to the task of becoming what Christ wants us to be, He fills us with joy unspeakable and peace far surpassing what the world offers. We must reject the goal of becoming happy and adopt the goal of becoming more like the Lord” (Crabb, 1977, p20). Most people look for happiness in tangible things that you can feel touch or see and still find that they are coming up short and unhappy after the high has settled. As Christians our primary goal should be to trust in the Lord with all of our hearts and lean not into our own understanding acknowledge him and he will......

A Spiritual Growth Essential - The Church Often, when dealing with new Christians, it seems as though they don't hold a very high regard for the Church of Jesus Christ. I think that they are mistaking the religious schemes of mankind for the Church of Jesus Christ. They have seen those that have used religion for their own personal gain, and have decided that they want nothing to do with that kind of religion, and I don't blame them. The truth is that the Church of Jesus Christ is not about religion at all, it's about relationship. You see religion is that which mankind does to make one feel good about himself toward God.

...How to be a Christian? Becoming a Christian is probably the greatest thing you can do when you give your life to God. Giving your life to Christ can change your life around when you think it can’t. Becoming a child of God is amazing because his power is unmatchable and his love for you is unimaginable. God gave us the Bible our sword to fight back against sin to make us the best of us we can be. God also gave us the gift of salvation by sending his only son to die for our sins. In order to become a Christian you have to be saved or ask Jesus Christ to come into your heart to save your soul & forgive your sins. People ask how you obtain salvation. It’s really easy actually in fact it’s so easy that it’s like eating a snickers bar you open it up and enjoy the awesome flavors. But first you have to understand why we have to admit or confess our sins. Question is how do you confess your sins before God? God gave us the Bible to understand what sin is and why he hates sin. In the book of Romans or the book of salvation God talks about confessing your sins before him and if you mean whole heartily with no doubt in you and you trust your life in him BAM!!! That’s all you have to do it’s that simple to accept Jesus into your life. Of course you’re going to feel amazing joy flow within you and feel like you can do something forever. I remember when I got saved July 2, 2013 I felt like I could run forever and not stop just keep running for Jesus. People make it hard to......

...Sufferings of the Christians Text: 1 Peter 1:6-9 Theme: The Will of God in our trials and sufferings Introduction: * “In these you greatly rejoice”, (v.3-5) Peter is referring to what Christ has given to believers. * We are to rejoice because of God’s abundant mercy (v.3). There may be trials, but God didn’t leave us. The following are examples of God’s mercy: 1. 1 Corinthian 15- “the resurrection of Christ will give us hope”. 2. Inheritance in heaven. 3. For keeping us daily. * Rejoice- a kind of emotion that will lift you to the air. In times of trials a Christian can enjoy. Happiness is different from joy, happiness is more on the positive things that is happening in your life… things and events that is in favour of you, but rejoicing is different because it comes from God, even in times of suffering you will rejoice. * Matthew 5:12- when you are persecuted because of your love to Christ then REJOICE! What are the truths that the bible teaches us about trials? 1. Trials are temporary- v.6, 2 Corinthians 4:17 2. Trials are timely- Matthew 16:21, as a follower of Christ, suffering is a must. 2 Timothy 3:12; 1 Peter 4:12 3. Trials are terrible or difficult- yes indeed it’s difficult, but it does not mean that we should enjoy and act like we are not affected by it. * If you refuse trials it simply means that you do not want blessings from God anymore. 4. Trials will transform us- many Christians had testified that......

...Churches, their spread throughout Africa and discuss their contribution to the spread of Christianity in Africa and especially the interior of the continent. Hereafter referred to as AICs, they are usually identified as; African Independent Churches, African Initiated Churches, or African initiated churches. The AICs, represent well over 10,000 independent Christian denominations in Africa. African Independent Churches are found in every region and country in Africa. The common thread uniting all of the Christian churches is that they were all established by African initiative rather than by foreign missionary agendas. Even though many of these churches have traditional denominational names and relationships, they are not defined by these traditions. These churches emphasize that they are established and led by Africans. In addition, all AICs place emphasis on the biblical warrant to include African cultural norms into their modes of worship, theology, and practice, though to varying degrees. Some scholars claim that African Independent Churches are syncretistic in that they combine indigenous African religion with Christian beliefs, but the degree to which this occurs is varying. Regardless, a process of acculturation between Christianity and African culture does occur. AICs have also demonstrated a strong missionary tendency in that most of the spread of Christianity throughout Africa in the 20th century can be attributed to African Independent Churches. The......

Christian Worldview

...A Christian Worldview Andrea Fitzgerald APOL 104 Liberty University PART I: What is a worldview? What is a “worldview”? Well it is just that a view of the world. The way we see and think about life, death, education, faith, world, money, morals, values, and every other aspect of life. There are many things that influence a person’s worldview. Our culture and religion are major influences on how we view life. When we think about life in very many questions come to mind. Some of us tend to ask things like who are we and how did we get here? How should we live? Why are we here? What happens when we die? Is there life after this? The answers to those questions will vary depending on the type of worldview you hold at that point in time. Word Count 125 PART II: A biblical/Christian worldview (what is believed?) The Question of Origin – (How did life begin? How did mankind come into existence?) We have all most likely questioned where and how we came about as humans. The answers you come across would be different depending on the type of worldview you and your personal beliefs. One of the most popular theories is that of Darwin. This theory is taught nationwide in most public school systems. Another is the Biblical creation theory. To get a better understanding about the biblical creation the person studying should start with reading into the story of the creation in Genesis chapter 1.

...While many opinions seem harmless, others can be cruel, unjust, or harmful to reputations. Some opinions can build up such a wall that all hope for the light of another viewpoint seems lost. Culture and Lifestyle •Christian Science •Christianity •Religion •.My dictionary says that the primary sense of the word “opinion” involves “fixing in the mind.” It goes on to say that it is “the judgment which the mind forms of any proposition, statement, theory or event.” When we are going to vote for people or proposals in government, civic events, or even church, or we need to make a decision in our own lives, how can we make sure that we are resting our judgments on a certain and solid basis – on something more permanent than human opinion? One simple way is to begin with prayer to God, who is the Mind of each of us. We can always sincerely ask God how to think about any issue that crosses our path. This prayer may lead us to actively turn away from what circumstances are telling us about a person or situation, and to drop some fixed ideas we have habitually clung to. Today as yesterday, God, our true Parent, tells us of the constant and all-powerful good that belongs to each of us and is our only real experience as His children. Prayer can help us feel the power of this message, even in the midst of conflicting opinions. When we want to make the best decision – to follow our highest sense of what is right – we can prayerfully acknowledge each person’s oneness with Mind as the......

Worldview of a Christian

...example, in high school there is a new student from another country. We assume that because this student is from a different country that he is smart, which may not be true. The new student is a symbol for a worldview, it shows that we as people judge a situation and make what we want to make of it, but do not see it for what the situation actually is. To me a worldview is being able to put yourself in someone else’s shoes and imagining you growing up in a different country with a different family, belief and education. (Word count 132) A biblical worldview is something that every Christian has without knowing it. The biblical worldview is taking all Christian values and teachings and blending it together with life lessons and even school subjects. We also need to know that God is the center of everything and how God is revealed in life in general. This is believed because it is the truth. As Christians we need to think like critical thinkers and not pretend we know something that we do not know. When we do that we tend to stray away from Gods word and start making it our own. (Word count 100) My worldview is that people can be accepting at times, but ultimately as a world we have much trouble uniting. I always imagine what it would be like growing up in a place where I did not know about the grace of God or even have a home. It helps me understand people around the world and why they believe what they believe. We need to realize that if we want world peace, we are going......

Pat Roberston has been a controversial figure within the Christian Conservative Movement. He was the founder of the Christian Coalition which has been influential in conservative politics beginning in the 1980’s. Also in 1989 Ralph Reed became the day to day leader of their operations, in the 1992 and 1996 presidential elections the coalition produced “non partisan” voter guides.They distributed over 40 million to Christian churches, this was a strong sign that the Christians were trying to have strong influence in politics. A core belief of Reverend Robertson is that the United States is a Christian country. He believes that the changes within society such premarital sex, homosexuality, scientific research methods, and divorce are damaging our nation. He believes that Christians need to be more involved in our communities to have an influence on rolling back these negative changes. In keeping with the liberal interpretation of the first amendment to the Bill of Rights, there should be a separation between church and state. As Robertson states, the America that we all support, and the one conceived by our forefathers, is one “with respect for the individual liberty of each citizen and tolerance for individual differences.” However the America he describes is far from the the land of tolerance and respect. He urges people of Judeo-Christian faiths to......
