Romans 10 Verse 3 Analysis

Good Essays
In the face of conflict, it is human nature to react in anger, but the reaction of a Christian, who knows God’s words react with patience, love, kindness, forgiveness, prayer and knowledge. The problem with today’s society is that we spend our time and efforts in conflict with different races, cultures, and lifestyle choices. We are constantly fighting for equality, to where as we should be fighting for unity. Instead, we should be spending our efforts reaching out in love and respect, reaching out to those we are in conflict with. Our actions speak louder than words and sometimes causes us to look like hypocrites. We should not react to conflict without seeking God’s provision and guidance. (Matthew 5:38-48, Proverbs 15:1 NKJV) In Romans chapter 10 verse 3, Paul asserts how men, who do not believe in God, look to their own goodness and establish their lives based on their own works. In pride, fallen man wants to set up his own righteousness as good enough, but it falls short of God’s righteousness. In James 4:1, we are asked to look at the source of the conflict. Are we righteous enough to judge others for their opinions? How can we see other’s flaws when we have bigger flaws? (Matthew 7:3) We must judge …show more content…
They think once you are saved, life is blissful and trouble- free. They expect Christians to be transformed into immortal beings without human thoughts and problems. Through suffering and trials, we learn to cope with hope. Being a Christian, we learn what God wants for our lives, who we are, and how God uses the struggles to refine us and teach how to fully rely and trust him. ( ) Even though we trust God’s word and have a positive attitude about our future, people do not realize making one wrong slip can hinder our walk with God. We have to fully trust his words and prepare ourselves for the battle with the adversary. It is good versus evil. Compare it to the game of

    As followers of Christ, Christians must be knitted together in love. If there is discord among the brethren, how then can we stand for Christ and impact this world for His glory? As Christians, it is essential to strive humbly led by the Holy Ghost to go out into the world to tell people about getting right with God. However, it is essential that we be right with God ourselves as well as our brothers and sisters from other races and ethnicities. If we, the body of Christ, are divided or experience schisms in the body of Christ because of racism, which is a sin that Jesus overcame and has given us the power to overcome, it can be more difficult to stand as ambassadors of Christ to the world when we are not all on one accord.…

    Proverbs 1:7 states that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.” Although it is comforting to know that God forgives us, loves us, and helps us in dire circumstances, if we do not know that God is a jealous God, then we will lack in knowing the consequences of sin. If we do not know the consequences of sin and how much our God does not want to lose us to sin, then we will continue to live a lifestyle far from our spirit’s desire. Thus, instead of regular messages of healing, forgiveness, or other positive aspects of Christian faith, there needs to be teachings of the graveness of sin and the fear of the…

    (Fritz, 2016) However, the Bible clearly states that we cannot earn our Salvation, but rather it is a freely given gift from God, Romans 3:22, Romans 4:5. While one may have natural tendencies to do the right thing, the act of doing will not save us. Also, we are still all born with a sinful nature, but through God’s doing He can turn our nature to one like His, Romans 8:6. Emotivism says that if my emotions say it is ok than it is ok, (Fritz, 2016). We must continue to strive to follow Jesus even when it doesn’t feel right emotionally, Romans 8:12.…

    Jesus says to “love our enemies, do good to those that hate you, and pray for those which despitefully use you and persecute you.” We are called to encourage people and to pray day and night for their salvation. We cannot push them to do what is right if they do not know Jesus. The Bible explicitly affirms that we desire to do what is right and are restored once we come to know Christ. If we have to sanctify ourselves before we can accept Jesus then why do we need a savior? Therefore, we cannot judge those who have not come to Christ since they have no desire or need to do right.…

    This is why we need to properly address the topic of suffering throughout our lives and encourage people to discuss the topic; if people do not clearly understand the role of God in suffering then they may likely share the common view that God has forsaken them and they cannot understand why. With this education on suffering it is important to continue to seek God’s counsel often and talk with him and His followers about our views on suffering and whether we are struggling with suffering of our own (6). The topic of why God does not intervene is a prominent one in many texts; there are the theories on whether…

    He believes that people should act in such a way that can be “tested” against the results and then the duty will be universal in the name of God. Utilized universally, this would mean that everyone loves God, we treat each other with kindness and fairness, everything in the world will be positive, and the idea that Christianity carries along with it, conflict and causes society to fail would disappear. However, the fact that being a Christian means that we may fail at times, but the outcome of our failures is considered a lesson learned to do better the next time an opportunity presents itself (Velarde,…

    Suffering is about learning about who we are a person and how do we wish to become. It fills a person with wisdom and humility. Without suffering we would not be able to appreciate all that we have been given by God. We would not be able to thrive as humans as we would not be able to distinguish between the rights and wrongs if we did not experience suffering. It will create a world where people care and love each other and no one wishes anyone else to suffer like they may have, suffering also makes a man sympathetic towards the ones who are suffering, Finally, suffering should not be seen as a punishment but as a blessing by God, without suffering we would not be able to appreciate all that is given to us.…

    6) God condemns those who have no faith and make the assumption that by doing good deeds, one may attain salvation and freedom. If a wicked person commits himself to doing righteous deeds, what good is it if he does not believe in the first place? “He needs neither laws nor good works but, on the contrary, is injured by them if he believes he is justified by them” (Luther, p. 11). Luther states that instead of being focused on performing righteous acts, which have no reflection on what matters, faith and the inner self, one should make certain that his heart is in the right place, that puts his faith in Christ. Given this freedom through faith, a Christian can then do meaningful work, actions that are of his own will.…
