Those with excess should give more and in proportion to their wealth. In any case, giving should be sacrificial and prioritized. 2.

  • Analysis Of C. S. Lewis The Screwtape Letter

    motives behind our beliefs are no exception, and as a result Christians are subject to immoral Christian belief; an immorality that lies in the motive and not in the consequence. When one devotes oneself to Christianity under desires other than to seek the truth and find God, the faith loses its validity and becomes one of mercenary affairs instead of Godly affairs.

  • Ritualism In Hemingway's Big Two-Hearted River

    Ritualism is apparent in Hemingway’s short story “Big Two-Hearted River” with regards to Nick’s interactions with the river and nature. Through my Christian background, I recognize that this ritualism also is evidently involved with the sacrament of baptism and the Eucharist.

This strife often gets in the way of the true goal of Christianity (to bring those who do not believe in the gospel message to Christ). The Catholics and the Lutherans are different denominations of the same religion of Christianity. Many people that are not members of either denomination can confuse the two.
