    In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, God created both male and female in His own image (Genesis 1:27). With both man and woman being made in the image of God, both are in equal standing before God; yet, within their equal standing, men and women have different roles. The different roles were created to be complementary, meaning, the roles that God created for men and women are in perfect balance of each other (Genesis 2:23). The complementary role that God created for women includes, but is not limited to, traits such as: wisdom, kindness, service, strength, dignity, modesty, and submission. As evidenced by the woman displayed in Proverbs chapter 31, whose character follows a theme of wisdom and service. The Proverbs 31 woman “opens her mouth with…

    points: 1. Accept one another because God accepts us in Christ (Rom. 14:1,3; 15:7). 2. Do not judge each other because Jesus is our only LORD and Judge (Rom. 14:3-12). 3. Love is more important than personal freedom (Rom. 14:13-21). 4. Follow Jesus’ example and lay down your rights for others’ edification and good (Rom. 15:1-13). I think that in order to understand these Scriptures, you need to understand what was going on at that time and right before Paul wrote them. The main thing was that…

    hear that that is okay because we need people to support missionaries and churches. This is true in some aspects as I hope to be able to contribute monetarily, however I think a major point is missed in this. Becoming a secular businessman is not a lower calling than becoming a missionary. All Christians have been called to bring glory to God through all of their vocations, all of their actions. There is not a lesser career if we have all been asked to accomplish the same task, to bring…

    Paul wrote what is now the book of First Corinthians as a letter to the church of Corinth. After hearing of disputes and worries from members of the church, Paul wrote the congregation letters (including first and second Corinthians) as counsel to guide the church back to the right path (Elwell & Yarbrough, 273). One of the problems listed is the concern of marriage. Paul responds to questions such as: should Christians get married? And what basis is there for divorce? In relation to today’s…

    In addition, sin responds pridefully in angry or defensive tones when others speak out or attempt to lovingly confront the sinful behavior they see in us. Words like, “Who are you to judge?” or “Why are you so intolerant?” or my motto is, “Live and let live.” As broken people living in a broken world, Christians are not immune to sin. The rationalization of sin is often found in the misapplication or misunderstandings of the freedoms we have in grace, this same grace freely provided to us as…

    reflection of an internal relationship of faith with God could also attain eternal life though Christ (even if they have no conscious knowledge of him) just as “saved” Old Testament Jews like Abraham or Moses received salvation. 2. What does “propitiation” mean and from what arena did Paul derive this metaphor for salvation? Paul takes the term “propitiation” from the world of religious worship since the term is used to describe an animal sacrifice to atone for (or take away) human sin.…

    Why me? Thoughts race through my head as I wonder why I am someone standing in front of all these people leading them to the King’s throne through song. I know this is where God has nudged me, but why do I feel so ill-equipped. Beginning to ponder the words in my head, I start to believe that I’m not worthy to do this. I don’t know enough. I am not talented enough. I have screwed up way too much. The truth is all of that is true. “I” am not worthy, “I” do not have the same amount of talent or…

    Paul’s final call of the church in Colossians 3:1-15 is witnessed in Colossians 3:14-15 which reads, “And above all these, put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.” Both love and thankfulness, but especially love, are some of Christ’s most prominent characteristics. 1 John 4:19 states, “We love because he first loved us.” (ESV 1 John 4:19) Again, we are taught to…
