    • 5 Pages

    These arguments by John Calvin and Augustine invite readers to explore if God really intends some humans to receive salvation because they have been promised “salvation,” while others ought to receive “damnation” ? It is interesting to explore this perspective with comparison to the story of Judas Iscariot. Judas was one of the disciples of Jesus Christ, whom Jesus chose to follow him and he was the betrayer. Judas’ inclusion in the part of Jesus’ death and resurrection convey that if Judas had not betrayed Jesus, how would Jesus be taken into the hands of authority and nailed to the cross. Do Jesus’ words “..It would have been better for that one not to have been born”(Matthew 26:24) convey that he was predestined to play the role of a traitor in Jesus’ journey to the cross? On one level, it can be argued that Jesus’ words express the truth that God chooses people to be disciples of Christ and once they make wrong choices because they have the free will, they end their journeys, metaphorically speaking either, desolate and dry and not healthy and fruitful. I would like to pause here and explore the unanswered question that my…

    Matthew chapter 27 records the trial and death of Christ. Needless to say, Jesus’ death was a monumental event in history. There were several things in the events of his arrest, trial, and death that are very noteworthy. Also, the theological significance of His death is worthy of review and contemplation. The arrest of Jesus Christ is a tale of deep betrayal. Judas Iscariot, a member of the original twelve disciples, was contacted by Caiaphas the high priest. Judas was contracted for thirty…

    They are both called “the Son of Perdition” (John 17:22; 2 Thess. 2:3). Might the name Judas share something in common with the name Donald Trump? (You’re starting to get good at answering these rhetorical questions, aren’t you?) The name Judas means, “praised”. The name Iscariot means, “man of the city.” Together they mean, “Praised man of the City”. And Trump is the ultimate praised man of the city. Barbara Walters is quoted as calling him, “Prince of the City.” Ernst Wilhelm Hengstenberg has…

    1. What was the reading about? What new information did it provide? C. Robert Mesle in the book Process-Relational Philosophy claims that God has gone through experiences of all sorts. Based on this argument, he further mentions Whitehead’s claims about the “primordial nature of God.” (PR 46, 343-51) This is to state that God has “no moral character.” In the book, Process Theology A Basic Introduction, C. Robert Mesle claims again that the freedom of the world has to deal with God and God’s…

    are; we have been offered and all of us will receive rewards for planting God’s seeds. Hebrews 13:15 15 With Jesus’ help we will continually offer our sacrifice of praise to God by telling others of the glory of his name. With each one of God’s gifts we receive to plant we also receive the Master Gardner’s care to produce an abundant crop. John 15:2b while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. A warning is given in our lesson; fruitless branches…

    • 10 Pages

    character, Charles, along with many others. Like in every great tale, a villain is born. The plot of the Song of Roland unravels essentially because of a declaration of vengeance and actions taken by one character: Ganelon declares, “… I’ll start a feud with you.” (Halverson 661 and Turold 1341). Ganelon plays the role of a villain with little to no redeeming qualities, as do most antagonists. The role Ganelon plays in the Song of Roland displays important feudal relationships and is a…

    treacherous to their master. Satan had three of those sinners in his mouth: Judas Iscariot, Brutus and Cassius for an eternity. Judas Iscariot was one of Jesus’s twelve apostles. He is commonly acknowledged as the man that betrayed Jesus Christ and turned him over to the Romans who killed him. According to the Bible, Jesus said Judas performed the “greater sin”. Treason is the sin that trumps all others and performing it on our creator magnifies it, so Judas is placed headfirst in the mouth of…
