...Theology After comprehensively going through the Harper Collins’ paperback, this paper comes to the conclusion that the publication is a mixed bag. The writing is undoubtedly excellent and the translation reliable. However, the volume notes appear to have been written by individuals who do not believe or have faith in God. For instance, this was especially clear in James and 1st Timothy, where the notion of prophecy as a visualization of the future is not even considered; even to quarrel against it (Meeks 1745). Hence, the reader is not granted the alternative of deciding the nature of the supernatural or miracles. Even though, I understand that this is a matter which people need to decide... Theology...

It is the story of the warning of God to the Kingdom of Judah, through the prophet, Jeremiah. Like other books of the bible, before and after it, these passages have some surprising and familiar details in them. There are also certain facts that, I would like to know about the author of the book. One verse that, I like in the book of Jeremiah is the fifth verse of chapter 1, which says that, God knew Jeremiah before he was formed in his mother’s womb and he has sanctified him and ordained him a prophet to many nations (Jeremiah 1:5... 28 February...

...THEOLOGY-311 week one reading summary From time immemorial, man has been in the search for God and the various religious beliefs in the history of humanity illustrate this unrelenting quest for God. The development of systematic theology is essential for man in order to understand the one true God of the Bible. According to Charles Ryrie, theology is the study of God and it literally means 'a word about God'. Significantly, the word "theology" derives from two Greek words: theos which means God and logos which means rational expression. Therefore, Christian theology can be best comprehended as the rational interpretation of the Christian faith. It is essential to have a general understanding... ...

...theology, the term theodicy is used to mean the response to the evidential problem of evil. The term and the existence of its concept are thought to give reason of the existence of a God who is all-powerful and unstoppable in his ways (Young). He is also a God who will always care and give to his people without looking back. To look at an extraordinary evil in the world, we take an example of a mother who has money and lives with her friend’s children because her friend cannot afford their upkeep. Without the knowledge of her friend, she keeps on mistreating her friend’s children throughout their childhood. However, due to the actions of their mother, the rich woman’s children perform...

...Theology In the first passage (Genesis 2:4a) God is supernatural, dignified and divine being aloof from creation while in the second passage (Genesis 2:4a-3:24) God is anthropomorphic with human-like characteristics such as speaking, walking and acting like human beings. In the first passage, God is referred to as Elohim while in the second account he is referred to as Jehovah (McDermott 2003). Elohim is the universal God who calls into being, rests and ceases to make. On the other hand, Jehovah in the second account of creation is a personal and nationalistic God who forms, breaths and makes. It feels the same to be in the presence of God behind each of these two passages...

Sins are categorized as the sin of commission which involves doing a wrong thing knowingly and the sin of omission which entails failure to do what is right knowingly (Kay 18). 2.

In the past, slavery was the norm among the white Americans who felt that the black people were inferior to them. However, religion has forced people to make changes into the system and ensure equality among all. Questions still arise as to whether all the beings are the same.
