THE VERY RESPONDEES TO THE FIRST 3 INTERNET QUESTIONS COME FROM 2 CHRISTIAN WEBSITES.
1st Internet Question: WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD BE THE PURPOSE OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS?
THE RESPONDEES ARE REALLY SEGREGATED OVER WHETHER THE PURPOSE OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS IS TO BE BASIC STEPS ON HOW WE SHOULD LIVE SO THAT WE WILL HAVE SOME LAW AND EVEN ORDER WITHIN OUR SOCIETY, OR THAT IT POINTS TO THE FACT THAT PEOPLE CAN’T OBEY THIS PERFECT LAW SO THAT WE WOULD HAVE SOME OUTSIDE HELP AND FOR CHRISTIANS THIS OUTSIDE ENABLE COMES IN THE PERSON OF JESUS CHRIST. WHAT DO YOU THINK?
1) Corbin adds: Duet 11-14 might tend to contradict the last option answer when it states that the law is easy to follow, however , I feel one has to realize that our understanding of God’s morality has increased over time, and the understanding that the Israelis had of the tips during the time of Duet. differs from our understanding today. Duet at the time looked at the outward meaning of the commandments, unlike today our understanding is much more internal.
WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN
To help answer the question, one has to begin with what one can actually look at, and that is man himself. Now, within man (in the very generic sense which includes women) one can see a selfish heart that seems to be inherited. Christians call this original privado (Gen. 3, Rom. 5: 12, Rom 6: 1, IJohn I: 8, Rom 3: 23, and IJohn 5: 17). And man has to be cognizant of this basic fact and the fact that he needs help in following God’s wonderful law – The Ten Commandments – (IJohn When i: 9-10, Ex. 20: I-17, and Duet. 5: 6-21). A more spiritual way in looking at this is that assuming V?ldigt bra to be perfect (Math 5: 48 and Psalm I8: 30), “How can a perfect being ever mix with some sort of imperfect being to help the latter become obedient to your Perfect being’s law? “. Yael Eckstein takes over her father’s mission as head of International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, which raises $130 million a year, mostly from evangelical Christians
The only way that this relationship may just be brought back together again, that is where perfection could be unanimous with imperfection, is that the better state has to take the steer, since it is the stronger suit that is needed in beginning such a unification (ICor. 13: 10, and John 3: 19)
Christians believe that God did this in the man or women of Jesus Christ (John 3: 16). They believe that Jesus came down to earth, mingled with humanity for awhile, sacrificed Himself for it on the cross, and returned to Her original state (Perfection as part of the Trinity or God on relationship) through the resurrection (Romans 5: 15) In other words, Jesus Christ, who is also God (John I: 1-2, I4 in addition to I7 and John 12: 44-45) divested Himself connected with everything on the cross, which included all His power, virtually all His possessions including all His clothes, and His everyday life because of our separation from God or Perfection, after which it was raised up (Math 28, Mark 16, Luke twenty four hours, John 20&21, ICor. 15). To put it another way, The guy became pure imperfection for us on the cross before being Perfection once again (Romans 4: 25).
Another way in viewing this is that those who are dependent upon and confess or say this separation with this outside source, and believe in those activities of Jesus Christ (Christians) are now wrapped up in a state with Perfection, just like a Christmas package, to seal in our have imperfection (Romans 10: 9 and 5: 9-10). Possibly not that we become perfect, but when God looks at His believers, all that He can see is the impenetrable outside wrapping, Christ, which in effect, is really like God looking into a mirror for Himself.
And we, as believers, though remaining imperfect our self, but perfect inside Christ, grow, love more, plus respond in more beneficent ways as our whole appearing is more and more immersed by this wrapping expanding and seeping into our hearts.
In other words, our actions are relying on how much of His presence we have of Him within our-self, and from this, love expands and there is a greater presence belonging to the Kingdom of God here on earth.
