Bible Essay Christians are being justified by faith everyday. We as christians are being justified by faith. We rely on God and trust Him so we are justified. People in the Bible have also been justified by faith. The people in the Bible had a lot more faith and trust in God than we do and they showed their devotion to Him by how they acted and they also were very open about worshipping and fearing God in order to gain Justification. Some examples are Noah in the Old Testament and The Israelites in Egypt. In this essay I will talk about how we can be justified by our faith in God. I will also talk about how the people in the Bible were justified by their faith and how they were miraculously protected by God. In the Old Testament there are some people who showed how commited they were to God. Through their commitment they were justified and protected by God. One example of justification by faith is Noah and his family. Noah believed God when He told him that there was gonna be a huge storm and flood would engulf the earth. He still did what God told him to do despite the oppositon against what God said. For God to say that it was going to rain and the flood would consume the earth was compleltely ridiculous. Where Noah lived it was to dry for it to rain and even have a flood for that matter. That’s why nobody listened to Noah when he said the earth would flood. Despite the peoples choices Noah put himself and his family on the boat and was saved (Justified by faith) and protected because he listened to God. The second example of Justification by faith is the Israelites listening to God when he said the Angel of Death would pass over Egypt. The Israelites were justified by their faith when the Angel of Death passed over Egypt. The Angel of Death judged everyone who didn’t cover their doorways in the blood of a lamb.

work but believes in him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness, 6just as David also speaks of the blessing of the one to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:
7"Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered;
8blessed is the man against whom the Lord will not count his sin."
9Is this blessing then only for the circumcised ,or also for the uncircumcised? We say that faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness. 10How then was…

Science, and the Bible
The role that the bible should play in discussions about sexuality should be based on weather an individual has faith in the bible. There may be people who are of a certain faith, but they do not practice it as they should. I personally do not believe that the bible should be taken as literally as it is, because it is not the verbatim word of God. It should play a rather important part for those who do believe in the bible, but as far as I know the bible was written for people…

My Defense for the Christian Faith
“Is God real?” This is a question that many people, if not all, ask themselves. It seems as though the answer is pretty logical: Of course He is. However, some would argue that there is no god, that mankind was somehow evolved from lifeforms from millions and millions of years ago. But if those people were to look closely, it would become extremely apparent to them that…

Most commonly, religious people believe that God is revealed to them through the Bible, through the stories, or through the meaning which is in the story. The scriptures include books such as the Bible or the Qur’an. The Holy Scripture is called Holy because it means ‘set apart.’ This shows us that humans are separate from God, and we are set apart from God because the Bible or the Qur’an is revelatory. Some people on the other hand, believe that God is revealed to us through…
Religion is a very sensitive topic to discuss with, many believing their religion is the only true and correct faith. Throughout history hundreds of religions sprouted and disappeared, some faster than others. The past as well as the present conclude that religion is not all that we believe it to be. Events such as war, famine, and genocide all share a common denominator, religion. I am not saying that God or the gods worshipped caused these disasters, but rather they are the excuse or…
the Bible. Most people did not have the option of selecting their own
denomination. They were either raised in a church by their parents or it was pre-
determined by the region they grew up in. Either way, most people by this time
have their own view of what it means to be a Christian. This idea or belief would
represent that persons Christian Worldview. Three major themes relating to
a Christian World view are Faith, Hope, and Love.
The first theme Faith can be defined…
