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.…
My Faith Journey
All of my life I have been a Christian, a Lutheran to be exact. My mom was born and raised Lutheran while my dad was born and raised Methodist, but he later became agnostic, which was against my grandparents’ wishes. I have always had a faith, and I hope I always will. Right now I am getting ready to be confirmed as a Catholic in the next few months. I was a baby when I was baptized so I did not truly understand my faith until I was in about 4th or 5th grade when I started learning…
Life without hope in a dull frustrating world congeals the stuff of human existence…. Almost. To some, burn-lived-died is more than the plot of too many bad novelties, it dooms them, chaining their lives to a Maslowian fate. Others drown the raw truth in unrelenting labor, raucous revelry, sunlit spring breezes, cigarettes at noontime, or the bottle. Yet some find hope in this droll frustrating world, but they will not agree and cannot be sure of that hope. Or can they?
Once I could…
Is it difficult or impossible to match the beliefs of two religions? Muslims and Christians have such a difficult time getting along with each other. Christians refuse to take time out to learn and explore the Muslims beliefs. Instead they pass immediate judgment and rule out the other religion as wrong or evil. Christians commonly misinterpret Muslims by thinking all Muslims are raised to be violent, worship a different god, and do not believe in Jesus Christ.
Due to the pervious…

writes: “What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, ‘Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.’ ”
In the text, the Apostle uses the word “faith” three times, but the question is what is the correct meaning of…
Analytical Reading & Writing –Question 5: How do faith and reason contribute to an understanding and appreciation of life and the universe?

Before going deeper into the question, ‘faith’ and ‘reason’ needs to be defined so that there is a better understanding of what they mean. ‘Faith’ is when an individual has a strong belief in someone with higher power, be…

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…
The Faith of Mary Rowlandson
In her writing titled “A Narrative of the Captivity and Restauration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson”, Mary lies out for the reader her experience of being held in captivity by Indians during the King Philip’s War. Perhaps one of the most significant aspects of this writing is the glimpse that the reader gets into Rowlandson’s faith and religion. Faith was a major aspect of life in the Colonial Period.
