HUMAN IMPERFECTION: While We Were Sinners Christ Died For Us

 There are many reasons the Christian view of humanity is very important. The Christian view of humanity believes that humans were created in the image of God. We will look at the biblical view of humanity. We are going to look at the nature of man, the freedom of man, the personality of man, the fall of man, the nature of sin and death, as well as why God has allowed sin to enter into the world, as well as all of the wickedness and suffering that came with it.

Psalm 8:4
4 what is man that you are mindful of him,
   and the son of man that you care for him?

Andrews will answer the following questions and far more. How does the Bible explain and describe the creation of man and woman? Why is it imperative that we understand our fallen condition? What does it mean to be made in the image of God? What are the original language words for “man” in Hebrew and Greek? What do they mean? Why Do We Grow Old and Die?

What Scriptural evidence is there that imperfect humans are mentally bent toward evil? How can we control our mental bent toward evil? What is the ongoing conflict within us? What are the moral law and sin’s law? How do we take off the old person and put on the new person?

How does this completely new man come about? How do we “learn Christ”? Why is it important that we put away the old person definitively? What is the force that sets our mind into motion, and how is it made new? What was Adam given that imperfect humans still have, which needs to be cultivated?

How do we correctly understand our freedom as it relates to God's foreknowledge? Does foreknowledge equal foreordination? Does foreknowledge determine the free decision, or do free decisions determine the foreknowledge? Does the event happen because God foreknows it, or because God foreknows the event it will happen?

 Herein Andrews will give the reader exactly what the Bible offers on exposing who the Antichrist and the Man of Lawlessness are. If we look at the texts that refer to the antichrist and the man of lawlessness, we will have lines of evidence that will enable us to identify them. Why is it important that we know who the antichrist and the man of lawlessness are? The antichrist and the man of lawlessness have had a greater impact on humanity and Christianity over the past centuries than many know. Moreover, the influence on the true worshipers of Christianity today has been even more significant and will only go from bad to worse as we come closer the second coming of Christ.

Let us offer an analogy to make the above point, even more, impactful. What would we do if a deadly outbreak of a disease that is spreading more quickly and more extensively among the people than would normally be expected and it is raging in our country, especially within our city, right in our community? Would we not look for a way to build up our immune system? Would we not also want to avoid anyone carrying the disease? The same holds true of the antichrist and the man of lawlessness, who not only have the ability to take our physical life but also our eternal life. Therefore, in a Scriptural sense, we would want to build ourselves up spiritually and avoid anyone who is affected by these evil ones, not to mention the antichrist and the man of lawlessness themselves. The Scriptures tell us “the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is in the world already.” (1 John 4:3) Still staying with the analogy, if we want to avoid being infected, we have to identify the antichrist/man of lawlessness and the carriers of the disease.

This publication will accomplish just that and do so Scripturally. Nothing herein will be based on an opinion; it will all be God’s Word. The first four chapters will cover the Antichrist. Chapters 5-6 will deal with the Man of Lawlessness. The apostle Paul tells us “Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with …” [2 Thessalonians 2:8] In addition, Chapter 7 will identify the Mark of the Beast from the book of Revelation.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • From one of the world’s most influential spiritual thinkers, a long-awaited book exploring what it means that Jesus was called “Christ,” and how this forgotten truth can restore hope and meaning to our lives.

“Anyone who strives to put their faith into action will find encouragement and inspiration in the pages of this book.”—Melinda Gates

In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’s last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understandings have been limited by culture, religious debate, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center.

Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God’s constant, unfolding work in the world. “God loves things by becoming them,” he writes, and Jesus’s life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God—except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator’s presence all around us, and in everyone we meet.

Thought-provoking, practical, and full of deep hope and vision, The Universal Christ is a landmark book from one of our most beloved spiritual writers, and an invitation to contemplate how God liberates and loves all that is.
The intention of this book is to investigate the biblical chronology behind Jehovah's Witnesses most controversial doctrinal position that Jesus began to rule invisibly from heaven in October 1914. This biblical chronology of the Witnesses hinges upon their belief that the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonians, which they say occurred in 607 B.C.E. The Witnesses conclude that Chapter 4 of the book of Daniel prophesied a 2,520 year period that began in 607 B.C.E. and ended in 1914 C.E. They state, "Clearly, the 'seven times' and 'the appointed times of the nations' refer to the same time period." (Lu 21:24) It is their position that When the Babylonians conquered Jerusalem, the Davidic line of kings was interrupted, God's throne was "trampled on by the nations" until 1914, at which time Jesus began to rule invisibly from heaven.

In chapter 1  we will take their chronology from the back of their 1984 New World Translation Reference Bible. We will take the points one-by-one, seeing whether the Watchtower get things right, and where the interpretation breaks down. 

In chapter 2  we will take the time to talk about this craze of Christianity, which also has been overly focusing on such terms as the "end times" or "the last days." While none of us can know the precise time of Jesus' return, how should we view the time that is remaining?

In Chapter 3 we will give the reader a correct understanding of Bible prophecy. In Chapter 4 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the signs of the end of the age. In Chapter 5 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the rapture. In Chapter 6 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the great tribulation. In Chapter 7 we will give the reader a correct understanding of Armageddon. In Chapter 8 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the Resurrection. In Chapter 9 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the millennium. In Chapter 10 we will give the reader a correct understanding of the final judgment. In Chapter 11 we will give the reader a correct understanding of what will happen to the unevangelized. In Chapter 12 we will give the reader a correct understanding of what the book of life is, who have their name written in the book of life, and can their name be erased (removed) from the book of life.
