Gospel Of Paul

Intro Sample...

To those of the church of Antioch,
My apostolic authority being fully credentialed will give the proclamation that those who promise are descendants not those who just abide by the law.
On my sailing back here Antioch I must confront the teachings of certain Jewish Christians. According to the Judaizers, those from Judea, you cannot be saved unless you are circumcised. They are proclaiming that a Gentile cannot become a descendant of Abraham or a full member of the family of God unless this procedure is done. This fear of circumcision among the Gentiles should not be forcefully put upon them. Take Cephas for instance, he ate with people who were not Jewish until some men James had sent arrived. Then Cephas... View More »

Righteousness is found through faith and for everyone who believes.
You receive the Spirit not by doing the works of the law but by believing. Abraham inherited a promise not through the works of the law but through faith. Before Christ came the law was our pedagogue, now that Christ has came we are no longer subject to it. We are all children of God through faith. Obey the law THEN you will be accepted as a child of God? Judaizers, that is nonsense! Let yourselves be circumcised, the following of that law will not benefit you in anyway from Christ.
If you believe and are led by the Spirit there are no laws against peace and love. So then what is the function of the law? I will tell you what it is not. It does not make anyone righteous before God, it is not based on faith and it is not the basis of inheritance. However it is there for transgression. In order for sinners to know how sinful they really are, to recognize their deviance, God gave the law. By recognizing our sins it gives way to the gospel and leads us to justification, sanctification, and redemption. For before the Law was given, sin was in the world, but Sin is not reckoned when there is no Law.
The baptismal gift of grace is what we live under not the law. Do not give in to the desires of the flesh. For when the time comes to eat do not let one go hungry. It is not in God’s way to humiliate those who have nothing. Those who behave selfishly and take advantage of their status are forgetting Christ’s crucifixion. What are acceptable is love, kindness, generosity, joy, faithfulness, gentleness and self ...

    Gospel music is an American religious musical form that owes much of its origin to the Christian conversion of West Africans enslaved in the American South. Gospel music combines Christian religious lyrics with melody and rhythm that developed in tandem with early blues and jazz. Modern gospel artists have also incorporated elements from soul music, which originally arose as a secular form of gospel. Gospel music partly evolved from the songs slaves sang on plantation, notably work songs, and from the Protestant hymns they sang in church. However, gospel music didn’t

    Jesus In The Garden Of Gethsemane A Comparison Between The Gospels Of John And Mark

    1259 words, 6 pages

    Gospel of John: A Study of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane The Gospel of John treats the story of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, also known as the betrayal of Christ, in a manner starkly different from that of the Gospel of Mark. The reason for such a stark difference is two-fold, rooted in Christological and eschatological differences in the two Gospels. The Gospel of Mark paints Jesus as a hidden Messiah whom his disciples devalued and consistently misunderstood; eschatologically, the Gospel of Mark is urgent and therefore portrays Jesus’ death as a necessity for the imminent apocal

    Ephesians 3:14 21

    Throughout all of Scripture anyone can see the concern Paul had for the people of Ephesus. In Acts 18:19-21 Paul visits the city of Ephesus and only stayed there for a month, just long enough to reason with people in the synagogue (Wilkinson). During his third missionary journey, Paul stayed in Ephesus for around three years (Thomas Nelson). The account of Paul’s stay in Ephesus during his third missionary journey is written in Acts chapter eighteen verse twenty-four to chapter nineteen verse forty-one. Paul’s ministry must have had quite the impact. His ministry had ev
