In contrast to gods of heathen religions who are often presented as vindictive and angry beings in need of appeasement, the God of the Bible is characterized as the essence of love. “God is love” (1 John 4:8, 16).

Essay) by Doug Woolley 11/5/86 Sin is that which separates an individual from God.

We become righteous by having faith in the power of the blood of Jesus Christ to wash away our sins. There is nothing we can do to earn our righteousness; it is only through faith that we are put right with God. When we accept the atonement of Jesus' blood to make us righteous, we become a new...

"Nature" is an essay written by Ralph Waldo Emerson, and published by James Munroe and Company in 1836. In this essay Emerson put forth the foundation of transcendentalism, a belief system that espouses a non-traditional appreciation of nature.[1] Transcendentalism suggests that the divine, or God, suffuses nature, and suggests that reality can be understood by studying nature.[2] Emerson's visit to the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris inspired a set of lectures he later delivered in...

dilemma that comes from the writings of Plato.

The choice to be made is double-edged. If you choose (1) God’s commands make things good, it would mean that if God commanded that ‘rape is not wrong’, then there would be nothing morally wrong with rape.
