      I almost NEVER engage in threads about the Bible, because I see it as merely a book written by humans (no inspiration). Understanding that, I have to say that the idea of the Bible being a "White man's book" seems (at least on the surface) to be inane.

    Question: Dear Rabbi Singer, Does the Jewish faith have a teaching comparable to that of "original sin" in the Christian tradition? By this I mean the teaching that all human beings are born with an innate tendency to disobey God. In my particular Christian tradition, water baptism is required for the removal of this sin. Would you please comment.   The book of Genesis () along with Jesus’ teaching on marriage and divorce (e.g. Matthew ) presents marriage between a man and a woman as the only divinely designed place for sexual relations. And throughout the Bible heterosexual marriage is the human construct most often used to reveal truths about God’s relationship to his people.

      The Biblical Age of the Earth. The idea of the earth being billions of years old is a relatively new idea. This idea has only become popular within the last years or so. Prior to the early ’s and late ’s most people believed the biblical age of the earth, about 6, years old, as recorded in the Bible. They took God’s word as.   The great desire of the Christian in doing good to his enemy and praying for him is that the enemy might cease to be an enemy and come to glorify God (1 Peter ; ; Titus , 10). Toward friend and foe, love is the attitude that governs the Christian in “all things” (1 Corinthians ).

The Biblical View of Man By Leo Adler Translated by Daniel R. Schwartz Urim Publications,pages ISBN: Reviewed by Israel Drazin The Biblical View of Man contains Rabbi Dr. Leo Adler's view of what the Bible teaches about people.

Rabbi Adler published the Cited by: 1. The Biblical words for man in the Pauline writingsMeyenfeldt, F.H. von. The Old Testament meaning of heart and soulHoff, T. Nephesh and the fulfillment it receives as PsucheBerkouwer, G.C. The reformed faith and the modern concept of manSchrotenboer, P.G.

The Biblical View of Man argues cogently that the Bible is more about human beings than about God, and insists that in the biblical view, what human beings need is not so much wisdom or grace but rather their own free will to fulfill the obligations that a loving God has bestowed upon them in order to allow them to prove and improve themselves.

The first part, which was published in February,under the title The Christian Faith in the Modern World, dealt with the authority of the Bible and with the Biblical doctrine of God.

As Christians we need to reclaim the Biblical view of man, grounded in God’s creation of man in his image. This study calls us back to that focus. PART ONE: THE CREATION FACTOR A. THE VALUE OF THE HUMAN. The fact of creation by God gives value and purpose to everything, including human life.

Man is pictured as the crown of God’s creation. In order to maintain a chronological format, only a very general description of man’s creation is given in verses Chapter two returns to this matter of the creation of man with a much more detailed account.

Catholicism's true attitude toward the Bible. The modern approach of the Catholic Church is to emphasize great love and respect for the Scriptures.

Present day Catholics want people to believe that the Catholic Church has faith in the Bible, is the church of the Bible, and encourages its members to read and study the Bible.

The Creation of Man The Scriptures teach us that man is not an accident or the result of some mindless process, but the creative work of the eternal God.

After God had created all other creatures, He formed the first man Adam from the dust of the ground, breathed the breath of life into his nostrils and he became a living being. FromFile Size: KB. Search the world's most comprehensive index of full-text books.

My library. This interpretation of Genesis and the perception that the Bible has little else to say about our relation to the earth have led many people to reject the Bible as a resource for developing a sound environmental ethic. The view that the Bible has fostered the exploitation of nature is expressed in an influential and often-cited article by Lynn White entitled, "The Historical Roots of our Ecologic Crisis.".

(Click to listen to an audio recording of this article: 19 Bible verses showing God’s thoughts toward us) God’s thoughts toward us – what the Bible says. God’s own Word, the Bible, shows what an immense care God has for His whole creation, and especially for each one of us people individually.

THE BOOK OF GOD'S PROMISES The Biblical View of Sexuality By J. Stephen Lang. -- One thing the world seems pretty certain about: Christianity is a killjoy, anti-sex religion.

But this is a lie. Nothing in the Bible says that sex is wrong. Question: "What does the Bible say about aging/growing old?" Answer: The Bible presents growing old as a normal, natural part of life in this world. There is honor involved in the aging process, because growing old is normally accompanied by increased wisdom and experience.

Sir Robert Anderson, in the preface to his book Forgotten Truths, said this: "In the early years of my Christian life I was greatly perplexed and distressed by the supposition that the plain and simple words of such Scriptures as John ; 1 John ; 1 Timothy were not true, save in a cryptic sense understood only by the initiated.

For, I. Religious views on masturbation. Among the world's religions, views on masturbation vary widely. Some religions view it as a spiritually detrimental practice, some see it as not spiritually detrimental and others take a situational view.

Among these latter religions, some view masturbation as allowable if used as a means towards sexual self-control, or as part of healthy self-exploration, but disallow it if it. Question: "What does the Bible say about attitude?" Answer: Writing from a prison cell in Rome, the apostle Paul wrote about the attitude a Christian should have: “Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ” (Philippians ).

The "whatever happens" here is a reference to whether Paul can come to visit the Philippians or not. Evolutionists, by means of “scientific” propaganda, have coerced some religionists into abandoning all confidence in the biblical view of man’s origin.

Others, not willing to forsake the totality of their faith, have sought an alliance between evolutionary and creationist concepts.Judaism teaches that it is heretical for any man to claim to be God, part of God, or the literal son of God. The Jerusalem Talmud (Ta'anit ) states explicitly: "if a man claims to be God, he is a liar." In his book A History of the Jews, Paul Johnson describes the schism between Jews and Christians caused by a divergence from this principle.A Biblical Definition of Leadership In his book, The Making of a Leader, Dr.

J. Robert Clinton describes biblical leadership as “a dynamic process in which a man or woman with God-given capacity influences a specific group of God’s people toward His purposes for the group.”1 Clearly, biblical leadership is influence.
