FINAL ESSAY
The doctrine that I’m studying is the inerrancy word of God; first to understand the doctrine one must know and understand the word of God, His Holy Scriptures that were inspired by God and written by men of God’s inspiration, inerrancy and truth. The bible revelation involves the content of God’s message to us. Also the bible is God’s revelation to aid us as we search for truth and attempt to live for God. (Tim 3:15-17).
To identify with God one must know that God is an invisible personal and living spirit, distinguished from all other spirit’s which including His birth, death and resurrection.[ Elwell, Walter A. Evangelical Dictionary of Theology].pg.496
God is self- existence, eternal and unchanging, intellectual God is omniscient, faithful and wise; ethically God is just merciful and loving, emotionally God detests evil, God is long-suffering compassionate, existentially, God is free authentic and omnipotent, God is transcendent in being immanent, universally in providential activity and immanent with his people in redemptive activity these are some of God’s attributes. Therefore man was created into God’s likeness here on earth. [Elwell Walter A. Evangelical Dictionary of Theology] pg.492
The law of God nature with His creations is that everything is God’s offspring of His mind and bears the impression of His determinate nature; He created man as an intelligent being in His own likeness He has God nature with certain limitations and modifications.
God is the source of all wisdom and knowledge and truth these laws are an extension and reflection of the nature of God the law is a unity since God is one it’s always consistent in itself and its application. [Towns, Elmer L. Theology for Today].pg. 130
Ethically God is Holy, righteous, loving, He is distinct from and transcendent to all His…...

...Cynthia Okebata Theo 104 Dr. Massey World view essay The very first time I heard about a world view, I questioned, what does that mean? I looked up the meaning in a dictionary based on the context. But it was still very unclear to me. I could not provide a very strong meaning of the word, “world view”. Due to the ordeal that I I was in while I was saved, I had no idea what it actually meant to be a true Christian and a child of God. But from that time hence forth, the lord has given me a better understanding of the word, “worldview”. I’m so thankful and grateful because the more I think about what I have learned from taking this class; the more excited I get about the plans God has for me now that I have a good knowledge of who I am in him. The joy of having a good understanding of who I am in Christ, guides and influences the way I think, what I know, and the way in which I perceive things that are around me. I work in a Nursing home facility I’m sent to do my job without any limitations God choose for me to work there for a purpose, So that I can help the sick patients in my own little way. I strongly believe that I am created by God, and he created me in a very special and exclusive way, he made me in a way that I would be able to fulfill a very special and distinctive responsibility on earth John 15:16 “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the......

Is it valid for Theo to attempt to be the Starbucks of chocolate? What would that mean for Theo, exactly? Yes, absolutely. To be the Starbucks of chocolate is deeply rooted in the Theo Chocolate business; Theo's founder, Joe,believes that all parties involved in the business, from cocoa bean farmers to chocolate salespeople, should be treated fairly. Also, this will help to build a sustainable business. The chocolate is no longer a commodity, but a health-based consumer product and a lifestyle. It's not easy to make a difference in everyone's life, but it's meaningful and Theo has firmly made its first step. 3. Theo consumer brand a.

Theo Chocolate Case Study

...Questions: Theo Chocolate (Explain / Defend all answers) 1. What are the brand values of Theo Chocolate? Theo Chocolate positions itself as an origin, organic, fair trade, and ecological concerned brand. * Theo Chocolate buys raw beans directly from farmer cooperatives. * Theo Chocolate focus on sustainable practices and partners with farmer and grower cooperatives by providing technical assistance. * Theo Chocolate purchases beans only under fair trade principle that enables farmers to enhance their livelihoods. * Theo Chocolate concerns on ecosystem and co-branding with Jane Goodall, a leader of environment movement and founder of Jane Goodall institution. 2. Is it valid for Theo to attempt to be the Starbucks of chocolate? What would that mean for Theo, exactly? In my perspective, except for the common concept of educating customers about the product, Theo should not attempt to be the Starbucks of chocolate since these two brands are significantly different in many ways. Firstly, Starbucks educates customers in an effective and efficient way since they are everywhere; however, Theo sells chocolate mainly from distributors and retailors. Under the situation of limited direct stores, Theo can only convey its concept through product package, website and advertisement. Secondly, Instead of being product-oriented, Starbucks sells a sense of lifestyle that means brand-oriented. If Theo wants to be the Starbucks of......

...After reading this case, I discovered the most important problem facing the company is determining the strategic direction the company owners, Joe Whinney and Debra Music, should take to help make their business, Theo Chocolate, successful. Debra and Joe are faced with the difficult decision to either continue to follow their traditional values, or to take a new direction that would possibly help them be more successful and profitable. They are also having a difficult time figuring out who their target market should be and how they should allocate their products to be successful. When looking at Theo’s total revenue, store sales “accounted for about 40%”. If Theo’s store is accounting for such a high percentage in total revenue, I propose they expand their stores to other locations in the northwest where consumers are more health conscientious and willing to spend money on organic products. Theo became a huge tourist attraction and gained advertising just by word of mouth; therefore, to further gain advertising, I suggest the company targets the group of consumers who are actively using the Internet and social media to share their experiences. Additionally I recommend the company shifts its focus more towards health-oriented, and perhaps less main-stream, companies and businesses such as farmers markets, local stores, and coffee shops. When working with these companies and businesses the owners should push for promotion of their products, through the distributors, to have...

Theo 104 Reflection Paper

...Theo 104-D66 LUO 26 January 2015 Reflection Paper 2 Introduction: My second reflection paper will address the subject of Angels and Demons. Having little life experience with Christianity until being baptized in April of 2014, angels and demons were only in movies and not to be considered real or anything to really think about. Liberty University classes have opened my mind to a new world, church is not just for attending on Sunday and socializing with other like minded Christians but it is to contemplate a world beyond what is seen by man. Angels and Demons are real and with some serious study of the subject a person can see it all around and it having been all around since the beginning of time. Theological Definition of Angels: There are ten major theological areas of study and angels are part of that ten, this study is called “Angelology”. Scholars have many views about angels and some even ignore the subject all together but they are clearly documented in the Bible. According to Roman Catholic doctrine God is so powerful and at the sight of him a human will perish and that God created angels to serve as his liaison with the mortal world and act in God’s name, and since they do not have the tendencies of human flesh they serve as the bridge that separates the Holiness of God from the people of this earth. (KJV, Hebrews 1:14) Angels are essentially “ministering spirits”. Biblical Definition of Angels: Angels are mentioned in over thirty books of the......

...Michael Anderson Professor Gift THEO 201-B08 25 May 2015 I Believe in Truth, Not a Theorem So one day I am on a park bench, just minding my own business and reading my Bible, when out of nowhere, a jogger comes up to me and asks me what I find so interesting about the Bible and if I consider the Bible to be authoritative in any way. The first thing you are supposed to do in any kind of intelligent conversation is to define what you are talking about, so I start out by defining what I mean when the Bible is authoritative. For me, the Bible is authoritative in the sense that it holds the words of God, meaning that all the words in this book came straight from God himself, and that God literally breathed into this book. I also tell the jogger what I mean by God breathed into the book by showing her a passage in the Bible. In 2 Timothy 3:16, it says that all scripture is God breathed (2 Tim. 3:16, NIV). I tell her that through various means and purposes, God used people, from apostles to tax-collectors, to write down His words. It was through his inspiration in those people that this book was written down in this collective form. She then asks me that if the Bible is indeed inspired by God, how can I trust that the Bible is free from any error these men made when making the Bible? I start by telling her that it was not just a small group of people who made the people, but that the Bible has been seen, edited, and collective discussed by millions of people from scholars and......

Theo 202 Essay 1

...Style Turban 201540 Fall 2015 THEO 202-B26 LUO The Problem of Evil Evil is profoundly immoral and malevolent. Most Christians have experienced, heard or seen various types of evils in the world today. As a matter of fact, some believers have difficulties watching bad news on television, such as a moral evil when a person killed another person and natural evil when an earthquake is experienced killing people. These evils are pains in the flesh of believers. Theodicy are getting confused and asking why God allow evil in the world when He is holy and all powerful. God speaks through his prophets as well as the Holy Bible and scripture verses to confirm his creation and relationship with mankind (Gen. 1:27; Gen. 5:2; Deut. 4:33; NKJV). God realized man should not be alone and made a companion called Eve. God gave man demeanor over all creatures and commanded Adam and Eve not to eat from the Tree of Life. God said to Adam in Genesis 3:16-20 that “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’ “Cursed is the ground because of......

Theo 20!

...Jasmine Jockel Dr. Chris Gnanakan THEO 201-002 4 February 2015 Theology and Culture #1 Introduction Today in the United States 1 in 10 people consider themselves homosexual. That statistic is quite shocking, and frightening, considering that 78% of the people who live in the US claim to be Christian. If the people who claim to be Christians were actually devoted followers of Christ, I think that that statistic would be much lower. People who are devoted followers of Christ believe that the Bible is the eternal, inerrant Word of God. Content Christ followers believe that the Bible is the eternal Word of God, written without any errors. To back up this belief 2 Timothy 3:16a (NLT) says “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives”. If we break this verse down, we find that “inspired” actually means “God-breathed”. Now, if we look at Hebrews 6:18b (NLT) it says “ . . . it is impossible for God to lie”. So if the Word of God is God-breathed and it is impossible for Him to lie, then the Word of God is, in fact, inerrant. Application Since homosexuality is very common in society today, it is important to know what the Bible says about it. The first verse that I found in light of this subject is Leviticus 18:22 (NLT) which says “Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin”. From this verse, we see that God highly dislikes the......

...Name: Micah Davis Writing Style Used: MLA Course and Section Number: THEO 202-B05 The problem of Evil No matter the capacity, the act of sin has been a major concern for all of mankind. This concern of moral evil and natural evil are both questions of intellectual dependencies in connection with a broader theological system and more specifically, how God and evil coexisit. There are numerous circumstances throughout scripture where individuals have experienced evil suffering while still pursuing holiness. 1 Peter 3:13-14 expresses this complexity by stating, “Who is going to harm you if you are eager to do good? But even if you should suffer for what is right, you are blessed. “Do not fear their threats; do not be frightened.” This problem is also seen in Plato’s work Euthryphyro, which blueprints a series of questions in regards to God and evil. Through series of questions, Plato disregards the answer to his uncertainty. Christ allows good because He is Holy and is only incomparable of being “good.”  Evil is not of God’s character because he is perfect in every aspect of His being; He is good. Evil falls into two categories, moral and natural evil. Moral evil is evil committed by ones’ free conscious that includes acts such as crime and cruelty. [We] are exposed to moral sin in Genesis 4:18 when Cain kills his brother Abel. Natural evil is that in which involves cirumstances of things that happen out of man’s control. Moral agents can not hold......

Theo 201 Essay 1

...Name: Writing Style Used: MLA Course and Section Number: THEO 201 Essay on Topic Short Essay on Inerrancy and Inspiration As a Christian I read the bible to grow closer to God, to understand who he is and what he is about. But understanding what the bible says is not the only thing that is important for a Christian, we must understand why we believe it. Understanding why we believe it comes from understanding its authority, its inerrancy, and its inspiration. First we must understand what gives the bible its authority. According to Merriam-Webster authority is the power to give orders or make decisions: the power or right to direct or control someone or something. The bible receives its authority because it is the revelation of God to us. “The authority of the Bible is established by its own claims. It is the word of God.” (Elwell, 2001). The Bible receives its authority because it is the word of God. Second we must understand the inspiration of the Bible. The Bible was written by many different men so we must see how this fits together. I believe that while the Bible was written by multiple men the ideas were all from God. I believe this because of the scriptures and what they say. For example 2 Peter 3:15-16 And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved. This is what our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you with the wisdom God gave him. The Bible tells us that the scriptures inspiration is God, and while it was written by multiple......

...Carrie Cochran Biblical Worldview Paper Theo 201 As a young child I have always wanted to work in the medical field and began studying medical books in the fifth grade. I had a passion for oncology at such a young age that I assumed that was the field I would be going into. As a young child we attended church until my parents became angry with God for my mom’s illness. So my desire to enter into the medical field was one that was my plan. A plan that I never prayed for nor did I ask His will in my life but little did I know it was where he wanted me. While in college pursing my nursing degree my grandfather, who was my role model, my best friend and my biggest supporter entered the hospital in what would be his last week of life. He was losing a two year battle with liver cancer and being in the stage of school where I had clinical rotations and I knew what was going on with his body in exact stages he was entering. That alone made the grieving process incredibly hard. There was one night in particular that startled me so much that I reconsidered my entire career as in the medical field. I didn’t leave his side, I was there day in and day out watching him, crying over him and helping take care of him. He was sound asleep and started taking deep breathes that lasted longer and longer in between before he would take another breath and I just knew it was time. He had been a pretty much unable to use his limbs, sit up or raise his head up but he sat......

Theo 104 Essay 1

...THEO 104 – D38 Laura DeMoor July 9, 2016 Experience With Theology Essay For me, the word theology means the study of God, or the study of why God does certain things. I have never given much more thought to the word, other than the basic meaning of it. I think theology helps us to really understand the nature of God, as well as the science behind his character and his attributes. When I was younger, my pastor was discussing theology. At that age, I just thought this word meant studying God’s attributes. When I was a little bit older, my mom told me to look at the root words in the word theology, and I found that the word “theology” comes from two Greek words – theos meaning “God” and –ology, meaning “word” or the study of the word. So the word’s literal meaning is God’s word or the study of it. Now, I think it describes God and his word but it also tries to help us, as Christians, understand why God puts us through the things He does. Sometimes, it can be hard to really grasp why God has bad things happen or good things happen. Obviously, I would love a passing grade in this course, but I would also love to learn the real meaning of the word theology, and not some meaning I came up with when I was a child. I’ve taken several Bible courses before at this school and at my old college, but I have never taken a theology class. I feel like I still am lacking in my knowledge about God and the Bible, so I am hoping that this class will teach me more. I think in order......

Thesis Statement: in view of the fact that my own outlook on women’s responsibility in ministry is in between social equality and Complementarian; however I will attempt to show that women have a part in ministry, through the assessment of these two differing points of views as offered in the principal book Two Views on Women In Ministry and as contrasted with other academic books. Introduction: Dr. James R.

The arrangement of analysis appear to evaluate and distinguish in a reasonable, impartial way that supply the one who reads with a good insight of the dispute, with opposing opinions offered at the conclusion of every article.
