Book excerpt: It was Owen's earnest regard that his readers should be brought into a condition of safety against the wiles of the devil, to break the force of his warnings and entreaties by ingenious speculations and irrelevant learning. Not merely in the warm appeals interspersed with his expositions, but in the patient care with which no nook of the heart is left unsearched, does the deep solicitude of Owen for the spiritual welfare of his readers appear. To one who reads the treatise in the spirit with which the author wrote it, --simply that he may judge his own heart, and know what temptation means, and be fully on his guard against it

Download or read book Impeccability and Temptation written by Johannes Grössl and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2021-04-13 with total page 316 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Christian theology, the teaching that Christ possessed both a human and divine will is central to the doctrine of two natures, but it also represents a logical paradox, raising questions about how a person can be both impeccable and subject to temptation. This volume explores these questions through an analytic theology approach, bringing together 15 original papers that explore the implications of a strong libertarian concept of free will for Christology. With perspectives from systematic theologians, philosophers, and biblical scholars, several chapters also offer a comparative theology approach, examining the concept of impeccability in the Muslim tradition. Therefore, this volume will be of interest to scholars and graduate students working in analytic theology, biblical scholarship, systematic theology, and Christian-Islamic dialogue.

Download or read book Salvation Through Temptation written by Benjamin E. Heidgerken and published by CUA Press. This book was released on 2021-06-04 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Salvation through Temptation describes the development of predominant Greek and Latin Christian conceptions of temptation and of the work of Christ to heal and restore humankind in the context of that temptation, focusing on Maximus the Confessor and Thomas Aquinas as well-developed examples of Greek and Latin thought on these matters. Maximus and Thomas represent two trajectories concerning the woundedness of human emotionality in the wake of the primordial human sin. Heidgerken argues that Maximus stands in essential continuity with earlier Greek ascetic theology, which conceives of the weakness of fallen humankind in demonological categories, so that the Pauline law of sin is bound to external demonic agents that act upon the human mind through thoughts, desires, and sensory impressions. For Thomas, on the other hand, this wound consists primarily of an internal disordering of the faculties that results from the withdrawal of original grace: concupiscence or the fomes peccati. Yet even in this framework, the devil plays a significant role in Thomas’s account of postlapsarian temptation. On the basis of these differing frameworks for human temptation, Heidgerken demonstrates the centrality of Christ’s exemplarity in the Greek account and the centrality of Christ’s moral perfections in the Latin account. As a consequence of these emphases, the Greek tradition of Maximus places distinct limits on the ability of human emotionality (even that of Christ) to be perfected in this life, whereas Thomas’s approach allows Christ to completely embody a perfected form of human emotionality in his earthly life. Reciprocally, Thomas’s account of Christ’s moral perfections and virtue places distinct limits on his affirmation of Christ’s experience of postlapsarian temptation, whereas Maximus’s account allows for Christ to experience interior forms of temptation that more closely mirror the concrete moral experiences and circumstances of fallen human beings. Salvation through Temptation recommends a retrieval of early ascetic theology and demonology as the best contemporary systematic and ecumenically-viable approach to Christ’s temptation and victory over the devil.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Lead Us Not Into Temptation is a spiritual book as given to me by God. This book is different from other spiritual books in that it connects man with his sole link to God and that is through his own soul. Regardless of one’s religion or persuasion, this book is for all people to find their way back to God. For secularism, religion and intellectualism have failed miserably in bringing true peace and love into this world, be it in the past, our present and probably in our future also. Jesus once said, “truly, truly you must be born again of the spirit. For that which is of water is water (the body), and that which is of spirit is spirit. For the Father is spirit and for us to worship Him we must worship in spirit and in truth.” This is a universal law, the same for all people all over the world, regardless of their religious beliefs. For we all worship the same one God, and He must be worshipped in spirit and in truth. The purpose of this book is to help people change from their secular life to a spiritual life and to develop a closer walk with God in their daily lives. By which we then begin to worship God the Father in spirit and in truth. This is the one pathway never chosen by man and is the pathway to peace on earth and good will towards all men. It is the pathway to the salvation for all mankind. Part One: Lead Us Not Into Temptation explores the history of man back to the Garden of Eden and the first temptation where man falls from grace. Man after that incident embarks on a journey of secularism, worldliness and materiality, which only separates him more and more from God. Although man has had the opportunity to live in the time of the great prophets of God and with Jesus himself, he has still maintained a steady course in his secular/worldly lifestyle constantly refusing to follow the spiritual path of God. This stubbornness of man has brought him to where we find our world today, in the grips of a huge recession and probably a depression, and world tensions and terrorism threatening the peace of the world. Part Two: Deliver Us From Evil, teaches how one can develop a life of spirituality and redemption from both God and from oneself. I begin with the prophecies of God as given to us in the Holy Bible and in the Bible codes. I explain how these prophecies line up with our generation living on Earth right now and are 100% accurate and have all been fulfilled to date. They are God’s warning to us that we cannot go on living worldly/secularly lives for we are reaching the end of the road: the End Times as predicted in the bible. It is a warning meaning we can change the future from doom and gloom to eternal bliss, but it is up to each of us. That unless we are willing to make some very fundamental changes in our lives towards one another and to God, we won’t survive as a civilization That without faith, hope and love in God we are doomed to repeat our mistakes. I teach the power of prayer and how that through prayer with God, one will find the answer and changes for their lives. I show how a prayer life is the only link we have to God the Father. Through daily prayer, one will begin the process of recreating a life of spirituality. I teach the principles of a spiritual life and the fruits of God’s Holy Spirit. How God works the fruits into your life changing you from your former self (imperfections and dislikes) into the new person filled with the wonderful fruits of God’s Holy Spirit. I explain that the key of life is love for without love there could be no God, no universe, no us. This book is for all people of all races, all religions to find the cure to life that has escaped them all through the years. It will unite the reader to a one to one relation with God and a healing and rebirth for their souls.

Download or read book The First Temptation written by Edwin Zackrison and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2015-10-22 with total page 520 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Christian thought, original sin is the theological term for describing the state or condition of universal sinfulness where humans are found as the result of Adams sin according to the Biblical account. It stands distinct from actual sin, or that voluntary, conscious transgression of the law of God. The doctrine of original sin purports to provide a systematic, theological explanation of the Biblical data regarding the radical sinfulness of the human race. This entails the Biblical data as well as the study of many significant Christian thinkers and writers. The First Temptation explores the early attempts (1850-1900) of Seventh-day Adventist theologians to understand where this doctrine fit into their understanding of human salvation. Inheriting most of their theology from New England in the mid-1800s, these SDA theologians set about to correct what they considered was a perversion of Protestant thought. But in their pursuit, they found the doctrine becoming the victim of battles between New England and New Haven Theology. This book makes a profound contribution to the history of an idea central to the Christian faith. As the saying goes, If one does not understand the nature of the problem, one cannot comprehend the fixing of the problem. There is a difference between chronicle and history. Chronicle records what happened; history illuminates what happened. Chronicle provides information, history provides understanding. Professor Zackrisons study is history in the best sense of the word. It is an example of historical theology at its best. RICHARD RICE, LOMA LINDA UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR Original sin was committed by our first parents, and has been passed on to every one of their descendants. Adventists have always taught this, as it is implicit in our teaching of the New Birth. W. G. C. MURDOCH, SDA THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY DEAN AND THEOLOGIAN

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Our America is one where many Christians do not live life like Christ nor do they read the Bible. The average American Christian is not engaged in service and gives less to the cause of Christ than they do for their entertainment. As part of the church, we need to be walking like Christ and encouraging others. Testing and Temptations will guide you through living for Christ in the midst of trials in your life. We all experience many trials that can be either tests or temptations, but little regard is ever given to what these words mean. Have you ever thought about the concepts behind testing and temptations or what role they may play in your life? While listening in on a sermon and constantly hearing the pastor fumble over test and tempt, the concept behind the book Testing and Temptations was born. In this book, we will examine the differences between tests and temptations and examine four key principles of Testing and Temptations: The Source of the Trial The Method the Trial Works in Us Where the Trial Leads Us The Intention behind the Trial Once we understand how Testing and Temptations are applied in our lives, we will be in a key position to understand how we can leverage our trials in order to grow closer to Christ. Thomas Murosky outlines simple steps to grow closer to God and live a more holy life, dedicated to the service of God.
