God is Love

Why are we Christians? We are Christians simply because of Christ. We have recognized in His human nature the perfect embodiment of God, which was expressed through His actions, and reported by His closest friends while He was among us. His character, expressed in His actions, also reveals who He is as a God. The highest revelation of God through the history of communication between Him and us was when He revealed Himself in human flesh.

Why are we Christians? We are Christians simply because of Christ. We have recognized in His humanan nature the perfect embodiment of God which was expressed through His actions, reported by His closest friends while He was among us. The highest revelation of God through the history of communication between Him and us, was when He revealed Himself in human flesh. It is the culmination of God's revelation, where He tried to tell us one important thing, namely about His exceeding love for the dignity of our human nature, which was created in His image. Through God's revealed love we get to know a God who is ready to sacrifice himself and suffer for us. Through Christ's crucifixion, God has revealed Himself to be vulnerable and showed us that He can experience pain. In this article, we represent reflections on God's Vulnerability taken from J. R. Lucas' article "The Vulnerability of God."

hellThis article is in two parts. The first one, "Biblical Reasons for the Doctrine of Hell as Eternal Torment," will examine all relevant biblical texts about hell and show that the Bible teaches that lost sinners, who died in unrepentant sin, will be punished with everlasting torment. The second part, "Apologetic Defense of the Doctrine of Hell as Eternal Torment," is more philosophical in approach and endeavors to explain how eternal torment of lost souls is metaphysically possible in the universe of a benevolent God. (Christian apologetics deals with scientific and philosophical arguments for Christian beliefs).

Sola Scriptura

The Sufficient and Final Authority of the Scriptures

torah
We believe that the Holy Scriptures, also known as the Bible, represent a body of writings written by prophets and apostles inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Scriptures represent God's revelation of His will to mankind: through the Scriptures we learn to know God and teachings of His Moral Law. We believe that the Holy Bible is the only infallible and final authority for the Church. In other words, we believe in the principle of Sola Scriptura: the Holy Bible is the only infallible source of God's revelation for the post-apostolic Church. We will show that Sola Scriptura is implicitly taught in the Bible, i.e. it can be inferred from certain biblical observations. Moreover, we will provide answers to typical objections against it, objections usually given by the Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox.
