MAN




Man was created by God in His image and will live eternally in heaven or hell.

 

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27 (KJV)


And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal. Matthew 25:46 (KJV)


 


When Adam sinned, all sinned and are at enmity with God. None are righteous and none seek after the true God.


As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.


Romans 3:10-12 (KJV)


For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;


Romans 3:23 (KJV)


All are conceived in sin, born spiritually dead, and separated from God, enslaved to sin, guilty, condemned and helpless to save themselves.


Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.


Psalm 51:5 (KJV)


But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.


Isaiah 59:2 (KJV)


 


Mans only hope to be saved from the full fury of God’s wrath and punishment is to obey the Gospel of the Lord Jesus.


 


Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;


2 Thessalonians 1:9(KJV)


He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.


John 3:36(KJV)

GOD




God is one, who exist eternally in three Persons, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.



Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:
Deuteronomy 6:4 (KJV)

 
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
1 John 5:7 (KJV)

 

God is the Creator and rules with sovereign control over His creation. He is subject to no one and cannot be thwarted by anyone.

 The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all
Psalm 103:19 (KJV)


Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
Romans 9:18 (KJV)

 

God is majestic in holiness and cannot look on wickedness. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne. Every man will give an account to Him.

 

Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.
Psalm 97:2 (KJV)

 

 And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:
1Peter 1:17 (KJV)

 

 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
Revelation 20:12 (KJV)

God is love and has provided a way of salvation through His mercy and grace

But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
James 4:6 (KJV)

 

I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Luke 18:14 (KJV)

 

 

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:16 (KJV)

The Responsibility of Wife, According to Dawn



Despite our differing beliefs, David and I often agree on the fundamental elements of a happy, functional, and healthy marriage. (In some surprising ways, at that.)  Most of the core marriage values David presented with Scriptural support I stand behind as well, I just learned them passively from those around me and from my own instinctual, internal compass. These parallels were valuable assets to me as I embarked on the One Way to Grace journey. Had I not been able to find pieces of David's perspective incorporated into such an important part of my own life, my marriage, I'm not sure I would have been able to capture his voice within the experiences included in the memoir.
In the following post, I talk more about the dynamics of my marriage and what I believe it means to be a wife.





The Biblical View of Marriage






The Bible has a high view of marriage. It is to be a lifelong plan, not a convenience that can be disposed of in a lawyer's office. Marriage is a union of man and woman, having a lifetime commitment and covenant with God and with each other, placing God as the head of the marriage. A three way relationship directed by God Almighty leading to a blessed marriage.
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. 
Hebrews 13:4
