Doctrine of Jesus Christ
The six principles of sin, faith, water baptism, Holy Spirit baptism, resurrection and judgment taught by Jesus Christ to his followers to establish a solid foundation to prepare for deeper growth and learning about the LORD God, and His Will and Ways. (Hebrews 6:1-3)
The reality that one can begin at any given point and go outward and yet never arrive. (Contrast - Infinity)
An abstinence of eating in discipline to approach and know God more intimately.
Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.
Justification - Past (Phase 1) I Have Been Saved from the penalty of sin (FREE) (Christian)
Sanctification - Present (Phase 2) I Am Being Saved from the power of sin (Costly) (Disciple)
Glorification - Future (Phase 3) I Will Be Saved from the presence of sin (Face-to-Face) (Glorified Bodies)
A chant of praise derived from Psalms 113-118 and used in the celebration of Jewish holidays such as Passover, Shabuoth, Sukkoth, Hanukkah, and Rosh Hodesh. The priests chanted these praises in the Temple while the Passover lamb was being slain, which is sometimes called the "Egyptian Hallel." The praise songs were also sung by the Levite priests in chanted verse by verse, and the worshippers would repeat the verses or sing Hallelujahs in response.
“This [is] the day [which] the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24) is a hallel of Christian tradition in celebration and praise, especially during the beginning of Holy Week on Palm Sunday, as the Faithful remember Jesus Christ's Messianic entrance into Jerusalem as our King.
A state of nothingness that Monks of the 13th and 14th centuries attempted to achieve through breathing techniques and repetitive prayers to achieve a state of self-hypnosis. This practice was intended to clear the mind of the monk in order for him to see God by emptying their mind of thoughts, into which God might move. The practice was based on Jesus Christ’s instructions in the Gospel of Matthew 6:6 to “enter into thy closet” to pray.
The lack of respect and reverence for the LORD God and His sacred things
A late second-century Christian from Anatolia who encountered Gnosticism in AD 180. He hated Gnosticism and the way it denigrated the material world; he believed that the LORD God took an active interest; so he wrote a scathing book to describe and attack its existence. He disagreed with the way it split Christ, refusing to recognize his humanity, and the way the belief distinguished the differences between the Old and New Testament Gods. Irenaeus insisted that Christianity must be rooted in Old Testament times and its Jewish past, and was not part of a "mystery" or secretively handed-down tradition of faith. His stance led to the setting of standards that would become orthodoxy of the Church. In his book, "Against heresies", Irenaeus identified certain churches as bearing apostolic tradition, and he declared the church of Rome should be the primary authority. (Hill, 65-68)
