Re: How do these two Biblical truths inform your theology?

I've been stewing over the title because some people seem to see the title assume whatever they want and ignore the clarifications in the OP....so here is the clarification.



In Genesis 1:27

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.



we see that God created man in His image....



In Ecclesiastes 12:13

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”



The duty of man is to fear God and obey Him.....



It seems that all too often we forget these passages when we look at the theology we hold to.  Maybe I am wrong it just seems to be what I see.  So how do these two Biblical truths inform your theology?

Hi Lori... Why are you stewing about those two verses?  In Genesis 1:27, Is it not wonderful to know that GOD loved us so much he made us in His image. Just the thought of seeing Him as HE is when He takes His Bride to Heaven does not make me "stew over" it but rather jump for joy in this knowing.

In  Ecclesiastes 12:13...God is talking to the Jewish People. We of course NEED to Fear GOD. For if we do not Fear GOD, than our existence is meaningless. We place Man's sovereignty over God's  sovereignty. If we fear GOD, we will follow where we are lead by the Holy Spirit. For those that do not fear God, their fate will be many times worse than the fate of the those in the land of Shinar,  the Tower of Babel in the time of Nimrod. Gen 11:1-6

While the Ten Commandments spoken of in Ecc 12:13 were for the Nation of Israel, many of those Commandments were again spoken by Jesus Christ and placed in His Gospel. These are the Commandments we of HIS Church need to follow.

Again, there is nothing to stew over, for those "Commandments of Moses" that could not possibly be fulfilled by His Bride were removed by Jesus Christ in His Gospel. 1 Cor 15:1-4

Fear, Love, Learning and Following the Gospel of Jesus Christ (according to Scriptures),HIS WORD, is the only path to righteousness.

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
