Our ideology shapes our outlook, actions, and lifestyle.
A core part of of our ideology is our faith or beliefs. To a large extent what we know and hold to be matters.
As God’s incarnate, Jesus’ teaching and ministry demonstrated his power and authority over the cosmos.
He demonstrated power over death, and the authority to forgive sins. Hence Paul describes him as the image of the invisible God (Col. 1:15).
Jesus exposes knowledge gaps in scriptures as he corrects wrong ideas and traditions. As a health warning, this position puts to question the doctrine or notion of Biblical Inerrancy. Hence he is the last interpreter of the Scriptures.
Therefore, in a bid to make a connection between Jesus’ divine nature as part of their everyday life, Paul urges the church in Philippi to emulate Christ’s self-emptying. (Phil. 2)
