By the end of days, it is written that "the kingdoms of this world have become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ, and He will reign forever and ever" (Rev. 11:15b). On the journey to those days; however, a key question in the discussions of Yoder and Niebuhr is "whether the differences in the ways in which Christians conceive their duty and understand good and evil are simply correlated with the variety of cultural, psychological, and sociological patterns evident in their lives, or whether they may be related to variations in the Christian situation before God" (Stassen, et al, 1996, p. 19). This is by no means a small issue, especially as one seeks to communicate with the diverse cultures of our earth.
In a paper (1,500-2,000 words) using this module's readings and Yoder's and Niebuhr's views, how would you respond to the aforementioned question? Was the "Christian situation before God" decided by Christ's sacrifice? Why or why not? Explain and support your conclusions.

Was the "Christian situation before God" decided by Christ's sacrifice? Why or why not? Explain and support your conclusions.
Yoder and Niebuhr’s argument on whether the differences in the ways in which Christians conceive their duty as well as understand good and evil are not related to the variety of cultural, psychological and sociological patterns evident in their lives. The differences are linked with the Christian situation before God was determined by Christ’s sacrifice. Different literature has been identified in connection to the description of Christian’s understanding of right and wrong. This essay aims at supporting that the situation of Christians before God was decided by the sacrifice made by Christ on the cross.
