Theologically, this plague is a punishment for humans who are willing to exploit nature. This epidemic is also a form of God's warning in the midst of increasingly corrupted human morality, which eases sinful acts without heeding the truth of God's word. This study concludes that the theological response to the covid-19 pandemic is to be more vigilant spiritually and build a life that glorifies God.

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) in the past was something deviant, but nowadays it has become a trend that is even considered natural by many people. This of course has a sociological impact. There is a view that says that the behavior of LGBT people is a biological natural behavior, so it needs to be accepted as something that cannot be changed. Some theories agree that LGBT behavior is influenced by environmental, parenting, and economic factors so that there are pros and cons for LGBT people. This study aims to see the sociological influence of the LGBT community by using a literature review. The results of the study show that LGBT is contrary to the truth of God's creation, namely the clear separation of sex, namely male and female. Also, this is contrary to the design of marriage that God built, namely heterosexuality and monogamy.

The context of understanding the humanity and innocence of Jesus gave rise a theological controversy. The reason is, the all-perfect God who became human in Jesus Christ is difficult to maintain because He is a limited figure and is considered to have made mistakes. For example Jesus' ignorance regarding the person who touched His robe (Mark 5:30-32 and Luke 8 :45), Jesus' ignorance of what will happen in the last days (Mark 13:27-32), Jesus' mistake in calling Zechariah son of Berechiah (Matthew 23:35; 2 Chronicles 24:20) and the wrong behavior of Jesus who was angry in the Temple (Matthew 21:12-16; Luke 19:45-46; John 2:15-16). The purpose of this study is to provide a biblical description in an apologetic frame as a form of a refutation of these assumptions. This study uses a qualitative method with an apologetic approach. An understanding of the person of Jesus needs to be seen comprehensively with the context that binds it. The assumptions about Jesus' guilt and ignorance are not substantially based on a comprehensive and credible interpretation.

The view of God which is reasoned logically and rationally brings the concept of God as an experience and not a transcendent person. Therefore, any form of immanence theology cannot be accepted as biblical teaching. Through a literature study approach, it is concluded that the existence of a transcendent and immanent God can counter the principles of immanence theology. God is present and actively participates in the world to give believers rest in the knowledge that no place or situation is too far away to be under God's protective hands. And moreover, God is present supernaturally and transcendentally far beyond human reason and logic, both in the form of religiosity that is built and one's relationship with the world.

The holiness of a priest is an important review in this paper based on the study of the text in the book entitled Six Books on the Priesthood written by John Chrysostom. A book dealing with the priesthood. The holiness of life is not only seen from one aspect, but there are three things that must be considered both in the position as a representative of Christ, in shepherding, and spiritual growth through spiritual discipline. That is why an Imam has a very noble job despite many difficulties and temptations. Only the priest is qualified to bring offerings to God on a holy (intermediary) altar. The priest is not only responsible for his status as a representative of Christ (church confirmation) but must lead Christ's sheep to salvation even if his own life is at stake. Grace and mercy as well as an intimate relationship with God will further purify the heart, soul, and mind of a priest so that through the spiritual discipline he does (prayer and repentance) more and more reflect Christ in his life, including his pastorate.
