- Abortion And Bible - 835 words
Abortion And Bible I am for abortion in most cases. It is my personal belief that an unborn fetus is not a living being. At the time of birth, when the fetus is out of the mother's womb and breathing on it's own, then it is to be considered a living being in my opinion. Let me touch on the religious aspect of abortion since the original author has elected to mention it. I did some research on the biblical aspects and was surprised to find some interesting interpretations on the subject. The Bible doesn't seem to tackle the topic of abortion directly. Roy Bowen Ward quotes two anti-abortion books in his essay on the personhood of the fetus: John T. Noonan (1970) said: "The Old Testament has n ...

... od alone operating from within, and not of man working-or rather playing-from without. If these offences be taken away, worse will follow. For they are thus given over by the wrath of God to reprobation, that they may become incorrigible, as Ecclesiastes says, for every one who is incorrigible is rendered worse rather than better by correction. Farewell in the Lord; pardon my words, and pray the Lord for my sinning soul." "Martin Luther's to George Spalatin," from Luthers Correspondence and Other Contemporary, Letters, trans. by P.

- Ecclesiates 3:18 - 354 words
Ecclesiates 3:1-8 Interpretation of Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 The Bible verses Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 are Solomons words as he is telling of the relationship that we may have with God and of His master plan. We are to understand Gods impeccable timing, absolute control, magnificent grace, and eternal glory. The beginning of the excerpt makes the point that every event that will ever take place on Earth has a designated time that it will happen. As such, it has already been planned out by someone or something greater than anyone on this Earth, God. The Lord God has a time for you to be born and to die, a time for life and for death. We are also told that nothing in this world is permanent by the verse a ...

- Fahrenheit 451 By Bradbury - 549 words
Fahrenheit 451 By Bradbury In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Montag is given the choice to memorize many books. He is also given the choice to learn many different pieces from the Bible. Ecclesiastes is a great choice for Montag to memorize. There are many different bits of information from Ecclesiastes that are very similar to the several details and events that occur in Fahrenheit 451. Ecclesiastes talks about vanity in mans private life, vanity in civil life, and also, true wisdom. All of these are heavily cited in the book. This is why I feel that Montag should have memorized Ecclesiastes. Vanity in mans private life was a major theme in the book. Just look at how Mildred complained abo ...

- Liberation How Desirable - 467 words
Liberation - How Desirable The first man and woman turned their backs on God. But having gained the "liberation" they wanted they now had to manage affairs as best they could. They soon discovered that their best was far from good enough. Inexperience and limited knowledge led to problems. That is why many of us have become victims of discrimination or injustice. That is why all of us have come into bondage to human imperfections, why we get sick, suffer abnormal physical and mental pain, and shed tears of sorrow. Or, why "all creation keeps on groaning together and being in pain together until now."-Romans 8: 22. Never before have so many men wanted liberation from authority of employers an ...

- Sun Also Rises By Hemingway - 1,503 words
... himself alone and unloved. Hemingway points out his narrators desertedness when Romero leaves Brett, and she sends to Jake for help. Her telegrams end only with her name while he signs his response, LOVE JAKE. But, in his return to Brett, Jake demonstrates that he has learned from his failure and, in that, displays his ultimate heroism and recuperation of his morality. The final lines of the novel indicate his new perspective as a man reborn with nothing but a heightened understanding of how he must live his life. He has reconciled with his loss of sexuality and knows that he must search for gratification in unique ways, like bull-fighting, rather than in the crass sexuality intimated b ...

- The Death Penalty - 846 words
The Death Penalty In the past, people have invariably felt that if they had been wronged in some way, it was his or her right to take vengeance on the person that had wronged them. This mentality still exists, even today, but in a lesser form because the law has now outlined a person's rights and developed punishments that conform to those rights, yet allow for the retribution for their crime. However, some feel that those laws and punishments are too lax and criminals of today take advantage of them, ie. organized crime, knowing very well that the punishments for their crime, whether it be murder, theft, or any other number of criminal activities, will be so negligible that it may be well w ...

- The Formation Of The Biblical Canon - 1,549 words
The Formation Of The Biblical Canon The Canon of Biblical Writings For centuries now Christians have claimed to possess the special revelation of an omnipotent, loving Deity who is sovereign over all of His creation. This special revelation is in written form and is what has come to be known as The Bible which consists of two books. The first book is the Hebrew Scriptures, written by prophets in a time that was before Christ, and the second book is the New Testament, which was written by Apostles and disciples of the risen Lord after His ascension. It is well documented that Christians in the context of the early first century were used to viewing a set of writings as being not only authorit ...

- The Wild Duck - 1,449 words
The Wild Duck In the Wild Duck, Henrik Ibsen begins his play by emphasizing the value of color and light. He uses the theme of light to contrast Old Werle, a stingy rich man, with Old Ekdal, a poor helpless man. Ibsen connects the color green with the loss of eyesight of Old Werle. A possible affair between Old Werle and Gina, Hedvig's mother, may suggest the cause of Hedvig's loss of sight. By using sun and moon, Ibsen establishes the atmosphere of the scene. The story line deteriorates from peaceful to tragic. Similarly, does the setting in the last four acts. In the Wild Duck, Henrik Ibsen employs the image of light to portray certain characteristics in order to construct the plot and to ...
