  • A History Of Christianity In Egypt - 1,135 words
    ... s the Thracian) however, responded by increasing persecutions in his territory of Egypt. The story is told that once before the Battle of Milvian Bridge (by which Constantine took complete control of the Western Empire) when the odds were greatly against him, Constantine beseeched God for help, praying in the Christian fashion, and won the day. He later adopted the Chi-Rho, a stylized monogram of the first letters of "Christus," as his standard, and led his armies to victory after victory. Because of this, Constantine was even more well-disposed towards the Christians, though he himself was not baptized a Christian until his deathbed.

  • A Myriad Of Mysteries Is Contained In The Pages Of The Old Testament For Centuries, Scholars Of Theology, Archeology And Anth - 1,419 words
    A myriad of mysteries is contained in the pages of the Old Testament. For centuries, scholars of theology, archeology and anthropology have labored to produce some explanation of the contradictions and impossibilities put forth in these texts. The ancient ruins of lost cities reveal evidence that some writings may be incorrectly dated, or even that they may be false. Faith and tradition give way to speculation that the Bible may be nothing more than a collection of ancient Israelite mythology. Some things, however, prove tantalizingly true. Temple Judaism and its monarchy, for example, are historical fact; the records of surrounding civilizations corroborate the chronicling of their place in ...

  • Assisted Suicide - 1,706 words
    Assisted Suicide Assisted suicide (or Euthanasia) is a topic undergoing serious debate. There exist two obvious and definite opinions regarding this controversy.

These groups bring both a religious and professional ethics perspective to the opinion ...

  • Book Review Suprises Of Christian Way - 1,092 words
    ... evil was built as a tool for Adam and Eve to experience. And I think that God did not just build the tree thinking maybe they will try it maybe not. I think he built it intentionally for Adam and Eve to taste the fruit and to taste the real life. And I also think that the first days in heaven were only as an introduction to both of the wise creatures. They had to learn about other creatures about grass about trees, and that they had to eat and so God's plan was to train them in heaven and than let them live on the earth. Chapter 5 Redemption involves more than a rescue. Redemption is also forgiving, guiding, sacrificing ones self. An example with Titanic shows a good definition of redemp ...

  • Mel Brooks As Jewish Comedian - 2,211 words
    Mel Brooks As Jewish Comedian Mel Brooks's membership in the elite club of Jewish comedians is essentially impossible to dispute. The question is whether or not his comedy is atypical. Satirizing Jewish history and klutzy old Jewish men is normal for Jewish comedy. However, "Don't be stupid, be a smarty, come and join the Nazi party," is something that you would not expect to hear in typical Jewish comedy (The Producers). Defined broadly, there are two forms which Mel Brooks's Jewish humor takes. The first form is to discuss specifically Jewish topics in a funny way. This is evident in The Producers and in the Inquisition scene from History of the World, Part I. The other form is to use cert ...

  • Monotheism - 705 words
    Monotheism In Hebrew history, there are many instances that show there is only one true God that the Hebrews worship. The worship of only one God is called Monotheism. Judaism is regarded by most to be the founding religion of God. A sign of monotheism is that Jews believed in a single, transcendent God who created the universe and continues to govern it. The same God who created the world revealed himself to the Israelites at Mount Sinai. When Moses went to talk to God on Mount Sinai, God had talked to the Israelites. He had told them that he was the God that had given them freedom from Egypt. God also gave Moses the Ten Commandments. The Israelites were about to enter the Promise land but ...

  • Moses A Leader - 1,576 words
    Moses A Leader Throughout history there have been many individuals who could be considered leaders, but some stand out among the others. An example of a superb leader is Moses in the Bible. Moses is viewed as a righteous man in Gods eyes and is chosen to lead the Hebrews out of oppression in Egypt. Contained in the story of Exodus are many examples of Moses sacrifices and the hardships he endured while freeing the Hebrews. The faith of Moses was tested numerous times throughout the story, and, in some instances, it seemed that Moses had lost faith, however, being the "righteous" man that he was, he stuck it out until the end. When compared to Noah and Abraham, Moses is a "pillar of faith" fo ...

  • The Book Of Deuteronomy Is The Fifth Book Of The Bible, Or The Last Book Of The Pentateuch Deuteronomy Literally Means Second - 883 words
    The Book of Deuteronomy is the fifth book of the Bible, or the last book of the Pentateuch. Deuteronomy literally means Second Law. This title conveys its nature and purpose. In other words, this book is a repetition of the law that was given to Moses and his people on Mount Sinai. It is also a completion and explanation of that law. Besides that, this book also continues on from previous events that happened in the first four books of the Bible. It helps to bring to focus and interpret the messages that are in the first four books. In Greek, Deuteronomy means a copy of this law in a book. In Hebrew, its name comes from the phrase, these are the words. The Book of Deuteronomy was written cen ...

  • Use Of Personality Pills - 809 words
    Use Of Personality Pills As we go farther and farther into the future, scientific discoveries are becoming more and more magnificent. A plethora of pills that can alter ones mind or personality are readily available by prescription, and yearly more pills are being produced. There is a strong moral dilemma over whether these pills should be taken, or accepted as part of normal life. The belief that one should be able to take a pill to change him or herself intellectually and personally is a very controversial subject. By taking a man-made substance to alter our personality, or increase our intelligence, it is literally changing the person who we are, or were meant to be. I believe that only c ...

  • Yahwist Vs Elohist - 572 words
    Yahwist Vs. Elohist The stories of the Yahwist and the Elohist have many similarities as well as differences. The main reason why they are this way is because they each have their own separate accounts of Yahweh. They are however linked together by the Older Federation Story. In this essay I will attempt to compare and contrast the story of the Yahwist and the Elohist and explain their respective goals, backgrounds, and historical circumstances. The main focus of the Yahwist story was Judah but it also concentrated on the David-Zion story. The beginning of the story discusses the creation of Adam and Eve in Genesis and it goes all the way until the destruction of the Tower of Babel. In the s ...

    Zionism And Zionists ZIONISM AND ZIONISTS In the years just after World War II, Zionism (the desire to rebuild a Jewish national presence in the Promised Land) became a popular Jewish cause all around the world. Many Jews who were not practicing Judaism at all with religion became involved with the establishment of the State of Israel. Even today, many years after the successful founding of the State of Israel, there are Jews whose only real tie to Judaism is their belief in Zionism and their support for the State of Israel. They are joined by many Jews who are members of synagogues and support a modern Jewish religious movement, but who also find their prime identity as Jews in the Zionist ...
