  • Analysis On Bulgaria - 4,272 words
    Analysis On Bulgaria External historical events often changed Bulgaria's national boundaries in its first century of existence, natural terrain features defined most boundaries after 1944, and no significant group of people suffered serious economic hardship because of border delineation. Postwar Bulgaria contained a large percentage of the ethnic Bulgarian people, although numerous migrations into and out of Bulgaria occurred at various times. None of the country's borders was officially disputed in 1991, although nationalist Bulgarians continued to claim that Bulgaria's share of Macedonia--which it shared with both Yugoslavia and Greece--was less than just because of the ethnic connection ...

  • Church Buildings - 678 words
    Church Buildings Church buildings have a special significance that distinguishes them from public hall or commercial meeting places. They are set apart, specially dedicated to God for specific purpose of worship, religious education, fellowship, and service. Priority in the use of church buildings should be given to those spiritual ministries of the church itself and to the community it serves through its witness and program. Individuals and groups who traditionally use church buildings include church staff members, the congregation, church organizations, wedding parties, funerals, and denominational agencies. Some churches restrict the use of their facilities to their own membership. Others ...

  • Evil Problem - 1,173 words
    Evil Problem "If it turns out that there is a God, I don't think that he's evil...the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever." -Woody Allen The Problem of Evil From the viewpoint of theodicy, the problem of evil lies in its origin: Does evil come from God? In spite of God? Using theodicy to define evil is basically an attempt to affirm Gods omnipotence and his/her love for humans, with the existence of evil and without contradiction. Depending on your religious background, the weight each of these options carry may vary greatly. A theologian may argue that evil is not a theoretical problem at all, as for it to be a problem, one must question Gods power, char ...

  • God And Doubts - 733 words
    God And Doubts "Mommy, I've killed God." You wanted a scar; there it is, plain as day (no two-level, deep meanings attached). My scar isn't external, nor, do I suppose, is it internal. Heck, I don't know what it is but all my life I know it's been my scar, my burden. I have a problem with Christianity. But I don't show disrespect to those who choose to follow it (unless they try to impose their beliefs on me), and I don't force my thoughts on anyone (you are choosing to read this). You want sex, intoxication, violence, incest and death? Read the Bible! Though, on second thought, maybe you should stick to 'Lost Souls' by Poppy Z. Brite, it's much better. I killed God when I was still little; ...

  • Government And School - 1,064 words
    ... rimelow, 52) Where does all the money go? In the LAUSD only 36 % of school funding is spent on teacher salaries, textbooks, and supplies. Thirty-one people are paid over $100,000 a year, only one of which is a teacher. Statewide in California, only 44 percent of the people employed by the school system are teachers. In the independent schools in California, 86 percent of school employees are teachers. (Harmer, 41-43) The situation is the same nationwide. Researcher Michael Fisher found that only 25.7% of funds reach the classroom in Milwaukee schools. (McGroarty, 21) It is plain to see that throwing more money at schools and calling it reform won't help the situation. Leaders of the Nati ...

  • Imagery In The Red Badge Of Courage - 2,668 words
    Imagery In The Red Badge Of Courage Imagery The cold passed reluctantly from the earth, and the retiring fogs revealed an army stretched out on the hills, resting. As the landscape changed from brown to green, the army awakened, and began to tremble with eagerness at the noise of rumors. It cast its eyes upon the roads, which were growing from long troughs of liquid mud to proper thoroughfares. A river, amber-tinted in the shadow of its banks, purled at the army's feet; and at night, when the stream had become of a sorrowful blackness, one could see across it the red, eyelike gleam of hostile camp-fires set in the low brows of distant hills. Once a certain tall soldier developed virtues and ...

  • Separation Between State And Religion - 1,448 words
    ... he Free Speech and Free Exercise clauses protect. Distribution of Religious Literature An increasing number of students are requesting permission to distribute fliers and religious literature on public school campuses. This distribution of nonschool publications is not a new phenomenon but was common during the Vietnam War. Nevertheless, many schools are uncertain about the proper response to such requests, especially when the subject matter involves religion. Court decisions on the issue generally fall into two categories. A minority of decisions hold that schools can prohibit the distribution of any publication that is not sponsored by the school. Of course, the ban must be applied eve ...

    The state of Spain during the early years of the 20th century can be said to have been a state of great "unease". Spain was one of the first powers to loose her imperial influence, the state was politically unstable, industrially weak and had suffered some humiliating defeats. It can be said that these were the main causes that lead to the great instability of Spain during the Civil war and post civil war periods. Left-winged radicalism and nationalistic movements, such as the Catalan movement frequently came into conflict with the central government, which lead the government to use corruption more and more frequently as a form of control. The result was a military coup in 1923 lead by Migu ...

  • Transcendetalism: The New Religion - 2,036 words
    Transcendetalism: The New Religion Transcendentalism: The New Religion A. K. Rodriguez Transcendentalism: The New Religion According to The American Heritage Dictionary, the definition of religion is a belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as Creator or governor of the universe; a personalized system grounded in such belief; or a cause or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion (TAHD, 696). The American Heritage Dictionary provides a lexicon description of the word religion; however, the world provides a pragmatic description of religion. Religion has been the foundation of mans search for spiritual identity, for defining good and evil, and for inst ...

  • Turkey Religion - 303 words
    Turkey Religion Religion Islam is a monotheistic religion practiced by Muslims. They believe that Allah gave revelations to the Prophet Muhammed through the Angel Gabriel around A.D. 600. Jesus Christ and the prophets of the New Testament are accepted as Islamic precepts. During their rule of the Ottoman Empire, Islamic laws dictated the way of life for the Turks. In 1924 with the new republic government, Islamic Law was abolished as a state religion. The government removed religion from public policy and restricted it exclusively to personal faith. This led to the abolishment of the religions hierarchy and the closing and confiscation of the lodges, meeting places and monasteries as well as ...

  • Who Is Jesus - 384 words
    Who Is Jesus Lee Bell Mr. Motes Religion 105 November 3, 2000 Who is Jesus? Hundreds of years before Jesus' birth, the Old Testament of the Bible recorded the words of the prophets of Israel predicting His coming. The Old Testament, written by many people over a period of 1,500 years, contains more than 300 prophecies describing His appearance. All of these details came true, including his miraculous birth, His sinless life, His many miracles, His death and His resurrection. The life Jesus led, the miracles He did, the words He spoke, His death on the cross, His resurrection, His ascent to heaven - all point to the fact that He was not merely man, but more than man. Jesus claimed, I and the ...
