  • 10 Commandments In Schools - 349 words
    10 Commandments In Schools P.S. 233-03 Ed Mashek Dr. Hicks 02/08/01 Assignment #1 The 1st Amendment in Schools Right now in Kentucky, there is a somewhat heated debate going on about whether or not the 10 Commandments should be posted in public schools. The people, schools, and our state and federal governments all seem to have their own opinion, but which one is the right one? That is, which one follows the guidelines set in the Bill of Rights? Legally speaking, schools in Kentucky were required to display the Ten Commandments, until the Supreme Court declared that law unconstitutional. Some Kentucky residents support this action, while others are outraged by it. In the Courier-Journals Rea ...

  • 1984 Vs Animal Farm - 1,262 words
    ... n with us. Animal Farm basically deals with how seeking totalitarian power can and will destroy any attempt at revolution and how power can corrupt even the most probable utopias. One night when Farmer Jones has gone to bed drunk, Old Major, the pig in charge of all, assembles all of the animals of Manor Farm to tell them of a dream he had concerning man's and animal's place in life. He points out how animals are literally worked to death by man, who consumes but does not produce, and thus must remove man by means of rebellion. Shortly thereafter, he dies and the animals begin preparation for this Revolution, whenever it may come. When the hungry animals attack and drive off Jones one da ...

  • A Comparison Of Judaism, Islam, Christianity - 1,507 words
    A Comparison Of Judaism, Islam, & Christianity Religion is one of the driving forces behind many of the events and attitudes that have shaped our world. Throughout the centuries, laws have been enacted; cities and countries have been created and destroyed; and wars have been fought, all to promulgate or protect one religion or another. This paper will examine aspects of the three major Western religions of the world: Judaism, Islam, and Christianity. Topics covered will include the origin of all three religions, the view of God held by each tradition, and conflicts. Several of the beliefs of these religions will be examined, such as judgment, and the Trinity. Origin of Judaism The origins of ...

  • 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 ...

  • Abortion And Chrisiananity - 895 words
    Abortion And Chrisiananity Abortion The Christian belief in the sanctity of life is based on the teachings of famous Christians and on what they read in the bible, the teachings of Jesus. A quote from the bible which seems to support the view that abortion is wrong is from Psalm 139:13, verses 15-16: You created every part of me; you put me together in my mother's womb When my bones were being formed, Carefully put me together in my mother's womb. When I was growing there in secret, You knew that I was there -You saw me before I was born. The days allotted to me Had all been recorded in your book, before any of them ever began. This seems to be saying that god has already begun to have an in ...

    ... before as well as after, birth" (Wilke 94). The unborn are beginning to gain more rights. From state to state, legal rights of an unborn child can mean the difference between the death of a fetus being a criminal act to being just a matter of legal consequence. Mothers are now starting to be prosecuted for harming their babies through drug and alcohol abuse. Drunk drivers are also being punished in some states for injuring fetuses. Accidents like these would have gone without punishment up until a few years ago. Almost half of the states, such as Delaware, do not consider the killing of a fetus as murder unless the child is born and then dies (USA Today). Patricia Bast Lyman added to th ...

  • Abortion, The Pope And Peter Singer - 1,563 words
    Abortion, The Pope And Peter Singer Abortion is one of the most controversial issues today. It has become a question of not only ethics, but morals. In the 1973 case of Roe v Wade the Supreme Court ruled that a woman has the right to terminate a pregnancy by abortion within the first six months of the pregnancy. However, conservative Presidents have changed the legislation enough to allow states to restrict abortion in various ways (Practical Ethics, Peter Singer). In the following paper, I will summarize the views on abortion of Pope John Paul II and philosopher, Peter Singer. These two men have very conflicting opinions about abortion. Pope John Paul IIs Argument: This argument is very ada ...

  • Agnostic I Believe That I Am Agnostic Because I Dont Know What To Think About Religion When It Comes To Saying Whether I Beli - 570 words
    Agnostic I believe that I am agnostic because I dont know what to think about religion. When it comes to saying whether I believe in God or not, I feel that I have not yet come to a complete understanding of Gods existence. This tends to be a vicious cycle which constantly runs through my head. Ever since I can remember, I was taught through my family and church that this being does exist, but as I grew older I began to question whether this almighty being really does exist. How can I believe that this being exists when every day I watch the news and hear of all the tragedy that is happening in the world. I have been taught through my family and church that God is the creator and supreme rul ...

  • Assited Suicide - 511 words
    Assited Suicide The man who, in a fit of melancholy, kills himself today would have wanted to live had he a week.(Voltaire) In the U.S. assisted suicide has become all too common. Mr. Jack Kevorkian, otherwise known as Dr. Death, might be the reason for this unethical uprising. Assisted suicide in those who fear they are too old, mentally unstable, or suffering from an incurable illness, doesnt solve any problems. Suicide isnt the proper way to deal with anything. Assisted suicide is morally wrong, illegal, and unjustifiable. Assisted suicide is in my opinion, illegal. I always thought that suicide meant people killed themselves. If thats the case than wouldnt assisted suicide be murder? Tak ...

How does it come about that a Muslim happens to be expounding prophecies from the Jewish and Christian Scriptures?

  • Birth Stones - 767 words
    Birth Stones From prehistoric shamans to modern consumerism birth stones have been a part of human life. Beginning as magical talismans, they have been used for thousands of years to cure the sick, strengthen the weak, and decorate the rich. Birth stones are a modern fad powered by the wisdom of history. In prehistoric times, every village had a shaman, or witch. The shaman would cast spells to do all sorts of things within the village. After time, shamans discovered that different rocks and minerals did different things. Gold would give energy and strength, while silver would grant love. The same thing worked with gems. Each was presented with a different quality in life that the stone coul ...

  • 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 ...

  • British Church In The 14th Century - 1,396 words
    British Church In The 14Th Century In the summer of 1381 a large group of peasants led by Wat Tyler stormed London. These peasants, unwilling to pay another poll tax to pay for an unpopular war against France and discontent with unfair labor wages, freed prisoners from London prisons, killed merchants, and razed the home of John of Gaunt, considered the creator of the poll tax. Perhaps more important, however, was the rebels attack on the Temple, a symbol of the British Church's wealth and power. The rebels burned the charters, legal records of the Church's vast land-holdings, stored within the Temple. This act - a religious building being targeted of in rebellion against a mismanaged, abusi ...

  • Buddhism Details - 905 words
    Buddhism Details The most devoted followers of the Buddha were organized into a sangha. Its members were identified by their shaved heads and robes made of un-sewn orange cloth. The early Buddhist monks, or bhikkus, wandered from place to place, settling down in communities only during the rainy season when travel was difficult. Theravadan monks and nuns were humble and obtained their food in the form of offering on a daily round of the homes of Lay devotees. Among the traditional functions of the Buddhist monks are the performance of funerals and memorial services in honor of the dead. Major elements of such services include the chanting of scripture and transfer of merit for the benefit of ...

  • Christianity And Politics - 1,167 words
    Christianity And Politics Christianity as a Way of Life The descriptions of the Roman Empire and state authority offered in Christian texts seems to be one that is oppressive. Since the state often punished Christians for disturbing the peace, the Empire is often shown as merciless and callous. However, texts seem to suggest that the Empire did not treat Christians any differently from the other citizens of the state. Christianity in itself was not illegal under Roman law, so Christians were not targeted specifically as a group. Then, the popular portrayal of early Christianity as a mass political movement that the Romans dedicated much resources to thwart seems implausible. Although popular ...

  • Christianity Crisis - 2,306 words
    Christianity Crisis There was a time, not long ago, when the evangelical community had considerable consensus on lifestyle questions and social issues. We generally agreed on what we should eat and drink and how we might spend our weekends. There was little debate over definitions of vulgarity or morality, and questions of fashion were rarely a matter for discussion. In those days, everyone knew how a family should be raised, and aberrations such as divorce and abortion were simply that: problems found only among hose outside the fold. All of that has changed. Today there is considerable disagreement on such questions, and where there is not disagreement, there is often a reluctant silence o ...
