- Acts And Theophilus - 5,304 words
Acts And Theophilus 1. Theophilus Lover of God, a Christian, probably a Roman, to whom Luke dedicated both his Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles. Nothing beyond this is known of him. From the fact that Luke applies to him the title "most excellent", the same title Paul uses in addressing Felix and Festus, it has been concluded that Theophilus was a person of rank, perhaps a Roman officer (Henneke). 2. John the Baptist John was Jesus cousin. He was to prepare a way for the messiah by baptizing people into repentance. He is only mentioned in Acts in passing. He had been murdered by King Herod years before. 3. Jesus He is the suffering servant, the messiah. He is God in flesh. He is the main ...

- Bicycle Thief - 1,592 words
Bicycle Thief "The Bicycle Thief" is a deeply moving neo-realist study of post-War Italy which depicts one mans loss of faith and his struggle to maintain personal dignity in poverty and bureaucratic indifference. Antonio Ricci is a bill-poster whose bicycle, essential for his job, is stolen by a thief. Joined by his son Bruno, Antonio vainly searches for his bike, eventually resorting to the humiliation of theft himself. Throughout this paper, I will attempt to trace the character through "The Bicycle Thief." The film opens with a montage of early morning urban activities ending on a crowd of unemployed laborers clamoring for work. Sitting to the side is Antonio Ricci. Beaten down by despai ...

- Catholic Obligation To The Poor - 434 words
Catholic Obligation To The Poor Christians have an obligation to care for the poor because it is what should come through as their works from their beliefs and their faith. Christians are to follow the examples set by God and Jesus. The Lord and Jesus' teachings of helping the poor can be seen through the scripture in the Gospels. In the gospels Jesus brings salvation to the poor exemplifying his theme of universalism. Jesus gave the message of helping those whom ask of one's help to his disciples in order for them to teach to Christian. This message can be seen through this excerpt from the Gospel, "Give to everyone who begs from you; and if anyone takes away your goods, do not ask for them ...

- Latin American Independence - 1,159 words
Latin American Independence The Independence of Latin America was a process caused by years of injustices, discriminations, and abuse, from the Spanish Crown upon the inhabitants of Latin America.

- Law: An Overview Human Nature Consists Of Three Basic Components These Are To Live, To Propagate And To Dominate If Humanity - 981 words
LAW: an Overview Human nature consists of three basic components. These are to live, to propagate and to dominate. If Humanity was left without any other parameters, this natural state of existence would govern its behavior. Fortunately, there are parameters that exist. These parameters are law. The topic of this paper addresses the type of law that operates in creating potential boundaries for the behavior of states. This law is called the Law of Nations or international law. Patrick Moynihan, a senator from New York, has written a book on this subject called On the Law of Nations. His book argues that states need international law to monitor their actions and to maintain order. He also not ...

- Shirley Jacksons Emotion Laden Short Story The Lottery, Written In The Wake Of The Holocaust, Is A Grim Tale That Vividly Hig - 687 words
Shirley Jackson's emotion laden short story "The Lottery," written in the wake of the Holocaust, is a grim tale that vividly highlights the latent dangers of social conformity. The story was initially published in 1948, a period marked by fear and moral uncertainty; only three years earlier, in the Nuremberg Trials, German soldiers claimed legal and moral innocence to charges of atrocious, hated-induced crimes, including mass genocide, against thousands of Jews in Western Europe. The soldiers defended their actions and disclaimed moral responsibility by testifying that they were "just following orders." In this historical context, "The Lottery" was intended as a stern warning to all people t ...

... 8-159). This is very similar to the fundamental rights of man espoused in the Declaration of Independence, which states that "all men are created equal" because they are "endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights" (Declaration 10-20). Blake also believed that all life was inherently holy; Damon says that his religion "became all-inclusive when he declared that every thing that lives is holy. This was a natural conclusion from the ancient belief that all things were created from the divine substance" (344). This becomes especially important and vital to us in an age where terrorist attacks are becoming increasingly common (witness the bombings at the 1996 Olympics in Atlant ...
