  • God And Christian Life - 1,212 words
    God And Christian Life A healthy, vibrant, growing and happy Christian life requires a regular routine of communion with God through prayer, study His Word, and in Christian service to mankind. Like eating, sleeping, and exercising, it demands daily attention. And like our bodies, our spiritual life quickly withers and dies without spiritual food. I. Communicating Your Mind with Him The story of Enoch is a great example of a man who spent much time in prayer and communion with God. In fact He kept his mind in tune with God in every respect of his daily livingin thought, in word and in deed. To him prayer was as the breath of the soul; he lived in the very atmosphere of heaven. Because he liv ...

Using Your Mind in Gods Service Like the parable of the talents, what we receive from God must be used in service to benefit others. Talents used will be talents multiplied. Any unused talents will be taken away or we will be as the Dead Sea in which nothing can survive. So it is that the law of service is the law of life. There is nothing in Gods creation that lives unto itself. Everything that God has created ministers to some other life. Every tree, shrub and leaf gives off oxygen so that man and animal could live. The flowers give out ...

    ... ing wrong. What principles do you think they are going to live by? What you say, or what you do? The Death Penalty goes back many, many years. It started out as hangings, shootings, and decapitations, and moved to gas chambers, and electric chairs, and the newest-lethal injections. We may have moved up the scale with the brutality to which the sentence is carried out, but even back then, it was thought to be most immoral. Tolstoy, an eyewitness of a Paris execution in the 1800's, states it well. When I saw how the head was separated from the body and as it dropped noisily into the basket, I understood, not with my reason, but with my whole being that no theories of the rationality of mod ...

  • Dietrich Bonhoeffers Interpretation Of Ot - 1,691 words
    ... e Bonhoeffers sermon on Psalm 58 (July 11, 1937) grapples with the difficulty in understanding the biblical soundness of the desiring of vengeance. Should Christians be permitted to utilize this form of prayer? Is it biblical (Kuske 85)? The person praying this prayer must be sinless. David is permitted to pray such a prayer because Christ, the sinless one, was (as mentioned in the study of King David) in him. Because Christ is sinless, he has the right to condemn injustice. In this Psalm, Christ calls for the annihilation of evil and later enacts this in his death and resurrection. David stands in the shadow of Christ, bearing witness to him (Harrelson 129). Bonhoeffer finds a way to pr ...

A crucifix on the wall was the only unmistakable evidence of the faith of those welcoming them. The staff received only food, board and occasional pocket money. The Catholic Worker became a national movement. By 1936 there were 33 Catholic Worker houses spread across the country. Due to the Depression, plenty of people needed them. The Catholic Worker attitude toward those who were welcomed wasn't always appreciated. These weren't the deserving poor, it was sometimes objected, but drunkards and good-for-nothings.

At any rate, it seems that James is disturbed by the selfish spirit and bitterness of the quarrels than by the rights and wrongs of various viewpoints (Moo 139). James identifies the source of the quarrels as the passions that in your members. 'Passion' is translated the word hedone which means pleasure and is often known as sinful or self-indulgent pleasure (Nystrom 223). James' use of military imagery in the opening words of the verse is continued on when he describes the passions as 'waging war in your members'. He may intend to suggest the conflict of the pas ...

  • Homosexual Marriage And The Catholic Church - 1,286 words
    Homosexual Marriage And The Catholic Church Imagine you were born into a world where being straight was taboo. You were raised by same sex parents, as all of your friends. Fornication of the opposite sex was merely to have children, but a relationship between the two was virtually unheard of. It was believed that same sex parents provided a better home for children. Love between a man and a man (or a woman and a woman) was believed to be the perfect love because it was loving an equal. If one should love the opposite sex it was believed that they secretly wanted to be that sex. Everything you have ever known and been taught was based around same sex relationships.

  • John Calvin - 1,201 words
    ... ilippians 2:13, which says, for it is God who works in you to will and act according to his good purpose. Therefore, Calvin believed that God chooses us, and we dont choose Him. The third point of Calvinism is Limited Atonement, which teaches that there is a fixed, limited number of people who will be saved, and that nobody else will be accepted by God when this number is complete. This is one of Calvins most controversial doctrines in Calvinism. The debate on limited atonement deals with the question of who Christ actually died for. Calvin answered this by saying that Christ died for the believer, or those who He had already elected. This is biblically illustrated in John 10, where Jesu ...

He had such a big influence in the time which he lived from 1509 to 1564. John Calvin devoted almost his whole life to the promoting of Protestantism and made such a difference that his impact is still seen today in Christianity. Calvin was born in France and was the second son in his family of five brothers. He grew and then decided to go to the famous University of Paris to study to be a priest. His father then had a conflict with the bishop who employed him so he then turned to the study of law. While he was studying i ...

  • Puritan Ideology - 1,568 words
    Puritan Ideology Puritans have had some bad press throughout the years. Often they have been ridiculed by Christians and seculars alike for their seemingly legalism and hypocritical attitude, but they also had some of the most interesting beliefs of the early religious groups. "They sought an intellectual, moral, and spiritual "clean-up" of institutionalized Christianity. Their standard of purity was the Bible. The most comprehensive, but concise articulation of their ideology is the Westminster Confession of Faith" (Gatis 1). They had goals to achieve. They wanted to frame their whole lifestyle on the word of God. They also wanted to assert every bit of their ideology by the Bible. Puritans ...

  • Robert Browning - 1,144 words
    ... " God! Thou art mind!". He comes to the realization that through God, everything exists, and also through God, the poetic talent he possesses was given. He reveals that, "if all poets, god ever meant should save the world, and therefore lent great gifts to, but who, proud, refused to do his work." God is said to have "lent" great gifts to those talented; it is a connection between God and the world. By Paracelsus, Browning's reverence to Shelley is non existent. The next step in Browning's spiritual journey occurs about ten years later when he begins to develop a dislike for the church. Around 1845, Browning found himself focusing his anger on the church as an institution, especially the ...

  • Symbolism In Young Goodman Brown - 1,739 words
    Symbolism In Young Goodman Brown Nathaniel Hawthorne's work is typically fraught with symbolism, much of it deriving from his Puritan ancestry; a great-great uncle was actually a judge in the Salem witchcraft trials (Roth 76). Not surprisingly, Hawthorne was obsessed with the twin themes of sin and guilt. Author John Roth notes that A number of recurring thematic patterns and character types appear in Hawthorne's novels and tales. These repetitions show Hawthorne's emphasis on the effects of events on the human heart rather than the events themselves (76). Because he is speaking of what we later would come to call the unconscious, Hawthorne extensively employed the use of symbolism, which by ...

Perhaps the separation of the two is not necessary and was not complete at this point in time. Not only was magic a pagan tradition that persisted throughout the Middle Ages..another tradition, changing at the time, reflected the transition from worshipping the unseen forces in the world as many gods, to one, omnipotent God. Although the people were Christians, they took the separation of spiritual powers far beyond the creation the Trinity. The specific powers or emphasis given to each saint carries on even into today's Catholic tradition. The medieval period may have had som ...
