- Looking Out For The State Of The Public's Satisfaction In The - 1,396 words
Looking out for the state of the public's satisfaction in the scheme of capital sentencing does not constitute serving justice. Today's system of capital punishment is frought with inequalities and injustices. The commonly offered arguments for the death penalty are filled with holes. "It was a deterrent. It removed killers. It was the ultimate punishment. It is biblical. It satisfied the public's need for retribution. It relieved the anguish of the victim's family."(Grisham 120) Realistically, imposing the death penalty is expensive and time consuming. Retroactively, it has yet to be proven as a deterrent. Morally, it is a continuation of the cycle of violence and "...degrades all who are i ...

Religions Christianity was traditionally understood to be founded by Jesus of Nazareth. Paul of Tarsus, after his conversion on the road to Damascus, worked tirelessly to establish Christianity among both Jews and God-fearing Gentiles of the Diaspora. Clues in the New Testament indicate that there was a significant rift between Paul and the Jewish leadership early in the history of the Church. It is primarily Paul's writings which has most influenced the Church today. Christians span the globe and are present on all the inhabited continents and in most of the world's societies.

- Roots Of Our Faith - 738 words
Roots of Our Faith As Christians, why do we need the Old Testament when we have the New Testament? This is a question often asked in modern day Christianity. This is also the question which seems to provoke the writing of The Old Testament Roots of Our Faith, by Paul and Elizabeth Achtemeier. The Achtemeiers point out in their book that in modern day thinking we view God as a loving father (pg. 1-2), rather than the God of the Old Testament who seems to act in jealousy over his own power with the destruction of everything. So why then do we read the Old Testament? The final reason is "We cant understand the nature of Christians unless we understand Israel."(pg.5) according to the Achtemeiers ...

- School Choice: Public Education Vs Home School - 1,504 words
School Choice: Public Education vs. Home School When Americans think of education, they almost automatically think of public education. Through the years it is slowly changing. Many parents today are deciding to home school their children. Although most people think that a public education is better, most statistics and facts tend to show that home schooling is beneficial in more ways. It is estimated that parents are now teaching over two million children at home, rather than in public or even private schools. Education in our public schools has been on the down slope for over twenty years now. Public schools have lost all values and biblical morality. This was what our country was founded ...

Searching For God In All The New Places Searching For God In All The New Places USA Today, May 27, 1999 As the years pass by, the focus on religion in the U.S. is becoming more prominent, but the focus is switching from the traditional Christianity and Catholic roots, to the more varied faiths of the world, especially the Eastern faiths. The records show that religions of the world grow through thousands of years before they become well-traveled amongst the worlds people, and most go through times of chaos before the religion is even accepted, as seen in the 30 years after the death of Jesus Christ, where his followers were being killed for practicing their new faith. It took almost 300 year ...

... year, but fled on bond. (Johnson 20) Those people that argue prisons are not harsh enough, do not consider how much some people suffer. Brown is hurt from asthma and high blood pressure. He also is missing a kidney after being a victim of a mugging twenty years ago and he is also sightless in one eye. His family is worried that the seventy-five year old man will die in prison. (Johnson 20) Corrections cost the United States twenty-five billion dollars a year, which gives a need for inmates to earn wages and help pay for the cost of holding them. The problem is that this may be threatening the jobs of average citizens. (Cohen 76) Even though unemployment is extremely low at this time, pe ...
