Jesus And Christology - 1,306 words
Theologians and philosophers have been trying to question who Jesus is for hundreds of year now. This time in the form of what is called the contemporary study of Christology. The thrust of Christology is somewhat dependent upon which theologian one reads. Hans Kung calls his approach Christology from below. Others simply focus on the crucifixion and the resurrection of Christ (Cunningham); others are exploring His life and work on earth (Imbelli). Some deny the fact that Jesus is God (Kung), others express strongly that yes, Jesus is part of the Triune and is God (Cunningham and Imbelli). "Christology" literally means the study of Christ. Christianity is founded on the belief that Jesus wal ...

... man. This did not occur suddenly. The Romans conquered the Greeks and adopted much of the Greek mythology adding their own embellishments to the traditions. History reveals that the Romans also abandoned these adopted traditions for Christianity. Christianity takes the Hebrew tradition and adds a second chapter so to speak. The Hebrews do not accept this Christian theology but both share the same original traditions. The Hebrew God passed down to man standards for righteous living. The Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20 are the first written standards of living righteous passed from God to man. The remainder of the book of Exodus reveals numerous other standards that God required from m ...

The compromise protected homosexuals in uniform as long as they didnt flaunt their sexual orientation. In the eighties and nineties, gays have mobilized to seek civil rights protections from the National Government. In the United States, questions of basic civil rights and liberties are often considered first by the President and then by Congress. They are usually thought to respond to the opinions and prejudices of the public because they have to defend their policies to voters durin ...

One of the stories we are most familiar with in our culture, the story of Noahs Ark, is a well known segment of the old testament, and an interesting story of how God punished the world for how corrupt it had become. God accomplished this reportedly by flooding the world, and annihilating all the creatures upon it, save for Noah and his family and a pair of each type of creature on the earth .

Proof Of Evolution - 1,361 words
... come, by this time, to see that the Old Testament from its manifestly false history of the world, with the tower of Babel, the rainbow at sign, ect., ect., and from its attributing to God the feelings of a revengeful tyrant, was no more to be trusted than the sacred books of the Hindoos, or the beliefs of any barbarian. The question then continually rose before my mind and would not be banished, is it credible that if God were now to make a revelation to the Hindoos, would he permit it to be connected with the belief in Vishnu, Siva, &c, as Christianity is connected to the Old Testament. This appeared to me utterly incredible. By further reflecting that the clearest evidence would be r ...

You Are Asked To Witness is a very well written and laid out piece of collaborative literature. The style is free flowing and it has excellent continuity even though it was written by multiple authors.

It goes through St:lō life, history, and culture in a very easy to read and straight forward manner. It also examines the consequences of the Xweltem influence on St:lo culture in a non-emotional approach. This made me feel as thought the authors were being honest and sincere in there attempt to help me understand what their history has actually been like, not what I have bee ...

An Essay On Three Rebellious Figuresa Comparative Study - 1,161 words
An Essay on Three Rebellious Figures -------Satan in Paradise Lost, The Monkey King and Song Jiang. Paradise Lost, the greatest epic in English literature history, was composed by John Milton in the year 1665, after seven years labor in the darkness. With great difficulty he found a publisher. Its success was immediate, though, like all his works, it met with venomous criticism. Milton was persecuted by the defenders of the throne after the Restoration because he was a faithful advocator of the Cromwell Government. Hardness of life brought him blindness. But this hard period was the most fruitful time in his literary life. Paradise Lost, the story taken from the Holy Bible, was written in th ...

"We shall be as a City upon a Hill, the eyes of all people are upon us," the Puritan John Winthrop wrote. The Puritans departed for the New World due to their beliefs that the Church of England was hopelessly corrupt and no longer stood for their way of life. They felt that they could create an ideal Christian society in a New World, which would be a model for others to follow. Some even compared themselves to the Hebrews and held the notion that they were founding the New Israel. (Brow) As religious laws had governed the people of Israel, so did the church regulate New England society. The Puritans had some of the most interesting beliefs of the early religious groups. Founded by the belief ...

Baptist Words Works And Worship - 1,755 words
The Baptists: Words, Works, and Worship The branch of Christianity known as The Baptists was born out of the Radical Reformation, which begun during the 16th century. The Reformation occurred in response to discontent and disagreement within the Christian Church. Prior to the Reformation in Europe, communities of Anabaptists (re-baptizers) had begun to form. The Anabaptists differed in their perspectives widely, but were united in their rejection of infant baptism. The forerunners of present day Baptists were the Anabaptists of the Reformation Period. Some Anabaptist congregations were settled in Holland in the early 17th century when groups of Puritan Independents, or Congregationalists, fl ...

The Pagan Beowulf - 1,552 words
Scholars have argued about the religious stance of the epic poem Beowulf for centuries. Although the man who put the poem down on paper, known as the Beowulf poet, was a devout Christian, the actual poem itself is pagan. There are many clues in the epic that lead us to this conclusion such as the numerous references to pagan symbols, namely the symbol of fate. Also, the central idea of revenge in the poem opposes the ideas of Christianity. The poem also contains many breaches of the Ten Commandments, which prove that the story is not Christian. However, the biggest clue to the paganism of Beowulf is the scene that contains the burial of Beowulf and the building and idolization of the tower, ...
