The Father The Son And The Holy Spirit - 851 words
The last line of the Lords prayer is, In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is a key line in the Christian religion. The intention of this is reminding one of where we came from and to thank Jesus Christ for giving his life to remove humanities sin. There are many key points in the Bible that tells us how we came to be, reminding us everyday to be thankful for what God has done for us. The Bible is one thing that held in high esteem with many people with stories of earths origin, centered in their beliefs in creationism. The Theory of creationism has no true time for when it founded but has been part of many peoples lives lifes from the very beginning. The Bible is the ...

Anne Hutchinson - 584 words
Anne Hutchinson challenged the traditional role of women in the Puritan society through her opposing religious beliefs. Anne Hutchinson was most likely not the first woman to have her own thoughts. She was simply the first to act on them. Anne Hutchinson was born on or about July17, 1591 in Alford, Licolnshire, England. She was the daughter of Reverend Francis Marbury. Rev. Marbury spoke out that many of the ordained ministers in the Church of England were unfit to guide people's souls. For this act of defiance, he was put in jail for one year. Anne read many of her father's books on theology and religion. Much of Anne's independence and willingness to speak out was due to her father's examp ...

Calvinism, John Calvin - 597 words
Since John Calvin first introduced the belief of election, it has caused debate among theologians in many Protestant churches. John Calvins beliefs consisted of five general themes. The first of the is the most important concept of understanding the beliefs of grace. Due to the fall, man, in his spiritually dead state, is unable of himself to savingly believe the Gospel. The sinner is totally dead, and cannot natural turn to the things of God, not seek Him. Man's is deceitful and desperately corrupt. Man does not have free will; it is in complete bondage to his evil and sinful nature; therefore, he will not--better yet, he cannot--choose good over evil in the spiritual realm. Due to this sta ...

Tattoos - 963 words
Tattooing has been around much longer than most people think. Most people envision natives, with tribal tattoos, or sleazy parlors on the wrong side of the tracks filled with bikers and sailors, but that's not even close to where it started. Scientists found a man, "the ice man", said to be the oldest man ever found intact that dated to the prehistoric era, and he had tattoos. And there were also the Egyptians who were masterful tattooists. Usually only the upper class, priests and priestesses had tattoos. The women wore tattoos on their bellies to ensure fertility, and many of the priestesses were heavily tattooed, especially on the face. In the years of the Roman Empire tattooing was almos ...

Implications Of Christian Ideology In Goethes Faust - 869 words
In Faust, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe builds a dramatic poem around the basis of human strengths and weaknesses, two traits exemplified by Goethe through his main character, Johann Faust. Throughout his life, Faust becomes knowledgeable in math, science, and the Holy Scripture, yet desires to find happiness as a result of his persistent struggle for power. Faust seeks not power through knowledge, but power resultant from knowledge achieved through transcendence. Infinitely, it is this desire that is the downfall of Faust; he sacrifices his beliefs and morals to his pursuit of ultimate knowledge, and, in doing so, he becomes detached from reality. Through his ignorance of the surrounding human ...

Inside The Mind Of Death - 1,091 words
Since the dawn of time, death has been one of the greatest mysteries known to humankind. It has been anticipated, mourned, feared, welcomed, loathed, induced, and, through the poetry of Emily Dickinson, death has almost been explained. Dickinsons death-related poetic compositions reflect a metamorphosis of style and thought that distinguish her earlier work from that of her two later periods, and provide a means of understanding the mindset of the quasi-necrophobic poet, as well as an insight to the nature of death. Dickinsons dynamic utilization of personification, metaphor, and euphemism is a key element in fully comprehending both her maturing poetic influences on the human perception of ...

Review On The Prince Of Egypt - 1,620 words
On Friday, November 26, 1999, I sat down and viewed the entire movie The Prince of Egypt. This movie was about Moses and some of his life journeys. In this movie you see Mosess transition from living as the Prince of Egypt to being Gods deliverer and going against the Pharaoh to free the Hebrews out of Egypts slavery. This movie was excellent in the way it portrayed Mosess journeys and helped the viewer get a better understanding of all of the emotions that were taking place at this time. In the beginning of the story Moses was a newborn baby of a Hebrew family. At the time the Pharaoh had ordered that any son born into a Hebrew family must be thrown in the river as a means of execution. Mos ...

The Passion Of Saints Perpetua And Felicity - 504 words
The document, The Passion of Saints Perpetua and Felicity, shows just how mighty and fearless the faith of the martyrs were in Rome around 203 A.D. in which our story takes place. During the rule of Diocletian, Christianity was not the religion of popular belief. Many of Romans practiced polytheism. As a result, numerous Christian believers were persecuted for their divine faith in God. Surprisingly, the Christian martyrs did not care that they were sentenced to death. They believed that by dying for what they believe, it would only bring them closer to God and the Gates of Heaven. The document states, For this cause have we devoted our lives, that we might do no such thing as this; this we ...

Catholicism Vs Fundamentalism - 1,010 words
Conversations about the differences and similarities between Fundamentalist and Catholic beliefs usually end up being more like heated debates than conversations. A major difference between the Catholic and the Fundamentalist is how they see the Bible. The source of the Fundamentalists' faith is the Bible. But what do the Fundamentalists believe about the Bible? This is the question I am trying to answer for myself. I will present my understanding of the Fundamentalists' view of the Bible along with my Catholic view of the Bible. My mission is not to offend, but to open a dialogue between the two views.

Addiction And Grace - 1,467 words
I think Dr. Gerald may have done a marvelous job as to the writing and format of his book Addiction and Grace. As a psychiatrist and teacher with years of experience, I totally agree with his statement that all human beings have an inborn desire of God, whether one is consciously religious or not. Some people repress this desire by intentionally or inadvertently hiding it among the many other interest of life. I have noticed frequently in my line of work as working closely with people in the health field that many individuals whether they are believers of non-believers of God, often choose to cry out in the last and most crucial moments of pain and despair "Oh God pleas help me!" As he bring ...

Romans - 1,285 words
Justification, Peace, Grace and Access In Romans, Paul talks about many different topics and problems that the Jews face during 57 to 58 AD. He speaks of the need for righteousness, condemnation and sin in Ch 1:18-3:20. Righteousness is imputed, and justification and sin is explained in Ch 3:21-5:21. But there is one major area that this paper is going to talk about and try to explain in as good of detail as possible. Justification, Faith, Peace, Access, and Grace in God in Romans 5:1-5. How does justification show our right standing with God? How does faith play a part in our justification? Do we have peace with God or receive it? Does the faith we have give us access to God and His kingdom ...

For strife with earth, and hell begins; They hate the soul that hates his sins. They may assault, they may distress; It is by the same Christ Jesus that we have gained access to grace through faith. The Bible says that God has given every man a measure of faith (Romans 12:3), but that measure of faith does not mean that all men have their eyes and hears open to receive Christ as Lord of their lives. Faith believes in the God who has done this, and who-exercising His power in love and in righteousness-has raised from the dead the One who bore my sins, having ...

Luther And Erasmus - 1,356 words
The nature of individuals role in salvation from the point of view of Luther and Erasmus Erasmus was one of the most intelligent people of his century. In his time, he was the leader of all scholars in Europe from Germany to Italy and Spain and from England to Hungary as well. He stands above the other humanists and forerunners of the reformation. His great mission was to bring back the spirit of classical and Christian. The first part of his life, specifically until 1524, as being "progressive and reformatory;" the second, until his death in 1536 was, "conservative and reactionary". While visiting fellow humanist Thomas More in 1509, Erasmus composed In Praise of Folly, his most famous and ...

Amazing Grace: The Journey of an Unforgettable Hymn How does a hymn become so universal? Where does it gain its ability to be transformed into almost every style of music known to man? The hymn Amazing Grace is such a hymn. Its existence has been marked by evolutions upon evolution in its use, but has always remained the same in its meaning and effect. To trace the path of this hymns existence, one must begin in England. From there it has blossomed and spread out from the English way of life and grew up in the United States. From early American times to the present the hymn has become something extraordinary. What it has become is one of the most universal traditions that may be sung among m ...
