Strengths And Weaknesses Of The Roman Catholic Religion In Modern Society
... not severe. In the Christian religion, even if you have lived a life
of sin, so long as you repent in the end, you will be saved and given
eternal life. This is not so in other religions. Such religions as
Hinduism for instance do not believe this. For everything you do wrong you
will be punished. For every action, there is an equal and opposite
reaction, if not in this life, then the next. Hindu's also believe that
punishing the body is part of the path to salvation. Christianity is
nothing like this. Many Christians live in high©class society.
Christianity is one of the most appealing in that any sins may ...
... it have a wide variety of beliefs and practices. This has given it a
character of social and doctrinal system that extends to every aspect of life.
The Hindus own definition of their community is "those who believe in Vedas."
History/Origin The practices and beliefs of Hinduism cannot be understood
without knowing the background. Hinduism is the worlds oldest religion, it
dates back more than 3,000 years. Hinduism is unique in the fact that it has no
founder. Its origins are lost in a very distant past. In 1500 BC the Indo-Aryan
tribes invaded India and took over the Mahenjo-daro. From the combination of
Paul's Letter To The Galatians
... there are no direct quotes in
scripture that say this. One would wonder why Paul, someone who grew-up
in a "good" Jewish family, would not follow in the footsteps of Jewish
Christian Missionaries, and require Christian converts to become Jews
first. He certainly had to fight to have his belief accepted! In my
opinion, Paul tried to follow the example of the original apostles (who
knew Jesus) by "converting the multitudes." I think Paul understood human
nature better than the other apostles preaching circumcision to the
gentiles. Perhaps he thought that gentiles would accept Christianity more
easily if it wa ...
Christianity: What Does God Mean?
... Spirit and in truth” by defining the nature of that Spirit is God. It would be incorrect to state that “God is a spirit”, because then we would not be distinguishing Him from other beings who are also spirits that we are told about in The Bible. We have to make the distinction that God is a Spirit apart from other beings. So, how do we make the distinction? There is only one place to get that knowledge. Within the God’s Written word. ”For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.” That spirit can be compared with God ...
An Essay For Humanities Courses: The Bible
... story for people, rather than a book
of facts. The best example would be in Mark 10:17-31 (Jesus Counsel to the
Rich) & (Parable of The Camel and the Eye of a Needle). It is doubtful that
these things happened at the same time; however, they are GREY in The Five
Gospels anyway ... and probably didn't happen as Mark describes. This brings us
to Mark's writing style.
Mark seems to "tack-on" sentences to Jesus' teachings to make them more
"Christian." This really changes the meaning more than any other tactic! Who
knows what Mark may have edited-out to accomplish what he wanted to impress upon
his readers? ...
Noah's Ark And The Great Flood
... half the size of the RMS Titanic.
Many species of land animal require highly specialized habitat and food to survive. Koala bears, for instance, only eat leaves of the Eucalyptus tree. Also, no matter what time of year it is, many creatures would be hibernating (it's always winter somewhere on the globe). Many creatures are only found on one continent, indeed some are limited to a small island, forest, and/or mountain.
How could the ark cope with all the specialized requirements of food and environments for millions of creatures? 320 different species of hummingbird alone, for example, have very high metabolic r ...
Prayer In Public Schools
... of prayer from our schools and the decline in morality. Morals must be taught, and they cannot properly be taught without religion.
Another issue is the debate over constitutional rights.
Many people do not support school prayer and feel it is unconstitutional. The constitution neither mandates nor prohibits prayer in schools. It does not say that is unconstitutional, therefore, it is not unconstitutional. One may argue that school prayer is unfair, divisive, or just plain dumb, but it is not unconstitutional, and apparently it will take an amendment to make that clear.
Finally, there is the issue of church a ...
Truth About God
... and yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed
at him, dragged him out of the city and stoned him."
A lot of potshots have been taken at the Church over the years. In spite
of its obvious imperfections, the Church is the means that has been chosen to
carry the message of the Gospel to the world. One wonders why a better system
could not have been devised. Then one realizes that any system that has people
in it is going to be imperfect.

Isaiah 10:1-6 The Hebrews Prophets: Isaiah & Amos
... him against a people who anger me, to seize loot and
snatch, and to trample them down like mud in the streets."
These writings, from the enscriptures of the bible some say philosophical,
inspire mystery, wonder and the relation to how true they are. I have a
monotheistic way of thinking, though the bible is said to be the writings of the
way of life of Moses and the Hebrews, I am puzzled by how certain writings
pertain to society, culture and the life of man and women today.
As I try to decipher this passage in my own words of Isaiah. One is speaking of
the oppression committed by man upon man. It is Jesus a ...
Jesus Christ's Life
... that we could achieve such a
goal. It is impossible for humans to reach that goal. It says in the
Bible "For everyone falls short of the glory of God.". That right there is
enough proof to show th at we are not worthy of his presence. God is of the
Spirit. He is not made of matte r and mind, and he does not possess a
physical nature. Some think that God is t hat of a human. There is no
possible way that this could be, because in John 4:24 J esus speaks "God is
spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.". Even
though Jesus had flesh was of the Spir it he still did have matter. He had
