Refutation To A Bias Suggestion
... void their validity. Although we may not share the same
nationality with the authors of the Bible, we do share common beliefs and faiths.
Taken from a different perspective, non-Christians do not share the same
beliefs, obviously, or they would not make such statements.
Another question one may ask themselves is exactly how different are the
authors of the Biblical texts from ourselves. Is it their lifestyle or career
that makes them so exotic in relation to us? Is it just because they spoke
another language? They are children of God, just as we are. Science today is
still discovering new evidence that proves ...
Overview And Analysis Of The Crusades
... his followers outside the French city of Clermont-Ferrand. He
preached to these people and told them that action needed to be taken. In
response, the people cheered and planned their attack. Urban II brought together
all of the bishops and urged them to talk to their friends and fellow villagers
and to encourage them to participate in the crusades. Small groups started to
form and each group would be self- directing. All the groups planned their own
ways to the Constantinople, where they would meet and regroup. They would attack
the Turkish forces in Constantinople and hope to regain control of the city.

The second article I found concerning Wicca emphasizes Jan Phillips that
despite peoples personal preferences we are all human beings. The article Do
You Believe In Magic tells the plight of two practicing witches, the Riley's,
who chose to open a pagan shop in a predominantly Christian town. Due to
differences in religious views, their land lord refused to renew their lease.
Many townspeople, including several town ministers, publicly voiced their
objections to the couples business venture. The Riley's gathered fellow Pagans
from surrounding areas and ...
... the other five "Catholic" sacraments as
special graces. Both the PRESBYTERIAN and REFORMED churches strictly
accept Baptism and Holy Communion as the only sacraments. METHODISTS,
NAZARENES, WESLEYANS, and ADVENTISTS, and members of the CHURCH OF CHRIST,
FULL GOSPEL CHURCH, ASSEMBLY OF GOD, and UNITED PENTECOSTAL CHURCH also
accept only Baptism and Holy Communion, but refer to them as ordinances,
not sacraments. BAPTISTS also believe in these two ordinances, and they
very strongly resist the use of the term "sacrament."
Though all the Christian denominations practice Baptism, they
disagree on when they should do s ...

What scares me so bad is the fact that many people hide in this world of
god. God is what created us what made us it is what we must ultitmley answer to.
We answer as not flesh and blood but as a spirit we choose long before our
mortal body goes where we go. We leave behind our bodys and enter into a realm
to which we cannot comphrend. Our minds well never allow us to comprhend
immortality but our souls can that is faith.
This faith belongs to no clan of self righteous humn being that think
that becuse there rules that they follow our better then another. Se the ...
Amen: Does Prayer Play An Important Role In Our Lives Today?
... created equal, that they are endowed by God with certain
unalienable rights. . .” Certainly, it talks about God, creations, God-given
moral rights, the providence of God, and the final Day of Judgment-all of which
are religious teachings. And school prayer has been an important part of our
religious experience from the very beginning.
Our very First Amendment didn't separate God and government but actually
encouraged religion. It reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting the
establishment of religion, nor prohibit the free exercise thereof,” (Encarta
96). The first part simply says that the federal governm ...
Religion In School?
... people in an overwhelming manner. If a
Christian decides to wear Christian apparel or accessories, they should not
be treated any different. They have just as much a right to pray before
school, or at lunch to show their individuality, as those around them might
through clothing, attitude, and word of mouth.
As long as they follow the school codes as expected, they should
be treated just as their non-Christian equal. No place in the constitution
does it say Christians should be treated different. In fact the first
amendment (passed September 25, 1789 and ratified December 15, 1791)

Although I will stick with traditional ideas raised by Buddhism, one
detail in the story of Siddartha Guatama must be addressed in order for it to be
relevant to the main question being asked: What obstacles would Siddartha
Guatama face had he been born in modern day North America. Primarily, it must
be recognized that rather than being born into the Hindu religion (which in
itself is mystical), Siddartha would have most likely been born into a Christian
family. This in ...
... Gotama (known as Buddha) wrote a religious doctrine that focused on being spiritual with one self as opposed to worshipping a god. Buddha meaning "one who is awake" is a scholar who preached to all of his followers first starting in Northern India. In his teachings Buddha praised mediation and reflection in order to see enlightenment in kindness and well being. To him this was a natural law that everybody should want to follow in his or her path through life. Buddha wanted to be known as someone who taught others kindness and wellness, he never wanted to be a god like others did in different religions. He ...

This German theologian believed that communica¬ tion has an important role in myth’s throughout the bible. I believe that all mythological systems that recur in stories, oc¬ cur in many different versions. He stated that “man is created in Genesis, and then he created all over again. And, as if two first men were not enough, we also have Noah in chapter eight.” A quote from the bible that states “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord.” The German Theologian says that “God against the ...
