Poem - One True Love - Poetry: The Sky is Filled With Laughter The sky is filled with laughter Like a little kid at a fair With streaks of blue and white It paints a canvas of happiness The day it all turned gray And the rain came out to play The sun was hidden for many days But once again the sky turned blue And all the little children came out To play, with the sky so blue With its pretty picture of laughter Haiku I went on a walk And saw all that I can see From flowers to trees The grass was bright green And the flowers were bright yellow Everything was calm The green grass grows all… Around all around and the… Green grass grows all day....   [tags: Poetry Poems] 125 words

College Admissions Essays: Enrich the Mind and Spirit - Enrich the Mind and Spirit The college education that I am seeking goes beyond credentials in that it must first and foremost enrich my mind and spirit, and support my belief in continuous learning.

Can a Believer be Demon Possessed? - The best place to find the answer to that question was in the Bible. The answer is no. Everyday believers desire to sin. When that happens, who is to blame. Usually ?Satan made me do it. is the typical excuse. Wrong. Our desire to sin comes from our lusts (James 1:13,14), the flesh (Galatians 5:19-21) and evil hearts (Mark 7:21,22). Satan knows these weaknesses and uses them to his advantage. If Satan cannot cause us to sin, he certainly cannot indwell in us. When we are told to put on the whole armour of God, it is meant to protect us from the outside evils not from evil that is ?possessing....   [tags: Theology] 271 words

The Case Against Moral Relativism - "Who's to judge who's right or wrong?" In the case against moral relativism Pojman provides an analysis of Relativism. His analysis includes an interpretation of Relativism that states the following ideas: Actions vary from society to society, individuals behavior depends on the society they belong to, and there are no standards of living that apply to all human kind. An example that demonstrates these ideas is people around the world eat beef (cows) and in India, cows are not to be eaten.

Babies Should be Baptised - The reasons against infant baptism. In the early days of the Church only adults were baptised. Jesus himself was baptised as an adult. Jesus and his disciples taught the gospel to adults and asked them to celebrate a new life through baptism. Jesus taught adults about the word of the Lord, and only played with children. Some people think that baptism is a very important sacrament, which initiates people into the Kingdom of God, and if a person is to be baptised they should be well prepared, and have total commitment, understanding and know the responsibilities that they will take on by joining the Christian Community....   [tags: Bible Study] 282 words

The Cause of Juvenile Delinquency - There is no doubt that various books and experts can give us many theories as to the causes of juvenile delinquency, including one's economic background, substance abuse, peer groups, repeated exposure to violence through the family circit, increased availability of firearms and media violence, however, I feel that the number one cause of juvenile delinquency is the breakdown of families, including lack of parental control over children.

God is perfect because he created perfection. This leaves only two options; 1. Everything is perfect because God created it. 2. Every thing is imperfect in comparison to God. Man is far from perfect, and is in fact the most imperfect being in Gods kingdom.
