Christian Attitudes To Treatments that Help Couples Who Are Infertile - Christian Attitudes To Treatments that Help Couples Who Are Infertile Many Christians believe that a child is a gift from God and many Christians will accept the different treatments such as IVF as long as only the infertile couple is involved and not a third party, so for IVF, just the woman’s’ egg and the man’s sperm. AIH (artificial insemination by husband), maybe the preferred fertility treatment for Christians because it safeguards the sanctity of marriage. Christians believe that God is the creator not man/animals were given for mans benefit, but not to be abused/created and sustains all life/man made in his image/ each soul is unique and Christ died for the sake of humanity....   [tags: Papers] 497 words

Personal Narrative: My Personal Christian Philosophy - Humans from my own point of view are God's creation, because the bible makes me understand that humans were created in God's image, and during the creation of man, God blew the breath of life into man to make him come alive. I assume the reason humans are so unique is that they were created like God. The reason why humans are the best of all creation is that they can think, invent new things, and have dominion of all other creatures on earth. Humans are the only living creation that is conscious of their own existence, because they have advanced knowledge and skills to do things, for example, humans can clothe themselves, cook their foods, and even invent numerous technologies....   [tags: essays research papers] 893 words

A Comparison of Christian Influence on Beowulf and The Saga of King Hrolf Kraki - Christian Influence on Beowulf and The Saga of King Hrolf Kraki        In Beowulf the Christian influence is revealed through approximately 70 passages in which the form of expression or the thought suggests Christian usage or doctrine (Blackburn 3); The Saga of King Hrolf Kraki is in its own way infused with Christian values even though it preserves remnants of the cult of Odin.   The Christian element seems to be too deeply interwoven in the text of Beowulf for us to suppose that it is due to additions made by scribes at a time when the poem had come to be written down....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

A Book Review of "Maps of Time: An Introduction to Big History" by David Christian - Maps of Time: An Introduction to Big History by historian David Christian explores a “modern creation myth” (2). Christian takes his readers from the big bang to modern day in a technical and historical narrative. He believes that big history is a new, yet important, area of history ignored by historians. Christian tells us big history is “a coherent story about the past on many different scales, beginning, literally, with the origins of the universe and ending in the present day” (2). The strength in Christian’s argument is in that he carefully takes his readers through each stage in history, much like a textbook, using charts, graphs, pictures, and the language for each area, like astronomy or biology....   [tags: Maps of Time, Big History, historians, David Chris] 1009 words

In a similar vein, the greater good argument answers the problem of evil by suggesting the presence of evil allows a higher level of good, which would be otherwise impossible without the existence of suffering....   [tags: religion, theology, Philosophy of Religion] 979 words

A Comparison of Nihilistic and Christian Archetypes in Beowulf and John Gardner's Grendel - Grendel, Beowulf and the Relationship Between Nihilistic and Christian Archetypes The Wisdom god, Woden, went out to the king of trolls…and demanded to know how order might triumph over chaos. “Give me your left eye,” said the king of trolls, “and I’ll tell you.” Without hesitation, Woden gave up his left eye. “Now tell me.” The troll said, “The secret is, Watch with both eyes!” Woden’s left eye was the last sure hope of gods and men in their kingdom of light surrounded by darkness. All we have left is Thor’s hammer, which represents not brute force but art, or, counting both hammerheads, art and criticism… The philosophies expressed in the Beowulf epic complement the exploration of existentialism throughout the modern work, Grendel, by John Gardner....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Christian Slave Owner's Justification of Slavery in Harriet Jacob's "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl" Contrasted with the Bible's Views on Slave - Despite the fact that Christianity teaches the values of respect, goodwill and generosity, etc., Christian slave holders seem to exclude themselves from these standards, which is indubitably hypocritical. African American slavery is reducing a human being to the condition of property, the same as other goods, wares, merchandise and chattels. The treatment of slaves was customarily lamentable because slave masters had their profit in mind rather than the well-being of their slaves. Due to the way that slavery was practiced in the South, it and Christianity cannot coexist....   [tags: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, slavery] 735 words

Review of Herbert Schlossberg's Book, Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture - ... Envy is often the cause of what he calls resentiment (a term originating with Nietzsche) – a festering mental condition that wishes injury to someone whose possessions or qualities are envied. Where a Christian ethic once encouraged an equality of opportunity, which necessarily produces unequal results, resentiment desires an equality of results. So the gap between the rich and the poor is seen as an evil in itself, and poverty is redefined from the lack of food or other necessities to the lack of an affluent lifestyle....   [tags: Idols for Destruction]

The Woman’s Christian Temperance Union and the Creation of a Politicized Female Reform Culture, 1880-1884. - The Woman’s Christian Temperance Union and the Creation of a Politicized Female Reform Culture In 1879, a group of evangelical churchwomen, all members of the Illinois Woman’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU), presented to their state legislature a massive petition asking that Illinois women be granted the right to vote. The architect of this ambitious petition campaign, which resulted in 180,000 signatures of support, was Frances Willard, then president of the Illinois WCTU. In using her position as a prominent WCTU leader to agitate for enfranchisement of women, Willard went against the express commands of the National WCTU and its president, Annie Wittenmeyer, who had made clear only one year earlier that the WCTU would not involve itself in any way with the suffrage movement....   [tags: Suffrage History Historical Essays] 5065 words

Why did John Locke believe it was irrational to attempt to force someone to become a Christian against their will? - ... Waldron stated that whilst it is impossible through direct means, such as torture, to force someone to change their religious beliefs it is possible to subtly push them in a different direction (Waldron, in Horton and Mendus (1991)). One way of doing this would be by restricting their access to certain materials or by pushing certain courses of action by making them more convenient, economical, or accessible. For example a government may restrict access to a new book because it would undermine the confidence in a particular religion or it may offer favourable conditions to one religion such as cheaper land to build places of worship or laws protecting religious practices....   [tags: Religion]
