Christians Should Not Try to Make Others Accept their Decisions - I agree that Christians believe that life is up to them as God gave us a conscience and free will. The church teaches that; ‘… all people can be forgiven and given a free start.’ This is a perfect example what Christians, even if they make wrong decisions can be forgiven such as their beliefs about life. Also; ‘… God has mapped out our lives even before conception.’ God therefore if he has mapped out our lives he will know what we believe about life. Many Christians believe that life is a gift and it has dignity....   [tags: Theology] 271 words

Analysis of Language in "The Canonization" by John Donne - In The Canonization by John Donne, the speaker uses spiritual expressions, such as mysterious (27), hymn (35), canonized (36), reverend (37), and hermitage (38). All of these words share a religious connotation. With using these words when talking about love the speaker implies that love is similar to a love with God, and that love is spiritual. Mysterious is a religious truth that one cannot fully understand, and only known by revelation. If we apply this definition to love we can interpret it as though love is something unknown, unless you have ever been in love to experience it personally....   [tags: Poetry Analysis] 276 words

Christianity and Its Beliefs - "What Christians believe about life is up to them. They should not try to make others accept their position." I agree with the first part of this statement because people should be able to believe in what they want to believe in, not what other people tell them to believe in. I also think that Christians should not have to justify their beliefs to get people to accept their positions unless they want to. However with different Christian denominations all believing in the sanctity of life having different views on abortion and euthanasia, it is harder for other people to understand, this may be why some people think, "they should not try to make others accept their position" for example on the issue of abortion, the Quakers believe that everybody has the right to choose what they do because they are guided by the Holy Spirit and any choice they make will be influenced by the Holy Spirit....   [tags: Bible Study] 287 words

Anne Bradstreet's Poem, To My Dear and Loving Husband - Anne Bradstreet Anne Bradstreet lived in a time when devotion in a wife to her husband was a social law. This poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband,” is a loving tribute from Bradstreet to her husband. Certainly, in the early American, Puritan colonies, this work would have been seen as a wife’s duty as well as a lovely gesture. Today, however, it might well be seen as the babblings of a dependant wife. This was my reaction to the poem when I first read it. The attitudes of our country have changed drastically since the mid-1600s and devotion of a wife to her husband is now often seen as a sign of weakness....   [tags: Anne Bradstreet] 295 words

Roosevelt's Upbringing, Background and Character and Those Effects on his Presidency - Roosevelt's Upbringing, Background and Character and Those Effects on his Presidency On one hand you could argue that Roosevelt’s upbringing, background and character did make it easy for him to understand the life of ordinary Americans and in some ways it did not. For instance Roosevelt went to Harvard university to study law and history, this shows that he didn’t understand the life of ordinary Americans because only the very elite and rich go to this type of university.

MBA Admissions Essay - My Most Significant Leadership Role - MBA Admissions Essays - My Most Significant Leadership Role During the last three years I have devoted a significant amount of time and energy to the betterment of young entrepreneurs, who in this country are mistreated, stripped of opportunities, and looked down upon. In my quest to start my own business, I faced many obstacles that I later found to plague all entrepreneurs in my country. Established family heads discourage their younger members from starting separate businesses; they would rather their younger members join them in the so called "safe business." Moreover, companies and government organizations will not award contracts to young people since older people earn respect for their age rather than their ideas in this traditional sub-continental culture....   [tags: MBA College Admissions Essays] 346 words

Gun Control in America - Gun Control in America In my opinion guns are a vital part of the American way of life. People who lived and died by the gun developed America. If Americans weren't armed, what would have happened when the British came to take control. The people who fought for the independence of America weren't psychotic violent people, they were just average people who farmed, hunted, and raised kids. This event in history is a perfect example of the vital role that guns play in society. Many of the people attempting to control guns today are under the impression that guns are the roots of all that is evil when in fact, in responsible hands, they are just the opposite....   [tags: Second Amendment The Right To Bear Arms] 346 words

This issue is important to me because history has shown that restricting abortions, not only undermines women, but can also be very dangerous. I believe that the government should not be able to control what a woman does with her body....   [tags: Argumentative] 352 words

Women of the Epics - Women of the Epics In Homer's epics women were very respected by journey and warrior men. The women were looked upon as beautiful, nurturing human beings. The mortal women in Homer's "Iliad" were mostly known for being faithful wives and very giving mothers. These women care for their children, such as Odysseus's mother did, when he was in great need of confidence and reassurance. After the death of Odysseus's mother, she returned as a shade from the underworld to tell Odysseus, "Your wife weeps for your return as she lives in your house with a loyal heart, and your son has kept your kingdom whole."(90) This gave Odysseus the confidence in his heart to continue on home to Ithaca, to reunite with his dear wife, Penelope....   [tags: Papers] 354 words
