...dled different situations. As stated earlier, Hebrews 2:18 explains he suffered, so He could help us during our suffering. Jesus is the light for my path, and my goal is to follow His guidance, so I stay on the path God has planned for me.
By looking at God, humanity, Jesus, His restoration, the Christian faith, and what God has done in my life, God works to show others what he has done for them and the hope he provides for their future. I decided to accept the gift, and it has given me a purpose for my life. The unknown and uncertainty of the future can scare people, but there is fulfillment in Christ. He provides a hope to know that no matter what we go through there is a future with Him if we accept it. Jeremiah 29:11 says, ‘“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”’

- Prime reality is God. He is all knowing and is with each of us at all times. Some do not believe this is possible, but believers know this to be the truth. As Christians, we live by God’s word as written in the Bible and if we truly believe what is told, we will have no reason not to believe that God is the one and only Prime Reality. “Acknowledge and take to heart this day that the Lord is God in heaven above and on the earth below, There is no other.” (Deuteronomy 4:39 NIV) The nature of the world around us is the humans, animals, plants and matter (pg 35)....

- Christians believe that they have a responsibility for other people in the world. A responsibility towards those less fortunate is very important to Christians, they believe it is their duty to help the poor and those less fortunate. It is important for Christians to be responsible and care for the people in countries of poverty. God made people in his own image, as it stats in “Pacem in Terris,”: “God also created man in His own image and likeness, endowed him with the intelligence and freedom, and made him lord of creation, as the same psalmist declares in the words: Thou hast placed him only a little below the angels, crowning him with glo...

- Audience and Expectation in John Clare’s An Invite to Eternity Although John Clare’s “An Invite to Eternity” appears to be a direct address to an unknown and anonymous “maiden,” in reality the poem is a much more complex appeal to the reader, which takes on the guise of traditional love poetry only to subvert it. In many ways, Clare’s poem seems to emulate and echo more classical poems such as Marlowe’s “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” in its direct entreaty to a young lover. However, unlike that earlier poem, Clare’s offers his “sweet maid” a less than appealing prospect for future life, presenting her with an “eternity” filled with apocalyptic landscapes and almost monumental huma...

- Many prayers these days include a blessing for the soldiers. It really does not matter where the plea for the troops comes in a prayer; it may be in the middle or tacked on to the end, but it sounds something like the following: “Lord bless our troops, and bring them home safely.” Yes, bless the troops, and every one wants each one to come home safely. However, this is a very general prayer. People use the verb “bless” because they really do not know what to say. What does it mean to “bless?” Some people can relate to the soldiers but most cannot.... [tags: Military Christians]

- There is significant debate about the effect of the church in the world. Did it really disrupt the existing social order. For many years Hans Conzelmann’s thesis that Christians are “docile subjects and trouble arises only when Jews rouse the populace with false accusations against the church” dominated scholarship. Later, Richard Cassidy (Political Issues in Luke-Acts) challenges this perspective by viewing Jesus as a “nonviolent social dissident who was … a potential danger to the Roman empire” by paralleling Jesus’ effect on Rome with Gandhi’s effect on the British empire....

- Many Christians avoid discussions on the afterlife simply because they have absolutely no clue what the future holds. This is a common excuse that Christians give, that nobody can possibly know what is going to happen. However, I believe that this gives Christians easy, reconcilable way of taking the lazy route, not actually giving much thought to the future. Both Christians and non-Christians consistently look to the future to motivate themselves to perform in the present. For example, a student looks to the future where he knows there is a possibility to graduate, which gives him motivation to write a paper for Core 150....

- John: 8:32 “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (NRSV) In tying it all together and having navigated many different paths of “worldviews” my ability to think world-viewishly has been shaped in that I was challenged by countless interpretations as to what constitutes authentic truth/reality in a postmodern world. In my quest to analyze these issues and gain a distinct understanding as to why certain worldviews present truth and reality as that which is certain—however unproven, I was forced to change the lens by which I had previously viewed various worldviews in the past....

- Many Christians today do not see the intrinsic worth of the natural world around them. While there may be people who are very concerned about the wellbeing of our earth, many Christians do not concern themselves with our natural world. However, because of Christianity’s belief in a Creator God, all Christians should care about the Earth. “A major element of the good news to which Christians bear witness is that they themselves are profoundly loved by the Creator of heaven and earth, a God of steadfast mercy and kindness....

- Quest for Eternity in the Poetry of Dickinson Over the past few decades, a considerable number of comments have been made on the idea of eternity in Emily Dickinson's poetry. The following are several examples: Robert Weisbuch's Emily Dickinson's Poetry (1975), Jane Donahue Eberwein's Dickinson: Strategies of Limitation (1985), Dorothy Huff Oberhaus' Emily Dickinson's Fascicles: Method and Meaning (1995), and James McIntosh's Nimble Believing: Dickinson and the Unknown (2000). However, opinions vary as to how Dickinson explored the question regarding eternity; much ink has still been spent on the issue.... [tags: Biography Biographies Essays]

- Having never considered much about world views until after visiting a Christian world view camp, I wanted to know more about mine. As a Christian, naturally I would have a Christian world view, but I did not really know what that meant. I did not think much about the nature of God, or man, or even the cause of evil and suffering. Although I did not doubt my Christianity, I only doubted my knowledge of it, and ability to defend the Christian faith. I knew the root of all suffering came from sin, and that since Adam and Eve sinned, all man is burdened with sin.... [tags: christian, viewpoint, god]
