 Religious Beliefs in Early B. C. Period Since the beginning of time people have searched and studied very hard to find a religious practice that would sooth there soul. People have always found something or someone to worship. There are still many religious groups or churches that believe opposite of each other. The religious groups or churches of people usually have a book or some form of religious laws in which they try to live by. Some even have steps of achievement and are working hard to please the Lord, so they will not go to hell in the end or when they die a physical death. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and that he is the son of the only God, which created all of the universe. I do believe in the Bible in its entirety. I am a member of a Southern Baptist Church, which is an organization. I was brought up in a Baptist church in which my father was the pastor in. He is a very intelligent man, and I believe that he would not have shared with me about Jesus if he did not believe with all of his heart.

He kept going hoping, believing, and searching for an answer. This is how we should be today. We should search through the readings of the Bible. In our journey on this world we should try to do right, not lose faith in the Lord, and keep living our life with a goal of reaching heaven. To Aeneas present day Italy was his goal. To us, heaven should be our goal. It is possible to reach it, but it is not a free gift we have to believe and repent and live our life for it. This is the strongest tie I found between Aeneas and I. I hope I have the lasting faith of Aeneas. Wok Cited Rodu, Brad. “Aeneid and Odyssey” Tribune Review. Pittsburg, May 1, 1997. Edell, Dr. Dean. Aeneas the Prince.
