Anne Bradstreet's The Flesh and the Spirit

- Anne Bradstreet's The Flesh and the Spirit "The Flesh and the Spirit" by Anne Bradstreet is basically a conversation between two "sisters"--the worldly body and the spiritual soul. Their heated argument concerns the value of life and what really matters in our human lives. The Flesh, who presents her side first, argues that the world offers pleasure, wealth, and fame to those who readily partake. Satisfaction for her is found in the reality of earthly possessions and the fulfillment of her desires....   [tags: Anne Bradstreet Flesh Spirit Essays]

Conflict between Good and Evil in Bradstreet’s The Flesh and the Spirit

- Conflict between Good and Evil in Bradstreet’s The Flesh and the Spirit          A colonial Puritan minister, Thomas Shepard, nicely summarized the paradox of the Puritan religion when he noted that “The greatest part of Christian grace lies in mourning the want of it.”  Shepard suggests, in this passage, that good Christians should spend their days, indeed their entire lives, exploring and proclaiming their own depravity and sinfulness, their “want” of Christian grace.  Paradoxically, only this kind of a life could lead, ultimately, to the possibile attainment of God’s grace and thus entrance into heaven.  For the Puritans, such a formula posed a never-ending, internal conflict: good Ch...   [tags: Bradstreet Flesh and the Spirit Essays]

Youngmo Cho explains the view of M. M. B.

Killing The Flesh

- The principles revealed in this book are inspired truths geared towards teaching you from a biblical standpoint, on how to kill (crucify, mortify) the flesh. As we have learned, the flesh is represented as the carnal mind; it is the Adamic nature, or the old man in its unregenerate state. The carnal, worldly way of thinking separates the person from the spiritual things that consist of God. If one is to truly succeed and reap the benefits of eternal life, they must realize that it can only be achieved through the grace of God, by acknowledging and repenting of their sins....   [tags: Christianity]

The Day Of Pentecost, Holy Spirit And Beginnings Of The Early Church

- The Day of Pentecost, Holy Spirit and Beginnings of the Early Church Introduction What we consider as the church today started a long time ago.

When he preached he challenged the ideas of that which were held constant for years and through him emanated a physical manifestation of a presence so strong that it drew men unto him....   [tags: Holy Spirit, Christianity, Jesus, Glossolalia]

Richard Hague’s The Spirit of Hague

- Richard Hague’s The Spirit of Hague “We’re all angels and heaven is right here,” writes author Richard Hague (24). This sentiment from “Heaven, 1957,” a beautiful piece of prose poetry written about one of Hague’s first spiritual experiences, leads me to this question: What is spirituality. Many people equate it with religion, but in my opinion that is a serious mistake because it greatly limits and eliminates many other possible realms of spirituality. On the one hand, religion is a unified system of beliefs and practices relative to sacred things, which is highly organized and structured, mostly through various denominations of church (Shepard 388)....   [tags: The Spirit of Hague]

Blitz Spirit During World War II in Britain

- In 1940 the government needed to find a way to support both the British at home and the British at war. They did not need widespread panic in Britain to add to their problems and knew that if one city thought the other cities were doing well, then they would certainly believe they should follow suit. So they decided the best way was to hide the worst news from them. At least this way they would only know of the great accomplishments and fights fought by their men at arms, and would keep hope up of them coming home....   [tags: morale, blitz spirit, world war ii, ]
