The Suffering Of The Present Time

- [18] I consider that the suffering of the present time are not worth comparing with the glory about to be revealed to us. This is both a statement of consolation and encouragement in face of the present reality faced by Christians in Rome. The suffering of the present time represents a moment of eschatological time anticipated in the present comparing with the glory about to be revealed. As C.K. Barrett writes, “Paul now goes on to describe the interim period, showing how Christians should take courage both from the prospect of glory and from the assistance already given by the Holy Spirit.” Accordingly, the cost of present suffering is less than the glory that is to be experienced in the f...   [tags: Christianity, Jesus, Time, Future]

Time Is An Invaluable Resource

It is easy to fall into a trap where you end up wasting time, like procrastinating, or worrying needlessly about things outside of your control.

Philip Zimbardo 's Time Orientation Theory

- “Life is all about making decisions: some big, some little, some mundane, some vital to your existence.” (Zimabardo & Boyd Prologue) Philip Zimbardo’s Time Orientation Theory states that our choices are surrounded by many time zones, such as past-positive, past-negative, present-hedonistic, present-fatalism, and future. Many people acquire a prejudiced outlook on a situation based on something that happened in the past, present, or future although these bad outlooks can be changed and adapted to make better decisions and live a better life....   [tags: Present, Time, Past, Future]

Why Time Is An Illusion

Many people interpret that figuratively and end up thinking that he means the time is what you make of it or a different philosophical concept of time, but Einstein meant it quite literally.

There are many reasons why time is not real and some of these include the fundamental properties of time, the relativity of time, how time is determined on a universal scale, and how time is used.
