The Old Testament and Principlism

- Introduction The Old Testament law is seen as irrelevant by most modern Christians today. Christians are now under the blood of Jesus Christ which is said to abrogate the Law. Galatians 6:2 says, “Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.” The law of Christ is to love God and your neighbor as yourself. This does not mean, however, that the Old Testament Law does not apply to Christians today. Author J. Daniel Hays expounds on this topic in his article, “Applying the Old Testament Law Today,” and focuses on the hermeneutical approach of Principlism....   [tags: Bible, Reflection, Application]

Knowledge Rather than Correct Opinion: Analyzing the Nature of Augustine’s Confession and Reflection

- In his book Confessions, Saint Augustine writes about his conversion from a Manichee to a Christian. He confesses to God and asserts that God is “incorruptible and inviolable and unchangeable” (Augustine 111). Based on his deep faith in God, Augustine abandons the concept of Manichee dualism and believes in God as “not only [the] good but the supreme good” (114). At first he has no idea what the nature of evil is, but finally he starts to understand that the nature of evil is not a substance at all, but rather “a perversity of will twisted away from the highest substance [– God]” (Augustine 124-126)....   [tags: Christianity, Truth]

- My father speaks slowly; his sentences deliberate, exhaustive and eloquent. His ability to describe every step of a mechanical process—with absolute clarity and precision—astounds and inspires me. His compulsion to describe every emotional nuance—with absolute clarity and precision—used to infuriate me. I would become so impatient while arguing with him; I’d fume, and he’d plod through the plot of our conflict, back not just to the flashpoint incident, but farther yet to the underlying principles he understood, and wished I would, and which I wished to scorch....   [tags: fatherhood, introspective analysis]

Literature: A Reflection of Society

- In 1445, Johann Gutenberg invented the printing press and changed the world forever. Before this miraculous invention, the only way people could copy literary texts was by hand, which was a very tedious and expensive process. With the help of Gutenberg’s genius, reading materials spread across Europe with more speed than ever because the inexpensive cost of bookmaking led to a rise in sales from the people during that time period. The first book printed was the Bible in Latin, which has since gone on to be the most translated and purchased book in the world....   [tags: influences in history and the world]

What Is Race: My Reflection

I did not legitimately understand what racial discrimination was as a child because it was never an issue for me. I grew up, where aside from learning about Martin Luther King; in school we were never suitably educated about racial differences in either a bad or a good way.

The Crook Crew: Personal Reflection

I will scratch the surface of what my family system entails, however like most modern families there is so much deviation in day to day life it is difficult to find one or even two basic underlying themes to describe. The first thing I will discuss is an unwritten family rule and how that rule impacted my decision making throughout my development. When comparing family rules it is often easy to stamp a label upon relationships and parenting styles as a certain type but as most developmentalist would agree the family system is so diverse it is difficult to say one family is this and only this parenting style....   [tags: my family rules and integration]

Reflection on Arts in Performance

- The experience I will take away from Arts In Performance, is built on the wealth of new things I tried because of the course. Before the class I had never really listened to the Blues, or even heard of Buddy guy. Now I can say I am a fan. I have seen more performance this year in the last nineteen years of my life combined. There were great and not so great moments, but I don’t regret going to any of the shows. I was surprised by the things I liked, I never expected to like the Blues.

Reflection of Cannibalistic Societies through Diary of a Madman And the Correlation to Today's Society

Why the Moon Appears to Change Color

- The reason the moon appears to change color is due to the reflection of visible light coming from the sun. Because the moon has no light of its own it relies on the reflected light of the sun to create moonlight and change color. The reflection of light coming from the sun cause’s the moon to appear as if it is changing color because as the sun’s light rays travel through the earth’s atmosphere the moon catches light from the sun and reflects it down to earth. As the moon reflects the sun’s light rays down to earth, those rays of light travel through the earth’s atmosphere in the form of different wavelengths which then produce different colors of visible light....   [tags: visible light, reflection, color, rays]

This unit is probably one of the most enjoyable units of drama because it combines hands on activities with drama. Masks are a very important piece of art in many plays and live shows. Using masks during a show enables the actor to become more than one character, and enhances their ability to act by letting them experience different personalities. Masks in the theatre are also used to express and reinforce the character and the story, create a distance between the actor on stage and the character of the story....   [tags: Drama]
