Paradise Lost and The Blazing World: Knowledge of Knowledge that is Best Left Unknown

- Paradise Lost and The Blazing World: Knowledge of Knowledge that is Best Left Unknown John Milton set out to write Paradise Lost in order to “justify the ways of God to men” (1.26). To achieve this grand goal, Milton relies on his reader’s capability to discover a degree of personal revelation within the text. Many scholars have noted Milton’s reliance on personal discovery throughout Paradise Lost; Stanley Eugene Fish points out that discovery operates in Paradise Lost in a way that “is analogous to that of the Mosaic Law” because it invokes a level of interaction with the reader that is able to “bring us to the righteousness of Christ” (526-7)....   [tags: Paradise lost Blazing World]

The And Of The Hindu Culture

- The name Akasha derives from the Hindu culture, and is a noun because it is referring to an entity or a Spirit of being. The actual root form of the name Akasha is from Sanskrit, “kāś meaning: "to be visible"” (Wikipedia). Among the many spiritual cultures Akasha is connected with, it is no surprise that in nearly every sprititual culture she is in she is associated with division. So for Pagans to the four separate elements and culminate into one Spirit is a rather cathartic beauty in itself.

- Temptations are one of life’s most riveting tests or enticements that we face diurnal. Moreover, it causes us to yearn for something that we do not necessarily need or it causes us to sin. Furthermore, if we give into temptation, we may be blissful, but it will only be ephemeral. It is because of “The Fall of Man” that sin is second nature for us, which in turn makes it facile to give into temptation. In other words, as the verbal expression goes “we were born in sin and live therein.” As a result, our temptations can either make us or break us....   [tags: spirit, hope, bible, god]

Serving Its Purpose to Third World Countries

- For many years, people have thought that the way to help developing countries is by providing foreign aid, but they neglect to understand that without development assistance little change will be done. Frequently I have thought, “If countries pay billions of dollars each year to help third world countries or countries with recent disasters, why are there still millions of children dying of malnutrition and starvation. Why are there people without homes?” Today I stand here, as the leader of a new organization that wants to build on the idea that there can be a better world....   [tags: foreign, development, assistence, organization]

The First World War (WWI)

- Chapter 1: The Right to Make War Since 1795, when Immanuel Kant published in his old age his treatise on "Perpetual Peace," many have considered it an established fact that war is the destruction of all good and the origin of all evil. In spite of all that history teaches, no conviction is felt that the struggle between nations is inevitable, and the growth of civilization is credited with a power to which war must yield. But, undisturbed by such human theories and the change of times, war has again and again marched from country to country with the clash of arms, and has proved its destructive as well as creative and purifying power....   [tags: World War 1 I One]

The essence of understanding the trinity is comprehending that God is three persons, each person is divine, and there is only one God (Johnson, 2014, 174-175).
