Love and Psychotherapy

- “Love and Psychotherapy are fundamentally incompatible. A good therapist fights darkness and seeks illumination, while romantic love is sustained by mystery and crumbles upon inspection” (use citation) This is the overall theme that is prevalent throughout the first story of Yalom’s book that is also titled, “Loves Executioner” In this story Yalom decides to treat a 70-year-old woman named, “Thelma” that had a love affair with her former therapist, Mathew, eight years ago. Although Yalom believed no one was beyond his skills that he could break Thelma’s obsession with her former therapist, he soon realized that he was overcome by excessive hubris and the problem was more intricate and comp...   [tags: Reflective Essay, Yalom]

The Definition of Disciple

- The Definition of Disciple Discipleship is the core of Christian ethics, especially as the last command of Jesus (28:19). When I heard the word “disciple” in childhood Sunday School, I envisioned an eager, bearded man with dirty robes straining intently towards Jesus, like a child begging to hear more of a bedtime story. In high school youth group, we talked about being good disciples by obeying the rules: no kissing, no running, no talking in church. But as I re-read Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s stirring, straightforward work, The Cost of Discipleship as a Lenten devotional, my idea of what a disciple is and does is crumbling like old paint....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Dead Man Walking Book Review

- Dead Man Walking Dead Man Walking, a story by Sister Helen Prejean, is a superb book, presenting most of the aspects regarding capital punishment. According to my opinion the unique thing about this book, is its ability to make people reflect upon and even question their earlier thoughts concerning the death penalty. Many different points of view are presents, but the book doesn’t pick sides. Dead Man Walking manages to remain objective even when we approach the painful end. The book is based on Sister Helen Prejean’s experiences with inmates on death row....   [tags: essays research papers]

Job Discrimination

- Job discrimination has been a poison polluting the atmosphere of the workforce for a countless number of decades. Unfortunately, it is a poison that still lingers in today’s modern workforce. To combat this threat, and to aid those individuals affected, several Federal laws have been implemented to prohibit job discrimination. The Civil Rights Act of 1964, as an example, is a Federal legislation that outlawed unequal opportunities and rights in the workplace. The purpose of this legislation is to prohibit employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin ("Federal laws prohibiting," 2009)....   [tags: Discrimination]

The Bible As A Historical Document - Who Was Jesus?

- I felt a very positive impression of who Jesus was after finishing the Book of Matthew. I had a new image of someone who was a down-to-earth, caring individual. I did not find quotes of Jesus that claimed being superior to the common man, of whom sinners could not look upon (a view that most people had of their Gods for centuries before). Matthew 12:49-50, Jesus announces to multitudes that they are his mother and brothers.

Capital Punishment and Christians

- Capital Punishment and Christians In my opinion, I think that Capital Punishment is only relevant if a serious crime is committed such as murder or terrorism as these cause a great deal of suffering towards other people, some who might not even have been involved. I also think that criminals should have the choice whether or not they want to die or would rather suffer a life sentence. However under some circumstances some crimes such as petty theft are more suited to less drastic punishments such as Reform although some Christians believe in justice so some might prefer it if a criminal served a life sentence....   [tags: Papers]

- After the Protestant Reformation began to take hold, the Catholic Church responded with their own Counter Reformation. To combat the spread of Protestantism, the Church developed a new style of art that was dramatic, full of emotion, and very realistic. This new style, which came to be known as Baroque, contrasted with the genre paintings of the Protestant North that were often used to teach moral lessons (Sullivan). Originating in Italy in the 16th century, it was used by the Church to retain followers by depicting religious scenes that were expressive, visually interesting, and interactive (Fiero 203)....   [tags: Class Distinctions, Counter Reformation]

Once I got into the word, I realized that I had dealt with this topic before, when our leader was “testing” our response to “questions of contradiction.” This is what I have concluded. First of all, notice that the text does not say that Judas died as a result of hanging. All it says is that he "went and hanged himself." Luke however, in Acts, tells us that "and falling headlong, he burst open in the middle and all his entrails gushed out." This is a pretty clear indication (along with the other details given in Acts - Peter's speech, the need to pick a new apostle, etc.) that at least after Judas'...   [tags: essays research papers]
