In Deuteronomy chapter 24 Moses talked about marriages, divorce, stealing and remind them that everyone have to pay for their own sin. Before Moses died he talked to Israel about the blessing if they did God’s will and the curses if they didn’t Deuteronomy chapter 28. Joshua Joshua was Moses minister and chosen by God to lead Israel after Moses death. Joshua means Jehovah is salvation. In Greek Joshua means Jesus.
Right away, the crowd is moved by Brutus’ speech and is immediately on Brutus’ side. Brutus makes sure he respects everyone by asking if he offended anyone. Brutus also uses logos in his speech. He lets the crowd know that if Caesar was still alive and resumed on becoming king, they would all be slaves, “Would you rather that Caesar living and we would all go to our graves as slaves, or that Caesar were dead and we all lived as free men?” (3,2 pg.129). Brutus assumes that they would be slaves if Caesar became king and he logically explains what went through his head.
King states, “I am in Birmingham because injustice is here. Just as the prophets of the eighth century B.C. left their villages and carried their “thus saith the Lord” far beyond the boundaries of their home towns, and just as the Apostle Paul left his village of Tarsus and carried the gospel of Jesus Christ to the far corners of the Greco-Roman world, so am I compelled to carry the gospel of freedom beyond my own home town. Like Paul, I must constantly respond to the Macedonian call for aid. (70) Martin Luther King Jr. compares himself to Paul because he wants his audience, the eight clergymen, to understand
In conclusion, in Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey, we see the roles that gods and fate play in the lives of mortals. Odysseus is both aided and troubled the actions of Gods, but ultimately reaches his goal of returning home. Without the aid of the Gods, particularly Zeus and Athena, Odysseus would not have been able to reclaim his throne and return home to his wife, son, and palace. Persistence remains strong in Odysseus throughout the story, but only divine intervention and fate help him ward off troubles and conquer all
The moral law of God may be defined as ‘the expression of God’s will’ enforced by His power, for His rational beings. Here there is a judgement being made by god. In the Genesis God can be seen as Judge because After Adam and Eve had eaten the forbidden fruit, it says ‘And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed … and so on this in my opinion definitely shows God as Judge. Another reason why God is seen as law giver is when God says to Moses "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen." It also shows that God has
Hitler used secret police and hard handed tactics to establish his power, however, FDR used the power of patriotism to entice Americans in the war effort. He gave the “Four Freedoms speech” in which FDR shared his vision of what these troops would be fighting for: “We look to a world founded upon four essential freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression…The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way…The third is freedom from want (need)…The fourth is freedom from fear.” Hitler enacted a new form of warfare called the blitzkrieg, lightning war, which was a fast, concentrated air and land attack that took the enemy’s army by surprise. The Germans also used stuka, a dive-bombing airplane, to try to weaken the enemy before the tanks and troops moved in. FDR used a more traditional type of warfare.

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY THE USE OF RELIGION IN EARLY CHAPLAINCY A PAPER SUBMITTED TO DR. JIM FISHER IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COURSE CHPL 500 LIBERTY THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA MONDAY FEBRUARY 22, 2010 The use of religion in early history of the chaplaincy by and large seems to have been formulated mostly to rouse the troops to battle with a sense of well-being knowing that their God was on their side, and that the undertaking they were about to engage in was a righteous one. In the ancient biblical days, we see Moses as the commander/chaplain of sorts for the Hebrew forces in a battle against the Amalekites. Moses’ lifted hands acted as a morale boost
