King describes the church as the possible “true ekklesia” meaning that the church could be a major factor in the human rights movement if it participated and it could even be a key factor in promoting equal rights. 3. In his letter, King puts more emphasis on religion in his essay because he feels that people will connect to good will better through religion than through patriotism.

The fruits of the Spirit are not for proof, but rather are evidence of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of God in the believer. The fruits of the Spirit are reflective of the character of God and allowing for our character to change. The gifts are reflective of the power and presence of God.

Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Cynthia Warren Liberty University Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Summary Entwistle’s goal of this book is to inform the reader that there are two different books of God: His word and His works (Enwistle, 2010, p. 26). The Bible states, Jesus and His disciples used integration to perform God’s work. As in 2 Timothy 3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. The book is filled with information that provides an explanation of the relationship between psychology (God’s works) and theology (God’s words).

Mr. Andrew did a good job of changing how the epistemological argument was made by asking the likelihood instead of using circular reasoning. This argument gained ground in my thinking once he argued it inductively.

That no matter what are cultures are we can evolve while staying true to ourselves and are roots. So whatever category one’s culture labels it’s all a meme of a belief in someone or something being the teacher, philosopher that we should follow his word and know that other cultures beliefs may seem to imitate each other. That some disagree that they believe in what another culture or religion believes to be what they believe to be Jesus and what he stands for also.

According to McGrath the inclusivist viewpoint became popular in the 1890’s centered on words from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount that He came to fulfill not to destroy. Inclusivist thought could be summarized as “all that there is of truth and inspiration in other religions must find its fulfillment in Jesus Christ” (McGrath, 2011,
