The Indians values clearly do not align with the morals and sets of values of Christianity. After the previous missionary finally dies, the Huron ask LaForgue how long he will stay. LaForgue says he will stay for the rest of his life and that he loves them. The Huron then ask to be baptized in hopes that it will cure them from the sickness. Father LaForgue, unlike the previous missionaries, does not lie to the Huron, and explains to them that being baptized will not cure the Huron of their sickness, but their prayers may be heard by his lord and savior Jesus Christ.
Form criticism is used in this story because there is an oral tradition hidden in the text. The oral tradition used is that the Israelites have to trust in God. He led them through Moses out of Egypt to freedom. If the Israelites learn from the exodus from Egypt, then they should know that God wouldn’t let them thirst to death. The story of Numbers is told somewhat differently: The Israelites had no water while in the wilderness, and complained to Moses and Aaron.
h/s Learning points from subsections 1.1 to 1.6 18/9/15 1.1- Call of the first disciples -Obedience and commitment were very important.

Always Remembering Does God judge people for who they are, or is God’s only duty is to save the world? In the Gospel of John, he states that God does judge people. John: 22-27 says, “For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son. The Father hath given him authority to execute judgment.” In another verse that we read God does not judge people for who they are, but came to this world to save the firm believers. In John 12: 47 we read, “And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.” Therefore in my paper I’ll explore if God judges people of their personality, character, and reputation, or if God’s duty is to save the world.
No one in the Israelite camp was willing to step forward and accept Goliath’s challenge. Upon his arrival at the Israelite camp to deliver supplies, David hears yet another challenge from Goliath. With God’s help, David takes up the challenge and with his sling slays Goliath. As evidenced by his willingness to step forward, David proves to be a brave and fearless man. The difference between David and Saul was that David developed and held to a personal relationship with God.
Soon after, we are able to find that spirits are the children of god. A man can not accuse another man of not believing in a god when he refers to the existence of god’s children. If one were to dig a little deeper however, Socrates also states that the ideas he comes up with, are actually ideas he passes on to the inquiring minds in future generations. The ideas all came from scrolls of respected men in the culture they live in. Socrates also admits the obvious in the passage by saying because he has not experienced the after-life, he is not able to pass judgment on what is to come.
Genesis also goes about this in a more realistic way because the people were promised it would not happen again. The God’s in Gilgamesh never promised anything. They just argued and fought like regular humans. After the floods are over the Gods in Gilgamesh placed a limit on the growth of population, but in Genesis they were told to go forth and multiply. A God is expected to be responsible and someone who is well respected.
(Page 272) He returned to school the following morning. His fathers disapproved of him dropping out; the fathers influence on the son was enough to make him change his decision. The mother was not pleased but this and could not believe her own son would "choose useless books over the parents they gave him life." (Page 272) This lead to influencing the narrator to join his father on the boat when his uncle left his father in order to support his growing family. He told his father that he would "remain with him as long as he lived" and continue to fish with him.
Obviously, Peter felt fairly certain he would not disappoint the Savior. However, he had some painful experiences awaiting him as he finished his preparations to become the leader of the Church. Following the resurrection, Peter still had not fully arrived at the point where he possessed the vision and capacity to fulfill the Savior's command to strengthen his brethren. After experiencing the most glorious event in the history of the world––the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Peter remained somewhat aimless. Instead of walking the streets shouting the message, Peter said, “I go a fishing” (John 21:3).
Some that participate in this injustice may rationalize that one cannot be murdered until he is born, but the Bible plainly teaches in Job 31:15 that life begins in the womb. God gave every person life (Psalm 100:3), who are we to take it away or mistreat it? Others may not kill off their infant, but will choose to walk away from the responsibility of facing their own actions by abandoning or abusing the child. God continues to stay and support us in all
