Luther was a man of the establishment. He was not a revolutionary in any way, and not a man of the people. He was a serious reformer of the clergy but had otherwise little ambitions to change the very fabric of society. The princes that Luther supported used religion to extend their financial and political independence. Calvin chose to support the peasants and won following over the Dutch Netherlands and made a small gain in Germany.
Dr. Anderson displays a strong foundation of counseling through truth and having a relationship with Christ. Other web based articles were used to support the theory of Anderson’s book. Although the web based articles other different avenues of Christian counseling all of the sources used share a common root, how to show others how to overcome their problems to become healthy well adjusted individuals by using biblical concepts. Christian Counseling to the Spiritually Oppressed Discipleship is receiving instruction from a religious leader and being a follower who has learned to believe in the truth of the doctrine of his teacher. Discipleship in today’s world can be in the form of a Christian counseling.
Analytical Review of the Book of James The book of James has been called the practical book of the New Testament by many. This review will cover the purpose of the book, why it was included in the Bible, what would be missing if not included, and how it applies or is relevant to today. The purpose of the book of James is to foster practical Christian living. The church people in James’ day were beginning to have undermining attitudes and practices. James speaks against these in his teaching.
They also opposed a national bank nervous it would give too much power to t he central government. Republicans or anti- federalists believed the American economy should be based on agriculture while Federalists counted on industrial and commercial economy. With or without Hamilton and Jefferson’s intelligence and strongly backed up ideas, a division between government was unavoidable. Too many people had too many ideas and no matter what there couldn’t be a solution of plans in America. George Washington expressed a good point when he said “This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its roots in the strongest passions of the human mind.
Transformative Role of the Spirit in Moral Ethics as Presented by Luke and Paul Deborah Lein INTRODUCTION Definition of Ethics Christian ethics as a branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and to the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions, has been examined extensively with an overabundance of literature being produced regarding it. Furnish, however, provides a worthwhile caution regarding Pauline ethics, but is just as apropos for all the New Testament writers, that though Paul does instruct and advise his readers, it is almost always done on an as needed basis for each specific situation. Furnish says that ‘no single practical ethical pattern or “Christian code of conduct” is ever promulgated.’1 The warning is to prevent attempts to collect the specific exhortations of the New Testament and gather them together into a comprehensive rule book for the Christian life. For the purposes of this paper we will not attempt to compile and provide commentary on all of Luke and Paul’s admonitions, but rather to explore ethics in connection with what Luke and Paul think about the Spirit’s function in the believer and how His work affects the Christian’s morality and way of life. Spirit’s Prior Work As we compare and contrast Luke and Paul’s writings and what it says implicitly about the Sprit’s work in relation to moral ethics, some presumed groundwork needs to be understood as recounted for us by Luke in his second book.
WHY NATIONS GO TO WAR There are often people who ask the big question, “Why do nations feel the need to go to war?” One of the main reasons for this question comes from the loss of life that comes with it. However, on an opinionated theory I have concluded that a larger portion of why a nation decides to go to war would be to expand their territory. They could even be trying to gain freedom for their nation. Many times nations use scarcity of resources in their own country to justify warring with another nation for theirs. Regardless, the nations that begin a war will always be able to provide some reason for the fighting.
One’s first interest is self-preservation, but “Lockean self-interest proves to be inseparable from service to others.” (West, 2008, p. 594) Locke also speaks of Biblical principles where a man born free must work for himself and not live off the labor of others. Men have duties as well as rights and one of those duties is that of citizenship, or civic duty. (West, 2008) This is a point missed by many Americans today. With today’s fast-paced and hectic life style, many are just trying to survive the day-to-day grind. Every American is equal under the law and they can all quote you their rights, but many do not realize that political participation and civic involvement are a duty and not an option.
War created the United Nations, the Geneva Conventions, and the Red Cross. So, it can be argued that what brings out the very worst in the human condition also, in a very warped way, brings out the best in us as well. War, by definition, means a period of conflict. The opinions about war alter from person to person and year to year. If a military expert or the president is questioned, he might think wars are good because they can boast about military efficiency.
Petra Bruno The Rise and Decline of Fascism and Nazism. After the First World War there was a lot of instability in many countries, some of them had enormous difficulties. Democratically elected politicians seemed to spend more time arguing than solving the problems. Often the people were so impatient that they wanted a leader, who took all the decisions and made things happen. They would support him as he will give them stability.
