They have had a very different upbringing to all of us, and their values and beliefs are very different to our own. This has caused many conflicts, particularly with the male Muslims taking instructions from younger female staff. My line manager and I have tried to educate when issues arise, having working with Muslims for many years, and asking them questions, we understand more of their values, and reinforcing a zero tolerance for any discrimination due to their beliefs. Members of staff that are lazy or regularly flout the rules are another factor for workplace conflict. If a member of staff is regularly late to work when others are always on time, or a member of staff uses their mobile phone when it is banned, this will cause conflict.
Beginning in chapter 12 Paul discussed how Christians are to live. In Romans 12:1 Paul urges the Christians: “in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.” Paul continuously reminds the people to live above reproach and renew their minds so that they do not become part of the world. In the entire book of Romans Paul discusses the topic of how we as Christians should live, but Moo makes a great point in our book of how chapter 12 is a more in depth teaching on this matter. Moo states that "All theology is practical, and all practice, if it is truly Christian, is theological. Paul's gospel is deeply theological, but it is also eminently practical.
Based on family heritage and life, people form their own biases towards others and other situations without realizing it. The situations people often find themselves in - such as a new home, new ideas and powers; mold the opinions they already have, causing people to judge others, or have a change in attitude. In reading both John Dane’s memoir and Nathaniel Bacon’s “Declaration,” the reader can see that Dane’s attitude on God and his Puritan believes have shifted, while Bacon seems to be in a race for power. In John Dane’s memoir, he explains to us the type of life he led, up until he found what he had been searching for - to discover what he could actually do for God and his mercy. With Nathaniel Bacon, we see a hostile attitude towards

Part One One’s perception of what a worldview is varies greatly on the world around that individual at a specific time. The beliefs one learns, the culture one grows up with, one’s social economic standing, or even one’s education level can paint a different picture of an individual’s worldview. Many times people are unaware of their worldview because this view developed out of predisposed ideals, which are subject to constant changes based on ones surroundings. Individuals see his/her current worldview differently based on that individual’s conclusive knowledge. Part Two The biblical/Christian worldview belief derived from biblical text and scriptures are based on the Word of God.
The Cycle of Sexual Response Introduction to Psychology The Cycle of Sexual Response Sex is part of most intimate adult relationships, and many would argue it is an important element to the long-term relationship. What some may now realize is that sexual response can be said to have a cycle. The sexual response cycle is defined as “changes that occur in the body as men and women become sexually aroused” (Nevid & Rathus, 2005, p. 445), and the cycle is broken into four phases: excitement, plateau, orgasmic, and resolution. Through each of the phases, the male and female body works to respond to stimuli, which aides in the pleasure and satisfaction. Females and males transcend the four phases, and surprisingly, some of the phases are similar for both sexes, while others are different.
Both these ideas are very different than each other on many different counts. Coming form an orthodox Indian family, it took me a while to understand and to recoup myself from the cultural shock I faced; there were many outlooks I encountered on my journey to find my sexual ethics and abide by them. Living in two worlds at the same time had left me confused about what is wrong and what is right. By writing these code of sexual ethics for the next generation, I hope to make it easier for them to blend in two different worlds faster, and without facing many challenges I faced differentiating between the two different views. Sexual ethics are very important; they build one’s future.
2) Discipleship Counseling Through the use of personal and professional experiences, Dr. Neil T. Anderson (2003) lays the foundation for future counselors to use as a guide to reach mentally ill individuals in his book Discipleship Counseling (Anderson, 2003). This instructional piece gives current and future counselors the instruction and information needed to reach out and counsel the spiritually oppressed. Anderson (2003) breaks this piece of literature down into three main focuses: defining and understanding mental health; counseling the spiritually oppressed; overcoming false guidance, deception, bitterness and rebellion—and helping others experience freedom in Christ. Discipleship Counseling also gives the reader a better understanding of how discipleship counseling works and shows them the basis of
Over the centuries, a distinct change has occurred involving the influence of unwed motherhood, which significantly impacts society, the church, and individuals. After a person commits such a sin, many life-changing decisions must be made, including whether to follow the Bible or to turn towards fleshly direction. Mothers going through this difficult time need love and guidance to make these important decisions, and the church should be there to help. The role of the Christian church in this situation, however, has changed drastically over the years, but certain fundamentals and beliefs remain intact. Looking back, these opinions of acceptance and guidance were not always evident in the early church; some believed it was best to judge and punish the unwed mothers for their sin.
