CHRISTIANITY VS. JUDAISM Christianity and Judaism are religions that are each very unique. Although they both have plenty of differences, they also have similarities. In fact they probably have more in common than some of the other major religions in the world, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam. Although both Christians and Jews believe God to be their creator and controller; Judaism has no founder, as opposed to Christianity whose founder was Jesus Christ. In Christianity it is believed that Jesus Christ was the savior to all humanity and was sent to Earth by his father (God) to pay for the sins of all mankind.
Blakesley’s definition of film rhetoric consists of four categories: Language, Ideology, Interpretation, and Identification. In his analysis of Vertigo, Blakesley used Film Identification as the main framework for interpretation. I decided to use Film Language because of the film I chose to analyze (a reason similar to Blakesley); it was because of Stanley Kubrick’s forceful use of color that I decided to see what meaning could be wrung from such a display. Authors such as Dale Williams have also studied 2001: A Space Odyssey using a rhetorical framework, but not based on color. Williams used a framework based in Kenneth Burke’s ideologies behind the religious progression of people who obey to people who dissent, then from dissention to penance through sacrifice (Williams, 1984).
The belief that there was only one God caused the formation the Doctrine of the Trinity. All of this includes who God was, what he did, and what he taught. In the book “Theology for Beginners” written by Frank Sheed, the Trinity is explained to be the Christian Doctrine that discusses and describes the nature of God. The nature of God simply means the essential characteristics and qualities of his being. The Christian Doctrine consists of the following: there is only one God and that God himself exists in three distinct persons.

In 2007, the house received its first Muslim congressman, Keith Ellison, and its first Buddhist congress members, Hank Johnson and Mazie Hirono.

This paper is a review of Phyllis Tickle’s book, “The Great Emergence: How Christianity is Changing and Why,” published in 2008 by Baker Books. The author Phyllis Tickle introduces the book as a piece that seeks to use history as its background to being a conversation about the change that is slowly taking place in our society today in Christianity – that the American church is on the cusp of a major change on the scale of the great schism and the reformation. Tickle begins the book explaining what she describes as “The Great Emergence,” through the illustration of a rummage sale – in that a rummage sale the owners seek to clear out what is unnecessary and no longer relevant or needed. Tickle proposes that this is exactly what the church needs and is heading towards, if not already there. The traditions, beliefs and practices that the church has held up to this point will be sort out and discarded as a result of the changing times.
Ethically Challenged, Westboro Baptist Robert W. Bechtold SOC 120 Instructor Emily Archer September 1, 2013 Ethically Challenged, Westboro Baptist In June of 2005 the Westboro Baptist Church made international headlines for picketing the funeral of Carrie French, a fallen American soldier killed in Kirkuk, Iraq (Brouwer, 2007). The incident was not the first to gain such notoriety for the group but demonstrations of this sort are what I will focus on for the purpose of this paper. The nearly 600 demonstrations of the Westboro Baptist Church at military funerals present a challenge to the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States: allowing ethically unchallenged communication or
Although he never uses any scripture, Huxley uses many people and events as biblical symbols. John the Savage is a Christ figure in Brave New World. His name could arguably allude to John the Baptist, but his actions suggest that he is a symbol for Jesus. John escapes to the lighthouse at the end of the novel, beats himself badly, and stands with his
They believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that God sent His only Son (Jesus) to earth to save humankind from the penalty of their sins. One of the most important concepts in Christianity is that Jesus gave His life on the cross which was called the crucifixion, and then He was buried, and on the third day He rose from the dead which is called the resurrection. This is summarized in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 which is the foundation of Christian belief. Exclusive among all the faiths, Christianity is more about having a relationship with God than religions practices. The goal of a Christian is to develop a close relationship with God through (Word of God) the ministry of Jesus Christ and by the aid of the Holy Spirit.
