The CE/BCE notation has been adopted by numerous authors and publishers wishing to be neutral or sensitive to non-Christians because it does not explicitly make use of religious titles for Jesus, such as "Christ" and Domin- ("Lord"), which are used in the BC/AD notation, nor does it give implicit expression to the Christian creed that Jesus was the Christ.  Among the reasons given by those who oppose the use of Common Era notation is that it is selective as other aspects of the Western calendar have origins in various belief systems (e.g., January is named for Janus), and claims that its propagation is the result of secularization, anti-supernaturalism, religious pluralism,
Critique of Competent to Counsel Wendell Otto Dr. Mark Cook PCC 610 Nouthetic Counseling 3/1/2012 One area of Christian ministry that has the greatest need for the influence of biblical theology is counseling. Counseling both in the world and within the church has neglected to study and apply sound theology from the Scriptures. Instead, for at least a century (especially, since the rise of Freudian psychology) the Church has been taking its cues from the “world,” rather than from the inspired Scriptures. As a result, much of the teaching, instruction, and practice of “Christian counseling” has been deficient because it has embraced the “wisdom of this world [which] is folly with God” (1Cor 3:19-20). When it comes to counseling,
Within the family structure, adults choose the information that children are permitted to learn (not teaching curse words, etc.). Religions provide theological information important only to each religions doctrine and the State gives or takes information based on what they deem as functional necessity. Postman’s position that the ever increasing technological advances are detrimental to our society is based on information control systems losing their abilities to perform as originally designed; society is losing its traditional (moral and spiritual) values. According to Postman (1992) “when the supply of information is no longer controllable, a general breakdown in psychic tranquility and social purpose
According to Mathew D. Staver, people oppose certain vaccines because some vaccines are made from aborted fetal tissue; such as vaccines for Chicken pox, Hepatitis-A, and Rubella. People who hold strong religious beliefs against abortion oppose these vaccines for the same reasons they oppose abortion. Also, individuals believe that God created the human body as a temple and that the body should not be destroyed by injecting a virus into it. In addition, making vaccines mandatory would violate the first amendment that protects freedom of religion, speech, press, assembly, etc. Another reason on why there might be doubt on whether or not to get vaccinated is the reaction some people get or do not once vaccinated.
Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe it is acceptable to receive transfusions of red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, or plasma. Jehovah’s Witnesses literally interpret a passage from the bible Genesis 9:3-4 which states, “Only flesh from its soul - - its blood - - you must not eat” (CTV News, 2002). Although Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in blood transfusions some individuals may make a personal choice to use fractions of red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, or platelets if the need arises (AJWRB, 2006). A 15-year-old, who for the purpose of the paper will be called Sarah, continues to face a tough ethical battle. The young woman is a Jehovah’s Witness who is living with Crohn’s disease.
Also, the government could offend migrants if they are in control of the church and religion. Finally, we should practice what the bible says, and the bible definitely doesn’t say to pray in public through government. We should never mix church and state together, it creates so much tension. Just think how many migrants who come from different countries and different cultures and religions, if the government controlled the church they might not even let them come the U.S. so that would cause just devastating tension, and it could lead to World War III. How many times in the history of everything that things repeat themselves, many.

Stack (2011), “It wasn't until 1914 that drug use was defined as a crime, under the Harrison Act,” (para. 4). Use of Cannabis is seen throughout history and became taboo in the eyes of Americans after finding that many medicinal drugs used were found to be addictive. To this day all narcotic drugs used to treat a variety of conditions are proven to be addictive and are all still widely used in the practice of medicine. Ethical issues and a lack of research studies that prove the effectiveness of Cannabis are the reason the drug has not be legalized in all states.
These are the concerns that legalization will make marijuana more of an abusive drug, especially by children. Also, many people not supporting medical marijuana state that there is still little proof that marijuana has any medicinal value. The National Institute of Health studies the use of marijuana to relive pain and found some interesting facts. No clinical trials involving smoked marijuana have been performed in patients with naturally occurring pain. Two adequate and well-controlled studies in cancer pain compared graded doses of oral 9-THC to placebo, and one of these included graded doses of codeine as a control.
Constitution states that the government cannot make laws “prohibiting the free exercise of religion”. Therefore many people who use marijuana as a religious rituals because marijuana is illegal. The law on not using marijuana force them not to use marijuana clearly prohibits the free exercise.
