Federalism, combined with the three governing branches, allowed for the states and central government to balance equal but separate power. Within this paper, I will attempt to explain the three branches of government, discuss the history and the formation of branches, provide their interactions within the system, discuss their successfulness, the characterizations of the branches then and now, and present possible ideas for a more efficient constitution. Before one can completely understand the sole purpose behind why the forefathers of the United States were compelled to form and divide a new government into three separate branches, one should become familiar with the meanings and functions of each branch. The Executive branch of the government is responsible for enforcing the laws of the land (USA.gov 2000-2012). The functions of law under the Executive branch, is administered and enforced by the United States President, who is first elected by the citizens of the country.
Running head: Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Andrea Reid Liberty University David Entwistle’s book Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity: An Introduction to Worldview Issues, Philosophical Foundations, and Model of Integration (2010) is in regards to the history of faith and science. The perception of whether Christianity and psychology can co-mingle with having different views but both disclosing the same goal and understanding the past and how worldviews and discipline has shaped civilization. As we take this enlightening journey through history of coming full circle we must take a look at Christianity and Psychology and its meaning. “For Christian, Christianity provides a worldview from which to understand the nature of the world and the nature of humanity” (p. 11) and the “Psychology functions as a science only as it uses the scientific method in application to its subject” (p. 41). Entwistle would like his readers to mediate on what appears to be a conflict between psychology and Christianity dating back to 1543 when Nicholaus Copernicus published “De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium” referring to the theory heliocentric and 1612 when Galileo revisited the heliocentric theory before being barred in 1616 of his teachings.
After 1603 the Stuart Kings faced the problem of composite monarchy. Which was in itself a tangible symbol of the early modern state, examples include the Ottoman Empire and early modern Spain. The Stuarts now faced the task of managing three very different kingdoms with three parliaments, churches, privy councils and three national aristocracies. James was ambitious and driven enough to try to build a personal union between the Crowns of England and Scotland, establishing a single country under one monarch, one

The central part of the book deals with the conflict with Rome, and particularly what it was referred as to “The Diet of Worms”. The latter portion of the book explores the contributions Luther made to the building of the new Protestant traditions. The purpose of the book is to portrait an intimate view of who Luther was and his spiritual struggles leading him into the reformation period. Roland H. Bainton (1894–1984) was born in England and came to the United States in 1902. Dr. Bainton was a specialist in Reformation history and for many years he was Titus Street Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Yale University.
The book Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond had many themes but in my opinion the three main themes of the book were geographic luck, development of technology, and conquest. These themes were reiterated throughout the book when Diamond kept bringing up multiple examples from history to try and prove that it’s not based on the intelligence, or race of people, who succeeds, it’s based on Diamond’s main theme geographic luck. Geographic Luck Jared Diamond talked about how geographic luck played an important role in world history, and a few of the things he talked about were having an east to west axis compared to having a north to south axis, trade, farming, the domestication of animals, why protein was important, and how the environment shapes the way we live. Depending on the location of a society they may or may not be restricted to trade. If you look at Chinese societies they were able to trade and communicate with other societies through the silk roads.
World State vs. United States The novel Brave New World written by Aldous Huxley in a futuristic time where the strong hold of the world is the London, which is renamed the World State.

This committee discussed issues that Utopia faced and other political matters. In a Machiavellian society, there was the supreme prince and his advisors. Although the advisors gave their opinion on matters at hand, the ultimate decision was left to the prince because the prince had trained his people to obey him over any advisor or other official. Utopia differed from a Machiavellian state in the society in which the people lived. All Utopians were thoroughly educated before they committed fulltime to agriculture.
There are many similarities between all three but there are also many differences. The first country I am going to discuss is El Salvador. Their constitution was ratified December 20th, 1983 and it is a more modern constitution than our own. In their constitution they state that their country is a republican, democratic and representative and that their political system is pluralist with political parties much like our own country. They have three branches of government – legislative, executive and judicial.
