  • The Anti-Christ Book Report

    have read a few books on eschatology/prophecy (study of the last things). Many describe The Antichrist as a mastermind without differentiating between a mastery that stems from wisdom and understanding, and a “cunning” that proceeds from craftiness and wickedness. They are not the same. The latter is a mastery of foolishness. The Antichrist is anti-Christ. Although in appearances, he may try to imitate him, in reality, he is everything Christ is “not”. Where does wisdom come from, if not from God? James 1:5 says, “If any lack wisdom, let them ask of God.” Where does wisdom start, if not with the fear of the Lord? Psalm 111:10 says, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Who is it that personifies wisdom, if…

  • Womanhood In The Bible Essay

    In the first book of the Bible, Genesis, God created both male and female in His own image (Genesis 1:27). With both man and woman being made in the image of God, both are in equal standing before God; yet, within their equal standing, men and women have different roles. The different roles were created to be complementary, meaning, the roles that God created for men and women are in perfect balance of each other (Genesis 2:23). The complementary role that God created for women includes, but is…

  • Ecclesiastes Chapter 2 Analysis

    Ecclesiastes 1:1 states that this book contains “the words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.” For this reason, it is traditionally believed to have been written by King Solomon around the year 935 B.C.E. King Solomon was the son of David, who was known for his wisdom and his writings, as well as his wealth. In chapter 2, verses 4-9 mention great works he built as well as treasures he owned, also leading to the belief that Solomon is the author. Not all Biblical scholars…

    “Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.

  • 'Ecclesiastes Says Everything Is Worthless'

    Ecclesiastes is often thought of as “the book that says everything is pointless”. This is true, to some extent. The book covers almost all other the reasons people have found for living and explains, in detail, why it is not worth pursuing. Everything is a cycle and if you follow it you will only end up doing the same thing over and over again with no real sense of happiness or purpose. The one exception to this and the one thing that can give meaning and happiness to everything else is God and…

  • Christian Wisdom

    Wisdom is of great value to the Christian. Wisdom is not a level that can be attained; it is something that should be sought and strived for throughout a person’s life. God is very clear in His Word that He desires every Christian to gain wisdom. It’s through wisdom that a person can come to know God and grow closer to Him. Wisdom allows one to know more about God, His commands, and His will. Therefore, God speaks expressly in the Bible about the need for wisdom! Proverbs 4:7 states: “Wisdom is…

  • The Book Of Job And Ecclesiastes

    The book of Job and Ecclesiastes are written from two different points of view, but still have some of the same underlying messages in the text. Job is the signature character in the book of Job and his life is put on display for the reader. This story about suffering, faith, and trials raises a big question for the reader to discover and interpret, why would the Lord make his chosen people suffer again and again and not step in to stop the actions? The book of Job also makes the reader try to…

  • Book Of Ecclesiastes Vs. Proverbs

    Throughout the book of Ecclesiastes, there are many claims that are made about life, its meaning, and how it should be lived. One of the main claims can be summarized by saying that “the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the breath returns to God who gave it” (Ecclesiastes 12.7). The author expresses through this verse that Yahweh is in control of all circumstances of life for every individual; It can be seen as a cycle as He has the power to both give and take life. This idea connects…
