    structure became sensible. Politically, the hierarchies of the church, military, and other authority discovered that their “power” is limited compared to the limitless power of the divine. The Church also became aware of itself as an institution to correct its wrongdoings and help the community genuinely. Today, the Christian Church believes that to be free from corruption of different foundations within our community is performed through the teachings of the sacred book, the Bible. To act justly and do onto others as you would like done to you are a couple of rules one should follow to be in accordance with the image of God.

    most popular. I had asked by Jewish friends what the best service to go to was, and they all recommended that the Saturday morning service versus the other two services (which were in the afternoon and the evening). During the morning service (which was referred to as Shakharit), I sat near the back, so I was able to observe the congregation. There appeared to be roughly about 200-300 people there that ranged in ethnicities, genders, and ages. The men wore a small hat on their heads. This week I…

    I have three times (it is now the fourth time) administered the Lord 's supper and urged this point, that the unconverted may not approach, and that the wicked must, according to our doctrine, be debarred.
