    Despite a quite universal acceptance of life as precious and worthy of preservation, the debate over human life has raged on for many years and in many situations. Specifically, biblical views on life and the preservation of this gift have brought tension and attacks on the holistic views of Christ followers. Many Christ followers would argue that life comes at conception and this disallows such actions as abortion or negative treatment of a woman 's body especially during the time of pregnancy. I would argue that the life of person does not come at conception ultimately even though it biologically begins but exists in eternity past abiding within God 's plan. John 1:3 states that, "All things were made through him, and without him was not…

    Qohelet's Argument

    • 1124 Words
    • 5 Pages

    word “everything” in 3:11 continues the thought of “everything” in 3:1. The point of 3:11 is that God makes everything, even events that occur through human activity, happen in its proper time. This is similar to Jeremiah’s prayer, “Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own; it is not for them to direct their steps.” (Jeremiah 10:23) Yet the tension of this verse is that human don’t always understand God’s purposes. All morally perfect acts must by definition also be timely acts.…

    The future is something many of us think about but never never exactly know if it will turn out the way we want it too.

Most individuals do not know how they should look at their future selves.

    Weed Guy Research Paper

    • 544 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Around town I am known as the "Weed Guy." Now I know what some might think, but I am not referring to that type of weed. My business venture involves the removal of unwanted plants that infiltrate gardens not high schools. It all began the summer before my sophomore year in high school. I had run over to my aunt's house with my dog as part of my pre-season Cross Country training. As I completed my post-workout stretch, I listened to my aunt ramble on and on about her overgrown garden and…

    Everyman finally acknowledges God and cries out to Him to have mercy upon him. Everyman finally realizes that he cannot escape Death and he is going to leave this world. Yet Death still provides Everyman with an escape. Death hints that Everyman can still be saved regardless of his obsession with earthly things.

    Trump and Clinton are bad for America. But even if neither is elected, we will still need Jesus and his Gospel sweeping over us. It's not that I'm against Trump or Clinton. Maybe we could be friends. But I am eager for the integrity and true power of the Church. We don't need them to protect Christianity. That is Jesus' job, and has been for 2000 years. He's good at it. My hope is not in Trump losing but in my low-energy loser Savior who died at the hands of all the top people and then rose up…

    No matter what you do, it remains inevitable. In appointment in Samarra, the servant eludes death and in doing so, he hurries directly to it. Likewise, the presumptuous Physician strives to avoid death by supposing that his “relative,” Godfather will not execute him and that Death has the power to light a second candle, giving him a second chance at life, but the results are false and the Physician ends up dead. At the end of the stories, the Physician and the servant were dead, implying that…

    Why Does Evil Exist

    • 784 Words
    • 4 Pages

    aren’t necessary. “Hoping” to form new relationships is in itself evil because the only thing we should be hoping for is God’s forgiveness. Relationships tend to take up much of your time and energy. According to St. Augustine the only thing we should be focusing all our energy on is praying (Augustine, City of God). Hoping for anything that isn’t “God’s salvation” is evil. God is perfect, but humans are imperfect because we are not completely made from good. In other words, we are never…

    Futureville Analysis

    • 823 Words
    • 4 Pages

    Cramer, we learned a lot about the view of the future. Our view of the future is important because what we think about the future determines the way we decide to live our lives in the present. One idea about the future that we learned through Dr. Cramer’s teachings and Skye Jethani’s book, “Futureville”, is the myth that is so often taught in Christian society today, that our futures are only important if they are used in ministry. In Futureville, Jethani says, “We have adopted a vision of…

    We are continuously learning about the world around us, through school, and most importantly about ourselves. My mother always told me that you learning something new every day. I still use this saying to this day, and never can forget it since it is so true. The quote from Carham i think resonates with me really well with this fact. Although it is taking it in a different sense than we usually think about. Most people do not look through God’s work to try and find themselves. The quote to…
