  • Catholic Church Observation

    I chose to attend Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church on November 13. We live in New Braunfels, and our religious options are very limited; we have Catholic churches and various types of Protestant churches.

  • Personal Narrative: My Visit To Redeemer Lutheran Church

    On October 30th, 2016 I attended Redeemer Lutheran church. I arrived there ten minutes early and picked a pew towards the back and started to take notes.

  • Genesis 3: 1-24 Analysis

    In Genesis 3: 1-24, it is implied that the first sin was caused by temptation. The devil, or Satan, made himself appear as a serpent in the Garden of Eden; he informed Eve that the only reason why God did not want both her and Adam to eat from the tree with the forbidden fruit was because the fruit contained knowledge that only God had at the time. This portion of the bible expresses sin as any act that defies God’s command; God has certain expectations and rules for us that he provides us with…

  • Analysis Of Silence By Shusak Endo

    Thesis: Through inculturation and different interpretations of Christianity, the church is catholic or universal. In order for the church to be catholic, it must be able to spread the Gospel with respect to cultural diversities. Culture is the beliefs, customs, and arts of a particular society. The Catholic faith is central to many of the world’s cultures. Yet, through inculturation, the Catholic faith is lived differently in each culture (classroom notes 10-13). In Shusaku Endo’s book,…
