- Premarital Counseling and Its Effects on the Longevity of a Marraige (new)
In the United States of America, less than 50 percent of marriages are considered to be successful marriages; which means that more than half of them fail. (Phillips, Willmoth, & Marks, 2012) Not to mention, close to 60 percent of those that fail do so within the first 5 years. (Dixon, 2009) The numbers are not may up; we have a seriously growing problem. The dwindling of our marriages result in a deteriorating of our families, and if the families flop our society fails. What can we do to protec...
- John\'s Letters (new)
John\'s first letter was written mainly due to the rise of Gnosticism in his day. Gnostics were teaching that knowledge was superior to virtue. They taught there was no resurrection, that only a select few could understand scripture, and that the incarnation of Christ was impossible. John wrote his letter to emphasize that the incarnation was real and out of concern for the spiritual welfare of the church. In the first chapter, John affirms that Jesus was the Son of God and the “Life.” The ev...
- matthews messianic expectations
The Covenant of Abraham or The Abrahamic Covenant is oftentimes spoken of in religious services during prayers and sermons. This covenant establishes Abraham and his descendants to reap not just material benefits throughout eternity; but much more, to include a relationship with God. Beginning with Genesis 12:1-3, the blessings to Abram are promised; from making him a great nation, to blessing his name and his offspring. The understanding of a covenant relationship is of paramount impor...

Comparison Christianity and Hinduism - What are the differences?
Hinduism is a religion with many beliefs and practices, so offering a comparison of Christianity and Hinduism is challenging. It would be doing Hinduism an injustice to reduce its theology and philosophies to a scope that would be required to truly offer a comparison with Christianity. However, there are some tenets to Hinduism that are universal to all Hindus.
The first difference between Hinduism and Christianity is that ...
"Christianity, if false, is of no importance, and if true, of infinite importance. The only thing it cannot be is moderately important" (C.S. Lewis). Christianity is a religion based on the life and teaching, in the New Testament, of Jesus. It is a type of religion that only believes in one God. People who follow this religion are called Christians. Most Christians believe that God is one eternal being who exists as three distinct, eternal, and indivisible persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Chr...
In previous history of the world "canon" signified properly, "a straight rod," or "a carpenter\'s rule." However in the early stages of Christian religion it was used with a slightly different meaning, denoting a standard of opinion and practice. Later it became a testing rule in art, logic, grammar, and ethics. Of course in modern days when we use the term “canon” we mean
-- the restriction of the number of books that compose the sacred volume. (The Canon of Truth) As such it was first u...

Topical Listing of the Hard Sayings of Jesus
I have tried to arrange the hard sayings according to similar topics. I am sure that I have not done an adequate job, and there are better ways to group the, so please feel free to suggest your own groupings. I encourage you to find a theme and then study and teach on the topics relative to that theme. I bought two copies of G.F. Bruce\'s book, so please let me know if you would like to borrow it. Please send me notes that you would like posted on th...
- Worldview Paper
Worldview is framework of by which a person views the world around him. In my description it is how you scoped the world with your eyes. One perspective is how you think it to be. It is how one filters the world. In descriptive phrase, “it is a set of assumptions, concepts, values, or practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality” (Webster Dictionary)
The question of origin breaks down for us how life began and where did mankind come from. The Bible gives us all that we need to answer t...

- Saint cecilia
Saint Cecilia is said to have heard heavenly music inside her heart when she was forced to marry the pagan, Valerian. A wealth of music, art and festivals in honor of St. Cecilia has grown from this little bit of information from her biography. She is the acclaimed patron saint of music, especially church music, as well as that of musicians, composers, instrument makers and poets. The name Cecilia means blind and so, although we don't know if she herself couldn't see, she is also the Catholic ...
- The Caste System
The Caste System
The institution of caste system, one of the basic pillars of the Hindu society can be considered as old as the Hindu society itself. But over the years, the institution has undergone a metamorphic change.
However there is a stupendous difference between the caste system prevalent and practiced then and now. The caste system is supposed to have a divine origin and sanction behind it. The caste stratification of the Indian society had its origin in the chaturvarna system. Accord...
Throughout the Middle Ages literacy rates were extremely low in Europe, and hand copied manuscripts were expensive. The Bible and many legal documents were written in Latin or Greek, which were becoming increasingly dead languages used only by the church. Moreover, the statute of Valencia and other statutes had made it illegal for anyone not authorized by the Church to have even the Latin and Greek versions of the of the Bible.
The laity therefore had to rely on the Church, government and power...
