Roots Of Our Faith
Roots of Our Faith As Christians, why do we need the Old Testament when we have the New Testament? This is a question often asked in modern day Christianity. This is also the question which seems to provoke the writing of The Old Testament Roots of Our Faith, by Paul and Elizabeth Achtemeier. The Achtemeiers point out in their book that in modern day thinking we view God as a loving father (pg. 1-2), rather than the God of the Old Testament who seems to act in jealousy over his own power with t

Philosophy Originated From The Greek Language. It Is Made Up Of Two Wo
Philosophy originated from the Greek language. It is made up of two words: philein which means to love and sophia which means wisdom. There are three fundamental questions in the field of philosophy which are referred to as the Existential Concerns. What can I know?, What ought I to do?, What is the meaning of life and my place in the universe? These complex questions are discussed in the basic areas of philosophy. Epistemology is the theory of knowledge. The major question in this ar

On July 4, 1776 The United States Of America Declared Its Independence
On July 4, 1776 the United States of America declared its independence from its mother country Great Britain. This feeling of independence was one that the colonists had never felt before, and didn't want to lose. From 1776-1781 the new states disputed over how they would run their new country without losing to much of their own state's powers. Eventually they agreed on a government with little federal power called The Articles of Confederation. Even though the Articles of Confederation brought

However, the two are fundamentally different in their reason, their rise, progress, termination, and in the events that followed, even to the present. The American Revolution was not pr

The Aeneid was a very subjective poem; the praise of Augustus Caesar and the Roman empire clearly echoes Virgil's own beliefs. Many people have labeled the Aeneid as propaganda for the Roman empire, propaganda in Latin means things which

Pundits and editorial writers pounced on Newt Gingrich when he suggested, soon after the election, that Republicans in the House would take up a school prayer amendment after acting on the agenda outlined in the Contract With America. Most insisted the proposal was a major political blunder. But then most of them had previously decried the contract itself as a major political blunder, sure to lose votes for Republican candidates. The school prayer amendment is an excellent idea, but an ambitiou

Aristotle (b. 384 - d. 322 BC), was a Greek philosopher, logician, and scientist. Along with his teacher Plato, Aristotle is generally regarded as one of the most influential ancient thinkers in a number of philosophical fields, including political theory. Aristotle was born in Stagira in northern Greece, and his father was a court physician to the king of Macedon. As a young man he studied in Plato's Academy in Athens. After Plato's death he left Athens to conduct philosophical and biological

A truly democratic political system has certain characteristics which prove its legitimacy with their existence. One essential characteristic of a legitimate democracy is that it allows people to freely make choices without government intervention. Another necessary characteristic which legitimates government is that every vote must count equally: one v

Consequently, Luther was initially loyal to the papacy, and even after many theological conflicts, he attempted to bring about his reconciliation with the Church. But this was a paradox not to endure because in his later years, Luther waged a continual battle with the papacy. Luther was to become a prof
