• The Bible As History
    2,355 words
    The Bible as History The question of whether the Holy Bible is an actual historical account of what happened since the beginning of humanity, or merely stories that man has come up with over time has long been considered. Many choose to believe the Bible literally and take everything word for word. Others believe the stories in the Bible are a way of showing God's love for us, but think of them as stories and lessons on how to follow the "way of God." Others think the stories in the Bible are fa...

    1. Is Galileo's argument based on science or theology Galileo's argument is based on theology because that was what was mostly mentioned and that the science and the Bible were not contradicting each other. He always seems to compare science to the Bible and its Words because they were compatible. Galileo said, " But I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who had endowed us with senses, reason, and intellect has intended to forgo their use and by some other means to give us knowledge...

  • Biblical Exegesis Bible Criticism Text
    1,454 words
    First I will give you a background of exegesis. Webster's New World Dictionary (1990), defines exegesis as, the interpretation of a word, passage, etc. , esp. in the Bible. This definition is a worldly. To understand the true meaning and background I looked in John H. Hays book called, Biblical Exegesis, for the answer. He says that the term 'exegesis' itself comes from the Greek word which basically meant ' to lead out of.' When applied to texts, it denoted the ' reading out' of the meaning. T...
  • Bible Word Of God

    If the Bible is indeed the Word of God, perfect and without error, then the issue is settled. Homosexuality is a sin and we must condemn it's practice. However, if the Bible is the writings of men who were only capable of seeing dimly, as if in a mirror, the way Paul described it, then we have a long way to go before we settle the question. John's teaching concerning the third person of the trinity, God's Holy Spirit, has that person leading us into truth, and not a book... even if that book is...

    The Bible and the Word 'Inspire " According to the Random House Dictionary, the word inspire means 'to infuse an animating, quickening, or exalting influence into, or to communicate or suggest by a divine influence.' This definition indicates, when applied to the scripture, that the stories and writings in the Bible did not come solely from the minds of the respective authors, but rather from a divine source. This suggests that the authors were scribes, reproducing what was instilled in them by ...

    of God the moral way through The Bible. The Koran is a book that tries to guide believers in the right direction, because they decided that the Jews and Christians disobeyed God's commandments by dividing themselves into sects. In result, they tried to differentiate themselves by learning their true religion of Islam, absolute submission. By reading more and more of the Holy Bible and the Koran I have seen mostly similarities which was not the goal of the Koran. One of the largest similarities b...

    Refutation to a Bias Suggestion 'Some people suggest that the Bible, being a collection of texts written long ago by persons much different from ourselves, does not have much (or any) significance for modern people.' The suggestion that the Bible is invalid simply due to its authors and era is absurd and bias. This statement is supported by God and all modern day believers. Almost any Christian you confront with this statement would most likely give you a blank stare. However, it is mainly non- ...

    Margery Kempe: Holy roller or Evil doer Upon reading, and re-reading, Margery Kempe, I realized just how much this text refers to the Bible. The first thing that I noticed was on pg. 299, "she was laboured with great accesses, till the child was born." I think that it is safe to say that this passage was written with the Bible in mind. Specifically Genesis 3: 16 and "To the woman he said: I shall give you great labour in child bearing." Given this image from the Bible so early in the text, I was...

    Galileo vs. The Bible Religion and science have always been conflicting studies. Religion, being based on faith, relies on the supernatural to explain life and being. Science, on the other hand, cannot do this. Scientists need to eliminate the possibility of the unexplainable in order to maintain and control group by which to measure other groups. The unexplainable I refer to are the miracles that are commonplace in all supernatural religions. Galileo lived in a time where church was state. The...

    Galileo took one of the first steps leading toward the death of biblical belief of the universe by mounting a systematic challenge to the biblical notion that the earth was the center of the universe. The centrality of Earth had long been associated with the beliefs of Aristotle and Ptolemy that had been adopted as the official teaching of the church. Aristotle and Ptolemy believed that the Earth was immovable and was orbited by concentric spheres in which the various planets and stars were root...
