  • Name Joshua
    2,174 words
    Joshua's personal history prepared him well as a leader for the great conquest. The conquest of Caanan began about 1405 B.C. Joshua's leadership of Israel covered about twenty-five years. Living near the end of Israel's oppression in Egypt, Joshua witnessed God's dreadful ten plague judgments, the first Passover, the miraculous Red Sea crossing, and the supernatural signs and judgments during Israel's wilderness journeys.

  • God For The Lord
    890 words
    For as long as I can remember, God is said to be a benevolent deity who oversees all the happenings of the world and mercifully forgives all of mankind for their sins. Most Christians, if asked, will say that "God is good" and more so, he is forgiving. The Puritan notions of hellfire and brimstone, and that God is vengeful have been replaced by sincere benevolence. This new age Christian idealism has its helpfulness in today's "misguided" society, but ultimately, as presented thus far in the Bib...
  • Thee For Thou Hast
    5,134 words
    But the old habits were still strong and he could not muster a full act of the whole will to strike them down. Then comes the scene in the Milanese garden which is an interesting parallel to Ponticianus's tory about the garden at Trees. The long struggle is recapitulated in a brief moment; his will struggles against and within itself. The trivial distraction of a child's voice, chanting, 'Tolle, lege,' precipitates the resolution of the conflict. There is a radical shift in mood and will, he tur...

    1,434 words
    God is the creator, sustainer, judge, and redeemer. However, the most important characteristic of God is love. Love is an admirable quality. Genesis is an account of God's magnificent creations. God saw that everything he created was good. The book of Genesis focuses on six persons and their families: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph. God blessed man and all of his creations. For a moment, God's creation was as He intended; paradise. Man sinned and God became unhappy, but he still p...
  • Lord And Aeneas
    1,186 words
    Favoritism and the Powers of the Gods In ancient times, people believed that their lives would be significantly better off if the gods favored them.

  • Job's Encounter With God
    2,880 words
    God's chosen examples. When God calls you must answer, my Baptist preacher bellows from his pulpit. Everyone has a purpose on this earth, but God has chosen a special few to help him carry out his divine plan, he continues. Countless Sunday mornings I spent listening to my pastor preaching about man's encounters with God. He explains the significance of the encounters to the people of antiquity and he even relates the encounters to our every day lives. If one has met with God and seen His glory ...
  • God Kills Some More Then The Lord
    6,395 words
    Murder in the Bible The act of murder is rampant in the Bible. In much of the Bible, especially the Old Testament, there are laws that command that people be killed for absurd reasons such as working on the Sabbath, being gay, cursing your parents, or not being a virgin on your wedding night. In addition to these crazy and immoral laws, there are plenty of examples of God's irrationality by his direct killing of many people for reasons that defy any rational explanation such as killing children ...

  • God Our Lord
    659 words
    Man is created to praise and reverence and serve God our Lord and by this means to save his soul. It is true, and it is an ideal decision for any person to follow. However, human beings are strange creatures, and from the very beginning, people disobeyed God instead of serving and praising Him, which is evident from the Biblical examples. God gave Adam and Eve a paradise to dwell in and the opportunity to manage it and all the animals there in, but even with all this, they werent content and vio...
  • God Experiments With His Servants
    699 words
    WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE Many people wonder why bad things happen to good people and the answer is quite simple. God wants to teach his servants one of his many lessons. In most cases, people tend not to learn any lessons if all they get is the good. On the other hand, if they experience some of the bad, on tends to learn an important life lesson. Most people learn from their mistakes and not from their fortunes. So the answer to the question is that God allows bad things to happe...
  • Fault In Moses And Their Lord
    728 words
    After the fifteenth day of the second month in the wilderness the people of Israel cursed Moses and Aaron for taking them away from the fleshpots of Egypt where they ate bread to the full, to this horrid wilderness to be killed with hunger. The Lord heard there murmurings and said to Moses that every morning he would rain bread, which the house of Israel called manna. If the people stored the manna it would breed worms and become foul, but for a while some mistrusting Israelites stored the manna...
  • Christianity Of Beowulf
    560 words
    Beowulf dates back to around the eighth century, during which Christianity was not a prevalent religion. As Magill states, whether the Christian elements are intrinsic or are interpolations by a tenth century monastic scribe is controversial. However, it remains obvious that the poem along with the society is full of Christian sentiments. The reader does not have to read far before he comes across the first reference made to God. It is in the prologue in which the story of Shild and the beginnin...
  • 18 For Adam And Eve The Lord
    2,819 words
    In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth 1 (Genesis 1: 1). As we look back in history we can see many beginnings, but the beginning referred to in this verse is a beginning that defies understanding to the extreme. We see one of the most amazing creations in this world in a newly born child, yet that creation pails in comparison to that of the creation on the world. Look around you and imagine nothing. Thats the way in was before the Lord gave us the first of many gifts that have b...
