  • My Faith Toward God
    1,550 words
    INTRODUCTION Quote from Literature Many people try to discredit what the Bible teaches, but my faith comes from God, through his word, The Holy Bible. Billy Graham wrote, "Because the Bible is God's inspired Word, it does not contradict itself or teach falsehoods-because God cannot lie.

Quote from an Authoritative Source It is comforting to know that t...

  • Jonah's Actions
    786 words
    The book of Jonah differs from the books of all the other prophets in that its only message was addressed to the people of a foreign nation.

What happened to man's free will of choice if God forced this mortal to behave in a certain way contrary to his own? One of the solutions to this apparent problem is addressed by Moses Maimonides. The core of his argument is that Pharaoh was not a blan...
