  • Puritans Prosper
    1,575 words
    The Puritans Conflict Between Divine Approval and Prosperity You probably are not sensible of this; you find you are kept out of hell, but do not see the hand of God in it; but look at other things, as the good state of your bodily constitution, your care of your own life, the means you use for your own preservation.

  • Beliefs Of A God
    2,061 words
    God is an entity that exists everywhere in any way, shape, or form, as is the concept of a god that so many people have set in stone their beliefs; and is a false belief that can not possibly be true.

Also, the very definition of morals, which is a condemning factor that 'god' is based off of, blows the fish out of the water. So then, to a perfect being of all loving and compassionate understanding, optio...

  • Picture Paul

    In the recent years there has been a particular case that has brought the minds of Christians as well as non-believers alike to examine the importance of a person's life. Apart from the ongoing debate regarding abortion as a criminal act or a womanly right, there has been another issue that has been dormant in this nation that some would argue causes the same weight as that of abortion.
