  • Dorian Gray's Good Looks
    5,166 words
    The studio was filled with the rich odour of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden, there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn. From the corner of the divan of Persian saddle-bags on which he was lying, smoking, as was his custom, innumerable cigarettes, Lord Henry Wotton could just catch the gleam of the honey-sweet and honey-coloured blossoms of a laburnum, whose tremulous branch...
  • Daniel The Book Of Daniel
    2,228 words
    Daniel The book of Daniel has always been a kind of guide and an example for me to use throughout my whole life. I learned about the Bible stories in Daniel when I was very little and I always loved them. They taught me what faith is and how it comes to us in an understandable way. Stories like, "Daniel and the Lions' Den" and "The Three Men in the Fiery Furnace" first taught me what God's word is all about. No matter what age you are, the Bible stories in Daniel will give you a sense of comfort...
  • Voice Of God Without The Rejection
    6,533 words
    O JERUSALEM, JERUSALEM 37 'O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! 38 'See! Your house is left to you desolate; 39 'for I say to you, you shall see Me no more till you say, 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' ' (Matthew 23: 37-39) Jerusalem in the Scriptures is symbolic of the Church in general. The word 'J...
  • Suffering The Book Of Job 1
    954 words
    Book of Job: Suffering The book of Job 1: 3, in The New Oxford Annotated Bible, states 'Job was the greatest man among all in the East. ' He was a faithful servant of God, he owned thousands of animals, and had many servants and friends. Job had a very large family with seven sons and three daughters. Why was Job chosen to suffer and receive punishment at the hands of the Lord one may ask? The major themes in the book describe the ways Job deals with suffering and despair the Lord handed him. Ho...
  • Prophets Jeremiah And Ezekiel
    1,654 words
    God inspired the prophets to tell the people what they needed to know and do in order to follow His will.

In chapter 25 of Jeremiah, Jeremiah is inspired to go out to the people of Judah. The prophets had told the people of Judah earlier, "Turn now, each of you, from your evil ways... and you can stay in the land... ...

  • Lord's Supper And The Kingdom Of God
    4,479 words
    Introduction I think that no doctrine inside Christianity was as arguably and problematic as the doctrine of the Lord's Supper (Eucharistic). Not only that century-old fighting's is going on around the text: 'This is my body' (1. Cor. 11: 24) between Roman Catholics and Protestants, but there is nonconformity regarding the question among Protestants themselves. The first notification of the Lord's Supper set a division among Christ's disciples, as they were shocked when Christ told them about th...
  • Yhwh And Israel
    1,629 words
    Exegetical Paper: Amos 9: 5-10 -I will be examining Amos 9: 5-10 The message that the author is trying to convey in Amos 9: 5-10 is that YHWH has proven himself to the people to be a trustworthy and loyal God. He helped resurrect Israel, the Philistines and the Ara means. In turn these people, particularly the Israelites, have betrayed his trust by acting sinfully toward the kingdom of Israel. The Lord YHWH will judge those people of Israel who are called to do right but who choose to do wrong. ...
  • Pro Life
    561 words
    The reason I am pro-life, and oppose abortion, is because GOD is pro-life, and opposes abortion. Scriptural evidence of this is abundant; consider the words of Ps. 139: 13-14: 'For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. ' God then forbids the taking of innocent life [viz. a life not guilty of a capital crime, according to the law of God]. This is eviden...
  • Obadiah's Oracle Against Edom
    1,503 words
    OBADIAH Judgement is pronounced. Obadiah's oracle against Edom as sentenced by Yahweh Himself is severe and without hope for future restoration of this people. Edom's crime and reason for judgement is explained by Obadiah in this sense, ! SS you stood by on the day of your brother's captivity; and rejoiced over the children of Judah in the day of their destruction. !" Edom has displeased God by their consistent violence and hatred for their brother Jacob. Now Yahweh's judgement is passed, and th...
  • 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 ...

  • Thinks Lord Henry
    763 words
    People give suggestions and people are suggested to do something everyday. But do we pay enough attention to these suggestions, and do we need to pay attention to them at all? Lets say a twenty year-old man has an opportunity to move to United States. He will hear hundreds of suggestions from should he go or should he stay to what he should take with him.

  • Power Of God 1 Corinthians 2
    2,634 words
    The Bible Teaches many truths about itself. 1. It claims God as its author All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. - 2 Timothy 3: 16 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. -2 Peter 1: 20-21 2. It claims that it is inner ant and infallible The la...
  • Lord God
    415 words
    Amos, disgusted with the beautiful ivories, the luxurious summer and winter homes, the impressive fortifications, and the teeming marketplaces, proclaimed that Yahweh too loathed the whole spectacle. (Anderson, pg. 258) The Lord God demanded obedience to him through the law that the people of Israel were ignorant to. You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities. (Amos 3: 2) The Israelite society became so focused on material prosperi...

    591 words
    People have been asking this question for centuries, and they have come up with a couple of different answers. I believe that a person is saved through faith and prayer. If you truly believe that god is your savor and you have the faith to trust in him and believe what the bible tells you then you should be saved. In Isa. 61: 10 It says, I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe o...
