We need to change the black community before we end ourselves by our own hands, by stereotype and the foolishness that we set for ourselves and the only way to fix this is to stop taking shortcuts. Do you know how many black people died by another black man? About 93% of blacks are killed in a black on black over something ignorant. By killing ourselves like this you’re letting someone like the KKK win, they didn’t even have to lift a finger to do harm. Real life example of this is a black man here in Atlanta, that killed his own son for drawing on his new Jordans. The logical solution to this was to take nail polish remover and a wet cloth and clean it. Without thinking first he ended his own son’s life and now in police custody, but if he thought about it, his son might have lived to be successful and bought him all the shoes he wanted.
When given the choice to interpret a situation externally or internally, which is the valid choice? In C. S. Lewis’s essay, “Meditation in a Toolshed”, he describes the two different points of view when forming an opinion. These two viewpoints consist of “looking at” and “looking along.” The former involves an external and detached understanding, while the latter describes a personal, internal, and attached experience. Is one of these options consistently inferior to the other? C. S. Lewis answers these questions and more as he uses structure and devices to explain this complex idea and allows his reader to incorporate this belief into their relationship with the Christian God.
“South Carolina’s poverty rate is ninth highest in the nation, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s annual American Community Survey.” It is a circumstance in which most South Carolinians’ live, and many of them not by choice. Thus, what does poverty look like? Poverty is working hard and yet still struggling to make ends meet. Poverty is working a full time, year-round minimum-wage job, but many South Carolinians are unable to feed, house, clothe, and educate their children. Poverty is too many South Carolina children going to school or bed hungry. Poverty is not knowing where their next meal is coming. Poverty is real! As Christians, we are the body of Christ, and have been called to love more than ourselves as we work together to achieve
It is an honor for me to be invited to join such an exclusive society of distinguished people.

Worldview is a word used to describe the way you perceive life, or things around you. We all have different worldview in regards to our traditions and personal experiences they all come from the way we are all brought up to believes. In all-purpose our worldview is what we practice to understand life around us. It a belief that people acknowledge and surround themselves with.
A biblical worldview will effect everything I do in my life. One of the most important things is the way we treat and interact with others. It start with the way we think about others, if we know them or not we should see them through the eye of compassion. We must be careful not to judge people because of what we know or don 't know about them. How you speak and treat them will determine if you will ever be able to help them or not. You may have the right message for them but without the right method of love and compassion they may never receive it. When it come to politics and voting in elections your worldview will be what helps make these decisions for you. Using your morals and beliefs formed by your worldview will ensure you can vote with
Many of us have thought about life after death. What happens to us after we die? Where do we go? What happens to our body? Do we go to heaven? Do we go to hell? Does our spirit live on? Does our soul find a different person? Many questions can arise from the thought of immortality. For those who believe in life after death, those beliefs may differ greatly. William Rowe’s article Life After Death focuses on the various beliefs of immortality and the problems with those beliefs. In researching William Rowe, the author of the article I chose, I found that he was a professor of philosophy at Purdue University. Rowe converted from Christian to an atheist. I found it interesting that he chose this conversion because of the fact that
W. Wallace Smith presented Doctrine and Covenants Section 150 in the midst of some unique challenges to the church. Richard Howard reminded us that the 1960s and early 1970s was filled with mistrust of church leadership. W. Wallace Smith provided this revelation in 1972 seeking to address these challenges and boldly reminded the church to “get along.” This revelation touched upon a variety of issues; leadership responsibilities, relationships, stewardship, education and training, monogamy, unity and differences. I think apostle Charles Neff described the attitude that the variety of aspects reminds us of, no matter what boundaries or differences we might face, we must never sense to find ways to teach. We must allow God’s grace to realize
There is nothing wrong with being a business owner. In fact, it is really an opportunity to
“Treat others like you would want to be treated.”That’s the Golden Rule. If everyone followed it, and tried to understand others instead of judging them, life would be more positive. Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird shows the negativity judging others causes, but more importantly, shows that when people decide to put their judgements aside about others, and try to see their point of view, life becomes better. People’s point of views should be looked at before judging.
Briana Kuykendall spoke at the symposium on Friday on the book, The Transforming Vision. She gave a detailed summary of what exactly the book was about and went into depth about some of the major key points talked about in the book. The first thing she did was define what a worldview is and what it is not. Worldviews are not systems of thought like theologies or philosophies; instead, they are perceptual frameworks and directors of life. They are people’s way of seeing or understanding life itself. She then went on to talk about the four basic worldview questions: Who are we? Where are we? What went wrong? What is the remedy? Furthermore, she talked about how someone with a correct Biblical worldview would answer the questions. Briana said
The Creationist model explains the living world through the theory it was created by a supernatural deity. This theory originates from the Jewish holy book, the Torah which states that the world is approximately 6000 years old and that all existing species were created and there has been no change from one species to another.
Nazareth’s coursework tests the individual to think critically and to broaden their viewpoints. With courses in religious studies, philosophy, mathematics, and science, to name a few, I was able to achieve this goal. What I noticed most about myself in this short timespan at Nazareth is that differences are essential to a happy world. Before coming to college, I had a terribly narrow view of the world. For most situations, it was my way or the highway. I often thought other’s opinions did not matter as much as mine, but interactions with other students in both academic and social life gradually changed this perception. Now I am able to accept new viewpoints and learn from others. As a teacher, I use this information to learn from my
This perspective has convinced me that I can be used to biblically counseling others. To disciple new Christians, encourage friends and neighbors, and lead the lost to Christ. To be a small part of God’s plan to redeem a lost and dying world by pointing people to the cross and introducing them to Jesus is transforming. As a biblical counselor, I am hungry for not only seeing the lives of others transformed, but to continue to have the Lord continue to transform
The Big Bang Theory, It is very mysterious yet ominous when the universe ends with one big bang (emphasis added). There are many people like tribal, philosopher, religious thinkers, and scientists have many questions that many of us are pondering about the universe. Through scientific research, it has given us several viewpoints and has brought to us a thorough explanation of what truly happened in terms of studying the universe and how they come to part.
