The time period Paul described in Romans 1-8 was filled with decadence, depravity, and self-righteousness and can easily be viewed in today’s world. This is evident with the numerous “religions” and beliefs that appear on a regular basis similar to the Romans with all the pagan Gods of those conquered. Paul preached to the Romans about Christian life as it refers to their world view and actions. In particular, the world had strayed from the teachings of its creator and savior in regards to the natural world, human identity, human relationships, and culture amongst others. The Natural World In the context of biblical world view, the description of the natural world begins in the first lines of the Bible “In the beginning, God created the
After conquering the people, God warned the Israelites to be mindful in their well doing, that they dare turn to other gods, that would ignite His anger upon them (Deuteronomy 31;16-18). ‘Joshua is the book of Israel’s holy war. It describes how the Israelites took possession of Canaan as fulfillment of the promise that God had given centuries before to the patriarchs Abrahams, Isaac and Jacob. The name Joshua means “The Lord is Savior,” as he took hold of the leadership after Moses’s death. The book of Joshua is part of the primary history of the Hebrew Bible narrating the history of Israel from the creations of the world until the Babylonian exile.
Architecture was the first movement to emerge from the Gothic era. The very first building to display Gothic features was Saint Denis in Paris renovated by Abbot Suger. He wanted his church to be a physical representation of Jerusalem filled with light and colour, and so, in 1140, Suger started to renovate his church. He started by enlarging the ambulatory, which is a walkway behind the altar, and replaced the rounded arches from the Romanesque style with pointed, angular arches. However, the first truly gothic construction was the choir of the church, built in 1144.

Chanukah commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple in Jerusalem, where Jews had risen up against their Greek-Syrian oppressors in the Maccabean Revolt. Chanukah is a very important holiday in the Jewish religion and its origin is extremely important to the Jewish people.

To elaborate more on these two men, Edwards was the author of the well known sermon “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” which beliefs were established in the paragraph above. Opposite of Edwards, George Whitefield used his gentle voice to gather the colonists attention, and reportedly made listeners stream tears without saying a word . Whitefield preached of how helpless we all are and there is only one way to be saved, which was by the mighty God.
The first one, the tower of Bavel, tells the story of people determined to build a tower tall enough to reach God. God punished them by creating different languages that resulted in it being to hard to communicate with one another. This created diversity among people with different languages and creation of different nations. The second one is that Yaakov, one of our forefathers, 12 children each fathered a separate tribe. Throughout the Torah we become accustomed to the 12 separate tribes and the connection people had if they were from the same tribe; later in the Torah the Jews were described as one nation, but we shouldn’t forget that we were once separated into 12 tribes.
Mormonism: The Supposed Restoration of the True Church Mormonism is the highly controversial religious practice of the supposed restoration of the true church of the Christian God. Though the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has not been verified, it has led to Mormonism being called the “covenant of caring”, and fourteen million members giving their faith and time to their church, its beliefs and rituals, temples, and supposedly, God Himself (“Mormonism: What is Mormonism?”). Tentative History The main text of Latter-Day Saints, also commonly known as Mormons, begins with the story of Lehi. Lehi, an Israelite man, led his family to the Americas from the Middle East to escape the dangers of living there. His
The title page was the writing that Maroni wrote, and it stated” to [show] unto the remnant of the house of Israel what great things the Lord hath done for their fathers; ... and also to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that Jesus is the Christ, the eternal God, manifesting himself unto all nations." Much like the Bible the Book of Mormons is organized in small story and book in the book each with a name of a great leader. The Book of Mormons is basically in chronological order meaning that the earliest books are from the early periods, and the later books are from the later periods. The first book is set in Jerusalem in 600 BC. There are six books in what is considered the Small Plates of Nephi, and they are: The First Book of Nephi, The Second Book of Nephi, the Book of Jacob, the Book of Enos, the Book of Jarom, and the Book of Omni.
