Isn’t it amazing how two works of literature can be so different yet so similar. The way that two different authors with completely different writing styles can intertwine similar themes and symbols without even trying is simply astounding. In the two literary works of Paradise Lost and Beowulf, the authors explore the biblical analogies of the Creator, the Great Destroyer, and a Savior. The two works Paradise Lost and Beowulf are very different in that one is pagan and the other is Christian.
Throughout this book the author, Darrel R. Falk, argues from his personal journey as a professing evangelical Christian and biologist, that only science, and not scripture, can reveal the details of creation. In the first chapter, the author talks about how, when one is living with both science and religion; it is like trying to live in two worlds at once. Falk spoke about how he grew up in a church that taught a literal view of Genesis, but those in leadership were not equipped to answer his questions about contradictions between the Bible and the real world. For this reason, Faulk drifted away from Christianity towards a life studying biology. Eventually he
Creation Day 1 (Genesis 1:1-5) God created the heavens and the earth. “The heavens” refers to everything beyond the earth, outer space. The earth is made but not formed in any specific way, although water is present. God then speaks light into existence.

But in the three big monotheistic religions, they believe that it was God himself who created the universe. This is stated in the first book of the old testament, the book of Genesis. When we look at the differences between Hinduism and Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; we can see there are some major differences. Hinduism is a pantheistic and polytheistic religion where Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are all monotheistic religions. Judaism is the first religion to teach the monotheistic point of view.
The idea that secularism originates from Christianity depends extensively on how secularism is defined. Some define it as a place, conversation or attitude completely lacking in religious elements, or according to William Connolly in part seven of The Myth of Secularism, a separation and restriction of private faith and beliefs from public discussion. Others see it as all faiths and religions having equal status, and everyone is allowed to search out truth in their own way, which is more closely defined as pluralism and heavily embedded in relativism. In terms of no religious implication, Christianity, although not necessarily instituted as a religion, but as a way of life, still demands the constant living out of beliefs about of truth and
Undoubtedly, Christianity has suffered many fractures throughout the years. Denominations did not exist in the first century because everybody belonged to the same church, the church that was founded by Jesus Christ and his Apostles.

Sadly, there are some Christians denominations that they walk away from the Scripture making emphasis in worldly things and taking away biblical concepts as holiness, sanctification, repentance and many other biblical trues.
During the 18th Century the United States Constitution was written and the majority of the Founding Fathers were religiously associated with either Christianity or Deism. What greatly differed these two religions was that Christianity’s doctrine stated that God created the universe and actively is in control of it. On the other hand the Deists denied the Trinity and believed that God created the universe, and then left it to run it’s course. Aside from this, the Deists received their sense of God and morality from nature instead of the Bible. Deists can easily be identified by their church involvement, their participation in the ordinances or sacraments of their church, religious expressions, and what friends, family, and clergy said about that Founder’s faith.

Madeleine Thien’s “Simple Recipes” is not mainly about the father cooking food and his treatment towards his son, instead, the author uses food to symbolize the struggles her immigrated family experienced in Canada. While it is possible to only look at the narratives that food symbolizes, the idea is fully expressed when the father is compared with the food.

Yet, each food does represent different themes, but the food, fish, is the most intriguing because of the different environment
When looking at the culture of hip hop, one must delve into the history of the South Bronx and the notorious gang wars that emerged from the suffering wasteland. In the early 70s, gang violence ruled the streets of the South Bronx. With tensions high due to the lack of help from the government, violence was a common release of pent up frustration and anger.
