Short Assignment Three My picture is a photograph that I believe is meant to convince. The intended audience I believe is those of the Christian faith, especially the modern day “Cafeteria Catholics”. I say this because it would not be aimed at someone who simply does not believe, was not raised, or does not take part in the religion at all. However, it would not be aimed at someone who is strong in their beliefs. It is for many religious people in today society, who claim to believe, go to church on Christmas, but don 't really care.
They didn’t have to waste their money so as long as they had faith. Martin Luther didn’t believe that the ways of that Church weren’t right because they were making people believe that they were going to make it into heaven by buying something like a release ticket called an indulgence. Luther wanted people to know the truth and not get abused by these foul rules of the Catholic Church. He then printed them out and put them on the front doors on the Church superiors. This would have gotten nowhere without the work of the printer.
Certain people who were Deist believed that there was a God and that he created all life, but He was not involved in every little thing that transpired in their daily operations. The people were finally breaking away from the church and changing the views on
It’s like a revolving door; people come and go. The message of this book is how to develop a church that keeps people in the church (willfully) and closing the door. Not necessarily through a program or new things to keep people entertained but rather a simple method which best reflects the new testament way of doing things. Sermon-based small groups work because they are focused on linear programs and relationships. While spiritual growth is not linear it keeps the demand and expectation for everybody not too low or too high for both leaders and attendees.
Later, when she talks about “getting into town” (Erdrich 2), she just briefly mentions “went to church” (Erdrich 2) after throwing out all the vivid descriptions about how exciting she is for just going to town. According to this, she believes that going to church is not so worth mentioning as getting to town. It indicates that she doesn’t actually understand the reason and the importance of going to church, which means she is not really religious. On the other hand, Sister Leopolda, a Christian nun, does not know about the Native Americans’ religion, either. She regards the god in the Native Americans’ religion as “the Dark One” (Erdrich 4) and insists he is going to hurt Marie, so she always holds an oak pole to catch him.
For example, obi believes in “many wonderful ideas,” but has not had a lot of experience with people to kguide him in his work. The key difficulties that micheal has with the village are that the church wants to keep the path becasue it ias how we leave this world and go off to heaven. Micheal obi does not believe in this the cause of the problom is that he has too many ideas. The priest also tells him that the path is the way for people to come into the church to be baptised and to pray aswell as it is where they keep their dead people. And michael belives this to not be true
In the book Yanez describes the power of the church through the father Dionicio Maria Martinez, their strict action, energy, jealous of their responsibility and authority, indifferent, fussy and manic affects the lives of citizens. The book builds the power of the church has not changed between citizens and rarely does what the church really is based. The edge of the water book has a lot of attention for their courage to argue about the influence of the church on people. At that time speak ill of the church was a very great sacrilege by the power he had. The edge of the water did not have a big impact on your time was after their influence has grown in my village there is even a school and a monument in his honor.
Edwards and Henry two very different men in history remembered for different things offer different approaches to reasoning. Edwards’ appeal to reason is fear he uses fear to convert and encourage the people at his church to appease god and follow his teaching devoutly. Yet Henry’s appeal to reason is logic, freedom from oppression and fulfilling a religious duty to god. Henry’s approach considerably more civil and reasonable compared to Edward direct approach of instilling fear to keep people from sin. Henry’s approach is constructive in bringing people together to fight for a cause.
“But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.” (Joshua 24:15) People choose Christianity for many reasons. One reason may be due to the fact they were born into the religion, leaving them with no choice but to follow in the path of their ancestors. However, this was not the case for Dorothy Day. Unlike several Christians, Dorothy wasn’t born into a religious household.
A preacher should not be out riding a horse but should be in the church helping citizens and working with god. The monk is trading and getting items from people who are in need of their sins to be forgiven. This is a scam and is not what he is supposed to be
Question: Should a married gay couple be allowed to hold a position in the SDA church? If you got in trouble for not taking out the trash on are you going to do the same thing over and over again? A gay married couple should not be allowed to hold a position in the church. I do not think a gay married couple should be allowed to hold a position in the SDA church for three of the following reasons: when you hold a position in the SDA church you need to be someone of example. By being married they are not trying to fix there sin.
While we were doing announcements the pastor explained why we were given clappers. Every time we heard the word Hosanna, we had to clap and shake the clappers. After that was over, finally we got to the music. We usually sing three song consisting old hymns to modern songs but this Easter we sang mainly modern day songs. The first song was “Hosanna” by Hillsong.
They didn 't exactly have a clear background on what it was, they attended christian church regularly. Hmong didn’t convert to Christianity to learn the new religion, but to access the benefits that it with held. “Hmong is a member of the Miao-Yao (Hmong-Mien)” (Owens, 2007) their primary language they spoke in America was known as Hmoob Dawb “white Hmong” or Moob Leeg “ no english.” By attending church, they practiced english, known for “their desire for literacy..it offered a way out of poverty through education and literacy.” (Vayong, 1995) Although communicating effectively was one of their primary factors, of converting to christianity, it wasn 't the only one. They also wanted to gain an economic and social life. As in economics, weddings took much time and energy, since the parents were major part of the children 's wedding that lasted days, whereas christians, the pastor is mainly the one in charge and usually last a day or two.
I talked to my dad about my faith and he asked me where my faith stood. Because we don’t go to church, we don’t really talk about God unless it’s serious. And honestly, I didn’t know. I don’t know now. But I want to be closer and have a stronger faith.
With these views, they go door to door preaching and trying to convert people to their religion. This could be annoying if you have strong belief in another religion. There are many laws if you are a Jehovah Witness such as you can’t belong to an organized club for the purpose of communicating with non believers, say the pledge of allegiance, vote, play bingo, or sing any holiday songs. Many of the activities believers of other religions do every day. Following all these rules gives you a better chance to be apart of the 144,000 to go to Heaven.
