In order to affect positive change in the country, the people need to rebel against the past and develop a new way of thinking. Baldwin argues that race relations cannot improve if one is consumed in a religion centered around the subjugation of others. Instead, the past needs to be accepted and moved on from and the future has to be centered around a new way of thinking which embraces change, support, and love from both black and white
Crusaders made the world what it is today. Malala Yousafzai and Barbara Johns, both teenage girls at the time, stood up for what was right by starting a crusade. “Malala The Powerful”, a biographical article by Kristin Lewis, has details on why Malala stood up for what was right. Lewis explains the want of education that Malala and other children had after it was pushed away from them. Similarly, Terri Kanefield shows the great inequality in black and white schools in “Imagine This Was Your School.”
The Oral Roberts Honor Code can be summarized as a set of rules that we as Christians should follow strictly. It tells us what is right and what is wrong in a Christian standpoint. The purpose of the honor code is for us students to sign off on a set of rules, and as a Christian or as a human being when you sign a document you must stay true to your word and follow what is on that document. It also sets a standard that ORU students need to act out, therefore setting us apart, putting ourselves on a different level than public universities.
Mark Jones analyzes Antinomianism with comparing to Reformed Theology. The main theological error of Antinomian’s thinking is that they put too much stress upon the doctrine of justification; furthermore, they interpret the rest of doctrines in Christianity from a biased perspective of justification. They even argue that good works are not significant for Christians because God does not see the sins of His children and does not anger to His children; therefore, the law is not important for Antinomians after the first coming of Christ. Regarding these problematic understanding, Jones suggests a solution for Antinomianism, that is concentrating on the real meaning of Christology; in other words, to rediscover and redefine the person and work
Her own sophisticated reactions and motivation additionally add to her significance as a role model for her children. Mary Logan is a typical mother who loves and cares for her family.

School bus transportation was not available for black schoolchildren in the South, and black education was always underfunded due to the lack of attention on the black schools. Parks recalled going to elementary school in Pine Level, where school
For me, all of them gave an example of how the leader is concerned about his people’s life. As a Christian, King Baldwin IV respects his religion so he also respects Muslims. He was struggling with his illness and still fight to protect his people. Balian of Ibelin makes a decision to ensure the safety his people and not to sacrifice more lives in the middle of war. In Kingdom of Heaven, Ridley Scott gives a new perspective of Muslims in Hollywood movie.
Richard Niebuhr struggled with this dilemma and examined how the Church historically has understood her relationship to culture. He gave his findings in a popular book titled Christ and Culture where discusses five basic ways Christians relate to culture. They are either (1) against culture, or (2) of culture, or (3) above culture, or (4) in tension with culture, or (5) transformers of
Analytical Perspective: Montgomery Bus Boycott Background Due to the Jim Crow laws enforced in many southern states, the bus system in many of these states were segregated, with the white passengers being able to sit at the front of the bus (and the majority of the bus). The ‘coloured’ passengers had to sit at the back of the bus, entering from a different door than that of the whites. This was especially true in the bus ring of Montgomery, Alabama. This was tiring for the black population who had to use the public transport to get to their jobs. Actual Events
To call out to the real God is to call out to Jesus Christ…but next time… “Don’t cut it so close!” Pray… “Jesus, I’m a sinner, who believes You paid the price for me at Calvary. Come into my heart and be my savior. Amen” Accepting Jesus as your Savior and being baptized in water in the name of…“The Father, Son and Holy Spirit”, will go a long way in getting and keeping you on the right track. Finding a good Bible based church and reading the Holy Bible can help with that.
Reverend Hudgins believed religion was only about keeping the soul pure for the sake of salvation, and this formed his opinions about black people, church, and preforming good deeds. Many people in the Civil Rights Movement were compelled to action because of religion. They thought there was a connection between the message of the gospel and their fight for equality. Other people felt that they were being called by God to protect their local area from the sins of the world, including people who were visiting for the sake of civil rights. Both of these forms of action were based on each group’s interpretation of Christianity.
He implores that, “Now, today, this moment, is our chance to choose the right side. God is holding back to give us that chance. It will not last forever. We must take it or leave it.” (Lewis, 65) Having read Book Two, we as readers now have the knowledge we need to know of God.

Not conforming to the modern events, and what society pressures us to believe. We cannot make Jesus into someone he is not, not making Jesus into a hippie, feminist, or superstar. To follow Jesus in America, we must love each and see Jesus for who he is to us. Following Jesus in America, where it is debated whether or not America is Christian or not, can be difficult based on the pressures of society, but also everyone will have their different beliefs/ways to follow
It was a time period where African Americans couldn’t be equal to a Caucasian. There were many signs that said “Whites Only” that were put up to keep the blacks separated from the Whites.
