She guides in a way that shows the world 's approach, and Jesus ' approach and the effects both can have on the parent-child relationship and others. Dr. Whitehurst encourages parents to use Jesus ' teachings to guide them with certain principles that will influence their children and families in a positive way. She assures that parents will encounter temptations, but Jesus ' teachings can lead parents in a way to resist temptation and raise their children by Jesus 's approach and not the world 's approach. This method will help children become more receptive to Jesus and his messages through spiritual and character development. Dr. Whitehurst urges parents to learn more, so they can grow and share their insight with their children.
Eddie Cohen The first astronomers had a great influence on what we now know as modern Astronomy. A majority of astronomers made massive advances for their time. Ptomely, Nicolaus Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, and Galileo all were known for their advanced thinking. Their theories were so advanced for their time, that it typically got them in trouble with either the government or the church. One of the most influential astronomers and geographers of all time was Claudius Ptolemy.
Even though he didn’t invent the telescope, he was the first person to use the optical instrument to systematically study space. He also improved the telescope by learning about the device, and in the fall of 1609, he pointed it at the moon, and he discovered that it had craters and mountains. He invented an improved the telescope that let him observe the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the phases of Venus, sunspots, and lunar surface. He also found out that Jupiter had moons. His discoveries disturbed the catholic church, but he preserved through the consequences, and now is a famous person in history.
Williams was actually kicked out of the Massachusetts Bay Colony for these beliefs. Roger believed in what he called “Soul Liberty” which meant that liberty of conscience was necessary because no one could know for certain which form of religion was the true one God intended. Williams believed that everyone had the right to worship God how they saw fit. Also, he believed that no matter what religion you affiliated with; Quaker, Jew, Catholic, or some other religion, you had the right to think that way, whether he agreed or disagreed with it. Although, for example, he did not like the Puritan ways or beliefs he would tolerate the people who did.
In terms of the second part God commands these actions because they are right, this statement places morality separate from God, there is an independent standard of moral right and wrong that undermine the omnipotence and Omni benevolence of God (Leibniz, 1951). This point is also a response to the objection of the divine command theory, in making morality and God independent we ignore the greatness of God, who as the creator has the right to command and we are obligated to obey His commands (Rachels, 1969). Some other critiques of the divine command theory and its failure that have been brought up includes the pluralism objection which describes the matter of the number of religions practised around the world and the differing understandings and the possible misunderstandings that could arise due to conflicting views (Wierenga, 2009). Some moral theists argue that without religion there is no basis for morality, without God then everything including the unsavoury actions mentioned previously is
Dobson’s words can resonate with young and older Christians. The politically correct, liberals, or the Christian left may perceive his words to be ungracious and condemning; whereas, the word of God clearly dictates acts that are sinful and should not be tolerated (Galatians 5: 19-21). Dobson challenges Christians to stand up as Jesus did since truth by nature is intolerant of falsehood. If being intolerant means agreeing with condemning abhorrent behavior as God mandates in the scriptures (e.g., homosexuality, abortion, sexual perversion), then yes, it is okay to be intolerant. Tolerance is not encouraged in the Bible considering God is not tolerant; ergo, tolerance in itself is not loving, since tolerance denies justice (Kruger, 2013).
In “Same Love”, Macklemore is promoting gay rights. He also addresses issues contributing to the discrimination of gays. Also, Macklemore talks about how religion is generating hate towards homosexuals and that gay marriage should be accepted. He believes that all hate is the same just as all love is the same. Macklemore states that if all hate is the same then why can’t all love be the same?
He is viewed, as a result of the harsh times during which the Abrahamic religions were originally created, as a fundamentally human deity; both cruel and vengeful. As a result of their fear of God, many Orthodox Christians allow their worldview and the conclusions they reach to be outlined for them in the Bible. An example of their conclusions being determined by how they define the concept of God would be the modern debate regarding if homosexual marriage should be legalised. Orthodox Christians, in particular, believe that God is against homosexuality, as is outlined in the Bible, and would punish humanity should his will be disobeyed, so they believe it should not be legalised. These Orthodox Christians are, as a result of their perspective on knowledge, difficult to reconcile with modern technological, societal, and medical advancements, for example.
The freedom to choose is the most powerful freedom we have. For example, everyone might not have a religion but it is important to make sure people are not punished or discriminated against because of their religion. We can see religious injustice around the world, some faiths are hated and persecuted , some are even killed for their religious practices. This goes against our rights of being Americans, and it should not be tolerated, anywhere. According to the Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies of Princeton University, “Our country's founders -- who were of different religious backgrounds themselves -- knew the best way to protect religious liberty was to keep the government out of religion.
Issues like these may well be controversial, being based on an individual 's creed and principles. After researching for months about homosexuality, I came to a conclusion that the homosexuals should be treated no less than the heterosexuals. What the antagonists of homosexuality say are: it is unnatural; it is against the divine will of God, it runs counter to the tradition and more. Occasionally someone would bring up a "real" problem but most of the claims by the opposing side stand on the basis of a highly subjective valuation. As a result, they had to go to great lengths to expound on their position.
