3:16-17). Baxter correctly highlighted the primary duty of minister in correcting those disobedience or rebellious flock – “To bring your people to submit to this course of private catechizing or instruction; for, if they will not come to you, or allow you to come to them, what good can they receive?” However, when we look at today’s congregation, especially old believers, their mindset had changed – though at the beginning of salvation, they humbly followed all the minister’s instructions diligently for their soul’s healing, but after sometimes, they hardened their heart to any kind of pastoral treatment as though they are superior than their shepherd. They will not come to us and will not allow us to come to
His mother, acting like a citizen, brought up the topic many times to the council members, acting like the government, which responded to her priority and brought her son back. Chapter 2: As a Christian community, the founders of JPUSA created the rules of the community based on the Bible and the teachings of Jesus, such as what is a sin. Much alike, the father of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, got many ideas from John Locke’s writings, such as natural rights and equality, and these principles as a base to the Declaration. Chapter 2: Whenever someone wanted to leave JPUSA, the leadership would put up a fight and make it very difficult to leave. This is similar to when the United States wanted to break off ties with Great Britain.
One example is Judge Taylor learning the lesson of tolerance during the trial. However, many important lessons are learned by Jem and Scout.

First, the children begin to learn the lesson of tolerance, or not being prejudiced, from Calpurnia when they are taken to church.
Just as typical priest would do, these religious authorities disclose everything that has been read during any eucharist. Moreover, Jesus Christ, the most important figure within Christianism, addresses each lesson or advice with the usage of a parable. Indeed, this allegory, has somewhat characteristics of a modern religious parable. This section displays an introduction to the speaker´s lament about the life he has chosen. Consequently, this homily-type poem, makes the allegory´s performance apt in the mind of the reader since it provides a suitable idiom, imagery and sensory images to plot themselves on the picture.
Whether directing a choir, directing a musical or teaching college level courses, my desire is to educate those who have entrusted their education into my hands. Serving in different areas of ministry, my philosophy was always to educate others. As a funeral director, I had the opportunity to help guide families through one of the most difficult times. I could have continued serving in the capacity; however, I wanted people everywhere to experience a first class funeral director. As a result, I began my journey as a funeral service education instructor.
My grandma said that, but she also included that kids in the Church are “freer to express their feelings and faith” (Personal Interview). When she was a child, they memorized creeds and catechisms that they would recite to explain their faith. Now, we teach students at a young age how to individualize their faith and express that. Morrie seemingly doesn’t have a strong opinion either way. He does mention that everyone is respectable until threatened, “and that’s what our culture does.
Bernarda Alba’s devotion to Christianity makes her obsess with her daughters’ purity and reputation. Their entire life is molded to fit the Christian traditions, such as virginal chastity and marriage. The text analyses Bernarda’s motives and provides a logical explanation of her rules. It also examines symbolism in the play, allowing the reader to have a deeper understanding of how every detail plays a significant role. The essay dives into Bernarda’s beliefs and provides the root of her traditional views.
In Amish Society, the author describes it as, “baptism signifies repentance, total commitment to the believing church-community, and admission to adulthood.” (Hostetler 77) During this period of choice, the youth go through a period known as Rumspringa, which is a critical phase in their decision to become baptized and join the Amish faith. The book, The Amish goes on to describe, “[Rumpspringa] is a psychological journey in self-understanding, a search for identity that fits within the contours of Amish society.” (Kraybill 225). During this time, they are allowed to experience what life is like away from the community. They have not yet claimed the Amish religion, therefore are not under the rule of the church yet. Despite this time away, most youth do make the choice to commit themselves the Amish faith.
I was very impressed and taken back that John would twirl each girl into the classroom, and would shake every boys hand. I thought that was brilliant because he is showing these little girls they are precious princesses, and teaching these boys young what respect is. His impressive interactions of the students gladly did not stop there. Every Thursday and Friday Joe does a segment called “Speak Life.” Joe was teaching his students phrases and a lifestyle from the Bible, without even telling his students. One day some of these students will get the opportunity to meet Christ and they will reflect on their music class in elementary school and realize Mr. Vercillino taught them the Bible before they even knew it.
She always believed in Jesus and had faith that he had a plan. Catherine prayed to the Holy Trinity all the time and mostly prayed for others. She even tended to Lepers and others that were sick because God told her to. St. Catherine had so much love for God that she had a divine marriage with him. I chose St. Catherine because her story was inspiring.
The desire to assist people as much as possible on their individual spiritual paths, with an emphasis on self-discovery is evident in the layout of the church. For instance, a room includes a large Chartres Labyrinth painted in a single path leading to a center and out again, such that people may symbolically walk the spiritual pilgrimage. The reflecting walk also serves to remind us of those who walked great distances hundreds of years past in honor of the teachings of Christ. The path walked is described as "movement is a body prayer through the architecture of the soul. As we move to the centre, healing, transformation and the divine can be known."
Langston Hughes used rhetoric words in his story “Salvation,” to provide foreshadows, and emotional appeals to his struggles in becoming religiously saved. Hughes began his story by stating “I was saved from sin when I was going on thirteen (179).” The irony in this opening is that Hughes initially believed in the presence of Jesus, but unexpected pressures pushed him to betray and deceive his faith. The setting of Hughes struggles took place in a religious ceremony in his Auntie Reed’s church. In this service, many young children like Hughes were gathered to be spiritually cleansed by the light of Jesus. Before the start of the service, Auntie Reed, and many church elders told Hughes that when Jesus spiritually exposes himself, he
