Religion in a Secular campus. In “Chicken Soup Effect”; by Gibbison,Henry,& Perkins-Brown (2001), the article talked about how recreational activities contribute the everyday life of a student, especially in their studies/educational life. In order to know more about how spiritual recreation effects on school performance, I interviewed Jimmy Flores, a second year NPB Pre-Med major that practice the Christian denomination of Catholicism who is also one of the most hard working person I’ve ever met in college. For him, practicing spiritual activities isn’t just about going to church and pay, but also reading and studying the bible, going to communion activities and also having special diet which called lent that limit their craving and bodily desires. Since Jimmy Flores is
He testified on many occasions that his faith in Jesus was the only mechanism by which he could pursue and perform the art of science. Carver became a Christian when he was still a young boy, as he wrote in connection to his conversion in 1931.He was not expected to live past his twenty-first birthday due to failing health. Throughout his career, he always found friendship with other Christians. He relied on them especially when criticized by the scientific community and media regarding his research methodology. Carver viewed faith in Jesus Christ as a means of destroying both barriers of racial disharmony and social stratification.
Many people have given their lives to further the growth of the Church throughout the world and indeed many have admitted that even if God Himself were to visit them and suggest Joseph Smith was not really His messenger, they would not believe him, but would rather believe in Joseph Smith. This type of fanatical belief is indicative of how this belief has grown and perhaps that it may well be considered in the realm of “cultism” as well as simple religion? This type of fanatical belief is not limited to the Mormon Church. Indeed you find it in the Catholic Church and many of the southern Baptist churches and other protestant faiths throughout the world and certainly in the Moslem religion. It would seem it is indicative of the human race.
Jr learned music from the church when he was young so he became a member of junior choir in his church. As a Christian minister King’s main influence was Jesus Christ, he always gave the speeches at the church. Gandhi and King believed that God are always there by their
Several Sunday mornings ago, a local church had a missionary as a guest speaker, and his speech appealed to the congregation through his incorporation of ethos, logos, and pathos. The missionary began his speech by stating that he had originally planned to become a pastor after graduating from seminary, but after receiving his degree he felt led to use his skills to assist the less fortunate. He soon joined an organization and has spent the past eight years in Latin America helping others while teaching Christianity. In the previous statement, the missionary attempted to appeal to the congregation through ethos. He discussed seminary school and his missionary experience in order to establish credibility as a trustworthy man of God.
Mayzie learns that fame and fortune is not everything and that family and friends are important in our lives. The same can be said about God. All of these material things that we think we need to survive we really do not need because nothing replaces God, family, and friends. We are all children of God and he is who we put our faith in to help guide us along the way. As christians we know that God is always with us but sometime we can still forget that fact because we get distracted.
His education was incredible. God knew that he was going to be a great reformer and gave him this education so that he could use it to inform others about Christ. Significantly, Calvin’s reform work stands out the most. If he had not helped reform the Christian religion, many of us would not be true believing Christians like we are now. Living the amazing life of a true believer, Calvin gave us many examples to trustingly live by.
Lavar wanted to be called Cedric, however, after his father. He began to get good grades and praise from his teachers. At church he became a soloist in the choir and was featured on TV. Barbara was proud and paid her tithe willingly to the church believing it was helping Lavar survive. Little Lavar or Cedric was bussed to Jefferson Middle School for talented minority students.
I would say that I am both spiritual and religious. Being spiritual can be hard to understand at times and it can cause you to question yourself. I am a spiritual person because I believe in things that I can’t see such as angels. I am religious because I attend mass regularly and my faith is an important aspect in my life.
Catholic retreats, recollections, seminars, and outreach events became a part of our student life, apart from having religion classes three times a week. In short, I grew up actively practicing the Catholic faith, with Jesus as the center and the role model of my life. I grew up believing that God, our Almighty Father, is the most powerful Being behind the creation of the universe—all of his attributes and characteristics are beyond measure. I grew up not doubting the
