All the above verses were mentioned, but there was a major one that hasnt been mention in chapter 1. "Like Martha i have always been agitated and troubled by the cares of the day but my mother had a serene and loving heart. She was like Mary and had chosen 'that good part. '" In Luke 10:38-42, it states that "Jesus Christ and his disciples stopped at the house of Martha in Bethany, about two miles from Jerusalem.

Jesus, that 's been a standing ' by you so, all this night! Who is he?" (Chapter 40, pg. 412) to scrutinize Christian houses of worship, especially the Presbyterian Church, also” ‘I’m your church now!’“(Chapter 31, pg. 336) for neglecting to denounce bondage in the North and
When the Bible clearly shows in numerous passages in the New Testament, with word for word examples, that God 's people were predestined, it 's no longer an argument. Human free-will is a topic of discussion that is taken slightly out of context. Free will means people are automatically choosing sin because it 's nature right from birth. Psalm 51:5 says “Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” All were born in sin and because of the fall it 's what people are most drawn towards. By the grace of God he captures the hearts of his people, by his choice.
This modern Bible- as researched by British historian David Reynolds- introduced a new religion of equality, acceptance, and love for everyone no matter skin color, age, or economic status (1). Uncle Tom’s Cabin reformed the meaning of Christian religion during a period when most modern and corrupt churches weren’t standing against slavery, and sometimes encouraged it (Reynolds 1). As revealed in avid Civil War historian, Lyle Cullen Sizer’s work, Stowe’s animosity towards slavery emerged from her belief that it was un- Christian and her duty to end it (35). Stowe grew increasingly upset with the religious’ response to the strengthening of the fugitive slave law (Sizer 35).

Being a christian this allowed Sojourner Truth to forgive those who beat and betrayed her as a slave in her later years. Sojourner mother Mau-Mau Bette told Sojourner as a child “ My children, there is a God, who hears and sees you”....” He lives in the sky, when you are beaten, or cruelly treated, or fall into trouble, you must ask him to help you, and he will always hear and help you. These instructions of her mother where treasured up and held sacred by
With a clear view of Calvin’s teachings about election, it will now be shown from select passages in the Thessalonian letters that Calvinistic election is false. There are two aspects to these letters that need to be investigated: historical and immediate context. Historically, the Thessalonian Christians were just beginning their walk with Christ when Paul was forced to leave them amid persecutions (Acts 17:1-10). He admired their endurance, but he still feared for their faith. His fear drove him to write these two letters so that he could comfort and encourage them (1 Thess.
After reading about St. Frances, and how God made her wait and how he was testing her, I know realize God was testing me too. He was testing my faith, how strong I could be, just as he did to her. St. Frances taught me to never give up on my faith. No matter what, she knew God would always be there for her, and now I too know that God will always be there for me. Saint Francis taught me something, but also helped me realize

I created my own narrative. For example, my ideas and perspective on race and religion are contributable to where I grew up and who I was surrounded by.
