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
Hamilton wrote out the qualifications of his ideal wife: "As to religion, a moderate streak will satisfy me. She must believe in god and In 177 hate a saint." (2005).

Have ever felt relieved when you worship God in truth and in spirit? Do you feel like a heavy load just fell off your chest? Well, that’s why worship is very valuable to Christians. It is a medium where we give all our troubles to God. He takes it, makes it all good, and then tells us what to do when we meet with him in worship.
Basic Christianity is a crucial foundation that must be deeply entrenched within the hearts and minds of believers. The essential and basic principles aid every Christian by showing and teaching them how great God’s love is for us. In John Stott’s Book, “Basic Christianity,” he reveals insight on what it is to be a Christian. He also dispels many erroneous teachings that have been brought into the Christian community. Stott states in the beginning of his book that many have held the assumption that God sits on His throne, aloof, distant, and unconcerned for our needs and problems (Stott, pg.
The play Everyman requires a Christian audience to be powerful and influential. The reason for that is because the play Everyman represents many of the Christian ideals, such as kindness, loyalty, and charity, which are shown within the Bible. The play begins with the Messenger’s speech. Within his speech, the Messenger says, “You think sin in the beginning full sweet, Which in the end causeth the soul to weep.” This quote incorporates the ideology of eternal suffering as well as the idea of people’s lives coming to an end.

Why is the Church a perfect place to meet other singles? She says, “My church family, the people with whom I live in covenant relationship, know the sound of my laughter and my joys, they know my personality and proclivities, they see me serve and sulk, they know my sins and fears.” This is to say that, the Church is like a family that knows everything about a person and what better reference for a relationship than the entire church In scripture the Church is seen in many lights. The Church is seen as a hospital for the sick; a refugee for the harmed.

Scripture calls the church to bear each other’s burdens and singleness falls into that category.
My dad is a pastor and came to America and had me due to being a Christian and having to study here. Freedom of Religion I live in a society that like Rome has religious freedom. Since I live in America I am allowed to go to church and practice my religion freely.

He ended chapters with the reminder that the Lord was coming back. Paul reminded the church, Christ’s advent signals hope and comfort for all believers, living and dead. The fact that Paul emphasized the Lord’s return to a young church ‘just getting up-and running’ should perhaps suggest the importance of teaching the doctrine of the Second Coming in a “practical way” so to lay a foundation for a mature Christian faith. After the arrival of the first Thessalonian letter, additional seeds of false doctrine were being sown among the church members, causing them to waver in their faith. Paul responded by writing a second Thessalonian letter and clarifying the doctrinal issues that were causing distress in the minds of the new believers.
They feel a certain way, then go to church and feel like they are individually spoken to, so in a way they feel a sense of relieve from their problems, and comfort for the awareness they feel they have about themselves.
