I believe a hero is someone who accepts everyone no matter what, does good even when no one is looking and is willing to broaden their views and not be self centered. Therefore, no, I do not think Kim davis is a hero because she discriminates a group of people because of her own religious views and she is a hypocrite. She says she does everything under God and the Bible but she has commited several sins herself! If Kim Davis wants to punish others because of how she interpreted the Bible, then she should punish herself first for commiting adultery and having four marriages and three divorces and more than one affair. An example would be this quote from the Bible: “...yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye.
The Lord needs a yielded vessel that will do the will of the Father and not their agenda. There is no need for you to prove yourself the Lord will validate. God has us in the business of winning souls. In fact, a study of the scriptures and researchers, citing them apparently at random and for various or a superficial intention is necessarily superficial, since time prevents you from testing them properly. Scriptural rambling can bring confusion to younger Christians because they are not equipped yet to follow.
Abstract Gay marriage is a frequent debate in our current society. A lot of people state that marriage is a sacred intuition that should not be harmed starting with the religious communities and also a part of the population. But the rise of many associations and movements that state clearly that homosexual couples should benefit from the same rights and same privileges as the heterosexual couple. In fact their union will not harm the institution of marriage because it is based on love and it is the only reason that should allow two human begins to commit to each other. The Right to Marry: Throughout history homosexuality has been treated differently depending on culture religion and historical context.
Theodore Roosevelt 1. According to Roosevelt, a person cannot be good if he does not go to church because he would be more inclined to look over the “colored supplemen of the newspaper.” Roosevelt believes that if someone does not go to church, he will not spend time to pray or do good works. 4. According to the writer, helping one’s neighbors is a good thing because the writer claims that helping one’s neighbors in turn, helps thyself. Helping one’s neighbors is a charitable action and by doing so, shows your faith in God.
The sight of the church ornamented with gold and jewels seemed unfair to the people. The church would often preach against greed which seemed hypocritical to the masses. This was considering the amount of great wealth displayed by the church. The church would also ask that relics not be offered by those who have committed sin, yet teach that no man can be named blameless. According to the Pardoner, “But whoso finds himself without such blame, he will come up and offer in God’s name” (2).
. it is hard doing certain things when you have kids and I also believe not everyone is meant to be a parent. All the reason explains in the reading about how people would like to focus on their careers, themselves, their spouses, their life. I disagree with the Bishop about married couple not having children, I think married couple who decide to be Childfree can also have a good marriage and be happy. I also do nothing that he should
We can observe this in the protestant Christian church since there is an increasing struggle to keep millennials in attendance. While some churches are pursuing and hoping to pull their millennials back in attendance, these young adults are satisfied worshipping on their own terms. Though millennials might be drawn away from the traditional church, studies show that they still claim to be spiritually active. Young adults themselves have claimed that the church is too judgemental, inauthentic, and shallow. They believe that they can be active in their community and spiritual without the traditional church.
The church’s unwillingness to involve themselves in the conversation and active efforts to cease AIDS’ increasing stake on lives, fails to live up to their roles as empathetic followers of Christ. However, much of this hesitance stems from the Bible’s direct claims that condemn homosexuality and those living in what the church deems a “sinful” life, whom God punishes with sickness, poverty, and ultimate suffering, as this only justifies this inactiveness. The church fails to save lives as much as it claims to save souls in an institution that historically prides itself in combatting oppression and restoring justice, especially from the African American church, although seeming to fail in restoring dignity. “If God’s relationship with humanity is persuasive, that characteristic should be the model for our own interpersonal relationships” because lives should not be lost from lack of intervention, resulting from the church’s condemnation of participating in intense and joyous activities, like sex and drug use, subjecting many of these followers to hypocrisy (Shelp and Sunderland 74). Sexually explicit education should have been enforced in a society where religious conservatism creates a barrier in combatting the spread of this disease, a disease like any other disease.
She begins her argument with an appeal to logic by stating that one does not need to be “Christian in order” to want to marry. Navratilova backs this up being questioning that atheists would not be “allowed to marry” otherwise. She outlines the fact that marriage is a “promise” to “love each other” and that we are denying homosexuals this gift love. Navratilova intends to make the audience see the illogic of saying that marriage is only a “religious celebration” meant for those who follow a faith. She continues her piece with another appeal to logic by proving that the Bible was “wrong” on previous “issues”.
You can also determine consequences whether they are good consequences or bad consequences. Why is it that people who are gay are seen as not knowing morals? It does say in the bible that a man shall not lie with another man, but it also says that God is the only one who can judge. People whom are gay should not be seen as if they do not have morals because being gay is not wrong. Wanting to marry the person you love is not wrong.
Conclusion In final, if I were judging Kim Davis for her actions ethical, I would say she is being unethical because she is not using Joseph Fletchers Christian Situation Ethics because she is not doing or seeing anyone with love. From Gods teaching he wants us all to love one another, well-being a devout Christian as she claims, she isn’t doing so. She is using hate and selfishness to worry about herself.

Hi Mahealani, Its good to learn, that the Presbyterian Church USA, approved same sex marriage. Its interesting that the Supreme Court ruling legalized same sex marriage in the United States, but questions are being raised how the decision will affect religious groups. Especially, those that remains opposed to allowing gay and lesbian couples to wed. Basically the court’s decision states that clergy and religious organizations are not obligated to perform same sex marriages. I hope in the future that more religions become more accepting for to all people that want to be married. Thanks for sharing a great post.
