Though Calvin agreed with Luther in some respects, they had their differences. But before comparing him to Luther, one must look at the foundational beliefs of Calvin’s teachings. His teachings are perhaps best summarized by debaters following his death. Calvin’s fundamental beliefs, as defined by these debaters, follow the acronym TULIP. First, Calvin argues that man is doomed with total depravity because of the original sin committed by Adam and Eve.
The Protestant reformation in Ireland had little success due to a number of factors. The organisation of the Protestant reformers and a language barrier made it a great deal harder to convert such a devout Catholic country.”The Reformation in Ireland was supported by both legislation and by a Protestant ruling class. Yet, reason and persuasion, legislation and coercion, and the Established status of the Church of Ireland failed to win the hearts and minds of the majority of people on this island” . This essay will look at the Reformation itself, reasons the reformation failed in Ireland and when it was a failure. At the beginning of King Henry the 8th’s reign, Ireland was a Catholic country.
However, by the late 1520s King Henry VIII began inserting his power into Ireland due to the influence of Thomas Wolsey at first his power resulted in policy making. During this time many small wars broke out between Irish lords and England however Henry VIII’s authority did not grow aggressive until 1530s when he sent a 2,000 men army into Ireland to control the area around the Pale, since this was where the Kildare rebellion was taking place. By the end of the rebellion King Henry VIII took all of the Kildare’s land and killed the males, so the House of Kildare could no longer continue. Henry VIII no longer trusted the Irish Lords and began appointing English nobles. Soon after in 1536, King Henry VIII started a reformation parliament in Ireland, its main purpose was to enact an act of attainder against the Kildare House.
The First Crusade had clear messaging with a clear goal: the retaking of the Holy Land. Yet the Second and Third Crusades were called in response to two tragedies, the fall of Edessa and the defeat at the Battle of Hattin. Despite Bernard of Clairvaux preaching at a level comparable to Peter the Hermit, inspiring devotion to the Second Crusade was plainly more difficult than doing so for First Crusade because of the murkier goals of the undertaking. The decision to target Damascus rather than Edessa clouded the whole undertaking. And it certainly couldn’t have helped crusader morale when they arrived in the Holy Land to find a tangled political system in which Catholic principalities were allied with Muslim
Arnold and Beyer (2015) explain that Job deals “with undeserved suffering and the attendant problem of theodicy…[that is] the attempt to justify God’s ways in the world” (p. 270). Job and his friends hold a theology of retribution: blessings for obedience and curses for disobedience (Deuteronomy 28). Consequently, as they correctly believe that God is righteous and just, Job’s friends blame Job himself for his sufferings. Elihu summarizes their beliefs, “It is unthinkable that God would do wrong, that the Almighty would pervert justice. He repays a man for what he has done; he brings upon him what his conduct deserves” (Job 34:12 & 11, New International Version).
In the Revolutionary War the French played a big part in America's success. As shown in The Patriot there is only one French man that helps the entire continental army until the final battle in yorktown which ends the war by forcing the british to surrender. The French were greatly motivated to support America in the war because they had lost numerous amounts of their territories to the British in the French and Indian War. While the French fleet did block off the British from the sea, their role in this movie is twisted due to the lack of support shown on their account. France was america's greatest supporter and the inaccuracy in The Patriot did not display that at
Since the rise of Christianity among nations, people have been asking the question: why does evil exist when there is a God who is sovereign, powerful, and loving? Is he not able to fight the evil surrounding us? Or does God want to see us suffer which makes him an unloving Father after all? Saint Ignatius 's life explains a probable reason as to why evil exists and how one can flee from the temptations of this world. He was once a soldier who enjoyed the pleasures the world has always been offering, but he was soon reunited with God in the latter part of his life.
Prior to the Reformation Era, the Church drowned itself with money from indulgences and power over the people and the State through excommunication, indictment, and inquisition. Martin Luther, a Franciscans monk, saw their erroneous way and wrote five essential solas to lead the Church towards the right path once again. Through two of Martin Luther’s solas, Sola Gratia and Sola Fide, numerous Christ followers abandoned the ideology of good work and believed that faith and His grace would guarantee their access to Heaven. Although it is true that good work is not going to save sinful human, neglecting good work is wrong. Not only does good work represents his or her faith, good work proves the existence of salvation and brings glory to Him.
It is likely that neither of them is trustworthy sources. Froissart as a clerk in the English chancery was always going to praise the English king. Given that Scotland was going through a period of continuous war with the English at the time it would be likely that Bower would be prone to exaggerate things. It, therefore, seems likely that although Edward III was not the immoral King that Bower said he was that he was also not the chivalrous leader that Froissart claimed he was. This once again shows us Froissart 's viewpoint of chivalry.
As soon as the military gave up power in 1999 and in our haste to return to democracy, we returned to the same mistakes that have bedeviled us since independence –“western democracy”. 1999 was an ample opportunity for Nigeria to build on our traditional democracy, but we failed to look into it, we failed to appreciate a system that was innate in us and still working in traditional settings with relative ease. Western democracy besieges on an elected public office holder the full use of power and state apparatuses to promulgate his selfish interests and those of his constituency; thus excluding others who are in vast majority. These and many others are the deficiencies of this system of government. Why One Party: (1) It helps in the formation
