    One thing that I 've noticed that is strongly argued against in this day and age is the gender roles in the Bible, more specifically in Genesis one through three. The first time we hear about male and female is in the following quote from the bible "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” That line off the bat quickly shows that God created male and female to be inferior to animals and wildlife. God looks at himself very highly so

    This brings me to Melchizedek. Melchizedek is an enigma for most people who read the Bible and yet it is very important we know who and what He is. Melchizedek is a mystery indeed as He is briefly mentioned in the Bible. We initially hear of Melchizedek in the first book of the Bible, the book of Genesis. He is also mentioned in the book of Hebrews and Psalms. Who was He, where did He come from and what was his purpose? In short, Melchizedek was the Old Testament Jesus. You heard correctly, Jesus

    Other Translations of the Bible Some people think that having several translations of the Bible is a bad thing. They believe that it somehow confuses what the Word of God originally said. That is not true, according to the preservation of the original text. A translation is just taking something written in one language and converting it so that it is understood another language. Regarding the Bible, it is taking the Hebrew and Greek and Greek manuscripts and translating them into the English language

    Racism is a belief that human races have distinctive characteristics that determine their respective cultures, usually involving the idea that one’s race is superior and has the right to control others.

    Polytheism In The Bible

    Human nature is an underlying theme of the Bible, as we are shown time and time again when God destroys large groups of people, sometimes even everyone, it is because of our inherently corrupt human nature. While the idea of original sin is a Catholic one, it seems that without Gods laws and influence humans descend into hedonism and chaos, which means that humanity needs his laws to prevent that. God walks a fine line between being the strict lawmaker, but also creating laws that take into consideration

    She makes multiple biblical allusions in this novel, hence the name Poisonwood Bible. One major allusion we can all notice is that she uses the same name to start of the book as the bible, Genesis. Genesis was the first book in the bible as it is in the Poisonwood bible. She makes direct allusions to the scripture of the bible as well. In Daniel 14 : 23-42, he spreads ashes near the altar to show that the serpent god that the jews were worshipping was

    The Bible is not just a bunch of stories to give you something to feel better and cope with life. It’s God’s story. The Bible is God’s plan; “There are no random personalities, events, or circumstances. There are no unexpected situations. None of the actions recorded in the Bible caught God by surprise. Each word of Scripture is designed to move the plan forward in a way that glorifies God and points to Christ” (Hulshof, p. 4, ¶ 5). God’s plan is to rescue, redeem, and restore humanity. He will

    The Poisonwood Bible has had many themes surrounding the story, its characters, and the messages. Themes that come and go throughout the book are that things happen for a reason, everyone is equal, and don’t judge a book by its cover. Orleanna is the base of the story. She’s the wise and motherly figure, obviously, to some people; especially her daughters. She becomes depressed after one of her daughters died. Ruth May was killed by a snake and Orleanna feels guilty for her death. As a mother, seeing

I argue that wisdom is described as a virtue in both “The Iliad” and Bible because characters who are acting wisely in “The Iliad” achieves Arete, and the ones in Bible achieves Shalom, and vice versa. Moses, an important character in Bible, acts wisely in the book of Number. He doesn’t believe in God, so the

    As we live in a society where everyone is increasingly all about themselves, people are constantly searching for a purpose. As Christians, we can know our purpose if we dig a little bit into God’s special revelation: the Bible. Colossians 1:16 (Msg) says, “For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible… everything got started in him and finds its purpose in him.” This verse shows us that our purpose is greater than ourselves, it is of God. God made everything with an
