Ever since I was six years old, the year I was baptized, I have been on fire for the Lord. I attended a Christian school for eight years and have always been very involved at my church. My first experience outside of my “Christian bubble” was when I went to a public high school. For the first time in my life, I was out of my comfort zone. Being at a public school challenged my faith, strengthened my leadership skills, and forced me to branch out and meet people I would have never encountered otherwise. However, even though being at a public school helped strengthen my faith in ways I would have never guessed, I believe attending a Christian university—like Liberty—is the best choice to further my education. Going to college is new and exciting, but it can also be a demanding and intimidating experience. Being so far away from home, in a different environment,
There are many situations where I felt myself and others were treated unfairly; However, I’m going to share the one that struck out to me the most. Growing up, I was raised in a Christian background, specifically Methodist. Even though I respect the views of those who are not Christian, unfortunately not all Christians do that. Some Christians use their Christianity to judge those who are not living up to their expectations or those who are not righteous in their eyes. I experienced it myself because I was in a situation where other Christians were castigating me.
I agree with you, the traveler is very caring person and the moment he knew there is another life alive he stopped. The traveler is very emotional and wanted save both lives, the fawn and people who travel by that deer. But when he knew he can't do anything he did the right thing to push her away in the canyon.
in just the sophomore class due to stress, repugnance, or isolation. A copious amount of students at the school complain about stress and ridiculous rules. As a matter of fact, about 75 percent of students are disinterested with the school. The students believe that the school needs to progress in order to keep interest. Advancement in rules, a time for community every day, and the reduction in homework can significantly adjust a student’s perspective on school. Likewise, it illustrates how Christians should behave. To improve Northwest Christian School, one should make the lunchroom into a cafe before school, allow students to wear their school shirts any day of the week, and assign no homework on Wednesdays or weekends.
“When you argue against Him you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all: it is like cutting off the branch you are sitting on.” I got that quote from Mere Christianity. God is omnipotent and He is all- powerful. He knows and sees everything, God is unlike Santa Claus, God is something to really believe in. God has given C.S. Lewis a very intriguing way to spread his word. Mere Christianity has many ideas on faith and truth that helps my walk with the Lord.
As I approach the end of my high school career, I start thinking if I am prepared and ready to face the next step in my life. College is known to test a man’s responsibility in order to prepare him to face the world alone. Jesuit High School has changed my life throughout the years I have attended the school. Jesuit has prepared me for college and taught me how to become a more responsible man. When I was thinking of where I should apply to high school, Jesuit was not my first option; however, coming from a family of Jesuit alumni, I knew it was the only school for me. Throughout my earlier years at Jesuit, I struggled and was miserable due to the overwhelming work and rules I was required to follow. However, I soon realized what the school was about in its mission in turning its students into men for others. I have found that Jesuit High School has transformed me educationally, has made me a more responsible man, and has taught me to be a man for others.
The earliest Christians did not have church building. They typically met in homes. (The first actual church building so far found is at Dura Europos on the Euphrates , dating about 231.). They did not have public ceremonies that would introduce them to the public, and they had no access to the mass media of their day. So, to understand the steady and diverse expansion, we can have a conversation, about the Apostle Paul, we don't run across many "big names" as missionaries in the first few hundred years of Christians history. Instead, the faith spread through a multitude of humble, ordinary believers whose names have been long forgotten.
I enjoyed reading your post. I am in agreement with your statement in Christian coaching promoting greatness and God’s plan in someone’s life. As Catherine defined Christian coaching during the video lecture, “Christian life coaching is a new helping relationship to propel Christian formation” (American Association of Christian Counselors, n.d.). I also believed that it is essential to embrace our Christian worldview when working as Christian coaches because this is what would set us apart from other coaches. In addition.there are many important aspects to consider when working as a professional in a discipline such as this one but the key aspect is to understand our spiritual foundations. In other words, we as Christian coaches need to have
This belief goes beyond one or two religions; it is prevalent across all religions. Keeping this in mind, it will be helpful to outline a method for witnessing to adherents of folk religions. Phillip Samaan lists six steps to Christian Witnessing in his book, “Christ’s Way of Making Disciples.” However, these six steps are designed to witness to other Christians. To better serve the purpose of this paper, only five steps will be mentioned. These five steps will serve as a basis for witnessing to adherents to folk religions. This method has been effective because it was not contrived from human thought. Rather, it models exactly what Christ did. The first step Jesus took was to mingle with others as one who desires their good. Before even
Shortly after the middle ages ended, around the 14th century, new beliefs and ideas began to take place in Europe. These ideas focused on challenging ancient beliefs (this is known as Renaissance Humanism) and the rediscovery of Christian documents (This is known as Christian Humanism). Education began to have more value, and man began to think more selfishly.
As Christians, we should be lights for Christ and show His love through us. We often forget how many people can look up to us so we should watch how we live our lives. We are called to be set apart and not conformed to the world. Lies and deception are major sins in our world today. No one can trust each other or keep their word. They lie to others and break their promises. Christians should not live as promise breakers but promise keepers! Jesus is our perfect example as a promise keeper. He always keeps his promises and never deceives us. He promised eternal life to those who believe and accept him and eternal life they shall receive! We should keep the promises of others and gain their trust. Jephthah kept his vow for "a vow was a solemn
Do you think ‘doing what is right in our own eyes’ can cause dangerous results? To me, the answer is, yes. The reason that I came out with this answer is because of the book of Judges in the Bible, which tells us about the complete ‘tragedy’ by Israel’s mistakes, subjectivism, and the cycle of sin.
I never thought to be a Christian leader. As a matter of fact, I am a person who did not know about God for 26 years. I was the center of my life, and there was no room for God to enter. Even when I was attending church service, I was trying not to be exposed to other church people. In other words, I was the kind of person who was afraid to walk into a life of faith. However, in the past three years, God has changed me in many ways, and showed me so many miraculous things. And, finally here I am. Being a Christian leader seems the most challenging job in the world. I am working as the chairman of a youth ministry, and walking on the path to be a church leader. When God called me to work for the
A Christian is a person who adheres to Christianity, an Abrahamic, monotheistic religion based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. "Christian" derives from the Koine Greek word Christós, a translation of the Biblical Hebrew term mashiach.
Christian Tradition course exposed me to the Christian Tradition based on Biblical and church history. The course taught me the differences and similarities of Christian Tradition from other major world religions. I learned about the significance of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and the Trinity based on the teachings of the Bible. The course also briefly covered 2,000 years of church history but with emphasis on the impact of the Council of Nicea, Council of Chalcedon, and John and Charles Wesley on Christianity. The professor emphasized the importance of the reformation that sparked a revolution in the church.
