“The science, the art, the jurisprudence, the chief political and social theories, of the modern world have grown out of Greece and Rome—not by favour of, but in the teeth of, the fundamental teachings of early Christianity, to which science, art, and any serious occupation with the things of this world were alike despicable.” This quote by Thomas Henry Huxley perfectly describes the importance of Greece. The two most important cities in Greece were Sparta and Athens, in most opinions. The rise and fall of Athens and Sparta helped to shape Greek history and the Eastern Mediterranean, there were also quite a few strengths and weaknesses.
The early development of Greek society was influenced by many societies such as the Egyptians, Phoenicians, and Minoans. For instance, the earliest Greek writing style which was called Linear B was influenced by the Minoan writing style called Linear A. Furthermore, the Greeks not only adopted the Minoans’ writing style but they also used the ship-building and agricultural techniques used by the Egyptians and the Phoenicians. Despite their similarities, the Greeks had their characteristics that distinguished them from the rest. The Greeks were never unified but they did create one of the world’s most remarkable cultural eras.
School is in session! However, it is not the students who are in need of instruction, but the teachers! That is the message found in the infamous and controversial “letter to the Hebrews”, one of the newest documents from the growing religion known as Christianity. According to the writer, the Christians that he is writing to (those who converted from Judaism) should be teachers, but are instead the ones needing instruction.
This is a spin-off from the book Cold-Case Christianity For Kids but you will have no issue reading it as a stand alone. This is a highly inventive way to start kids thinking analytical but also learn about the Bible these both being profoundly important in their lives. Additionally, the book an easy read for kids, it is full of explanatory pictures that go allow with the story and activities that help you solve the case as you advance through the book. Therefore, these activities consist of reading passages in the Bible (CSI Assignment), learning new words (Detective Definitions), and the explanation of how an investigation works (A “TOOL” for your detective bag). How could this possibly get any better? There is an interactive website with
As we have seen Spartan and Athens were two very great ancient Greek cities which were not similar in the way they organized themselves through their government. Sparta was strong militarily with a never say die attitude while Athens encouraged their boys to study and had a democratic government. The democracy practiced today originated from
Ancient Greece was a land made up by a series of city-states. The two most well-known of those city-states were Athens and Sparta. Traditionally, Athens is viewed as a peaceful place where learning and culture were the main activities of its citizens while Sparta was considered an aggressive culture determined to be the military power in the Greek area. Unlike the typical Athenian who spent his days reading and learning the typical Spartan concerned himself with the activities of the state and preparing himself for war or so tradition says.
Sparta and Athens were both prominent city-states in Greece. Their culture, and political policies, however, couldn't be more different. Sparta had monarchical elements in their government. 2 kings ruled in Sparta, and leadership was mainly hereditary. Sparta's focus was on its military strength; They formed the academy system, whose goal was to train an elite fighting force, starting with boys at age 7. Conversely, Athens' focus was on its culture and trade. Athens desired constant change and improvement; Additionaly, Athenians wanted to be economically advanced. Democracy was also founded by the Athenians, and this led to Athens becoming "the leader of the Greek world" (Sources of the Making of the West,57).
The family is fading. Religion is falling. Faith is failing. The first right in the First Amendment, the right to the free practice of religion, is being viciously attacked by the citizens of America. The traditional family—an ideal so simple and fundamental that, twenty years ago, any alteration to it would be unfathomable—is now being challenged. Times are changing; society is changing. Among others, Elder Jeffrey R. Holland addresses this change in his speech, “Faith, Family, and Religious Freedom.” In this lecture given at Chapman University in 2015, he focuses on that trend in today’s society: faith, family, and religious freedom, or, more accurately, the decline in it. Traditional family values and religion have degraded at an astonishing rate, he claims; the fact that he devoted an entire speech to the topic proves the severity of said trend. Elder Holland builds common ground, quotes credible sources, and shows irrefutable facts and statistics to effectively convince his religious listeners that action must be taken to prevent the disappearing freedoms of faith, family, and religion, else disastrous consequences take place.
Peter Berger and Stephen Prothero argue the necessity for religious literacy relating to human nature and it’s importance in everyday life. Prothero explains the school systems direct affect for the increase of religious ignorance due to the lack of religious studies in public schools and higher education. Berger discusses the humanity aspect of religious literacy, and persuades the reader that it is the duty of human beings to be religiously educated, and through religious education humans can become much more knowledgeable about their morals and the effect society has had on them.
The thought of Christian world view probably never came across our minds prior to salvation. But it happens to be reflect everything we say or do whether we know it or not. Humanity beliefs about God history and ultimately helps shapes how we live. We all remember the moment when accepted Christ as our Savior, we are born again spiritually into God 's kingdom . But just as a newborn baby needs milk for growth and maturity, we as a baby Christian needs spiritual food for growth. (1peter 2:2-3) reads "Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the
The part of your post that stood out to me the most was when you talked about young Christians. I recently had a conversation about that with someone. Growing up in a Christian household and having a dad as a pastor I felt like the only reason why I believed in God and that his Word was true was because my parents told me it was. So with that being said growing up I never felt like I had the chance to figure out what my beliefs were. I think that it is important that help young Christians develop their faith put we also need to make sure that we are allowing them to have a chance to think through their own beliefs instead to telling them what to believe. A fear I have with telling young Christians what they should believe is that it may turn
Hello my name is Sophie Horrigan and I am here today to talk to you about the education systems in Sparta and Athens. I was given the argument ‘Athenian education should be more like the Spartan System’. I am strongly disagreeing with this argument. Both these systems works in different ways. This is probably because Athens and Sparta have very different priorities.
In my opinion, the development of Western civilization is influenced by Greek culture because of Western knowledge, political systems, and procedures such as democracy and lawful equality originated there. The main reason is Greece is introduced as home of many “firsts” in the humanities, especially in Western civilization. Indeed, knowledge foundation of mathematics, medicine, astrology, or linguistics is nearly taken from the ancient Greece. For example, the Greek alphabet was the first alphabet in the Western sense of the word. The Greek alphabet include two letters called alpha and beta. Nowadays, the western alphabet has still created by the two letters, including letters such as A, B, E, and O. In addition, Greece is home of the first
Throughout my entire life, it seemed as though everything was centered around my family’s collective core morals and an unwritten ethic code instilled in me as I grew up. My family’s principles remain a major part of my life, especially as I begin the transition to independence in the adult world. Considering my family has always been one of the most important things to me, I have always placed value on what I have learned from them and where we come from. My big, small-town family gave me a sense of what it means to help others, how we can accomplish this goal, and for what reasons. Being raised in a close-knit, Christian family with strong values will assist me in understanding how to be successful in terms of compassion and
