God sees everything and hears everything and is everywhere, which keeps Him pretty busy. So you shouldn't go wasting His time by going over your Mom and Dad's head asking for something they said you couldn't have. Atheists are people who don't believe in God. I don't think there are any in my town. At least there aren't any who come to our church. Jesus is God's Son.
He used to do all the hard work like walking on water and performing miracles and people finally got tired of Him preaching to them and they crucified Him. He could stay in heaven. And now He helps His Dad out by listening to prayers and seeing things which are important for God to take care of and which ones He can take care of Himself without having to bother God.
Like a secretary, only more important. You can pray anytime you want and they are sure to help you because they got it worked out so one of them is on duty all the time. You should always go to church on Sunday because it makes God happy, and if there's anybody you want to make happy, it's God. Don't skip church to do something you think will be more fun like going to the beach.
And besides, the sun doesn't come out at the beach until noon anyway. If you don't believe in God, besides being an atheist, you will be very lonely, because your parents can't go everywhere with you, like to camp, but God can. It is good to know He's around you when you're scared in the dark or when you can't swim and big kids throw you into real deep water. But…you shouldn't just always think of what God can do for you.
I figure God put me here and He can take me back anytime He pleases. And…that's why I believe in God. Faith in God - Christ's Perspective The simple perspective of a child's faith in God is a key principle in Christ's teaching. Can one Live without the other? Theology Habitually, faith and reason have respectively been looked at as being the sources of justification for religious faith. For the reason that both can supposedly serve this same epistemic purpose, it has been a question of much interest to theorists and theologians how the two are linked and as a result how the rational agent should treat claims resulting from either basis.
Some theologians have held that there can be no struggle between faith and reason -- that reason correctly employed and faith correctly assumed will never create opposing or opposing claims -- whereas others have supported that faith and reason can be in honest disagreement over certain propositions or events O'Collins, The Instruction on the Ecclesial Vocation of the Theologian explains, "y its nature, faith appeals to reason because it reveals to man the truth of his destiny…… [Read More].
Comparing Christianity and Buddhism Faith. Faith influences attitudes toward health, healing, and the role of healing practitioners in the lives of individuals and their communities. Because of this intersection between faith and wellness, it is critical for nurses to be sensitive to diverse patient backgrounds and belief systems.
By understanding multiple faith systems and how those systems' worldviews impact patient attitudes, behaviors, and communication styles, nurses can provide more appropriate and effective interventions. Even if the majority of patients are of the same background as the nurse, it is necessary to remain open to alternative worldviews. Moreover, even within one faith category individual differences will warrant scrutiny towards the patient's attitudes toward existential questions.
Christianity is itself a highly diverse faith. Different denominations espouse various attitudes toward illness and health, healing and wellness.
Therefore, the nurse should never assume that all Christian patients have the same values. When it comes to working with patients from…… [Read More].
Abrahamic Faith True Power: An Examination of Abrahamic Faith There are several aspects of Abrahamic faith that are admirable and are worthy of commendation. Author Soren Kierkegaard details many of these notions in his manuscript Fear and Trembling, which is a fairly exhaustive analysis of Abraham's actions, hypothetical possibilities of courses of actions he could have taken, and interpretations of both. In fact, one of the principle characteristics of Abrahamic faith that render it so virtuous to the point of almost being ineffable is the incomprehensible nature of it -- particularly when compared to the zeitgeist in which Kierkegaard originally composed this text, as well as when it is compared to the thoughts and sentiments of the contemporary age we currently exist in now.
However, when one considers that one of the defining traits of faith is the fact that it primarily is illogical, unreasonable, and in many cases inexplicable,…… [Read More]. Cottingham and Adams on Faith as a Virtue. Cottingham and Adams on Faith as a Virtue Faith as a Virtue There is presently much controversy regarding the difference between theists and atheists, as the masses have a limited understanding of each of these groups. Naturalists are particularly important in this situation, as they concentrate on performing an in-depth analysis of things before being able to express an opinion regarding these respective things.
The scientific community is generally inclined to refute concepts related to a supernatural force controlling the universe and it emphasizing the importance of evidence when considering things that ideas should accept as being valid.
In contrast, religious people believe that faith is actually the result of sufficient evidence that has been gathered through the years and that materialized in emotions felt by believers and in traditions that they uphold. Theists are typically inclined to believe that atheists are unable to appreciate life to its full potential…… [Read More].
Movie Presentation Keeping the Faith Presentation Outline "Keeping the Faith" is a comedy movie that shows relationship between love, friendship and faith. The writer Stuart Blumberg and director Edward Norton have presented a story of three friends who belong to different faiths but fall in love due to close friendship.

Each religion highly upholds their spiritual values hence the need for health practitioners to be cautious while handling varied clientele whether they hold the same religious sentiments or not. In this research we will major on the views held by the Sikh, Buddhist and Judaist religions in comparison to the Christian belief on healing.
Sikh religion The Sikh hold the belief that when one is sick it is the will of God and that He is merciful to heal; however one has to consider medical treatment in order to get well. Sikh patients engage in prayers to seek God for help, seek to obtain peace by remembering Gods name, recite sacred hymns Gurbani which are words from the holy scriptures Guru Granth…… [Read More].
Islam Teaches That Faith Must. There are many examples of God's love, but much violence as well. The Bible is full of stories of warring peoples, fighting to the death for their beliefs. Persecution of the Jews, seen on a massive scale as late as the 20th century's Holocaust, was fueled by the New Testament, as Jews were blamed for the crucifixion death of Jesus Christ.
The 20th century saw considerable violence in Northern Ireland, as Protestants and Catholics murdered each other in the name of their respective branches of Christianity.
Like radical Muslims, a relatively small number of people believed that violence was the answer, and the only way to demonstrate their commitment to their God. Integrating Faith in Business the Objective of. Integrating Faith in usiness The objective of this work is to describe how it is to work with difficult bosses and to discuss the discoveries made in this present course relating to this specific issue specifically emphasizing iblical principles.
This work in writing will deliberate through research and reflection about how the Christian Scriptures and faith relate to the issue of a difficult boss and ways that one can live out the choices and changes in order to work with the difficult boss. The work of Cohen addresses what it is like to work with a difficult boss and examines the various types of difficult bosses that exist.
Included in these are the following types of difficult bosses: Cohen, The micromanager type boss is described as the type of boss that "often believes he's doing the…… [Read More]. In other words, in ordinary parlance, how does one usually use the words of belief, faith, theology, and spirituality?
By examining such common usage, often one may find clues as to the subtle or not so subtle differences between the terms. Take, for example, the notion of belief.
I might say that I believe in evolution, that I believe that human beings evolved from primates. In other words, one can believe in a supposition that may or may not be correct that has nothing to do with conventional religious structures and institutions, or even, if one accepts fundamentalist interpretations of Genesis, goes against such religious suppositions.
I might also say that I believe that my…… [Read More]. Miracles When Faith Contradicts Reason. When Faith Contradicts Reason Theologians, and philosophers alike, have traditionally sought to bring out the relationship between reason and faith. This they have done in an attempt to clarify the link between the two terms or points-of-view -- an undertaking that involves the determination of how agents are supposed to respond to assertions drawn from either perspective, within the context of rationality.
A number of scholars are of the belief that reason and faith cannot yield conflicting outcomes, if each one is understood, and used in the right circumstances. Others hold the contrary opinion; conflicts between the two will always arise. The issue, in this regard, has always been 'which one, between the two, should prevail when a conflict arises?
Others, however, in appreciation of the different contexts within which the two are applicable, hold the view that, reason…… [Read More]. Sartre and Bad Faith in. The individual believes the lies imposed by society, and sees them for truth. It provides a convenient vehicle for relinquishing the responsibility of freedom. Categories and definitions limit freedom, choice, and the capacity to transcend categorization.
According to rown, it should also be kept in mind that the bad faith concept is somewhat beyond simple self-deception. It is the perpetuation of a "truth" that the individual knows to be in fact false. However, this perpetuation feeds upon itself by the individual's needs for whatever is the result of the deception.
For the unhappy worker, for example, bad faith persists as a result of the paycheck, while the unhappy mother would continue in bad faith for the sake of being called a "good" mother, and so on. In Sartre's view then, it appears that there is little that the individual within such a society can do to escape bad faith.
Aquinas Thomas Aquinas was summarily concerned with the compatibility of faith and reason. Aquinas offers a rather ironic glimpse at the nature of reason, which is both capable of intellectual comprehension of God but simultaneously insufficient for understanding God. Thus, Aquinas argues that God can be ascertained and even logically proven via the use of reason, but that the experience of God is a transcendent, spiritual, and emotional one that requires faith.
Faith also fulfills the goals of reason, which is truer and greater understanding of God. One of the ways Aquinas reconciles faith and reason is…… [Read More]. What does a faith do for a life?. Examples used are historical data such as Germanic faith, Vedic cultures and faith from Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Bibliography cites four references Faith; Blind love or stupidity What are the grounds of religious faith?
It also needs to be recognized many devout followers believe that their God is supreme, for instance followers of the Muslim faith. However, to answer the question, where are the grounds for faith in religion, we need to look at the evidence and the reason of the existence of faith.

This paper will explore the intricate connection that faith has to many successful businesses and entrepreneurs and how it can forge winning practices in business. Current research demonstrates the pivotal impact it can have to entrepreneurs, who make up a massive part of the economy.
Neubert and three colleagues at Baylor University investigated the connection between faith and the propensity to start a business, by examining data from a survey that queried 1, U. Essentially, entrepreneurs were found to pray more often than non-entrepreneurs and to possess a higher level of faith, believing that God was directly listening and…… [Read More].
Philosophy Reason and Faith the. Therefore, it can be concluded that philosophical reasoning is as vital as faith for diaconal ministry. The unity of truth, that is, the importance of realizing that both philosophy and religion lead to the same ultimate truths, shows that reason and faith are more related than they are usually considered to be: Revelation renders this unity certain, showing that the God of creation is also the God of salvation history.
London Baptist Confession of Faith. In the London Baptist Confession of Faith of , we see a confession of faith statement that is much closer to that of what modern day Baptists would find familiar. The document was written and signed by seven separate congregations that collaborated to write the document. The document's purpose was to differentiate the beliefs of the Particular Baptists from the General Baptists.
This was to formally define the beliefs of the Particular Baptists as opposed to the General Baptists. It rejected the notion that the law convicted of sin, claiming that the terrors of the law were not needed. They were not needed because the gospel alone has the power to do this. Prayer and Faith in Habakkuk. Authentic Prayer in Habakkuk The world today offers many challenges, especially for the person who is determined to maintain a sense of faithful love for God.
In addition to the many scientific and non-faithful persons attempting to dethrone God from the faithful heart, personal struggles and challenges could also lead to significant despair. Even the strongest of faiths can be tested, challenged, and even a little shaken. It is my belief that this is one of the reasons why the Bible is filled with examples of everyday human beings who, despite the faith required for their positions as prophets or preachers, nevertheless experienced challenges that were every bit as hard on their faith as the challenges we experience today Hays, p.
Hence, a prophet like Habakkuk and the nature of his prayers provide for the reader an honest rendition of what it truly means to have faith, and indeed,…… [Read More]. Leap Faith Kierkegaard Soren Kierkegaard Leap Faith Kierkegaard Soren Kierkegaard ? How view faith differ conventional religious Soren Kierkegard's conception of a leap of faith is decidedly distinct from that of traditional religious understanding of this notion.
In most religions, particularly Christianity, a leap of faith is simply placing one's belief in a deity that does not exist. Anyone who adheres to a particular organized religion, especially monotheistic ones that include byth Judaism and Islam, in effect is taking a leap of faith because they have decided to worship a deity that they cannot see and have little empirical evidence about. Kierkegaard's conception of a leap of faith is highly different from this point-of-view, largely due to the internal nature of his idea of this concept.
Kierkegaard viewed a leap of faith as an inexplicable conviction about something that is not based on external knowledge or surroundings. Moreover, such a view or belief…… [Read More]. Mormonism the Religious Faith of. According to the Mormon website, there are six key points that believers must adhere to in the Mormon Church: Romero Faith and Justice in. The archbishop evolved from an ordinary and quite timid person to a great popular hero. But he could have been a rabbi during orld ar II, fighting the Nazis, or a Tibetan monk against the Chinese.
The purpose is to show the way a human being can reach the heights of humanity, and how one man can make a difference. The film is a great accomplishment for achieving this above-noted sense of universality and for still dealing honestly in Catholic themes and teachings. For Romero, equally as critical as his personal faith in God was his connection to the Catholic community that surrounded him.
I have no reason to contort either of them to make them compatible. So hopefully, readers of all persuasions can conclude that the book provides an impartial analysis of the, often underappreciated, intellectual depth of the Christian faith as it is aligned with the natural world that we see around us.
Death and faith from existentialist point of view. Periechontology In order to understand the underlying concepts of faith with respect to philosophy, first it is important to understand 'philosophy' adequately.
Jaspers was concerned about noting the originality and singularity of philosophy and he frames it as "to elucidate" erhellen. As per Jaspers, this clarification or elucidation does not come to philosophers through an external agent but it happens by itself during the philosophical process and this happening is an innermost act. Philosophers understand the meaning and philosophy behind actions and things as they seek to explore hitherto mysterious, unexplained happenings and phenomenon.
However, only a few philosophers speak about the death. Even then, the best they can reveal about death is about its awareness. As such, although death is an unavoidable event and that is the only knowledge we have about it. All are aware that they have to face death one day and it will…… [Read More].
Islamic Faith Religion Is a. In the city of Medina, Muhammad united the warring tribes. Following eight years of fighting Mecca tribes the Muslims conquered Mecca. In the year , after returning to Medina from a farewell pilgrimage to Mecca, Muhammad became ill and died.

He had united the Arabian tribes into a single Muslim religious polity hegemon ibid, The revelations Muhammad reported receiving until his death in form the body of the Qur'an, regarded by Muslims as the "ord of God" and around which the Muslim religion is built upon.

And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what was spoken to her from the Lord" -- Luke 1: With her advanced age, especially compared to Mary's, Elizabeth also begins to have a protective role towards her younger relative and, by correlation, towards the yet unborn Jesus. Following the storyline and considering the times, Mary became pregnant without being Joseph's wife in a physical sense.
Given the traditions, this may have meant that Joseph's family would have had the opportunity to kill her in order to save their honor. The fact that Mary chooses Elizabeth as the relative where to take refuge shows the importance of Elizabeth's character in the biblical storyline and the fact that she offers sufficient guarantees to ensure that she is chosen for that.
The previously mentioned characteristics of Elizabeth blend in to ensure that she is the protective individual…… [Read More].
Nursing and Jewish Faith. These Jews might subscribe to the Orthodox, Conservative, or Reform paths of Jewish faith, or they might be secular and non-aligned. Even though devout customs and degrees of following among these paths of Judaism differ extensively, nurses must gradually come to terms with the religious customs of Judaism to extend the utmost complete care.
Jewish Perspectives on Pregnancy and Childbearing This paper shall deal with patients having strong Jewish faith which are the Orthodox Jews and the role of a nurse in providing special considerations to this particular community.

Their religious faiths are shown in every facet of their lives, in health as well as illness.

The Maccabaean revolt set the stage for all future hope of the restoration of God's people from exile. One thing the different groups of Jews generally agreed upon was that as long as there was Roman occupation, everyone would remain in exile.
Most all of them agreed that it was Israel's sin that had led them to this exile. One group of Jews, the Pharisees, committed themselves to strict purity with hope for a reconstituted and restored Israel. The Jewish people were monotheistic -- that is, they believed in one God, and they believed in one God at a time in history when surrounding cultures -- including the ones dominating them specifically the Romans during Jesus' time -- were polytheistic they believed in many gods and they used idols to represent their gods.
The Jews never used idols…… [Read More]. Home Topics Religion Faith Essays. Awareness of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study and the U. American Journal of Public Health, 98 6. Protecting Human Research Participants. Retrieved from The Joint Commission: The Kingdom and the Power.

Faith, according to Hebrews , is being sure of what we hope for and what we do not see. (New International Version Teen Study Bible) In modern times, faith has been weakened in meaning so that some people use it to mean self-confidence.3/5(6).
What's Faith? Many world religions have their own definitions of faith. The standard definition of faith today, seems to be “belief without evidence”. Throughout the essay, Forster will make a proclamation, such as rationality is good, and subsequently retreat half a step, in this case insisting on the continued necessity of faith. It is an interesting technique and demonstrates much of the complexity of his positions, and arguably those of Bloomsbury insofar as they are a whole.
