- The Dalai Lama (new)
The Dalai Lamas are believed to be manifestations of Avalokiteshvara or Chenrezig, which are the Bodhisattva of Compassion and patron of Tibet. Bodhisattvas have been enlightened and have postponed their nirvana for rebirth so they can serve humanity. The current Dalai Lama, whose name at the time was Lhamo Dhondup (Wish-Fulling Godess), was recognized at two years old to be the reincarnated Thubten Gyatso who was the 13th Dalai Lama. Now seventy seven he is the oldest lived. The Dalai Lamas ...
Prophet - One who utters divinely inspired revelations
That is how the word prophet is defined in Webster’s dictionary, but a prophet is much more. A prophet is someone who is chosen by God to convey his message to the people; a middleman between God and his people. A prophet is someone who God selects as the embodiment of himself. Someone that people will listen to. Someone with a presence. Now the prophets did not all lead perfect lives, but they all had a bond with the Lord that could not ...
- harvesting a healthy marriage
In order to harvest a one was first know God and what marriage represents. It is vitally important to be saved as you cannot love your spouse with the love if God when you haven\'t experienced the love if God firsthand for yourself. God is love and therefore the ultimate teacher on love. When we enter into a sincere and purposeful relationship with Him, we can truly understand what the term agape love means. Agape love is the love that God has for us. It is unconconditional love. It is not based...
- Arch Bishop Romero
Arch Bishop Romero was a truly amazing person in every single way. He was always a quite person but when he was appointed Arch Bishop he was now a very important person and people looked up to him and his decisions. When Romero really showed his voice and his position as Arch Bishop was when the government felt they had complete control over everyone and everything such as the Church. Romero knew this was not right and he could not sit back and watch, he took his role and fought for what he beli...

Confirmation: What Is It & What Does It Mean?
By: Brittney Butcher
November 18, 2012
Confirmation was originally a part of the rite of initiation for membership in the church. The candidate was baptized after confessing his or her faith. A prayer was offered for the blessing and strengthening of the Holy Spirit in the candidate\'s life, followed by the laying on of hands or the signing of the cross with oil upon the forehead. The rite concluded with the new member sharing in the Eucharis...
- Dallin Talk
Education is an important part of Heavenly Father’s plan to help us become more like Him. He wants us to educate our minds and to develop our skills and talents. The education we gain will be valuable to us during mortality and in the life to come.
We should be aware of what is going on in the world. We should be aware of changes in technology. We should seek learning out of the best books, and we should be open to opinions that we don’t agree with. Discussion is a catalyst of discovery. We sho...
- Actual Paper Comparative Religion
America has been named the "melting pot" of the world. It houses many different cultures, nationalities, ideas and religions. There are Christians, Jews, Catholics, Buddhists, Mormons, Hindus, Spiritualists, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Islamics, plus many more. America is unique in that all these religions are represented in a nation that is only 200 years old.
The influence of religion on mankind can be traced back to the first records of history. Religion has served as a pillar of strength to some a...
- Minor Prophet Amos
The title of the book comes from its writer, Amos. Amos is the first prophet whose name also serves as the title of the corresponding biblical book in which his story is found. The prophet’s name means “burden-bearer” or “load-carrier.” He was unassuming, but bold and fearless when called to bear witness against the evils of his day. He was not known for his sympathy or warmth, but for his sense of justice and pride.
Amos’ hometown was Tekoa a village in Judah, about ten miles s...
- Greater Grace
I grew up in a fundamentalist Baptist Church. We were not the most fundamentalist of the various Baptist Churches in the city. Actually we prided ourselves on our “moderation”. After all, we allowed our preacher to wear colored shirts in the pulpit! While we talked a lot about grace, we had no idea how to live out grace. Spirituality was determined by the things that you did and did not do. While unwritten (only the fundamentalist churches that we laughed at had written lists), we all knew...
- About Prayer
Praying, is what we do everyday. But we somehow do not know why, when, how to pray. This topic added much knowledge to us on prayer.
Prayer is a time for our sharing with God. We can have our free choice to express our deepest and truest feelings to God. At this stage, God is like our friend, but we must be sincere. Also, this relationship with God should be a two-way relationship. Through prayer we can thank God for the day, apologize for our sins and ask for forgiveness, also, we ...
- Prayer In Schools? I pray not.
When a student or faculty member of a public school reaches campus, they have entered government property. Our government is known to try and follow a simple rule: Do not mix church and state. This avoids controversy, and keeps everyone equal in the law system.
In recent times, it has been proposed that a time for prayer be inserted into the agenda of public schools. This would resemble a moment of silence, or it would be an entire class period during which faculty and students alike could spen...
- Joan of Arc
Joan of Arc and the Hundred Years’ War
The Hundred Years’ war, is it possible that a war could actually last so long? According to historians, the Hundred Years’ War (1338-1453) was actually one hundred and fifteen years long, but I guess they call it what it is because it sounds better, and one hundred is a nice round number. What does Joan of Arc have to do with this war? Wasn’t she a woman? Yes, she was a woman, but she was a key leader in the war and she became a saint for dying for her Ca...
The main conflict in the text is about having different religions. It's about
how a little girl is having problems about understanding why she can't paint
religious persons with dark skin. At school the teacher says that Amina can take
the picture to show her mom. Amina doesn't understand why it can't hang on the
wall together with the other childrens'. But the teacher gives another excuse
and Amina "surrenders", and takes the picture home. But as her mother sees the

The Death Penalty
American Civil Liberties Union Briefing Paper Number 8
THE DEATH PENALTY
Since our nation's founding, the government -- colonial, federal and state --
has punished murder and, until recent years, rape with the ultimate sanction:
death. More than 13,000 people have been legally executed since colonial times,
most of them in the early 20th Century. By the 1930s, as many as 150 people
were executed each year. However, public outrage and lega...
