In our contemporary modern and global context, theology more concretely understood, is critical reflection on historical praxis. This definition emphasizes human action (praxis) as the point of departure for all reflection and as the determining factor in our encounter with the Lord and with other humans. Our actions in history (past, present, and future) shape has to shape our theological reflection and understanding.

Writing “a critical theological essay” is giving a critique to “nontheological material” (e.g. Film or current global ethical issues) in the light of theological perspectives. Yaghjian helps to identify the “rhetorics of the critical theological essay” in which she emphasizes on explaining the elements of this essay: “a problematic, an exposition, a criticism, and an interpretation” (64) which all are essential in writing a critical theological essay paper. However, careful reading and understanding take a vital role in writing a critical paper or a critique. The two sample outlines of theological summary help to see vividly

The focus of this paper is to analyze how Knitter and Makransky transitioned and engaged to, and from Buddhism and Christianity to better understand the teachings within their respective religion. Christian reflection on interfaith dialogue in recent decades has opened new venues, allowing the rediscovery and reinterpretation of certain theological approaches of the existing Christian thought. This reflection is closely linked to the growing awareness of the religious and cultural diversity.

Several topics in this class have reminded me of what it means to be a Christian and how to be a Christian. The two topics I will discuss in the Reflection paper are Temptation and Sins of Commission. Temptation often leads to sin which can include sins of commission.
Part One -Temptation
a. Theological Definition
Temptation is something experienced by a person with thoughts or desires which are contrary to how God desires man to act. When a person acts on these thoughts sin is committed. A person can be tempted by thoughts of money, lust and greed. If a person falls into temptation against God’s word they will be separated from God unless they have accepted Jesus Christ as their personal

Self-reflection using the medicine wheel: Impact of communication on self-care
There are a variety of medicine wheels used by different tribes for different purposes. What the Aborigines call the “medicine wheel” is a universal symbol, known in psychology as the Jungian mandala - a representation of wholeness (Tinker, 1996). The medicine wheel is a symbol that represents the dynamic systems of mind, body, emotions and spirit, and the needs related to each of these aspects (listed above) that is required for the development of human potential (Mussell, 2005).

Wesley’s professed object was to promote as far as ‘I am able vital practical religion and by the grace of God to beget, preserve, and increase the life of God in the souls of men’” (Cross 1446). The topic of this paper is theological information about salvation from John Wesley’s point of view. Salvation is one being saved from his or her sin by the act of God’s grace. Salvation is very important to both the church and Christians today because we cannot be a church or a Christian without Salvation it comes when we welcome Jesus Christ into our hearts. Wesley believes in original sin; and “salvation from original sin

There is an unambiguous divide between Christians and pagans in philosophy. In their efforts to answer the philosophical questions of life, both contrive philosophies running the gamut from Biblical to unbiblical, and their teachings are accordingly more or less compatible with a life fully surrendered to Christ. One of the most foundational questions affecting the issue of spiritual surrender revolves around human nature and autonomy,especially pertaining to the relationship of man and reason. Three philosophers of history presented views on the relationship of man to his own reason: Descartes, Locke, and Kant. This paper will examine each in turn, examining their respective

The formation of a community is based on at least one commonality. Various communities intersect because, as complex individuals, humans have an exponential range of interests. However, the maintenance of the links within and between these communities is also dependent upon these commonalties. Therefore, a few people’s interest in theatre has significant effects upon their wider community. Community Theatre is a convocation and celebration of shared talents. The complexity and vibrancy of the tapestry it produces is also a reflection of the diversity of its creators. This paper explores the evolution of community theatre’s reparative role within its

William Graham Sumner was, according to some scholars, the most influential social Darwinist in the United States. The problems of this label are mentioned at the beginning of this paper. He brought together three traditions of western capitalist culture: the Protestant ethic, the doctrines of classical economics, and Darwinian natural selection.
Sumner was inspired by Spencer’s theory of evolutionary sociology. “In the Spencerian intellectual atmosphere of 1870’s and 1880’s it was natural…to see the economic contest in competitive society as a reflection of the struggle in the animal world.” Sumner used the example of dogs chasing the mechanical hare in in races

Water mills use a turning wheel with water catching paddles to generate power.

The technology was refined and used to power tanneries, blast furnaces, forge mills, and paper mills which evolved into the machinery we use in today's factories. Although the exact origins of the hour glass aren't clear, it is generally accepted that it was adopted in Europe by the end of the High Middle Ages. The hour glass was especially popular amongst

Entwistle. As the title states, this book discusses how to integrate psychology and theology. It also dives into to why it is so important to be able to integrate the two. Entwistle explains that just because the two are different does not mean they should be separated and that we have to use both our worldviews. “Weaving together perspectives from psychology and Christian theology can help us understand and appreciate humanity more fully than we could either perspective alone.” (p.3)

The Community Rule Documents
Of the documents recovered, the oldest is identified as The Community Rule; with an estimated dating of 100 B.C.E. it seems to contain the most descriptive detailing of the requirements for involvement and participation into the community.

Bonhoeffer's theological intersection with Wesleyanism
Grace is a word that can seem dull and lifeless in the church today due to its overuse and familiarity. Dietrich Bonhoeffer sees grace, costly grace, as the summary of the true Gospel. In Bonhoeffer's day, such costly grace had been exchanged for a cheap imitation of grace that was little more than empty religion, demanding little effort and no obedience. Bonhoeffer, who was eventually martyred, knew intimately that , “When Christ calls a man [sic], he bids him come and die.”1 For Bonhoeffer, then

The poet’s reflection on Maude Gonne’s gaunt appearance “Hollow of cheek as though it drank the wind” (27) adds to my assertion that Yeats is referring to Gonne as the “chestnut tree.” Much of Yeats’s work includes comments on the poet’s unrequited love; therefore, I think that my assertion carries weight, and it is possible that the personal reflection may have a broad appeal to readers because people are intrigued with the inner life and psychology of others, especially famous people.

As theological understanding of the Trinity deepened, this "ecclesiological reflection" became more obviously incomplete. As early as the late 1930s, the Reformed church's understanding of the Trinity had begun to change, picking up speed through the turbulent '60s and '70s and exploding into the churches through the unification pains of the 1980s. By the 1990s, the Trinity was described in terms of a Perichoresis understanding by theologian Shirley Guthrie, drawing on the work of Karl Barth and traditional Orthodox theology. In Perichoresis, the Trinity is understood to be in constant

I first focus on analyzing complexity and conditions of the question about truth of religion in order to determine various meanings which could be ascribed to the expression "truth of religion". I am especially interested in possibilities and limitations which various kinds of studies of religion (science of religion, M.

In the past the study of religion was used both to criticize and to defend a

As a theological reflection of my paper, I believe this passage relates to the “bigger” picture regarding the bible for a few reasons. First, God reveals himself in many ways through sin, as a state of our nature. He does so by associating punishment with sinful actions. As a result, we will always fail, thus, helping us realize the only hope is to turn to God with eternal love, grace, and mercy. Romans 6:23 bottom-lines it, “For the wages of sin is death

Mere knowledge of these precepts without application is foolishness, not wisdom. This paper will focus on the application of wisdom in regards to wealth and women.

vengeance?With the statements of the head of the Church on the theological aspect and Sayers and the author of this paper on the historical or biographical aspect, cruelty (which is a result of revenge) to the shades is perhaps the way of despising the sins corresponding to the various circles and sub-circles. On the other hand, taking into consideration the principle "the end does not justify the means", it seems that the end which is despising sin does not justify the means which is cruelty. However, if we consider the principle of greater good or double effect, we can conclude that the cruelty results to the pilgrim Dante's first step to conversion and the reader's understanding that sin

While we acknowledge the primacy of Scripture in theological reflection, our attempts to grasp its meaning always involve tradition, experience, and reason.

Similarly, Conrad, through Marlow, records "a burst of yells, a whirl of black limbs, a mass of hands clapping, of feet stamping, of bodies swaying, of eyes rolling..." (32). And then Conrad takes us the next step, as he allows Marlow to witness his own reflection in the wilderness and foreshadows the Jungian concept of shadow:They howled and leaped and spun, and made horrible

Chemical equilibrium is a crucial topic in Chemistry. To represent and model equilibrium, the thermodynamic concept of Free energy is usually used. For a multi-component system the Gibbs free energy is a function of Pressure, Temperature and quantity (mass, moles) of each component. If one of these parameters is changed, a state change to a more energetically favorable state will occur. This state has the lowest free energy. When the free energy of all states are equal to each other, the system is at equilibrium. The Heat that is relased or absorbed during a state change absorbed is known as latent heat.

Aura represents the originality and authenticity of a work of art that has not been reproduced. The Sistine Chapel in the Vatican is an example of a work that has been and truly a beacon of art. It has brought a benefit and enlightenment to the art of painting, and it has an exemplary aura that cannot be replaced. A picture taken of the Sistine Chapel is just an imaged “captured”, while the painting is still original, because it is not movable, and its cult value is still intact. He asserts that

The theory of psychological egoism is indeed plausible. The meaning of plausible in the context of this paper refers to the validity or the conceivability of the theory in question, to explain the nature and motivation of human behavior (Hinman, 2007). Human actions are motivated by the satisfaction obtained after completing a task that they are involved in. For example, Mother Teresa was satisfied by her benevolent actions and activities that she spent her life doing. As Hinman (2007) points out, she was likely to reduce in activity if she experienced any dissatisfaction in her endeavors.

Recommendation for leaders includes having regular meetings to address concerns, engage everyone in order to value their experiences, and encourage self-reflection. The arena of teaching and learning is stressful; staff should explore their feelings, doubts, and concerns to problem-solve. In addition, open communication, promote respect, and value the ideas of teachers and staff regardless of title in the organization for professional growth (Nolan, 2008). Each organization should have a mentoring program for first year teachers and create a support group for staff to be effective on retaining good teachers.
