In conclusion, Balthasar’s work can be used to answer the questions of freedom. Balthasar’s analyzations are significant for theology when it comes to questioning if we surrender ourselves entirely or how we can go up to God if he hasn’t come down to us. I personally do not think that we will ever find out when humanity with its freedom will end being an open question mark.

MARRIAGE & DIVORCE: THE PERSPECTIVES OF CHURCH AND MODERN SOCIETY
C THL 101- Theology
Professor Tom Park
November 17, 2017
What do you perceive marriage to be? For example, do you see marriage as a contract? A gift? A union? Approximately ninety-six percent of all Americans will eventually marry, and of those ninety-six percent about forty percent, will get divorced.[footnoteRef:0] Marriage, in legal terms, is the union of a couple of spouses; however, that can mean anything. The legal name does not go in depth about what marriage is: whether there are love and commitment between two people, just companionship and physical needs, or all of those

After the Holocaust, many different revisionists, who are historians labeled as so after they criticised the Pope. People who support the Pope are saying that these so-called revisionists are out of their realm. The claims that started this battle are all about the controversy of the Pope’s role in saving Jews in World War II. These two groups have been going at it for over 75 years. However, there have been many estimates that the Pope actually saved many more people than even Schindler. However, the estimates vary greatly. These revisionists are inspired by the play “The Vicar” by Rolf Hochhuth. The play makes many accusations towards the Pope, and many historians say that these are untrue

The Dark and Divine
In the Anatomy of the Sacred by James C. Livingston, Livingston states that sacred power is the ultimate object of religion, and can be present in nature in any object, person or spiritual being when it is approached in awe, fear or joy or perceived as the source of purity or danger[footnoteRef:1]. A person withholding this sacred power would be religiously seen as a deity or divine being. Throughout the Harry Potter series, JK Rowling establishes Voldemort as a sort of deity. This is shown through the Death Eaters treatment of Voldemort as a divine figure, by kissing his robes, and begging for mercy for the sins of faithlessness and apostasy[footnoteRef:2]. Rowling

I will be writing my personal insights about Jesus' leadership through this book. I will use the seven principles of Gene Wilkes in his book called "Jesus on Leadership. There is greatly to applaud in Wilkes re-examination of “Jesus on leadership.” The refocusing on Christian leadership as essential service seeks to obtain the heart of Jesus’ message and example as the Suffering Servant. Wilkes presses the key aspects of Jesus’ leadership style in seven principles: one is "Humble Your Heart," two "First Be a Follower," three "Find Greatness in Service," four "Take Risks," five "Take up the Towel," six

The Importance and Unimportance of the German Reformation in Mission Work of the European Church
Reformation started in 16th century in response to the doctrines and practices taught by the medieval Roman Catholic church (Shelley, 2013, p.247). According to Shelley (2013, p.250), the tradition of the church and its doctrine of salvation permitted a structure of indulgences to evolve. Derived from the idea that Jesus and the saints had made a storehouse of righteousness that can be apportioned with Christians, initially indulgence was used as a sanction by the church in the society (Shelley, 2015, p.251). However, over time the advantages of the indulgence were extended to involve

The Christian issue of whether salvation is exclusive only to people who have heard the Bible or exposed to the Christian community has been viewed differently by Catholics and Evangelicals. Catholics tend to have a more tolerant perspective while still holding on to the importance of Christian teachings while Evangelicals carry a more exclusivist or doubtful view.The Vatican II series of Catholic bishop meetings in the 1960s established what would be the obtaining position of the Roman Catholic Church towards other religions. Variously termed as the theology of inclusivism or fulfillment, this Catholic position affirms the validity of the other religions based on the rays of truth and

This suggestion is very well endorsed by Paul Enns when he says that, “The Edenic Covenant or Covenant of Works can be found in the opening chapters of Genesis where God makes some conditional promises to Adam. The Edenic Covenant is not explicitly called a covenant in Genesis; however, it is later referred to as a covenant in Hosea 6:7, ‘But like Adam they transgressed the covenant; there they dealt faithlessly with Me’ (ESV).”[footnoteRef:2] [2: The Moody Handbook of Theology by Paul Enns. ]

through the descriptions of Jonsen, Engelhardt, and Garrett. In Jonsen’s text, The Birth of
Bioethics, he explains how many individuals were concerned with the old tradition of medical
ethics; it was believed to be too frail in regards to matching up with the ethical challenges
presented by the new sciences and technologies. Similarities in Engelhardt's text, Foundations of
Christian Bioethics, describe how reflections on medicine became the focus of whole works and
began to continue a subdiscipline of moral theology. The sense of moral probity was involved in

The main conflict in the eleventh century is between those who see theology as little more than Bible commentary and those who feel that rational analysis and argument was needed. The first group argued that God was such a mystery, so intellectually inaccessible, that we could hope to talk about him at all only in the symbolic language he himself had graciously given us for that purpose. Nor could we expect to get beyond that language, to infer other truths from it by reason. On the contrast we have a second division of this time that sees God as friendly and sensible and believes there must be reason and rational behind faith. During this time period we see the development of Neoplatonic

During this time, land-owning nobles grew increasingly resentful of the Church, which had amassed an enormous amount of power and wealth and exploited a huge number of resources at the expense of the nobles.

This education and their dedication to the Roman Catholic Church formed a very effective group of missionaries.The religious tensions

who argued that infinite regress could not exist in the actual world. However, this is
incorrect and thus fails as mathematicians , such as Cantor and Hilbert, proves that
the theory of actual infinite is possible.
The second way:
The argument for causation fails due to the fact that some things in the world are
not caused. The second way states that everything that exists has a cause, and each
cause in turn has a cause. But there is a first cause and this first cause is God. This
means there is either an infinite regress of causes or there must be a first cause.

This dichotomy leads to deep conflicts over the definition of women's sexuality and social roles and divides Christians, often in the same churches."

Amen…” (Martel, 148). Martel touches on the importance of a healthy relationship with God in times of desperation or mourn.

Even Hamlet, who perceives Claudius in the play as a ‘Remorseless, treacherous,

that ‘The play’s the thing/Wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the King’. Claudius is not
merely a ‘satyr’ but, in terms of Elizabethan theology, he does have a ‘rational soul’, the soul
which separates Man from the animal kingdom. Furthermore, Hamlet’s attempt to trap

Even though his work was unfinished at the time of his death, his ideas were brought into the theology of the church, giving Christianity a genuine intellectual and rational foundation. Aquinas' work influenced the philosophical climate of the day and gave reason a legitimate place in Christian theology. One of Thomas's most important proofs is based on the idea that all movement has a cause. For a body to move, there must be something to cause the movement.
