Humanism’s Contribution To The Reformation : A 6 page paper discussing the role of humanistic thought in the Reformation.

Most of those would be incredulous to learn that humanism, far from being an arrogance of single human worth, was as a movement and attitude of believing that humans could be far more than they had been until the time toward the end of the Dark Ages. We know today that there are factions that agree only on few items aside from the basics of Christianity (i.e., Jesus is God’s Son), but today’s Christianity is largely based on the humanism that helped drive the Reformation more than 400 years ago.

Discussion Of Manna From Heaven As A Type Of Bread Of Life : 3 pages in length.

Plato’s Theory of Forms & Wittgenstein’s "Notion of Truth" : Plato’s Theory of Forms outlined in a number of his dialogues including "The Republic" and "Parmenides," is based in the perception of knowledge and the limitations of the senses. Plato recognized that man is limited by his sensory perception in an understanding of the natural of the world around him, and as a result, proposed the Theory of Forms in its initial sense to reflect a more complete understanding of the essential nature of the world based outside of the sensory and in the rational. Wittgenstein, in "Notion of Truth" also considers the comparison between the actual and the perceived, and evaluates truth both as a component of basic understanding and an element directly correlated to the physical world.

Near Death Experiences -- Are They Real ? : A 9 page research paper examining the validity of alleged Near Death Experiences (NDE). Since Raymond Moody coined the term with the publication of Life After Life in 1975, the entire issue has been under debate. Though some researchers maintain that the NDE is nothing more than a product of physiological changes the body undergoes when death is imminent, their scientific logic is found to be faulty. The body of knowledge surrounding the NDE is too vast to be dismissed because of our inability to clinically replicate the events encompassed by the NDE. That same inability does nothing to prevent the stars from existing and maintaining their positions, either. Those who have returned unshakably hold that their experiences were in fact very real, regardless of what some researchers want to say about those experiences. Thus, the writer of this paper makes a strong argument that NDEs are indeed, very real. Bibliography lists 9 sources. FREE Outline included. Nde.wps

Beginnings Of The Reformation : A 5 page paper discussing events and conditions leading to the beginning of the Reformation and Luther’s role in it, along with lasting cultural changes that accompanied the religious ones. Beyond his importance as a religious leader, Luther had a profound effect on Western culture. He is, paradoxically, the last medieval man and the first modern one, a political conservative and a spiritual revolutionary. His impact is most marked, of course, in Germany, where he laid the cultural foundations for what later became a united German nation. Before he translated the Bible from Latin to German, there was no unified German language, but only a series of Germanic dialects. Luther provided that language through his Bible translation.

John Bunyan’s "Pilgrim's Progress" : An 8 page essay that discusses how Bunyan used his book to reflect not only the religious arguments of his day but also the "political" and "everyman" characters behind the story--within both an individual and universal framework. The paper posits that the "little book" was, in fact, complex in its use of characterization, allegory and setting, and uses supporting evidence from Martin Luther, Erasmus, The Bible, and commentary from George Bernard Shaw and a number of other writers. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Bunyan.wps

Pilgrim’s Progress and 17th Century Protestantism : A 4 page essay which examines how John Bunyan exemplified radical seventeenth-century English Protestantism in his work, Pilgrim’s Progress.

McBrien & Catholicism : A 5 page paper discussing the book "Catholicism" by Richard McBrien. It is an extremely long and thorough examination of this particular religion. It is a religion that has been around for centuries and is one of the leading religions of the world. McBrien illustrates every conceivable, and inconceivable, aspect of this religion. The edition being discussed is the 1994 revised edition. It is a more than complete study of Catholicism as it details every possible aspect. No additional sources provided. Mcbrien.wps

Alcoholism / Sin .. Not A Disease? : A 26 page paper arguing that alcoholism, while manifesting physical symptoms and genetic changes, is not in itself a disease, but rather a sin. The genetic evidence that has been found quite likely is not the cause, but is rather the result of alcoholism, as those genetic defects have been found only in true alcoholics. While researchers are adept at describing the effects of other, less controversial, chemical compounds that arise and are manifested in changes of gene expression, they seem to be unable to apply the same methods of research to issues connected with alcoholism. Every recovering alcoholic who has been reconciled with his God, either through restitution of a prior relationship or his own first-time meeting understands the power of denial, and that denial of sin does nothing to diminish its existence. Bibliography lists 30 sources in 50 footnotes. Sindis.wps
