Living With Tiny Aliens: The Image Of God For The Anthropocene [Table Of Contents], Adam Pryor 2020 Fordham University

Living With Tiny Aliens: The Image Of God For The Anthropocene [Table Of Contents], Adam Pryor

Religion

Astrobiology is changing how we understand meaningful human existence. As astrobiologically aware human beings, we must confront our deepened anxiety arising in the face of our own contingency—realizing how deeply tethered we are to the moments this pale blue dot exists in the universe. At the same time, our astrobiological awareness is opening a horizon to the exciting possibility of understanding our humanity in relation not only to a planet burgeoning with life, but a cosmos pregnant with living-possibilities.

Touching upon both these issues, this work provides an approach to astrobiological humanities: helping figure expressive modes by which human ...

Partnering with Faith Communities: Challenges of Religious and Secular Literacy

While many scholars have noted the necessity of a grasp of the complexity of religious belief for engagement in international relations, human rights, and humanitarian work, the topic of religious belief remains fraught and underdeveloped in human rights activism. Concerns include the conviction that religion must be treated as private in order to preserve an inclusive public life; evidence that religious communities may oppose the human rights' groups commitments on LGBTQI and women's rights; and anxieties that various religious groups will exclude or manipulate those who are not members ...


The Definition And Function Of Markan Intercalation As Illustrated In A Narrative Analysis Of Six Passages, Tom Shepherd 2019 Andrews University

The Definition And Function Of Markan Intercalation As Illustrated In A Narrative Analysis Of Six Passages, Tom Shepherd

Thomas Shepherd

Intercalation of stories is a stylistic feature of the Gospel of Mark which has been recognized in scholarly research since the early twentieth century. However, two problems have not been satisfactorily solved in relation to intercalation in Mark. The first is obtaining a focused definition of this storytelling pattern. The second is to explain its function in the Markan story.

The purpose of the current research was to resolve these two questions by a narrative analysis of six passages commonly accepted as illustrating intercalation. The six passages are Mark 3:20-35; 5:21-43; 6;7-32; 11:12-25; 14:1-11; and ...


Toward An Adventist Theology Of Refugees, Nicholas Miller, Janna Quetz 2019 Andrews University

Toward An Adventist Theology Of Refugees, Nicholas Miller, Janna Quetz

Nicholas Miller

"The Bible encourages God’s people to help immigrants, and does not leave it up to just the state, but says the people of God should personally help them. Whatever path is taken in the future it is important to keep in mind that Christ calls us brothers, and we too should call the sojourner within our gates brother. Immigration policy is complex, and there may be no clear guidance from God’s Word on parts of it. But whatever policies are arrived at, the Christian has a role to advocate for the creation and implementation of a humane and ...

Religious Nonviolence: An Analysis Of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., And Thich Nhat Hanh, Meghan Campbell 2019 Western Michigan University

Religious Nonviolence: An Analysis Of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., And Thich Nhat Hanh, Meghan Campbell

The Hilltop Review

This paper will look at the role religion played in shaping the individual movements of Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Thich Nhat Hanh.

“History is the long and tragic story of the fact that privileged groups seldom give up their privileges voluntarily…. we know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed” -Martin Luther King, Letter from Birmingham Jail.

“Under a government that imprisons unjustly, the true place for a just man is also prison” -Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience.

“All violence is injustice. Responding to violence ...


The Nature And Work Of The Holy Spirit In The Pentateuch, Richard Davidson 2019 Andrews University

The Nature And Work Of The Holy Spirit In The Pentateuch, Richard Davidson

Richard M. Davidson

The Hebrew word ruakh refers to the divine Spirit some sixteen times in fifteen verses of the five books of Moses, and the Holy Spirit is also prefigured in several Pentateuchal passages dealing with typological aspects of the sanctuary services. Each of these passages contains profound insights into the nature and work of the Holy Spirit. It is the thesis of this study that all of the major aspects of the biblical doctrine of the Holy Spirit are set forth, at least in nascent form, in the foundational divine revelation which comprises the Torah. We will examine each of these ...


Justification By Faith According To The Old Testament: In The Footsteps Of The Reformers, Richard Davidson 2019 Andrews University

Justification By Faith According To The Old Testament: In The Footsteps Of The Reformers, Richard Davidson

Richard M. Davidson

Martin Luther asserted that “if we lose the doctrine of justification, we lose simply everything.” Luther believed that justification is “the article with and by which the church stands, without which it falls.” In the preface to his Forty-Five Theses drawn up in 1537, Luther makes this impassioned plea: “The article of justification is the master and prince, the lord, the ruler, and the judge over all kinds of doctrines; it preserves and governs all Church doctrine and raises up our conscience before God. Without this article the world is utter death and darkness.” John Calvin considered the doctrine of ...


Power Or Person: Nature Of The Holy Spirit, JoAnn Davidson 2019 Andrews University

Power Or Person: Nature Of The Holy Spirit, Joann Davidson

Jo Ann Davidson

Scripture is the primary source for any knowledge of the God of heaven—and when dealing with issues of divinity, it must be studied attentively and listened to carefully. Within its sacred pages God reveals Himself with a triune identity. The nature of the biblical God cannot be fully explained without God the Holy Spirit, along with Jesus and the Father. God’s personal plurality, seen throughout Scripture, presents One of the Three of the divine Godhead as the Holy Spirit. Because the Spirit has never been incarnated as Jesus was, He is more inscrutable, making, to a greater extent ...

A Man Of One Book: John Wesley's Theology Of Scripture, Hope V. Dornfeld 2019 Liberty University Online

A Man Of One Book: John Wesley's Theology Of Scripture, Hope V. Dornfeld

Diligence: Journal of the Liberty University Online Religion Capstone in Research and Scholarship

As the founder of Methodism and the Wesleyan tradition, John Wesley is a key theological figure. However, one area of his thought remains murky: his theology of Scripture. A rousing scholarly debate exists today concerning Wesley's views on biblical characteristics as well as some issues of interpretation. This paper will seek to determine by analysis what John Wesley believed about the Bible and how these beliefs influenced his life, ministry, and teachings.
