Kingdoms and Cultures
Oscillatory has exercised vast inspiration by what method we abstract the link among Christianity and philosophy. The situation has converted several societies’ circumstances to vision their culture of resistance to foremost characteristics of the common philosophies as rather of which to be humiliated, as well as rather that desires to remain rejected with the intention to convert traditionally liable. Niebuhr debates that Yoder’s forceful analysis of his book has not been offered the extensive revelation it justifies, particularly his reason that Niebuhr's situation is vitiated with a fragile Christology plus an abuse of the policy of the Triad. Niebuhr has initiated vast misperception into the argument by considering the Christ against Culture method as principle imperfect, while the subject remains his personal situation that advances from “Nicene orthodoxy” (Carter, 2003).
Culture comprises of the traditions, knowledge, ability, conducts and community relationships that a culture develops. Culture is the contextual in which all individual predictably their daily existence (Atkinson, 1995). The delinquent of “Oscillatory” is generally engaged to define the connection concerning Christians and the fundamental culture in which we reside (GCU, lecture). On the other hand, this disguises a significant opinion: similar when Christians discard their immediate culture, culture itself endures the average of their presence as they generate a Christian culture this essay focuses on “Yoder's and Niebuhr's views, respond to the aforementioned question? And was the "Christian situation before God" decided by Christ's sacrifice? Why or why not ’’ (GCU, Lecture).

The Kingdom of Mali

...The Kingdom of Mali Prior to the emergence of the Kingdom of Mali, under the leadership of Sundiata of the Keita clan, after the decline of its predecessor Ghana, Mali had had a succession of strong leaders. It also had established strong regional trade links. The ancient Malian kingdom of Jenne-Jeno was reputed by archaeologists to have its roots in and around 200 Years BC. Mali only began to lose its power and influence in the 16th Century. Prior to its eventual collapse it was the second largest state in the world after the Asiatic Mongol Empire. Jenne’s strategic position made it an important crossroads for both north and south trade. Highly crafted fragments of pottery, iron work and jewelry have been discovered in the region. This makes it highly likely that there were imports of iron ore, stone grinders and beads into Mali. Also the origins of Mali lie in the Mandinka people who originally lived in the upper reaches of the Niger and Senegal rivers. They lived in small villages which were called Dugu. The chiefs of each village called themselves Dugutigi. These villages by the end of the 12th Century had formed themselves into the state of Kangaba. With the breakup of the Ancient Kingdom of Ghana, partly caused by raids led by the Almoravid Berbars from the north coupled with dwindling gold supplies at around the start of the 12th Century, smaller states such as Tekrur and Sosso competed to fill the power basin left in regions west of the Upper Niger. One of the main......

The Kingdoms

...Cynthia Decker Bio-101 Andrew Walsh August 3, 2013 The Prokaryotic Kingdoms The first kingdom I would like to talk about in the Prokaryotic Evolution is the Bacteria Kingdom. There are many different bacteria in this world, some are bad which cause sickness and disease and some, surprisingly, can be beneficial in today’s world. First, let’s take a look at some bad bacteria, and what can happen when we come across it. There are bacteria and other organisms that cause disease, and they are called pathogens .Most of the time, our bodies can keep the pathogens that we are regularly exposed to in check. Our immune system is amazing at this. Once in a while our body’s defense system become compromised and will fail, maybe when we don’t get the vitamins and minerals that we need. Toxic overload (prescription medicines, cleaning fluids, insecticides, hairspray etc.),not enough sleep, too much stress, old age, too much exposure to the sun, too much physical exertion, or the wrong diet could all lower our immune system. ("A Weak, or Strong Immune System,” 2007) That is when bacteria could creep in and set up house in our bodies. Even some bacteria that we normally carry without causing us harm can gain strength and over run us if we are not careful. A bacterium makes us sick when they become too strong and secrete a poison called Exotoxins. An example of a Bacteria pathogen is too often see is Salmonella. A more common lay term for......

Separate Kingdoms

...Valerie Laken’s “Separate Kingdoms” is written using many visual strategies and different points of view in order to paint a better mental picture to her readers. She writes this short story in a way that is unique and in a form that is uncommon. Laken structures her story in a way that allows her to write it from two different perspectives, giving the reader a clearer understanding and a more in-depth look at the feelings of each of the characters. The two perspectives are in two different columns. Another unique strategy she uses in the story is combining the two perspectives. Each column is a different perspective, one being from the point of view of Colt and the other being his son, Jack. Another stylistic difference is that Laken keeps the sentence going across both columns in order to create the sense that both characters are experiencing an event in the same period of time. By using these different techniques, Laken is able to write a compelling story and really catch the attention of her readers. The main strategies of her book are used to not only catch the attention of the reader but to help the reader understand, in a deeper sense, what is going on, how the characters are feeling and how they relate to one another. One of these main strategies that is repeated throughout the story is that every action has a reaction. Colt never truly admits that he was the one that disabled the safety locks on the machine, but nonetheless, Colt still used the machine knowing that...

Three Kingdoms of Korea

...Three Kingdoms Period of Korea The Three Kingdoms period of Korea is an important part of world history. This research paper will describe the three kingdoms of Korea, from 57 Before Common Era until 688 Common Era into the Unified Silla Kingdom period. The history and art from these periods will be discussed in order to show the impact it has had on the Korean culture. This paper will show the Influence China had when the Koreans created their empire and works of art. The Three Kingdoms period of Korea began in 57 BCE due, in part, to the Chinese occupation of the western peninsula. There were many tribes in Korea, prior to 100 BCE, when the Chinese fought and gained control of the western peninsula. The strongest of all the Korean tribes were migratory hunters known as the Koguryo tribe. (Korean Enigma, 2004). The Koguryo tribe was a difficult adversary for the Chinese and made it difficult to for them to keep their stronghold. The Chinese were forced to leave their three outposts in Korea, giving the territory back to the Koguryo tribe. The Koguryo tribe overtook the Chinese, Okcho and Ye tribes, and incorporated them into their own. The powerful Koguryo tribe continued battling the Chinese and eventually conquered half of Manchuria. (Korean Enigma, 2004). The Han Tribes also occupied Korea during this period. With the defeat of the Chinese, the Hans branched out and formed two separate kingdoms, Paekche and Silla. The Three Kingdoms of Korea included Koguryo,......

African Kingdoms

...1 African Kingdoms I. General Overview a. The single most important development in the history of northwestern Africa was the use of the camel as a transport vehicle. In ancient times, the Egyptians and Carthaginians engaged in just a trickle of commercial trade with west Africa, even though west Africa was rich in gold, precious metals, ivory, and other resources. b. The reason for this was the imposing barrier of the Sahara, which in Arabic simply means "The Desert." Around 750 AD, under the influence of Islamic peoples, northern and western Africans began to use the camel to transport goods across this forbidding terrain. c. Camels do several things exceptionally well: they can carry unbelievably heavy loads for impossibly long distances and they can keep their footing on sandy terrain. It was as if someone had invented sand ships and its effect on western African culture was just as profound as if they were sand ships. d. The most important developments occurred in the Sahel area just south of the Sahara; the Sahel provided southern terminal points for the goods being shipped across the Sahara. The Sahel is a dry, hot area with fertile areas and grasslands; all of the major north African kingdoms grew up in this area: Ghana, Mali, Songhay, and Kanem-Bornu: the Sahelian kingdoms.

Kingdom of Aksum

...Theresa Gbekia Mr. Riemers World history 20/October/ 2013 The kingdom of Aksum lasted for about eight, hundred years. The kingdom's unremitted location allowed easy access to areas across the red sea, into the Indian Ocean and beyond. This remarkable kingdom was one of the first civilizations in the continent of Africa. Although Aksum had influential customs regardless the kingdom was found off of its indigenous African heritage, having created their mixed ethnicities/customs, a writing system, money currency and religion. Aksum was mostly populated with the indigenous Africans. It was long after the development of Aksum had there been any mixture of other ethnicity. The expansion of Aksum also welcomed other races and people. For example the people of southern Arabia were conquered by Aksum, the different races mix along with the rest of the other ethnicity Aksum took over in the African lands such as the Cushitic speaking people and Nilo-Saharan speaking people. With prove according to the book, the heritage of the world civilization, the people of Aksum are product of genetic mixing of southern Arabia and the first there indigenous African that were already there. It is apparent that the Ethiopian and Entrain look like mixed breed compare to other African nations. In result of this many people disregard Ethiopian and Entrant’s civilization as an African civilization but consider the fact that Aksum was long before any Arab arrival.

Kingdom of Life

...organisms. Today, taxonomists use the following categories of classification: species, genus, family, order, class, phylum and kingdom. Recently, a higher taxonomic category, the domain, has been added to this list.Kingdom is the second highest taxonomic rank below domain. It is divided into categories called phyla, each phylum is divided into classes, each class into orders, each order into families, each family into genera, and each genus into species. Living organisms are subdivided into 5 major kingdoms, including the Monera, the Protista, the Fungi, the Plantae, and the Animalia. Each kingdom is further subdivided into separate phyla or divisions. Generally "animals" are subdivided into phyla, while "plants" are subdivided into divisions.  Organisms in any given Kingdom maybe separated from organisms in any other Kingdom by many hundreds of millions, if not billions, of years of evolution.

The Kingdom of God

...A STUDY ON THE KINGDOM OF GOD A PROJECT SUBMITTED TO DR. JOEL AJAYI IN PARTIAL FULFILLMENT OF THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE COURSE OBST 592 OLD TESTAMENT ORIENTATION II BY JAMES D. PERKINS Student ID: 3437129 LOUISVILLE, KY 5 OCTOBER, 2012 08 Fall 08 Fall Introduction The angel Gabriel visited the Virgin Mary and heralded one of the most debated and controversial eschatological statements in all of Scripture. "With breathtaking brevity, in one vast, glorious, revelation Gabriel succinctly summarized the entire ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ". There was nothing theologically new in the angel's announcement for much of it had been the subject of the Old Testament prophets, yet there is little agreement among scholars regarding its fulfillment. Gabriel, having come from the presence and glory of God (Luke 1:19), no doubt relayed the words of God in precise detail: "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end" (Luke 1:30-33 ESV). These words would have rung with Messianic overtones to any Jewish person living at that time, and Mary probably understood this to mean the inauguration of the anticipated Jewish...

Jesus Kingdom

...Kingdom Essay Taylor Downey Grand Canyon University: BIB 354 1/29/2015 Kingdom Essay Within scripture and the gospels, Jesus was an incredible teacher and preached the good news of the kingdom of God to those around Him in his ministry. In the Gospels, he is called teacher more than 40 times, which proves that he was truly an influential figure and people hung to every word he spoke. Within his words and teachings, he talks about a variety of topics such as love, forgiveness, and purity. However, the big picture for Jesus as a teacher was speaking truth and pointing people towards the coming of the Kingdom of God. The majority of what he spoke on centered on this idea of kingdom, which showed the many characteristics of the Kingdom. How Jesus Taught The material to which Jesus taught was very impactful, but they way he delivered it and taught was truly unlike any other. Jesus was know for using parables within his lessons because of the audience he dealt with and the resistance he might face. The best way to fight the resistance was to teach in a way that broke through potential hostility within listeners while teaching on dangerous topics (Stein, 1996). The beautiful thing about the way that Jesus taught was before his listeners could resist what he was saying, he already got his point across and it was received because of the parables in which he used. An example of this would be in Luke chapter 13 verse 18 and 19 when he uses the phrase “like a mustard seed”......

The Kingdom Anticipated

...LIBERTY UNIVERSITY BAPTIST THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY Journal Article Critique of Mosert, Christiann “The Kingdom Anticipated: The Church and Eschatology” Vol. 13, No 1 (Jan 2011): 25-37 Submitted to Dr. Lee Mitchell in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the completion of THEO 510 Survey of Theology by Willie E. Kilpatrick August 1, 2015 Contents Introduction……………………………………………………………………………………1 Brief Summary…………………………………………………………………………………1 Critical Interaction……………………………………………………………………………..1 Conclusion………………………………………………………………………………………3 Bibliography…………………………………………………………………………………….4 Introduction The purpose of this article was to show how the church is an eschatological community that is closely connected to the kingdom of God; however, that understanding of the church’s role hasn’t been prominent in recent ecclesiology. The contents of the article contain the central features that characterize the eschatological concept of ‘anticipation’; the church is seen as an anticipatory symbol of the forth coming kingdom of God. Those characteristics are found in the celebration of the Eucharist, its pastoral services, mission and political associations. Christiaan Mostert argues that “the early Christian community understood its own existence in eschatological terms, as the vestibule of God’s reign.” Brief summary Mosert asserts that the initial development of the......

...Kingdom of God Dr. Pat Francis Dustin William Hall September 8th 2011 Introduction In a kingdom there are kings and queens, princes and princess's and all kinds of other royalty figures. To the common person access to the royal people and the royal property is not allowed. To capture and take hold that we we're born with royalty in our spiritual bloodline and that the God that sent HIS only begotten son not only wanted us to receive the free gift of salvation but wanted us in his royal family is astonishing. God not only wants us to be blessed but he wants us to accept the benefits of being in the royal family. Kingdom of God I have the ability to be so attractive. The kingdom of God is something that when placed inside of our hearts makes us attractive to those around us. We posses the solutions to the modern day questions. We walk with something that all mankind will react too because God created all in HIS image and are allow subject to HIS creativity entity. With the kingdom of God reigning in our hearts we allow the invisible kingdom to take reign and allow an everlasting kingdom to begin to open up opportunities for us. Opportunities like establishing that which was rightfully the LORDS back to HIM. The world has established it's kingdom and is in pursuit of capturing the sons and daughters of light. When we realize that we have the kingdom of God within us, we can begin to take authority over the kingdoms that threaten God's. The......

United Kingdom

...UNITED KINGDOM GEOGRAPHY OF UNITED KINGDOM  The United Kingdom (UK) is located just west of the mainland of Europe. It is made up of several islands, the largest of which is Great Britain. Great Britain is made up of Scotland in the north, England in the southeast and Wales in the southwest. Northern Ireland is the northwestern part of Ireland, a separate island nation just west of Great Britain, but it is also part of the UK. There has been violence in Northern Ireland for centuries because of religious and political conflict there. Because ocean waters surround the UK, it has a mild, rainy climate. The country's farmers produce about 60 percent of the food the UK needs. From 1980–90 the farming became more mechanized, with farmers using machinery to plant and harvest crops. The productivity of UK farms increased during that period by about 10 percent. More farmers raise livestock than crops, and some of the world's best beef and lamb is raised in the UK  Location: Western Europe Land Area: 241,590 sq km British Coastline: 12,429 Km Regions in United Kingdom: England: 47 boroughs, 36 counties, 29 London boroughs, 12 cities and boroughs, 10 districts, 12 cities, 3 royal boroughs Northern Ireland: 24 districts, 2 cities, 6 counties Scotland: 32 council areas Wales: 11 county boroughs, 9 counties, 2 cities and counties Bordering Countries to United Kingdom: Republic of Ireland History and Food  The United Kingdom (UK) has also been called the......
