One day in Sir Ryan’s Theology class

Yes sir, May I know how the Church started? Class, do you have any questions about our discussion?

The Christian Church actually started on the Day of Pentecost (50 days after the Passover during which Jesus was crucified). It was at this time that Peter gave his great sermon, and in response, "about 3,000 souls were added to them [the apostles]" (Acts 2:41). This group of believers was first called "the church" in Acts 2:47, as "God added to the church daily those who were being saved." Yes, He also told Peter “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of the heavens, and whatever you may bind on earth will be the thing bound in the heavens, and whatever you may loose on earth will be the thing loosed in the heavens.” (Mt 16:19)
Is it true that Jesus first prophesied the coming of the church when He spoke to Peter and declared, "On this rock I will build My church"? (Matthew 16:18).

Did that mean Jesus entrusted Peter the task on spreading the word of God and forming the Church?
The use of the word “key” in Jesus’ statement to Peter indicated that Peter would have the privilege of initiating a program of instruction that would open up special opportunities with respect to the Kingdom of the heavens. But it is not only them who have the responsibility to spread God’s word. We can also participate as part of the Christian Church. We could help by telling other’s the good news of the bible and that there exists a merciful God whom we should be thankful of.
I think that it is not only to Peter, but also to Jesus’ other apostles. Jesus appointed Peter as a somewhat leader that would lead the apostles in spreading the word.

Acts 2:42 could be considered a purpose statement for the church: “They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the…...

...Nancy J. Nabong AC 103 : MWF / 1:00 – 2:00 PM I. THE ELEMENTS OF DRAMA 1. PLOT * Most important element of a story: Summary of a play’s story, concerned with what happens in the story * The order of events occurring in a play is referred to as the plot of the drama. It is the basic storyline that is narrated through a play. The entertainment one derives from a play depends largely on the sequence of events that occur in the story. The logical connection between the events and the characters, which enact the story form an integral part of the plot of drama. 2. CHARACTER * These are the people presented in the play that are involved in the perusing plot.  Each character should have their own distinct personality, age, appearance, beliefs, socio economic background, and language. * The characters must be shaped to fit the needs of the plot and all parts the characterization must fit together. * Protagonist – the person who is attempting to resolve the problem. The conflict he faces, frequently involves a struggle with some force outside himself (external conflicts) as with an antagonist and or struggle within himself (internal conflict). 3. THOUGHT * What the play means as opposed to what happens (the plot).  Sometimes the theme is clearly stated in the title.  It may be stated through dialogue by a character acting as the playwright’s voice. Or it may be the theme is less obvious and emerges only after some study or thought. The...

...• Analyze the influence of global economic interdependence and the effect of trade practices and agreements. The global economic interdependence for corporate Toyota is very important in order to increase revenue sales by focusing on both purchasing vehicle parts and materials from specific countries and as well as in increasing market share in each region in where they do business. Toyota must also consider the targeting of specific groups and classes of people within a country because those groups may be dependent on the success of Toyota. The effect of trade practices and agreements play a major role in Toyota’s strategies and operations within the boundaries of countries. For instance, Toyota must consider different trade barriers, and agreements when pricing and developing marketing strategies for China compared to India compared to the United States. To address the recent quality issues and safety concerns Toyota established a Special Committee for Global Quality which had to be further separated into Regional Quality Task Force divisions for North America, Europe, China, Japan, and more (Toyota, 2010). • Examine the importance of demographics and physical infrastructure. The demographics and physical infrastructure of a country participate largely in the makeup of the magnetism to Toyota and the decision of how to structure the company’s presence and open manufacturing plants.

...not so beautiful to her anymore. After the death of Emily’s father, she seemed to be miserable, and just wanted her sweetheart to be there for her, and spend the rest of their lives together. Emily’s sweetheart was known to like men, and was not the marrying type. She went to a pharmacy to buy poison to kill her sweetheart, because she was under suspicion he was going to leave her, “I want poison. I want the best you have. I don’t care what kind.” After she bought the poison her sweetheart went missing, and her house began to have a bad stench. After Emily died they busted the door down that she kept closed for years, to find her sweetheart lying in the bed dead. “Then we noticed that in the second pillow was the indentation of a head. One of us lifted something…, we saw a long strand of iron-gray hair”. Emily slept with her sweetheart every night since the day she murdered him. The ending of the two stories were different, both resulted in deaths. I feel bad for Myop because she was an innocent little girl that literally walked into a dead body. I know it was devastating for her to see the dead body, and it changed her view on life. I do not feel bad for Emily because she murdered her sweetheart, and kept it from the town. She had no legit reason to kill him, and she slept with his body every night, since the day she killed him, which is disgusting and creepy....

...specific and narrow policy or be more broadly aimed at cultural change. To early scholars, collective action was inherently oriented towards change. Some of the earliest works on social movements were attempts to understand why people got caught up in collective action or what conditions were necessary to foment social movements. These works were rooted in theories of mass society. Mass society theory was concerned with the increasing industrialization of society, which many felt led to a sense of alienation among individuals as traditional social structures and support networks broke down. The study of social movements as specific social processes with specific patterns emerged from this field of study. Four Stages of Social Movements One of the earliest scholars to study social movement processes was Herbert Blumer, who identified four stages of social movements’ lifecycles. The four stages he described were: “social ferment,” “popular excitement,” “formalization,” and “institutionalization” (De la Porta & Diani 2006, p.150). Since his early work, scholars have refined and renamed these stages but the underlying themes have remained relatively constant. Today, the four social movement stages are known as: • Emergence, • Coalescence, • Bureaucratization, and • Decline. Although the term decline may sound negative, it should not necessarily be understood in negative terms. Scholars have noted that social movements may decline for several reasons and have identified five......

...Velma Johnson English 200-E81 July 5, 2014 “The Lottery” foreshadows and settings Shirley Jackson's “The Lottery”, this story filled with symbolism. The author uses symbolism to help her represent human nature as tainted, no matter how pure one thinks of himself or herself, or how pure their environment may seem to be. The story is very real in raising many questions about the pointless nature of humanity regarding tradition and violence. “The Lottery” clearly couriers Jackson's feelings concerning mankind’s evil nature hiding behind traditions and rituals. She shows how coldness and lack of compassion in people can exhibit in situations regarding tradition and values. Jackson presents the theme of this short story with a major use of symbolism. Symbolism shows throughout the setting of “The Lottery”, the objects, the people’s actions, and even in the time and the names of the lucky contestants. The setting of the story helps to magnify its impact on the reader because it is set in a small town similar to the one many of us may know of, and that is symbolic of everything that we consider to be right in America. The story begins on a magnificent summer day in a small town. The author describes the day as very joyful but strikes a contrast between the surroundings of the town and the atmosphere of the people gathered in the square. The atmosphere is sober, where the adults, stood together, away from the stones in the corner, and their “jokes were quiet and they smiled......

...Plotting a Course: Academic Planning Strategies The speaker at the event was Karen Cole; she is one of the advisers at Onestop. At this student success program she talked about planning our college future. She told us to get in contact with our advisor. She also discussed that we could declare our major if we wanted to our second semester of freshman year. We learned that there is a paper we have to get signed to declare our major, and that paper is on the UNCA website. We would just need to print out that piece of paper and get it signed by the department chair for our major. I learned about DegPar and how we could use “What if analysis” to see what classes we would need to take to graduate with a certain major or minor. She also told us about registration for class and how it opens up at 7am and closes at 10pm. One last thing that she talked to us about was how we should not get stressed out about classes and what we should take. She said that is what Onestop and our advisors are there for, to help us when we need it. Which Path Do I Take?

...transport workers. 2.1 Theoretical Framework This section explores the theoretical possibilities of defining exposure and risk, in the context of health risk behaviour by transport workers. There are differences in the ways these terms are defined or explained. In this study we shall be looking at the various independent variables resulting into road accident injuries to body and property which is the dependent factor in this study .These independent variables are already highlighted as the risk on the roads, the accidents occurrence, the vulnerability of the drivers to some of the road hazards and the unconscious exposures to some of these risks on the road.. An accident is generally defined, in this context, as an event in which at least one motor-vehicle was involved, that occurred on a public road and which resulted in injury. . This is the only method of recording motor accidents by the police also the definition mostly used by police forces to record an accident. . National differences exist in the definitions of accidents from country to country and the ways of recording the accident cases and injuries during the accidents and how they are usually recorded by police. They are sometimes registered according to the severity of the incidents or the injuries in the data base. Hakkert (2002) presents a neat account of the etymology surrounding the term accident, and goes on to define an accident as follows: “a short, sudden, and unexpected event or occurrence that results......

...socially desirable by the govt. (irrespective of society’s preference) however in a free market the G does not get involved and as such there will be a shortage of merit goods this is because of the characteristics of rivalry & excludability and so under the market economic system there may not be enough for everyone (rivalry) & the poor may not be able to afford it (excludability) so the govt. intervenes by providing it at a subsidized price, offer scholarships or free of charge to minimize the problem of excludability & built more public schools and universities to reduce the problem of rivalry To restrain the unfair use of economic power by monopolies although competition is a characteristic of the market economy, there can be cases where one or two firms dominate the market & are in the position to charge unnecessarily high prices to restrain this, the govt. may come up with regulations such as the Trade Practices Act (1974) in Australia. This is to ensure there will always be free and fair competition in the market To reduce external cost external cost is when the consumption or production of a good or service affects the third party negatively give e.g. under the market economy, external cost occur through indiscriminate production & over-production by profit motivated firms as there is no fear of any action being taken against them as there is no govt. intervention so to reduce external cost like pollution, the govt. needs to intervene & impose penalties or fines on......

...business intelligence with a view to determining a course of action. Executive information systems (EIS) originally emerged as computer-based tools to provide executives with easy access to strategic information and to support and enhance their information processing activities. This study is relevant to the research topic under consideration because it provides worthy arguments related to the role of agent-based or bespoke information systems in assisting the executive level employees of organisations in the intelligence phase of decision making. However, this research has a limitation that the sample size is only focused on the executives of organisations and authors have only explored the role of agent based information system and only in one phase of decisions making process and ignored the other whole process.
