Summary - Comiskey (Chapters 2-4)
Summarizing the following three chapters of Joel Comiskey’s book, Biblical Foundations for the Cell-Based Church will prescribe a brief understanding of the trinity and its relationship to the image of God being created in man, and reinstituted through the work and person of Christ, the second person in the trinity.
“God’s Trinitarian Nature,” (Chapter 2)
God’s Trinitarian divine nature and character is revealed through theology, “the study of God” His ‘oneness’ is explicitly revealed, and His Trinitarian nature is implicitly revealed, yet equally true from His special revelation in scripture. The first reference to the Godhead being comprised of more than one is Gen. 1:26 where the plural ‘us’ is used; thereafter it is used multiple times. The triune nature of God reveals the foundation of his image being created in humanity with relational community characteristics, love being that which connects us with Him and each other. Scripture talks of one God (1 Cor. 8:6), and of those called unto Him being One in the Son, and we then “…become more like this one who came down to model his oneness and love with the Father and Spirit.” The trinity is critical to our understanding God and ourselves.
“The Family of God” (Chapter 3)…...

...largely unchanged, with the exception of the deleted paragraph near the end, and that is something to think about for the next paper. One of the best tools for revising for paragraph to paragraph organization is a reverse outline, which you can read about here: . The other thing to work on is making sure your main claim is as specific as possible, or at least as specific as the paper that follows. Most of your claims center around a child’s identification with the prince as a way of learning self-acceptance, and some specific information about that to clarify early on for a reader the kind of argument you are making about the tale will greatly help that reader follow the logic of your argument. Comments on draft: Tascha, you have a strong voice and some great analysis of PP here. You really seem to have taken to B’s approach, and are able to bring out the ways the tale could help reassure a child in ways that generate new insight about the tale. My main concern right now is that your organization is getting in the way of some of this analysis, particularly in the first half of your paper. I recommend in a marginal comment, but I’ll repeat it here, that instead of doing a plot summary and analysis simultaneously over the course of the paper, you begin with a simple plot summary and then organize the analysis in terms of ideas rather than narrative sequence. This will help you lead a reader through your ideas, and give you......

Analysis 1

...LIBERTY THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY ANALYSIS PAPER 2 DSMN 630 SMALL GROUP MINISTRY BY ELLIOT SANCHEZ NOVEMBER 8, 2013 Arnold has a novel idea of reproduction of oneself through small groups. The making of disciples should be the basis of small groups. The main theme of these chapters would be Matthew 28:16-20 “Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshipped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (NIV). The main method of making a disciple is not only to learn from someone but more importantly to see someone live it out. Jesus was the perfect example of this. Jesus taught His disciples with the love of His Father in everything He did. He showed his followers by living out what He spoke of. Much of what Arnold was stating in his writing was very similar to what Cominsky was writing about. One area I enjoyed about Arnold writings is found in the early church. I enjoyed the authors teaching on the early church and how they learned from each other multiplying by example. It is interesting to see the people of the early church spend all their time together. Acts 2:42-47......

...Analysis Paper 1 A situation in my work career, which I witnessed an action of moral gravity was when I walked in on people eating product without paying for it at my place of work. Moral Gravity is I was putting product back and a customer asked for my assistance, so I decided to try and help them. I tried helping them, but I couldn’t help them because I didn’t work in that department, so I looked for the produce associates and I found them eating product in the prep room. I was faced with a tough decision. I know they didn’t pay for the product because they tried to hide it behind something when I walked in on them. This meant that they stole the product from the store, so they could eat it. At the time I didn’t really know what was going on because I was young and it was my first job, so I didn’t really know if it was allowed or not. The right outcome that should of happened was I should have found a manager and reported the employees for stealing from the store. I should of found the manager because they knew what they were doing and they knew it was wrong because they tried to hide the salads from me, but I saw them eating it. However, I did what was considered wrong and ignored the situation and pretended I didn’t see anything. What I did is considered wrong because I knew they stole and I let them get away with it, all I did was pretended I didn’t see what they did. The stakeholders affected by this action are the company I worked for or anyone who has......

Paper 1

...Hello, this is my paper. The main purpose of studying finance is to gain an understanding of the financial performance of a company, corporation or industry. By looking at a company's financial performance, decisions can be made about many things by many different players. Corporations are rated by different agencies that examine financial records and potential for growth. Fitch ratings are a good example of this. My employer has an A++ Fitch rating. This high rating allows a non-profit company to borrow money at lower interest rates. In a publicly held company, which is one that has shareholders, the main concern is to keep the shareholders happy. Shareholders infuse corporations they believe in (usually based on financial performance) with capital. When a company is considered a poor financial risk, the public will not be in a hurry to buy its stock. So who is affected by finance? Shareholders, as mentioned previously, are the focus in publicly traded companies. They are not the only people who think about financials, however. The CEO, CFO and any other "C" position have accountability to report to the board about the financial performance of the company. Management is responsible for creating and maintaining both capital and operational budgets. Employees are required to maintain certain standards of productivity. Customers are affected by finances as well. Consider gas prices, and how increased costs in production are passed on to the consumer. When looking at a......

...Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary Analysis Paper 1 Submitted to Dr. Rod Dempsey In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Course Small Group Ministries DSMN 630-D01 By Erica Shelton March 30, 2014 Small groups are the proper environment to develop and grow disciples of Jesus. The purpose of a small group is to develop sacrificial, relational, transformed people who can continue the cycle of disciple development. Small groups must be intentional, individual and missional. There are five primary passages that can be used to form a small group ministry philosophy. Each of these passages have accompanying principles that we can apply to our small group ministries. Primary passages that form a small group ministry and the principles that are derived 1. The Great Commandment In Matthew 22:36-40, Jesus was challenged by one of the Pharisees: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” We show our love for God through worship, giving, putting him first. We show our love for others by caring and giving to the ‘neighbors’ in our spheres of influence. A small group is the best place to pull people into a circle where they can love God and others......

...Running head: CASE STUDY ANALYSIS PAPER 1: A TALE OF TWO COACHES Case Study Analysis Paper 1: A Tale of Two Coaches December 19, 2012 Bobby Knight is an American college basketball coach. He has the most coaching victories in NCAA men's basketball history. His 1975–76 Indiana University team had a perfect 32–0 record and went on to win the NCAA championship. He was the coach for the U.S. men's basketball team in 1984 and led them to Olympic gold. His temper was legendary and in 2000 he was fired from Indiana. (Bobby Knight Biography, 2012) Duke's Mike Krzyzewski is known as "Coach K”. He is known as “Coach K” to friends and admirers because "Krzyzewski" is hard to say and spell. He has the most notable record in college basketball. He has four national championships and has more wins than any other active men's basketball coach. Only Bobby Knight, who was his mentor from West Point, has more wins. (Zegers, n.d.) They are two of the most successful basketball in history. They share leadership styles, yet these styles are very different. Bobby Knight is an in your face type of coach. He uses fear and leads by using rewards and punishments. He uses tight supervision and control. Coach K believes in empowering his players and sets high goals and maintains standards. He leads with respect. He leads through personal power of being referent. Both coaches are passionate, disciplined, and competent in their jobs as a coach and care a lot for the players both on and......

There are reasons why this statement is to be considered as valid, and Comiskey notes that in understanding of the Trinity, Trinitarian doctrine indicates that the emphasis in on “life, love and movement within the Godhead.” Thomas F. Torrance writes concerning the Trinity that this doctrine is “foundational to Christianity, defines who we worship and serve, while guiding the church to practice love, care and unity.” If one studies the Trinitarian nature of God, what they will find is a relational aspect unfounded in a singular view of self. If as Scripture states that “The Son loves the Father and the Father loves the Son” (Jn. 3:35-36; cf. 5:20), then it stands to reason that God loves those (humankind)...

...Analysis Paper With divorce still on the rise in America, many researches want to know what kind of affect divorce is having not only the children in the middle of it but also the intimate partners these children have later in life. Elizabeth Mullet and Arnold L. Stolberg conducted a study to examine divorce and its impact on the intimate relationships of young adults. The purpose of the study was to look at how the divorce of one’s parents impacts the intimate relationships of young adults. This was assessed researching the difference in intimacy levels as well as positive and negative communication patterns. The researchers looked at four different types of couples to study; neither person experienced parental divorce, both partners experienced divorce, and only the man or the woman experienced divorce. Based on previous studies, Mullet and Stolberg wanted to know whether or not the level of intimacy and communication contributes to unsuccessful relationships in young adults who experienced their parents’ divorce. They believed a woman who has experienced parental divorce will have a higher level of negative communication. They also believed that relationships in which the man only experienced parental divorce would decrease likely hood of his divorce because the woman would be more likely to have better conflict resolution skills and the man can adapt to that. Regarding relationships where the man and woman did not experience their parents’ divorce, higher levels of......

DIPALERMO PROBLEM SOLVING THEORY GS1140 DECEMBER 9, 2014 Finding the Perfect Company to Work For I continue to look for the perfect company to work for. This is my worst reoccurring problem of my life. For the last ten years I have been from job to job never being satisfied with my status. I have had around fifteen different positions during that span of time. Ill-defining the Problem Through careful consideration and just plain stubbornness, I have came to the conclusion that my identification of the problem being finding the perfect company to work for is an ill-defined problem. So after that I must redefine the problem. Redefining the Problem Now that I am aware the problem of finding the perfect company to work for isn’t the actual problem. I asked myself what then is the true problem at hand. I asked my wife her opinion on the matter. “You won’t be happy till you find something that keeps you interested and gives you a sense of accomplishment.” Bingo, there it was starring me in the face. The true problem is that in order to enjoy working and be successful in the job place I must get an education. How defining the problem negatively affected my life If earlier in my life I had pursued an education I would be closer to retirement and I would......

...Analysis Paper 1 Jennifer Lincoln COUN 620 Liberty University March 29, 2015 In regards to key developmental aspects of human growth in my life and as I integrate Erickson’s eight stages of development into my 48 years of life, I found that many of my transitional tasks were delayed, or not developed according to Erickson’s time frame. This might be due to the dysfunctional lifestyle, neglected childhood and promiscuous teenage years I had and it has taken me many years to develop my sense of identity, my sense of intimacy, and to change my behavior (Feldman, 2011). In the argument of Piaget he says that children at the age of three to five years think abstractly and this affects their motor development (Boyd, 2006). The first ten years of my childhood was confused, isolated, and fearful. I lived with my grandparents and I never could understand why I wasn’t with my parents who were able to take care of my two oldest brothers. I was so tormented in my mind. The devil came in to steal, kill, and destroy me at an early age. I always felt as an outcast and I remembered other children making fun of me calling me names to where I isolated myself from them. My grandmother was a Christian and we went to church in which I loved church. We lived in the country on a farm and I did not like to go out in the open because of the children in the community making fun of me but we had to walk to church. I was afraid and always crying, hiding under......

Case Study Analysis Paper 1: a Tale of Two Coaches

...Case Study Analysis Paper 1: A Tale of Two Coaches Coach Bobby Knight and Coach Mike Krzyzewski are perhaps two of the best effective college basketball instructors in the United Sates. Nonetheless, their management types may perhaps not be beyond diverse. The question asked is, if it is beneficial to be loved or to be feared. Both of these coaches contained within these leadership viewpoints and involved the next significant theories: • Effective leaders recognize their specific expectations about human character. • By what method you manage (leadership style) is subjective to who you are (self-awareness) and the requirements of the position (situational awareness). Increasing your self- perception, ability to adapt, and situational awareness your leadership type amplifies your general array of efficiency as a lead. Bobby Knight, otherwise recognized as "The General," is the person in charge to coach the basketball team from Texas Tech University. He is a heated, aggressive individual who leads throughout intimidation and discipline, which several commentators say goes too far with his discipline. Knight was dismissed after a lengthy profession for the Indiana University because he griped an apprentice, and before that, he was recorded holding one of his team members by the collar. Afterwards, the disreputable occurrence in a match happened when Coach Knight threw a foldaway chair crossway the courtyard to object an arbitrator's decision. Mike Krzyzewski, better......

Paper 1

...Abstract The purpose of this discussion and analysis is to examine the aspects of exemplary leadership using the key points addressed by Colquitt, Lepine, and Wesson (2011) in Organizational Behavior: Improving Performance and Commitment in the Workplace. The focus of the analysis is that of a candidate and a campaign manager on their political endeavors to win an election. Strategies such as legitimate power, ethical leadership, consultative decision-making, and transformational leadership will all be examined to provide further insight into how effective leadership can positively influence job performance and commitment. The result of the findings will prove that the methods and styles used are the most efficient for someone in this type of leadership position. Required Individual Analytical Report Introduction This analytical paper discusses an example of exemplary leadership used in a political setting. The use of legitimate power was the driving force for leadership and helped overcome contingency factors such as substitutability, centrality, and visibility. Rational persuasion was used to drive point’s home and positively influence individuals while ethical leadership gained the trust and respect of supporters. This example of transformational leadership will be analyzed and reflected upon to provide insight into the most effective form of leadership. Context The leadership example used analyzes the strategies and techniques of a campaign manager and local......
