    The Golden Compass Controversy

    The older I get, the more it is clear to me that the popular euphemism, “History repeats itself,” is one of the few sayings; ubiquitously popping up is every history class at one time or another; to be absolutely true. Oftentimes something outrageous or controversial hearkens this saying to our lips. For instance, the McCarthy era of the1950s saw people eager to �name names’ of suspected Communists in Hollywood royalty. This seems vaguely similar in

    The Golden Ladder

    The Golden Ladder The Golden Ladder was, thus far, the most interesting presentation for me. I attended the event with my boyfriend, who, like the main character, has a father who is Jewish and a mother who is Presbyterian.

  • The Good and Just Life

    The Good and Just Life

    The Good and Just Life Being “just”, by the dictionary definition, is being consistent with what is morally right; and righteous. But “morally right” and “righteous” are subjective terms, therefore differing from one person to the next. So a “just” society is “just” to that person itself, although it might be in line with a larger school of thought. My view of a just society would fit in with most other people, maybe because of

    The Gospel of Mark

    Jesus Christ lived a very full, if short, life. He did and accomplished more in his thirty years than many men do in twice that. The gospels each tell their versions of his life. Of the four, I found the gospel of Mark to be the most interesting. I enjoy the style of writing in this gospel more than the others. I feel it gives a better summary of the events in Christ’s life.

    The Great Controversy According to Young Goodman Brown

    In our own Christian struggles, people tend to believe that it is simple as good evil. People don't realize however that in this fight, the Devil can infiltrate a seemingly normal, Christian Human Being, but it's true. Better yet, in our own walk with God the Devil lurks near to test what might look like a strong relationship with Christ. As shown in Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Young Goodman Brown," even a grounded, sincere Christian can have
