Christian Movies My wife and I enjoy watching Christian Movies more so in the evenings after service. We particularly like those that have a great Christian moral tied to them. Overtime, we have watched many of these mentioned here but these are those that have stood out and I would recommend them to you. They are actually a starting point for a conversation if you have family and friends visiting and you would like all to relax and view a blessed film. Personally, I believe that Christian Movies or Christian Films are both a tool for education and evangelism. Again have them in your library. Declaration against interest Declarations against interest are an exception to the rule on hearsay in which a person's statement may be used, where generally the content of the statement is so prejudicial to the person making it that she would not have made the statement unless she believed the statement was true. The Federal Rules of evidence limit the bases of prejudices to the declarant to tort and criminal liability. Some states, such as California, extend the prejudice to "hatred, ridicule, or social disgrace in the community."
Thy Word is Truth The new release of the major Hollywood film Noah has created a deluge of reactions both inside and outside the Christian community. Some notable religious leaders have praised the $160 million biblical epic, while others have misgivings about the aggressive pushing of radical environmentalism featured throughout the film. However, the thing that might be most controversial about this movie is its attempt to radically redefine the character of God and the events that led to the destruction of earth. We've been paying close attention to the reviews of this film from both Christian and non-Christian critics alike.
The True Heaven - Review and Giveaway Ever really wonder what heaven will be like? We will all come to the end of our lives at some point and only two choices will remain where we will go from there, either heaven or hell depending on your beliefs. But what do we really know about heaven and where do we gain that information from?The people who die and return with glimpses of what the afterlife holds for us or do we look to God's Word, the Bible to see what His promises are? Joe Beam and Lee Wilson took an extensive study into the Bible to look at what The True Heaven really looks like.
Moral particularism Moral particularism is the view that there are no moral principles and that moral judgement can be found only as one decides particular cases, either real or imagined. This stands in stark contrast to other prominent moral theories, such as deontology or utilitarianism. In the former, it is asserted that people have a set of duties (that are to be considered or respected); in the latter, people are to respect the happiness or the preferences of others in their actions. 4 Keys to Hearing God - You Can Hear God's Voice! You Can Hear God's Voice! By Mark and Patti Virkler Get this article in PDF: 4 Keys to Hearing God's Voice I tossed and turned in bed, unable to fall asleep.

Marriage Marriage, also called matrimony or wedlock, is a socially or ritually recognized union or legal contract between spouses that establishes rights and obligations between them, between them and their children, and between them and their in-laws. The definition of marriage varies according to different cultures, but it is principally an institution in which interpersonal relationships, usually sexual, are acknowledged. In some cultures, marriage is recommended or considered to be compulsory before pursuing any sexual activity. When defined broadly, marriage is considered a cultural universal. Individuals may marry for several reasons, including legal, social, libidinal, emotional, financial, spiritual, and religious purposes. Who they marry may be influenced by socially determined rules of incest, prescriptive marriage rules, parental choice and individual desire.
There is Power in Prayer through Yeshua Ha' Mashiach! Some time ago, The Lord put it on my heart to post the healing scriptures that Dodie Osteen has stood on for over 25 years here on my blog. She was diagnosed with cancer and told by her doctors to go home and prepare to die. Praise God she did not accept their diagnosis into her Spirit but ran to her Father and stood on His Word and promises. Initially I was just going to list the scriptures, then I thought about creating a hyper-link so you could click on the scripture and go to a website and read it, but the Lord impressed on me the need to list each scripture in full. I found the list on the Lakewood Church website and I began typing out the list and the verses.
Michel Foucault Born in Poitiers, France to an upper-middle-class family, Foucault was educated at the Lycée Henri-IV and then the École Normale Supérieure, where he developed an interest in philosophy and came under the influence of his tutors Jean Hyppolite and Louis Althusser. After several years as a cultural diplomat abroad, he returned to France and published his first major book, The History of Madness. After obtaining work between 1960 and 1966 at the University of Clermont-Ferrand, he produced two more significant publications, The Birth of the Clinic and The Order of Things, which displayed his increasing involvement with structuralism, a theoretical movement in social anthropology from which he later distanced himself. These first three histories were examples of a historiographical technique Foucault was developing which he called "archaeology". Early life Youth: 1926–1946
Hippocratic Oath A 12th-century Byzantine manuscript of the Oath The Hippocratic Oath is an oath historically taken by physicians and other healthcare professionals swearing to practice medicine honestly. It is widely believed to have been written by Hippocrates, often regarded as the father of western medicine, or by one of his students.

Philosophy At the core of Aryanism is a precise foundational ideology from which its religious, political and cultural aspects all follow. Aryanists are expected to be able to articulately represent the arguments of this ideology and compare it to any other given ideology, including in debate against hostile critics. To hone skills towards this end, Aryanists are encouraged to debate each other and to proactively seek out opposing presentations (historical as well as contemporary) and offer Aryan rebuttals. Through developing familiarity with each other’s work, Aryanists are expected to establish specialist expertize in different areas of the subject matter and be able to mutually defer ongoing discourse with trust and respect.

Samadhanga Sutta: The Factors of Concentration I have heard that on one occasion the Blessed One was staying at Savatthi, in Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery.
