Kingdom of Matthias Term Paper

… " Matthias preached that the world which the gentiles lived in was about to burn, and afterward the "Hebrew spirits in his male followers would awaken into a renewed terrestrial paradise, where under his governance they would live like country squires and oversee their wives and children with the authority of Abraham (Brown)."

A Change in Religion

Although Matthias was not what many would consider the epitome of a crusader, Americans then and now gladly entertained the "radical Protestant notion that all history since the apostolic days has been an error now to be cast aside. A sublime disregard for the past goes along with exorbitant visions of what might be accomplished in the present (Brown)."

There were a number of pioneers in religion during…. [read more]

Kingdom of Matthias Term Paper

… In The Kingdom of Matthias, the honorable historians Paul Johnson and Sean Wilentz intensely explain the long forgotten story, to write their extensively researched work with the breathtaking drive in the form of a novel. In this book, the authors provide us with a the mysterious tale of Matthias- the Prophet through the window of the turbulent movements of the religious revival known as the Second Great Awakening, a movement which led to the formation of several sects of religion and also swayed away a great number of evangelical Americans paving the path to new sects like the Mormons.

This environment was created by the carpenter named Robert Matthews, who changed his name to Matthias, as he self-proclaimed to be the prophet of the God…. [read more]

American Cultural History Term Paper

… Finally the group shifted to the house of B. Folgers at Sing. The talks went on about religion as also the work. There Pierson died an unnatural death, and Matthias arrested on the charge of murdering him. Matthias was also accused of some criminal connections with Mrs. Folgers. (The Mathias Delusion)

The police investigated he matter and Matthias was finally being released, even after everything happened. Then Matthias went off to some part of the West, where he later passed away. This case was considered similar to many such issues which prevailed during that time. There are at least four types of religious groups which date back to the 19th century which deserve our attention -- the Mormons, Oneidas, Shakers and Millerites. All these groups…. [read more]

Human Being and How They Interact Research Proposal

… ¶ … human being and how they interact and react with each other and with their environment, often on the basis of certain ideas that gain ascendance at a particular time and place. The society of a given gains shape from the ideas prevalent about a society should be shaped, meaning what should interest that society and how people relate to that society. Two such societies are addressed by the authors of two history books detailing particular social movements and their outcomes, the first in the Kingdom of Matthias by Paul E. Johnson and Alcoholic Republic by W.J. Rorabaugh.

The Kingdom of Matthias tells the story of a real effort to create a utopian society, this time in America in the mid-nineteenth century, headed by…. [read more]

Holy Spirit in the Book Acts Term Paper

… Holy Spirit in the Book Of Acts

The purpose of the Book of Acts was to offer a history of the early church with a focus on the Holy Spirit and how it is the "life principle" of the Church (Johnson 1992, 14). The book focuses on the day of Pentecost and how one can be empowered by being a witness for Jesus Christ. Specifically, Acts tells the reader that the purpose of the book is to write "about all that Jesus began to do and to teach until the day he was taken up to heaven" (Acts 1:1-2); this, according to Bock (2007, 51) is a reminder from his gospel and is used as a reaffirmation. Acts is the record of the apostles being…. [read more]

Birth Date Possible Risk Factor for Allergic Disease Research Paper

… Allergy Disease and Birth Date

This study seeks to determine the link between date of birth, exposure to allergens before birth and the sensitization among children. The risk is greater among certain groups of individuals, such as children. The present study found that children develop allergic reaction mostly to pollen. Previous researches showed that sensitization is highest if conception occurs in the first few months of the year when the level of pollen is highest. It was also found that prenatal exposure to household pets, diesel exhaust and led compound the risk.

Allergic disease is the immune system's reaction to a foreign substance (Mayo Clinic

Staff, 2011). Examples of foreign substances are pollen, dust, bee venom, medications, food and pet dander. That reaction produces antibodies…. [read more]

Von Schnerer's Drift into Insanity

George Heinrich Ritter von Schnerer came from a family of engineers, inherited a purchased title, and aroused the petite bourgeoisie of Vienna and the German-speaking villagers of the Lumpenproletariat. He rose to public attention during a time when Austria was particularly vulnerable to the demands of Eastern Europeans, whose new-found power increased as the Habsburg monarchy lost control over its empire.

But for von Schnerer's influence on Hitler, he might have disappeared into the clouds of history after a few short years in the Austrian House of Representatives.…. [read more]

Marshall Plan and the Post 911 Global Research Paper

… Marshall Plan and the Post 911 Global War on Terror

Many times in the history of the world, war or its aftermath has threatened catastrophe. Following the end of the First World War, the leaders of the victorious allied nations imposed punishing reparations on defeated Germany. The resultant economic depression and deep resentment has been blamed by many for the rise of Hitler and militant fascism. Hitler's ascent to power led directly to the even greater horrors of World War II. The carnage and destruction that was Europe in 1945 left impressions that were not easily dispelled. The Globe's leaders sought ways to prevent a repeat of the circumstances that had caused the two world wars. The United Nations represented an attempt to bring the…. [read more]

Jesus' Christian Life, Prayer, and Teachings Dissertation

… Prayer brings redemption. Solomon averred that as soon as he asked for Wisdom, it was bestowed upon him. David, similarly, was given fortitude through the Spirit of God (Psalms 118, 131). Every martyr obtained strength to resist tyrants, and overcame dangers and death through prayer. The above are all examples of this "communication" with God in the true spirit of how Prayer was intended.

St. John Chrysostom weighs in again: "He who uses this great weapon knows not death, leaves the earth, enters heaven, and lives with God. He falls not into sin; he loses affection for the earth; he makes his abode in heaven; and begins, even in this life, to enjoy the conversation of God. How then can you disquiet…. [read more]

King Herod, the Great Term Paper

… In the spring of 30 B.C. Herod met Octavius in Rhodes. But before he left he gave instructions to two of his friends that if was executed then they have to kill Alexandra and Mariamne, so that his sons and his brother Pheroras would rule his kingdom (3).

King Herod played his part well when he came in Rhodes to stand before Octavius. He confessed immediately that he was a true friend of Marc Antony and that he did not fight against Octavius due to his war against the Arabs (3). His arguments to Octavius gave the impression that if he was loyal to Marc Antony then his loyalty would benefit Octavius. This explanation allowed Herod to remain as the ruler of Judea and he….

High Degree of Misinformation Essay

… Discuss the changes.

Prior to taking this course, in many ways I considered Christianity to be a static religion. I had not given thought to the notion that Christianity changed rapidly in the first few centuries of its practice. I noticed several critical changes in the practice of Christianity in the first century AD and its later practice. The first change was the idea of a Christ centered church with Jesus as the only leader. The second change was the idea of a church with multiple elders to focusing power on a single leader. The third change was the idea that church leadership should remain local to the shifting of power to leaders located away from the church's physical area. The fourth change was a…. [read more]

Saudi Arabian Art

The people of countries and civilizations use a variety of forms and functions to express themselves and to make light of or bring concern to their daily lives and/or how they view the world. However, when one is speaking of a country where speech and speaking out is heavily regulated or at least scrutinized, artwork takes on a new form and function as the art can be one of the few outlets that some people can use. The above is certainly true of Saudi Arabia, the home country of the author of this report, and any other country that is steeped deeply in religious beliefs and practices and it is certainly common for countries that follow Muslim and/or….

Poverty in Haiti -- Case Case Study

… A lot can be achieved for national growth through improved capital access for rural industries (Kahlmann).

Dr. Valentine Abe of the Caribbean Harvest Foundation sees aquaculture as the redeeming solution, beginning from the rural areas (Clinton Foundation, 2012). Haiti's lakes have been over-fished for decades. Increasing the output of fingerlings can help fish farms beat both poverty and malnutrition in the rural areas (Clinton Foundation).

Recommendations -- a broad-spectrum approach under a proper leader will address Haiti's intimately connected problems in positive synergy simultaneously (Sullivan, 2010). The GDP per capita must be increased from its present level. The distribution of wealth must be rectified. Public education and literacy must be expanded. More jobs must be created and skills development programs extensively conducted. Access to clean…. [read more]

Globalization and American Health Term Paper

… S. But available elsewhere also prompts people to seek treatment abroad. One such treatment is the orthopedic procedure known as hip resurfacing, that is an alternative to the traditional hip replacement as done in the United States. Thus those suffering chronic pain, are treated in India, "where hip resurfacing techniques, materials, and instrumentation have been perfected, and the procedure is routine." (Edelheit, 2007)

There are lesser waiting periods abroad and those who are subscribers of free health care have to wait for very prolonged periods to be treated and such persons like those covered by the 'Veterans Administration Act' chose to pay out of pocket to beat the uncertainty of waiting. These are the types of patients who seek relief outside the U.S. But the…. [read more]

Adaptive Graphical Interfaces Thesis

… Adaptive Graphical Interfaces

The entire human race represents a great diversity in personality, moods, background, preferences, motivation, goals, education and cognitive skills. Similarly, computers too display variation in purpose, functionality, structure, size and the manner in which their internal functioning are represented. These computer systems have been ultimately designed to be used by human beings and therefore the complexity of the human computer interaction (HCI) is something that must be considered seriously. HCI does not only involve political, organizational and social factors but also the demands of a situation along with user support. The usability of a computer system depends on the user interface displayed on the computer and the human in front of it. The different command names, icons and signs displayed on the…. [read more]

"Great music is in a sense serene; it is certain of the values it asserts."

In fact, according to Teitelbaum (1), "The thesis paper, when carefully assigned and conscientiously done, has definite value." Professors usually assign the thesis paper as a major component of a course requirement. The researched…. [read more]

Work and Organization Term Paper

… Work and Organisation

Improving the capabilities of individuals and groups to solve problems and arrive at decisions is identified as an important issue in organizational settings in spheres of education, industry, and government. Latest research in this realm has found an authoritarian model of problem solving, even though there are fewer consensuses regarding the right methods. Independent research on personality and cognitive styles has found vital individual disparities in the manner in which people approach and solve problems.
