I'm guessing at least 15 of your friends have posted Jefferson Bethke's "Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus," and maybe yet another 15 of your friends posted response pieces. Don't worry: the phrase 'false dichotomy' will not appear anywhere in this article. And we will not discuss at length the merits of Christian as a subgenre (perhaps another time). Bethke risks appearing supremely arrogant by claiming to love Jesus and hate religion an arrogance of which, I must point out, I am as guilty as anyone.

Hi, Have you ever read a whodunnit murder mystery novel? Did you read the last chapter first? Why not? I m guessing it was because it wouldn t have made sense without the preceding chapters which gave context to the final chapter and made the final chapter understandable. In a similar way, the New Testament is the final chapter of the Old Testament. It is the fulfillment of the Old Testament. The Old and New Testaments work together to give us the whole picture of who God is, who we are and what God does with our rebellion. The Old Testament forms a backdrop against which we can understand the New Testament. The New Testament is the fulfillment of God s plans, purposes and promises which he gave in the Old Testament. As such then you can say that both the Old and New Testaments are about

These specialized groups are collectively called the classification of living things. The classification of living things includes 7 levels:, and.

Why do teachers give so much homework? Teachers want students to remember what they learn in school. School helps you do well in life, whether you become a parent, doctor, or store owner. Teachers want to help you succeed, so they give you homework. Homework helps you remember the things your teacher said in class. Homework lets you practice on your own. If you do your homework, you can feel more confident and do better in school the next day. Make a special time and find a specific place to do your homework every day. If you don't have any homework, you might use your "homework time" to review math facts or read for fun. Some kids need extra practice, and all of us have subjects we find easier and harder. Even if you don't think you need the practice, make a good habit to do your
Food Historian Bruce Kraig takes a look at the Christian Holy Day. Colored eggs, chocolate rabbits, baked hams and roasted lamb. These are all foods we prepare and enjoy at Easter. But have you ever wondered how these traditions evolved or why eat these foods at Easter time? Food historian Bruce Kraig explains: The main Christian holy day (actually more than a month) celebrates Jesus' resurrection, but the idea of rebirth in the spring season and many customs come from older observances. The name Easter is used in English speaking countries-in other countries it's some version of Paschal.
