His distinguished Mass in B Minor has succeeded over the decades and became one of the Catholic Church’s divinity and praise classical songs, since it depicts the life of Jesus Christ. As how Talbeck (n.d.) described his music, Bach revealed the “essence of Baroque unity, order, and control, residing with unshakable confidence beneath his broad brow.” Furthermore, Bach’s life is more fortunate than the other composers his age who suffered from social criticisms.

In no other Gothic church of comparable size is the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass so harmonious and of such quality, owing to the comparatively short (1194-1220) period of construction for the major parts of the edifice. The present church, the sixth on the site, was begun immediately after the fifth church burned in 1194. People of every rank helped rebuild the church, with labor or with lavish benefactions. An 1194 fire destroyed most of what had by then become a Romanesque cathedral but spared the western facade and crypt. The...

Born out of intense persecution, and hence a church which knew the meaning of drawing close to the heart of God, the church at Philippi, was a group which received more encouraging from Paul in his letters than most other churches. This church did not wrestle with deceptive false doctrines to the extent which Thessalonica struggled nor did the Philippians church fall into the partisan wrangling which had inflicted the church in Corinth.

Jesus found guidance for his ministry and preaching in the Scriptures of his people. The earliest preachers used the Old Testament to show God's purpose in Christ, and interpreted the Christian faith as the divinely given fulfillment of the faith of Israel. If Christianity is true, the Christian interpretation of the Old Testament is the true interpretation. Other interpretations are either limited or erroneous; for Paul says of the veil which kept the Jews from full and true understanding of the Old...

... Setting Your Church Free: A Biblical Plan to Help Your Church, Neil T. Anderson lays out a clear, thorough plan to engage an entire church in spiritual warfare and free the church itself from demonic bondage.

In spiritual warfare as in worldly warfare, the “troops” must stick together, and must have a leader willing to do what is necessary. The first thing Anderson does in Setting Your Church Free is dispense with the idea that there can be any truly solid foundation for a church other than Christ. Further, he warns us that...

... Board Discussion Board Mark Driscoll’s On Church Leadership defines church as the Christian community throughout history that has been saved and loved by Jesus Christ.

Psalm 118:5-6 says: “In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and he answered by setting me free. The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?” Stress can enhance the ability to live for Jesus Christ when people learn to yield to God’s plans during situations that they cannot control or change. An example is feeling stress from work because of a micro-managing...

... Aspects of the priestly cosmology of the Letter to the Hebrews Insert (s) Aspects of the priestly cosmology of the Letter to the Hebrews Introduction Throughout the epistle of Hebrews, there are numerous instances where different aspects of priestly cosmos are revealed.

... APOSTLE PAUL 4 Discussion question Paul’s religious experience on the road to Damascus According to Brown, Saint Paulviewed that the followers of Jesus Christ were portraying a lifestyle and believe that was contrary to the beliefs of the Pharisees to which he was ascribing to.

Apostle Paul received a great revelation from Jesus Christ. His transformation was based on a personal encounter with the Lord Himself and this is also manifested when he was taken for personal...
