Making my decision on whether or not to go to college was an easy determinant for me. I knew that going to college, I would gain information and skills that I could use no matter what career or job training I choose. The world is changing rapidly; more and more jobs require education beyond high school. College graduates have more jobs to choose from than those who do not pursue education beyond high school. Earning a college degree will enable me to start my own business, earn more money, and have self satisfaction.
Upon completing college, I want to start my own business. In order to do that, I need to get a business plan together, and I need to have all of the aspects of opening and running the business worked out for the short and long term. It will be hard work, but I know I can do it because I will develop the skills, techniques, and knowledge from college to successfully operate and own my business. Also, I will have the ability to communicate effectively and be able to direct others within my business. It is exciting to know that a bachelor’s degree will help me to obtain these particular abilities and master the latest methods.
In fact, owning my own business will allow me to earn more money. In owning and operating my own business, I want to be comfortable in making decisions and taking responsibility to ensure that I will be able to earn more money. Financially, earning a college degree is a wise choice. The rate of return in future earnings for every dollar a student spends on education makes up the cost of earning a degree. Although jobs with good pay are available to workers with lower levels of education, my general rule is that the more education I get, the more chances I will have to earn more money. After all, education will permit me to have steady and gross income.
In addition to earning more money, there is much self satisfaction…...

Essay on Inerrancy and Inspiration

...The authority of the Bible comes from within itself. It is the word of God. God is both true and truthful (1 Thess. 1:9; Rom. 15:8). Inspiration in the Biblical sense means that each word comes from God’s mouth. As in, 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is God-breathed…”, meaning God has spoken the words to the writers of the Bible. Scriptures that backs up my statements are: 1 Peter 1: 20,21 and Job 32:8 and Romans 3:2 are just a few that I came across. I firmly and whole heartedly believe that the Bible is perfect, meaning without error. I think that the more educated a person is regarding the Bible the more they may question that the Bible has errors or contradicts itself. I mean just look at the list of the arguments of the “problems” in Scripture, Biblical Argument, Historical Argument, Epistemological Argument and The Slippery Slope Argument. So many times when people are disputing the Word of God they quickly come to Matthew 5:17-20 and John 10:34-35. Almost every time they are taking the scripture right out of context. When in scripture there seems to be an area that allows two different intrepretations the latter should be taken. I say that the Bible has no errors in it because I have faith. When you have faith you believe in the unseen. I did not see these men write the words down. The relationship between inspiration and inerrancy goes back to what I said before, that since the Bible is inspired of God and God is perfect there is no error in it. ......

Inerrancy and Inspiration

...known in His self-disclosure. (Elwell pg. 153) Revelation is therefore the key to God’s authority, because in order to have authority we need revelation concerning the source of authority. In revelation God declares His authority. Inspiration is the process by which God chose to reveal Himself, apart from general revelation, through His written Word. By His Word, we mean being God’s own Word written by men and superintended by His Holy Spirit as the divine author. The written word of God is whole and was verbally given with the incorporation of the writer’s personality without any error or fault. In 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) we read that “all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction and righteousness.” Also in 2 Peter 1:19-20 (KJV) we read that no prophecy came from the will of man but rather that men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit. In light of the prophecies and predictions that Scripture has made regarding the predictions concerning the Messiah, His birth, life, death, burial and resurrection, it is hard not to see the Bible as the inspired Word of God. I do not think men of their own accord could have been that accurate apart from divine inspiration. Now there is still a question pertaining to inerrancy that must be answered and it is one that proves to be of equal importance. If men were the authors, and men are fallible and sinners, how do we know that the Bible is......

Inspiration and Inerrancy

...Short Essay on Inspiration and Inerrancy of the Bible Living in a Fallen world, people tend to search for answers to life’s questions in places they should not be looking. This causes them to belittle the actual source of answers God has provided for us, the Bible. I find it hard to explain God’s authority to an unbelieving individual talk less of the Bible’s authority. If a person doesn’t believe the bible, it can be a task to convince them that it has any authority. It is easy to explain the authority of the government or police, because these are authorities they are subject to and they can see, but when to comes to the authority of God and the bible, it is a different perspective. God has given us the Bible as a gift of love for us His children to follow until He comes back. It is the divine truth to all of humanity. The Bible is God’s revelation in written form to man. That is where the authority of the Bible comes from, the divine revelation of God Himself. Biblical inspiration is the doctrine in Christian theology concerned with the divine origin of the bible and what it teaches. Compared to the modern definition of inspiration, which is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something especially to do something creative, biblical inspiration is God breathed, divine influence of the Holy spirit. God revealed Himself to selected people whom he had inspired to write the books of the Bible. In 2 Peter 1:21 the bible says for prophecy never had it’s......

Short Essay on Inerrancy and Inspiration

...Essay on Inerrancy and Inspiration Millions of people worldwide read the Bible and use it for our worship of the Lord, instructions on how to live a moral life, and for guidance. Most people are naturally curious about why the Bible was written and who it was written by. People wonder if we can trust the words of the Bible since God didn’t actually put pen to paper and write the book. The Bible was written by authors who were inspired to write by God. One question that a lot of people ask is how do we know the Bible whether or not the Bible is true and from God. What does it mean to say that the Bible has authority, and from where does the authority of the Bible come from? To put it simply if the Bible is the word of God, then the Bible must be true. So the Bible has authority in all cases because it is the word of God. “For in him all authority is finally located. And he is his own authority for there is nothing outside him on which his authority is founded. Thus, in making his promise to Abraham, he pledged his own name since he had no greater by whom to swear” (Heb. 6:13). There are many different authors and books in the Bible. From the Old Testament to the New Testament there are different stories, lessons, and writing styles that make up the 66 books of the Bible. Sometimes the question of why these books were written may be asked. It is believed that the authors of the Bible were inspired by God to write their testimonies. Biblical inspiration is the belief that......

Studying Abroad for Future Inspirations

...Studying Abroad For Future Inspirations Teenagers nowadays are trying to find short cuts or quick ways to get over with their academic programs in high school. A lot of them seem to have no idea what they are about to do next; they just want to be done with school so they can enjoy their time. However, they do not realize the fact that their education is actually a major part of their life and finding their careers. Many teenagers tend to be clueless about their future and do not know their true talents or identities. It happens because teenagers love to try new things and go with the flow of their friends; they are confused with what they are really good at or interested in. When one has to be alone for a long time, he or she would have enough time to be able to identify his or her true identity; studying abroad is the solution. It is very difficult to see the whole picture for the new faces in other countries because they could not solve their problems on their own. This phenomenon usually occurs with the closed family culture. So, going overseas leads teenagers to improve their solving skills when they encounter obstacles. The more difficulties they faced, the more they are able to handle in any situation. A French novelist, Marcel Proust, once stated that, “The only real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” Seeing the new side of the world brings juveniles to discover their new attitudes about the real life.

Inspirations of the Founding Fathers

...indefeasible right to reform, alter, or abolish (the government)” when that government falters from its duties toward “the common benefit, protection, and security of the people nation, or community”. Locke’s influence was instrumental to the independence of the colonies and the founding of the United States, as it is obvious from these documents that many of our founding fathers took some of their cues from him concerning the abolishment of a corrupt government and the rights of man. Though Locke is a well-known guidance for the origins of our country, Charles-Louis de Secondat, baron de La Brède et de Montesquieu (or Montesquieu for short) was the philosopher our founders quoted most in the drafting of our Constitution. He was the inspiration for the “separation of powers” in our current government, stating in The Spirit of the Laws, “There would be an end of every thing were the same man, or the same body, ... to exercise those three powers that of enacting laws, that of executing the public resolutions, and that of judging the crimes or differences of individuals.” He writes that all three branches; executive, legislative, and judiciary; should be separate, specifically the executive and legislative. Montesquieu’s opinion is reflected in the Virginia Declaration of Rights, which states in Section 5, “That the legislative and executive powers of the state should be separate and distinct from the judiciary”. Montesquieu also created what is known in America as “checks......

...INTRODUCTION Biblical inspiration is the doctrine in Christian theology that the authors and editors of the Bible were led or influenced by God with the result that their writings may be designated in some sense the word of God. Etymology The word inspiration comes by way of Vulgate Latin and the King James English translations of the Greek word θεοπνευστος (theopneustos, literally, "God-breathed") found in 2 Timothy 3:16–3:17: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. Omnis Scriptura divinitus inspirata utilis est ad docendum, ad arguendum, ad corripiendum, et erudiendum in justitia : ut perfectus sit homo Dei, ad omne opus bonum instructus.[3] πᾶσα γραφὴ θεόπνευστος καὶ ὠφέλιμος πρὸς διδασκαλίαν, πρὸς ἐλεγμόν, πρὸς ἐπανόρθωσιν, πρὸς παιδείαν τὴν ἐν δικαιοσύνῃ, ἵνα ἄρτιος ᾖ ὁ τοῦ θεοῦ ἄνθρωπος, πρὸς πᾶν ἔργον ἀγαθὸν ἐξηρτισμένος.[4] When Jerome translated the Greek text of the Bible into the language of the common people of Latium (the region of central western Italy in which the city of Rome is located), he translated the Greek theopneustos as divinitus inspirata ("divinely breathed into"). The word "inspiration" comes from the Latin noun inspiratio and from the verb inspirare. Inspirare is a compound term resulting from the Latin prefix in (inside, into) and the verb spirare (to breathe).......

...Jae Lee MLA Theo 201-D21 Short Essay on Inerrancy and Inspiration. While sitting on a bench in a nearby park I was reading the Bible, when a jogger had stopped in the middle of his jog and asked me why am I reading the Bible and do I really think that the words of God has authority. So I answered his first question by telling him that I am a student in a Christian College and that I found my love for God. The second question that he had, I answered him with a question saying whoever might you believe in or what you believe in does it have authority? With that reply I went on briefly and told him that Jesus in my father and he is my savior. He is the one I believe in and the one that sets plans for all of us. Inspiration can be also defined as Approach, influence, a way to help one rise and other things. the purpose of the Bible Inspiration is that it helps one understand or even let one rise from their problems because the father Jesus Christ is there to protect and provide for them.

Inspiration and Inerrancy

...What is Inspiration? Inspiration is define in the book as supernatural influence of the Holy Spirit upon the Scripture writers. The dictionary has inspiration defined as the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something; the quality of being inspired; a person or thing that inspires; a sudden brilliant, creative or timely idea and lastly the divine influence believed to have led to the writing of the Bible. The word inspiration is derived from the word inspire which in Greek is theopneustos meaning God-breathed. We have Scripture because God spoke the words. The Holy Spirit moved the writers to record the word of God. Inspiration is receiving the word of God. In a supernatural way the Holy Spirit used man to write the words of God. The Bible was the result of these writings. It is a product of the inspiration given to the writers. God inspired the writers leading them speak and write his words. The Bible is error free as the words are God infallible. It is Gods way of communicating his will for his people. The Bible is the authoritative word of God. Erickson states that there are five types of theories of inspiration. Intuition theory in which the writers possessed a high degree of insight.

Victims of Inspiration

...thirty or so sleepy faces tilt up toward the bright, intently watching the white screen as it descends from the ceiling. This is a typical scenario for the freshman art students’ Tuesday lecture class, but on this one particular day, we are collectively able to muster an unusual amount of enthusiasm for this lecture. The reason? Quite simply, Pablo Picasso. Father of Analytical Cubism, one of the chief figures in modern art, as well as being one of the most well known and most popular, Picasso stands as a towering idol and inspiration to many of us as we recount his history. However, as the lecture goes on, I found out an interesting fact about the painter that took me by surprise. Whenever I though about Picasso and cubism, I had always assumed the style had been his own invention; an original, new way of painting that had come to him from some divine form of inspiration. It was revealed, in that dark room surrounded by other artists and victims of inspiration, that Picasso’s square, blocky, misshapen figures were created from the likeness of African art, or more specifically, African masks (“Picasso”). Admittedly, it is certainly not the most shocking thing I’v ever heard, and I wasn’t in any state of disbelief, but a familiar, uneasy feeling did come over me. I have a strong affinity toward many different forms of rock music, installed into me by my parents and the Beatles at an early age. And soon after I began to learn about the history of the music I loved, I learned......

Inerrancy and Inspiration

...Inerrancy and Inspiration Morgan Sikes Liberty University THEO 201-B18 Inerrancy and Inspiration Although, contrary to some who believe otherwise, the Bible is an all-authoritative book. As Christians we believe, that scripture is God breathed and because it is from God, it is accurate and authoritative. The Bible is directly from God, written through his disciples. Since the authority belongs to God, our command as Christ followers is to follow Jesus’ example of how he lived in the Bible. According to the Evangelical Dictionary of Theology, “Authority is the right and power to command, enforce laws, exact obedience, determine or judge.” In respect to the Bible, this means that because it is authoritative, we must follow the laws given by its word. This empowerment belongs to God, and to God alone. Matthew 21:23-24 states, that Jesus’ authority came from God his Father, the one who sent him to Earth. The Bible’s authority, comes from God, but was not written by God, or Jesus themselves. The people chosen to write the books of the Bible were chosen specifically by God, and were inspired through the work of the Holy Spirit. Along with authority and inspiration, comes the discussion of inerrancy. Inerrancy is the view that the entire Bible is completely accurate and true. There are four arguments for inerrancy, including The Biblical Argument. This argument states that if God has authority over the Bible, then it has to be inerrant because God is truth. The Bible......

My Inspiration

...Joshua Gamez DeVry University Professor: Tammy Williams-Hinson English 62 My Inspiration People sometimes need inspiration in their lives especially when they are lonely or depressed or even lost and people who always give up easily. I was one of those people in middle school through freshman year in high school. Until one person, an ROTC instructor that I met freshman year his name is Chief Master Sargent Butler we call Chief. Apparently he knew I had potential that I could do something in the program and life in the future. This person inspired me in so many ways he also motivated me to do something with my life so he made a very big impact on me for many reasons. The first reason for why he inspired me is because he taught me to never give up. In the beginning I used to give up all the time even in academics if I could not understand something I would give up. One day I had the courage to try out for the Armed Drill team in order to make it on the team you have to have a drill evaluation by your commander which to me it was easy but the second part it was the 30 min physical training session also known as the PT session or the Slayer as we used to call it as Cadets. When I did my session it was very difficult I gave up so I did not make the team I left the practice early and apologize to Chief who was the coach he told me to stay he wanted to talk to me after practice. He told me that I have so much potential that I could make it to the Crimson Knights which it......

Some have an idea where to find it, yet others question the very validity of God’s word. During my walk with Christ this question has been asked more than once and sometimes not nearly enough.”What does it mean to say that the Bible has “Authority, and how do we know for sure where the Authority of the Bible came?” The interesting thing is when you do explain the truth of God’s word to today’s society; society is still inept to believe Hollywood before it understands the authority of God’s word. Let’s consider the Atheist beliefs. Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is the absence of belief that any deities exist. Atheism......

Gauguin and Tahitian Inspiration and Spirituality

...Gauguin and Tahitian Inspiration and Spirituality The artwork that I chose to write about the form, content, and function is Day of the God (Mahana no Atua), created in 1894 by Paul Gauguin in Paris after Gauguin had returned from Tahiti. It is oil on canvas, 26 7/8 x 36 inches. This piece of artwork depicts a group of women in an island setting. In the upper right portion of the painting, there are two women carrying a large tray above their heads. They are both dressed in white, ankle length strapless dresses. Both women have long, black hair and the women closer to the center of the painting seems to have her hair in a low ponytail. They are standing on a grassy embankment of green. In front of them is a pink embankment. There is a thin strip of yellow sandy beach that leads to the ocean behind them. In the background there is a wave with a white crest and a group of palm trees. The sky above the two ladies is partly cloudy with a vibrant blue peeking out from behind the white and grey cloud. In the upper center portion of the painting, there is a large figure standing on top of a brown platform surrounded by a group of rocks. The ocean looms behind the figure and the pink and purple embankment is in front of the figure. This figure has brownish grey skin and is wearing a blue codpiece with brown trim on the top. There is a blue skirt attached to the back portion of the codpiece, from hip to hip. This skirt seems to extend......
