There is no shortage of leaders in the Old Testament. According to dictionary.com a leader is a person who influences a group of people towards the achievement of a goal. When you think of a leader you want someone with great leadership skills of course but you also want someone with character, someone who is not just in it to get there name out for all to hear, also they have to be loyal and honest. In my opinion there is no contest in the Old Testament and my leader would have to be Moses. Moses in my eyes is the greatest leader a group of people could ask for. Moses was born a Levite and he was also raised an Egyptian. Moses ran away to the desert where god communicated with him through “The Burning Bush” and Moses’ answer to god was “Here I am Lord” Moses taught me that to be a leader you don’t always have to be given the name of a leader. God asked Moses to lead his people, not because he was the only one that could but because god knew that Moses had determination and the ability. Moses could not speak clearly, but god granted Moses with all the tools and abilities he would need in life to serve his lord. My view would be that a lot of people want to be something that they are not and if they would just accept what god made them then they would be so successful in life. In our eyes today we feel like because we have flaws as a human being we can’t be leaders we are scared of other peoples judgments about us whether it be our appearance, name, or how popular we are in
I would like to share my experience as a Vacation Bible School leader three years ago. Members of our Church(18+) who were interested had to attend a training camp and the selected ones were assigned to different churches as V.B.S. Leaders. I was assigned to a Church in Kottayam (Kerala). I was to lead a group of 73 students, 14 teachers and a few volunteers for 12 days. my objective was to maintain discipline, to introduce the main theme to the children and the teachers, take one lesson per day…
displayed by Jesus in John 13:14-15 can be used as a great example. The Bible states in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” Jesus was a teacher. He became a servant to train and teach the disciples how to humble themselves and serve others. While Jesus was having supper with the twelve in the upper room, He did something that was unthinkable to man. The Bible states in Isaiah 55:8, "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither…

How are the three major holy books of the monotheistic faiths both similar and different?
The Torah, which is from the Jews, is like the bible because it has included the frost five books from the bible called the Old Testament. They are all different, the Torah is based on revelations given to Moses, the bible is based on teachings from Jesus, the Quran is based on teachings of good given to Muhammad though angel Gabriel.

Martin Luther, a German professor of theology, began the Protestant Reformation in Europe in the 16th century which forever changed christianity. Luther's main issue with the catholic church was the selling of indulgences. Indulgences were sold by the catholic church for the forgiveness of sins. This corrupt system allowed people to buy forgiveness for their sins. Luther disagreed with this and believed forgiveness was granted when a person was sorry. Luther’s concern led him to eventually write…
definitely been a very interesting class, and I have learned much about leadership. As always I believe the best teacher is experience, so that will ultimately be the true test as to what I have learned. For the record, I will be referencing the bible for the majority of my paper because in the words of the late apostle Paul who was quoted as saying, “To live is Christ and to die is gain” (Philippines 1:21). You know my background and some of what my faith has brought me through in life, so I am…

After the Bloody Sunday scene, Dr. King called out many leaders of religious organizations to offer a hand in joining…

Deep within the complex structure of the human heart, beneath the material and the
superficial, resides a longing for truth—a desire for purpose and explanation of life’s elusive
mysteries. Unlike any other species on Earth, humankind does not settle for mindlessly fulfilling
its most basic needs to survive. In the same way…
