... the waters." And so, believe many, the earth's history began. This quotation from the Bible and the stories that follow it have spawned so many different sects in the Christian Tradition. But what spawned Christianity? Most would say the Christian Tradition was brought about by the belief that Jesus Christ was the messiah. This is, in essence correct. However, Christianity in itself can be looked at as a sect of Judaism, because, Judaism, in essence, gave birth to Christianity. Jesus was, after all a Jew.

... chose to define it for this paper) means taking arguments that affirm an issue to such a degree that they seem absurd, and thus oppose the issue.

7: Kierkegaard And Christianity
... thought: Fyodor Dostoevsky (although either of them would probably deny this vehemently). However, in the course of his writings, Kierkegaard takes quite a liberal and (dare I say it?) individualistic stand on the side of Christianity. In the passages I have read of Kierkegaard ("That Individual" and "Truth is Subjectivity"), he puts forward two basic themes which seem to be his "driving force" behind each piece respectively. It is behind these ... absolute, eternal truth. In these beginning paragraphs, Kierkegaard has already set his theme for this passage: that only as individuals with the help of God can one achieve the goal, or "eternal truth", that is Christianity. As we delve deeper into the passage, we almost discover a politico-religious message hits us shortly after he forms his original premise. Kierkegaard states that the crowd being the untruth, none has more disregard ... his theme like an award-winning opera, this time with more emphasis than the first. In this he does once again state that only the individual, aided by God, can achieve the ultimate truth of Christianity. He goes further, however, to declare that the communication of the truth can only be perceived or expressed by the individual. The press and the populace therefore cannot carry or fully express the eternal ...

Apparently this command continued to be fulfilled even far beyond His ascension into heaven. The commandment sparked the beginning of Christianity and throughout the years, its cultures, religions and beliefs poured out upon the continents, including the New World. The intent of this report is to show the transfer of Christianity from the Old World to the Americas; it is to outline its beginnings and show its impact on the Indian people.

But the old structure of Jewish life was severely damaged: community controls became less effective, and neglect of religious observance, mixed marriage, and conversion to Christianity occurred. In response to such challenges, new modernist versions of Judaism were formulated; these movements originated in Germany and had their greatest development in North America. In Russia hopes of improvement were soon abandoned; the ... drafted into the army for terms of more than 30 years (whereas other Russians were drafted at 18 for 25 years); and Jewish conscripts were treated with the utmost brutality to make them convert to Christianity. After 1804, Jews were allowed to reside only in Poland, Lithuania, and the Ukraine; Russia proper was closed to them. This Pale of settlement was later made smaller. From 1881 on, anti-Jewish riots, ...
10: Comparing Buddhism and Christianity
Comparing Buddhism and Christianity I will attempt to do this, but please bear in mind that my knowledge of Christianity is not that profound and my personal views will inevitably prevail to some degree. I believe in fact that these two systems are poles apart and have very few similarities indeed. In this sense I ... other words, and in my opinion, a person who is attracted to (and happy with) Buddhism is likely to be a very different kind of person than one who is attracted to (and happy with) Christianity.
