Decline and Fall

Dear Paul,

I was awfully sorry to hear about your sending down from Oxford, our beloved home and establishment of education, which I hear you were highly devoted to, and highly developed and skilled in that field. Now, I’d like to make a few things clear with you about the manner in which you have come to such a disappointing forfeiture of your educational opportunity, here at Oxford.

Firstly, I cannot take the blame for the consequences you have suffered after being found guilty of indecent behaviour. The reasoning behind this claim is that by rule of the Bollinger Club, anyone found posing as a member of the Club, who in fact is not a member, requires punishment accordingly. If I’m not mistaken, this called for punishment delivered by myself and the fellow members, to you. Hence the situation was one of your own doing, and I can accurately state that it is you that has contributed decisively to the downfall of your studenthood at Oxford. I understand that you will be upset and aggravated owing to what has happened to you, but I trust that you will find a way out of the situation that you have found yourself in.

Furthermore, I am also writing this letter in the form of apology. I am truly sorry for what has happened to you over the last few weeks, and would be absolutely fuming I was to be placed in your shoes at the moment. Like I have already said, I cannot accept blame for what has been inflicted on you in terms of punishment, but I can empathise as I appreciate the hardship that you have endured. Yet still, the fact of the matter is, you were correctly found guilty of indecent behaviour – whatever the circumstance – and you have been sanctioned accordingly. If the truth be told, most of the actions of the Bollinger Club are insignificant as long as enough money is offered as compensation for the damage. Fellow students have and…...

Paul Is Dead

...An Ode to the Beatles… In 1957, John Lennon had begun a band called the Blackjacks who later became the Quarry Men and later that year invited Paul McCartney to join the group. The lineup that McCartney joined featured Lennon, Eric Griffiths on guitar, Len Garry on "tea-chest" bass, Pete Shotton on "washboard" and Colin Hanton on drums. In February 1958 the young guitarist George Harrison joined the group, which was then playing under a variety of names. Recordings of Lennon, McCartney and Harrison from that year still exist. During this period, members continually joined and left the line up. Lennon, McCartney and Harrison were the only constant members. Hanton left in 1959. The group became a regular gig at the Cashashm which was formed by Mona Best—the mother of the early drummer Pete Best. The band had gone through some rough times and even through a few names before become the Beatles. Brian Epstein, the record producer, told them that Pete Best would have to stop drumming so they could invite a better drummer in. Ringo Starr from Rory Storm and the Hurricanes was pulled in because they favored him (and the band also lost to his band in an old contest). With John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and Stuart Sutcliffe doing the guitar and vocals, while Ringo Starr was handling drums, and finally George Harrison handling bass with vocals every now and then, the band had begun to release singles. Stuart left the band in 1961 and died the next year from a brain hemmorage. But......

Pauls Case

...Person Response: Paul’s Case Paul’s Case is the story of a young man who struggles with his identity. Paul feels that he knows where he belongs, but his family and teachers refuse to support his choices. In the middle of Paul's Case, there is a switch in narration. At this point, the reader can identify with Paul and his problems. Paul struggled with both internal and external problems. His parents and teachers thought he was odd. How Paul felt, was miss understood. In the beginning of the story, Paul seems to be a typical teenage boy, who caused problems in the classroom. As the story progresses, the reader can infer that Paul is rather withdrawn. He would rather live in his fantasy world than face reality. Paul dreaded returning home after the Carnegie Hall performances. He loathed his "ugly sleeping chamber with the yellow walls," but most of all, he feared his father. This is the first sign that he has a troubled home life. Next, the reader learns that Paul has no mother, and that his father holds a neighbor boy up to Paul as "a model". The lack of affection that Paul received at home caused him to look elsewhere for the attention that he craved. Which I am sure many of us can relate to. The theater and Carnegie Hall was where Paul "really lived". To him, the rest of his life was but "a sleep and a forgetting". The moment Paul stepped into either one of those places; he felt he was in his element. He "breathed like a prisoner set free". Paul's life was so dull in......

...Kara Webster REL 212 5th March 2013 Unit 3 – Write Like Paul I Paul a follower of Christ Jesus. To Scott our respected pastor, to Clifford, Christian, and Alex our worthy ushers, and to the beloved people of the church. I pray grace, peace, and blessings over you from our Father and Jesus Christ. I remember all of you in my prayers. I appreciate your faith and admire your obedience. I pray that you are active in sharing your faith. I honor the love you have for one another, and I am in astonishment at the hearts you have refreshed. The Jewish Law has no importance to a person’s relationship with God. Jewish law states in order to get heaven you cannot eat pork. Christ Jesus will not care what you eat or when you eat it. Believe that Christ Jesus died on cross for you. Spread the word of his love and mercy. That is how you can call yourself Christian. What you eat is your personal preference. However eating the right thing will not get you nor keep the title Christian from you. So by all means eat pork hot dogs. Eat them for Sunday Supper or any supper. Pork has no correlation to being a Christian. The end of the world is near. Jesus is coming for judgment day. You should be anticipating, and constructing yourself for his return, things such as spreading his word and trying to renew hearts. Marriage and sex just get in the way of preparing for God’s judgment. I do not applaud to any use of......

What do you think is the level of performance of the sales force each person heads? How do you think each of them will benefit from the sales management training seminar? Jerry Kline is the kind of manager that thinks the important thing is the money. He does not care about building customer relationships, just offer products at lower prices than competition and you will get sales. He does not care about performance, just making sales. He will not benefit at all by the attitude he is having, but if he is willing to learn, he will know that it is important to make a good sales performance and great long term customer relationships.

Characteristics of Paul

...The apostle Paul is the greatest missionary of the Christian faith, with the exception of our Lord Jesus Christ. The apostle Paul had many journeys and used multiple methods to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Those methods all contained several characteristics that set Paul apart from all other missionaries, as these are used today. As Paul went about fulfilling the great commission his legacy can be identified by these key characteristics. Paul ministry was focused on planting a church, his goal to spread the Gospel and convert individuals not just preach to local crowds. Paul’s method of operation was to come into a community begin to evangelize, establish the congregation and the church. These communities of Jews and Gentiles formed by Paul and his team established the local church and he moved on to another location. The path chosen by Paul in his commitment to preaching Jesus Christ to those in the who would listen. Paul preached to all that Christ died for all sinners and every person was in an equal position before God as a sinner. Paul preached redemption through Christ Jesus for all. One the important characteristics Paul had was that he preached to the crowd, he had an understanding that the message would identify with the audience as the Gospel related to that community, by no means did Paul change the word of Christ, he was an educated man and used it in his work spreading the Good News. Throughout Paul's travels he was willing to endure hardships and......

...Paul as a Pastor After reading Annette Huzenga’s article on “Paul as a pastor in 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy and Titus” I began to think that Paul could not be a pastor in today’s society because of his strong personality and sense of a grand mission that he was truly dedicated to. As Huzenga said “Paul understood this about himself.” He never stayed long at a church because his mission was too large to hang around too long. He was preaching to the Non-Christians in the Roman Empire. He knew that his life was in danger with the Romans. Paul was not a pastor, he was an apostle; (295). An apostle is known for moving around from one place to another. The apostle sends information to their churches and anoint others like Timothy and Titus to oversee the churches after his work is done. Timothy and Titus were not pastors, but “overseers”, “elders” or “deacons” to focus on two main points of leadership. (295) Timothy and Titus were Pauls’ respected coworkers, so they had to conduct themselves the same way as him. As far as what the scholars say, Paul didn’t write the letters and that they were written after his death, is an individuals’ belief. (295) I personally believe he wrote because Jesus chose him to do such a difficult job and I don’t think that Jesus would not stay with him to complete his work. I can only read their comments and go on. Paul was definitely a teacher as pastorals called “a teacher” in (1 Tim 2:7; 2 Tim 1:11). The pastorals used language for instruction......

The Letter of Paul

...The Letters of Paul Apostle Paul is very unique with his writings to the people. Paul made his letters real as they could get and they dealt with life and death issues. The letter structure of was highly important part of the ancient letter, as compared to the Hellenistic letter with those in Paul’s letter to Philemon. The whole anatomy of Paul’s letters was special because they all had structure. Paul has several sections in his letters: salutation, thanksgiving, the body, the closing, and the conclusion. The salutation was the most stable elements during the ancient period. The form is rather precise unlike today were we use the sender and recipient, as well as a greeting in the letter. I saw how Paul molds us in his letter to Philemon. During the time of this letter, Paul was in prison, he was addressing the master of Onesimus, which was a runaway slave who has sought refuge with Paul. Meanwhile, Onesimus was converted this set the stage for this letter. In this letter, Paul reminded Philemon that his apostolic mission gave him a prior claim on Onesimus. Paul treated Onesimus as if he was his own brother. Earlier during the beginning of the salutation, Paul identifies himself as a “prisoner for Christ Jesus.” Thus, this condition keys around Paul’s plea for leniency to Onesimus surfaces in the beginning of the letter. In Romans, we see how Paul’s original version of the conservative letter opening. His writings were to the church, one that he never been to before......

Saint Paul

...Paul the Apostle (Greek: Παῦλος Paulos; c. 5 – c. 67), original name Saul of Tarsus (Greek: Σαῦλος Ταρσεύς Saulos Tarseus), was an apostle (though not one of the Twelve Apostles) who taught the gospel of Christ to the first-century world. He is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age. In the mid-30s to the mid-50s, he founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe. Paul used his status as both a Jew and aRoman citizen to advantage in his ministry to both Jewish and Roman audiences. Fourteen of the twenty-seven books in the New Testament have traditionally been attributed to Paul, and approximately half of the Acts of the Apostlesdeals with Paul's life and works. Seven of the epistles are undisputed by scholars as being authentic, with varying degrees of argument about the remainder. The Pauline authorship of the Epistle to the Hebrews, already doubted in the 2nd and 3rd centuries but almost unquestioningly accepted from the 5th to the 16th centuries, is now almost universally rejected by scholars. The other six are believed by some scholars to have come from followers writing in his name, using material from Paul's surviving letters and letters written by him that no longer survive. Other scholars argue that the idea of a pseudonymous author for the disputed epistles raises many problems. Today, his epistles continue to be vital roots of the theology, worship, and pastoral life in the Roman and Protestant traditions of the West, as......

Paul Friere

...Paul Freire (1921-1997) left a remarkable mark on the perception of the ways in which education can change the oppressed. He championed for the progressive practice and active learner’s participation in formulating how education should be developed and implemented. According to him, education is never neutral; it is manipulated by those in power to oppress their subjects. The humanization process of education is a state where no one is subject or object over the other. Through education, the oppressed should be empowered to see the conditions that keep them in their current state (Flanagan, 2005). By understanding that their predicament is not natural the oppressed should then discover alternatives to what had been perceived as natural “Education empowers the oppressed to discover alternatives to situations which have been taken as natural, necessary and unchangeable” (Flanagan, 2005 p. 186). Paul Freire’s contribution to overcoming this problem was through reversing the depository position of students, encouraging the creativity of the student to be in accordance with their lived experiences, promoting freedom, the praxis of thought and action and dialogue that incorporates charity, faith and hope (Gadotti, 1994). William Brickman greatly contributed the field of comparative and international education. He is also the founder of Comparative Education Society. Through wide research, travels and participation in other cultures William Brickman encouraged the joint......

...Paul Paul was man who not only contributed tremendously to the Old Testament works, who also spearheaded the spread of the Gospel to Asia, Africa and India. Paul or formal know as Saul was Roman born citizen per Acts 22:28. Saul, respectfully, was born some time between 5 A.D. and 5 B.C. Little is know about Saul up bringing other than he was a “ Pharisee, son of Pharisee” Much of what Christians know of Saul, is her encounter with the angel of Jesus on the Damascus Road. Paul, or Saul at the time; was in route to persecute the Christians. It was then Saul converted to Christianity and became Paul. It was also during this encounter that Paul was blinded. He was let to the city of Damascus with assistance due to his blindness. After 3 days his sight was restored. From this point forward Paul would travel the known world spreading the Gospel from Europe to Asia. Paul would even be arrested and imprisoned for spreading the Gospel. It was assume that he was telling people to go against the law. But that was not his goal. Paul also wrote 13 to 14 books in the bible. The reason for there not being an exact number is because the book of Hebrew is still being debated as a book the Paul wrote. Paul is one of many figures of Christian history that help shape what we practice and teach today. How interesting it would be to have a discussion with such a culture and well rounded individual.

Reading Paul

...Political Paul: Factual or Fraudulent? “Reading Paul” by Michael J. Gorman is an introductory text to both Paul and his gospel. In the early stages of the novel, it introduces the reader to the character Paul and his mission—to spread a powerful word of good news that would establish “an international network of transformed, peaceable, multicultural communities worshipping and obeying one true God” (pg. 22). Mentioning Paul’s transformation from adversary to apostle of Jesus Christ, the novel explores the missionary trips and letters of Paul—both disputed and undisputed—to the various Christian communities. In addition, hallmarks of the apostle are explained as well such as: inclusion of Gentiles, commitments to non-violence, the value in suffering, and reconciliation. Diverting to the heart of the novel, Gorman creates eight themes, or “Paul’s big ideas”, that are evident throughout Pauline texts. The eight “big ideas” Gorman presents surround God, Christ, us, and the bonds that exist between one another. The first four of these focuses on Paul’s ideology of the imminent end and the role Jesus plays in the transition. The first of these describes the phrase “In the fullness of time”. According to Gorman, “the event of Jesus Christ was God’s perfectly timed means of effecting the transition from this age to the age to come” (pg. 59). This age to come occurs on a timeline that encompasses (i.) the death and resurrection of Jesus, (ii.) the current overlap of the ages, and ends...

Letters from Paul

...Running head: ROMANS: A TIMELESS LETTER FROM PAUL ROMANS: A TIMELESS LETTER FROM PAUL T Staggs ROMANS: A TIMELESS LETTER FROM PAUL Thesis The headline in the morning paper reads: THE CURSE of SIN NATURE-All Humans are Born with it (Stewart, n.d.). Many people would be drawn to the ‘story’ because bad news sells. Few would read it with an open mind, most would feel a self-righteous indignation. “Where is the good news in all this?” We continue to read. Turning the page we see THERE IS AN ANSWER! SALVATION FOR ONE AND ALL THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. The scenario is not as farfetched as it may sound. In the Book of Romans, Paul wrote a letter to Jews and Gentiles alike that brought such news. ROMANS: A TIMELESS LETTER FROM PAUL Romans: A Timeless Letter from Paul The Natural World With his words, God formed a perfect world in 6 days. Since the beginning, mankind has been able to see that the world around them is of God. Paul writes: Since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities his eternal power and divine nature have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse ( Romans 1:19-20 NIV). He is writing to Jews and Gentiles alike, none are without sin. Time has not changed these truths. Some deny God’s existence at all but will use His name as an expletive to make their point. ......

...Paul, born Saul, was borne in Tarsus which was considered an epicenter of knowledge. This speaks of where Paul received his education and understanding of many things. Paul was a Roman citizen and although the scripture does not address where his citizenship came from it helped all throughout his ministry. Paul in Acts 18:3 is listed as a tentmaker and we can make the connection from 1 Thessalonians2:9 that this was done to offset his living expenses lessening his burden to the believers. Paul trained under Gamaliel in Acts 22:3-4 we see that he learned to be zealous for God and that he persecuted the followers of Jesus. The Bible then tells us of how Jesus interrupted Paul’s life. Paul chronology in the Bible only contains a few markers but without external evidence of Paul’s chronology they are still useless. The most important external evidence of Paul’s chronology is the Gallio Inscription which gives us an estimate of when Paul appeared before Gallio in Acts 18:12-17. After Paul’s conversion in Acts 9 Jesus sends him to Damascus to receive his sight back and receive instruction. Acts 9:20 says, immediately he began proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues: “He is the Son of God.” Then it seems that after his conversion he went to Jerusalem three years later, and then again eleven years later. The importance of Paul’s conversion in Galatians 1 signifies that the conversion is the reference point for all dating. Paul began in Damascus proclaiming in the synagogue, Acts......
