Schizophrenia And Its Effects On An American Family: A Call To Action For The 21st Century, Cynthia Newton Captain 2017 Dominican University of California

Schizophrenia And Its Effects On An American Family: A Call To Action For The 21st Century, Cynthia Newton Captain

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

Our country’s healthcare system is at a moral crossroads. The way we treat those whom we call “the homeless” is deplorable. The majority of the homeless are mentally ill and need treatment. Our country needs to treat those with the severe brain diseases of schizophrenia, schizo-affective disorder, and bi-polar disorder just as we would Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. Those with severe mental illness, who have no insight into their illness, should not be allowed to dictate their own treatment. If a homeless person is brought to San Francisco General Hospital and is found to be a ...

White-Ch6-Groundingreligion2.Pdf, Carol W. White

Carol White


One effective way of addressing race and ethnicity within the paradigm of ecology and religion is through the lens of religious naturalism. Religious naturalism shifts our thinking back to ourselves as natural processes, encouraging us to question our values, behaviors, and resource uses as we conceive and enact our relationalitywith each other and the more-than-human worlds.
 
I first describe the presence of white supremacy in United States to help contextualize historical and current problems related to race and ethnicity in ecological movements, as well as the lack of full religious reflection and problematic responses to them. I also discuss key ...

Who's Cursed - And Why?, Norman H. Young 2017 Avondale College of Higher Education

Who's Cursed - And Why?, Norman H. Young

Norman Young

The meaning of almost every phrase in Gal 3:10-14 is disputed. Scholars have very diverse opinions about the intended referent of όσοι. . . έξ έργων νόμου; why this group is under a curse; how Pauls proof text (Deut 27:26) supports his opening statement; whether there is an implied premise in his argument or not; what point he is hoping to make by juxtaposing Hab 2:4 with Lev 18:5; and whether the first person plurals refer exclusively to Jews or also include the Gentiles. This essay contends that the key to resolving these debated points is found in ...

The Flogging Of Jesus In The Fourth Gospel, Norman H. Young 2017 Avondale College of Higher Education

The Flogging Of Jesus In The Fourth Gospel, Norman H. Young

Norman Young

The Fourth Gospel’s (FG) account of Jesus’ trial before Pontius Pilate has some affinities with Mark and-to a lesser degree-with Luke’s narrative; but overall, John marches according to his own drum-beat. The most obvious difference between the FG’s account of the Roman Trial and the Synoptics is their length. The FG devotes 593 words to its account (18.28-19.16) of the trial compared with 338 words for Matthew (27.11- 31), 265 for Mark (15.1-20), and 252 for Luke (23.1-5, 13-25). However, a more startling difference is the FG’s positioning of the scourging ...

The Epistle To The Hebrews As Pastoral Encouragement, Norman H. Young 2017 Avondale College of Higher Education

The Epistle To The Hebrews As Pastoral Encouragement, Norman H. Young

Norman Young

The author of the Epistle to the Hebrews writes to a small group of former Jews, who are now followers of Christ. They have suffered much on account of their commitment to Jesus, and many of them have faltered in their pilgrimage of faith.Their pastor is temporarily absent from the group, so he writes to encourage them to persevere, and to warn them of the serious implications of abandoning their faith in Jesus.

An Aristophanic Contrast To Philippians 2.6–71, Norman H. Young 2017 Avondale College

An Aristophanic Contrast To Philippians 2.6–71, Norman H. Young

Norman Young

Commentators often note that the emphasis in Phil 2.6–7 on Christ's selfless giving is quite contrary to pagan concepts of divinity. N. T. Wright, for example, writes that αρπαγμος, when construed as an abstract noun meaning ‘snatching’, ‘grasping’, or ‘getting’, ‘refers, intransitively, to a particular way of life, namely, that which characterized pagan rulers, and indeed pagan gods and goddesses such as the Philippians might have worshipped in their pre-Christian days’. Yet no commentator to my knowledge has referred to the excellent example of the grasping nature of pagan deities found in Aristophanes’ comedy the Ecclesiazusae (‘Women ...
