Theology of Suffering Worksheets 2

Worksheet #2—1: Death of humans and livestock—by fire of God (1:16), by the sword (1:17), and by wind (1:18); theft of livestock—raiders (1:17). Painful sores—Satan (2:7). All: caused by Satan, with God’s permission.

  1. While I’ve never exactly prayed a prayer like the one Job prays, I’ve certainly felt that way sometimes. I think when faced with circumstances of very profound loss (and I’ve been there a couple times in my life), it’s natural to think this way, and wish one was never born.
  2. Firstly, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar all consistently aver that Job is at fault: he has sinned in some way, no matter how righteous he may seem, and God is doing all of this to punish him. However, Elihu maintains that they are wrong: God is absolutely righteous and just, and there is no reason to believe He is punishing Job. On the other hand, Job is wrong for thinking that God is being unjust, because God cannot be unjust.
  3. Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar counsel Job to repent of his sins in order to be relieved of his suffering—theirs is a very simplistic theodicy. Elihu, however, urges Job to trust in God’s sovereignty and righteousness, and praise Him.
  4. Against the three, Job maintains that he cannot repent of sins he has not committed. He bitterly laments what he perceives as injustice. However, he does not get a chance to respond to Elihu, because God interjects to challenge him.
  5. I guess if I’m being honest, it’s a little hard to read about what Job went through, and then to see God challenge him on top of all of that in 38:1-40:2, and then again from 40:6 on. That said, I understand the context and why God did it.
  6. God’s challenge to Job is whether Job can truly presume to discredit God’s justice, given that Job cannot carry out justice in the way that God can because he lacks the power.
  7. The book of Job teaches the reader that suffering can come to good people, and it is not simply and necessarily a punishment for sins. It also teaches the reader that God’s justice is absolute, and we should always trust in God and always praise Him.

What Consists of a Health Care Team?

A health care treatment team must be well diversified, so that the patients of the workers get the best treatment possible. There are several categories of health care careers that constitute a health care team. Primary care physicians, nurses, partners and associates, a rehab team and occupational therapists, a variety of assistants and aides, as well as administrative members. Just like a sports team or any other team, if a health care team does not all work together, they will not succeed. Unfortunately in the health care profession, unlike in sports, peoples lives are on the line on a daily basis relying on the teams ability to communicate effectively and treat the patients properly.

In the discussion presented herein, one particular act towards improving healthcare service shall be given particular attention to for analysis.

Appellee Goldberg v. Appalent Kelly

Docket #62

397 US 254 (1970)

Procedural History:

John Kelly was the leader of a group of people who were receiving benefits through either the federal program Families with Dependant Children, or a New York State monetary housing assistance programs. Before John Kelly’s suit, it was commonplace for the State of New York to discontinue aid to citizens without any benefit of appeal or closer examination. Many of these citizens attempted to recover benefits, only to find a grueling appeals process that was not based on evidence, examination, or cross-examination. Kelly represented a large line of people who had not received notice before losing their aid. When John Kelly made it a Constitutional issue, and it was accepted as a case into the Supreme Court, the State of New York then tried to implement a hearing process.

Water: An Overlooked Nutrient

As requested, I have analyzed the nutrient benefits of Powerade, Gatorade and water and after comparing the data, it seems that water is the most efficient and cost effective way for people to stay hydrated. Although Powerade and Gatorade are packed with electrolytes which aid in hydration, the sugar in the drinks counteracts the positive benefits of the supposed “health drinks.” When it comes to hydrating, water does just as good of a job as Powerade and Gatorade to help the body restore itself from heat or exercise.

Patient Autonomy vs. The Ethical Obligations of the Medical Community: The Case of Dax Cowart

The judgment from an ethical perspective concerning whether or not the doctors and nurses treating Dax Cowart were ultimately ethical in character depends on deciding whether the autonomy of the patient or the duty of the medical community to save lives takes precedent. This seems to be an irreconcilable conflict when the patient’s wishes contradict the duty of the medical community, in so far as the latter, for example, is founded on ethical commitments to the Hippocratic oath, which denote the obligation to attempt to save the patient’s life. To support Dax’s decision, therefore, can only be argued from the perspective of the patient’s autonomy. However, it seems like this is a symptom of our individualistic culture: everything ultimately comes down to some idealized version of the individual, who is viewed as the basic element of all society. In this case, however, the individual is treated as a sort of “all-knowing” entity. But this is not how our existence itself is structured: it is based on relationships, and conceding patient autonomy above all else replaces this with an almost egotistical individuality. The medical community are experts in the field and therefore have a knowledge of the situation that is in most cases beyond those of the patient: furthermore, the medical community has its clear ethical duties to uphold. In this regard, the decision to save Dax despite his protests, was firstly, the medical community’s fulfilment of their occupational obligations, and thus they acted ethically according to this duty, and, secondly, it is an acknowledgement that some decisions perhaps are too much for an individual to make, especially an individual who has suffered trauma from such a devastating injury.

The main psychoactive chemical in marijuana is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC (National Institute on Drug Abuse). The use of marijuana and the effects of THC on humans has been a heated debate for decades.

Portraitures in the 15th Century

A portrait is typically defined as a representation of a specific individual. A portrait does not merely record the features of a person, but it also says something about who the person is, offering a true sense of the person’s presence. Portraits in the 15th century were not paintings in their own right, but instead, important symbols of Christian subjects. European portraiture in the 15th century and throughout the Renaissance took on a much more realistic nature than the paintings for the 13th and 14th century.

Discussion Post on Giotto’s Arena Chapel

Giotto, a Florentine artist from the early 14th century, is famous for his painting of various biblical scenes on the walls and ceilings of the Arena Chapel in Venito, Italy. Giotto had a new approach to realism and naturalism in painting and transformed the tiny, barrel-vaulted chamber into a theater in which the individual scenes, lit from the west and viewed from the center, appear to take place in real space. Giotto’s work was much more realistic and three dimensional, using the gestures and positions of the figures to add to the realism of the work. This was a new shift for paintings of the time and was much more representational and realistic than works painted previously- the Arena Chapel is Giotto’s most famous work for good reason.

Ethics Education and Theoretical Research Involving College Students

Introduction

College students should learn that theory is a basic fundamental element of research. The definition of the term theory and what it constitutes is debated by the world’s researchers (Gelso, 2006; Harlow, 2009; Henderikus, 2007).Most researchers and theorists use typologies and classifications systems in describing the types of theories, in the context of purpose, boundaries, functions, and goals (Gay & Weaver, 2011).  Gelso (2006) defined a theory using eight constructs.  These included: Descriptive ability, heuristic value, explanatory power, integration, clarity, testability, parsimony, comprehensiveness, and delimitation.  These eight constructs are based on the fact that theory produces research and research generates and refines theory (Gelso, 2006).  Harlow (2009) suggested that theory lacks a fixed and universal meaning although considering the competing research paradigms, theory might mean a determining law, or a system of laws according to the natural sciences.  He also argued that theory can mean a construct or set of constructs for ordering and enhancing the understanding of phenomena. Therefore, this section will focus on how students can utilize research and theory and how they are related.  First, students should be aware of the following reasons that show the importance of theory in research; these will provide the baseline for this study;
