Film analysis Guess Who and Guess whos comming to dinner - The Hollywood movie “Guess Who” (2005) is a remake of “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” (1967).

I has been hard to observe my grades going from practically straight A's as a freshman to the sad state of nearly having my credits denied this senior year. But now that I know that one has to face the responsibilities for every decision one makes, I might be ready to make some smart ones.No, I do not think that I can become a brain surgeon or a world-renowned scientist or,...   [tags: essays research papers] 427 words

Exploring the Destiny of the Unevangelized and the Nature of Hell - Question: What is the destiny of the unevangelized. Answer: This is a hard question. How can one come to grips with what the Bible seems to teach and with the desire in our hearts. Does not the Bible teach that Jesus is a loving God that wants all to go to heaven. How can a loving God send anyone to hell. If Christ indeed sends some to hell how can we say He is loving. These are all great question and ones that are hard to answer but there is an answer. God does everything He does, for a reason (Romans 8:28), and God does want all to come to Him (John 1:12; Romans 3:10)....   [tags: theology, bible]
