Is Science in the Bible? The need to answer this very question has come about all too often throughout time. It has at times driven a wedge between men because in order to gain knowledge and understanding of the truths of the world, Science deems it necessary to prove the truths by presenting the facts through a systematic process. The Bible on the other hand is presented to man by God and offers knowledge of the truths of the world through having faith and building a relationship with Him, which brings forth the knowledge needed to understand the world. In fact many times being a Christian can mean it must be impossible to be a scientist at the same time. But what many people do not understand is that Christianity and science are quite compatible. It has also been said that Science and Scripture are in no way at odds with each other but rather two distinct ways of thinking. On one hand are the believers of creation whom take the Bible as the only truth needed to understand the world. While on the other hand stands the evolutionist who seeks to explain and understand the truths of the world created by a God that cannot be seen or touched.
For many years man has worked diligently to explain and prove the phenomena of the universe. This field of study as we know it is called Science. In today’s world Science can best be described as a systematic method used by scientists to prove the phenomena of the universe through observations, measurements, testing and documented results. This systematic approach intends to find answers to many questions, yet many times questions still remain unanswered. Science also brings with it many opinions and numerous results that may or may not bring forth the proof needed to satisfy the curiosity of man. In fact Science is defined in the dictionary as “a branch of knowledge or study dealing with a body of facts or truths…...

...Biblical Integration Paper: Group 1 Paul Cobb Anastasie Destouche Jennifer Kearns Paul Pirkle Mark Ricker Liberty University Abstract Servant-leadership is widely researched and discussed from a secular and Christian worldview (Fischer, 2010; see also Blanchard & Hodges, 2005). A Christian is called to follow God in all he does but life experiences can be conflicting in dealing with the spiritual and secular context; however, Christ wants his followers to operate within the context of the secular world. True servant-leadership is to emulate how Jesus led those around him - with complete selflessness and by serving others. Moreover, it is challenging for humans to be servant-leaders as they often desire personal recognition in life; yet, dedication to the Word and quiet reflection in God can help one to lead like Jesus. Larry Spears labeled Greenleaf a Grandfather of empowerment movement in business leadership (Greenleaf, 1996) because of his zeal toward servant-leadership. Greenleaf’s viewpoint, though commendable, conflicts with biblical principles. Thus, this paper analyzes Greenleaf’s work from a Christian worldview and institutes a biblical basis for servant leadership.

...image and likeness. So, as children of God we must be a responsible stewards of God’s Creation. We, as human individuals possesses dignity of a person, who is not just something but someone. As a youth of today, We must make a difference that can help God’s nation. I get this verse from the bible “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love,” I think, “Good idea. God, I ask you to work in my life to make me humble, gentle and patient with others. You know it’s not my nature to be that way with all people. Teach me how.” In other words, I continue to trust Him, continue to rely on Him, asking God to do in my life what He has just spoken to me about. When my teacher in R.E subject introduces about the INTEGRATION ACTIVITY, It was like I felt happiness and a little bit nervousness. Happy in the sense that I can help others through this activity, that I can preach the good news of God in my own little ways and lastly I can serve God through this activity. In contrary, nervous because Am I really worthy to be a preacher of the good news to children? And Can I really do this task? After how many days of teaching about the bible, I reflected about the queries that really left on my mind. The answers were all “YES,I can”. A simple person like me can also know how to be a leader, how to become a servant, a teacher, and how to be hero. All of us can serve God in our own simple ways .Nothing is impossible, Just have Faith.Let the Word of God......

...across the message will have to take care of the person immediate need first. For eg: you can’t try to tell a hungry man about god, when he is starving. He will not receive the message; because its main focus will be on the hunger he has, but if you feed him and then tell him about god, the message will be better receive. Christianity (God) is the master healer and with the love and care of Christians through God we can heal this world. When we understand how people think, then we can help heal the world by meeting people on their own level. With this said, one can asserts that science and religion do not conflict. PSYCHOLOGIST WHO SUPPORTS INTEGRATION According to (2000), Johnson, E, & Jones, S. (Eds.). Psychology and Christianity: Four views Downer Grove.IL: Intervarsity Press. Gary Collin a psychologist argues that integration has practical value in that it allows Christian to care for people through psychological counseling. Christian counselors can provide healing through God’s power even though they are imperfect themselves. Collins believes that God reveals himself in both the bible and through the world and that we need to bring these two sources of knowledge together to best understand people. However, the bible provides a stronger foundation for understanding people than mainstream psychology does because the bible address such issues as how sins affect human behavior The origin and ultimate future of human life, and our purposes of living.

...Automated Continuous Integration with Jenkins and CloudBees 3 Jenkins on-prem support 3 Free & enterprise plugins 3 Jenkins in the cloud with DEV@cloud DEPLOY DEPLOY DEPLOY ABOUT CONTINUOUS DELIVERY Continuous delivery is a set of patterns and best practices that can help software teams dramatically improve the pace and quality of their software delivery. Instead of infrequently carrying out relatively big releases, teams practicing continuous delivery aspire to deliver smaller batches of change into production, but much more frequently than typical - weekly, daily, or potentially multiple releases per day. This Refcard explains this in more detail, giving guidance, advice, and best practices to development and operations teams looking to move from traditional release cycles towards continuous delivery. The first thing you will need to automate is the process of compiling and turning developers’ source code into deployment-ready artifacts. Though most software developers make use of tools such as Make, Ant, Maven and NuGet to manage their builds and packaging, many teams still have manual steps that they need to carry out before they have artifacts that are ready for release. These steps can represent a significant barrier to achieving continuous delivery. For instance, if you release every three months, manually building an installer is not too onerous. If you wish to release multiple times per day or week however, it would be better if this task were......

...Managing Supplier Integration into Product Development: A Literature Review and Conceptual Model Finn Wynstra and Ferrie van Echtelt Eindhoven Centre for Innovation Studies/Institute for Purchasing & Supply Development, Eindhoven University of Technology, PO Box 513 - 5600 MB Eindhoven, Netherlands Tel. +31 40 2473841, Fax +31 40 2465949, j.y.f.wynstra@tm.tue.nl, f.e.a.v.echtelt@tm.tue.nl Abstract This paper presents a critical literature review concerning the effects of involving suppliers in product development, the critical processes underlying the management of this involvement and the potential driving and enabling factors for managing supplier involvement in product development. Together they constitute the building blocks for a ‘input-throughput-output’ model that helps in understanding the crucial elements of how to manage supplier involvement in product development. This model draws on our previous work in this area, but focuses more clearly on the ‘inputs’ and ‘outputs’ of managing supplier involvement. Introduction to managing supplier integration in product development Literature on product innovation has been pervasively trying to distil the key ingredients for company success. Many of the internal and external actors that are involved in product development - and the interfaces between them - have been subjects of research. Especially the interface between R&D on the one side and marketing and customers on the other side has been investigated (Souder and......

...Taking your time when doing something rewards you with more and better results. Rushing or cheating leaves you empty and wanting more, wanting better. In life you have a lot of choices, different paths you can go down that lead to different things. Choosing the right path can be difficult because you don’t know where it’s going to lead. The best you can do is choose the most moral and good path. Doing that could lead you away from bad mistakes you may never be able to recover from. It could also lead to a fulfilling, happy life. Thinking ahead and planning strengthens your morality. Someone who is willing to work hard and be persistent has admirable integrity and will be rewarded. Choosing which path is the right choice requires honesty. You have to be honest with yourself about what your choices could really lead to and how they will affect your life. You also have to be honest with everyone you encounter. Being dishonest greatly hinders your chances of success and happiness. Your conscience will get the best of you, too, in the long run. Honesty protects your soul and your happiness, and it leads to an admirable life that others look up to and want to follow. Wisdom is something extremely valuable that you will always carry with you no matter what. Money and objects are replaceable, knowledge isn’t. Intelligence and understanding can get you farther in life, in many ways, than money can. With wealth usually come bad consequences. Wisdom and understanding are not like......

After the integration of all the subcomponents of our system, the system as a whole was tested on the testing network in Figure 2. The testing network is composed of a client application, a web server and a PC hosting Nedgty, interconnected by a direct connection. The client hosted applications were used to invoke the web service hosted by the web server. Client applications were implemented using ASP.Net and Java. Nedgty was hosted on a Linux OS that had the IPtables stored firewall installed on it, and used static route to redirect the traffic from the client to the server. The web services hosted on the web server were implemented using C# and hosted on an IIS server and java hosted on an Apache Axis server [8]. The testing network traffic was......

...Kim (2009), explains that internal integration and external integration have the ability to improve operational performance outcomes, such as cost, quality, delivery and flexibility however their impacts on product innovation are less understood due to their potential in facilitating exploration and exploitation. While studies have tried to show the positive impacts of internal integration and external integration on explorative innovations, due to the fact that internal integration and external integration together improve product innovations and exploitative innovations have a positive effect on explorative innovations, there are no comprehensive empirical evidence or theoretical explanation to show or support this argument (Lau et al., 2010). The research presented on this presentation will critically evaluate and explain how internal integration and external integration both individually and together affect product innovation. When separated, the individual effects of internal integration and external integration can be explained by information processing theory and relational view theory. However, for the combined effects of internal integration and external integration, we have to refer to the ambidexterity theory from the field of organizational studies as ambidextrous firms are found to benefit both the exploitation of existing resources as well as the exploration of new resources and they are additionally known to be more relatively innovative. This research will......

...Integration Paper Thiago DeSouza Psychology and the Bible Liberty University Abstract Integration for many years has been a topic of discussion between psychologists and Christian leaders. The debate between the two disciplines has been whether or not the two can coexist together or if the two disciplines should never merge. Epistemology, cosmology, and philosophical anthropology lays down the foundation for integration. Both disciplines seek to understand human behavior and both seek to fix what appears to be broken within humanity. Both disciplines seek for truth. Psychology seeks for truth through science and what has been observed, whereas the source for truth for Christianity is found in God through His Words and His Works. The two may not contradict. There are several models of integration and they look to explain what the relationship between psychology and Christianity ought to be. The Allies model, which is discussed in more depth, holds the view that truth is found in God’s Words and Works and that God is sovereign over all things. Integration Paper The integration of psychology and Christianity has been a topic of discussion for many years and will be for many more years to come. It is important that this discussion is not put aside but rather be openly discussed among members from both disciplines. There are many models within integration and they all offer their own perspectives on the relationship between psychology and Christianity. One is not......

...Individual Biblical Integration Project BUSI502-D02 Abstract The concept of Servant Leadership was pioneered by Robert Greenleaf in 1970. According to Greenleaf’s original concept, through the act of servant leadership we, as contemporary Christians, are attempting to lead as Jesus did. In short we are striving to be leaders/managers who serve instead of being served. Specifically, there are 10 Principles which are considered to be important characteristics of the servant leader. According to Spears’ article Practicing Servant-Leadership, these include listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the growth of people, and building community. Servant Leadership as a whole concept is deeply rooted in Biblical principles. Further, each of these individual traits are ‘backed up’ by Biblical doctrine and support. Through the utilization of these ten traits, the Servant leader is able to not only lead their team/people from their head, but to lead them with their heart. While the concept of Servant Leadership is relatively simple, it can be hard to apply to our everyday lives. In short, if we lead like Jesus; we will become more like Him. (Blanchard & Hodges, 2008) Spears (2004) summed up Greenleaf’s 10 characteristics of a servant leader. Listening The first trait is listening. A servant leader must listen to their co-workers ideas. Through this action, the leader is able to ascertain the will and......

Integration should be described and analysed not only theoretically but with the European case as framework. Finally, the conclusion may be presented showing all the benefits and drawbacks of integration. Table of contents Introduction 1 Analysis 2 Conclusion 9 Bibliography 11 Appendix 13 Introduction The aim of this project is to present, characterize, examine and analyse the nature and sense of the European integration. In order to achieve it some of the most important trade theories will be presented. Not only the classic ones but also some of the more recent ones, which will allow the analysis to fundament and give an accurate background to the idea of integration and all its components. The study should be focalized into the old classical trade theories of Absolute and Comparative Advantages, the Heckscher-Ohlin model and its Samuelson variation. Then, some of the newest classical trade theories such as the New Trade theory and the International Product Life Cycle theory will be discussed. Finally, it will be mentioned one new contemporary trade theory made by Michael Porter´s referring to the national competitive advantages. The main intention of presenting those theories is to have the proper theoretic framework so to develop and explain the case of the European integration among the......

...Faith Integration Paper Vivian Li Azusa Pacific University UNRS 404 – Nursing Care of Children Professor Janette Tingson July 18, 2016 Faith Integration Paper Child abuse is a serious problem that can have lasting harmful effects on its victims. The goal in preventing child abuse is to stop this violence from happening in the first place. Safe and stable environment for all children can prevent abuse and help all children reach their full potential (Children’s Bureau, 2016). Child abuse and neglect are complex problems rooted in unhealthy environments. According to CDC (2016), preventing child abuse and neglect requires a comprehensive approach that influences all levels of the social societal culture, community involvement, relationships among families and neighbors, and individual behaviors. “Effective prevention strategies focus on modifying policies, practices, and societal norms to create safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments” (CDC, 2016). Parenting is one of the toughest and most important jobs, and we all have a stake in ensuring that parents have access to the resources and support they need to be successful. Entire communities can play a role in helping families find the strength they need to raise safe, healthy, and productive children. As a Christian and a nurse, I believe to prevent child abuse is one of our mission that God given us, we should get to know our neighbors, because we all know that problems seem less overwhelming when......

...Integration Integration is the process of attaining close and seamless coordination between several departments, groups, organization, systems, etc. (Integration). Regional Integration is “an arrangement for enhancing cooperation through regional rules and institutions entered into by states of the same region. Regional integration could have as its objective political or economic goals or in some cases, a business initiative aimed at broader security and commercial purposes. Regional integration could have an intergovernmental or supranational organization” (Regional Integration). Integration usually occurs between several types of countries which can be labelled into three categories: these are developed countries, developing countries and underdeveloped countries. Interaction between these countries in the different categories leads to integration among these countries. Integration, especially regional integration, is found among, developed and developing countries, between just developing countries and or developed and underdeveloped countries. Trade is a major core aspect which builds integration between countries, also their geographic location. Countries which have a common geographical location develop a regional integration among companies. An example is Caribbean Community (CARICOM). In the article , The Building Blocks of Successful Regional Integration Lessons for CSME from other Integration Schemes, the authors Rachel Simms and Errol Simms quoted......
