What was Christian life like before Constantine?

RonPaulCurriculum Western Civilization Essay

“What was Christian life like between the famous letter of Pliny until the reign of Constantine?”

From the famous letter of Pliny to the reign of Constantine, Christian life was awful. Christians were misunderstood, blamed for no reason, and were mistreated. Until the reign of Constantine, it was horrible, most Christians were forced to hide their religion or be killed.

Most of the good emperors were fine with it, as long as you don’t shout it out to the public that you’re a Christian. But one of the worst emperors was Diocletian, he made all the Christians worship a statue of him, and those who refused to were killed.

The Christians were misunderstood most of all the time and were prosecuted because of it. One misunderstanding was cannibalism. One of the ways Christians remember Jesus Christ was consuming his flesh and blood, bread represented his flesh and wine presented his blood, and anyone would mistake this as cannibalism, but were not given full details, so they were killed for cannibalism.

For a long time the Christians were mistreated and mistaken, but when Constantine came into power in 306, he and Licinius issued an edict saying how Christians should now be treated with kindness, and in 313 the Edict of Milan was publicly issued.

So in conclusion, Christian life was horrible in those days, they killed for no reason, just because they were Christians, and were awfully treated, but that all turned around when Constantine and Licinius issued the Edict of Milan in 313. I hope you liked this essay, and have a great day!

I will sell my business when it makes a profit of [$??] a year, so that I can [??]

RonPaulCurriculum Business I Essay

“I will sell my business when it makes a profit of [$??] a year, so that I can [??].” So today’s question is a bit hard to answer. I haven’t even thought of starting a business, or what I’ll be selling, I guess having a real estate business would work. But anyway, an average yearly income is $100,000 or a little less, I would like to at least make above average yearly income, maybe around $150,000 a year which would be $12,500 a month.

Before I even start thinking of selling my business, I have to build my business. When building a business you must keep yourself busy with goals. For example, my goal should be first finishing my schoolwork, then start thinking about getting income.

Now, this isn’t an essay about how to start a business, it’s about when will I sell my business so that I can ??. I probably won’t sell my business until retiring age, around 60s or earlier if I can, then I will relieve myself of these duties and either appoint the next in line or sell it for extra cash.

Now to answer the “so that I can…..” question, around 50s or 60s is pretty old, so I can’t really to stuff like zip lining or scuba diving, I’ll probably do that when I was younger. But I’ll probably travel and just relax.

In conclusion, when I have my business, I’ll probably sell it or appoint the next successor when I’m in my 50s or 60s, so that I can lift the weight off my shoulders and just travel and spend time with my friends and family. I hope you liked this essay, and thanks for reading.

Christianity vs Greek Religion

RonPaulCurriculum Western Civilization Essay

How would you compare the teachings of Christianity, as described in the New Testament passages we read for this week, to the values cherished by earlier civilizations we have discussed (particularly the Greeks, and the values expressed in Homer’s works)?

So for today’s history essay, I am asked of how I would compare Christianity and Greek Religion, and if there’s anything common between it. There are some differences between them, for example, Christians are monotheistic, they believe in only one God who is omnipotent, but the Greeks were polytheistic, they believe in multiple gods, who have their own qualities, different strengths, and weakness.

The Greek gods described by Homer’s work were treacherous, unpredictable, and mischievous. They were to their necks with the other gods and were always seeking revenge. The people did what they could to please the Gods and sacrifice what they could. Each household would worship different Gods seeing that there were many different Gods.

Christianity, on the other hand, focused on God loving and caring about the people. They worshipped one God who was omnipotent, he was the Almighty, they prayed when they needed help, advice, etc.

There aren’t many similarities if any, Christianity focuses on loving God, but in Greek and Roman religion it’s more like, as long as you please the God then you are spared. The Greeks and Romans practiced syncretism, which means bringing other philosophies or gods and practicing them as their own, but Christianity didn’t include other beliefs, it just had its own and didn’t add anything.

In conclusion, Christianity is different from the other religions, they only believe in only one God who is omnipotent and caring, unlike the Greek or Roman religions where they were multiple gods, and these gods were reckless and were hastier. That’s it for this essay, I hope you liked it, and thanks for reading.

What can I cut out of my weekly schedule in order to increase my efficiency?

RonPaulCurriculum Business I Essay

“What can I cut out of my weekly schedule in order to increase my efficiency?”. To increase my efficiency, I’m gonna have to cut some slack off. I’m fine with my schedule right now, but I guess I can cut some stuff out. On the weekdays I wake up about 7:30 in the morning, and start my schoolwork 8-ish, then I have lunch 12:30-1-ish, then continue on my schoolwork, I finish 3:30ish, but if I have an essay to do then I finish between 4:30-5:00, and go to sleep at 10:30.

I don’t sleep late that often on the weekdays, I get about 9-10 hrs of sleep, so I don’t think I need to change my sleep schedule. But after dinner, I usually have a couple hours before I need to go to sleep, and that’s when my and brother and I watch Netflix, so I guess I can cut a bit, like only an hour of television before I go to bed, and do some reading.

Another thing is procrastination, I don’t have bad procrastination, but I do procrastinate. Like if I have an essay to do, but I don’t feel like doing it, so I do it tomorrow. I don’t do this constantly, but I do it, and I should tell myself to do it, so I don’t have to do it tomorrow.

Those two things are probably the things I should focus on, especially the procrastination, it’s not that bad, but if I want to increase my efficiency, I should do my work. I don’t have much to say, so I’m ending it here, thanks for reading.

Which three time-allocation changes could increase my productivity the most

RonPaulCurriculum Business I Essay

“Which three time-allocation changes could increase my productivity the most. Why?” Well, when I start my schoolwork I usually start off with my RonPaulCurriculum stuff, which includes my history, English, business, and science, which are usually 20-30 mins long each, then I do my math, which is by book.

My math is probably the most time consuming, it takes about 2-3 hrs, and it’s a big chunk of the day, and I think I should start my day off with my math because it’ll take it off my shoulders so I don’t need to think about it. And the RonPaulCurriculum stuff is more simple, it’s all by video.

The second thing I should change that might increase my productivity is, exercising/getting off my chair and get the blood moving. I’m homeschooled, so I don’t get out that much if I were in school, so a good thing to do in between my breaks, is probably doing some sit-ups or push-ups to get my blood moving and get myself energized. I heard that sitting down a lot is bad for your posture, body, etc. and I sit around all day, so getting up once in awhile is a good idea.

I can’t really think of a third thing I should change, so in conclusion, I’m just going to focus on exercising and get my blood moving and probably doing my math first. I know this essay is a bit short, but I hope you liked this essay. Thanks for reading.

The Five Good Emperors and The Pantheon

RonPaulCurriculum Western Civilization Essay

The first question for history is about the Five Good Emperors. “Why do historians tend to look with favor on the period of the five good emperors? What differences do you observe between that period and the period from the death of Augustus through the death of Domitian?”. Between, Augustus rule, the first Roman Emperor till the last emperor of the Julian-Claudian and Flavian dynasty, Domitian, it was hell and a big mess. Some were emperors described as a tyrant and had mental problems, one was sadistic, etc. it was all messed up, until the good five emperors.

The five emperors include Nerva(96-98AD), Trajan(98-117AD), Hadrian(117-138AD), Antoninus Pius(138-161AD), and Marcus Aurelius(161-180). Each one adopted a son and appointed him as the heir, eg. Nerva adopted Trajan, Trajan adopted Hadrian, etc. All except Marcus Aurelius, who had a son, Commodus, and named him his successor, but Commodus was unfit to be a ruler and was killed.

During their reigns, they lowered and lifted taxations, organized the construction of public buildings(Hadrian’s Wall, rebuilt the Pantheon, etc.), welcomed back citizens who were banished from the previous horrible emperors and gave them back their land, etc.

In conclusion, the five good emperors was well liked, and gave Rome some fresh air and take a break from all the problems from the previous era. But as soon as Aurelius appointed his biological son as heir, it went downhill again.

Today’s second question is to talk about one of the art I learned about earlier this week. The Pantheon is one of the places to see in Rome, it was built by Marcus Agrippa, then was burned down, but was rebuilt by Hadrian in 125 AD.

The Pantheon is one of the best lasting Ancient Roman building. In the front, there’s a portico, which is basically a porch with columns and a triangular roof, but on the inside, there’s a huge and beautiful dome with a hole at the top of the dome that lets light in called an oculus.

The diameter of the dome is 43.3 m(142 ft) and the height from the ground to the oculus is 43.3 m(142 ft), making a perfect sphere, compared to the U.S. Capitol dome who is only 96 ft in diameter. And it holds a record of the largest unreinforced concrete dome.

The oculus is not really useless, it acts a ventilation, and the only other opening was the doors who weighed a ton. The columns outside are 5ft in diameter, 39ft tall, and weighed 60 tons each! And let me tell you Hadrian had them carried from the Eastern Egypt mountains all the way to the Nile river, where it was put on a barge to Alexandria, and from their put on a ship to Rome.

In conclusion, the five good emperors were praised and well-liked by the public, did good things, compared to the Julian-Claudian and Flavian dynasty whereas some emperors were tyrants and just horrible, one wanted to be seen as a God, it was just awful. The Pantheon was burnt down, but rebuilt by Hadrian in 125 AD and is still in great shape, being one of the best-preserved building from Ancient Rome.
