War And Worship from the Author: Susan Möller-Wiering. War and Worship concerns textile deposits from the bog sites of Thorsberg in Germany and Nydam, Vimose and Illerup Ådal in Denmark. All four sites are well-known for containing a substantial amount of archaeological materials, particularly weapons, but they also contain, as integral parts of the weapon deposits, a smaller number of preserved textiles, which nevertheless constitute outstanding assemblages. With the exception of Thorsberg, publications dealing particularly with textiles from weapon deposits are almost non-existent. The textiles from each site are analysed, then compared to one another and described as a unit characterising the particular site. Comparisons are then made between the four sites, with emphasis on the overall context. A final chapter by Lise Ræder Knudsen analyses tablet-woven textiles in the deposits, a textile technique used to make bands, edges and borders. Although the state of preservation of the textiles at the different locations varies hugely, the research has extracted a large amount of information allowing conclusions on status, origin, function and role in the deposits to be drawn. The fabrics presented here were, unquestionably, consecrated textiles. They had been worn by the defeated foreign warriors during the battle and were considered worthy as sacrificial offerings to the gods. Some individual high-status textiles were perceived to have a value comparable to certain metal items. Others - probably the majority - were used for covering and wrapping other offerings for the subsequent sacrifice. All were committed to the lakes in a sacred act of remembrance to celebrate victorious battles.

Worship Is 4 War from the Author: Nicole Monique. Your Worship is a weapon of war against evil desires, iniquitous cycles, pain and sin. Your worship is designed to defeat not only the evil that comes against you on the outside, but the evil that at times dwells within. Most evil that comes against us, gains access to us through something that is at work within us. The enemy knows what's at work in you, and he will send something to entice you in it. The book of James is clear when stating this, "James 1:14(NIV)...But each person is tempted when they are dragged away by their own evil desire and enticed." It's those evil desires that can become sin. You must starve those evil desires, and stop feeding what needs to DIE. You must know your weakness and turn to Worship to fight. Worship is a weapon to heal from within. It equips us for fighting the battles outside of us and those raging to keep us in sin. Don't let a lack of healing from past pain, and offenses hinder your worship and growth. Don't let evil desires and past pain still the light of God's shine and God's glow. Get your armor on, and join the fight. Guard the garden of your heart and keep all evil OUT! Pick up your sword, and open your mouth! Your praise is a weapon and your worship will WIN the fight. You were created 4 worship, and your WORSHIP is 4 War!

Worship Civil War And Community 1638 1660 from the Author: Chris R. Langley. This is the first study of the interaction between warfare and national religious practice during the British Civil Wars. Using hundreds of neglected local documents, this work explores the manner in which civil conflict, invasion and military occupation affected religious practice. As Churches elsewhere in Britain and Ireland were dismantled and the country was invaded by a foreign English army, mid-seventeenth-century Scotland provides an important, yet neglected, point of entry in exploring the intersection between early modern warfare and religious practice. The book establishes a fresh way of looking at the conflicts of the mid-seventeenth century. No other study has explored how soldiers were quartered or marched in close proximity to parish worship, how their presence affected worship patterns and how the very idea of conflict in the mid-seventeenth century impacted upon the day-to-day lives of worshippers. Using the signing of the National Covenant in 1638 as its starting point, this perspective emphasises flexibility in religious practice and the dialogue between local communities, religious leaders and troops as a critical element in the experience of war.

Holy Wars from the Author: Don Wigton. Holy Wars “is the most memorable book on the subject of church music I've ever read. . . Your work is exquisite! ” Frank Pooler Professor/Director Cal State Long Beach University Choir. Holy Wars is a comprehensive worship study written for every believer who seeks to live a life of true biblical worship within the cultural storm that we find ourselves today. It is an intimate book written for the benefit of promoting a personal relationship with Jesus Christ according to the guidance of God’s Word. When we think of “Holy Wars” one might picture terrorism. But there is a Holy War raging within the church itself that is proving to be of far more consequence than Islamic dread. Because this war is engaged within the worship life of the people of God, the outcome could seriously undermine Christian orthodoxy and the Christian way of life for generations to come. As the result of the efforts of Church Growth advocates, congregations throughout America are contending over different notions of worship. The decisions that Christians make in that regard will determine the shape and influence of the Church and the nature of our society over the next century. We can find answers within this ongoing battle once we have come to a full understanding of the nature of biblical worship. Many times manipulative entertainment schemes, attempts to conform to the world, watered-down theology, church politics, mediocre music and unbiblical worship forms drag the people of God away from their true calling. Holy Wars delves into each of these areas of church life to discern what is going wrong while offering specific biblical remedies.
