Sometimes it is personal, about a significant event, for example. Or you can be arguing about two contrasting viewpoints. In another essay you may be evaluating the work of someone else perhaps a famous writer. I have found that essays for different subjects, have different requirements.
This word has many shades of meaning which lexicographers are somewhat puzzled to differentiate sharply. As our interest in it here centres around its ethical and religious significance, we shall treat it only with reference to the ideas attached to it in Holy Scripture and theology.
Scripture In the English version of the Bible the word Glory, one of the commonest in the Scripture, is used to translate several Hebrew terms in the Old Testamentand the Greek doxa in the New Testament.
Sometimes the Catholic versions employ brightness, where others use glory. When this occurs, the original signifies, as it frequently does elsewhere, a physical, visible phenomenon. This meaning is found for instance in Exodus In very many places the term is employed to signify the witness which the created universe bears to the nature of its Creator, as an effect reveals the character of its cause.
Frequently in the New Testament it signifies a manifestation of the Divine Majesty, truthgoodness or some other attribute through His incarnate Son, as, for instance, in John 1: Here too, as elsewhere, we find the idea that the perception of this manifested truth works towards a union of man with God.
In other passages glory is equivalent to praise rendered to God in acknowledgment of His majesty and perfections manifested objectively in the world, or through supernatural revelation: The term is used also to mean judgment on personal worth, in which sense the Greek doxa reflects the signification of the cognate verb dokeo: Lastly, glory is the name given to the blessedness of the future life in which the soul is united to God: The texts cited above are representative of multitudes similar in tenor, scattered throughout the sacred writings.
Theological The radical concept present under various modifications in all the above expressions is rendered by St. Augustine as clara notitia cum laude, "brilliant celebrity with praise". The philosopher and theologian have accepted this definition as the centre around which they correlate their doctrine regarding glory, divine and human.
Divine glory The Eternal God has by an act of His will created, that is, has brought into being from nothingness, all things that are. Infinite Intelligence, He could not act aimlessly; He had an objective for His action: He created with a purpose; He destined His creatures to some end.
That end was, could be, no other than Himself; for nothing existed but Himself, nothing but Himself could be an end worthy of His action.
Did He, then, create in order that from His creatures He might derive some benefit? That, for example, as some present-day theories pretend, through the evolution of things toward a higher perfection the sum of His Being might be enlarged or perfected?
Or that man by co-operating with Him might aid Him in the elimination of evil which He by Himself is unable to cast out?
No; such conceits are incompatible with the true concept of God.It happened during AHA. I was sitting at home, revising my manuscript introduction and feeling jealous of all of my historian friends at the conference, when I got an email telling me my last (and best) hope for a tenure-track job this year had evaporated.
In my high school yearbook there is a note from a girl who wrote, "I like you even though you are very mean." I do not remember the girl who wrote this note. Rather, all standards by which things may be measured, including morals and values, come from human beings and are dependent on the human condition.
