Many nuns do live in monasteries and convents, but some live out in the community where they work, too. For example, if a nun was a leader in a university campus Catholic Student Center, she would probably live in a house somewhere near her work. A nun lives in a convent or a nunnery. Many nuns live… in convents (or nunneries), but some now live out the community. Roman Catholic Answer Nuns live in a monastery which can also be referred to as a cloister or an enclosure. The building itself is usually referred to as the monastery. The whole complex might be referred to as a monastery, or an abbey. Sisters are a separate case. This is all kind of confusing as nuns are called Sister, in many countries, but sisters are actually a different vocation from nuns. The residence for sisters is usually called a convent.

Answer . Yes, you just don't because you should love your wife and not want to look at other women.
Firstly God loves you so very much, He sent his son Jesus to take on the punishment of sin for every single person in the world. The sin that we have done and the sin that we still do. God can forgive ANY sin. Jesus was the friend of sinners. You have to acknowledge and truly believe that Jesus was …punished by crucifixion instead of you. Jesus is the only way to God. Just say a prayer to God saying sorry for everything that you have done wrong in your life and that you want to invite Jesus into your life. There is nothing that you can do, God does it all, the Holy Spirit will be in you from that point, you may feel a change straight away or it may take some time but Jesus and God will certainly be with you, just relax and be your self because God loves all His children and even when times feel hard and you are weak and are struggling to hold onto God, once you have said this prayer He will never let you go. If you are young you need to find a good church with modern songs and worship and good teachings and to be able to mix with other young Christians because as the saying goes iron sharpens iron. I will pray for you. ( Full Answer )

How to live your life by Alan McDougall . In order to grow through life one must first establish a harmony within oneself, harness all our natural talents, gifts, formal and non-formal education towards the essential goals in life. Chose early that which you love and do the utmost to make that… your career and you will not really have to work one day in your life. Establish a hierarchy of preferences and aim for those most realistic and highest on the list. Imagine you have only one year of life left and list the things you would do if this were all the time left for you. Incorporate this into the list, ranking all the events, and look at it. It should give you much food for thought in planning your journey through life. . Never ever, stop learning, even if you live to be one hundred years of age. Fascination with all things around you makes a rich and wonderful personality. A very high-developed sense of humour is of absolute prime importance in order to overcome the pitfalls of life. You might say, 'well that's all right for the young but I am middle aged or older, However no matter what ones age, do the suggested exercise and you will be amazed at the richness and opportunities out there still within your grasp. Life is rich and has so much to offer us all. Be positive in the midst of negativity by using that powerful tool, your sense of humour. Very important although not apparent to many persons is the absolute necessity of having a real soul mate and friend who travel's the road of life with you. This might not necessarily be you spouse, amazing as this sounds. They are often not our eternal soul mate, strange as this might be to some. They are the ones with which we will share eternity. . Establish and maintain a link to the Divine, each one in their own personal way, be it by meditations, prayer, or contemplation of the glory of existence. Do whatever invigorates you the most. Make life fun, pleasurable, happy, joyful but never depraved. Sensuality is a wonderful gift if used correctly. Use this part of your psyche correctly and to the utmost. "Really, life should be exquisite, fun, pleasurable, enjoyable and glorious. Unhealthy obsessions must be avoided like a plague (religious fanaticism etc). . There are energy vampires, who will drain you of your life energy, leave you exhausted and depressed. Avoid them at all costs where practical. Make your friends are energy invigorators and be one yourself. Again, the key here is ones sense of humour. The mendacious are a pain and do not really make good company but sometimes we can overlook and just laugh at their ridiculous stories. . Of course, life is not always a bed of roses and those dark times will come to us all. Nevertheless, when in the long cold night of darkness of hopelessness and despair, one should always realize that the dawn will always come again and the sun shine warm once again upon ones cheek in the morning of joy. Take it from someone who really knows! . Oh! How important it is to be forgiving. Unforgiveness has no purpose and will fester like a malignant tumour and result in ill health, doing more harm to yourself than to the one you will not forgive. Love each other. However, how does one do this? Love is an action, so do love, even if you don't feel it. Carry it out by actions. Compassion is a wonderful unique human quality, so enhance this within your being to the utmost degree. . Don't allow anyone to take away from you that which you know is true to yourself. Honesty is the best policy and sometimes-absolute truth can hurt. Humanity consists mainly of good people, who are being held ransom by a minute evil 0000.1 few. Some religious fanatics say that humanity is intrinsically evil and destined to hell. However, I simply don't buy into this nonsense. . Wisdom comes with the passing years, but ask children difficult questions and you will be amazed at their insight. Live life like an incandescent light, glowing brightly until you put off this mortal cloak and blink out of existence. In other words, live until your demise. Savour and cherish each glorious moment. Be careful not to say hurtful things to others because once the words have left your lips you can never take them back. . You legacy will become the heritage of those that come after you, and so what you do with your life is not only important to yourself. There is one companion that will be with you every moment of your life and you should love this person as much as you love anything in the whole world. This precious person is none other than you. Use and develop your intuition to a very high degree and it will help you from stumbling on the rocks along the pathways of Life. Have you not been aware when you come into a room and meet a stranger that there is an instant liking or dislike between the two of you? On the other hand, you have felt that a course of action was wrong and the closer you got the more uncomfortable you got with this course of action. These are examples of intuition, listen and adjust to them carefully and you could avoid much pain sorrow and anguish in your life. . The eye is the window to the soul, look into the eyes of a stranger and you will hear your mind saying "beauty, kind, shy, bad, ugly, evil" or remote etc. By just one careful look, one can read much about the character of one you do not know. When alarm bells ring in your mind, please listen to them. . You are truly absolutely 100% unique. There has never been one like you, there is now no one like you, and in all the future eternities, there will never be another just like. Of you fathers half billion sperm cells, only one reached you mother's egg and this was you. No has ever had your unique genetic D.N.A. code or fingerprint. Are you not, therefore, very special and is it so wrong to love and respect the wonderful creation you are? . Go outside or get away from the noise of the city and in the quiet of early morning listen carefully, you will hear the birds chirping like beautiful electrons in the mind of God. Take in the glory of existence all around and feast your eyes on its beauty. You know, of all the countless trillions of snowflakes, leaves, flowers, and no two are identical and each one is a unique creation of the Divine mind of God. Feel the breeze upon your skin, smell the fragrance of the universe bath in the glory and joy of you existence. Be at peace with yourself and all the rest of the universe. You are a child of the universe, so special and wonderful. Develop the dormant senses beyond the five that are not utilized, and you will merge yourself in the wonder of the cosmic mind. . Take your mind into the place of unimaginable beauty and wonder, go on a journey into places you have never been and go further into the cosmic vastness of the beauty of the universe, with the power of imagination. What is the purpose of life? It is to live it to the full, without hurting others or doing the depraved. Charity is wonderful gift to the soul. Question everything with a sense of anticipation and wonder. Love and respect your mortal body, as it is the vehicle that takes on this journey through mortal life on earth. However, know this your consciousness or life energy is eternal and continues on forever, beyond the last curtain of life on this blessed earth. Planet earth is our beloved mother and we must preserve her, love her and cherish her in all her blue glory. She is a blue blazing diamond glowing brightly in the vastness of the universe. Love all gods' creatures. Get all your priorities in order. Spouse, companion, family and children first. A balance in life between ones occupation and home life is essential or the psyche becomes unbalanced and depression and anxiety will take hold of you. Take much time to be with the one you know best, namely, yourself. . Life is a school and if you do not pass a test, you will repeat it repeatedly until you have passed it and only then be able to move on. Life made up of countless choices and each choice could ultimately determine and define ones destiny. Refer back to chapter one! . How we maintain good health, I think by developing a powerful sense of humour, much laughter and exposing one to things we find extremely funny. Then having sufficient exercise combined with a balanced died of fish and a combination of as many brightly coloured fruit and vegetables as one can afford. Genetic proposition unfortunately plays a factor not always under our control. Red meat should be restricted to the rare occasion. Remember, your body is the temple of your soul and if you pollute it with toxic substances, you will suffer the consequences thereof. . What about pollution of the mind? Yes, one must be very careful about what you allow into the gateways of your mind. As a young boy, I was shown terrible photo that horrified me and gave my young mind the idea that sex was an evil perversion. This horrible image of nearly sixty years ago still haunts me and remains implanted in the basement of my mind. Once we have looked at filth, it is with us all the days of our lives, imbedded deep within the brain. . Look, listen, read and enjoy that which is good and healthy to the mind. Guard all the doors or inputs to your mind; you are the one that permits these images or sounds into your brain. What we allow into our minds in of such prime importance that it cannot overstated. . I, however, acknowledge that the complexities and realities of life are much more complex than what I have written in my brief essay and thousands of voluminous unreadable books have been written of this subject. Therefore, the above is my humble attempt by it what it may. . By Alan McDougall . Composed 12/7/2007 . ( Full Answer )

It depends upon the type of monk or nun. The different kinds ('orders') follow different lifestyles and follow different rules depending upon their founder. As an example, St Francis founded the Franciscan monks and Benedict founded the Benedictine monks, and their klifestyles and even their dress d…iffers depending upon their founders' rules. Monks and nuns live a very peaceful, spiritual and wonderful life. However it is still very tough. The main activities are prayer and worship . Monks and nuns perform the most important role of the Christian ; they pray for the world and for those outside the monasteries or convents and devote a large proportion of their lives to worshipping God. A typical day would involve a very early rise from bed (3 - 5 am is not unusual) and throughout the day there are set times for worship. Around these times are sessions for study, meals, manual work in the fields (most convents and monasteries are self-sufficient in food by growing their own and raise funds by selling surplus goods) and around the community, meetings, study (of other subjects as well as the Bible) and some relaxation. In some orders, especially the more 'open' orders, monks and nuns can work in the community especially in caring professions, e.g. by teaching, nursing and so on. The day finishes early - say 9pm ready for the next day. Meals are very basic, with meat not usually eaten every day. The nun's or monk's room is called their 'cell', but is not really like a prison cell. However, it is still very sparsely furnished - a bed, a table and chair, a bookshelf with a Bible, sometimes a prayer stall on which to kneel, and a cross hanging on the wall as a focus to help prayer. On entering a convent or monastery, the novice monk or nun has a trial period before they take their lifetime vows. They must promise poverty (ie not envying those who have a great deal, not being greedy, not desiring loads of material possessions), chastity (not having sex, and being pure in thought, word and deed) and obedience (both to God and to their superiors in the order such as the abbot or Mother Superior). The abbott or Mother Superior are elected offices and change year on year. Monks and nuns have no major possessions of their own (except their clothing and a few small possessions like theior Bibles) - everything they own is used and shared by the community for the benefit of the community in which they live. They are unpaid as they do not need their own funds as everything is found for them from the community. During relaxation times ( just an hour or two a day) they are allowed, depending upon the order, to watch TV, use a computer, play occasional games or read. However, first and foremost worship comes first. Although to the outsider the monastic or convent life seems very strict and difficult, the vast majority of novices stay on after their trial period before they take their final for-life vows. Despite the frugal lifestyle monks and nuns are the most wonderfully happy and content people. Their lifestyle, faith and attitude to God, to each other and to those outside, could teach those of us outside their communities a great deal. ( Full Answer )

Nuns live in monasteries. Sisters live in convents. Nuns usually spend their entire lives in the monastery where they work and pray. Sisters live in a convent but perform most of their work outside the convent - schools, hospitals, etc. Convent when they ARE nuns, abbey when they are STUDYING to b…e nuns. Roman Catholic Answer Actually, nuns, strictly speaking are monastic women in solemn vows. They live in a monastery. A convent can refer to any building or buildings where religious women live; or in past times, friars. Now it would mostly refer to communities of sisters as opposed to nuns. Abbey refers to a canonically erected monastery with a minimum number of religious. Answer Nuns originally lived in convents or monasteries and many continue to do so today.

Certainly NOT, Chistianity is not a way of life. If it was so, then a Christian is to follow the way of life priscribed by the Bible, which unfortunately is not the case. As none of Christians follow the preachings of Bible, nor the Bible covers how to deal with the Social, Adminsrative, Financial m…atters. Secondly if Chirtianity is a way of life then an example is to be set by either Holy Mary or Prophet Jesus. Here again their lives doesnt demostrate the basics of way of life. Thus, it can conclusively be Sid that Chistanity is purely a religon, and not a way of life. me as a born again christian, being a catholic like you is easy to describe your religion in my opinion Christianity is the path of give your self to GOD with all you life,soul&mind GOD will give you wisdom I experience all of these, therefore i will live for GOD always YES. Christianity is BOTH a religion and a way of life. I realize that many, perhaps even most, people do not practice it that way. But for those who truly believe with all their hearts, then Christianity is also a way of life. Things like administrative or financial problems can still be approached in a thoughtful and prayerful way to discern the best ethical way to deal with them. Jesus described himself as the Way. And Christians follow the Way in the living of their lives. So that is a way of life as well as a religion. ( Full Answer )
The basic Answer is: Christ's life . "Let this mind [attitude, frame of mind, understanding] be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." Philippians 2:5. The Apostle Paul makes it clear that it is God's purpose for us to be like Christ in Romans 8:28,29: "And we know that all things work togethe…r for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren." God in omniscience (as all-knowing) knew those who would believe and trust Christ as the one who paid for their sins on the Cross. A true Christian should sense that God is leading him to be more and more like Christ. The Apostle John instructed in 1 John 2:3-6: "And hereby we do know that we know him (Christ Jesus), if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him. He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked." The one who says that he surely knows Christ, is only telling the truth, if he endeavors wholeheartedly to keep the commandments and instructions that Christ gave. If he does this, he has assurance in his heart that he is one of the children of God through Christ. Then the obligation for that Christian is to walk in the same way that Christ did (v.6). This is beyond our natural abilities, so we need to have God's strength to move in that direction. As Paul said, "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13. Not to be thinking that we somehow have arrived in this, Paul says, "Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:12-14. Simply put, we are not to think ht we have obtained perfection, but need to "press on" to be more like Christ, realizing the "prize" or reward of God awaits those Christians who earnestly strive to do right. It is a "high calling" for anyone, only possible to move towards in Christ's strength. ( Full Answer )

Primarily it's a question of "morality" and empirical logic.

There are laws, guidelines and principles for living our lives all through the Bible, covering anything one might encounter in life. The primary one, however, is found at Matthew 6:33, where it tells us to always seek first God's kingdom and his righteousness before we do ANYthing else (Eccl…esiastes 7:12; Luke 12:15-21; John 4:34). Doing things God's way, besides being obedient to our creator(Micah 6:8), will help minimize the major problems in life, eliminating many, allowing the joy of a clean conscience. Just a few of the guidelines in the Bible are: *Show love in all things (1 John 4:8; 1 Corinthians 16:14; Ephesians 5:1-2; 1 Corinthians 13:4;1 Peter 4:8; Romans 13:10) *Treat people the way you'd like to be treated (Matthew 7:12)(Luke 6:31) *Be trustworthy and mean what you say (Matthew 5:37). *Don't lie (Ephesians 4:25; 1 Timothy 1:10; Revelation 21:8; John 8:44, Exodus 20:16) *Don't steal (Ephesians 4:28)(Exodus 20:15+17) *Settle disputes quickly (Ephesians 4:26-27), don't hold grudges *Be kind and freely forgive others (Ephesians 4:29, 31+32) *Be careful who you choose as friends in the first place(1 Corinthians 15:33;Proverbs 13:20; Psalms 11:5; 2 Corinthians 6:15-18) *Obey the laws of the land (1 Peter 2:13-17; Romans 13:1-7)unless they conflict with God's laws(Acts 4:19+20/Acts 5:28+29; John 14:15; Daniel 3:18) *Be a good employee at work to please God (1 Corinthians 10:31; Ephesians 6:5-8) ( Full Answer )
A: In ancient times, before the use of surnames, a man was commonly referred to by his own name, then "son of [his father's name]". Thus we could expect that Nun, the father of "Joshua son of Nun" was a man. A complication of this is that scholars say that there never was a military conquest of… Canaan as described in the Bible and therefore no military leader called Joshua; moreover there is substantial evidence in the Bible itself that Joshua was worshipped by the Hebrews of archaic times as their sun god, so we could look for a god as Joshua's father. The Egyptian primordal god, and ancestor of all the gods, was called Nun. Thus it is possible that the god Nun entered archaic Hebrew belief from Egypt, and that he was neither man nor woman, but a god. ( Full Answer )

The monk William of St Thierry wrote advice for novice monks in his "The Golden Epistle"; he said: "So whether you eat, drink or do anything else, do everything in the name of the Lord, devoutly and religiously". This passage sets the tone for all monastic life across Europe throughout the medieval …era. The Cistercian monk Matthew of Rievaulx wrote: "Flee from the midst of depravity and perversity, from danger to security, from work to quietude, from shadow to light, from the corruption of the flesh to delight in the spirit". This sets out the idea that the outside world was seen as corrupt, sinful and dangerous, while life inside a monastery was safe from the snares of evil. The regime was extremely strict and far from comfortable. Ailred of Rievaulx wrote in 1135: "Our food is scanty, our garments rough; our drink is from the stream and our sleep upon our book. Under our tired limbs there is a hard mat; when sleep is sweetest we must rise at the bidding of a bell . . . self-will has no scope; there is no moment for idleness or dissipation. Everywhere is peace, everywhere serenity and a marvellous freedom from the tumult of the world, such unity and concord is there among the brethren that each thing seems to belong to all, and all to each . . . To put all in brief, no perfection expressed in the words of the gospel or of the Apostles, or in the writings of the Church Fathers, or in the sayings of the monks of old, is wanting in our Order and our way of life." Lack of sleep, a boring diet and the strict daily routine was not to everyone's taste, but there were always more applicants to enter monasteries than places available. ( Full Answer )
'sor....' + the nun's name, e.g. 'sor Maria' = 'sister Mary' 'Sor' is pronounced closer to 'sorr' in 'sorrow' than to 'sore'
One View: The wrong way would be: 'to follow your heart' & 'to follow your flesh'. The Bible occasionally refers to the 'heart' in a figurative way; as if it had a mind of its own. The Bible states that our 'heart' can be a deceptive little thing. It may wish to please God, and do what is rig…ht; but it works in conjunction with 'the flesh'. The 'flesh' may desire something which Jehovah God has determined is wrong. The 'mind/brain' knows right from wrong, by having read the Bible. So the 'flesh' -- needs 'the heart' to force 'the mind' to work for the flesh; to find a loophole; to figure out something that makes allowance for the wrongdoing.
