The Colosseum

The Colosseum, originally known as the Flavian Amphitheater, is a huge elliptical structure that was commissioned by Emperor Vespasian in 72 AD. It is located in Rome, Italy, and is slightly east of the Roman Forum. This tremendous four-story structure has 80 entrances and was able to accommodate 55,000 spectators to witness things such as gladiatorial contests, executions, comical acts and heroic feats with animals. Although this immense structure has fallen into ruins, it is still one of the most picturesque and commanding sites in Rome.

The upper part of the southern side of the Colosseum collapsed in an earthquake in 1349 because the soil under that side is less stable.

How would you start your own Christian church?

I would find a building - any building - somewhere people need help like Jesus did with the prostitutes and the sick and come just as we are. Make a rule that no suits and falseness allowed; if you are a dirty drunk come as a dirty drunk, if you're poor and have no clothes come wearing exactly what you have. By doing this we are now accepting people for who they are, not what we think they are. Now we can build relationships and start dealing with issues. That's a start for building a church. We just need the church to come for who they are, for we are the church. Find an area that people pass by regularly. Keep the church "up-beat" by using guitars, drums, and keyboards. Praying, offering, love, and happy feelings. Make it your own. Start small with one idea and expand. Answer questions about how your church differs from others, what beliefs are associated with the church, and what actions members will be expected to take. You can promote your church online at www.IsGodReliigous.com. Why do people actually start by saying find a building? First of all, the Church is the Body of Christ. If you are called to be a leader in the Body of Christ then you need to be discipled and mentored under a ministry that you can trust. Do not ever take it upon yourself to "start a church" because that is just religion and is not Christ's way. Until you are called by God, appointed by God and anointed by God you have no business starting anything. If you are and you know you have a calling on your life then start in your home or go around your neighborhood sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ first. If you cannot sway your neighbors to receive Christ and learn to disciple those around you, you will not be a good pastor. Finding a building is man's way of building a religious institution and has nothing to do with Jesus Christ, His ministry, His teaching and His church. * They met in people's houses - not a building * They looked outwards rather than inwards - to evangelise and to help those less fortunate * The leaders were appointed y the church democratically - and given the opportunity to study scripture, prayer and spirituality, so that their leadership was effective (and not the 'blind leading the blind' - as this is how heresies begin. The best thing is to read Acts and some of Paul's letters to get an feel of how churches began. ------------------------------------------------ The above answer may be relevant IF you are planning to start a Christian church. Many members and potential members of the Christian faith tend to adhere to some pretty strict guidlines. If you are not familiar with them, you will want to do your research. The non-religious, logical answer to your question is: First you will want to match your religion or service with the community. A church body will thrive only if the people feel rewarded by whatever service or guidance they are receiving from your organization. Next, you will need to find a way to fund your organization. Building a chappel costs money and buying an existing building costs money; where are you going to get that money? Unless you are wealthy, you will need the support of potential financial backers who feel that your new religious organization has something good to offer the community. Without financial backing, your beggingins will be meager, to say the least. Some networking may the key. If your organization is part of a larger, well established sect or denomination, you may be able to start by speaking to the leaders of some existing churches. If you are starting a new religion, you really have your work cut out for you. Be careful that you don't become accused of starting a cult. The line between a "cult" and a legitimate religion can be shaky, depending on who's defining it. Know your area and whether your religion will be tolerated or even met with violence. Another thing to remember is that you must be well-trained in your profession. If you are starting a church, people will be coming to you for guidance and leadership. Any misstep in this can lead to embarrasment or unforseen difficulties. Even if you will not be the speaker/teacher/preacher, you will still probably looked to for guidance--even if you are merely the investor or co-founder.

Why was the Colosseum built?

People of Rome were hungry for a bigger and bolderspectacles.

The Colosseum would give the gladiators apermanentstate of killing field.

And the games will take on a level of carnage, never before seen in Empire history.



The Colosseum was built by the Flavians. It is also called the Roman Colisseum or the Flavian Amphitheatre. In fact, the amphitheatre was its original name. It was built primarily to honor the Flavian dynasty of three Roman emperors. It was a question of a father who was succeeded by his two sons. Each one of the three left their mark on their honorary structure.

The amphitheatre was expected to honor its imperial builders and to entertain the people of ancient Rome. But the entertainment that was held in the amphitheatre tended to be far from light entertainment. In fact, the entertainment activities may have left more than 500,000 people and 1 million animals dead. Entertainment indeed included animal hunts, executions, gladiatorial contests, mock sea battles, public spectacles, and re-enactments of dramas from classical mythology and famous battles.

The names 'Coliseum' and Colosseum' mistakenly were applied to the amphitheatre. Originally, there was a nearby colossal statue of Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus [December 15, 37 - June 9, 1968]. It was called the 'coliseus'. Ultimately, it fell to pieces. But the term remained, to be applied to the amphitheater.
The Colosseum and other buildings were built to memorialize the Flavian dynasty.

Is a Yu-Gi-Oh deck good that contains one blue eyes white dragon three gearfried the iron knight three Gemini twins and others?

It is pretty good. I have the Pyramid of Light including all three god cards + the three guardian dragons +All three blue eyes + Dark hole including many other good cards.I also have the limited collections set of Magicians. You cant get that anywhere now. I have all toon monsters and I have every single original deck for every character that's in the cartoons. Including Maayz.

Answer: your deck would be good if you have support monsters and spells for it. since Blue Eyes is a LV8 monster it's really costly to summon it normally so you have to get around that using spell cards. Also try replacing your Gemini twins with some monster that has the same attack but with a very good effect to help your deck survive while waiting for your trump cards. depending on wat the othr 1ns r
