Question:

Why is it better to write in the active tense for formal papers?

Inactive
Anamarie G.
Answer:

In formal papers, the writer should always strive to be as clear as possible. With sentences in the passive tense, the subject is ambiguous, even if the writer refers to who the subject may be in surrounding sentences. For example, if I am writing a paper in which I am comparing Catholic theology to that of Martin Luther's and I write, "Several changes to Catholic theology were proposed," as a sentence, it is unclear as to whom I am referring. Am I saying that Catholics proposed these changes, or Martin Luther? A better, clearer sentence would be: "Martin Luther proposed several changes to Catholic theology." This sentence is in the active voice, and as such, the subject is explicit.

Question:

Explain Catholic baptismal theology. What occurs in the sacrament of Baptism in Catholicism?

Inactive

Answer:

According to Catholicism, the form and matter are required for the administration of Baptism. What is meant by the form are the words "I baptize thee in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen." By the matter it is meant the water, which is to be sprinkled or poured three times on the head of the recipient, or the head of the recipient is to be immersed in water three times. The ordinary minister of Baptism is a bishop, priest, or deacon, but in case of an emergency, anyone may baptize. According to Catholic theology, in Baptism there are three components: that which is just the sacrament (the outward sign, which is matter and form), that which is signified by the sacrament, and that which is truly occurring within the recipient's soul at Baptism. The first, as stated, is the outward sign, the words and the water. The second is a character, which is signified by the outward sign but is truly in the soul of the recipient. This spiritual character is indelible--everlasting. It marks the soul as one who is a baptized child of God. The third component is the soul's receiving justification by God's grace of Baptism and no longer being in the state of Original Sin.

Question:

As expressed in Plato's Republic, what is his idea of what is really real/truly being?

Inactive

Answer:

Plato believes that true being, that which is really real, are ideas, or forms. These forms are really real because they are immutable--they cannot be changed. This is unlike matter, which for Plato is not really real, but only reflects that which is really real. For example, a particular table is not really real because it can be destroyed. I could burn it, and then it would be gone. Contrastingly, the idea of a table cannot be destroyed. It is not subject to time and space--it exists in the intellect of a person. As such, that form of "tableness" is what is really real, since it is not subject to destruction. Hence, in this example, "tableness" would be that which is truly being, whereas the particular, physical table is only a reflection--or a manifestation--of that which is being (the form).
