There were days when it took a whole room for a computer to work properly. Then there were the days when after-dinner radio program were so popular that it was almost a family tradition to listen to these radio plays, comedy and horror shows after dinner. And there were the days when a teenager’s biggest joy was to buy his favorite singer’s audio cassette or vinyl record with his own and hard earned pay. But we will discuss the rather recent history of how technology has evolved and changed in these past few years.

As mentioned earlier, people used to buy audio cassettes, vinyl records and CDs of their favorite artists. In those days the success of an album was measured and based on its total units sold. And according to the sales of these cassettes and records, albums were classified as Gold or Platinum record. Then came the era of Walkman’s and portable radios and it was a new thing in those days.

People were happy that they can have all their favorite music in form of a cassette and radio in their pockets. This Walkman’s were soon replaced by smartphones and iPods. The main specialty of these iPods and smartphones was that they could play video along with the audio, took a rather small place in the pocket of young boys and girls and also they didn’t want to carry two devices in their pocket at the same time so they preferred iPods over Walkman’s and portable radios.

Same is the case in video playing department, a couple of decades ago, VHS cassettes and VCR players were all the hype and renting the cassette of a new movie was rather difficult and people had to wait before another customer returns the cassette so they can borrow it. Then CDs and DVDs were introduced so the sale of CD/VCD/DVD players saw a new rise. These days, Blu-ray and HD players are famous.

Blu-ray offers and exquisite quality of videos and the case of removable storage isn’t much different. In old days, zip drives, floppy drives and cassettes were used to make back-ups of different files, then the USB flash drives that become instantly popular and are still more popular today but today is the era of cloud computing and online backups.

You forgot to put your important files, for example a presentation that you’ve been working on these past few days. Not to worry, when you’re about to start your presentation, just open the file you saved earlier on a cloud server and continue with your presentation.

Personal digital assistants and pocket calculators and computers were also popular in olden days and people found them very useful, but with the advent of smartphones vshare apps, the PDAs and calculators have almost become obsolete. There is an app available for almost your every thought and problem these days. Smartphones and tablet computers have certainly made our lives easier.

History of Catholic Church

11 Mar 2016 Uncategorized No Comments

As the gospel was spread by the apostles of Jesus Christ, they laid the starting structure for the early Christian Church. To separate the first stages of the Roman Catholic Church from that early Christian church is not possible.

After the death of Jesus, Simon Peter turned out to be a great leader in the movement of Jewish Christian. Simon is one of disciples of Jesus. Later on James, who is most probably the brother of Jesus, took the charge of leadership. These Christ followers observed themselves as a change movement in Judaism however they sustained to follow a large number of the Jewish laws.

Meanwhile Saul, initially among the robust oppressors of the early Jewish Christians, got Jesus Christ’s blinding vision on his way to Damascus, and embraced Christianity. He adopted the Christian name Paul and became the utmost pastor of the early Christian church. The Paul’s ministry, also termed as Pauline Christianity, was focused chiefly to Gentiles rather than Jews. In indirect ways, the early church was started to become divided already.

At this time, another belief system prevailing was Gnostic Christianity, which preached that Jesus was a spirit being. He was sent by God in order to communicate knowledge to human beings so that they could evade the distresses of life on earth. Besides the Gnostic, Pauline and Jewish Christianity, many other versions of Christianity were already being taught at that time. In 70 AD after the Jerusalem’s fall, the movement of Jewish Christian was dispersed. It left only the Gnostic and Pauline Christianity as the dominant groups.

In 313 AD, Pauline Christianity was legally recognized by The Roman Empire as a valid religion. Later on in 380 AD, Roman Empire chose Roman Catholicism as the official religion of the entire empire. In the next 1000 years, there were the Catholics only who were recognized as Christians. A formal split occurred in 1054 AD, between the Eastern Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches. This separation remains effective till the present day. In the 16th century, the next key division happened with the Protestant Reformation.

Those who continued to be loyal to Roman Catholicism were of the view that the central rule of policy by church leaders was essential in order to avoid division and confusion within the church and exploitation of its beliefs.

While many claim Apostle Peter as the 1st Pope, but according to some historians the title goes to the Roman Bishop Leo I (440-461). Leo was the 1st to entitle the final power over all of Christendom. Similarly, non-Catholics usually come to an agreement that as an institution, the Roman Catholic Church started in AD 590, when Gregory I was chosen as bishop of Rome.
