Why was God angry? Was He making a point? 8 “And it came to pass, when the sun did arise, that God prepared a vehement east wind; and the sun beat upon the head of Jonah, that he fainted, and wished in himself to die, and said, It is better for me to die than to live.” Observation: When the sun comes up in the east, the air currents do appear to travel westward. The word “vehement” is anger sounding. Without the booth and the plant, Jonah had nothing to protect him from the strong winds and all they blew towards him.
Equality’s assessment of his sin is correct because at the end of Anthem, Equality now sees his so called curse as a gift and plans to show the society how it is a great thing to be different. “We were born with a curse.”(18) Equality is gifted with knowledge and curiosity but through his life, people have taught him that he had a curse because he wasn’t
Elie was the same way, but by the end of his experiences in the concentration camps he had come to resent God and the fact that God would let something so terrible to happen to him, his family, and the others around him. After reading what happened to him, I believe that I too would have disowned God and my beliefs. How could such a loving and caring God let something the horrible happen to his chosen people. Personally, I believe that everyone is born with morals programed into their very being not to mutilate and destroy God’s greatest creation, so reading about all that happened in the concentration camps shocked me. How did the SS officers not hang themselfs at night after a long days work of killing and making so many lives a living hell, after working poor elderly men to their grave.
It also says, people have the right to take direct action, because African Americans are getting tired of waiting. He was speaking out toward the clergy, by telling them he was doing nothing wrong wanting social justice. Although some may think differently, pathos and kairos are the most effective devices in “The Letter from Birmingham Jail,” because pathos triggers feelings of shame and guilt, and kairos adds a state of urgency. Pathos is used frequently in the excerpt to evoke shame and guilt in the white clergy. The clergy believes King’s present activities are “unwise and untimely.” He feels the men of the clergy, “are men of genuine good will and” their “criticisms are sincerely set forth.” However, the clergy did not understand the effects of racism on black people.
This means he cares for his friends and is truly a good man. Proctor says; “ let them that near dead now take their souls, it is pretence to me.” Proctor talks good about the people who decided not to confess. He Doesn't want to say anything that will harm them. Proctor doesn't think he’s doing the right thing by confessing and wants to change his mind to do the right thing. John proctor
In the memoir Night, the narrator Elie Wiesel recounts a moment when he questioned God, ¨Blessed be God’s name? Why, but why would I bless him? Every fiber in me rebelled, he caused thousands of children to burn his Mass graves?¨(Wiesel 68). Overall, Wiesel does not follow the words of God and is not believing in him anymore because he thinks God is the one thatś letting all the inhumanity occur. One theme in Night is that inhumanity can cause disbelief or incredulity.
The narrator is a representation of society. He is civilians that will not wait for the less fortunate or challenged individuals. He is people who do not want to deal with realities because they are inconvenient. He eventually realizes Doodle is not a hurdle in his life but his brother to be embrace. He puts effort into teaching Doodle to walk and swim, but even then he is cruel to his brother.
Elizabeth optically discerns his inner goodness shine when he relucts to prevaricate, and she realizes how inequitable she has been. Proctor preserves the lives of the others who are inculpated when he unselfishly declines to preserve his own. He acts as a martyr when he places others afore himself. He would rather die an honorable death than live a dishonorable life. In conclusion John Proctor endeavors to visually perceive the good in adultery to endeavor fortify his espousement & he takes full responsibility of his sins and does not opt to encumber his sin on his wife and his unborn child.
The insights I gain from the book is that God loves us more than anyone and we should love him only in return. Question 4: “Suffering is the consequences of our sins”. Humans disobey God and if God does not do anything about it because of our nature we will keep doing it. God has created with free will therefore we choose to disobey him, which means unconsciously we
This man is killing his neighbors for their land!” (96). An individual living in that kind of Christian community would not bear false witness against his/her neighbor, but Putnam takes advantage of the widespread panic to benefit himself. The loss of morality is seen in the McCarthy Era in that McCarthy indirectly harmed and destroyed the lives of others with his assumptions and caused a serious threat to the
