He also implies that he was not made by God when he says, “I remembered Adam’s supplication to his Creator. But where was mine?” (112). The monster is trying to point out that if God was his creator he would have known God. Experiencing reason, pain, anger, growth, and being made by God are just some of the qualities of being human. Even though the monster experiences the human qualities of reason, pain, and anger, he lacks the most important human qualities: growth, and being made by
Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is. The Lord gives us many opportunities to rely on Him and when we need his love and mercy the most. People ignore that and believe they can be their own gods. This is not right because Jesus says in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the father except through me.” Meaning that the only way to not end up in Hell is to except Jesus Christ into your heart.
He wanted to explore more. He wanted to dig deep. He had a strong yearning for Forbidden Knowledge after his father has warned him not to. Early in the story, Frankenstein exclaims, “So much has been done, more, far more, will I achieve; treading in the steps already marked, I will pioneer a new way, explore unknown powers, and unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation” (Shelley). Frankenstein wanting to “unfold to the world the deepest mysteries of creation” shows that he wants to be like God, for God is the only One who can create life.
The Book of Job provides an example of how people should praise God by illustrating a blameless, responsible, and fearing man who will always turn away from evil. Therefore, this book presents the same man tortured by outside forces lacking the possibility to acquire help from family and friends. Throughout the reading in particular (14:11) demonstrates how there was a moment of weakness in which Job fails and ask for his death, but after all, he did not commit sin and endured waiting for his torment to banish. In addition, the book reveals how men turned against a man in need and instead judged him without understanding the sources causing his disgrace. However, the book provides a comparison in how humans behave by providing vivid examples of characters who showed behaviors illustrating how humanity functions.
His only goal was to be kind and helpful. Tom, misjudged and misunderstood because of nothing he did which later lead to his death.

I watched my father die alone and friendless at his end, begging for forgiveness for all his transgressions. His children where the only ones to forgive him. Discipline in all things we do is the difference between trying and success. While I will not say I am perfectly disciplined in all aspects of my life, I do understand that if I want to achieve something discipline it the formula. Finally wisdom, the older I get the more I ask for wisdom to guide my thoughts and to give proper advice to my family and those around me.
Instead being very real, and the cost of such self-interested actions are more than a few stripes and a quick forgiveness, instead an eternal damnable concept to be paid for. The truths uncovered by Dante matches with the way that the Christian world viewed how the world really functioned according to their theology at the time. Their perception of truths regarding the afterlife do not alter according to the various cultures or circumstances of those whom do not fall under the typical pattern of Christianity, this is made evident from those whom are sent to the eternal Limbo consisting of the unbaptized children and virtuous pagans whom never knew God. They do not have the opportunity to pass from their hellish state to worship the God they might have known if conditions had given it. The Dante definition of moral truths are not subjective, instead they are held as moral absolutes, a definite ethical right and wrong.
“I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” -Albert Einstein. This quote is very relevant to the book Frankenstein because Victor Frankenstein, though he is a very intelligent scientist, has a passion to explain how life is created. The problem is that his dedication towards his passion clouded his ability to differentiate passion from responsibility. Passion can be a very strong emotion that blurs lines of what is wanted and what is needed.

The scientist Victor Frankenstein calls his creation a “wretch” and assumes that it is evil solely based on it's appearance.
Lucius had no hope left when his life was nothing but troubles. He had to accept faith into his life and cleanse himself of his past sins. In the end, Lucius was able to find salvation through faith, transform back into human form and spread the word of faith through the miracles that he had experienced. The next theme I found was that God is the God of both grace and judgment. He is always forgiving, but he has the power to show that all actions are not accepted.
