In the scene where Nick is sleeping on the stairs, light is used to emphasise on the sorrow on his face. Minimal light is used on Gatsby’s coffin; there is natural light from the windows and the very dim chandelier. The room is dark and gloomy, bringing a sense of sadness to the scene Colour Romeo is wearing colourful clothing to show that he was a person of free nature. The crosses in the church are white with blue neon outlines as if pointing towards a direction, in this case they are pointing toward Juliet, they have red crosses in the middle to symbolise love. In Great Gatsby, there’s blue lights coming from windows, the blue colour is associated with sadness, it creates a gloomy atmosphere.
But how many of us struggle with it and don’t realize it? Sometimes, we go through the bible or we attend service, and pick and choose what exactly we desire. If the apostle Paul wasn’t afraid to proclaim the “whole counsel of God...”(Acts 20:27), then does that mean we are only expected to observe some of it and some of the time? Peter in 2 Peter 1:3 informs us as Christians we have been given by God “All things pertaining to life and godliness.” There’s nothing that God has instructed his Body, his bride, the Church, that is okay to not apply to your life.
The Station Wagon The Station Wagon is really a disguised alien being. The station wagon itself is non-descript and is an indeterminable make. The wagon was white, however it is covered in mud both inside and out, even though it has not rained in New England for over a week. When Doug pulled up behind it he realized that the car had no license plates.
The father looks very frail and it looks as he may not be eating or eating less, in order to feed his family more. The windows are dirty and dusty and haven’t been cleaned in a very long time. The wood floors are unkept and have many stains, the bed sheets look ratty, torn and grimy. The picture of Bud Fields and
Like George, most people in society spend their whole lives chasing material wealth, and never slow down to appreciate the priceless spiritual wealth they have built up through friends and family. George is taught by society that success is measured by material wealth. He watches others from the town leave and become rich, while he is stuck in
In the 1600s many emigrants from England came to settle in North America. Most of the English at the time were Christian, and one of the several reasons to explore was to spread the word of God. Most of the documents mention how the new colonists must serve their God and keep themselves holy and to not indulge in temptations that would stray them from their original goals. However, by the 1700s the distinct group that settled in the New England region was split into two groups. The split of the two groups came from gold diggers, the temptation of gold overweight their original goal, thus causing the group to split into two groups, the Christians and the Gold Diggers.
During the premodern period in Europe, it was largely accepted that the Catholic Church had ultimate authority. At that time, there was no real division between church and state. Instead, all matters were heavily intertwined. However, Martin Luther, John Calvin, Nicolaus Copernicus, Galileo Galilei, Francis Bacon, and Rene Descartes questioned the authority of the church and lead many people to consider that the church might not be the only authoritative figure to rely on. These men presented ideas that characterized a shift in authority that also is known as the shift from the premodern period to modernity.
A salesman has got to dream, boy. It comes with the territory” (p. 111). Charley’s generous advice and money ignites jealousy in Willy, as he always measures himself against this successful man. Certainly, Charley frustrates Willy to no end, conjuring a display of pride that one can easily see every time Willy rejects help, and the dejection that
“Yet he was rather close as to expenses And kept the gold he won in pestilences. Gold stimulates the heart, or so we’re told. He therefore had a special love of gold.” Additionally, Chaucer criticized the behavior of another character, the Friar.
When Dick first learns of the Clutter family, he attains knowledge of their wealth. Truman writes, “Why should that ‘big shot bastard’ have all the luck? With a knife in his hand, he, Dick, had power. Big- shot bastards like that had better be careful or he might “open them up and let a little of their luck spill on the floor” (Capote 201). Though Mr. Clutter rightfully earns all of his money, Dick labels Clutter’s wealth as luck.
Precisely, she declared, “The church cannot be defiled by receiving a bigamist into its membership” (Oskison 1040). As a result, from Miss Evans’ behavior, Oskison is able to disseminate America’s true character. Unlike others, he does not excuse or ignore America’s image, instead he confronts
When questioned about who will get into heaven, most Christians provide a simple answer. This answer usually is along the lines of “only those who are Christians,” or “those who have accepted Christ into their hearts as their Lord and Savior.” Now there is nothing wrong with these thoughts, as I believed these to be the case for a long, long time. More recently, however, I’ve begun to take on a different though process which is more along the lines of that which is seen in C.S. Lewis’s
Excluding the Quakers, none said a word against it. Indeed, many evangelists owned slaves. Instead of promoting emancipation in the current life, they promised equality to the slaves in the afterlife, so long as they would adopt Christianity. So too did Preachers make a renewed effort to preach to Native Americans, the first in many decades. Unreceptive to the regimented orthodox methods of preaching, a series of northern tribes “suddenly warmed to the new… mode of preaching” (359).
