After a few years of being in the first stage I was in the dogmatic faith stage. In this stage, I was applying myself ceaselessly to earning the love and approval of the Supreme Being (Gold, 2010). I thought I was doing the work of the lord and that if I did that I would be an important person for it. I never wanted to do the wrong thing and even was very over worried about my sexual behaviors or openness to start doing things in that realm as a high school student. At the same time, I think that church was a good and stable place for me to be at that time regardless, but looking back it seems to be a pretty foolish way of thinking that it was the only way to do right in the world.
John Proctor the Wrongly Accused In The Crucible there are many people condemned and hanged for witchcraft, one of these, John Proctor, I believe to be innocent. A man with as much integrity and honesty as John Proctor, could never perform the act of witchcraft. Undoubtedly he wasn’t a perfect man but no one ever is. As we are proved time and time again, John is an honest, hardworking man; who is haunted by his past misdeeds.
In Genesis 12, Abraham had a hard life and God had asked him to leave his home in return for land, decedents and a relationship with Him. Additionally, Abraham and his wife Sarah were too old and had no one to succeed the family, but he continued to press on in the name of God. When Abraham finally reached the promised land, his wife gave birth to Isaac as God promised. One day, Abraham’s life suddenly took a change as God said “Take your son, your only son, whom you love—Isaac—and go to the region of Moriah. Sacrifice him there as a burnt offering on a mountain I will show you” (Genesis 22:2 NIV).

What happened immediately after that is hazy in my mind. All I remember is that I passed out and woke up in something that looked like a hospital bed. I spent what seemed like weeks recovering from my first teleportation. When I fully recovered, I learned more about my new surroundings. Asrago was an amazing place.

Once she did find a husband, it was probably a bad one that made her even more upset and led to her attitude during the story.

Because in his great might, He had created Auschwitz, Birkenau, Buna, and so many other factories of death…” (Wiesel, 67). Elie acknowledges that he no longer wants to believe in God because he concluded that God is the reason that the Jews are in the circumstance they are in. This is another reason individuals might think Elie is showing lack of spiritual stamina during the Holocaust because Elie begins to consider why he should believe in God when He has created such terrible things throughout the world. On the other hand, Wiesel explains, “And in spite of myself, a prayer formed inside me, a prayer to this God in
Despite John being considerate, caring and feeling sorry for his wife’s illness, he dominates over her both physically and psychologically (AndrewM). He incarcerates her due to his pervasive torment. For instance, the narrator is coerced to stay in the nursery regardless of her will. The prison’s windows are barred while the wallpaper torturing her, but she cannot voice her choking experience and whenever, she tries the husband reproaches her (AndrewM). Despite her preference for the house downstairs, her husband demands her to stay in the nursery, and all her views are shuttered.
