Evil is relative. As humans, we are not strictly good or evil. A response should not define a person, especially when society has the final say on whether a person is “good” or “bad”. People resort to evil to describe something they cannot rationalize. There is no reason for it, so many people turn to God, saying that evil was a form of punishment for sin.
What deists mean is that a man can be evil and he is still right. It also seems to mean that It does not matter whether or not a person is sinful, he can still go to Heaven. Catholics believe that evil is not only not right, it destroys who a person was meant to be. Catholics also believe that God is a just God, therefore, those who are evil will be punished and the good will be rewarded. The Catechism of the Catholic Church states that, “The New Testament speaks of judgment primarily in its aspect of the final encounter with Christ in his second coming, but also repeatedly affirms that each will be rewarded immediately after death in accordance with his works and
He argued that sin has been passed down from the start when Adam and Eve first ate from the tree of knowledge. Pelagius’ idea was that humans could receive salvation when they earned it and chose to just stop sinning. Augustine thought differently in the fact that all physical things are evil, and that all spiritual things are good. He disagreed by stating that immorality is a matter of will and that it resulted from Adam and Eve
No matter what your thoughts, feelings, or relious beliefs are Edwards feels that God is mad with everyone and we are going to hell. As stated in the text” They are already under a Sentence of Condemn to Hell. They don’t only justly deserve to be cast down thither; but the Sentence of the Law of God, that eternal and immutable Rule of Righteousness that God has fixed between him and Man-kind, is gone out against them, and stands against them; so that they are bound over already to Hell.” In a way I understand what Edward is saying. We are born into sin but god gives us the choice to show him if we want to go to heaven or hell. We know what’s wrong or right good or bad.
He describes Gods anger towards those who do not follow and believe in Him. It is explained that God is the only one who is able to save people from going to Hell. Edwards wants people to imagine how evil and distressed life would be without Gods love and mercy. He explains that to not burn in Hell people need to ask for forgiveness from God, experience Gods mercy, and continuously practice the Lords word. Edwards really lets the message of “Gods wrath” sink into our minds to show how mighty, powerful, and capable the Lord is.
The characters in the ritual are people Goodman Brown thought would never be there because they were so close to God. Seeing the people he has believed to be good leads him to plunge into greater depths of temptation. The guide is also an important character in the story because he symbolizes the Devil. The
“By this way no good spirit ever passes” (“Commedia: Inferno”). It is also very important to understand that the sins themselves are not the reason they are condemned to Hell. The reason they are condemned to Hell is due to their failure to repent and ask for forgiveness of these sins. “In Dante’s faith, a soul can only be saved by turning to God for forgiveness” (“Commedia: Inferno”). Someone
It’s no secret that everyone is created as imperfect human beings because ultimately, that is the cause of our messy lives. Since we are flawed human beings, were more susceptible to stray away from God and his plan for each and every one of us. As a result, we desperately need God’s love and mercy to steer us back on the path he has already paved for us. We all let emotions take the best of us weather that’s anger, frustration, or even regrets, but the key is to trust in God and let him take take full control of your life because you will uncover the greatest gift of his divine eternal grace.

Replacing the concept of morals with self-interest, there is an override to the correct mentality for ‘nothing is actually wrong and there is nothing that can me.’ This can be correlated to the Book of Mormon’s concept of the morally unjust of ‘Eat, drink and be merry.’ Where the moral truths have degraded to justifying sin, assuming all that will willingly stamper with God-given verities will void themselves of standards for the kingdom of God. According to the LDS views on sin, as read in 2 Nephi 28:21-23, where Satan will pacify, and lull away those who could listen into a carnal security, where the devil cheats their souls, leading them away carefully down to hell. Others, he flatters away, telling them there is not a hell or a devil, “until he grasps them with his awful chains, from whence there is no deliverance...They are grasped with death, and hell and the devil, and all that have been seized therewith must stand before the throne of God, and be judged according to their works, from whence they must go into the place prepared for them, even a lake of fire and brimstone, which is endless
To some he can be described as a Hero Archetype and to others a Rebel Archetype. From reading my paper you can tell that I think he is both archetypes. I can relate to Proctor in some ways because in the end Proctor became truthful and confessed to everything that he had done. Although he had confessed to the truth people tried to shun him and make him feel even worse for what he did. Instead of Proctor getting his name on the church doors he wanted to die to save his good name.
People are devilish and they should be rebuked and the devils cast from the souls of hell. Religion has been stated to provide inspiration, and is the force that bind individuals together. However, organized faith has its disadvantages. So keep an open mind when dealing with religion. Some do not believe there is a God, or that God cease to exist.
