In Beowulf, it says “their ears could not hear his praise nor know his glory,” this is a connection to God in this epic, but in modern society, people with anxiety don’t hear praise they receive from others because they don’t believe it (lines 97-98). Grendel can’t help who his ancestors are, but he can help himself instead of living down to their expectations. In The Monster Called Anxiety, it says “The inside of my head is a loud place. Something is constantly bouncing around. I think about things I said or did years ago, about how ‘stupid’ I was,/ Anxiety makes me a difficult person to be friends with” (Ann).
John was also determined to enter the Place of the Gods, furthermore a result of his determination, he had successfully reached the Place of the Gods. John was also shown to be a static character, meaning he didn’t legitimately change by the end of the story. Afterward is John’s father, the priest. John’s father is shown to be a splendid father, due to the fact that he has made his son into a priest, giving him independence, he has also warned him about the dangers that will await him in the Forbidden p 2.) Throughout reading this story, I’ve come up with the theme of technology might not be as great as everyone think it is.
Okonkwo’s worst fear was to be the kind of man his father was, so he tried his best not to let his fear become a reality. With a father like Unoka, Okonkwo didn’t get the start as most young men in the village; however, he worked his way to the position of leadership of the clan. There was only one emotion that Okonkwo showed, and it was anger. This was his only emotion because it was how he expressed his feelings. Okonkwo had to leave his fatherland, but after returning home, he found his home unrecognizable.
An article written Christopher Craig by called “’Nobody’s a bum all their life’: Teaching the Class Through William Kennedy’s Ironweed” suggests that “Francis does not make his personal decisions in a moral vacuum. Capitalist interest set the terms and conditions for these choices” (32). Disagreeably, I think his decisions are completely made in such “moral vacuum”, because of the religious family he was in when he was growing up. Doing “the right thing” and Catholicism go hand in hand. Francis follows this pattern, thinking that because he’d done something wrong (leaving his family), he does not deserve to go back home.

Antonio always had his mind set on his one destiny of becoming a priest but this belief system is second guessed when he helps Ultima cure his uncle Lucas from a deathly sickness when the priest couldn 't. Many times in the novel, supernatural or paganistic objects help more than the God above. For example, when Narciso dies, God does not help him live, he let 's the evil Tenorio live instead. Antonio, confused with what religion to pick turns to paganism and the natural belief system.
For example, Reverend Hale, after questioning John Proctor about why his last born son isn't baptized, he gets,"I see no light of God in the man"(1242) as a comment. Hale response seriously with, "The man's ordained, therefore, the light of God is in him." (1242) Hale was new, so he didn't understand that the preacher John was talking about, Parrish, was a greedy,prideful, and selfish man, though the audience and John knew.Outward appearances in people may be extremely contrasted to the inward truth of the person...someone could be smiling and laughing, but inward could be miserable. The abundant examples of irony in Arthur Miller's play The Crucible hints that appearances can often be deceiving from reality. Verbal irony has created confusion and suspicion because people say things, when they mean an entirely different definition.
I have a hard enough time remembering the Ten Commandments yet alone the 613 laws required to be holy before God. This law is physically impossible to follow to the dot just because God is perfect and cannot sin. Therefor His people should be without sin in order to honor Him. Sadly though in Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” By this we know that no one has been able fulfill the
Peter was blinded by his own self-importance when he finds it is difficult to believe in Lucy even though he knows well that she never lies.

Peter is a child who is forced to fight alone, with a weapon he never used before, against an experienced and deadly opponent. Peter has not enough bravery to lead the army to fight against White Witch when Aslan sacrificed his self on the stone table. Edmund supported him to be the leader, so his bravery increase and could lead the army.
