The Misfit is certain that he does not follow Jesus Christ and his morals while the grandmother is uncertain of her morals. She transitions from believing in Jesus’s beliefs to denying them, finally concluding that he didn’t raise the dead. At the end of the story, The Misfit indirectly references her lack of morals. “‘She would have been a good woman’ The Misfit said, if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life (O’Connor 245).” He believes that the grandmother longs to have morals. Nevertheless, she does not realize her lack of personal intersection until meeting The Misfit.
No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ” (Ephesians 4:31-32). Reverend Brown was a very religious man who takes his job too seriously and extreme. Verses like Ephesians 4: 31-32, which insist that people be more forgiving, were not emphasised when the Reverend was preaching to the town. The townsfolk were very religious, so the Reverend easily persuaded them to believe that Drummond was an evil man, without any real knowledge about Drummond.
He is generous, obedient, responsible, and honest. A broken young woman and her dangerous father threaten his life, but he has no harsh words for them,” (Iannone 243-278). Tom Robinson was never the evil that society thought he was and has to pay the greatest price for racism, his own life. His image was twisted by society because of his appearance, which causes the real evil in this situation to be the family who accused him and the citizens who sealed his

The novel reflects this theme as Irving states, “Watch out for people who call themselves religious; make sure you know what they mean - make sure they know what they mean” (Irving 504). This quotation highlights different trivial religions. There are always differences between beliefs and individuals, even if they belong to the exact same branch of Christianity. When John thinks about Owen’s time on earth, he begins to wonder that God would not have let his own child die so young. This leads to other questions such as why Owen knew everything that he knew, and why he had such faith in a God that eventually let him die so young.
Misunderstandings As represented in the story “A Good Man Is Hard to Find” by Flannery O 'Connor, a good man was hard to be and had different ideas of how to pursue it. Going through the journey with the grandmother and son and learning about the Misfit, the audience can witness the actions being made by different characters to witness their fall and/or their triumph. When looking into the grandmother more deeply, the audience can detect the intensity of her self absorption. She would consider herself a lady with high standards of herself. “In case of an accident, anyone seeing her dead on the highway would know at once that she was a lady” (O’Connor 297).
They were slips of paper that were signed by the pope that forgave someone of sin so they can go to heaven. They were a prime source of income for the church even though it is controversial since the church takes a vow of poverty. The corruption of the church was witnessed by a man named Martin Luther. He became a monk after being struck by lightning. He witnessed the corruption of the church and was strictly against it.
Jesus or the Pharisees? Patrick Darnell began his speech by hitting the audience with this quote by Gandhi: “I like Jesus, but sometimes I do not like his followers because they can be so much unlike Him.” At TedX Augusta, Darnell presented the idea that Christians have moved far beyond their original purpose. Christ set aside a perfect path for His followers to walk down, but we stray from the path. Worldliness all around can poison the mind if we let it enter our thoughts. The church is meant to be followers modeling Christ; the reputation it has now gained is more like the Pharisees.
The first example is in Much Ado About Nothing when the loving Leonato turns his back to his daughter. Leonato is friendly throughout the story until his honor is harmed by the accusations of Claudio towards his daughter and then he turns his back on her in rage since of it. The next example is in the same poem where the villain Don John is revealed to still do his devious act because of his honor not wanting to fit into the Prince’s garden. This was revealed to the reader first, but Benedick always had suspicions. Another example of this happening is in the book The Outsiders, when Johnny gave his life to save the kids in the church and was honored by everyone for his sacrifice.
Marriages are often avoided or ignored because the world implies it is harmful. It is necessary for married Christians and the Church to guide our lost culture and prove marriage has value. Tim Keller, a Christian author, says, "Men, you'll never be a good groom to your wife unless you're first a good bride to Jesus." The aim for every
