He also gives the audience a better understanding by giving a visual glimpse of what the black community had to endure. Dr. King also included definitions and examples of unjust and just laws, and how they are not right. He included an example of these “laws” by talking about the things Adolf Hitler did was allowed but supposedly helping someone was not allowed. He writes and uses the letter to show the white Americans that are unaware of what is happening around them. Even, though Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is best remembered for his powerful voice and pathos in this letter is a thoughtful logical argument.
Malcolm X is controversial, he said that equality should be attained "by any means necessary". Many think Malcolm X only preached violence and hate, others think of him as doing what was necessary. While he didn’t advocated peace, he helped to empower people to stand up for their rights. This was Malcolm’s goal and shows that he had good intentions. However, his good intentioned were covered up by his flaws.
Justice is the legal or philosophical theory by which fairness is administered. Concepts of justice may differ based on your society 's practices, beliefs, and feelings. According to Michael Sandel, in his book, Justice: What 's the Right Thing to Do, an important concept of implementing justice is giving all individuals what they deserve. The difficulty of this concept is settling who deserves what and why. Kreon left Polyneices unburied and sent Antigone away to die alone, merely because it is what the two deserved.
Besides King using pathos, he also makes use of strong ethical appeals with true hard facts. Dr. King’s many sources adds strength to his argument, and presents it masterfully. To clarify his sources, he refers to the need for action throughout history with educational examples such as St. Thomas Aquinas, Paul Tillich, Hitler, and Martin Buber. These examples are advance and ancient, which shows that King did his homework. The Alabama clergymen considered King as an outsider, but with his ethical appeals he presents himself as an insider.
By the end it is made prevalent that we as a human race need to accept out fate, but as well as put work towards it. The author discusses how a worldview of these religious connections makes being alive an instinctive feeling. This source could be used to appeal to the reader’s moral interpretation of how reality works. It shows how the Pauline theology is combined with Christianity. These theories are made because they are very important in decoding dicks thoughts and reasoning’s.
He especially reacted against the sacraments of penance and purgatory. Luther built his case based on his studies of Paul’s letters to the Romans and the Galatians. For him, saving grace comes not from the righteousness we perform, but is entirely an alien (foreign) righteousness from Christ credited to our account. He called this the doctrine of Justification by Faith alone. While Luther understood faith as the means of justification, he also understood the ground of justification to be nothing more than the grace and mercy of God shown to sinners because of the perfect life and work of Christ.
"(McCullough 3) With the inclusion of these biblical parallels it can be said that the bible itself is a major structure of Huckleberry's adventure, which pushes him physically in a direction of biblical based adventures. He draws a parallel between the morality of his character in relation to religion, in which his is not the 'right kind', and supports that right and wrong can be decided by religion and he does so to his own morality. Along with his morals being structured based on the bible, his narrative is itself a parody of biblical stories. Thus he begins creating a moral compass essentially based on religious views of what is right and wrong, virtue and sin, guiding him though a real life imitation of bible
Although some passages in the second essay may point to atheism, I believe that, overall, his critique of religion seems to primarily stem from his animosity towards the way in which religious belief has manifested itself in society, rather than belief in God or religious belief as a whole. In the first essay, Nietzsche discusses the etymology of the words “good” and “bad” and how they have evolved over time to have completely different meanings, meanings that he does not agree with, due to the priestly class. Prior to this transvaluation, good meant noble and powerful while bad meant poor or common (Nietzsche, 28). The “good” were able to exercise their will to power and
The Christian view of their God is very different; theirs is a God of purpose. Christian ideology might have been shaped by years of creeds and confessions as it tried to make sense of this incomprehensible Being, yet the basics of these creeds remain fairly faithful to the portrait given by the Bible. God is one (Deuteronomy 6:4) yet speaks of a second person (Exodus 23:20-21) who is equal with God (Philippians 2:6). The Bible also speaks of a third person (Psalm 33:6) who is also equal with God (Job 33:4). Christianity thus believes in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit who are separate but equal aspects of the same God.
