Comparing Did you know that Anne Bradstreet and Jonathan Edwards are very similar? Well Bradstreet and Edwards are both Puritans and have a strong faith even though Bradstreet's faith came throughout her experiences in life and Edwards was born into it. They both believe that there are strict rules on how to be obedient and a good servant in the eyes of god. Even though they have similar beliefs and morals they both have some differences, like their way of preaching, Edwards preaches in a very harsh way to scare his listeners into the hands of god, while Bradstreet says as long as you are good and obey God he will reward you and you will have a happy life but if you disobey him then he will take away your blessings. Bradstreet and Edwards are both very famous authors, and have very famous poetry.
While both Luther and Erasmus are seeking to expose the necessity of reform in religious intuitions, both have their own distinct methods of doing so. In fact they are quite opposite to one another in their methods. Luther’s tactics of focusing on improving the faith on conscience of everyday Christians is more direct approach that directly defies the church. Erasmus’ tactic of buttering up his worries with the church in a comedic story makes for a much more subtle move that keeps the church from attacking him outright and slowly plants the idea of church reform in his audience’s minds. Luther focuses on a direct approach to reforming Christianity.
Even when confronted with social and physical threats, religion motives him to aid Tom Robinson. He admits his reasons, telling Scout, “This case, Tom Robinson’s case, is something that goes to the essence of a man’s conscience—Scout, I couldn’t go to church and worship God if I didn’t try to help that man.” (139) Instead of causing him to yell at an old lady or divide races, religion convicts Atticus to defend an innocent man. This man held his faith closer than his reputation, and allowed it to influence his thoughts and actions. At the end of the day it’s a little bit clearer, and that's all you can say for religion influencing To Kill A Mockingbird. It's a struggle, it's a war, and there's various effects on different people.
Through his humility, wisdom, and courage, Atticus demonstrates a strong commitment to morality and desire to establish justice in his community. Atticus' moral compass influences his everyday actions, and his admirable qualities make him a popular figure in Maycomb. Although
By using the rhetorical features, MLK’s speech reached a different level of effectiveness for his audience. Using credibility, authority, trustworthiness and similarity to build a relationship by using evidence, MLK achieved ethos. Then by stating his values and creating imagery achieved but hos vocabulary he effective used pathos. Finally, by his clarity, goals, evidence and consistency, MLK appropriately reached his audience logical and effectively using logos. Martin Luther King Jr. is remembered for his great speeches, accomplishments and his leadership skills, but also for the sincerity of his heart for the freedom and unity of all people.
When reading the speech, it does not make sense but when hearing the speech, it can be understandable on why Edwards used many commas and semicolons. 13. His text is persuasive because Edwards is trying to convince the audience to follow God and to not commit sins. This is effective because during the time period, religion was one of the main concerns. A persuasive text, in my opinion, would be one that convinces the audience to do what the reading intends.
He also described the church as a White man’s religious space by talking about the authenticity of the church if right measures are not taken. Kings message here conveys a sense of urgency as well as panic that behavior of people can change for Church as well. He used phrases like “judgment of God” to tell the reader about the dismissal of God regarding this justice. It produces the sense of fear (Pathos) in a reader and hints the reader to change if he does not want God’s
Hester’s words are meant to be taken literally because of the community’s strong beliefs regarding religion, and that is how the townspeople interperate them, but they are also meant to refer to Dimmesdale. Dimmesdale, being a priest, is a man of God, therefore, in a way, being the “heavenly father,” and “earthly one,” (63) that Hester speaks about. As a priest with a high position who engaged in sin with one of the women of the congregation, Arthur Dimmesdale speaks ironically when he attempts to convince her to reveal the name of the man she committed this sin
John Winthrop uses Tenets of Calvinism in his writings by "and so teaches us to put a difference between Christians and others. ' Do good to all, especially those of the household of faith'. Winthrop shows total depravity in that he recognizes the difference between sinners and Christians using his beliefs that man was born sinful. He also uses limited atonement in that Christ died for his certain people but it is those certain people that are supposed to influence others to follow Christ. He also says that we are "to serve the lord and work out our own salvation under the power and purity of his holy ordinances."
Paul was concerned about one’s conscience and he tried to reform one’s conscience to the word of God. Carson explained what it takes to become an apostle and showed how Jesus impacted Paul’s life. Paul understood when he became saved he was transformed by the blood of Jesus; however, he understood the need to be flexible for winning souls. Paul realized the need to be like others to gain access to people for the sake of evangelism. Paul understood
Often in the sermons pastors persuade their audience to behave in a spiritual or more fashion. Such is the case in Jonathan Edwards “Sinners in the hands of an Angry God” where he sends sinners to hell, who do not repent. Edwards wanted to impact his audience by appealing to their fears, pity and vanity. Edwards had a powerful impact on his puritan audience because of his use of a cautionary tone, clear imagery and complex figurative language. Foremost, Edwards has a powerful impact on his puritan audience because of his use of a cautionary tone.
Other people felt that they were being called by God to protect their local area from the sins of the world, including people who were visiting for the sake of civil rights. Both of these forms of action were based on each group’s interpretation of Christianity. Reverend Hudgins had a different interpretation of Christianity from both of these groups. Hudgins believed religion was about individual salvation and keeping your affairs
Scriptural rambling can bring confusion to younger Christians because they are not equipped yet to follow. However, when it comes to the older Christians, can feed their pride and lead to sin. Collins stated,”the purpose of the sermon is to edify the congregation in their faith, not to convince them that you swallowed a chain reference Bible or a seminary Rolodex.” Therefore, we should only use and teach messages that the congregations can
In some parts of the world, Christians continue to visit other traditional religious practitioners because their new faith seems to lack power to confront the problems that their old faith addressed. Elsewhere, however, local Christians reading the Bible have recognized that God’s power is greater than that of its putative competitors and have learned to pray to God for their various needs. - Concluding Comment Our task is defensive, not offensive descried in Ephesians. We do not defeat Satan, but Christ. Our duty as outlined in Ephesians is to resist Satan, not to remove him.
