Since Christianity and religion were so diligently practiced: “Christians wanted everyone else to be Christian as well, they often got into fights with people of other faiths. Sometimes Christians tried to get rid of all the Jews living near them, either by converting them or by killing them or by making the Jews move somewhere else” (Carr). Medieval and Ancient Greek times were centered solely around religion. The Greeks honored their gods and goddesses by holding religious festivals. Many of these festivals centered on sports, like the Olympics.
This quote shows that many Thebans have died from the plague that the Gods have unleashed. One can also argue that they seem this way due to the fact that they waited till Oedipus had become the king of Thebes to punish him and his parents for attempting to go against his prophecy and in turn, attempting to disobey the word of the Gods. However, their not interrupting with Oedipus’ fate can be correlated to the belief that our fates are pre-determined and irreversible, it may have been impossible for the Gods to interfere even if they wanted to. This shows how powerful the ruling cosmic order of fate was; even the Gods could not act against it. The Gods also give an impression of being easily angered as Oedipus essentially wanted to prevent his horrible fate of killing his father and bedding his mother, which is a reasonable notion but Oedipus still angered the Gods despite his honest
some of us know, the Crusades is not something that we enjoy discussing, but they were a big part of religious history. The Crusades were what the pope called “holy wars or expeditions,” that knights or people of their religion went on to gain control over holy land. Each Crusade had a social, economic, and/or political goal and aimed for one land at a time. The pope even exclaimed that if you went on a Crusade that you were assured a place in heaven. These Crusades, or “holy wars”, were driven by religious faith within varieties of religion like Muslims and Christians.
In the Middle Kingdom, gods were believed to care for all of its people and not just the Divine Monarch (Wallech, 2013, p. 60). The rulers cared for the kingdom 's people which showed a sharp change in attitudes toward people. No longer was the ruler placed on a pedestal and treated like untouchable royalty. Treating citizens as a part of society assisted Egypt in growing and becoming successful in trade, writing and protecting itself. In Babylonia, the people were treated as sacred to the kingdom while outsiders were viewed as alien (Wallech, 2013, p.43).

George Wilson saw them as the eyes of God. But others may see them differently. They can be seen as the the universe watching over the people in the story, or maybe they are seen as karma. His purpose in this story was to make people paranoid and guilty about the things they have done, which is the reason so many people thought Dr. Eckleburg's eyes were representing God or some other higher power. Owl Eyes was also involved quite a bit in The Great Gatsby.
In “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” Johnathan Edwards uses rhetorical devices such as metaphors, similes and personifications. He uses these in order to scare his audience about Hell and to obey God and his message. In order to get people to follow his message and take his warnings, he uses tactics to scare people into in believing their unfortunate fates if they aren’t obedient to God and the Bible. Edwards uses descriptive images such as metaphors to compare his people to loathsome spiders.
It is essential for followers of Christ to know their Holy Book to avoid falling prey to false teaching. To fully understand scripture one must realize who gives scripture its authority, how accurate it is, its existence with science as well as how it is interpreted. Many of these topics can be seen as contradictory, and maybe there is no clear-cut answer to some of them, but these are topics that stretch ones ' faith and can facilitate growth. Inspiration The Bible, as we know, has gone through significant changes to get to its current stage. The majority of the bible was orally recited because only a few were learned while the majority of the old world was illiterate.
However, the Bible also gives us examples of people who put to death their worldly passions and pursue righteousness through the discipline of self-control. In the Old Testament, a man named David was chosen to be king during the reign of King Saul. King Saul was jealous of David and wanted him dead so he searched for David in order to kill him. On one particular outing of Saul and his men who were searching to kill David there arose a certain opportunity for David to kill Saul. Saul was in cave and was very vulnerable while David was also deeper inside the cave.
I looked at it once again then I remembered my father telling me a story about a box that had horrible creatures that destroyed everything, I thought it was legend. Yet once I saw the symbol of the box I froze, and whispered “The box of Darkness. ”I didn’t react fast enough but when I did I saw my father go away,I quickly went to Pandora, and told her “ Pandora you must never, never open this box ever.” She asked “Why?” I responded by saying” It’s a curse you’ll regret even if u just peak in it, please trust me.”

Ancient Egyptians also would go to the pyramids to worship their gods and make sacrifices (Aztec History). When The Great Pyramid of Giza was constructed, it was built to also enclose the tombs and the belongings of the dead. By examining the ancient artifacts historians have been able to see what the Egyptians found important and necessary to have with them in the afterlife.
But at the same time farmers should have a limit of water they can waste for their needs. There are some farmers that have dams that they own,so pretty much they can open the river when they want and the water will flow in a river for the animals to drink. I think that’s a waste of water because the water flows everyday and it just goes to waste. Some farmers might say that they need the water, that how are they just going to let more than 100 cows die. I think those people just care about the money, because it only helps their needs.
