And because dust is a sign of sexual awareness ,when Adam and Eve ate the apple became aware of their nakedness ,therefore dust roams around the adults and their daemons settle ,but the children are innocent and away from sex ,so that the church wants to protect them from becoming experienced .But Pullman is against their view. He says we should not feel ashamed because we are alive. (Anne-Marie Bird, Dust as Metaphor,264). I agree Pullman and Anne Bird,
They lived together happily. But one day, Adam and Eve were expeled from the beautiful garden because they hagate the fruit from the forbidden tree. After that, many people were born. They were wicked and forget God, except Noah. One day God let Noah and his family make an ark for thenselves.
I will discuss the following themes firstly, ‘’Will and Grace’’ in Judeo-Christian myth of ‘’The Fall’’ it is the one dominant stories in literature , this myth provides the answer of how the universe was made and how humanity began and it is based on clear classification of good and bad, innocence and experience, Like Adam and Eve, who exist in a condition of grace before the Fall, Since Lyra "fell"— grew up, began desiring knowledge—individuals picked up the privilege to choose how they need to live. In Pullman's reality, this privilege is extremely attractive, yet it means that everybody needs to live without grace and without the solace and protection of a higher force. The second theme is ‘’freedom through knowledge’’ The most hostile
Even when it seems that all is lost, Basil begs Dorian to “Pray” and to repeat the verse from the Bible that says, “‘Though our sins be as scarlet, yet I will make them white as snow’” (Wilde 162). This makes Basil godlike because not only does it show the selflessness that God is known for, but it also shows that Basil carries the responsibility for what has happened. Basil shoulders the blame for Dorian’s sins, as god carried the sins of man. Dorian might hope that by killing the source of sins, and ridding himself of the constant reminder that Basil forms, will diminish his anxiety and improve his life, however the opposite
He encouraged sinners to a clear message, to be righteous as he compares between the ninety-nine sheep to one lost sheep. However, it seems the ninety-nine are more valuable than the lost one. According to the Gospel, Jesus asked, “which one of you having a hundred sheep, and losing one of them, does not have the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the one that is lost until he finds it?” this comparison was significant for tax collectors, who thought themselves sinners, it shows God’s mercy over everybody even sinners. They are valuable in the sight of God, and God cares about them, whatever their sins were, whenever they did it. In addition, Jesus implies a new idea about intention and how it is more important than what someone have done through his life.
The first and last stanzas of the poem almost perfectly mirror one another except for one word. The word “Could” (4) becomes “Dare” (24) in the final stanza which suggests that Blake is asking how dare God create such a terrible beast. He even questions if there is a sadistic motivation behind God’s creation of the Tyger; “Did he smile his work to see?” (19) However, there is a redeeming gem of hope embedded in the poem. In the next line Blake asks, “Did he who made the lamb make thee?” (20) suggesting that he understands God, first, as the creator of peace. Additionally, each stanza in the poem obeys an AABB rhyme scheme except for the repeated stanza.
Paul explains to them that they did not receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the law of Moses but by having faith in the Lord. Paul reminds all the people of Galatia that when Jesus died on the cross, “He rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law.”6 Paul tells the Galatians that they have been given the same blessings as God has promised to Abraham so that through faith and only faith that they could receive the Holy Spirit. Paul admits that the law was given to show people their sins, however, the law was to last only until the coming of the child that was promised to Abraham. The reasoning of law’s purpose is written in the way that Paul said “The law was our guardian until Christ came”7. Now that Christ had came the way of the law was no longer needed to keep the people in line.
In the Book of Genesis, it states “Lord God took the man, and put him into the Garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it” (Gen. 2:15). Adam and Eve are both thought to be required to look after and maintain Eden, however, Eve seems to be the only one of the pair even thinking about tending to the garden and being productive. Eve even goes as far to propose Adam and herself split work keeping up paradise, Adam states “nothing lovelier can be found / In woman, than to study household good, / And good works in her husband to promote” (Book IX, 232-234). Immediately, Adam believes a women's job is to tend to domestic and household work, while he does not yet possess a clear idea of what his own work should consist of. Adam’s immediate inequality speaks as ignorant to modern readers of Paradise Lost, however, Milton entrusts and grants Eve to control domestic issues, playing to the mid-sixteen-hundreds views on femininity.
Adam reminds the reader that Eve is still free from blame and sin. “Daughter of God and Man, immortal Eve, For such thou art, From sin and entire.” Just because Eve goes into the Garden of Eden alone does not entirely mean that Eve is a sinner. Diction such as “Daughter of God and Man” shows Eve is a special being of God which in turn shows that Eve might justify that her actions are to be alright to God, which may be one of the reasons she eats the forbidden fruit (Eve ’s sin). Then with diction like, “from sin and blame entirely” comforts Adam into thinking Eve couldn’t possibly sin and sending them to eternal damnation. This passage also conveys the idea of innocence and purity.
In this we are sane in that we know it is not an original concept associated with him, as it was unknown to John and apparently to Mark as well. We know something as significant as the birth of him would have been known to all the Gospel writers if it had indeed been a virgin birth. It is for this reason the dream associated with Joseph appears to be fictional where he saw an angel telling him about immaculate conception. It is obvious to a discerning mind that these discrepancies of nature crept into the mindset of people after he emigrated away from Palestine under the auspices of scholars like Paul and other apostles who deviated from his teachings in order to bring his message to the masses of people they wish to impress. Jesus himself mentioned himself as being the Son of Man which indicates here that Mary being a virgin at the time of conception is a misnomer in that she
