Elie used to be a happy little boy with a normal life like any other kid. That was until the germans came and took over everything.
They also pray for wholeness during the prayer night at the church, simply because God moves in them and they feel the need for redemption. Gabriel, during his time of prayer, recalls one night when he is heading home from a night of partying and sinful endeavors. As he was walking home, he believed the Lord was indirectly calling out to him, the weary sinner, and he yelled out, “‘Oh, Lord, have mercy! Oh Lord, have mercy on me!’” (107). But after this instance, Gabriel got into and out of sin numerous times, only to believe he had gotten right with God after so many times of asking for redemption.
Also, Hale almost played as an interrogator when he was giving rapid fire questions to John about his Christian character and if he goes to church in his visit to the Proctor house (Miller 171). In the beginning acts, Hale was trusting the court more than John and was a big part of handling warrants of the accused individuals along with having much confidence in himself, his knowledge of witchcraft, and knowledge of witches in Salem. In Act 2 and 3 in the play, The Crucible by Arthur Miller, the character Reverend Hale was changing a lot. Throughout the first act of this play Reverend Hale had much of his trust in the court and fully believed the devil is in Salem but as the trial begins and goes on things start to change when Hale starts to question the court shown when he pleads
And while it almost broke him, he prayed and God assured him that his children were in a better place. The Puritans were always afraid of death and scared that they would go to Hell. So, Puritans made every effort to be the best they could be in the optimism that they were one of the Elect chosen by God. But, Taylor knew that he was of the Elect and that his children would ascend to heaven as well. The Puritans viewed death as a blessed relief from the judgments of this world into the blisses of everlasting life.

Great crowds followed Him wherever He went and a sight of hungry hearts seeking either spiritual fulfilment or satisfactory fame were a common sight in His presence. As the crowds grew the Lord Jesus willingly sat down and taught them. He preached the Gospel to everyone who wanted to hear it and denied no one His knowledge or time. In the Sermon on the Mount He proposes that sharing the Gospel and being the salt of the earth is a responsibility of every
However, last year I went through a trial in my life where I was ambivalent towards God. I depended on my works for God to be pleased with me and actually love me. I feared His rejection and I became dependent on my self-righteousness. However, God stayed with me and proved His unconditional love over and over. He healed my mind and brought me back into a trusting love relationship with Him.
After Watergate, the only thing that mattered to Colson was having a right relationship with Christ and ministering the grace he had received to as many people as possible. Psalm 25:4-5 says, “Make me to know your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths. Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation; for you I wait all the day long.” Matthew 5:6 says “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be satisfied” both of these versus speaks into how Colson thought, felt, and acted. Charles Colson’s life is a powerful testimony to the transforming power of the Gospel. 1 Corinthians 15:47-49 perfectly describes Colson when it says, “One who bore the image of the man of dust became one who bore the image of the man of Heaven.” Colson wrote “The real story was that Christ had reached down to me, even in my disgrace and shame, and revealed Himself as the One who forgives and makes new.
The question had never entered my head. I wept because of something inside me that felt the need for tears”. Based on Wiesel’s response, it showed the level of his faith toward God.

This is exactly what the sniper is going through over the course of the narrative. If you know that you will feel like that every day, and still go through with your mission. You are either the very brave or a complete idiot. To be a sniper you must have immeasurable bravery, and overcome your fear. This was very well depicted on paragraph 17 “the cloud of fear scattered from his mind and he laughed.’’ Many do not think of snipers as brave because they “shoot their opponent when their back is turned.” But, if you are able to go through the previous experiences without going completely crazy, you are considered very brave to me.
Tim not only is faithful at home but also is very open about it on the football field, praying before every game and talking about his faith during interviews. “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander” (The Holy Bible, 1 Peter 3:15-16). Many people in the world could be Christians but could be to scared to stand up to their faith if anyone turns it down.
Finally, the last characteristic Simon possesses is that he is devotedly faithful. He is an enormous believer of God and loves sharing his faith with other people. This is proven during various conversations with Reverend Russell and his best friend, Joe Wenteworth. When Simon is talking to the reverend, he suggests that God made him the way he is for a reason and says, “I think I 'm God 's instrument - that he 's gonna use me to carry out his plan.” Despite the reverend not agreeing to this statement, Simon still has faith he is. The last occurrence when Simon is faithful is when he is continually encouraging Joe to be joyful.
